Manual massage has been practised for thousands of years and the psychological and physiological benefits are well researched. My in-house clients, here in south-east Queensland, know that I am passionate about the benefits of massage and its importance in my facials.

The therapeutic benefits of massage on your body include:

  • Promoting circulation which brings fresh nutrients and oxygen to your cells
  • Increasing your skin’s sebaceous secretion to bring moisture to the surface
  • Reducing the formation of growths like skin tags
  • Boosting lymph flow which helps remove toxins from your body
  • Relaxing tense muscles and improving muscle tone
  • Breaking down fatty deposits (reducing cellulite)
  • Breaking down scar tissue

Fight Free Radicals With Antioxidants

RADICAL BEAUTY – Fight Free Radicals With Antioxidants

What on earth are free radicals?

You may have heard about them, but do you know what free radicals are or how they affect you and your skin?

Free radicals are good cells gone rogue. They are unstable molecules that are missing an electron which is why they will attack the nearest stable molecule in an attempt to steal the electrons to make itself whole. The attacked molecule then becomes a free radical and sets off a chain reaction. Basically, when a healthy cell goes over to the dark side, they become a free radical and search-and-destroy mission for other, healthy cells.

These particles make cells malfunction – and nobody wants a dysfunctional face! Basically because, the more free radicals that are present in our skin, the faster we age.

What causes a healthy cell to turn into a free radical?
