BioGenesis Organic Superfood
Supplements are by no means a new phenomenon, the last few years have seen major growth in the industry. The quality and where they are sourced is ultimately as a Naturopath and Nutritionist what I know is of outmost importance to our Health.
It is important to know that Biogenesis vision is to produce the highest quality and most nutrient-rich Australian health products available on the market.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, stress is at an all time high. Our current situation is unusual; the major cause of our heightened stress levels COVID-19 – is beyond the limits of our control. However, there are a number of practices we can do to support and strengthen our immune systems, with high quality supplements like Biogenesis and help manage our mental health by including meditation in our every day lives.
It is a positive time with people wanting to take care of their health so much now, more than ever and in a world full of wellness trends, it’s hard to know what is legitimate and what is, glorified. Are you looking for the next best thing to boost your immune system, reduce stress and just make you feel and look good?
We are constantly told on a regular basis that good health starts from within. What is happening internally is reflected externally. If we are eating poorly, we feel blah, and break out. If we are tired, we have dark circles and no energy. If we are dehydrated, our skin becomes irritated and flaky and aged. All of which we can fix with healthier eating habits, more sleep and more water.
Here is a supplement that is one of the originals in health and wellbeing. A Superfood that has been studied for years and has withheld the test of time. One of my favourite supplements that I have always had in my cupboard.
This one is more special than the others because it is a newbie to the Aussie Market, it is Organic and Natural, Australian Made and Owned since 2017.
How do they do this? With pure, natural Australian-grown superfoods that are good for your health and good for the planet.
Biogenesis is proudly 100% Australian owned and operated.
In fact, they are the only ‘Australian Made, Australian Grown’ licensed producer of Chlorella and Spirulina in Australia. From their farm in tropical Queensland, right through to packing and distribution, their products are grown and processed in Australia to the highest quality standard.
The Health Benefits
Chlorella is known for its impressive health benefits and it’s certainly caught the attention of nutrition and health experts in the last few years.
This powerful superfood has been proven to increase energy, eliminate toxins, promote brain health, boost immunity, support fat loss, strengthen bones and joints, and repair and build muscle.
A supplement for not just for a beauty glow:
Radiant Eyes, Shiny Hair, Extra Energy and Glowing skin.
Chlorella is extremely alkalising in the body and helps balance against acidic elements in the diet, including packaged processed foods, sodas, and animal products. It’s almost 50 percent protein, with all essential amino acids to form a complete protein, B vitamins, vitamin E, and carotenoids — chlorella not only contributes to beautiful skin and hair, but it can help ward off hunger, so it is also great support for people who want a diet and weightless supplement.
My Experience with taking Biogenesis.
I was always a fan of spirulina first, But then I discovered that chlorella has TEN times more chlorophyll than spirulina!
Because it is so high in minerals, micronutrients as well as macronutrients, it really helps keep me satisfied. The tablets are really handy to have in your handbag so that if you don’t have access to snacks or food then they are a supportive supplement. I like to really chew them, then you taste the pure plant protein.
I really like the taste- and I hope you do also! Drink water with them.
It is important to make sure to only buy “cracked cell wall chlorella” because they are completely absorbable and best for the health of your beautiful body.
To ensure Chlorella is readily digestible, Biogenesis have developed an innovative process called ‘BioDynamic Cracking’ which breaks the cell wall of each Chlorella to ensure all the nutrients can be easily absorbed by the body. Other producers mechanically pulverise or grind the Chlorella leaving the internal nutrients susceptible to oxidisation and nutritional degradation. Or they don’t crack the cell wall at all – lessening the ability for nutrients to be absorbed.
Among many things, chlorella helps pull heavy metals out of the system, including mercury, lead, and cadmium. These metals can get in from our food supply and pollution, and can lodge all over the body, affecting everything. Chlorophyll also gives tremendous energy, and can help balance the body, assisting with fertility.
Chlorella also has around 92 trace minerals, vitamins, glycolipids, phycocyanin, sulfolips, carotenoids, superoxide dismutase, RNA and DNA, and is loaded with beta-carotene.
I love to research and educate and use only premium products, I hope this has given you inspiration for your wellness journey.
Note: Before supplementing, it’s important to talk to your doctor or health care professional.
Here comes the Sun.
Summer 2020 is around the corner.
I would love to share with you my secrets to help you love your body and make you feel the best you can inside and out.
Create a life you love living so much that you don’t feel the need to indulge and eat junk food too many times per week. But I also believe in FUN too…..It is not about will power or deprivation it is ultimately about RESPECTING your body and LOVING it!!! By elevating your health and happiness! I have noticed if I am stressed and not exercising and eating unhealthy food, I feel sad and toxic!!! This ultimately shows on my skin, you know it is a reflection of your overall health. It is the body’s largest organ and it is an elimination organ.
Toxins inside your body can make the skin on the outside of your body look less than beautiful.
Take care and saturate your body with alive organic fruits and vegetables, purified water and a positive mind.
This Summer I want you to be balanced and love your body.
I am also sharing my secrets with you, I have had some support with feeding my body with antioxidant rich foods and non invasive treatments to keep my cellulite and skin tone tight.
I have been preparing my body for Summer and bikini weather with the support of a healthy alkaline diet rich in good fats and I feel cleaner eating plant based protein.
My go to dinner is chilli Mexican black bean and pumpkin nachos. YUM!
Eating black seeds, grains, and beans brings vitality, energy, and reproductive health back into the body, especially for one who is chronically ill or fatigued.
This is because in Traditional Chinese Medicine your kidney meridian health determines your own Qi (vital life force and defense against chronic illness/effects of aging. If I am feeling drained and exhausted I up my kidney supporting foods!!!!
Drink purified water.
Alkaline mineral water that hydrates you immediately at a cellular level! I have https://zazenalkalinewater.com.au/products/zazen-alkaline-water-system
For extra support I have also been attending a body contour clinic in Melbourne, Miss Cheri, to help eliminate fluid retention and smooth and tighten my skin as well as reduce cellulite. They use state of the art technology the Vela Shape 3 is my secret to help tone and tighten the collagen in my skin.
As a person ages, their body produces less collagen. This lack of collagen results in the common signs of aging. Wrinkles, sagging skin that has lost its elasticity, and stiff joints are all signs that the body is producing less collagen.
When collagen levels are high, the skin is soft, smooth, and firm. Collagen helps the skin cells renew and repair themselves.
If your energy stores are depleted and you are in need of a pick-me-up, consider dry body brushing to stimulate oxygen distribution throughout the body, and aid in speeding up the body’s natural process of detoxification.
Keeping your blood flowing and promoting lymph drainage can help keep your skin glowing! Dry brushing is a technique that improves circulation and promotes lymph draining.
- Use a soft, natural bristled brush.
- Dry brush before your shower every morning.
- Use a light pressure as you brush.
- Starting at your feet, brush in small movements up towards your heart.
- When you are done, take a shower.
All of this has helped me to support my beauty and body glow.
Take care and love your body, nourish it and tell it you love it!
Enjoy your Summer.

Hey Angels! ♡ People often ask me how I keep my skin so clear. And of course I want to share my little beauty secrets with you.
When it comes to a natural beauty glow, the inescapable truth is, a high quality anti inflammatory alkalining diet, pure water and essential beauty sleep should be the backbone of your approach with balance of exercise like yoga for mindfulness and then supported by regular treatments and good active skincare sourced by the best dermal clinician.
I have been having regular treatments for the past year with the with out a doubt BEST skin clinicians in Melbourne at Victorian Dermal Group
I have had Clear and Brilliant laser, Ultra Former III, which is (The World’s No. 1 Choice for non-invasive Skin Lifting & Tightening treatments.) And Fraxel. (which I will go into further detail below, as this has been a game changer for me!!!) I have also had TCA to target scars on my skin as well as regular Light therapy and chemical peels every month with extractions. So, you can see I have been treating my skin with a lot of love!!!
Let me tell you about the latest treatment I have had done.
Summer skin starts in Winter! So, now it is Winter in Melbourne and is the BEST time to repair and resurface the skin. Let’s be honest, when it comes to skin treatments, my motto is ‘no pain, no gain’…
The painful ones are working because they’re damaging, whatever, making your collagen renewal and renewing your skin like a reboot. Fraxel Laser, is kind of painful for a reason, because it is doing quite deep damage to create fresh clean pure beautiful skin. It’s not really unbearable pain, more satisfying!!!
When it comes to our skin, we all want a beauty glow that is healthy and radiates. And while there are plenty of products and treatments out there, sometimes we may need something a little more vigorous and invasive than a topical treatment to treat major skin concerns such as open pores, wrinkles, scarring and age spots. This is where cosmetic procedures such as FRAXEL is what you need to do! The mechanism of Fraxel heavily relies on resurfacing your skin by stimulating the growth of new, healthy skins cells from the inside out.
LADIES & GENTLEMEN I cannot tell you enough how much I push for you to try this! After 1 treatment I am having such great results. I am LEGIT so Happy I could cry.
HONESTLY You’ll see benefits… Fraxel significantly improves quality and skin health, so anyone who has prematurely aged their skin with too much sun kissing exposure will benefit enormously from treatment. Not only will the skin be stronger and more hydrated, wrinkles will be softened and you’ll see a reduction in pigmentation. The overall effect is a noticeably younger cleaner complexion. I truely believe that Fraxel is also the gold standard treatment for acne, trauma or surgical scarring. The results are immediate and progressive. Soon after treatment the surface of your skin will feel softer and smoother, brighter and more even skin tone. The next 3-6 months will bring more improvement as your skin continues to create more collagen.
You’ll need to be incognito for???… It’s an important question, as it’s super crucial that you know what to expect. You will have a healing phase of seven days, of which the first three to four days are the most obvious. You are extremely RED post-procedure, with that sunburnt feeling. Mild swelling starts post-procedure, and is at its full peak the morning after, lasting a day or so. The skin will feel then feel really rough for up to a week where it goes brown and ultimately this is actually a really positive thing as it’s all the old dead and damaged cells shedding off the skin, leaving fresh, vibrant, healthy new baby skin complexion.
You’ll need to pop in again… It depends on the extent of damage, and that’s part of the reason you need a personalised skinconsultation with Derya https://victoriandermalgroup.com.au/about-us/ prior to your appointment. Some people do three treatments, six weeks apart and others that just do a treatment once a year.
I highly recommended you book an appointment to see Derya and transform your skin this Winter! Its ultimately the BEST time to heal and deal with renewing a lifetime of summer damage.

SUPPLE SKIN CO
After all, our skin is an outer glow of our inner health and beauty, and how we care for it from the outside, as well as the inside, is SO important.
The good news is that, people are waking up and are aware of the green movement, now more than ever we are seeing skincare product manufacturers making a difference to avoid using toxic ingredients and chemicals in their skincare products.
This is why I support local Aussie brands like Supple Skin Co. A Hemp skin perfecting serum.
I think this is the way of the future as more people are conscious of using natural and eco friendly products. I heavily believe in reducing your toxic load, and one of the many concerns I have with most commercial, popular brands of skincare products is they contain toxic ingredients and petroleum product derivatives that can both contribute to toxicity. Your skin is an organ through which chemicals are absorbed.

The ladies are European trained semi permanent makeup practitioners.
Their role is to enhance your natural beauty through gentle cosmetic procedures.
I had my Lips Tinted in the Wild Rose and Magnolia colour.
~Picture taken post first Lip Tattoo treatment. I am only wearing clear lip gloss over the pigment~
What to ask for: Semi permanent lip tattoo. Replacing the lip’s lost border gives a more youthful appearance, re-defining natural lip contour for a more perfect pout! It’s also a great way to create the illusion of a fuller pout without injections, and correct proportion to balance the lips while leaving a beautiful hue so you don’t need lipstick.
Details: There are a range of colours to chose which are vegan, organic and manufactured with 30 years experience in Germany. The colours contain no heavy metals which is a common ingredient in pigments, many are harmful or toxic, as they can not be broken down in the body. No PAH – “Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons” (in many pigments), slightly water-soluble, numerous PAHs have been proven to be carcinogenic. No NDELA – “Nitrosodiethanolamine” Nitrosamines are a reactive product of nitrite and amines (as in proteins) Proven to have a strong carcinogenic effect. They use LONG-TIME-LINER® pigments. They are mineral based pigments that have low allergy and high colour stability.
What to expect: Semi-permanent makeup is a form of cosmetic tattooing. It involves the controlled incorporation of colour pigments into the dermis layer of the skin, between the epidermis and subcutaneous tissue. Basically, it helps improve appearance by giving definition to the lips. During the first treatment they draw your lips before the procedure to determine the colour and define your lip in the ideal shape to ensure symmetry, harmony and balance to accentuate your natural beauty. They numb your lips by using a medical grade topical anaesthetic is applied prior to the treatment and throughout the process to minimise discomfort. Two weeks later I went for my next session to tweak and add extra colour and outline depth to my lips.
Does it hurt?: The short answer is no. There is a vibrating sensation and medical grade anaesthetic is used. Expect tenderness afterwards, and swelling but aftercare is minimal. The night of the treatment I was able to go to an event, my lips were swollen, they looked pretty and the colour was bright. I used an icepack directly after the session. Three days later my lips were a little dry so I kept applying the Bepanthen Antiseptic, the Vitamin A + Vitamin D Ointment and refrained from touching or peeling the lips.
Every day my lips look more and more beautiful! It is the best thing I have done in Beauty!
Price: A Lip Tint Tattoo with Anthea Palmer is $1275 for 2 x 2.5 hour treatments 2 weeks apart.
Other providers may only include 1 treatment, or have the 2nd treatment as a quick “Touch Up” whereas they do 2 FULL 2.5 hour treatments to ensure 100% coverage and client satisfaction.
They also have AfterPay available in their clinic which means payments can be stretched out over 8 weeks interest free, that’s $318.75 per fortnight which is only $159.37 per week!
Before treatment, my lips had lost their pigment and my lip line had faded.

My latest skincare hero is Andalou Naturals.
The beauty market has changed dramatically with a greater focus on natural beauty. This is a shift that doesn’t surprise me because we really need to go that way. It’s ethical and beyond necessity. We need to be aware of our impact on the planet in all different ways of life and beauty seems like an obvious step to start daily.
For Andalou Naturals, their goal was to create an empowerment brand with a mission to influence an industry to do better, while creating a sustainable source of revenue for social responsibility. This beauty brand, is the ultimate culmination of their many years developing meaningful policy and healthy products partnered with their deep commitment to uplifting people and the planet.
The Australian environment is both a blessing and a curse it is what makes our country great, (especially the northern beaches in Sydney) but not so great, for our skin.
It is confronting and important to know that we have the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, and photo-damage is a daily battle, and sometimes it takes an Australian to know exactly what Australians need when it comes to beauty products.
This is why Natural active Beauty products are the best! Ingredients like Vitamin C pulls double-duty by working on damage that’s already happened and helping prevent further problems before they even start. Your future is looking bright when you use this….
As an antioxidant, vitamin C helps neutralize the free radical damage that occurs when your skin is exposed to environmental stressors like UV light and pollution. Studies have shown that it can really boost collagen to firm and tone the skin, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and disrupt pigment production to give the complexion a healthy sheen and glow!

When it comes to brightening and beauty glowing skin words like “fruit stem cell science” & “potent vitamin c” Andalou is a science based evidence product where health and beauty form an alignment. I love using powerful natural skincare that is chemical free. It is incredibly important to stay away from Hormone disrupters like fragrance, oxybenzone and parabens and eradicate toxic and chemical induced products as they can disrupt your hormones and lead to a negative array of health issues.
I have been using the hard working Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask from the Andalou Naturals Brightening range, which is designed to exfoliate and resurface the skin for a smoother, even complexion. It helps to remove dead skin cells from the surface to reveal brighter, more beautiful skin. Made with Pumpkin Puree, Manuka Honey and Glycolic Acid AHA, as well as Andalou’s innovative Fruit Stem Cell Science, this mask works to leave behind plump, smooth skin with a more even skin tone. It tighten my skin and brightened up what was dull. It smells like my mummas organic home made pumpkin soup!
This Enlighten Serum from the Andalou Naturals Brightening range uses a scientifically proven Fruit Stem Cell Complex combined with Turmeric, Vitamin C, Sea Buckthorn oil and Grape Seed Polyphenols to target hyper-pigmentation and UV damage. This serum helps to lighten, tighten and brighten the complexion by fighting free radicals and promoting the formation of collagen and elastin. Ideal for sun-damaged, dull and dry skin, and skin that’s been over-exposed to the elements. It really sinks in and quenches my dry skin.
A really beautiful product of integrity that works!
