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.

BAMBOO PLANT BASED FEMALE HYGIENE PADS
This really got me questioning the production and ethical integrity behind the mainstream female hygiene products. They are mass-produced, heavily marketed, and cheaply made out of bleached rayon and plastics. Cotton is the most heavily pesticide sprayed crop. Why would we want to use that?
I love women to be empowered and I believe in a holistic clinical approach to female health and gynecology.
HOW IMPORTANT IS IT USE ORGANIC TAMPONS, CONDOMS, AND LUBRICANTS?
It’s so important to use organic products in and around our bodies, especially delicate vaginal mucosa. Studies show that women who eat organic foods have a 90 percent reduction in pesticide residues in their blood. While we certainly don’t eat tampons, the chemicals within them absorb into our bodies and bloodstreams via vaginal mucosa.
Bamboo pads are obviously a healthier and safer option!
Biodegradable Eco Friendly Sustainably grown Bamboo based womens hygiene pads.
What is something that every woman has to endure in her lifetime? Menstruation. On average, a woman will have her period once a month, for about five days, for around 40 years of her life. During this time, she’ll need to use various products to stay clean and fresh.
This is why a Natural product like Bamboo Babe is extremely crucial to use longterm for womens health and the earth.
Bamboo is actually a grass that it naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial.
When it comes to feminine hygiene and womens health and wellbeing this green product is an intelligent innovation. As a fact, Bamboo is more absorbent than cotton! This makes this product highly functional as Bamboo grows without any chemical fertilisers or pesticides.
If the average women uses about 17,000 pads or tampons during her entire menstruation lifetime, and you multiply that by 3.5 billion women in the world! WOW!
Why pads are a healthier and safer option than Tampons
Tampon use has the potential to change vaginal microflora
If abnormal bacteria are harboured in the vagina, menstrual blood which is accumulated inside the vagina above and within a tampon can act as a culture medium allowing micro-organisms to multiply, thereby promoting infection.
Another common concern is Toxic Shock Syndrome
Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) is a rare and potentially life-threatening illness, believed to be caused by infection with particular bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes. Menstruating women are most susceptible and it is thought that the infection is associated with tampon use.
The underlying mechanisms are not fully understood, but one theory is that the bacteria naturally present in the vagina can overpopulate in the presence of a blood-soaked tampon. However, one-third of menstruating women who develop toxic shock syndrome are found to have Staphylococcal bacteria already present in their vaginas.
The toxin produced by the bacteria that causes toxic shock syndrome, rather than the presence of the bacteria themselves. Staphylococcus aureus is a common type of bacterium that lives on the skin and inside the nose.
In most cases, it is harmless. However, it can cause a wide range of infections if it gains access to deeper tissue and the blood stream. For toxic shock syndrome to occur, particular strains of the bacteria must first overpopulate and produce large amounts of the toxic shock syndrome toxin as a by-product. Then, the toxin has to enter the bloodstream.

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.

KARMIC COLD PRESSED CLEANSE REVIEW
Fruit and Veggies are the most life enhancing food we can put in our bodies…. They are high in water with vital amino acids, minerals and vitamins that help to dissolve toxic substances and cleanse our tissues and system.
The reason I decided to complete this cleanse was because lately, I have been feeling really sluggish and not as clear and sparkly as usual. Not only was my energy level at an all time low, I have been feeling stressed and run down which has caused me to hold on to water retention, feel acidic and bloated and honestly, I’m over drinking alcohol and my major addiction to caffeine. So, its time for a reset. I am intuitive with my body and I was ready for a detox! The juice cleanse I did focused on GUT Health and each juice is Organic and has less than 5% fructose.
I truly LOVE to Juice fast 2 times or more a year as a way to flood my system with nutrient dense love!!!
I believe Nutrition is healing and a way to reverse damage and eliminate toxins to supercharge the healing process of body love for an alkaline body that feels light, is pure and your beauty glows from within!!! My fav juice base is celery which is loaded with potassium, folic acid, magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus and essential amino acids. On top of all that, celery is one of the most alkaline things you can put in your body.
Juice cleansing floods the bod with super active absorbable vitamins and nutrition so the whole body system can rest and rejuvenate naturally!!! Yum! Cleanse, repair and replenish.
Firstly what is important to look out for when choosing the best quality juice cleanse is the quality of machinery used.
Cold pressed juice VS non Cold pressed juice.
1. Cold pressed Juice
Cold Pressed is better for you as they have way more nutritional benefits. They gently press the fruit and veg as opposed to being heated up and massacred. When there is no heat there is less oxidisation and the minerals, vitamins and enzymes stay alive. This supports the body with repairing muscles, boosting the immune system and balancing acidic levels.
Karmic Cold Pressed juice uses the best quality machinery.
2. Centrifugal Juice Extractors
The problem with centrifugal juicers is that the fast-spinning metal blade generates heat, which destroys some of the enzymes in the fruits and vegetables you’re juicing. The heat also oxidizes those nutrients, rendering less nutritious juice than a cold-press juicer.
