It’s warming up, so its time to keep the sunscreen up

Now that the warm weather has well an truly arrived, sunscreen for both the face and the body is very important. Over the Summer months UV can reach maximum levels as early as 9am in the morning and maintain these high levels until 5pm in the afternoon. With the sun at maximum UV level, your skin can burn in as little as 10 minutes without sun protection. And that is just the burning action on the skin, within these 10 minutes your UV damage will also contribute to the long-term damage of wrinkles, pigmentation, loss of firmness and support  and the development of skin cancer.

The most effective way to prevent UV damage and fight premature ageing is by using a broad spectrum, SPF sunscreen. Be it a day at the beach or a few minutes in the garden using a good suncreen that has both UVB and UVA prorection means you will be getting all the protection you need.

We currently have a great range of 30+ suncreens, foundations and lip balms but because we know it is one of the most important step to fight skins ageing so very soon, Ella Bache will be launching their first range of 50+ suncreen making it one of the first brands in Australia to do so. Ella Baché sunscreens deliver this sun protection plus more, buy providing the skin with essential antioxidants to fight free radicals that contribute to premature ageing and emollients to hydrate and soften the skin.

Feel free to drop in an try our great new 50+ suncreens in salon next month.

Many Thanks

Spring is here, so what does it mean for our skin?

There is nothing is worse for the skin than a long, cold winter. The low humidity in conjunction with hot air and heat can leave your skin looking dull, dry, rough, and even wrinkled and older.  Spring is the perfect opportunity to rejuvenate your skin from head to toe by focusing on exfoliation and feeding your skin with essential vitamins and mineral to increase metabolism and oxygenation for healthy skin.

Having a quick skin analysis with the change of every season ensures we know for certain that our skincare is still a 100% match to our skin. From your cleanser to your moisturiser having the right skincare makes all the difference for healthy, glowing skin. As Ella Bache would say “because no two skins are alike”

It is also the perfect month to restore your skin, update your skincare and give your skin a bronzed glow. We can achieve this by focusing on the whole body with treatments like spray tans and pedicures, rather than just the face. A recent study highlighted that 90% of women said that they feel more confident and happy with their appearance when they have a golden brown tan.

So now that the warmer weather is upon us think about visiting us for all your essential spring preparation with things like a refresher facial, a complimentary skin analysis a deluxe spa pedicure and  a golden spray tan and you will be feeling ready to take on the season before you know it.  Our NEW exciting next-to-no-odor professional and homecare tans with less developing time mean you can apply and keep going with your day too, brilliant!

Why is olive extract so precious?

When surveyed, ageing is the most common of skin concerns for women in Australia, making this an area which is constantly being researched. We all hear of the “superfoods” like tomato, pomegranate and their benefits to our health but what are some of the key ingredients to look out for in a skincare range?

One natural food with its unique ability to speed up the skins repair process is Olive Oil extract.  It is a lifesaver for skin so for centuries we have been seeking comfort in its benefit for body and our skin. Natural ingredients like Olive Oil Extract and Myrtle Extract stimulate cellular metabolism and promote healthy protein production which is very important to maintain plump healthy looking skin.

Keeping this in mind, Ella Bache developed the Eternal skincare range and facial treatment to address the ageing skin concerns at the most advanced level. Combining a powerful mix of re-densifying, skin firming and anti wrinkle ingredients, starting with olive oil extract as the hero, OmegAge derived from raspberries oil which is rich in Omega 3 & 6, and Vitamin E, A only to name a few.

Other natural ingredients like Squalane, Wheat Germ Oil and Sweet Almond Oil are also packed with essential fatty acids that boost the skin’s brightness and assist to reinforcing the skin’s natural barrier, incredibly reducing the appearance of deep wrinkles.

The exquisite Eternal facial treatment which sits at the stop of all Ella Bache facials achieves superior results by immediately plumping and smoothing lines leaving a radiant complexion! You will fall in love with the results.

 For the month of July, you too can experience this amazing   facial at 1hr for only $99 (normally 1.5hrs and $149).

Mothers Day, what does it mean to you?

Unless one has been living under a rock, no doubt we have all heard the ads on radio and commercials on TV announcing this Sunday the 13th of May is Mothers Day!

All the commercialism comments and critics aside this really is a day we all use the opportunity to take a moment to make a call, send a card, buy bunch of flowers, buy a gift, make her breakfast in bed what ever it is you choose to do to simply tell our mum thanks! Thanks for everything that normally goes unsaid. As a mum to a vibrant 4 year old myself i will certainly be looking forward to a few extra special cuddles and attention myself this Sunday.

At the salon, we have the great pleasure of seeing daughters, sons, husbands, friends coming in to purchase gift vouchers for their precious loved mum in their life telling us how hard they work for the family and never take enough time out for themselves or never indulge themselves in treatments like massages or facials so they just want to make them feel special. So this mothers day we have come up with a fantastic mothers day competition so everyone can have the opportunity to pamper their loved mum in their life!

All you have to do is follow the instructions below for your chance to win an amazing indulgence package for her.

Good luck and we will see you again soon
