Owner Lisa Travis always dreamed of opening her own Clinic and starting a brand, but she wanted to make a difference, and that difference was, she wanted to empower women. We all know confidence comes from within, how we feel about ourselves as a person, but when does this confidence from within usually arise? When we put on that fabulous new dress, when we walk out of the hair salon with our new hair, when we wear our favourite shade of lipstick. All of these “outside” factors make us feel good and give us a real confidence boost.
Winter has finally ended and in its path has left us with dehydrated, dull lifeless skin.
Most of this can be blamed on extreme temperature changes: cold outside, heaters blasting in the home, car & office, it’s no wonder our skin is depleted of any excess hydration. Also playing a part is the fact that our skin cell turnover (our natural exfoliation process) often slows in winter, leaving us with a build up of dead skin cells on the surface.
Winter is officially here and along with it comes rain, cold, illnesses and a condition called ‘Seasonal Affective Disorder’ (SAD).
Better known as the “Winter Blues” SAD is a medical condition that can seriously affect how people feel. Experts believe that reduced exposure to light, less venturing outside and shorter and colder days result in a reduced production of serotonin, the happy hormone produced in the hypothalamus, the part of the brain which regulates mood, appetite and sleep.
