Effects on the Skin and Best Products to Use?

Autumn is a great time of year to reinforce the skin’s defenses and build back the protection barrier of our skin.
Summer has bought with it exposure to UV rays, lack of sleep, stress, pollution, etc – Skin is exposed to thousands of external aggressions. Free radicals are responsible for giving the skin a dull tone, reducing firmness, luminosity and vitality and make it prone to premature ageing.

One of my favorite ranges for increasing the defense of the skin is EXCEL THERAPY 02 because it activates and reinforces the skin’s defenses thanks to a mix of ingredients including Hyaluronic acid and Milk protein.

My absolute “must have” product for this time of year is EXCEL THERAPY 02 “Hydration prep lotion”, we recommend it to be applied to the skin with the hands, I love this one because you feel a slight tingling sensation due to the quality of the hyaluronic acid and I also love it because it leaves my skin plump and dewy and I don’t have to use as much moisturiser!! Excel O2 has the complete range of products to Cleanse, Tone and Nourish the Skin and its perfect for preparing it for the winter months.

Comments Off on A ‘must’ skin care product this autumn.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is sometimes called the “lunch time peel”. It is a non-invasive process of abrading layers of dead and damaged skin cells. On completion of this accelerated abrading process, your skin will be left smoother, brighter, firmer and with a course of procedures problem free.

Nest Skin, Body & Wellbeing, your beauty salon in Taringa, uses Diamond Tip Microdermabrasion

Our revolutionary Diamond Tip Microdermabrasion treatment resurfaces and exfoliates while stimulating the production of new skin cells as well as collagen. This crystal-free (no nasty particulates scratching your skin or even stay lodged in the skin after the procedure, or, being inhaled) resurfacing technique is dramatically effective when combined with a treatment like: Skin Peels, GlycoCure AHAs, ‘Better Than Botox’ Facial or our exclusive Soli-Tone 2500 PhotoBioStimulation treatment or Soli-Tone 2500 Sonophoresis treatment.

In addition to gently polishing and gently resurfacing, Diamond Tip Microdermabrasion is a thorough way to treat rough, course skin that often appears on upper arms and shoulders called Keratosis pilares. This inexpensive, adjunctive therapy allows you to experience crystal free resurfacing to help alleviate fine lines, sun damage, and uneven skin texture, leaving your skin with a smooth, clean healthy glow. It can also help mild to moderate acne skin conditions by opening up the pores and allowing them to breathe.

What are the Benefits of Diamond Microdermabrasion?

  • works on all skin types
  • no risk
  • non-invasive
  • no down time
  • can be used on back, décolleté, shoulders & arms
  • smoothes rough skin on upper arms and shoulders

Which Skin Problems will Diamond Microdermabrasion treat?

  • Tired and dull looking skin
  • Congested skin with open pores
  • Acne prone skin
  • Deep frown lines and lip lines
  • Pigmentation and skin discolouration
  • New stretch marks (must be pink)
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Pitted, post acne scarred skin
  • Scar blending and improvement
  • Aging skin with lines and wrinkles
  • Aging hands and body skin
  • Skin blemishes from ingrown hairs
  • Unclear skin with blackheads and whiteheads
  • Age spots

How does it work?
A vacuum suction combined with the appropriate diamond tip results in a very gentle exfoliation of the skin, removing dead surface cells and clearing the pores of debris. Over time and treatments, pigment fades away and surface irregularities, such as fine wrinkles and acne scars, begin to soften.

What can I expect?
Treatment of the whole face takes about 45 minutes. This procedure is hygienic, painless and safe. Remember it is not a facial, but a treatment designed to get results. The abrading of your skin has a slight scratchy feeling and depending on the strength of the treatment, you may experience slight redness which subsides 2 – 24 hours after your treatment.

When you come in for a Diamond Microdermabrasion, we will examine your face to make sure that you don’t have any broken skin or any other contraindications. We will cleanse your face thoroughly and prep your face with a degreasing solution, which will allow the Diamond Microdermabrasion to work more effectively in removing the dead cells. The Diamond Microdermabrasion procedure will be performed with intensity that best suit your skin and you will be informed. After the procedure, we will apply a facial mask to relax, hydrate or deep cleanse your skin. You will leave NEST Skin, Body & Wellbeing looking and feeling refreshed, and you will immediately feel the difference!

For smooth skin a little microdermabrasion goes a long way. Sloughing off the uppermost layer of the skin reveals a fresher, younger-looking face. Regular microdermabrasion sessions are perfect for keeping superficial lines and blemishes to a minimum.

Can I go back to work and put on makeup after the procedure?
Absolutely. The Diamond Microdermabrasion will leave you with smooth, clean skin. Your face may be a bit flushed but you can definitely put on makeup, ideally mineral makeup, and go back to work.

What if I am using Retin-A or Retinol?
The Diamond Microdermabrasion is excellent for people using any type of Vitamin A derivative which promotes cell turnover. For patients using Retin-A or Retinol products, we recommend a treatment every 3-4 weeks.

How often should I have a Diamond Microdermabrasion?
For the best maintenance, you should have a Diamond Microdermabrasion every 4-6 weeks.

Can I have a Diamond Microdermabrasion and another procedure at the same time?
Absolutely. The Diamond Microdermabrasion is a great procedure to have before getting a facial – it will help products penetrate better. It is also great procedure to have before getting a photobiostimulation treatment or many of our other facial treatments.

How do I care for my skin after Diamond Microdermabrasion?

Diamond microdermabrasion increases microcirculation, bringing nutrients to the skin and improving the appearance of all imperfections. For the first 5 days after your treatment, we ask that you do not use your regular moisturiser, as this will allow your skin to exfoliate to its optimum potential. It is best to use a cosmeceutical range such as Skinceuticals, these products work in the dermal level to change the condition of your skin.

The basic principle is:

PREVENT  any further damage with pure Vitamin C & Vitamin A (Retinol) products.

CORRECT  the existing damage with a corrector skincare product especially one containing AHAs.

PROTECT  the skin from any further sun damage with a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection (SPF) product.

You will be given information on our scientifically backed products.

Are there any precautions I must take while undergoing these treatments?

It is recommended that you refrain from any other invasive procedures if you are having deeper diamond microdermabrasion treatments unless advised.  Waxing is not recommended 2 days prior to and at least 7 days after your treatmentThe use of sun beds or sun tanning is strongly advised against and swimming in heavily chlorinated water should be avoided depending on the strength of your treatment for 2 – 5 days after your treatment has been performed. If you are having botox, any other injectable or facial tattooing, allow 21 days after the procedure. If you are using Vitamin A (Retinol) you may resume use 10 days after treatment.

Electrolysis – Permanent hair removal

Did you know that Electrolysis is a time-tested method that was invented more than 100 years ago to remove irritating, in-grown eyelash hairs? Nowadays, most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis, including the eyebrows, face, thighs, bikini, underarms, abdomen, breasts and legs.

Electrolysis hair removal is the only method that is approved by the FDA for permanent hair removal. It does require multiple sessions to achieve best possible results, but permanent hair removal isn’t 100% guaranteed for everyone.

A good electrolysis practitioner has knowledge of the factors that cause the excess hair growth and is able to see the action of current in the skin. Electrolysis treatments treat only the offending hair follicle, and can be performed on any colour of skin, and any size and colour of hair.

What methods of electrolysis are there?

An electric current is applied with a very fine needle-shaped electrode, or metal probe into each hair follicle to destroy the root.

There are three methods of electrolysis:

  1. Galvanic – the original electrolysis modality, is applied via direct current, resulting in a chemical change of salt and water to lye surrounding the hair follicle.
  2. Thermolysis – also known as radio or high frequency, uses alternating current to provide heat in the follicle.
  3. Blend – a combination of the direct and alternating current, so that a chemical and heating action occur together or sequentially in the follicle.

Hair grows in different stages: growing, resting and shedding. Because all of the hair isn’t on the same stage at any given time, multiple sessions are needed to get the hair in the growth phase for electrolysis hair removal to be most effective


 Hair Cycles

Excessive hair growth can be attributed to many causes such as heredity, stress, hormonal changes, or even some medications. For women puberty, pregnancy and menopause play important roles. Therefore it is hard to predict the exact length of time before there is no more regrowth following treatments. Reason being Hairs grow in cycles. There can be as many as 1,000 hair follicles or more in a square inch, but less than 100 hairs will be showing at any one time.

It goes like this…..


This is the magic stage. Here the hair is growing and when it is visible above the skin, it can be treated. This period for facial and body hair can be as long as 2 – 3 weeks.


We are out of luck! The growth process has now reversed itself and the hair is ready to shed. The root is already dead and becoming a hard “bulb”. Follicle destruction is not possible. A follicle treated in the catagen stage will still produce another hair. The stage is extremely variable and can be as short as 2 days!


This is the resting stage. The hair is neither developing nor growing. It is usually not visible above the skin, and therefore, cannot be treated. This unpredictable phase can be as short as a few days or as long as a few years.

What factors determine results of electrolysis?

  1. The application method. The current is best applied via a fine wire filament, also known as an electrolysis needle. Other methods of applying electrology currents to the skin will not deliver the type of treatment energy that will result in stopping hair growth in the follicle.
  2. The practitioner’s skill. Selecting a skilled electrologist may be the most important factor. Electrologists are people who have undergone training to professionally administer the electrolysis procedure. If you are considering undergoing electrolysis, it is very important that you do your research before committing to an appointment. The wrong decision can mean extra sessions and cost and unnecessary discomfort.


The following guidelines can assist you in making an educated and informed decision when choosing an electrologist.

  • Know their qualifications.
  • Ask around. One of the best ways to find any good service is to ask friends and family for recommendations. If you know anybody who has undergone electrolysis, ask for his or her input.
  • Get a consultation. Many places will give you a free consultation. During the consultation, be sure that any and all of your questions about the procedure are answered. Some of the questions you can ask include: how the procedure will feel; an estimate on the number of visits you will likely need; the cost of each visit (this will vary from place to place, and it is best to call around); the length of each session; how long they have been in business; and the number of clients they have treated.
  • Make sure they use the right technique. Make sure the practitioner uses needle for electrolysis, which is the only permanent form of hair removal. Some places may advertise electrolysis, but in reality they use electronic tweezers or photoepilators. These are not permanent hair removal procedures.
  • Use common sense. When you go to your consultation, look around. Does the place look clean? Do the workers look clean? Do they use disposable gloves or probes? Ask to meet to person who will be performing the electrolysis for you. Does he or she strike you as professional? If you are not personally comfortable with somebody, do not go to him or her. Personal comfort is essential to knowing you have made the right decision in choosing an electrologist.


How much will it cost?
The cost of each treatment is determined by 10-minute increments. The length of time needed per treatment is determined by the area size being treated, and how many hairs there are per square inch. The amount of treatment time needed can only be determined after the electrologist has seen the area. Consultations are always free at NEST Skin, Body & Wellbeing, your beauty salon in Taringa, so we can discuss a treatment plan that works for you. Regular and consistent appointments are crucial to achieve the optimum results. The overall cost is a small price to pay for the physical and psychological benefits of a lifetime of freedom from embarrassing, undesirable hair.

How long will it take to remove all of my hair?
There are many different circumstances that affect the results of how long it takes to achieve permanent hair removal. The process of electrolysis is the destruction of hair cells. These cells live in the Follicle. All cells in the Follicle need to be destroyed in order to stop the Follicle from producing the unwanted hair. When the follicle is treated by electrolysis a percentage of the cells are destroyed. If the follicle that was treated by Electrolysis produces another hair, the new hair will be noticeably finer in texture because a percentage of the cells have been destroyed. This is how the process of electrolysis works. Once all of the cells have been destroyed in the follicle no hair can be produced in the follicle again. You cannot put an exact number on how many treatments are needed to destroy all of the hair cells in a follicle.

Consistency in your treatments plays a big part in speeding up the process of electrolysis. There are three hair growth stages. When electrolysis is performed in the first growing stage, more hair cells are destroyed. When treatment schedules are not kept, there is a chance the hair will grow into its second or third stage. If this happens, then the next electrolysis treatment will not be as effective.

Electrolysis may take weeks to months to see marked improvement, and over a year to permanently destroy every hair cell. An encouraging fact is that the area being treated is continuously improving during treatments, and visits becoming shorter in duration, as well as spaced further apart. When all unwanted hairs are gone, some people will need periodic treatments. Sometimes new hairs can be produced due to reasons such as stress, medications, hormonal changes, etc. Remember we cannot change the reasons new hairs may be produced, but at this stage it becomes easy to maintain. There are some people who, when finished with electrolysis treatments, do not have a need to come in for maintenance treatments. Individual factors that affect hair growth make it difficult to predict how many treatments will be needed and how long the process will take.

Diet and Aging

Diet and Aging

As we grow old, our bodies change. More nutrition is needed, metabolism goes slower, wrinkles appear, and so on.

Our diet plays a huge factor on how we age.

Foods that are high in simple sugars, carbohydrates and bad fats wreak havoc not just on your health, but also your skin!

Skin professionals have long known of the many benefits of applying topical nutrients such as vitamin C to the skin.

In fact, topical application of vitamin C has shown some impressive results in reversing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reducing inflammation, and improving the health of skin.

This is why a lot of skincare companies boast of making products that have vitamins to give your skin a glowing, youthful look.

But we know that it takes more than skin care to make great skin. Too much highly processed food, and sodas will wreak havoc on your health and your skin.

We encourage all of our clients to skip the bad fat, high carb diet. Choose real foods that add more skin glowing effects and health benefits.

The point is to take care of your skin from the inside out. Get facials and other clinical treatments to slow down time.

But choose to keep that love going when you pick up a fork! The treatments and products that you use from us will work so much better.

I read an interesting article on what is more important than sunscreens and I would like to share it with you.

SPF is your best weapon in the fight against aging, right? Maybe not. New research shows that antioxidants in skin care may have sunscreen beaten.

You wear sunscreen every day (or, OK, most days), and you’re proud of it. After all, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency, up to 90 percent of preventable aging is caused by UV exposure — and that means smoking, diet, and sleep barely matter by comparison. For the last few decades, everyone from dermatologists to beauty editors has been stressing the importance of SPF. “Wear sunscreen and you’ll look younger” has been our motto.

But here’s the thing: We were wrong. SPF is not enough to protect you from sun damage. Sunscreens block UVA and UVB rays, but those rays only account for seven percent of solar energy. New research finds that infrared radiation, which makes up 54 percent of solar energy, also causes aging — and it might even be worse than UV rays. While there is no product that can totally guard you from infrared radiation, studies show that antioxidants in skin care may help.

More and more dermatologists and skin care experts now recommend wearing an antioxidant serum and a sunscreen — and many of them believe the antioxidant is the more important half of the duo. “I rarely wear sunscreen anymore,” said Stuart Leitch, assistant vice president of marketing at SkinCeuticals, while sitting at a table of shocked beauty editors. “I get more protection from my antioxidant serum.”

Leitch explained that he does wear SPF when he knows he’s going to be outside — and most dermatologists still suggest sticking with the combination of an antioxidant serum followed by a sunscreen. The problem, however, is that most patients skip that antioxidant step because there’s so much confusion about antioxidants: What are they? What do antioxidants do? Does it matter which one you choose? We’re answering these questions and more — because adding an antioxidant to your skin care regimen might just be the most important thing you do to fight aging.

The “new” kind of sun damage

This is the scary part. You probably know about UVA and UVB rays — and that broad-spectrum sunscreens will protect you against both. UVA rays are responsible for aging — they break down collagen and elastin, which keep your skin looking young. UVB rays damage the top layers of your skin, causing sunburn. Both UVA and UVB can cause skin cancer.

However, these rays make up only seven percent of solar energy. What makes up the rest? We won’t bore you with a scientific dissertation about wavelengths, but here’s what you need to know: New research shows that infrared radiation A (IRA) penetrates even deeper into the skin than UVA rays. It damages skin cells and causes sun damage and aging by producing free radicals, as explained in the paper, “Sun Protection Should Protect From IRA Damage,” (May 2012) by Nadim Shaath, PhD, chairman of chemistry at SUNY-Purchase. Why are free radicals so bad?

What are free radicals?

Infrared radiation damages your skin by producing free radicals. “A free radical is an unstable oxygen molecule with an uneven number of electrons,” explains Miami dermatologist Leslie Baumann, MD. “These free radicals are looking to steal electrons from your cells in order to complete themselves, and the result is damage to the cells in the form of inflammation, pigmentation, and even DNA damage.” Basically, free radicals are the enemy — the more they accumulate in our skin, the more they damage our healthy cells, and the faster we age. Antioxidants are the best-known way to neutralize those free radicals before they start attacking our healthy cells.

The Soli-Tone 2500 Facial Treatment

Amazing and New Photo Bio-Stimulation Treatment Creates

Skin So Smooth And Young,

Your Friends will accuse you of having a Facelift!

Everything contained in this headline is true, because you can take up to 5-10 years off your appearance in weeks. What the headline doesn’t mention is that there is NO pain, NO surgery, and NO downtime! Take a moment to look at your hands, or even better, look in the mirror. What you are seeing is your skin, your body’s largest organ – a living, breathing thing that helps protect us from the ravages of sun, wind, rain and environmental pollutants. And that’s just the beginning!

Our skin plays a BIG role in deciding how society sees us! That is the reason why hundreds of thousands of women spend literally BILLIONS of dollars every year on their skin. And for decades, there’s really only been THREE ways to make your skin look younger, healthier, more supple and firm – harsh chemical peels, painful laser or never-ending fillers. AND there has also only been one way to completely reverse the age you look – a surgical face-lift. But TODAY, you have another way – Soli-Tone 2500, and you DO NOT need to go under the knife for this.

After years of research, N.A.S.A (the US space program) discovered the amazing effects that LED (Light Emitting Diodes) has on the skin. It rejuvenates, it repairs, it heals and it restores skin.
Now it has been PROVEN to remove & treat:

  • Fine Lines & wrinkles
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Redness
  • Photo-ageing
  • Blemishes
  • Acne
  • Enlarged pores
  • Also, combined with Micro Currents, it tightens and lifts:
  1. Face
  2. Eyes
  3. Neck
  4. Décolletage

LED also stimulates the body’s own production of collagen! Imagine that… having skin that looks, feels and actually IS plumped and taut, without even going near a needle! Imagine… having a face-lift without going under the knife. Using technology produced by NASA and unlike anything else available on the market today, we can now REVERSE the aging of your skin and take years off your face in a matter of weeks.

The Soli-Tone 2500 is a very unique skin rejuvenation device that uses light therapy, micro-currents and ultra-sound waves to turn back the clock on ageing, sun-damaged skin, blemishes, redness and uneven pigmentation. This multi-platform system features two treatments: the Lumilift® and the Lumifacial®. Simultaneous application of these technologies mutually enhances their individual effectiveness, promoting cellular regeneration from within. Results are immediate and visible!

What is the treatment and how does the treatment work?

The Soli-Tone 2500 is registered with the FDA and uses three technologies: pure spectrum Photo-Energy (LED), Impulse micro currents and ultrasound waves. LED (Light Emitting Diode) Therapy was initially developed by NASA and has been used to treat serious burns, crush injuries, diabetic ulcers, and patients with complications of cancer chemotherapy and radiation treatment.

LED work by increasing the energy produced in the skins cells and accelerating tissue growth and regeneration. When it comes to ageing of the skin LED treatment reverses signs of photo-ageing, increases collagen production, regenerates tissues, reduces redness, breaks down pigmentation, heals acne and when combined with Impulse Micro-Currents lifts sagging tissue.

During the Lumilift treatment, a pulsating light is directed at the skin’s surface. Light passes through the layers of the skin and penetrates into the dermis. This powerful light stimulates the fibroblast cell to produce more collagen. The increased collagen smoothens and softens the appearance of wrinkles, reduces the size of pores, and improves the skin texture. At the same time, the electrodes emit Micro-currents to tone and lift sagging muscles.

At the end of the treatment, an antioxidant product is infused into your skin using a special electrode to smooth away facial creases.

How many treatments do I need?

Age, lifestyle and skin condition will influence the number of treatments needed. While clients usually report a noticeable improvement after just one treatment, a series is required to get the full benefits. Generally, depending on your skin and the severity of the conditions being treated, 6-10 treatments achieve optimal and long-lasting results.

How long will the effects of the LumiLift® treatment last?

Improvements continue for at least 3 months after a single session. After completing a series, depending on the rate of the ageing process, changes can last over one year. A good skincare regime combined with a monthly maintenance treatment, is sufficient to enhance and maintain the results you obtained with the LumiLift® treatment.

The Rules?

Here at NEST Skin, Body & Wellbeing, we are very serious about results so in combination with your treatments you are advised to use prescribed skin care that will speed up the results you want, and most importantly maintain your new younger looking skin longer. Your skincare therapist will recommend suitable products specially designed for you.

How does the Soli-Tone 2500 compare to other LED type treatments on the market?

The short answer is that there is NO comparison. Only the Soli-Tone 2500 uses combined light colours with the added ability of being able to LIFT sagging tissue. All LED’s use specific wavelengths of Red, Blue, Green and Yellow light energy to stimulate the changes in your skin. Until now, treatments (think Omnilux & MAX7) targeted individual problems (i.e. they use one spectrum of light or “scan” the light over the skin). Research has shown that the best results are seen when all 4 light wavelengths are used in conjunction and when the skin is exposed for a constant and pulsating set time, depending on the condition being treated.

Imagine if you tried to get a tan in a tanning bed with just a few bulbs “scanning” back and forth across you – you would need 100 times as many sessions to get your tan, if you ever got one! The same applies when it comes to LED’s that merely scan back and forth across the face and so the whole face is not constantly exposed to the LED and so light absorption is reduced. LED’s work by increasing the energy produced in the skin’s cells and accelerating tissue growth and regeneration. When it comes to the aging of the skin, LED treatment actually reverses the signs of photo-ageing, increases collagen production, regenerates tissues, reduces redness, breaks down pigmentation, heals acne and when combined with Impulse Micro-Currents lifts sagging tissue. Soli-Tone 2500 treatments are completely safe! Soli-Tone 2500 is non-invasive therefore no recovery time is required, and the light does not generate heat therefore there is no risk of burns.

The Soli-Tone 2500 is the only technology that uses high strength LED’s (stronger than any other on the market today), all wavelengths in a single treatment and allows for the light to be present for long enough AS WELL as using Micro-Currents to lift tissues. So, it is the only technology that uses both light energy (LED’s) and Micro-Currents to treat the epidermis, dermis and muscular regions. Nothing else compares! Only the best at NEST Skin, Body & Wellbeing, your beauty salon in Taringa.

10 Amazing Benefits of Soli-Tone 2500 Treatments

  • Immediately after a Soli-Tone 2500 treatment, your skin will feel “plumped up”.
  • Your make-up will go on better because your Soli-Tone 2500 treatment will create a smoother “canvas”.
  • If you have uneven pigmentation, this will disappear after a treatment course with Soli-Tone 2500, leaving your skin smooth and blemish free.
  • You will notice an immediate improvement in skin tone and texture.
  • Your skin will feel and look more hydrated and toned.
  • You will feel no after-effects whatsoever.
  • After a course of Soli-Tone 2500 treatments fine lines around your eyes, lips and over your face in general will reduce by a minimum of 50%!
  • After a course of treatments deep lines and wrinkles will reduce by a minimum of 50%!
  • The massive changes you see will last for over a YEAR and forever if you have a Soli-Tone 2500 maintenance treatment every 4-6 weeks.
  • You will simply look younger 🙂

Combination Therapy?

For accelerated ageing or long standing/difficult conditions your therapist may recommend that you combine a course of Soli-Tone 2500 treatments with either surface skin peels or microdermabrasion to ensure your receive rapid and intensive results. If you do require combination therapy your therapist will assist you in planning and scheduling your individual course of treatments.

How soon can I Start!

The most difficult thing is getting an available appointment! Firstly, however, you need to start with a full skin consultation to assess your skin and your needs. This takes about 15-20 minutes. Then prepare yourself for the biggest and best changes you will ever see in your skin at NEST Skin, Body & Wellbeing, your beauty salon in Taringa.

How To Treat Tight, Dry Facial Skin By Beauty Salon Taringa - Call Us On 07 3871 0477

How To Treat Tight, Dry Facial Skin

It feels awful, doesn’t it? Tight, dry facial skin is not only uncomfortable, but it’s actually visible!

Known as dehydrated skin, that tight, dry feeling looks dull. Make-up doesn’t perform nearly as well and can accentuate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

You may think of dehydrated skin as a winter problem, but the sun can wreak just as much havoc.

What can you do? Monthly facials work the lymphatic system to remove toxins, stimulate circulation and allow for deeper product penetration. They are the foundation from which all other products and services work.

For your home care, make sure to add a serum for dehydrated skin.

Because your skin is lacking water, it needs a boost of water-attracting molecules like naturally occurring hyaluronic acid.

We can help you there. For your moisturizer, it’s important to understand that thicker is not necessarily more effective.

Moisturizers laden with petroleum and mineral oil simply clog the skin, promoting more dryness and wrinkles.

If your skin is tight and dry, it’s asking for help! Set up a skin consult and we’ll get you and your skin talking nice to each other in no time.

Surprising Ways To Tame Combination Skin By Beauty Salon Taringa - Call Us On 07 3871 0477

Surprising Ways To Tame Combination Skin

Ask anybody with combination skin, it can be a nightmare! With both oily and dry conditions, you really have to treat both for your skin to be happy. That’s not as hard as it sounds, thankfully.


Our skincare products are designed for all skin types. And that means we can effectively treat combination skin without a lot of hassle. Set up a skin consult and share with us your challenges. We’ll tailor a home care program just for you.


Also consider these tips for taming combination skin. You might find them surprising. Be sure to bring your questions with you to your consult:


  • Exfoliate regularly. This will reduce oil production, clear pores and remove drier, flakey skin. And your make-up will perform better, too! But how much exfoliating do you need? Once we see your skin and its condition, we can guide you there.


  • Use a toner. And no, we aren’t talking Sea Breeze or benzoyl peroxide. These products strip your skin. Go with a toner that has real science behind it like our line, Germaine de Capuccini. Our toners have anti-inflammatory agents, vitamin C and soothing ingredients that nourish and balance combination skin.


  • Embrace oils. Surprised? Your skin is composed of oil and its constantly seeking to balance oil production properly. Using “oil free” products just encourage your skin to rush in and make more, as well as blemishes and breakouts. Use a high end oil such as Medik8 CE Tetra, which has vitamin E and essential fatty acids on the drier areas of your skin. Again, we can counsel you further on this.


  • Use an all natural mineral make-up line, Issada Cosmetics.  This will keep the dry and oily parts of your skin in harmony.


Be patient. It may take three months for changes to occur. However, we have other treatments that can cut that waiting period down dramatically. Be sure to ask us about them!

I always look forward to treatments at NEST. Their service, atmosphere, and professional manner are fantastic. I particularly value the quality of the products used at the salon. Leaving feeling refreshed, calm, and pampered goes without saying at NEST. I highly recommend the NEST experience.
