Byron Naturally

Do you want to know the secret to gorgeous, glowing skin? We sought advice from a Naturopath, Dermatologist and Beautician to find out their expert tips for maintaining supple, hydrated skin and smooth lips during your Byron stay. From potions and lotions to facials and massages here’s what we’d recommend.

When it comes to face creams those that contain an SPF to guard skin against UV rays and antioxidant vitamins protect against premature ageing are the best. Avocado, olive, jojoba and rosehip oils are nourishing types you should look for in night creams. If your skin itches or cracks from dryness, consider using a product with mineral oil or baby oil; they can form a protective layer on the skin and look for body creams with glycerine, sorbitol and sodium hyaluronate for retaining moisture. For the lips – nourishing ingredients like shea butter high in oil content and vitamin E strengthens the skins barrier function.

Did you know that our skin is the largest organ of the human body and that the human body is approximately 65% water? Well, you do now…

If home pampering is your thing, drop in to Natures Child, Madame Butterfly, Private Life, Reflections or Temple of Light – they have a beautiful assortment of bodycare, massage and beauty products, candles and special gifts for you to create your own “day spa” in the privacy of your own home.

With the midyear slump creeping up on all of us all it’s hardly surprising that many of us are starting to feel a bit lethargic. If your skin is feeling the effects of the dry winter air or you find your back aches maybe it is time to splurge in a bit of “you” time. Byron Bay is the perfect location to indulge in a treatment or two to help get you back on track.

At this time of year you’re sure to see a dolphin or maybe even a whale or two frolicking in the protected bay.

To shake away aches and pains try limbering up with a series of Yoga classes, through correct breathing, stretching and postures you may find that your mind, body and soul will thank you by summer!
