I had a busy morning planned doing some yoga 🧘🏼♀️ but instead I’m going to go outside and play with my dogs outside in the snow like a 7 year old because sometimes that’s what you need.
🧬Stress causes havoc on the skin.
🚴🏼♀️Little things like this can make you de-stressed, connected and happier
🤳🏼Put your phone down and enjoy the views you could even do it for the whole day and do a digital detox!
Here is a little throwback when I visited the beach not too long ago. Enjoy one thing of nature every day 💚

This time last week...
We were able to disconnect from reality, reconnect with our imagination and share amazing experiences with our Dermalogica family- what an experience, what a tribe!

Here’s to a relaxing Sunday. Why not take time to use some of your home care products, use your bath oils or give yourself a mini home facial. Most importantly, take time for yourself. This pic was taken last Sunday on Ocea Island when over 400 @dermalogicauk therapists took time out to reinvigorate themselves & their businesses. #relax#sunday#dermalogicaisland#tryafacemasque#homecare#chill#skincare#metime #
This time last week I was super excited but so nervous too as to what the next few days had in store for me. I booked this on pure excitement not knowing what was in store but now having done it I can say it was one of the best weekends I've had
I met some incredible people who will remain very good friends, i was inspired by so many speakers and I feel my enthusiasm for work has been sparked all over again 👌
I feel very privileged to be working along Dermalogica and feel so touched to be part of an amazing tribe xxx
This is just some of my favourite moments ❤️ #dermalogicaisland#dermalogica#inspired#dermtribe
Apologies for the awful pictures but I'm feeling sorry for my skin 😥 post weekend camping at #dermalogicaisland
As you can see I have underlying congestion, breakout activity, patches of dry/flakey skin, it feels extremely dehydrated and that's before I enough talk about my eyes 🙈
Lack of sleep, cold evenings but sunny days, overdosing on carbs plus sugar and maybe a couple of alcoholic beverages to many I'm now paying the price (although it was all 💯% worth it 😜) I'm back to reality of healthy eating, a strict skin care routine and sleeping better so all in all my skin it's getting back to its normal #healthyskin
It's always important to consider your lifestyle aswell as your #skincare routine as this all plays a massive part of the skin
I wanted to just reassure you my skin isn't perfect and I go through the same struggles as you from time to time.
For now my routine is to encourage hydration, brightening and also clearing so some of the products I'm using are.... * Precleanse
* Skin resurfacing cleanser
* Multi active toner
* Stress positive eye lift
* Intensive eye repair
* Phyto replenish oil
* Skin smoothing cream
Remember you aren't alone and I'm here to help 🙌

So excuse the weird photo but I just felt I had to share with you my post #dermalogicaisland skin!
This morning I woke up with sensitised red patches, breakouts, peeling skin around my lips and nose and puffy dark circles under my eyes! 🙈
This is down to lack of sleep, change of temperature - cold nights to sunny days, change of diet- high carb & sugar for 2 days and one too many sherberts! (Basically a bloody good weekend! 😆 for which I'm paying for with skin health!) My point being that environment and lifestyle have a massive impact on your skin.
I hear a lot of comments like 'my products don't work' or 'I'm allergic to this product', when in actual fact it may just be another factor that's affecting your skin that you may not have even been aware of.
Always keep an open mind, be skin aware and adjust your products accordingly.
Today has been a mainly @dermalogicauk Ultra Calming, Barrier Repair, Calm Water Gel, and Stress Positive Eye Lift kind of day 😊
Weer terug in de behandelkamer. Terug van dermalogica Island.
Vol inspiratie en ideeën en informatie. Wat een heerlijk vak heb ik toch en wat een mooi merk om mee te werken voor een gezonde stralende huid🤩#dermalogicaisland
So on Sunday Arlene Johnston and I packed up to head to Dermalogica Island, leaving my kids and family at home. My son, who's 4, decided that since he couldn't come with me, that he wanted me to take 4 rather large teddies of his to keep me company. We settled on just taking "Fluffy cat" as we didn't want to squash the other Ted's in my case and he made me promise to take photos of him all over the island, showing his adventure to him on my return.
So after years of avoiding Internet cat videos, here I am, living the dream, posting cat pictures on the Internet.
Fluffy throughly enjoyed his time on the island, meeting the donkeys, going for a bike ride, chilling in his tent, attending talks with the most inspiring speakers, enjoying amazing food, propping up the bar and not forgetting his claim to fame being photographed by the events official photographer!! Maybe we should get him his own Fb page?? Salon mascot?
Anyway, enjoy the pics, we had so much fun taking them 🙀 ♥ 🏝
When you couldn’t of wished for a better weekend if you tried 💕 I think we’ve all left a piece of us on that island 🏕 (420of us😱) The most refreshing, interesting, emotional, heartfelt and full on 3 days. Full of presentations, talks, activities and personal challenges. We’ve been given an insight into the next 12 months of Dermalogica and what’s happening and really understood why the company was started in the first place. Dermalogica is MORE than just a skin care brand, it’s that personal touch with someone who makes you feel comfortable and secure to help you with the insecurities and challenges you have with your skin. We’re here to help you from the inside out, and as therapist we do sense a lot from our clients. Wether this be upset, frustration, happiness or love.. This is something here at Beauty Above ie myself and Suzanne will stride to do 💕💕💕 #dermalogicaisland#keepingclientshappy#goodskinforlife#personaltouch#oseaisland#lovemyjob#beautyabove
If you find yourself on an island what skin essentials would you bring?
Here are my go to products for skin health while glamping at the weekend! 💦👝 Special Cleansing Gel - soap free and foaming for a thorough clean
Biolumin-C Serum - huge dose of Vitmin C and instant brightening
Sound Sleep Cocoon - because your in a freezing tent you need to optimise skin recovery and the more you toss and turn the more it releases sandlewood and lavendar to sooth you back to sleep👏
Lip Renewal Complex - moisturising and rejuvenating those chapped lips
Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 - day protection locks in hydration, critical protection against UV rays and collagen producing
And a fluffy blanket of course!
I took samples of just those so if anyone is travelling with Ryanair for a few days and cant pack their bottles, please ask me for samples of your favourite Dermalogica products, I would be happy to put them together for you with my compliments. Besides you looking fresh you will have more room for other essentials!
I'm back after a fantastic few days with some amazing people.
Meeting people on Sunday flying out and feeling like you've always known them by the time you come home is something special.
Thanks to @dermalogicauk for having a great congress with great talks, ideas and thoughts to take away and introduce to my business.
And it's always good to get a sneak peek of what's to come 😉

Back home after a fantastic weekend at #dermalogicaisland
Some amazing speakers, the science behind new products, fabulous fresh weather, lots of sharing stories and learning with 420 clinic owners, a few drinks, lots of laughs and even a bit of dancing and out late on a school night!
Will share my go to skin survival products for glamping in October weather later
So at #dermalogicaisland we were tough so much but one thing I took away with me was to stand out, be creative and don't be scared to be different 🧡
Renewal Lip complex ~ my saviour on the island 👌 perfect for the autumn climate to ensure smooth & hydrated lips not forgetting the rejuvenating properties to minimise fine lines 🧡

/ I’m back fully inspired, connected & grounded. What a magical few days on @oseaislanduk with the @dermalogicauk @dermalogica team and the 450 strong tribe of therapists & salon owners. I really took so much away from the trip, it made me realise how important switching off is. I started the mornings on the island with meditation & Thai Chi with the most beautiful sunrises. The days were filled with inspiring talkers, education and the art of self love but also how important our industry is. In a world where everything is online or done through a phone. We still offer the most powerful thing - touch. Nothing can replace this and nothing will ever be as powerful. .
/ The team at Dermalogica are like family, they have given me so much support for my business and not just numbers, figures & sales, they support me emotionally and educate me to be the best me, to stay unique, to stay innovate. Such a great company who’s ethos is one of the best. No matter how big they get they always give back to the skin therapist & their tribe. .
/ I also connected, hung out and even danced with a wonderful soul @the_phoenix_rose_jarvis , he had us all in a field switching off and grounding with the earth. Jarvis ignited the importance of meditation and how powerful it is to calm the mind. I never get stressed any more and learnt that it’s all in your mindset. A comment yesterday mentioned that excitement & anxiety do the same thing, it’s just how your mindset handles it. The quote was ‘row your own boat don’t row anybody else’s’ which means just live your life and worry about your own mind. What’s the worst that can happen in any situation you are faced with? And if that’s the worst situation, what can you do about it? When you think about it, there’s generally no need to stress.
/ Of course we seen new product launches, new research, and how Dermalogica are still leading the market. But still the most important thing to Dermalogica is education. I will forever be grateful to this inspiring brand 🖤
Thank you to everyone involved @purityskin @relaxationstationbylaura @oseaislanduk @sarahjossel @clairehughes272 @aurelianja @sallypenford and everyone else! #dermalogicaisland
