Love the skin I’m in : Beauty On Latrobe

bol

I have always been a huge believer in the words; ‘prevention is better than cure.’ These words are not lost on me with my skin.

Since moving to the Gold Coast from Melbourne in summer of 2016, my skin has had a mind of its own. Congestion, break outs and the change of humidity have very much confused me, and forced my confidence to concede. For someone who’s looks make me a living, this is far from ideal.

I was searching for months for a suitable location for my skin and to find the right location to be able to give my love the tender loving care that she requires. It was important to me to take my time and find the right fit for me. Ironically, I found Beauty on Latrobe via Instagram, conducted a whole bunch of research and proceeded to contact them without hesitation.

I look for the details: knowledge, reputation, care factor and presentation. All very important when scouting for skin treatments. After all, your face is what defines you! And here, I introduce you to Beauty on Latrobe in Paddington, Queensland.

THE SALON 

A fresh, modern and beautiful salon to be welcomed into. Whats not to love? A warm smile, glass of water and a place to relax.

MY SKIN

Although I have break outs and pimples, blackheads and large pores, apparently my skin is not in too bad of shape! A lack of quality beauty products has had congestion around my cheeks and chin, as well as hormonal imbalances and environment. Being at dusty race tracks and on airplanes certainly has taken its toll. Overall, Clare thinks in three months we should be where we want to be – clear skin and minimal scars. I cannot wait to get started!

 MY TREATMENT

Pre-treatment was done under a blue light LED to help kill acne bacteria and promote healing. We then continued with a peel called Mandelic and the treatment is called a Clear and Balance.

The machine Clare used was to prepare the skin and also to infuse post exfoliation is called Ultrasonophoresis. It’s essentially infusing and deep cleansing with ultra sound waves.

In deep cleansing, the sound waves bounce the cleanser into and straight back out of the opening of each pore, giving a deeper clean.

After my peel, Clare infused the skin with the same machine. We flip the hand piece over and the sound waves now help to massage and move the product one thousand times deeper into the skin than what she could massage with me hands. It sounds as though sonic waves are passing through your ears, but its not at all unpleasant. Infusions with this method deliver a faster result than doing it without.

After exfoliation, like a peel or microdermabrasion, is the perfect time to do this step as all the blocking dead cells have been removed and the skin is soft and receptive to the products.

During the post treatment response period skin is full of the vitamins and ingredients we infused, allowing the results to happen faster as the skin can draw on all those ingredients. Like an all you can eat salad buffet for the skin.

POST TREATMENT SKIN CARE

A good skincare routine is a must. Here are the products Clare has introduced me to Ultraceuticals, and to limit confusion, has added stickers to the bottles so I know the best times to use them. You’ll see this in the second sticker – genius! :

 

I look forward to my fortnightly treatments, as I am so self conscious about my skin. Clare has been an absolute angel with her non-stop information and on-going care. Having simple follow up texts shows that this is a salon that really cares about its people and clients. If you are looking for somewhere that ticks all the beauty boxes, I have saved you plenty of time and research. You can take my word for it.

If you would like to book your appointment at Beauty on Latrobe, you can get in touch via their website, instagram or Facebook.

  • @BioOilAustralia has been there for me from the start - when I was a teenager and I acquired my first lot of stretch marks. And here we are again in full swing with these twinnies to help improve the appearance of those extra marks and make me feel like ‘me’ again. I just apply twice a day, morning and night, and it only takes two minutes, so I get more time with my little mate Carter. Those chubby cheeks get me every time! #BioOilTwiceDaily #Collab #BioOilPartnership
  • My beautiful girl, Kennie Rae 💕

  • It’s fair to say it’s been a mighty big weekend here in the #CoulthardAndCo household... @biozetattack gave me such an incredible (and terrifying!) opportunity to come along on their #BiozetAttackBrigade campaign at @toughmudderaustralia .. oh my goodness!! SO many thoughts about this and surprisingly I didn’t suck (or die!) at it! As you can see, I’m fairly excited about my new laundry additions and I had a blast shooting this campaign in own laundry, which is where I spend most of my life these days.. haha!! Oh the irony. Anyway, I was impressed with the results from my laundry loads (not so much my Tough Mudder injuries - swipe right!) but my crew on the day made it SO much fun! So many more pictures to come this week... there was no escaping that mud! 
PS. Anyone know a great massage place on the coast?? I’m in desperate need over here.. So sore. 😂😜 PPS. Congratulations @fabiancoulthard !! SO proud of you. Winner winner 🍾🏆👌🏼 #FabPack

  • My FIRST Mother’s Day 💝
How special is today? So magical 💫 
The meaning of this day has changed for me so much this year. Being a mother is so special and such a privilege. ‘WHAT DOES MOTHERHOOD MEAN TO YOU?’ It’s a question I asked in my stories yesterday and I had literally hundreds of replies from so many of you. Thank you for sharing with me your beautiful answers. How lucky am I to share this time with my family, as well as with all of you? If you didn’t already answer, what does it mean to you? I’ve written a BLOG post about it too, and included a little story and some beautiful images of my tribe too. So chuffed to have a day like today to celebrate with you this incredible life purpose and journey. Let’s hear it for our mums! 💝 #CoulthardAndCo
  • So from what feels like a lifetime ago, I used to model. Day in, day out, I would work out, go for a run, eat when ever I wanted (and what ever.. ahh metabolism!), have my make up and hair done, outfits given to me and I would pose from dawn until dusk and have beautiful and effortless photos flooding my inbox on the daily. So yes, a lifetime ago, this would have been a quick two-second snap at the end of my day.. not any more folks! This was done at about 10 at night, I had something on that day and left over make up. All the daily chores were done, kids in bed, dog fed and I thought, ‘I should probably get a photo for once.’ So, here you go, instagram. Here’s my ‘end of day’ EFFORTLESS photo for you. Haha, I am funny... I don’t think I did too bad, do you? 😂 *also, if you watch my stories you’d have noticed I had my brows microbladed last week. Thank you @mimsybeauty I’m in LOVE!! Get to see her girls, you won’t be disappointed 😘🖤 #BeckyLamb #CoulthardAndCo
  • Kennie knows how to make me smile! Now that I’m a Mum, I find my time being consumed more and more by this little cheeky grin and dressing her in the cutest outfits I can find.. but I still need ‘me time’ and I am always after those products that will get this bod looking and feeling its best. @BioOilAustralia gives me the control back and helps improve the appearance of my stretch marks in just two minutes a day. It lets me feel like me again with smooth and soft skin.  #BioOilTwiceDaily #Collab #BioOilPartnership
  • THIS IS NOT A DRILL. It’s actually just a little reindeer named Carter... I’ve given him a cuteness rating of 9.7/10 😂 This little guy is my happy baby, always giggling, looking around and keeping me on my toes. He’s a typical boy - easily distracted, needs constant stimulation and knows how to make his Mama’s heart melt..! Like this.. haha! He was born a little 4’10 and he was such a little fighter from the moment he arrived. Always being smaller than his sister, I think he has a point to prove. We love you little guy, - the biggest, sweetest, curious little character I’ve had the pleasure of meeting 💙 @cartercoulthard #coulthardandco
  • Mackenzie Rae Coulthard. Kennie. Kennie Ken Ken. Little Kennie Wennie. Grumpy Ken. (The last one is my favourite!). I wonder if she knows how loved she really is. Do any of us? Probably not. This little princess was sleeping through well before her brother, and she has only ever woken us up once (Her brother would wake us and we would just feed her at the same time). If you’ve ever wondered what the textbook baby looked like, here she is. Always patient, so observant and only cries when there is a genuine problem. I think she has experienced life before now, she’s been here before. If this was your first and only baby, you’d definitely be going back for more 😂 
I also love dressing her in girly outfits.. this bow is so cute too. Courtesy of @blondesinbows 💕
I’ve been thinking of writing letters to my children.. have you done this? What are your tips to doing so? Are there any sets I can buy to make it easier? 
Also thinking of posting photos of these two on their own accounts.. what do you think? #CoulthardAndCo
