If you’re in the Greenhills, East Maitland, Maitland and Kurri Kurri areas in the beautiful Hunter Valley and happen to be looking for a Beauty Therapist and Salon of good repute, look no further. Ruth Crawley Beauty … “The Salon Near You” is celebrating her eighteenth year of success in the Beauty Industry.

I completed my training at The Australian College of Beauty Therapy in East Maitland back in 2001, and plunged straight into setting up my first Salon. It was a stellar success from the start. Makeup, nails, facials, waxing, massage…. I was on my way and soon to discover my true passion….The Rejuvenation and Restoration of the Skin!!!!!

It was when I opened my New Salon in Heddon Greta in 2007 I started to accomplish my real goals. From Relaxation Facials and Glycolic Peels, I introduced the beloved and still very favourable today, Microdermabrasion and Galvanic current.The phone was ringing and appointments were being placed for the new sought after service I was able to proudly provide.

By 2009 I was in Melbourne studying with The Flemming Institute for my Laser Safety Credentials. I purchased my first of two IPL machines two months later. Trending Photorejuvenation and permanent hair removal were now the new services I was able to provide and add to the Salon Menu. LED Sapphire Photonlight for wound healing and skin Rejuvenation was introduced next followed by the Ultrasound and Oxygen Facial Therapy. I had achieved my goal. I had a professional skin clinic.

Just when you think there is nothing more you need…!!!!

Along comes The new Dermapen 4 ….. Reinventing Micro Needling and an award winning breakthrough in technology. Dermapen 4 is here to rewrite your skins history!!

WOW…. I immediately applied to attain the required qualifications in this newfound field and with persistence, determination and dedication I believe I have taken my Salon to the next level.

Protect Your Skin From The Rays

Protect Your Skin From The Rays

The sun is a powerful source of ultraviolet radiation, which causes DNA damage and genetic mutations that lead to the development of skin cancer. While it’s true that the sun’s UV levels are strongest when temperatures are high, the truth is you are exposed to the sun’s harmful rays all year round even in the winter.

In fact according to the World Health Organisation, fresh snow is a major reflector of UV radiation, which is why skiers wear goggles to protect their eyes from snow blindness. Wearing sunscreen every single day, no matter how warm it is outside, is the easiest and best way to prevent skin from absorbing these dangerous UV rays, especially if you are outdoors. It does not matter what season it is.

Not all sun damage looks the same. Any change in skin colour is a sign of sun damage, even if it’s not red. Although red or pink is a tell-tale sign that you have been burned, studies confirm that you can have a sunburn long before your skin becomes visibly pink.

You need adequate sunscreen protection no matter how warm it is outside, taking care to ensure extra protection during those midday hours. Each sunburn increases your odds of skin cancer. Though getting sunburnt doesn’t guarantee you will develop skin cancer in your lifetime, every single sunburn you get increases the risk that you will.

Note that Makeup alone should not be considered a substitute for sun protection. If you are spending any prolonged time outside, you will need to protect your skin with sunscreen. Hats, sunglasses and clothing designed for sun protection is an added bonus.

You can still get a tan wearing sunscreen, it all depends on the strength of the SPF.
SPF, is a measure of how well a sunscreen will protect the skin from UV rays. It is logical to think that an SPF of 30 is twice as good as an SPF of 15 and so on. According to Spencer, an SPF 15 product blocks about 93% of UV rays; an SPF of 30 product blocks 97% of UV rays; and an SPF of 50 product blocks about 98% of rays.

Intensive Care For Your Beauty Routine

Intensive Care For Your Beauty Routine

Step 3…The Serum

So you’re just starting to get the hang of cleansing, toning and moisturising twice a day and the beauty world throws you a curve ball. There’s a new miracle on the market, another step to the regime…. What is it going to do for you ? AND do you really need it ?? …. You’ll be amazed. It will be your “I can’t live without you BFF”

A serum is an Intensive Care product that you apply to your face after cleansing and before moisturising. Serums are pricey, and if its all about getting great results for you, then this is a step in your daily routine that you are not going to want to scrimp on.

Serums contain tiny molecules and inside these tiny molecules are pure active ingredients. The molecules are perfectly sized and weighted to enter the skin and deliver beautifying power peptides to the deepest layers of the skin. An intensive and unadulterated feeling of hydration is created.The serum is easily absorbed by the skin to achieve the highest degree of complexion correction and recovery.

The Power Peptides are amazing tools. Food for the skin in fact. Serum ingredients are potent cell stimulators, helping to increase collagen and accelerate wound healing and repair. Power Peptides are critical for correcting skin conditions.

Products that contain Vitamin C, Retinol and salicylic acid are ideal for reducing the effects of sun damage,  ageing skin and acne prone skin. If your skin is lacking in moisture and needs plumping and firming look for serums that contain Vitamin E or Hyaluronic acid. If your skin is looking tired and dull, Epidermal Growth Factor is the new generation of anti-aging products that relaunches elastin and collagen production to provide a better skin radiance and complexion.

Save time and money when purchasing professional skin care. Seek advise from a certified Therapist. Book an appointment for a skin consultation in the privacy of a reputable skin Salon. Be advised on professional skin treatments available to prepare your skin to accept the new product range you wish to purchase.

Vitamin C Is Essential For Beautiful Skin

Vitamin C

This essential vitamin is the most searched for beauty product and facial treatment. Vitamin C is adored by skincare experts, for its multifunction ability answers every skincare woe. I treat every skin with vitamin C during the facials, peels and ultrasound facial therapies.

Vitamin C is widely known for its anti-oxidant benefits that quenches free radicals and regenerates vitamin E. It is an important regulator brilliantly boosting collagen and normalises the changes caused by ultra induced photo-damage, also inhibiting the over production of melanin. It is best to include Vitamin C in your daily skincare regime for optimal anti-aging results.

Acne Control

Acne Control

Do you feel like acne is your worst enemy? … like it seems to have no mercy. This frustrating condition puts a mountain of strain on emotions and lowers ones self esteem. It certainly brings about its highs and lows. It builds up your hopes when pimples and pustules start to fade. And then boom theres a party happening on your face and you just want to turn out the lights. Its a guessing game as to what it could be that keeps causing these inflamed eruptions to keep appearing out of nowhere on your beautiful face.

I feel the need to share this little bit of information with you because I have treated so many people of all ages fighting the acne battle. I learned to perform manual lymphatic drainage massage during my training, and remember our educators emphasising how closely related the lymphatic system works with the healthy functioning of our skin. Its always been my first treatment choice. I suggest it to all clients who present with acne symptoms because its a very soothing, gentle approach to a skin in need of nurturing.., and the results are always remarkable.

Your Lymphatic System

Your lymphatic system is an important part of your immune system because it is responsible for eliminating toxins and waste products from your body. Lymph fluid circulates the body fighting infection. The lymph nodes filter the fluid trapping bacteria and viruses whilst specialised white blood cells destroy them. If the lymph fluid is sluggish and becomes stagnant, toxic waste builds up causing blockages in the lymph nodes, interfering with the filtration process. This build up of toxic fluids can cause acne and inflammation.

Unlike the cardiovascular system, the lymphatic system doesn’t have a heartbeat to keep the lymph fluid flowing. Instead it relies on the mechanics of the body. Exercise, deep breathing techniques and fluid consumption to help eliminate the collected waste. If you are suffering with consistent acne breakouts, dark circles under the eyes and /or puffy eyes, you might very well have a compromised lymphatic system.

Lymphatic Facial Massage Hunter Valley

The Lymphatic Facial Massage is super powerful in positively motivating the lymphatic drainage process to help detox your body and clarify your skin. This specialised gentle massage technique drains away stagnant waste. The new activity taking place under the skin results in the deliverance of fresh nutrients and oxygen to the cells.

With regular treatment, the acne congestion and inflammation can be dramatically reduced, resulting in a healthy glowing skin.
