The new workout trend that has taken Australia by storm is now going global – that’s how insanely good it is. And we mean really good.

Total Body Detox
Bid farewell to the days of traditional saunas that use convection and conduction; infrared saunas use infrared heating panels that emit light, helping your body to experience a totally detox.
What’s the secret? You can’t see the light, but radiated heat is being penetrated deep into your tissues, muscles and cells, giving your entire body a weight loss, detoxing, anti-ageing boost!
Expert Advice: “Traditional saunas have been around for hundreds of years, if not longer. However, they just heat the air around you through convectional heat, whereas infrared saunas actually heat you from the inside. Traditional saunas are usually hard to breath in, can feel uncomfortable and you can easily overheat. Infrared heat is a lot gentler and bearable experience.” Says Suzanne Tuttle, Founder of Nimbus & Co.
We trailed the tranquil infrared sauna and wellness studio, Nimbus & Co, located in the heart of Bondi Beach and our high expectations were matched by the luxurious unwinding experience.

Rejuvenate Your Skin
Your back and décolletage have been tucked away in sweaters and winter attire for months, and ‘dry’ is probably an understatement for how your skin looks and feels. Backs of arms and the back area can also be areas for congestion, break out and scarring.
What your skin deserves is the ultimate rejuvenating peel with no down time. Enter: the B Peel.
The peel is a total reviver; reducing wrinkles, sagging, pigmentation and even cellulite, it’s the perfect treatment to prep your skin for full-time exposure.
Through a thorough method of exfoliation using 16 herbal ingredients, dead skin cells are stripped from unreachable and long unexposed skin areas, revealing new, hydrated and healthy skin that’s ready to take on the warmer months.
Expert Advice: “If you want healthy skin, you need 10-20% water on the epidermis. Without this hydration, the natural process of cell regeneration doesn’t happen. The B Peel can kick start this process to remove build up and flakiness. It’s essential that you follow this up by using an oil based moisturiser (not water) on your body as you would your face, because oil based products penetrate the skin and boost skin’s hydration levels, which in turn means your skin will be balanced and function correctly. “Omniderm skincare expert Sue Dann
We saw (and felt) results after just one treatment, however a course of six treatments over a period of six weeks is recommended for long-term results.

Brush Your Skin Beautiful
Practiced by models and body conscious celebrities, body brushing is a trend that has continued to dominate the beauty scene, season after season, as one of the best beauty tools for smooth, silky skin.
In the shower or in the bath, the process of body brushing is simple yet highly effective. It’s a spring cleanse essential and can be done 2-3 times a week
Expert Advice: “Get a great handled body brush and from your toes upward to your heart, create continuous long strokes in a sweeping motion. This boosts circulation to the skin and also removes toxins. It’s also great for slimming the silhouette” says Beauty Expert, Emma-Charlotte Bangay.
To best optimise the results of body brushing, apply hydrators or oils directly after, as the skin is more receptive to soaking up their goodness after a really good body brush.
