Self-Care Tip

Trade Coffee for Tea

Most of us enjoy a cup of coffee, not just for the pick me up, but for the opportunity to stop for a few moments, take a breathe and enjoy a cuppa – but did you know changing from coffee to a cup of tea can help you sleep better, increase magnesium absorption which helps reduce muscle cramps and restlessness, hydrates better than coffee and can lower your cholesterol? So this afternoon, try swap your afternoon coffee to a cup of tea, or even better herbal tea.

Packing Tip

Travel-Size Toiletries

Unless your road trip with the girls to your Venus Getaways involves hiring a bus, boot space and luggage space are often at a premium. Our packing tip? Invest in either empty toiletry bottles and decant some of your favourite skin and body products into them to pack, or invest in some ready made, travel-size toiletries such as the wide range of minis at Mecca.

I also love the “Gift with Purchase” packs from brands like Estee Lauder with their gorgeous little pots of luxurious moisturiser therein.

Our suggestions: Eve Lom Cleanser 20ml $34.95, Origins GinZing Moisturiser 30ml $28 and Mecca To Save Face SPF30 Facial Sunscreen 30g $16 or Estee Lauder’s new Beauty Essentials $105.
