Dry Brushing

Dry brushing.JPG

Dry brushing is something that is becoming more and more popular.... in fact recently I saw an article in Vogue talking about its benefits. But did you know Dry Brushing is a traditional Ayurvedic practice and has been around for aeons. The benefits of dry brushing are widely known and in fact, many people include it as part of their daily routine. And you should too! It only takes a few minutes a day and is best performed at the start of the day (prior to showering).

So what is dry brushing and why do it?

Dry brushing is a practice that is done with a dry brush (natural bristles) or linen/silk gloves. It stimulates the skin and promotes the removal of cellular waste.  It is a technique that assists us on many levels. When we consider the skin, (the body’s largest organ), it contains nerves, cells and glands that act as a barrier to protect the body.  If your skin is overrun with dead cells, its ability to eliminate waste is compromised, so removing these cells will improve the way your skin functions. And ladies, regular dry brushing can help reduce cellulite, evening out fat deposits and improving appearance. As dry brushing creates friction the brisk strokes invigorates the skin and stimulates both blood and lymphatic flow (improving immunity). In a broader sense it can assist with sluggishness, fatigue and vitality.  

How does it work?

Using a dry brush or gloves, work with brisk strokes along the skin, always working from our extremities toward the heart. Dry brushing can be done on all parts of the body including the face (unless you suffer from Rosacea).

1.    Stand in a bath or shower naked (to catch any waste) 

2.    Start at your feet and using long strokes, work your way up to the heart

3.    Next begin strokes starting at your hands and work your way up toward your heart.  Allow the strokes to overlap brushing over the same area more than once

4.    On the stomach, breasts and joints use small circular motions, whilst on the arms, legs and back work with longer strokes

5.     Apply light pressure on sensitive skin and avoid areas with skin vulnerabilities such as eczema. 

It is a practice that is recommended in the morning before your shower when the skin is dry and lotion free. If your skin is a little pink after dry brushing don’t panic.... however don’t apply so much pressure that it is painful.

Try it and you will love it. For those of your looking for even more nourishment, add on a self oil massage post dry brushing. Almond oil is a wonderful choice and appropriate for all skin types. In these warmer months coconut and peppermint oil is also lovely.

Happy brushing!

How to spot skin cancer

 Skin Check with Dr Alice Rudd

Skin Check with Dr Alice Rudd

Do you have loads of spots on your skin and have no idea where to begin? Skin is your largest organ, so it is important that get to know it! And although 2,000 Australian’s die every year from skin cancer, early detection can significantly reduce your risk. Only 50% of Australians have examined their skin in the last 12 months. And in an average week (over summer), Aussie’s spend 20 hours a week exposed to the sun! So it’s time to get to know your skin….. EVERY part of you…and the bits you can’t see …get a hand mirror and look EVERYWHERE as skin cancers don’t just occur in sun exposed areas (ie under arms, groin, genitals and under the feet).

It’s simple as ABCDE, so get looking.

Asymmetry – harmless moles will more likely be symmetrical, as in both sides of the mole will look the same.  However melanomas are more likely asymmetric moles, meaning one side (if you cut the mole in half) will be different (larger or smaller).

Border – melanomas will have ragged edges rather not have a smooth border.

Colour – harmless moles will be uniform in colour. Malignant skin lesions will often contain mottled multiple colours (such as brown, black, red, white).

Diameter – melanomas are usually >6mm when diagnosed, but they can be detected early at a smaller size.

Evolution: is a change in the size, colour or appearance of a mole over time. Even if all the ABCD rules are not evident!

If you notice a new mole, a mole different from others on your skin, or one that changes, itches or bleeds, even if it is smaller than 6mm, you should get it checked out ASAP. Most skin cancers are found by people checking their own skin, or are noticed by a loved one. So don’t just check your own skin, check your family too.

Dr Alice Rudd is passionate about educating people on the importance of sun safety. Dr Alice will be speaking at the Skin and Skin Cancer Education Day on the 17th March 2018.

Dull, uneven and dry skin affects everyone….. Men and women alike! However men’s skin is different to women’s, therefore customising a tailored skin care routine is crucial. Men’s skin tends to be thicker and naturally creates more oils… add facial hair, an increased likelihood of sweating and the chance of impurities multiplies. While some men may not see skincare as a priority, it is essential to undertake a customised approach including cleansing, exfoliating, moisturising and of course sunscreen. 

Here are 5 quick and easy treatments (for men) that Skindepth recommend to help combat common concerns.

1.  Cleansing

Treatment: Deep Double Cleanse (Two-step cleansing process 1. Pre-cleanse Oil Cleanser: 2. Deep Clean Cream Cleanser)
Good for: gently removing debris from the skin, reaching deep into pores to unclog impurities

During the day the skin on your face can be covered with bacteria, pollutants, viruses, dirt, and old (dead) skin cells. This Deep Double Cleanse process is ideal for removing these impurities. Without washing your face, your skin would be covered with these pollutants, resulting in poor skin health and appearance.

2.    Exfoliation

Treatment: Gommage Exfoliation (a highly effective exfoliator that removes dead skin cells)
Good for:  smoothing dry flakey skin, degreasing oily skin

It is not necessary to the get out the sandpaper and file down your top skin layer.  In fact, go easy on the scrubbing. If you don’t know your own strength, removing too much of the top layer of skin can in fact damage the barrier function and make it more vulnerable to eczema and sun damage. Instead go with Gommage, it gently exfoliates without stripping away your skin. It will leave  the skin feeling smooth and refined.

 3.   Moisturising

Treatment: Vitamin B Mask
Good for: dry skin and dull skin

 Dehydrated skin means the natural oils have depleted, therefore making it more ‘aged’ in appearance. Moisturising masks packed with Glycerin and Vitamin E are deeply hydrating without being sticky or greasy. They will leave your skin feeling supple with a healthy glow.

 4.  Oil reduction

Treatment: Salicylic Enzyme treatment
Good for: oily skin, open pores, pimple and break out prone skin

Salicylic works at dissolving the excess oils that sit in the pores. When excess oils sit in the pores, it can stretch them over time and create a more uneven surface texture. Salicylic Enzyme treatment also helps by reducing inflammation for break out prone skin. 

5.  Anti-ageing

Treatment: LED Light Therapy
Good for: Rejuvenating skin

This treatment targets your skin at a cellular level, fuelling the skin with the energy it needs to help restore both firmness and tauntness, along with building collagen and elastin. The result is healthier looking skin in just 16 mins. Repeat at 1-2 weekly intervals.

5 minutes with Hayley Roper


Being a yogi, and an obsessive dog walker, it was a big transition for me to delve into the world of personal training. But after only a few months, I have seen benefits that far out way any moans and complaints I muster during my 45 min weekly training session with personal trainer extraordinaire, Hayley Roper (HR) (owner of Love My Body and author of the Blossom Project). So, I sat down, in a meditative cross -legged position, with the utterly gorgeous Hayley, to talk staying fit, squats, self-esteem, skin care and superfoods.

Dr Alice: What is the secret to body longevity/antiaging from an exercise point of view?

HR: strength training! will keep your bones strong, body agile and slow down the aging process. I’ve seen so many women in better shape at 60 than 20 through strength training.

Dr Alice: What’s your ultimate training tip?

HR: Don't over-train it will make you bulky! train effectively (a little strength, a little HIIT and a little recovery like walking and yoga) and focus mostly on eating clean.

Dr Alice: What do you do for sun protection when training out doors?

HR: I use a very good quality sunscreen and always 50plus. I use it everyday.  and I will always wear a cap if training outdoors. Dont waste your time or expect too much from a cheaper/supermarket type sunscreen.

Dr Alice: What’s your best piece of skin advice?

HR: Always ALWAYS go to bed with a VERY clean face. have monthly treatments at Skindepth. use a sunscreen every day, eat your good fats and drink loads of water!

Dr Alice: Favourite skin care product

HR: Im in such a product maze at the moment I am loving the rationale range. the whole range!! 

Dr Alice:  How important is nutrition?

HR: Very! i think as long as you get your good fats, enough water, enough greens and enough sleep, and limit alcohol, sugar, wheat, dairy, red meat, caffeine and processed foods you are definitely on the right track and the bad stuff every now and then wont matter too much. It sounds like a lot to ask i know, but it really isn't that hard its just a matter of being educated. There are healthy and easy alternatives for all of these things!

Dr Alice: What are your fave superfoods and why?

HR: Just good old fashioned leafy greens. People get so overwhelmed with all of these things they 'must' do to be in good health. eating your greens and drinking enough water (the basic stuff) make the biggest difference.

Dr Alice: You talk about the importance of meditation in your book, how can we incorporate this into our daily lives?

HR: It can be 5 minutes a day it can be 20 whatever works for you. It isn’t meant to be stressful! i do it straight out of the shower and I face the window in my lounge room so I can then imagine white light flowing through my body. some people just focus on their breaths. find what works for you- but amongst your busy life and your long to-do list- have this time to yourself, should be at the TOP of your to-do list.

Dr Alice: How important is it to ‘look good’?

HR: I think it is way more important to FEEL GOOD. you can tell someone who feels good and they automatically look good to everyone they meet. look after yourself because you respect and love yourself.

Dr Alice: What are the biggest pressures on young people these days? Does instagram and other social media channels have a role to play?

HR: HUGE. i really worry for young girls. there is so much pressure on them to look a certain way, act a certain way, have the right handbag and this pressure is only ever-increasing with the presence of social media. I could talk this topic for hours but my biggest piece of advice I can give is:

You are only seeing the highlight reels of people’s lives on social media.

Not what you see is always 'real'. from photos to designer wear!

Never make assumptions about people’s lives based on social media (or ever)

Never compare yourself to others. they have their flaws and issues too.

live your life- don't get stuck paying too much attention to other peoples lives.

focus on loving your life, being happy with WHO you are and being a kind-hearted beautiful person. Then, YOU will be the person people admire.

Dr Alice: Tell us about your new book …

HR: I am so excited about The Blossom Program. it is a program for young girls on bullying, social-media, body-image, integrity etc- all those topics that need to be addressed in schools! there are 17 modules aimed to be completed in 12 weeks and it is a guide to being a self-loving, anti-bullying and empowered queen! I want to teach the program in schools and slowly (but surely!) make schools a nicer place and make those years much easier for young people!

Dr Alice: What are your top tips for young women to achieve a healthy balanced life (and skin!)


eat clean whole foods

limit toxic substances

lots of water

look after your skin as mentioned above.

get enough sleep


surround yourself with really amazing people

try to only have to positive thoughts and say positive things

treat yourself the way you would treat the person you love the most

And laugh lots!!!! life is meant to be fun!


Well, no more excuses, if you want health skin and a healthy life, get moving. Not only will you look good, but you will feel fabulous (except for about day 2 when the thighs REALLY hurt!) xxx

Protecting your Kid's Skin this Summer

Screen Shot 2018-01-03 at 3.38.14 pm.png

Why should you keep your children's skin out of the sun?


Exposure to UV in childhood, is a major predisposing factor to skin cancer later in life.


In Australia, 100% of children will have moles on the skin by the age of 2, compared to spain where only 26% of children will have moles by age 10. (American Academy Dermatology Meeting New York July 2017) Just goes to how hot our sun in Australia is!


The mechanism by which a babies skin is more sensitive are not entirely known. There have been studies showing that skin becomes thicker with age, and that the thinner skin of babies may confer less potent protection against damaging UV rays, meaning it can burn more easily. It is also possible that early sun exposure and sun bed kicks of a mutagenic pathway that is exacerbated with every subsequent sun exposure.


Although we don’t know all the mechanism involved, it is well known that repeated and cumulative sun exposure increases risk, so realistically in Australia children should be protected from sun exposure from birth. It is recommend that children under 12 months be protected from exposure to UV levels of 3 or greater.  This should be done by seeking shade, wearing sunscreen, and it is recommended that your baby be protected in loose clothing (pref UV retardant)


It difficult to say how much of adult sun damage occurs as a results of childhood exposure but it has been reported that Exposure to high levels of sunlight in childhood is a strong determinant of melanoma risk.


Ideally, babies skin before the age of 6 months should be kept out of the sun. Children great than 6 months old should apply sunscreens that use the ingredients zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.  Even better,  special sunscreens made for infants or toddlers may cause less irritation to their sensitive little skins.


Keep the littlies safe in the sun this summer xxx


Zucchini – the Rehydrator

humus zucchin.jpg

As you know, I am all about eating in season…and Zucchini my friends, is IN this summer!


One of the best things about these green gems is their high water, and low calorie content.  So just perfect for rehydration over the summers warmth. Zucchini also contains phytochemcials of carotenoids which give photoprotective benefits. It is also a good source of dietary fibre, which every gut needs to be happy.  The most nutrient dense part is the skin  - so don’t shed it, savour it! Your skin will thank you.


I like zucchini done ANYWAY; ‘zoodles’ (zucchini noodles), grated, steamed or in a soup. But my favourite way is Jess Sepels Zucchini Hummous! Especillay as it also contains turmeric my most praised anti-inflammatory ingredient of all time. Couldn’t get a more skin friendly combination.


Heres how to make it:



•  2 organic zucchinis, chopped

•  1/2 cup tahini (hulled)

•  1 lemon ( juice)

•  2-3 tbsp olive oil

•  2-3 tbsp water

•  1/2-1 tsp chilli flakes

•  1 garlic clove, chopped

•  1/2 tbsp cumin

•  1 tsp turmeric

•  1 tsp Himalayan sea salt

•  Pepper


Put the above into your food processor! Add more oil or water for your desired consistency.

How to eat it?

Great as a dip for your veggies,  a yummy pasta sauce or as a spread for your toast!

Everything You Need To Know About Sunscreen

Sunscreen Pic for Blog.jpg

As summer approaches you might be considering switching sunscreens (or starting to wear sunscreen for the first time in a few months!) But which one is best to protect your skin and which product to use? He we answer all your ‘burning’ sunscreen questions!

Why do I need to wear sunscreen?

Ultra Violet Radiation (UVR) causes skin cell damage. UVR that reaches our skin from the sun is both UVA and UVB.

UVA is a longer UV wavelength, penetrating to the dermis, damaging our collagen and elastin, causing skin ageing. We see this as fine lines/wrinkles, sagging and loss of volume and pigmentary and textural changes.

UVB can cause our skin to burn and is responsible for the development of skin cancer. UV rays can produce many effects to our skin cells including DNA damage and if cells are unable to repair this damage then they can mutate leading to the development of skin cancers.

Sunscreens protect us from the damaging effects of these UV rays, so therefore helpful in the prevention of skin cancer, and skin aging.

What is SPF?

SPF is the sun protection factor of a sunscreen. It protects against damaging UVB rays and it should  be at least SPF 30+ (preferably 50+). It does not give you an UVA protection! Your sunscreen should also have a star UVA rating, and this may not necessarily always be visible from the packaging so make sure to check the labelling.

What sunscreen is best for sensitive and rosacea prone skin?

Zinc and Titanium Dioxide are essential for sensitive skin. These are physical blocking sunscreensThe reason for this is that Melasma and Rosacea in most patients have a sun/heat induced contributing factor which can worsen symptoms of these skin conditions. These side effects with Rosacea in the skin can cause vessels to surface resulting to being more noticeably visible. In Melasma patients, sun induced effects on the skin can result in an increase of pigment production and uneven tone.

Physical blockers, such as Zinc and Titanium dioxide. These reflect UV rays off the skin’s surface, preventing any absorption. It is important for people that have Melasma and Rosacea that no absorption of UV occurs to prevent sun/heat induced skin side effects.

What about swimming and physical exercise?

Yes, if you’re swimming or doing physical exercise you need to be wearing a chemical sunscreen. Chemical sunscreens (UV absorbers) use ingredients such as Oxybenzone, Octocrylene, 4-Methylbenzylidene camphor and Butyl methoxy dibenzoylmethane. From the image above, you can see how chemical sunscreens are absorbed into the top layers of the skin, this makes them great when your swimming or sweating when exercising because the chemical sunscreen isn’t easily rubbed/removed. Please remember though to apply these sunscreens 20 minutes before doing exercise or swimming to allow them to be absorbed within the skin to create the intended protective barrier. Physical sunscreens containing Zinc oxide and Titanium dioxide do rub off, so these are not ideal for these activities.

Is it ok to not wear sunscreen on certain days in winter where it’s cloudy or raining?

Ultra violet radiation stills come’s through on cloudy days so wearing sunscreen all year-round rain or shine is necessary. Even though it doesn’t feel like you’re getting any UVR it’s also being emitted from fluorescent bulbs, computer screens and through windows and over time the cumulative effects of UVR can result in poor skin health.

How and when do we apply sunscreen?

Sunscreen should always be applied as the last product you put on your skin after you have cleansed and moisturised. Having makeup with a SPF factor is always a bonus and this gets layered and applied over your core sunscreen.

Sunscreen should also be applied 20 minutes prior to sun exposure to create the intended protective barrier. A liberal amount should be applied and covering all areas of the skin and be reapplied at least every 2 hours in case of any activities that could have reduced the effectiveness.

Do sunscreens lead to a vitamin D deficiency?

Your body makes vitamin D when sunlight hits the skin. There are many factors that can influence vitamin D deficiency and bellow we have listed a few;

1.     Where you live (the further away for the equator the less vitamin D)

2.     Skin colour (Melanin in the skin which makes it dark competes with UVB to kick start vitamin D production, so generally darker skin types require more UVB exposure than fair skin types to generate the same amount of vitamin D.)

3.     Sunscreen (blocks UVB which is the trigger for vitamin D production) however a SPF 15 sunscreen filters out 93 percent of UVB rays, SPF 30 keeps out 97 percent, and SPF 50 filters out 98 percent. This leaves anywhere from 2 to 7 percent of solar UVB reaching your skin, even with high-SPF sunscreens.

Rationale’s sunscreen product Photodynamic day cream supplements the skin’s vitamin D levels whilst also protecting the skin from the suns entire solar constant including InfraRed, visable light and UVR. This product is both a physical and chemical sunscreen making it even more extraordinary!

The ultimate preparation guide for your skin coming up to the social holiday season.


We all know the festive season can wreak havoc on healthy skin. Failing to wash the make up off after a few too many late nights of champagne and canapes. Not eating and drinking all the right skin things. Shall I go on?

So why not get your skin in top shape BEFORE the festivities begin. That way you will be able to ride through whatever the silly season throws at you. So how do we make sure we feel and look our best? Follow these simple tools to get you into the best you, both inside and out. 

1.     Calendar- Prepare now, to reap the benefits later. Schedule a visit with your skin specialist to get you on the way to party-ready skin.

The first thing is to schedule a visit with your skin specialist prior to the holiday season to get your skin in the best condition well in advance. This is when your skin consultant advises on the best topical active skincare and treatment plan. The earlier you get your skin looked after, the better the health, appearance and functioning of your skin will be during the holiday season. Your skin specialist will aim to improve the skin cell turn over and metabolism which directly gives the results of even skin texture, tone and radiance. Practicing good skin maintenance by having a skincare regime at home should be all year round but to boost your glowing skin, get in to see the skin specialist for advanced desired results.

2.     Routine- Make sure your skin routines are working well. Exfoliate, take off the old to reveal the new

We sometimes forget to look after the skin on our body including the neck and décolletage. Purchase an exfoliating glove and exfoliate the body twice a week in the shower. Not only will you remove unwanted dead skin cells but also increase blood flow to the skin, which allows nutrients to get to tricky areas to help rejuvenate the skin. Regular exfoliation over time will increase your skins density, strength, tone, and texture. It will also allow your moisturiser to penetrate deeper into the skin, and have a greater effect. At Skindepth Dermatology we love the product called Morphologie Body cream by Rationale which can be used all over the body to even out the skins complexion and boosts hydration levels

3.     Commit- Eliminate toxins

Make sure you commit to an exercise plan and increase your water consumption to help cleanse the body of toxins. Did you know that when you exercise and breakdown fatty deposits these toxins get eliminated through the body’s waste system and when you increase your water intake this allows the body to remove these more easily. So, make sure leading up to the social holiday season that you drink plenty of water, in between the glasses of celebratory bubbles.  And don't let a few festive late nights mean you skip the daily work out! Exercise is even MORE important to keep the skin's metabolism up and get those christmas party toxins out, and not sticking around!

4.     Devote-Adequate sleep and diet

Make sure you devote time to yourself leading up to the holiday season because the last thing you want is to get sick, so look after yourself and eat the right foods and get plenty of rest. By doing these simple things leading up to the social holiday season will improve your immunity. Closer to the social events try to avoid any foods that may leave you feeling bloated. Peppermint or ginger tea is proven to help aid with digestion. Other foods that contain a high sugar percentage can constrict your blood vessels preventing vital nutrients in your blood getting to areas of the skin, this can have the effects of slowing down your healing response for example with a breakout. We want your skin to be working at it’s best, excess sugar intake should be avoided!

Hopefully by following these simple goals of organising your skin treatment calendar, getting into a routine of exfoliating and following the best skincare regime for you, committing to an increased water consumption and an exercise plan aswell as making sure your putting aside time to devote to preparing good food and having adequate sleep. These things we guarantee will get you to where you want your skin to be but most importantly you will feel great both inside and out. 



Been thinking about anti-wrinkle injections, but concerned about a 'frozen face' or a 'eyebrow droop'? Here we quiz Sally Coffey, Skindepth's registered injectables nurse extraordinaire, and bust the myths...and the wrinkles! 

 Nurse Sally administering anti wrinkle injections

Nurse Sally administering anti wrinkle injections


Myth 1- It is possible to become immune to muscle relaxant injections

Truth- Although rare, it is possible due to factors like antibody development or fast metabolism. However, with the right technique, dose and product you are sure to maintain smooth wrinkle free skin for years


Myth 2- One brand is superior to another

Truth- There are currently three different formulations of botulinium toxin available in Australia. They each have a slightly different protein make up, but work in similar manners. Different formulations may suit different people. If you have experienced issues with one type of anti-wrinkle injection, it doesn’t mean the others will cause the same issues. In this case it is best to speak to Nurse Sally and Dr Alice Rudd to see which product is right for you.


Myth 3- Muscle relaxant will make you look frozen or that you will not have an expression

Truth- Discussing your ideal outcome with your practitioner is very important. The medicine targets specific muscles rather than the entire face, therefore expression and a natural look can be easily maintained in the hands of a trained injector.


Myth 4- I don’t have any wrinkles so I don’t need muscle relaxants

Truth- Anti wrinkle injections can be used as a great preventative to forming what we call Static lines, which are lines that are present when at rest. By reducing the movement of the active muscles as we are ageing, the risk of these lines developing lessens and ageing process slows. It is more difficult to smooth out the appearance once these lines have formed.


Myth 5- When the muscle relaxant wears off my wrinkles will be worse

Truth- Muscle relaxants work to prevent the worsening of wrinkles during the treatment phase. If you decide to no longer have the injections, slowly the muscles will resume normal movement and the development of wrinkles, much the same as they were before.


Myth 5- Anti wrinkle injections work immediately

Truth- In most people, the medication takes between 3-5 days to begin to work on our muscles, by two weeks the medication should have reached its full potential. However, this does not mean that your wrinkles will magically disappear at this time. The way the product works is to temporarily relax the muscle that is targeted, over time, as this muscle is not being used, the lines that had formed due to the muscle activity will slowly soften with the reduced activity. It often takes a few consecutive treatments to smooth these lines out completely.


Myth 6- Anti-wrinkle injections are painful

Truth- Most people only experience minor discomfort during injection, and liken it to the feeling of an ‘ant bite’. The needles are very thin and only tiny amounts of liquid are being injected each time. The number of injection points varies between individuals and is determined by the size and position of the muscles and the desired result. 


Feeling a little less apprehensive? Book in with Super nurse Sally to talk more about how anti wrinkle injections might work for you! Sally has extensive experience in injectables working with plastic surgeons and dermatologists and has a gentle nurturing manner, just what a first timer needs! Sally works with aesthetic patients on Tuesdays and Thursdays 9-6pm and looks forward to meeting you!
