There are loads of skincare brands, many with very effective marketing to encourage you to buy them but before you look into serums and treatments, you need to start with the basics, and that means a regular skincare routine that involves cleansing, treating, and moisturizing your skin. It’s imperative that you use a cleanser in the morning and at night.
A morning cleanse sweeps away all these accumulated pore-blockers and allows products to penetrate better and improves the overall cleanliness and health of your skin. A big part of your skins function is the excretion of toxins and temperature control through sweating, both of which happen whilst you are sleeping, therefore it is necessary to wash away the night as well as the day. Another benefit of washing your face in the morning is that it refreshes the skin, and prepares it for make-up application. Your foundation will apply smoother and last throughout the day.
If you suffer from acne, it’s important to use ingredients to start the day (like Medik8 Beta Cleanse or Pore Cleanse Gel) that can safely protect and effectively kill the surface bacteria wreaking havoc on your skin. The Medik8 Beta Moisturiser is designed to hydrate your sensitive, blemish prone skin, but not to block your skin with excess oils therefore creating more congestion
Don’t forget your application of sunscreen, if it’s not an ingredient in your moisturiser! Wearing SPF is important for so many reasons: it protects you from wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of ageing; it’s crucial to protect yourself from skin cancer; and it makes sure your dark spots and scars don’t get worse. A top of the line product is Medik8 Hydr8 Day 360 with SPF 15 or 30.
The Evening Cleanse & Skincare Routine
While most of us know that an evening cleanse is important, it’s often the part of our night that gets forgotten. Despite how tired or lazy you’re feeling, understand that the evening cleanse is paramount to skin health for a number of reasons.
For starters, it’s particularly important to wash your face if you’re wearing makeup or sunscreen to remove those products from your skin. But even if you aren’t, your skin still picks up residue and debris throughout the day. Environmental factors like poor air quality and pollution play a major role in the health of our skin, and it’s absolutely crucial that we wash our face in the evening to remove these environmental aggressors. All this pollution in the air is often the primary cause of collagen and elastin breakdown, and can also contribute to uneven skin tone!
Leaving skin covered in makeup, sweat, and pollution overnight can leave your pores clogged and ripe for breakouts and, over time, can speed up the visible ageing process.
Since your skin does its hardest work at night, it’s a great time to feed it ingredients to help it do its job even better. One of the best ingredients for your skin is retinol – Vitamin A — Medik8 Retinol 3TR, 6TR, 10TR and the Patented and Award Winning r-Retinoate Serum, the best skincare option that fights acne and signs of ageing. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and speeds up the natural exfoliation of dead skin cells.
In short: it’s important to cleanse not just once, but twice a day, and it’s just as important to stick to a skincare routine — this consistency keeps your skin healthy and blemishes at bay! Such a simple and necessary routine and an important step towards younger-looking skin!
Mojo Beauty has this treatment on the menu as it makes sense and uses a natural process without any chemicals. Medik8 cosmeceuticals is such an active, powerful and effective skincare range that combining these two compliments each other so well for the best results!
What is micro-needling, Collagen Induction Therapy, Dermal Needling?
It's a treatment whereby a device with small needles is pushed (or rolled) over your face and neck area to create controlled punctures, which force your skin into repair mode and these devices are gentle enough to be used around the delicate eye area. Collagen Induction Therapy, also known as Dermal Needling, Rolling or Micro-needling, is currently becoming the leading method of skin rejuvenation, through precisely inciting the bodies innate immune and repair processes. In the past 2 years, there has been an explosion in clinical research redefining and optimising treatment protocols.
What are the benefits of micro-needling?
When your skin starts repairing itself it turbocharges your body's natural ability to produce collagen and elastin, which provides that firm plumpness. It also helps improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks and creates a more youthful skin tone.
Dermal needling treatments enable the therapists to be exceptionally precise, altering the needle depth to the treatment area. Collagen Induction Therapies now have the potential to reinitiate dormant and/or alter regenerating/repair functions of the skin, to create healthy, firm, smooth skin texture, interrupting the ageing processes. When combining the right protocols, the right active ingredients and treatment frequency the outcomes can include
The idea of having tiny needles puncturing your skin might sound like torture, but the procedure starts with your face being anesthetised with topical cream and has minimal downtime. The treatment can be tailored to the specific needs of the patient and can result in just a few hours of redness, mild swelling and erythema (redness). However, depending on your tolerance levels, these symptoms can last for one to two days and you can also experience pinpoint bleeding and bruising. Secondly, you will find that your skin will be rather dry for up to a week but it is recommended that you compliment the treatment with active Medik8 skincare products to enhance the result.
How many and how often will you need to have a treatment?
The number of sessions depends on the skin condition, but typically you're looking at 3-5 treatments in 4-6 week intervals with maintenance treatments every 6-9 months. However, every treatment no matter the frequency will have positive benefits on your skin and stimulate the elastin and collagen production in the treated area.
When can you expect to see results from micro-needling?
With in salon treatments the final results might not be noticeable until you hit the three to twelve months mark as boosting collagen and elastin within the dermis takes time. However, as with most treatments it depends on the individual.
When should you avoid micro-needling?
"It can be used on all skin colours and skin types, however it should be avoided if one has an active infection on the skin such as impetigo, active and inflamed acne or rosacea,” Those with hypersensitive skin, acute eczema or sun burnt skin should also avoid the technique.
Nik at Mojo Beauty is available to consult about dermal needling so either book in or contact her about a consultation.
I’ve been using an eyelash curler daily since I was about 17 years old. The curler has remained a vital part of my makeup routine. My lashes are fine, I guess – normal length, normal thickness. But whenever I go “let’s give the curler a break today”, I just don’t enjoy the final look. My lashes end up black and lengthened/volumised. But my eyes don’t look as big, there’s no “flutter” to them. I want flutter!
So when I heard about lash lifts, and how they’d come a loooong way from the old school over-curled look, I was itching to try one out. Promises of wider eyes, a naturally extended lash, and all with pretty much zero maintenance involved? Count me in.
I headed to Mojo Beauty to get their Lash Lift + Tint treatment.
Nik was everything you want in a beauty therapist – she explained step by step what was happening and the function of the solutions, lash grown cycle and pre-warned me when she was going to touch my eyes.
So firstly your eyes are prepped with gentle cleansing pads to get rid of all makeup. This is important, I’m told – any leftover mascara or foundation means the lifting stuff won’t take properly. Once all of that’s done pads are placed under your eyes to hold the bottom lashes down so they don’t get caught in with the top lashes when the solution is applied.
Basically, a lash lift is like a perm for your eyelashes. So a solution is applied that changes the bonds of the lash hairs permanently, hence why they “lift” and stay lifted for months. Over time, around 10 weeks, those lashes fall out and new ones grow back in, and those new ones have the original bonds. So for me, they grow back in straight. To get the solution onto my lashes, Nik placed a brace-like guard along my top lash line, that secured my lashes within it and pulled them upwards. She used two different solutions to activate the curl and viola! She then finished with a tint on my lashes and that gave the illusion that I was wearing mascara.
After the tint, my eyelashes looked so much longer! I’m told that’s the beauty of a lash lift, a lash lift is more like stretching them out and up. The finished look is like you were born with these amazing lashes, as opposed to a weird, permanently styled look.
I did have to change my mascara, and now use the PONI mascara, bought at Mojo Beauty, that thickens and lengthens lashes with growth serum properties. Yay! Instead of my usual heavy-duty, volumising one, I’m now using a defining one and need a maximum of two swipes. If I’m going out at night I’ll use a little more but then it looks like I have falsies in or lash extensions (not a bad thing!). I think the greatest thing about it all though is that there’s pretty much zero maintenance. You have to keep them away from all water for 24 hours. But after that, anything goes – any cleansers, any amount of water, whatever.
The whole thing (lash lift and tint) costs ONLY $60, which when you think about it, isn’t setting you back much at all. If you are constantly battling with your lashes being too straight, and feel like no amount of mascara really gives you the look you’re after, it’s such an affordable amount to factor into your budget. And it works and really cuts major time out of your getting ready routine, and it doesn’t hurt or take hours to get done.

The Facts about a Gel Polish Manicure/ Pedicure
There are two types of gel, hard gel and soft gel.
Hard gel gets its name because, once cured, it is tough enough to be made into a nail extension. Nail extensions are artificial nails created by using a nail product to extend the nail past the edge of the natural nail.
Soft gel refers to the gel products that are too soft to create a nail extension. This includes gel polishes and thicker gels meant for gel-overlay services. Gel polishes are used for the increasingly popular gel polish manicures. These manicures, when done by caring, experienced, and trained professionals, are gentle to the natural nail and the polish stays intact on the nail for at least a couple of weeks with high shine and no cracking, peeling or chipping.
The product used to create nail extensions using gel or gel nails is gel, not to be confused with acrylic nails which are created using liquid monomer and polymer powder. All gel nail services are performed using some form of gel, which usually comes in pots of gel or bottles of gel polish. Gel also comes in a variety of colours. All forms of gel require curing, or hardening, under a UV (ultaviolet) light, which can be either a conventional bulb or LED lamp.
Gel polish usually contain a mixture of acrylic monomers and oligomers which combine to form long, interlocking chains during the polymerization, a process known as cross linking. These long, bonded chains make the gel hard and chemically resistant. Usually, once the nail extension and/or gel manicure has been finished, there is a residual tacky layer, referred to as the "inhibition layer," that is removed by wiping with a preferably lint-free wipe soaked in high concentrate alcohol. Mojo Beauty has a lovely range of gel nail polish. We are studio based and do Gel Nails at Pamper Parties also.
Pros of gel nail
· Gel nails can allow those allergic to acrylic or nail resin to enjoy an extension service
· Many gel nail clients report that gel nails feel more natural and less rigid than acrylic nail extensions
· Soft gel nails (gel polish) are easily removed with acetone when soaked or wrapped for about 8–15 minutes and do little to no damage to the natural nail
· Gel polish manicures can last up to 3 weeks with no chipping, peeling or cracking
· Leaves a glossier finish
· Gel nails do not produce any odor
· The curing time is very fast when using an L.E.D. light. This can be as low as 5–10 seconds with a 36 watt LED lamp. More powerful lamps are appearing all the time with 60 watts being available at the time of writing.
· Gel polish nails mean nails are dry immediately upon completion of the service so no worry about smudging or ruining one's manicure 
· Holds shine and does not fade like regular nail polish
Cons of gel nails
· They are less durable than acrylic. (Gel nail extensions may not work for those who are tough on their nails, such as those who type a lot, work with their hands, etc.)
· You need a UV light (for example, an UV LED) for the curing process.
· They can be too complicated for people to perform on themselves.
· The nails can increase risk for infection if not done in a professional salon.
· They are more expensive than traditional manicures.
· They are more difficult to remove than traditional nail polish.

THINGS ALL BEAUTY THERAPISTS KNOW TO BE TRUE

I Love my job and get huge amounts of pleasure out of making people look and feel amazing. Mojo Beauty is my small beauty and massage therapy business that I have raised from ground zero. I always strive to do the best treatment that I can do, being mindfuol of the clients needs, budget and timeframe. I love the Medik8 skincare range, the amazing results that it achieves and the confidence that it brings to the client.
A good daily skin care routine is essential for maintaining a healthy looking, fresh skin, but every once in a while we need to leave it to the professionals and get a facial treatment at a beauty salon like Mojo Beauty. More precisely, you should get one once a month or every 6 weeks. By making it a habit of scheduling a regular appointment at Mojo Beauty, you are prioritizing yourself. A facial is a multi-step, multi-purpose skin treatment including steam, face masks, exfoliation, cleansing, a face massage and a variety of creams and lotions. There are many types of facial treatments, and choosing the one you need depends on your skin type and skin issues. Some are highly moisturizing, others are firming and restoring, while some focus on problem areas and certain skin conditions. No matter the type, Medik8 skincare and all facial treatments have some amazing benefits for your skin:
Deep Cleansing: A better, deeper cleanse than the one you do at home – a cleansing facial will help your skin get rid of oil buildup, toxins and dirt from your everyday environment, thoroughly removing all the bacteria that could cause skin issues. A good exfoliation like microdermabrasion will remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin and unclog your pores, allowing the absorption of other products. This will also make your skin look and feel softer and smoother, making your makeup blend easier and look better. Extraction, if needed, is great for removing blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and preventing breakouts. This is a must – do step for everyone struggling with acne because it clears out the skin and gives it a purifying effect.
Anti-Ageing Facial treatments can help slow down the ageing process and prevent the appearance of wrinkles. Massaging your face with an anti-ageing cream will immediately increase the blood circulation and oxygen flow, which promotes collagen production and enhances the elasticity of your skin. This leads to a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and preventing their appearance. Remember: It’s never too early to take good care of your skin!
Relaxing: Massages are so good for relaxing, relieving stress and balancing your mind. Just like your body, your face muscles need a massage and most facial treatments include one. The boost in circulation you’ll get will stimulate the lymphatic vessels and detoxify your skin, making it look healthy and youthful. The nice smell of face masks is only another incredible addition to a soothing, relaxing experience. A specialty at Mojo Beauty
Skin Rejuvenation: The exfoliation, extraction, massage, steam and mask application during a facial treatment lead to skin rejuvenation, or in other words – a fresh, renewed skin. This improves the appearance of the skin, giving it a healthy, radiant glow and balanced complexion. You might not see the results instantly, but in the long run, your skin is going to get restored! So keep in mind that being regular and consistent with your facials is a key.
Improved Skin Care Routine: A good aesthetician, beauty therapist, will analyze your skin condition and help you choose the best facial treatment for your skin type. You can get some good advice from Nik at Mojo Beauty, talk about your daily skin care routine and get recommendations on which Medik8 products would work best for your skin. This is important because you can use these tips to prevent further issues and keep your skin in good condition. Nik will diagnose your skin disorders, if there are any, and alert you of changes in moles or suspicious spots if noticed, that could be a sign of a more serious skin problem and require the attention of a medical professional.
Treating A Variety Of Skin Issues: After being diagnosed with a skin condition, getting a regular facial treatment will help treat it and heal your skin. Issues like blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, sunspots and sun damage, acne, inflammation and redness, rosacea, dehydration, wrinkles, acne scarring, loss of firmness and elasticity can be minimized or completely treated with the right facial treatment.
Treating Yourself: Last but not least, treating yourself with a facial appointment at Mojo Beauty will boost your mood and make you feel pampered and beautiful. Having a little time for pampering yourself in a peaceful environment will definitely uplift your spirit and clear your mind. So once in a month, take some time off and treat yourself!

For those of you who love your lashes, you know the difference that lash treatments can make. They help to add tone, depth and make them look longer and fuller. No wonder it’s one of our most popular treatments, especially when they say that eyes are an attractive feature to the opposite sex …
Yet what type of treatment is best? Which one will make your eyes sparkle and stand out from the crowd? Well primarily, you’ve got 2 options: Eyelash Extensions and Lash Lifts. We’re here to help you figure out which one is best for you.
So, What’s the Difference?
Whilst both lash treatments aim to make your lashes longer and lovelier, they work differently. Eyelash Extensions, for example, work by adding extensions to your lashes to make them physically longer and thicker.
A Lash Lift, on the other hand, is where your lashes are naturally curled to make them appear longer and fuller. Because it’s your natural eyelashes which are being used, Lash Lifts can look a lot more natural, whilst Eyelash Extensions have a more dramatic effect. It really depends on what you prefer.
Lash Lifts: The Benefits
It’s already been mentioned that one of biggest benefits of Lash Lifts is that they just look more natural. Lash Lifts are also great for helping to sort out any problems with longer, untamed lashes. If your lashes seem to crisscross or are twisty, a good lash lift can help to make them straighter and more manageable.
Lash Lifts are also free of maintenance (apart from returning for another one every 6-8 weeks), and because you’re using your natural lashes, they are free of irritation.
Lash Lifts: The Drawbacks
The only real obstacle with a Lash Lift is that some people’s eyelashes can’t be lifted due to being too short. You’re really limited by what your natural eyelashes are capable of. If they are too short, then no amount of curling is going to help achieve an effect you want. That said, Medik8 Lash serum may be used to help nourish and stimulate the lashes to improve their growth.
Eyelash Extensions: The Benefits
Eyelash Extensions have gotten a bit of a bad reputation since Lash Lifts have become popular. They can be branded as fake and unnatural. Sure, a poorly done Eyelash Extension treatment does the opposite of enhancing your eyes, but one done well (by Nik at Mojo Beauty for example) will look amazing,
(go to the instagram page https://www.instagram.com/mojobeautynz/
and Facebook https://www.facebook.com/mojo.chch/ for photos of Mojo Beauty Lash Extensions and Lash Lifts).
Eyelash Extensions are great for those looking to give their eyes a dramatic look. They can also make mornings a lot easier by giving you a mascara look without even having to get out of bed! Fantastic for weddings, formals and any special events.
Eyelash Extensions: The Drawbacks
If you are considering Eyelash Extensions, you need to do your homework and find a proper professional lash artist to do the best application for you. If they haven’t been professionally applied they may appear clumpy, stuck together, excessive amounts of glue and may cause your natural lashes to be pulled out.
Which one is right for me?
This really depends on what type of look you’re going for and what type of lashes you already have. If yours are particularly short, the eyelash extension is a great option. It’s also perfect for those looking to achieve that dramatic lash effect.
If, on the other hand, you want something more natural and longer lasting, then the Lash Lift is probably going to suit you much better. Making your lashes look fuller and longer.
As a beauty therapist, one of the first skin conditions I learnt about is skin dehydration. I guess we learnt about dehydrated skin first because it is so common and can lead to and be associated with other skin conditions such as premature ageing, wrinkles, skin irritations and sensitivities, red skin, dull and sluggish skin, excessively oily skin and even clogging, congestion and potentially acne.
So how can you tell that your skin is dehydrated? The first thing people notice when their skin is dehydrated is how tight it feels. The skin feels uncomfortable and you will feel like you need to put a moisturizer on. On the surface, the skin appears dull, has almost a gray look to it. It can look shriveled, like fine tissue paper crinkled up. When you touch a dehydrated skin, it can feel rough and may be flaking off in places.
Beauty therapists use diagnostic tools to help them confirm that the skin is dehydrated. Using the magnifying lamp, they inspect the skin, touch and feel the texture and gently lift the skin with a finger to look for fine lines. Once we have confirmed the skin is dehydrated, it is relatively easy to correct but first, we need to identify what is causing the dehydration. Dehydration is caused by exposure to a harsh environment, harsh products, and not drinking enough water.
If your skin is exposed to a harsh environment, for example, air conditioning, heating or low humidity weather conditions, then protecting your skin with a good moisturizer is important. The key ingredients in a good hydrating moisturizer are hyaluronic acid, ceramides, glycerin and sodium PCA and Medik8 skincare contain all of these and more.
If your products are drying out your skin, these will need to be replaced with the correct products for your skin type. Soap, foamy gel cleansers and cleansers with a high concentration of AHAs or salicylic acid will dehydrate the skin. Products designed for oily skin can be very stripping. If your skin is feeling tight and dry after cleansing, it’s time to look at your cleanser to determine if it is the right one for you. Medik8 Cream Cleanse will protect and hydrate as they cleanse your skin.
If you are not drinking enough water, this will show up on your skin. Your skin is last in line when it comes to water and nutrition so even small changes in lifestyle can cause your skin to reflect the stress on the body. If you find it hard to remember to drink water, here are a couple of tips.
A Skin Analysis at Mojo Beauty provides you with customized and unique information about your skin. Nik will be able to offer you guidelines for making choices regarding the best skin treatment for your skin type and a complete review of lifestyle and personal history, you are no longer guessing at the qualities of your skin.

1. Eyelashes protect your eyes.
Like our eyebrows, the tiny hairs on our lids keep dirt, sweat, water, and other unwanted debris out of the way. Too bad they sometimes fall into your eye themselves Unfortunately, they sometimes fall onto your eye causing a stray hair fall into your eyeball.
2. Eyelashes fall out daily.
Actually, anywhere from one to five lashes will drop out each day. And at three months, an eyelash's growth cycle is much shorter than the hair on your head — which is one reason why they don't grow very long.
3. Lashes grow in three periods.
There's the anagen phase (active growth period), the catagen phase (transitional period), and the telogen phase (resting period). And at any given time, 90% of your lashes are in the active growth stage where they grow about .16 millimeters a day. So, if you cut your lashes they will grow back... it will just take about five months.
4. There's a big difference between your upper and lower lashes.
The hairs on your top lid are much fuller than your lower lashline. In fact, they're almost twice as full with about 200 to 300 lashes. (Your lower lid has about 100.)
5. Lashes vary in length, too.
The middle lashes are generally much longer than the sides.
6. The longest eyelash on record was 2.75 inches long.
Actually, it was 6.99 centimeters to be exact. And believe it or not, a guy holds this record. In comparison, the average lash length is about 10 millimeters.
7. Tiny mites live in your eyelashes.
But don't worry — you need them on your lashes. Called Demodex, they remove dirt and debris, and help clean your lash follicles. (A clogged lash follicle can lead to a painful sty, so be thankful for those tiny bugs!)
8. We've been styling our lashes since 4000 BC.
Early eyelash tools have been found in Ancient Egypt, but the modern mascara as we know it was created in 1913 in France by Rimmel. However, mascara didn't become popular in America until Maybelline debuted their first formula, which was a mixture of coal and Vaseline.
Nik at Mojo Beauty specialises in Lashes, Lash Tints, Lash Lifts and Lash Extensions. Anything lashes!
