Welcome to Spa!


Welcome to Spa!

We are excited to announce that we are launching a Men's Spa range which will be offered across a few carefully selected Australasian and International Spa's over the coming 12 months.

It has been a lot of hard work in the background, but we are excited to be the first male skin care brand featured on the cover of Spa Australasia which hit the new stands this month.

With it come a number of new Spa only products, including peelable masks, facial treatment protocols, massage creams and detoxifying clay based masks.

Hopefully soon you can experience the Lqd Facial Workout at a day spa near you soon!

Step 11. Why Aloe Vera is so great


Step 11. Why Aloe Vera is so great

It’s no accident that I wanted Aloe Vera extract in every one of our skin care products. Its benefits are numerous – not just for skin, but for the whole body. Aloe Vera has been used as a healing agent for burns, rashes, bites and many other types of skin irritation, and it can be used for more than just skin care. First off, it comes from the Aloe plant. If you peel back the outside layer of the leaf, you will discover that they are filled with clear, sticky gel. This gel filling the leaves is Aloe Vera.
For centuries, humans have been using Aloe Vera gel topically for skin moisturising and healing. This is because Aloe contains many important amino acids, vitamins and minerals that are key to anti-ageing skin care. There are twenty-two amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein, that our body uses to produce the proteins essential to its health and function. Aloe contains twenty of these twenty-two amino acids.
Aloe also packs in plenty of important vitamins, including vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, and E. Many of these are antioxidants that play an important role in protecting the skin from free radicals that can damage DNA and other cellular structures, causing signs of ageing.
That’s why I have made sure every one of our products contains active levels of Aloe Vera, so every time you shower you can look the best you can!

Step 10. As natural as possible

Step 10. As natural as possible
When it comes to choosing what to eat, the less processed your foods are the better. As I’m sure you know, the more processed, the higher the levels of simple sugars, salts, preservatives etc. are found in them. Try to make up most of your calorie intake from as close to natural or “whole” foods as you can. Personally I can live on the same foods everyday (not that this is the healthiest advice) but most people like a variety of foods to eat. The staples I would recommend are the following:
Carbs – rolled oats, boiled basmati rice, boiled sweet potato, steamed broccoli, rice cakes. Avoid bread, pasta & pastry products as much as you can. I've given up bread/toast nearly completely and only have it a couple of times a week - and it's made a huge difference.
Protein – lean steaks, lean mince, chicken breast or thighs, salmon, tuna, eggs, egg whites
Fats – Flaxseed oil, MCT(multi chain triglycerides), linseed oil
Multifood extras – peanut butter, mayonnaise, roasted almonds.
There are of course many more foods you can include, but 80% of what we eat would fall within those mentioned above.
