• Detox & Unwind


    Why Detox?

    By removing foods that make us feel tired and bloated and replacing them with a healthy balanced diet rich in plant based foods and lean protein, you will start to feel more energised, less stressed and lighter.

    These days our bodies work harder than ever to rid us of toxins and protect against the damage and stresses caused by modern life. With increased pollution, frenetic lifestyles and diets high in processed foods, it has become even more important to be mindful of what we are putting into our bodies.

    Detox Kitchen put plant-based whole foods, variety and flavour at the heart of their cooking and they leave out wheat, dairy and refined sugar to make you feel amazing from the inside out.

  • Ingredient Focus: Hyaluronic Acid


    Sometimes there’s a trend in beauty – a clever new treatment, must-have product or star ingredient – and before you know it, you’re seeing it everywhere. That’s what’s happening with Hyaluronic Acid right now. But what exactly is it and why is it so good for your skin?

    First of all, don’t be scared by the word ‘acid’ – if you see HA (let’s call it that for short) in a product, it’s a very good thing. HA is a sugary molecule that occurs naturally in the skin and plays a vital role in maintaining and regulating moisture (it can carry up to 1000 times its weight in water) – which is what makes skin look smooth, firm and generally ‘glowy’.

  • Review: Julia Rebaudo tries our Detox & Brighten Facial


    Julia Rebaudo - aka stylonylon - is one of our favourite lifestyle bloggers. Her dreamy photography is perfectly balanced by seriously good writing about everything from food to fashion, interiors and - of course - beauty. We sent her to try our Detox & Brighten facial. Here's what she thought...

    "I love it when slow moments during a facial – eg. while waiting for a mask to bestow its best hydrating qualities upon you – are skilfully dealt with by a relaxing scalp or hand massage. Rather than being left just to your own devices to absorb goodness, you’re being properly taken in hand and looked after...

  • How to Pick the Perfect Nail Shade


    The days are finally starting to feel a little brighter (and dare we say it, warmer) and suddenly dark, wintry shades on our fingertips don't feel quite right. So how do you make the transition from winter to early spring and how do you pick the perfect shade for an occasion? We asked our resident expert, Cowshed Educator and Training Manager Jess Sproson for advice.

    "For moving from winter into spring I like In The Buff or Best Kept Secret for that natural, more clean look – before the bright pinks start to appear on the summer scene. They act as a visual palette-cleanser, between the intense, dramatic shades of the party season and the brights of high summer."

  • How to Make Your Mani Last Longer


    Cowshed Educator and Training Manager Jess Sproson says when you want to maintain your mani, start with the basics - like hand cream. "Cow Herb is more restorative as it contains lactic acid (which is like a mini exfoliator and helps to penetrate your skin) plus cocoa butter and shea butter. The fragrance of lavender and fennel gives you a lovely indoor/outdoor smell. Keep the travel size handy so you can top up throughout the day."

  • Q&A with The Light Salon's Laura Ferguson


    Has LED technology been around for a long time?

    'LED has been used for years in medical, therapeutic, beauty and aesthetic clinics. It is highly respected by doctors and dermatologists and is used in hospitals to treat the most vulnerable of skins due to its ability to regenerate, rejuvenate and heal the skin.

    During the late 80’s the first prototype of the Paterson PDT was developed as a safe and painless alternative to lasers for the treatment of non-melanoma skin cancer. Following extensive research in the 1990’s, NASA discovered that LED light therapy was successful in treating difficult to heal wounds, severe burns, muscle and damaged nerves. As with many technologies used in the medical sector, LED light therapy moved swiftly into the beauty industry, helped greatly by the outstanding results in cellular repair.'
