Having the support and friendship of other mums who are living the same experience is important for the well-being of every mum. Here are 7 reasons to join a real-world mums group:
Perth Mums Group spoke to Amanda about how the industry has changed over the years and what her top beauty secret is.
Being in the beauty game for as long as Amanda has means she has witnessed firsthand how the internet has influenced a generation.
ĎSince internet use has become so widespread, the variety of treatments and products available has grown massively,' she says. This means that instead of travelling overseas to trade fairs, there is now well researched information readily available at the click of a button. ĎIn addition, more consumers are becoming influenced by the celebrity culture from around the world that they read about online.í
Another major change in this industry is that people are more accepting of cosmetic treatments than ever before. Women often used to attend appointments inconspicuously, with some even disguising themselves when they went to the clinic.
When Amanda first came to Australia from the UK, she brought with her expertise in the revolutionary CACI Non-Surgical Facelift, giving women an easy and pain-free alternative to beautiful skin without surgery.
Meerilinga centres across Perth offer children ages 2.5 - 4 years, quality, play-based Early Learning Programs to support their early learning and development before they begin kindy.
20 years on and there are many more choices available. ĎI think itís great that people now have so much more choice Ė it used to be between traditional salon facials or cosmetic surgery. Now there are so many other options to explore in between.í
Now, what I was desperate to know, is what Amandaís number one beauty secret was, and what could I do as a time-poor mum for my skin?
The big secret, she says, an amazing product that reduces the signs of ageing, is sunscreen of course. ĎNothing is more damaging to the skin than sun exposure so always apply sun cream or use a foundation that contains it.í
For us busy mums, she recommends a simple skincare routine that will easily fit into our lifestyles.
The essentials, such as cleansing and applying a cream donít take long at all. She also recommends to always make sure you remove your makeup before bed, something I personally often forget to do.
And what about those of us who have ignored looking after our skin all this time? ĎItís definitely not too late! I would recommend starting simply without too many products or you run the risk of getting overwhelmed and not sticking to the regimen. And again, donít forget the sunscreen!í
