Spa / Alternative Therapy Review: Detox Box (Infrared Sauna), Skin Deep Medi Spa, Perth.

♥ The Detox Box ♥

When I was offered the chance to try above contraption I was initially hesitant.

So you sit in a tiny wooden box, heat coming at you from all angles, with the intention of sweating? My claustrophobia, extreme dislike of heat and penchant towards hygiene were all quite adamant they wouldn’t be letting me step foot in this so called ‘Detox Box’.

Still, I somehow overcame these hurdles and found myself a few weeks ago dressed in my bathers, wrapped in a towel with a vague sense of anxiety about my impending 45 minute vacation to Sweatsville, population: me.

I was given a big bottle of water and told to drink as much as I needed, the temperature was able to be controlled from inside which was nice, and I found myself fiddling with the temps a bit to reach the ‘sweet spot’ of perfect heat for me. Left with a stack of old magazines (you can read in the sauna, because it’s a dry heat!), I settled in and adjusted to the heat.

At one point I turned it down because it felt too hot, but then I put it back up again because I found myself WANTING it hotter again! I drank the whole bottle of water, and found myself sweating mostly towards the end. It was a really unique and relaxing experience, I left feeling very calm and peaceful.

After the sauna you can have a shower and when I looked in the mirror at my skin, my face was glowing. I really feel like it did help to ‘detox’ me!

The Detox Box, or Infrared Sauna, comes with a long list of benefits, as well as a list of precautions:

♥ The equivalent of 30 mins exercise in one 45 minute session
♥ Sweats out toxins
♥ Promotes a feeling of wellbeing and relaxation

If you are pregnant, have any heart / circulatory issues, or are taking medication it’s advised to seek medical advice before jumping into a sauna.

This is going to be a real treat come winter, when you can cosy up in your own private warm cocoon. The best part is it’s only $35 for 40 minutes or so of sauna bliss!

After this treatment I had another omnilux session too 🙂

Beauty & Wellbeing Routine: Bethany Cecins, Ksubi Store Manager.

Bethany Cecins

First up tell us a little about yourself.

I am from Perth and have spent the last year managing the Subway DC shops (Perth, Claremont and Fremantle) and assisted in their buying for both mens and womens. My fashion experience also extends to New York as I lived and worked there for a year (08-09) interning in various PR Houses whilst managing at American Apparel and W!NK NYC. Gaining a lot of knowledge in the Australian Fashion Industry, the move to Sydney seemed like the next step and when offered the job to manage Ksubi’s new flagship shop in the Pitt St in Sydney I jumped at the chance.

Tell us about your daily beauty routine!

Cleanse and moisturize! I use Cetaphil for both. I have tried more expensive ones but as my skin can be sensitive I find that Cetaphil cleans without stripping my skin. Every morning every night. I try to remember sunscreen every day as I am pale and fluoro red burns tend to look very unattractive. Mecca has a fantastic one that goes under make up really well and comes in a Tinted version also.

Whats the one beauty treatment you can’t live without?
Eyebrow grooming and maintaining! So important! The girls at Serene Day Spa in Scarborough are awesome.

* Who do you trust with your hair in Perth, and why?

Head Studio, Head Studio, Head Studio. The whole team there are just fantastic and its such a fun place. The listen to what you want and offer great ideas that I would never have thought of.

Favourite budget / at home beauty treatment?
Lucas’ Papaw Ointment. Great for lips, dry skin…. Practically everything. $5!!!

Nars Orgasm

Your three absolutely cannot live without favourite products?

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat, Nars Orgasm Blush and Nars Laguna Bronzer.

Do you have any secret tips you use to keep looking / feeling great?

Sleep and water. Common sense but so hard to follow sometimes.

What beauty treatment/ wellbeing activity would you love to try but haven’t yet? (Due to time, money, scared etc!)

I would love to do an intense detox for about a month but my lack of willpower and love of food just keeps getting in the way.

Describe a typical day of eating for you?

Breakfast is really important as I feel half alive until I eat in the morning, but after that I just eat when I am hungry. I try and eat well as it makes me feel better but don’t base my life around food.

Describe your fitness routine.

I love walking as it gives me time to relax and just listen to music, but its hardly fitness. Bikram Yoga is amazing, both physically and mentally. Almost an addiction!

Do you take part in any alternative therapies or take supplements? If so, discuss.

Not really, too confusing. A multivitamin is as far as I go.

Be well,
