In celebration of our 15th Birthday, we decided to join forces for International Women's Day. With 15 years of experience in the industry, we decided to celebrate, make a difference and give back. So we joined forces with three charities that are close to our heart.
Halcyon Domestic Violence and Safe House Aunties and Uncles Sarz Sanctuary
The morning was filled with women guest speakers, great deals, packages and prizes that were won. Oh, and don't forget the lunch and bubbles. Our celebrations took place on Tuesday, March 5th, 9 AM, at Harbour Day Spa. Tickets were available for purchase at the cost of $75. With all guests able to redeem a $25 voucher to Harbour Day Spa as well as contribute to a $50 donation to your choice of charity.

SPRAYTONIQS AT HARBOUR DAY SPA, WE DON’T DO MEDIOCRE That’s why we’re the only spa in Brisbane that uses the Spraytoniqs tanning formula, the highest quality spray tan on the market. This modern, original product eliminates all of the undesirable effects that come with fake tanning including streaky application, wastage, cleanliness and hygiene. How? The patent-pending, extremely fine spray gun, along with the all-inclusive spray booth minimises the potential for mess by containing the formula during the tanning process.
Spraytoniqs was created by the owner of Bronzalicious, Australia’s leading tanners, designed to resist our hot weather, whilst giving an even, natural tan that fades away evenly. The innovative nature of the product comes down to the extensive number of shades to perfectly match your skin. Before application, the tan is matched to your individual colouring, skin condition and skin type to create a beautiful natural looking tan. There are 60 tan combinations prescribed specifically to your skin type and tone to guarantee you will leave the spa glowing a sensual, summer bronze colour. We cater for everyone, so if you’d love to continue your tan at home, the Spraytoniqs range also features a tan-off mitt and self-tan mitt so you can prepare and tan in the comfort of your own home.
NEW PRODUCTS COSMEDIX
The COSMEDIX range features a high-level of active ingredients to ensure it is competent in completing its anti-aging goals. The ingredients are clean, clinical, with natural botanicals and lavish textures to deliver transformative results for every skin type, safely.

Olieve & Olie
We’re excited for this! Olieve & Olie, an Australian designed, innovative, olive oil based skin care range just hit the shelves at Harbour Day Spa this December. This range is harvested naturally, ethically and sustainably resulting in no chemicals in their products. Rich in antioxidants and Vitamin E, the benefits of these products are the anti-aging capabilities and ability to restore your skins smoothness.

SKIN CONSULTATION AND CLINIC FACIAL Our experienced team of Dermal Therapists offer Skin Consultations to provide the opportunity to try before you buy. We cater for a range of skin conditions and requirements whilst ensuring you feel comfortable and at ease. The sampling of these products will check for any allergies or irritations, before you purchase to
remove any risk and difficulties involved with sensitive skin.
By undergoing a consult with the latest diagnostic
equipment and our highly qualified skin specialists who encourage you to talk about your concerns, you leave understanding any areas for improvement.
We believe everyone should have access to treatments and products that can be trusted to deliver results they never thought possible, without breaking the bank. After a consultation, we will record the products used and forward them through to you, so after a twenty-four hour window, you can select the ones the worked best for your skin type. This way, you can go home with the products you will actually use rather than allowing them to collect dust or to be passed on as a gift.
6 RESOLUTIONS YOUR HAIR AND SKIN WILL THANK YOU FOR THIS SUMMER In a fast-paced world where priority is often placed on the latest gizmos and gadgets, it’s easy to get swept up in hectic schedules and neglect our most precious possession – our own body and mind. Yes, that means looking after your hair and skin, as if it were alive. Neglect happens, unintentionally, and is the worst thing we can do to ourselves in this busy time.
It really is the small things that make the biggest difference, and long-term your skin and hair will thank you for the due care you provide. We’ve compiled a list of some simple tasks that will encourage health, beauty and benefit to your precious bodies.
1. Wear Sunscreen
Sun damage is a condition that is often treated too late. We see clients undergoing laser treatments to lessen the years of damage they have placed on their skin by not protecting it from the sun’s UV rays. In summer, sun protection is essential, however it really is an essential year-round preventative health measure. Especially in Australia, where it’s so hot, and even on the cloudiest of days, the UV rays are harmful. By applying sunscreen daily, you significantly mitigate the risk of getting Skin Cancer, whilst also preventing premature aging of the skin. Some easily identifiable signs of aging of the skin are discolouration of pigment, a leathery appearance, as well as lines, sagging and wrinkles – all caused by the breakdown of healthy collagen in the skin. By wearing sunscreen, you ensure to avoid discolouration and dark spots of the skin, contributing to an even skin tone all year round.
A minimum SPF of 15 is required for protection, whilst some doctors refuse to recommend any lower SPF protection of 30. At Harbour Day Spa, we provide access to the Ultraceuticals SPF 50+ Face and Body Cream ($49), a guaranteed way to protect your skin, for longer periods at a time. However, when you’re in the sun, it is always recommended you reapply after two hours of sun exposure to maintain constant protection and not forego the risk of damaging your body’s largest organ.
2. Drink more water
Water is often the most overlooked nutrient for your health. The benefits of drinking water are limitless, and the best part… you won’t gain a pound… you may even lose weight. Nearly all of our systems do not function as well without proper water intake. Our bodies consist of over 50% water, so throughout the day, replenishing the water your body is so reliant on is essential to avoid dehydration. Dehydration can cause many poor health effects that are just not needed to add to the stress of our busy lives. Fighting off pesky signs of dehydration such as confusion and anger, an increase in water intake works to clear the mind, contributing to increased happiness and clarity. Drinking more water and staying hydrated also contributes to increased performance of muscle performance, eliminating signs of weakness, fatigue, joint pain and
dizziness some of us may fight daily.
Some more benefits? Water consumption aids in preventing cancer. This is primarily due to water’s ability to flush toxins from the body, reducing risk of tumorous cells in the colon, bladder and breast. By drinking water, your body becomes capable of flushing out waste by increasing the flow of your body’s transportation system, thus reducing a myriad of problems in your gut and digestive system. Regular and plentiful water consumption also reduces any troublesome headaches you may suffer from, as well as increasing the vibrancy of your skin. Staying hydrated contributes to that commonly sought-after glow and luminosity that you’ll always be complemented on.
If you’re already consuming bounteous water, why not hydrate your skin from the outside in with Cosmedix Emulsion Intense Hydrator ($115), or for a more affordable option that holds similar hydration power, the Ultraceuticals B2 Hydrating Serum ($95) may be for you. Both products are available online and in store.
3. Apply and Use an Eye Cream
By incorporating an eye-cream into your skincare routine, you are able to reduce signs of aging, naturally. High quality eye creams help to reduce puffiness around the eye, dark circles and fine lines or crows feet. Many benefits stem from the continued application of eye-cream as it works as a moisturiser, hydrator and brightener all in one. The eye area doesn’t produce much oil, so it may dry quicker than other areas of the face. If you’re an avid makeup wearer, you may notice that your concealer moulds to the skin underneath the eye, causing it to flake if you aren’t properly hydrated or moisturized. As well as this, the dewy nature of a quality eye-cream, helps to brighten and revitalise the skin around the eyes, inflicting the appearance of agelessness, as well as preventing further signs of aging. This works by firming and tightening the skin around the eye, to fight those unsightly workings of gravity. The O Cosmedics Eye Fusion ($129) is an award winning formula that offers access to ingredients such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic filling technology using a new source of bio-energy to reactive lazy cells.
An alternative to this product, often referred to as Mermaid Tears due to its chromatic glow and thick consistency, is the Cosmedix Elite Eye Doctor ($220). This product features Retinol as a core product to encourage cell turnover and production of new cells that really inspires a difference.
4. Use a Hair Treatment to Prevent Salt Water Damage
You may find that lying on the beach for hours may be relaxing, however the overexposure to salt water can be extremely damaging to your hair. If too much water is drawn from your hair, and replaced with salt, it can have dehydrating effects leading to dry and brittle hair. Especially if you’ve put colour through your locks, the salt water can create a firm texture making it difficult to comb or brush, leading to breakages and lost length. Options for DIY treatments to cure delicate strands include honey, coconut oil as well as avocado to increase moisture formation that targets split ends. If that sounds a little bit messy for you, Harbour Day Spa stocks hair products that will revitalise and reverse salt damage with consistent use.
Eleven’s 3-Minute Repair Treatment ($26.95) contains a protein and moisture blend to strengthen and nourish dry, damaged hair. Ingredients of Shea butter and hydrolysed wheat proteins treat and repair damaged ends. And it only takes three minutes, making it simple and effective to use.
Another option available at Harbour Day Spa to hydrate salty hair is Davine’s MOMO Hair Potion ($39.95). This is a leave-on formula with a lightweight silky formula. The benefit of using a leave-in conditioning product is the ability to put it in your hair before swimming in the ocean as it forms around your locks, making it more difficult for the salt to permeate and remove existing moisture from your hair.
Removing dry/dead skin cells from the surface of your skin is essential in taking care of your face and body. By doing so, new skin cell production is encouraged, increasing blood circulation as well as the formation of healthy and glowing skin. Moderation is important so that you’re not stripping your body of its natural oils. Exfoliating the skin affords a cure to blemished skin, red and dark marks, clogged pores, pigmentation, dry skin, ingrown hairs, and overall wellbeing. Often overlooked, exfoliating encourages a healthy lymphatic system and increased blood circulation to break down fatty tissues, drains unwanted toxins from the skin and encourages the development of new skin cells. It is essential to follow this with a good moisturiser, as your skin is at its most porous and open to remedy healing. O Cosmedics Exfoliating Cleanser, with V8 Peptide Complex ($64) is a cleanser and scrub in one. This product is empowered with four exfoliating beads to offer the skin an invigorating and deep cleansing experience. The ingredients in this professional strength product include cranberry seeds, jojaba beads, and diatomaceous earth and hydrated silicone crystals… a rare find and powerful product.
Another quality, mask style exfoliator, stocked at Harbour Day Spa, is the O Cosmedics 3 in 1 Fruit Peel ($64), Mask and Gommage that exfoliates by releasing redundant cells and stimulating the growth of new, healthy ones. This is a professional strength product with V8 Peptide Complex that is applied, left to dry and peeled from the skin.
6. Balanced Diet
A healthy diet is the most important aspect to remaining happy and healthy in the New Year. There are many benefits of eating in moderation such as fighting off obesity and cardiovascular diseases. Including a broad range of vitamins and minerals in your diet are essential for booting immunity and healthy development so your body is able to fight of unwelcome conditions such as cancer and skeletal disorders. A healthy diet will also contribute to positive impacts on your mood and concentration levels by optimising and sustaining energy levels throughout the day. The benefits of eating well are endless…by improving your eating habits, you will sleep better each night, you will experience fewer cravings for sweets and will experience healthy glowing skin, shinier hair, stronger nails and healthy teeth.
At Harbour Day Spa, the In Skin Cosmedics Skintrition capsule range includes two products. The EFA’s 1000mg Max Complex capsules ($40) assist in blood circulation, improves general well-being, supports maintenance of healthy skin and hair whilst also helping to maintain a healthy heart and cardiovascular system. The Spirulina Plus ($40) formula is a Super Food, which is rich in protein content, amino acids, Iodine, B12, B1 & B1, has detoxifying properties whilst also helping to boost and maintain energy levels.
