Why have a skincare routine? At the end of each day, you’re tired and just want to crawl into bed. But wait!! Spending just 5 minutes on your skin will make a difference – say goodbye to dehydrated, tight skin; say goodbye to congested skin; say goodbye to dull skin! Say hello to happy, balanced, hydrated skin.
Step 1: Cleanse – remove makeup & the remains of the day (pollution, dirt, grime, perspiration). These are all factors in making your skin look dull and can lead to congestion and breakouts.
Step 2: Tone – completes the cleansing process, hydrates and refreshes the skin.
Step 3: Moisturise – hydrates, nourishes and balances the skin.
Step 4: Exfoliation – done weekly – this helps to remove dead skin cells leaving your skin glowing & radiant. Makeup goes on like a dream.
Our product of the week will help you start an easy and beneficial skincare routine!
That dread. You wake up in the early morning hours feeling as though you are swallowing fire, ears aching, head full of cotton wool, and all you can think is oh no. Please no. I can’t be sick. I don’t have time to be sick. I’ve made commitments to clients to help them feel better. I have a business to run. I have things to do.
So, you layer on feeling physically rotten with feeling mentally rotten. Having to change appointments, messing with someone’s already limited time, you can’t help but feel as though you’ve let them down, disappointed them.
Why do we do this to ourselves? Why do we pile on the guilt rather than pile on the duvet? Why do we feel anxious rather then rested? Why do we punish ourselves for being human?
Between the cold & flu relief tablets, the boxes of tissues, the endless cups of tea..these are the worries that fill my mind. With the winter we’re having, I doubt I’m the only one.
Be kind to yourself,
Time flies when you’re having fun! Massively thankful to all of my new and loyal clients of 2017. I look forward to seeing you all during 2018.
Thinking back over 2017, Nautilus had a fantastic year. Our focus is always on our clients – impeccable service, incredible treatments, a spotless relaxed salon, and product ranges that our clients love.
Nautilus introduced PHYT’s skincare and a new facial menu which has been overwhelmingly well received! I became a Waxperts trained and qualified waxing therapist and launched their award winning range in the salon. Delighted that we now offer world leader CND Shellac nail services. One of the biggest honours of all, I won the Irish Hair and Beauty Award for Masseuse of the Year.
I’m excited to see what 2018 brings all of us. I hope it’s a focus on self-care, our health-both physical and mental, and continuing to grow and learn from one another.
I’m wishing you a healthy & happy 2018!

PHYT’s Rénov is a Glycolic Treatment unlike any other!
What does PHYT’Skin Rénov do?
• Evens out skin irregularities & roughness
• Fades acne scars
• Restores natural radiance
• Reduces pigmentation
• Reduces pore size
• Smooths out wrinkles and fine lines
• Softens and tones the skin
PHYT’S has developed the first Cosmeceutical Certified Organic Glycolic Peel; a real skin renovator with 30% Glycolic Acid of natural origin* (*Sugar Cane).
It is a gentle and non invasive treatment which works on the skin’s superficial layer: the stratum corneum, and in turn stimulates the connective tissue beneath. PHYT’Skin Rénov offers a gentle skincare treatment with quick visible results. The skin appearance is improved through a program of home-use products and a FOUR session treatment without recovery or downtime. A glycolic treatment simply rapidly exfoliates the skin: many new cells are generated quickly at the base of the epidermis which pushes out the thickened layer of dead cells so the skin looks smooth, fresh, bright and youthful.
• 1– At home prior to the peel: the skin needs to be prepared at home 2 weeks before the professional treatment to test its tolerance to active ingredients used in the peel; to prepare the skin for the treatment; and to condition the skins surface.
• 2 – The professional peel: this skincare treatment is divided into3 key steps: skin cleansing and preparation; application of the acid solution; and finally neutralising, followed by the application of a soothing moisturiser and Spf 50.
• 3 – At home after the peel: Continuing the treatment at home, after the peel, is absolutely necessary to protect and soothe the skin. SPF (High Factor 30+) is a MUST throughout the treatment.
Even as a Massage Therapist who is passionate about massage and the many benefits it can bring, I need to periodically tap into that “why massage” by actually getting one myself.
My 92 year old grandmother and I went for massages today. Yep, that’s right. She’s ninety-two and she loves getting massages.
As someone who is chronologically elderly and who has lived independently as a widow for years, she firmly believes there is tremendous healing power in the simple act of therapeutic touch. And she’s right. Lower blood pressure, reduced anxiety, increased appetite, improved sleep and a general boost to an overall feeling of wellness are all benefits.
For my massage experience today, for the first time in ages, I didn’t have a laundry list of aches and pains for the therapist to sort out in an hour.
Let me tell you, we floated out of our treatment rooms. There’s a lot to be said for getting that “just because” massage. Don’t leave it until you feel your neck may snap from the stress and tightness. Don’t wait until you can hardy bend over from low back pain.
While I love the relief I get from having my aching shoulder or tight hip worked on, I actually felt more rested, more relaxed and more rejuvenated after today’s treatment.
So, why massage? I think I’d have to answer with, why not?
I’ll be back in Nautilus Dublin on the 15th of August ready to share the power of massage with you.
If you’re familiar with the double-ended Jane Iredale Mystikol powdered eyeliner and highlighter, which you had to click into the cap to gather the product, then you’re going to LOVE the revamped much simpler to use version!
The updated Mystikol includes a perfectly sized built-in brush, which makes lining or creating a smudged-out smoky eye so easy. The product itself is a lightweight, long-lasting cream to powder formula that doesn’t crease. It’s available in four rich colours.
Granted, my video skills are still a work in progress, but below is a video showing how simple the new Mystikol is to apply. Stocked at Nautilus, €25, contact us to order yours. We’re also happy to ship within Ireland.
I’m looking for case study participants as part of my post-graduate course in Fertility Reflexology. If you or someone you know:
*is having difficulty conceiving, even if you/they have had a child already
*is undergoing Assisted Reproductive Treatment (ART)
— then please get in touch.
We’ll take a holistic approach together for your reflexology treatment and look at a number of areas of concern such as stress, nutrition, hormone regulation, charting & much more.
Participants will receive their treatment, including an in-depth consultation, at a reduced rate by a qualified reflexologist.
