    Sleep & Youthful Skin
    Posted on
    Whether you’re a night owl or an early bird, getting enough sleep can really impact your health… including the youthful appearance of your skin! We all know what it’s like when we haven’t had enough sleep; those dreaded dark puffy circles under the old eyes, the short temper, the low energy. Yes, sleep can […]

    Known for centuries to reduce eye puffiness, cucumber has so many health benefits for both skin and body. Let’s explore some of those benefits. Cucumis Sativus – the humble cucumber. High in fibre and super high in water content (about 96%), cucumber in the diet can help the digestive system work more efficiently, and….well….get things […]

    How Effective is Natural Sun Protection, really?

    How Effective is Natural Sun Protection, really?
    Posted on
    In the almost four years since starting Rubifresh natural skincare, I have found that although there is a great interest in the idea of a natural sun screen, many Australians are sceptical about whether a natural product would be effective for our outdoors lifestyle in the intense Australian sun. The evidence seems conflicting, but like […]

    Fresh is Best

    Fresh is Best
    Posted on
    Just as fresh food is best for our bodies, so too are fresh ingredients best for our skin. But WHY? It is fairly well known that the fresher we eat our food (especially vitamin and mineral packed fruit & veg), the bigger the dose of those vits & minerals our bodies receive, and the better […]

    BASIC POST-WORKOUT SKINCARE ROUTINES
    Posted on
    If exercise is good for us, we would assume it is good for our skin. However, if we do not replenish our skin post-exercise we risk minimising the effect of our exercise, and causing skin problems that could be prevented. With a few basic steps after our workout, we can ensure we match our skin-health […]

    Double Cleansing for the most amazingly fresh skin
    Posted on
    Despite what we are lead to believe about cleansing the skin, using natural vegetable and nut oils for cleansing is one of the best things you can do for your skin. Oil cleansing has been used in many countries as a recognised face cleansing method. Natural oils, when rubbed in, dissolve impurities, environmental ‘dirt’ and makeup, […]

    OK, I must admit to drawing the line on healthy skin WAY before colonics! Call me a prude, call me scared….call me what you will, but don’t call me to book me in for a colonic! However, there is a school of thought about the healthy skin benefits of colonics. So read on….taken directly from […]

    Slowing down the aging process with antioxidants

    Slowing down the aging process with antioxidants
    Posted on
    We’ve probably all heard of free radicals and their harmful effects on the body’s aging process, but what does it really mean and how can we prevent the damage? Free radicals are damaged cells which are released when oxygen is processed by the body in the natural process called oxidation (the same occurs when you […]

    Terrific Tea Tree
    Posted on
    Tea Tree oil has long been used as a natural antiseptic, but is gathering interest due to some new research that highlights additional benefits. Pure tea tree oil comes from the leaves of the tea tree plant (not the tea plant…though it was used by 18th century sailors to make tea that smelled like nutmeg). […]

    The Truth about Coconuts
    Posted on
    Coconut oil was once considered a baddie due to its high percentage of saturated fat. In recent years, evidence has emerged to show not only that saturated fats are not the baddie they once were thought to be, but the unique combination of fatty acids in coconut oil actually have powerful medicinal properties, due to […]

    If someone asked you the question – “what is chamomile good for?”, you’d probably say that it is good for relaxing you before bed. You would, of course, be correct, but do you know why, and did you know that it’s benefits go way beyond bringing on sleep? It’s powerful benefits have encouraged us at […]

    I don’t normally do book reviews…and I haven’t even finished this book, but I attended a conference and heard Brene Brown speak. Her TED    talks have aparently gone bananas all around the world. Worth a look. WHY HERE ON RUBIWOMEN? Brene talks about vulnerability….not the kind of vulnerability we typically think of (ie vulnerability […]

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure…as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.” Nelson Mandela At the start of a new year, as kids start heading back to school, and the holiday glow starts to […]

    I love water! I love drinking it. I love my showers (really hot in winter!). I love swimming in it. I’ve always loved running under the sprinkler (though I did break my nose doing this when I was a kid). I love the rain…..and I know my skin loves water too. Hydration is one of […]
