WELLNESS FOR YOUR SKIN FROM WITHIN
COVID has changed the way we live so Noelle is updating the way we self-care. We’re spending a lot more time working from home which can make it tough to switch off. Top that off with the stresses of living in a pandemic and you have yourself a recipe for distress. To combat the mental, spiritual and physical harm that comes with our new normal, we need a new approach to self-care – and Noelle’s answer is to make it “active”.
Rituals are essential
Active self-care is another way of saying ritual. Rituals are ceremonial, special and sacred. We make time for them and look forward to doing them which means that we actively prioritise them. We truly believe that self-care has to go beyond being a treat – it should be an essential aspect of our lives.
Noelle is helping busy women build beauty and wellness rituals that they’ll love by creating wellness products fit for the spa and easy-to-use kits that make this time feel special. Through the power of Australian botanical extracts and innovative products that feel good to use, we’re making pampering sessions at home so luxurious, effective and joyful that they become a must.
The Importance of Less Stress
Stress in itself isn’t inherently bad for you. It’s normal and helpful to have a stress response to help us navigate through dangerous situations. Our stress response will trigger a quicker pulse, tense muscles and faster breathing – all ‘alert’ functions that will help you in a life-and-death situation.
But modern days stress is seldom life-threatening. And what’s even worse is when it doesn’t shut off. That means your body is operating in that hyper-tense state for prolonged periods and that can lead to various health issues including heart disease, high blood pressure, chronic illness, anxiety and depression. At the very least you’ll be crabby and a lesser version of your best self.
You’ll also be doing damage to your skin. Tension in the face can lead to deepening wrinkles and too much of the stress hormone cortisol can lead to an overproduction of oil and acne. If your stress gets so bad that it disrupts sleep, dark circles and puffiness under the eyes can start to form and your skin can start to lose elasticity.
Where Wellness Meets Beauty
Hitting the breaks on the stress cycle with spa rituals achieves two things at once. The wellness elements of a pamper session give you a chance to relax and give your body and mind a break from stress. Using powerful botanical extracts for your skin helps to undo some of the aesthetic damage from stress which will leave you feeling fresh and confident. We’re making at home wellness and spa rituals easy with the release of two new products in a ritual capsule collection.
Active wellness takes care of your skincare, beauty and mental health with potent and results-driven aromatherapeutic botanicals, via targeted healing routines.

Kangaroo Flower & Rose Revive Thermal Eye Mask
The delicate skin around our eyes needs nourishment and nurturing to prevent signs of aging. And when we’re tired, have had a lack of sleep or too much screen time – it shows in our eyes. This is why we’ve developed an easy-to-use thermal eye mask to give our eyes the care they need.
Each mask is sealed in an aluminium pouch and infused in Australian botanicals. This keeps ingredients fresh and prevents the thermal elements from activating. Once opened, the heat pads warm to a soothing 40°C to help your eyes rest and encourage our enriching ingredients to penetrate more deeply.
