Try using it when you first step in the shower and leaving it on your face while you do the rest of your routine, so the enzymes get a chance to do their sloughing action. Plus, there are other formulas designed for sensitive skin and acne-prone complexions. Say goodbye to breakouts, scarring, and uneven texture, and say hello to that gorgeous skin you always knew you had.
So back to Flow Athletic. The class we took was called Fit Strike, and as their website so accurately describes, it's a 45 minute cardio explosion (and they're not kidding!). It's split up into two sections that first sees you spinning for an all over aerobic and body workout, paying close attention to the butt and thighs, and even gets you doing push-ups — yes this is possible! Next up? TRX — suspension training at its finest.
By using gravity and your own body weight you'll perform slow moves that will challenge your muscles, strengthen and increase muscular endurance. And as if that wasn't enough, your trainer will probably throw in a few kettlebell interval workouts. No rest for the wicked here.
Flow Athletic is one of Sydney's hidden gems. And without all the hustle and bustle of bigger fitness centres, it's a great place to go to free yourself from an exercise rut and torch calories, fast! Go on, give a hybrid class a try.

The Cancer Council's new app hopes to play a huge role in reducing the amount of skin cancer cases reported each year. It's free to download for iPhone and Android, so there's no real excuse not to check it out. In just a few clicks you can set your location and be reminded daily of the temperature, the time of the day sun protection is required and when UV rays are at a level that will cause damage to your skin and eyes — so clever! Are you wowed yet? Well if you're still not convinced, the handy app can tell you whether you're getting enough vitamin D from the sun and it even has a calculator that determines how much sunscreen should be applied based on the type of clothing you are wearing. It really is one of the easiest ways to be sun smart all year long.

We loved the stick application because it allows for a more targeted approach and banishes spillage. That said, have a think about applying with a brush because it isn't overly hygienic to put the stick straight on your skin each day. Another thing to note, keep this primer away from overly dry areas as it can cause a bit of build up. It applies clear and dewy, but sets with a matte, dry-looking finish. Be sure to let it settle in and dry before applying your foundation. We finished with a setting powder and 15 hours later (yes, we work that hard!), our foundation still looked fresh. Pretty impressive.
It gives skin a more tightened and plump look, and if you think about the effects of an actual bee sting — it makes complete sense. Rather than causing pain, though, this facial moisturiser administers tiny amounts of purified bee venom which tricks the skin into thinking it's been affected by the melittin — the toxin in a bee's sting.
So what did we think? It didn't tingle at all and there wasn't any pain so no need to worry about that. However, if you are allergic to bee stings do not use this moisturiser. It could cause a reaction! The consistency is thick so it feels super luxe and hydrating. The brand's Advanced Moisturiser Complex is four times more hydrating than hyaluronic acid — and you know how much we love that.
