Makeup so good for your skin, you don’t need to wash it off

Makeup so good for your skin, you don’t need to wash it off

Megan Potter is an Australian qualified personal stylist, beauty therapist and makeup artist who has developed a range of cosmetics so good for your skin you don’t need to wash it off and joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Skin Care Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Megan Potter discuss the following:

  1. Why did you decide to develop your own range of cosmetics?
  2. Aren’t there many natural mineral makeup products out there?
  3. How is your makeup good for skin?
  4. Tell me about what others are saying about your makeup?
  5. Can everyone use Megan Potter Cosmetics?

TIP: If you do want to clean your face at the end of the day, there is no need to purchase expensive cleaners and exfoliate. Cleans your skin with simple coconut oil and a face washer, I think you call it a wash cloth? I use three drops of my Refreshing facial oil once at night. My skin is still moist and ready for me to apply makeup without any additional moisturizers. You might need to apply 3 drops again in the morning if you live in a dry climate – I’m here in Queensland Australia which is sup-tropical!


Megan Potter is a qualified personal stylist, beauty therapist and makeup artist having styled clients in Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide Australia. Her career began as a beauty therapist and makeup artist over a decade ago in Adelaide, and her career took her to Dubai in 2008 for the International Beauty Expo. It was there that Megan helped to put Australia on the map as a mecca for quality mineral makeup.

Her aim has always been to help women look and feel good, whatever their budget. Restoring and growing confidence and self-love in her clients is Megan’s absolute passion.

All of Megan’s own brand of makeup and skincare are made using 100% natural ingredients, are of the highest purity, and made in Australia.

It is time to be Ear Responsible! Enjoy your water passions without the pain

It is time to be Ear Responsible! Enjoy your water passions without the pain

March 17, 2019

 

Brian_Connors.jpg

 

Brian Connors, Director at SwimSeal Australasia that markets a unique product that protects the ear from pain and infections caused by water being trapped in the ear joins eHealth Radio and the Ear Health and Health News Channel.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Brian Connors discuss the following:

  1. What is SwimSeal Protective Ear Drops?
  2. Does it treat or prevent Swimmers Ear?
  3. What is the unmet need that SwimSeal Protective Ear Drops is addressing? How big of an issue is this?
  4. How are people dealing with this before the availability of SwimSeal?
  5. How adequate are these current practices?
  6. How do you use SwimSeal?
  7. What is in it? (what are the components of SwimSeal)?
  8. Who will most benefit from SwimSeal? A
  9. re there any precautions or contraindication?
  10. Does it build up in the ear? How does it get out?

After working in the medical device sector for over 25 years Brian saw the opportunity to introduce a new product into the Australian and Asian markets to protect ears against ear pain and infections caused by repeated exposure to water or by water being trapped in the ear after being in the water or even after showering.

After researching the market, Brian realised that the aural (ear) sector was underserved, especially in the area of prevention of water related pain and infection. Conservative estimates are that 2% of the population suffer from and infection each years and thousands more suffer pain and irritation form exposure to water.

The product, SWIMSEAL PROTECTIVE EAR DROPS was developed in conjunction with Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) medical specialists and uses a unique formulation of medical grade silicone and Australian Tea Tree Oil. It works as an upfront preventative against ear pain and infections and is safe to use for all ages from 6 months. With this background and with regulatory approval in the markets where the product is sold you can have peace of mind that it is safe to use.

It is the perfect companion for anyone who enjoys water sports - swimming, surfing, scuba diving and snorkelling, water polo synchronised swimming ...in fact any water based activity has a need for SWIMSEAL.

In addition it is ideal for mum’s and their little ones to ensure that bath time and water play times do not turn into interrupted nights and unnecessary visits to the doctor to treat painful ear infections.

Until now people have used products to try to treat retained water with little success. In fact most of these products are alcohol based and cause more harm than good!

Now with SwimSeal people can be ”ear responsible” not irresponsible and stop water causing damage to their ears.
