Museo recently worked with some of the best wedding vendors across Perth to create a dream wedding day for Emma & Matt, who were married at Nedlands Yacht Club.

Museo were responsible for the stunning hair and makeup styling for the bride and her bridal party on the day, ensuring all these lovely girls looked and felt their absolute best in this stunning wedding.


For Emma, a softly swept upstyle was the logical choice, as it provided the perfect mounting place for her gorgeous long veil, an absolute showstopper against the back of this HobNob Bridal wedding dress. The delicately pulled back edges of this style meant that well into the evening of dancing, this style holds its own and stays put. You can see that well into the evening, Emma’s hair still looks fresh and poised, perfect for this beautiful bride.


Each of the bridesmaids wore a different variation of stunning Adrianna Papell beaded gowns, and so for each bridesmaid we created a hair style as unique as they were.Soft upstyles and soft curls across all the bridesmaids gave them a coordinated look without being matchy matchy and allowed each style to really sit and suit each of these beautiful women.

For this beautiful group of ladies, we focussed on soft, natural makeup designed to enhance their features without being overly structured. A soft, dark eye, natural brows and a hint of highlighter in all the right places adds great contrast on each face, while a soft rosy blush adds a touch of spring to each of these gorgeous ladies. A slightly bolder pink lip for the bridesmaids really complimented their blush dresses, while the bride chose to stay soft and natural in her lip colour. For these lovely ladies, makeup was all about adding a little to what they all had, rather than detracting from their stunning dresses or the beautiful bride.


The team at Museo have worked on many stunning weddings in Mount Lawley and Perth, creating beautiful looks for brides, grooms and the bridal party with our unique blend of salon, spa and skin for both men and women. Whether you are looking for the perfect spa experience to relax in prior to your wedding day, a beautiful team of hairdressers to create a gorgeous look or talented makeup artists who know how to achieve just the right look, the team at Museo would love to help you have your dream wedding day. We offer Wedding Spa Packages designed with your bride-tribe in mind and are available for makeup and hair services on site in our beautiful salon and spa space. Book online with the Museo team at and we hope to be part of your dream day.

At Museo Skin + Spa, we know that having bad skin can feel like the worst thing that has ever happened to you. Particularly for teenagers, who are struggling to find their way and place in the world, bad skin can be seen as just another thing that isn’t going right or is holding them back and affecting their confidence.


As our children move into adolescence, some will be prone to acne unfortunately and to ensure they are not left with irreversible scarring and/or hyperpigmentation a good home care routine needs to be established quickly. For those skins that have visible blackheads with no pustules- we can clear a skin quite quickly in this 1st stage with a good facial and introduction of a home skin routine. For skins that have progressed further a 6-month skin programme may be needed with bi-monthly facials in conjunction with a clinical home care routine.


As teenagers start to move towards big exams and their Year 11 and 12 school balls, even those with the clearest of skins can experience breakouts that seem to take on a life of their own, appearing from nowhere and causing more stress than they are worth.

The skin specialists at Museo Skin + Spa have some great tips below for anyone struggling with occasional breakouts, acne, or the teen who hasn’t as yet established a skin routine.

Why teenagers?

Acne and breakouts usually begin in teenagers because during puberty there is a complete shift in hormones, which can cause an increase in the size and oil production (sebum) of oil glands. With thick excess sebum sitting on the skin, it blocks the opening of the pore and causes a plug. Due to the blocked pore, there is a reduction in oxygen, which creates the perfect environment for oil-eating bacteria that live naturally in your skin (p.acnes bacteria) to multiply and encourage inflammation and infection – hence a pimple is formed. Blackheads are usually caused from oxidised sebum on the skin, and so teenagers will often suffer from both as they move through adolescence.


Yes, Stress Can Make it Worse.

It’s not a coincidence that pimples always seem to pop up at the worst times. Just before the big game, just before your big exam, just before the ball or prom. It’s because stress affects hormones, and changes in hormones affect your skin. The less stressed you are, the better your skin is likely to be – not that that is always achievable! If you can’t control the stress, then the best thing you can do is to control the skin.


What to do for your pimples.

For most teenagers, a good skin routine needs to be established as their skin changes and they go through puberty. The earlier you start on using good products for your skin and getting into a routine, the less likely it is for pimples to get out of hand and cause serious scarring to the face. For those with pimples, you need to include target-specific ingredients to balance sebum production and to control the environment that acnes bacteria thrives in.


  • Cleanse
    Cleansers can greatly reduce the amount of excess sebum hanging out on your skin, but over cleansing can encourage your skin to produce more sebum – the opposite of what we are trying to achieve here. So, cleanse daily, but don’t go at your face with rough scrubs or cleansing multiple times a day or use the alcohol-based cleansers often found in chemists- it can actually cause more harm than good.
  • Moisturise
    It often sounds counter-intuitive to apply moisturiser or other oily products to your skin when you’re suffering from oily skin in the first place, but its imperative to the protection of the skin and healing any damage. Moisturise daily after you cleanse to ensure your skin is well nourished and protected throughout the day.

*Try our O Cosmedics Mineral Pro SPF 30+; a moisturizer, sunscreen with a sheer tint. A great simple daily moisturizer for teens containing zinc oxide – a powerful ingredient which is scientifically proven to help reduce antimicrobial/bacterial properties associated with acne as well lowering inflammation that is triggered by acne and helps regulate the production of sebum.


    The advice is all there, but we all know how hard it is not to pop a pimple. But particularly on young skin, they can leave severe scarring or cause post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation that can be with you for life – so best to avoid popping them when you can. If you absolutely have to get rid of a spot, make sure you’ve got a warmed (steam from having a shower works well) clean, moist skin and clean hands first.

*We recommend coming in for one of our blackhead extracting facials where our skin therapists expertly extract blackheads while simultaneously reducing inflammation. We include the high-frequency current, which produces a gentle spray of oxygen molecules that penetrate deep into the areas that are affected by blackheads and enlarged pores. The treatment is applied by passing the hf current through neon gas-filled glass electrodes, which gives a gentle warming feeling to the skin.


The reality is that for particularly nasty blackheads and blockages these skins are best left to the professionals to ensure they are removed with as little damage to the skin as possible. The team at Museo Skin + Spa offer a complete Teen Acne Control Treatment Package which includes a consultation on your skin, a deep pore facial to remove any nasty blackheads or blockages, as well as a take-home cleanser and moisturiser. This gives teens all the gear they need to make a change in their skin and advice on what is going to banish the breakouts. Book your teen in for one of our Teen Acne Control Treatment Packages online today.


Winter is a tough time on your skin. Winds whipping around your face or ankles, dry conditions that leave you feeling a bit scaly and just the general cold taking its effect on your skin – we are all feeling the effect of the change in seasons on our epidermis.


Yes, we may have things a bit better off in Australia than most European countries when it comes to extremes of weather - but trips to the snow, scalding hot showers, wind and indoor heating cannot be ignored. So here are our top tips on refreshing your winter skin from the décolleté’ down…


  1. Scrub

First things first, cut your losses and run. Any surface skin cells that are feeling the strain need to go, to expose beautiful fresh skin below. A good quality scrub is perfect at this time of year, as Winter is generally a time of rejuvenation – and it’s no different in your body. A sea salt scrub to redeposit minerals will leave you feeling silky smooth, while a scrub made from oats or psyllium husk can be soothing for dry, tired skin.


  1. Treat

Whether it is a massage for your body infused with a gentle exfoliation, or a body wrap to enrich and refresh your skin – choose a treatment that is designed to restore and rejuvenate. Look for essential oils that can be blended with oils for massage or a body wrap, or ingredients sure to hydrate – milk or mud are both beautiful in this treatment.

  1. Soak

Take a relaxing soak in water infused with essential oils. Not only will it make you feel calm and warmed by the water, but the essential oils are revitalising and enriching your skin with their restorative properties – a fabulous treat after your scrub. At this time of year in particular, it’s important that you don’t have the water too hot or you will scald yourself and stress your winter skin out further – so go for warm, and not too hot in your soak or shower.


  1. Moisturise

It’s important that you don’t expose your beautiful fresh skin created through your scrub and soak to the elements without protection. A thick moisturiser will trap in the essential oils you have put into your soak while refreshing your skin and giving you that silky smooth feeling. Morning and evening moisturising for your whole body is ideal at this time of year, and being that it is a bit chillier, you aren’t left with that sticky feeling you can get with moisturising in summer. Leave your skin feeling recharged, refreshed and ready to take on whatever the weather throws at us next.


If you’re feeling the effects of Winter on your skin and want to change things, feel refreshed and rejuvenated, Museo Skin + Spa want to help you achieve your best winter skin. Our Winter Warmers package combines the best of our Day Spa treatments along with your favourite scents and options to create a completely custom day in spa for you, designed to restore, revitalise and refresh your skin. You can learn more about our Winter Warmers package here, or book in for your treatment online.


We know the benefits of eating an organic diet – no nasty chemicals in your gut, no nasty chemicals destroying the soil and natural ecosystems – but why don’t we automatically apply this same thinking to our skincare?

Applying synthetic products to your skin, loaded with chemicals and preservatives, contributes to ageing - even if the products claim to have anti-aging properties, the damage that the chemicals and preservatives will do to your skin will ultimately outweigh any of the good they might do.

Key ingredients like antioxidants, flavonoids, different acids etc. found in botanicals like flowers, fruit and vegetables offer both protective and restorative qualities for your skin. They will protect you from UV damage, help plump and freshen the skin as well as helping with reducing the looks of fine lines and wrinkles– and all these ingredients are completely natural, no chemicals or preservatives needed.

By choosing Certified Organic products, you are committing yourself to wellness. To an idea that natural and less processed is best, and this flows from the foods you eat to the products you use on your skin. By choosing Certified Organic you are protecting your skin for the future, and helping to protect the planet for the future generations – our children and grandchildren. It’s a commitment to the long game, and to true health and wellness.

We understand that Certified Organic products are often more expensive as they are generally made in smaller batches, shorter runs and have a shorter shelf life. That’s all good news for your skin because you will have the benefit of beautiful fresh creams, serums and masks that haven’t been sitting in a huge warehouse for years before they are applied to your skin. What’s not to love there!

The reality is that if we all do our part in purchasing Certified Organic products, whether that is in your food or your skincare, the organic industry will grow and prices will become more competitive. We look forward to the day when Certified Organic Skincare is just Skincare again and we do away with chemicals and preservatives in these products altogether.

You can purchase the beautiful Certified Organic Divine Company range, which offers a wide range of body and facial products, at Museo Skin + Spa. You can even indulge in treatments that are made up of completely Certified Organic products, including our Divine Facials and Aromatherapy Massage.

Bath Soak | Why a soak is the ultimate luxury | Museo

Why a soak is the ultimate luxury

Why a soak is the ultimate luxury

At Museo Skin + Spa, a bath is very close to our hearts. The perfect way to wind down from a busy day, a place to reflect and truly take time just for yourself, they are an absolute favourite of our team. We offer a Stone Bath Soak as part of many of the treatments offered in the Spa.


Baths and soaking, in general, can offer incredible benefits for your skin. After the use of strong scrubs or oils in massage, a soak is a great way to replenish and rehydrate the skin, relaxing it and allowing it to return to a neutral state after treatment. By utilising ingredients like oats for hydrating and softening the skin, bergamot for detoxifying and rose for correcting skin pigmentations, a soak can truly affect the skin you’re in.


Submerge yourself in one of the stone, egg-shaped baths in our stylish indoor/ outdoor bathing pavilion. You can enjoy this special water therapy alone or with a friend. We enhance your bathing experience by adding a personalised treatment elixir from our decadent menu to your bath. This ritual is the perfect way to follow on from an exfoliation or wrap.


By taking time out of a busy schedule to soak and relax in the water, you allow yourself space to truly think and reflect, allowing the space for realisations and new learnings. Whether it is an internal or external reflection, taking the time for yourself is key to good mental and physical health.


A soak offers the perfect change to truly relax and feel absolutely decadent, accompanied by your favourite cup of tea and scents to make your cares drift away. It allows you to reconnect with yourself and your own purpose, and the perfect way to treat yourself either in the Spa or at home.


With any Museo Skin + Spa treatment, you can add on a Stone Bath Soak as part of your visit to the spa, and we particularly recommend it after any of our body treatments, like massage, scrub or wrap. Take the time out of your day to really relax, indulge and get back in tune with yourself.

One of the biggest buzz words in the beauty industry for the past 10 years has been chemical peels. Whether they are dermal peels or enzymatic peels, these treatments have been used regularly to enhance the appearance of the skin, particularly as you age.


Skin peels performed today tend to be a quick process event, often applied before a big event (like your wedding) but are more popular as a maintenance procedure for their anti-aging properties and their ability to rebuild, strengthen, and repair from the inside out. They also, most importantly, re-surface the very top layer of the skin, smoothing out lines, evening skin tone, decongesting pores (depending on the type of peel that you use) and ensure the skin is left feeling lighter and brighter.


Dermal peels tend to fall into two different categories – chemical and enzymatic. Each offers different benefits for the skin and should be used for different skin types.


Dermal peels are now considered  ‘part of’ our normal skin routine. Previously they were only used to re-freshen and stimulate cellular turnover, but these days more commonly used to achieve targeted results and overcome skin concerns and conditions. These days dermal peels are a blend of high-end vitamins, peptides and anti-oxidants - beautifully crafted with AHA’s, BHA’s and enzymes in advanced delivery systems to ensure the skin is rebuilt, strengthened and repaired.



An effective anti-ageing treatment, dermal peels visibly improve your skin’s appearance. Hero ingredients typically included are your retinols (Vitamin A) and your AHA’s ( glycolic/lactic ) which are naturally occurring fruit acids and BHA’s ( salicylic ). The solution can cause (not always as every skin is unique) the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel off, revealing regenerated skin. Perfect for skins looking for intense skin correction and transformation.


For best results, we recommend a course of dermal peels, applied over a six-week period, to deliver the best results for the skin. Some skin prepping may be required, but please call Museo Skin + Spa to discuss the correct preparation for your specific treatment as well as other facial modalities like skin needling which produce amazing results when combined with dermal peeling.



Enzymatic peels are formulated using natural ingredients, most of which you could find in your pantry. Each of the ingredients used contains a natural acid, like lactic acid or citric acid, which again encourages the skin to regenerate by removing top-layer dead skin cells. The major benefit of enzymatic peels is that they are generally gentler on the skin, using enzymes of pumpkin and pomegranate for example - perfect for those with sensitive skin and as a stepping stone before moving onto dermal peels. All enzymatic peels offered by Museo include rich antioxidants, vitamins and minerals designed to also hydrate and nourish your skin while having your treatment.


Museo uses O Cosmedics Peels, which are based on medical strength actives - pure, chiral ingredients, biomimetic and encapsulated carriers. They are a synergy of nutrients to restore healthy cellular pathways. O Cosmedics point of difference is Biomimetic ingredients, which takes us one step further from cosmeceutical ingredients to COSMEDICAL ingredients to achieve cell optimization. All O Cosmedics peels include a mini facial process as they come with an Alginate mask step, which decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while completely rehydrating the skin due to its active ingredients This extra step in the O Cosmedics Peel process leaves you feeling relaxed and treated. It is about correcting your skin – not just peeling.


Museo Clinical Peels are designed to rejuvenate your skin and correct a variety of skin problems, including photo damage, pigmentation, fine lines, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, acne and scarring. Our highly trained therapists will work with you to achieve you personalised, targeted and effective results. Whether it is chemical or enzymatic, we are able to recommend a chemical peel designed specifically for your skin that will give you the results you are looking for and ensure that your skin continues to look bright, plump and fresh.
