Kate Lester – Founder & Dermal Therapist

What do you love about Body Beautiful Retreat? 
I’ve proudly created a place like no other – a vision where skin & beauty meets connection. Body Beautiful Retreat is the coming together of bespoke skin & beauty treatments, soulful conversations, self-care & self-love. A safe place where clients are seen, heard and respected.

Fav BBR Treatment: 
Our leading DMK Facials where the results are like no other. I love guiding and educating clients to having a healthy, functioning skin. I also love the instant results we get through Vivace RF microneedling. These two modalities are really second to none!

Can’t live without Skin or Beauty Product: 
Impossible to choose just one… Jane Iredale Pure pressed mineral powder, DMK Wetter than water, Firmatrix, Eye web, Regul8 relax and herbal pigment oil. 

Guilty Pleasure: 
Cadbury chocolate, hot chips and kombucha.

What do you love about Body Beautiful Retreat?
It’s such a beautiful working environment. We’re constantly nurtured and provided with additional training – which helps us as therapists provide the best experience for our beautiful clients.

Fav BBR Treatment:
Combining results with relaxation is something I really enjoy doing, and our enzyme therapy facial accomplishes precisely that! You will feel and see a change in your skin from the very first treatment! The results are spectacular especially when combined with our Medical grade LED light therapy! Another treatment favourite of mine is the RF microneedling achieving amazing results which can also be combined with the enzyme therapy for the next level in your skin journey!

Can’t live without Skin or Beauty Product:
So hard to choose just one but Healthy skin comes from within, so I would say DMK EFAs are one of my favourites! Working internally to support healthy glowing, gorgeous skin. Beta gel and Direct delivery vitamin C are incredible and an essential part of my skincare routine! A little hot tip is that the Actrol powder under makeup is amazing to keep everything in place all day while getting the added benefits of ingredients that are anti-bacterial, brightening, soothing, healing and absorbs excess sebum!

Guilty Pleasure:

Zarin – Clinical Esthetician 

What do you love about Body Beautiful Retreat?
There is so much I love. I love how comforting this space is and that it is balanced with the teams knowledge, passion and talent for achieving the best outcomes for our clients.

Fav BBR Treatment:
By far my favourite treatments to receive and perform is the Vivace RF micro needling and the DMK Enzyme therapies. 

Can’t live without Skin or Beauty Product:
I love my DMK skincare routine and the ritual of self care, so narrowing it down to one product is hard for me. But I think Beta gel and direct delivery C serums are absolutely essential. 

Guilty Pleasure:
Food! Everything about it, eating, cooking, sharing it. It's my love language.

What do you love about Body Beautiful Retreat?
I feel instantly relaxed when I come to work. Kate has created a beautiful space where everyone is welcome. I have never felt so supported as a therapist in my whole 17 years in the industry until BBR. Whatever your goals are we will always do our best to achieve them and leave you feeling relaxed.

Fav BBR Treatment:
Hands down our DMK enzyme therapy is my favourite as we can deliver results with relaxation. They can also be tailored to your own concerns and needs. I love educating my clients on their skin and products and being along side them with their skin journey. 

Can’t live without Skin or Beauty Products:
Love my 100% mineral makeup by Jane iredale, as I wear it all day I know it will help my skin. Love my DMK skin routine that actually works and always leaves my skin feeling and looking amazing!

Guilty Pleasure:
Mint patties always after lunch, anything lemon. I love all foods and share with others.

Here at BBR we honor integrity, celebrate our authenticity and house a family of loyal, respectful team members and clients. A team bound together, initially through commonality creating a safe space for growth in trust, loyalty and respect. We endeavour to have our hearts and minds wide open. Where vulnerability becomes our strength and as we grow, have faith and trust that each and everyday will be better than the last.


Communication is at the forefront of our BBR culture. With communication comes a healthy balance of respect and trust between one another to make room for recognition, creating an incomparable sense of worthiness and love for ourselves. A judgement free space to express yourself openly with honesty knowing that each and everyone is always heard and seen when expressing oneself.


A BBR we are never complacent, our investment in knowledge and growth is unparalleled. A journey of growth here, is one filled with adventure, determination and fun. Allowing us to provide the perfect balance of results and relaxation with every treatment we do.
