Colour light therapy is a treatment offered at thousands of medispas and salons and works by using light in different colours and wavelengths to target specific skin concerns.

The blue light can help to eliminate p-acne causing bacteria from the root, improve the environment inside the pores and restrain bacteria found deep in the skin.

The red light is used to increase hydration, promote collagen and eliminate wrinkles while the yellow light promotes circulation, dilutes pigment and can help reduce the roughness of the skin.

The mask is completely eco-friendly, has no UVA or UVB radiations and is not a laser.

The Peppy Co range also features a $119 silicone cleansing egg to gently but deeply cleanse your face without causing irritation.

A $25 gentle cleanser and $49 all-in-one sleeping mask is also available, and both have hundreds of positive reviews online.

Despite the swift growth, Mia said the success didn’t occur overnight and required ‘a lot of time, energy and perseverance’.

‘We were working hard but there were no results; it was psychologically difficult for us to deal with the fact that we were failing at something we wanted to work so badly,’ Mia told FEMAIL.

‘We are both high achievers. We both have double degrees in law and business, our professional career was something we always wanted to be proud of.’

The pair both have double degrees in law and business but decided to start an e-commerce business together, initially planning to open a law firm.

But after battling skin imperfections they decided to turn to starting a skincare range.  

‘It was a process of big learnings, great insights and self-reflection, and the biggest determination that got us to our first $100,000 monthly revenue,’ Mia said.
