Best practices for test and live environments

I am trying out the API products to use Okta for my application's authentication needs. My application will be deplyed in a staging environment and a live environment. How can I setup Okta to use it from both? If I use the same okta tenant (account), then my staging users get mixed up with the live users.

I did try setting both apps up as separate applications and then add users to groups assigned to the appropriate applications, but the fact remains that a user a@b.com (single okta user) will be used for staging and live. I would like to completely separate out those two. Any opinions / best-practices welcome.
