Time for your Full Body MOT

Time for your Full Body MOT!

When I was at primary school I loved boys and adored playing “kiss-chase” at break time. One day I unfortunately tripped over my laces and managed to skid across the gravelly playground on my face! My mum was mortified especially when, even though I was fully healed, a wart had started to appear next to my lip and was growing! I was promptly whisked off to see a specialist who explained that the wart had formed as a result of my “kiss-hap”! He froze it off with liquid nitrogen and I now have a barely visible mark next to my mouth. I’ve often wondered if that experience is, in part, why I love a very specialised part of my job as a Beauty Therapist called Advanced Cosmetic Procedures (ACP).

February can be a tough slog of a month – the festivities are over, the weather is miserable, and there’s that pesky credit-card bill that just came in the post. Your body is calling out for a bit of self-care, but you may be reluctant to spend any money at all during February. I have some helpful insights as to why going to a beauty professional is worth the extra spend, as well as some money-saving tips if you’re in a squeeze.

We’ve all been there: we get our nails freshly manicured or our legs perfectly waxed or our spray tan freshly topped up and it looks amazing - we look amazing! We vow to ourselves to keep on top of our self-care regime and never let our nails grow out, our legs get hairy or our skin get pale again. But life goes on and, before we know it, we’re three nails down, two shades lighter and have a small forest growing on our legs. Now, I know I’m being overdramatic here, but I’ve met countless women who just don’t know how to stay on top of their beauty routines. Don’t worry, though, I’ve identified the top beauty treatments you’ll need to look great throughout 2020, with the low-down on how often you’ll need to have them done.

We all know that, when winter approaches, longer nights mean more time for partying. But while the party season is in full swing, and invites pop up everywhere, staying glam can turn into a full-time job that feels like a bit of a battle.

Using only the good stuff

Using only the good stuff

You might think that what goes on your skin, stays on your skin. But it doesn’t, some of it may actually end up in your bloodstream,  what you put on your body and your face is important. The question you may want to ask yourself when choosing beauty and skincare products is: would I be happy eating this? It may seem like a strange question, but when you realise that women can expect to ingest over 2kg of lipstick in their lippie-wearing lifetime (seriously!), you’ll realise it’s worth considering.

 
Nourishing yourself this November

Nourishing yourself this November

Proprietor/Manager

This can be a tricky time of year from a health and wellbeing standpoint. There seem to be loads of pernicious bugs going round, Christmas is near enough to be something else on our ‘to-do’ list but not close enough to actually enjoy and, with the vagaries of the weather, homes can either be too hot (turn the central heating on!)  or too cold (turn it off again!). Here are a few of my ideas for keeping well in mind, body and spirit as the nights draw in.

 
Embracing Maturity

Embracing Maturity

Women on TV and in film seem forbidden to age, with the exception of a few national treasures, such the incredible Dames, Judy Dench and Maggie Smith, and the occasional interesting role for actresses aged over 40. But, as I’m reminded daily in my salon, beauty knows no age. As an
over-40 myself,  I’m determined to embrace the ways in which my own body is changing – and to help my salon clients celebrate the benefits of maturity and make the most of their assets, too .

Some of the most effective and exciting are produced by Arbonne.

My Top Three Products to Pack for Your Summer Holiday

We all love jetting off on holiday, but trying to cram everything you need into one suitcase – or even one cabin bag! – can be a nightmare. Fortunately, some beauty products are great at multi-tasking, meaning you can pack cleverly and travel light. Here are my top three summer products to help keep you looking and feeling great on holiday without breaking the check-in rules.

 
How to get a head-start on your tan this summer

How to get a head-start on your tan this summer

We all want to look and feel our best this summer, whether you’re looking forward to parading your new bikini on the beach, going to a friend’s wedding or getting your friends and family together for a barbeque, it’s nice to feel confident doing it. We all live busy lives and, despite our best efforts, it can be difficult to build up a tan in preparation for an upcoming event just by sunning in the garden at the weekends. Getting a spray tan might be the perfect, safe solution for leaving you perfectly sun kissed in just 20 minutes and at an affordable price.

A holiday can pass us by all too quickly and before you know it, you’re on your way back to England’s more temperamental weather. In order to make the most of your week or so abroad, there are steps you can take in the weeks leading up to your holiday, to get your skin prepared for the sun.

 
Why hair removal treatments might be the perfect pre-holiday preparation for you

Why hair removal treatments might be the perfect pre-holiday preparation for you

These are all things that Beauté  can help you with as well. We offer a range of hair removal treatments – whether you want silky smooth legs or to tidy your bikini line – which have different benefits.

 
How Advanced Cosmetic Procedures could help you get Summer Ready

How Advanced Cosmetic Procedures could help you get Summer Ready

If you’re like me, the approach of summer fills me with mixed emotions. On the one hand, the warm weather is delightful – longer days mean more time to see friends, and barbeques on the beach are calling. Unfortunately, whilst all of this excites me, it’s normal to feel a little apprehensive about the pressure to look and feel a certain way in summer clothes. We all have little blemishes on our skin that we get nervous about revealing, and whilst beauty comes from within, we love to help women feel more confident in their own body. This is where our Advanced Cosmetic Procedures can help.

All it takes is 30 days to make your life healthier

All it takes is 30 days to make your life healthier

If you have been reading our blogs, you will know that I am a massive fan of Arbonne and everything they do. I am so much of a fan that I decided to become an Arbonne consultant, which led me to try the Arbonne 30 Days to Healthy Living package. 30 days may not seem a long time; for me the months seem to fly by, so when I first began the nutrition shake-up, I was sceptical about whether 30 days could make a difference to my wellness and ultimately my life – but it did. Since 2017 I have completed the programme four times and love how the Arbonne goodies make me and my body feel. It is because of the enormous difference it made to my health, perspective and overall wellness that I wanted to share with you what the 30 days to Healthy Living programme is and how it can help you transform your life in just one month – it’s a fabulous programme at any time of the year, and especially if you want to be your best version of you this summer.

 
Make sure your flip-flops arent a flop this summer

Make sure your flip-flops aren’t a flop this summer

The summer is getting ever closer, the days are longer, and you could definitely enjoy a picnic in the park or a coat-free stroll. As the days start to warm up, I’ve been thinking more and more about shedding my winter soles and stepping into summer. Getting your feet summer ready at home can be a laborious task, with sloshing home foot spas and getting more of your living room wet than your feet. Here at Beauté, we have some special summer treatments which will have your toes in tip-top condition.

The RF8 is our revolutionary new treatment which will become your beauty best friend. It helps to lift, firm and tighten the skin on those tricky areas which are notorious to tackle, such as the tummy, bum, thighs and bingo wings.

Bingo wings can be source of frustration and insecurity, especially  if you want to shed your cover up this summer. If this sounds like you, then here is how the RF8 can help.

It’s time to work out your work-out recovery

With the sun starting to make more of an appearance and the thought of summer on everyone’s mind, you are probably starting to think more and more about getting outside and enjoying the sunshine! You might be thinking about picking up the tennis racquet again, pulling your trainers back on to go for a run or taking the plunge into the pool. Whichever sport you settle on, make sure you’re also allowing your body to recover after physical activity. The best way to recover? An after-sports drink – and here’s why.

Wedding season is upon us! You may have already received ‘save the dates’ through the post or you may be getting ready to be a maid of honour, the mother of the bride or even the bride! Whatever brings you to the church this year, it’s important that you look your best – after all, those wedding photos are going to be everyone’s Facebook profile picture or adorn at least seven people’s mantle pieces. Here at Beauté we can get you, and your bridal party, ready for the big day.

 
The 20-minute trick to sun-kissed skin

The 20-minute trick to sun-kissed skin

This week for the first time since last September I didn’t bring a coat to work with me, an umbrella – yes, those April showers are unpredictable – but not a coat. Have you started to ditch your winter clothes for something a bit lighter? Maybe you’ve jettisoned the jumpers for t-shirts or the trousers for skirts? It is as the weather starts warming up that you begin to realise just how pale you are. But don’t fear if the winter has left your skin a bit pale and pasty, because Beauté are here to help you shed the layers and face the warmer weather with confidence.

It is these tough areas which our specialised RF8 treatments can specifically target to help you achieve that summer body you have been longing for.

 
Spring clean your skin

Spring clean your skin

Spring is almost upon us and as the days are warming up and the daffodils are blooming it has got us thinking about spring cleaning. Yes, we know it’s the time that traditionally you turn out all your cupboards, but it’s also the perfect time to spring clean your skin. In the winter, your skin can become dull and dry with the wind chapping lips and the dreaded cold drying out noses, but with spring just around the corner now is the perfect time for a skin shape up.
