Manicures & Pedicures:
The most exposed part of your body is your hands, as they are always on show. In summer, with pretty sandals and bare feet the order of the day, your feet are exposed to scrutiny as well. The benefits of a professional manicure and pedicure include much more than just the appearance of your hands and feet. Mani-Pedis keep your nails healthy, and clean. You'll have the benefit of checking hangnails for fungus or other infections. Keeping your nails trimmed at an appropriate length is a necessity for keeping healthy, strong nails as well. Mani-Pedis keep hands and feet smooth and soft.

Staying well-hydrated is always important, particularly in the summer months when the temperature rises and our perspiration ('sweating') increases. It is recommended that 14 to 22 fluid ounces (oz) (just under 2 to 3 cups) be consumed 2 hours prior to an event or planned activity, and 6 to 12 oz be consumed every 15 to 20 minutes (as tolerated) during, as well as after, an activity in order to replace water loss. The best way to beat dehydration is to drink before you get thirsty. If you wait until after you're thirsty, you're already dehydrated.
Exercise & Fitness:
Running, walking, gardening, Pilates, Yoga, Zumba, – it’s all good. Regardless of what you do, regular exercise and physical activity is the path to health and well-being. Exercise burns fat, builds muscle, lowers cholesterol, eases stress and anxiety, and lets us sleep restfully. In this guide, we match resources to your exercise needs -- at every fitness level.
Is Your Exercise Sustainable?
Sus•tain•a•ble. (Adj) 1. Able to be maintained at a certain level or rate.
We are constantly reminded of “sustainability” when it comes to environmental issues, but what about exercise?
The goal of proper exercise is to trigger a response mechanism within the body that results in a stronger, leaner, and more flexible “you.” Properly directed exercise not only extends how long you will live, but also improves your health and well-being during your entire lifespan (not just for a short period in your life).
This same principle applies to programs that don’t do enough to trigger the body’s response mechanism to grow fit. Walking might be great (and enjoyable) as a sustainable physical activity, but it is inefficient for triggering muscle and strength gains, or even preventing osteoporosis and muscle loss as we age. Exercise needs to be intense enough to trigger the body’s response mechanism, and this level of intensity differs with each individual. However, it never takes more than 15 minutes, once or twice per week, to achieve. A well-designed high intensity-low momentum exercise program is best for triggering the body’s response mechanism while avoiding injury—the perfect goal for an ideal sustainable exercise program.

Your weight is a balancing act, but the equation is simple: If you eat more calories than you burn, you gain weight. And if you eat fewer calories than you burn, you lose weight. Keep in mind it may take some experimenting to find the right diet for your individual body. It’s important that you feel satisfied so that you can stick with it on a long-term basis. If one diet plan doesn’t work, then try another one. There are many ways to lose weight. The key is to find what works for you.
Body Scrubs and Massage:
Body scrubs are a great way to keep your skin healthy and beautiful through exfoliation. The most popular body treatment is a sea salt or brown sugar scrub combined with essential oils. Combined with the relaxing benefits of a massage, this indulgent treatment leaves your skin velvety soft.
Healthy, good looking skin begins with skin care. Facials are an essential ingredient of your overall skin care program. A facial is a spa therapy and massage that leaves your skin cleaner, softer, younger, and truly transformed. Facials can help clear clogged pores, quench parched skin and remove dead cells. Facials involve some massage which aids in blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. The facial massage also helps to relax facial muscles which can slow the onset of wrinkles on the face. Puffiness reduction, sagging in the face and skin cell renewal are additional benefits from these massage techniques.
This treatment has been scientifically-tested and clinically proven to reduce cellulite, rid your body of diet and exercise resistant fat, and tighten and tone loose, sagging skin. Lipomassage™ is designed to fight especially resistant, trapped fat, which is typically retained in the thighs (including cellulite), hips, stomach, buttocks and knees.
While the negative effects of the sun and UV tanning beds continue to be a main topic in the media, people are switching to safer tanning alternatives. One of the most popular alternatives has become the airbrush tan which is widely available and affordable, and has made sunless tanning lotions and spray booths things of the past. Because of its extremely natural appearance and easy application process, airbrush tanning can not only save you time and money, but can save your skin as well.
Long hair has always been considered epitome of feminine beauty. There are many types of hair extensions, they come in all shapes, sizes, colors and textures these days and there is just as much choice as to the method of applying them. Extensionists should be licensed cosmetologists. Since there are many methods of applying hair extensions (and many types of hair extensions) it's to your advantage to find a professional who has experience in several different methods, and not just one. If interested in hair extensions speak to 2 or 3 professionals about your specific needs and concerns and get a written estimate of what they would do and how much it would cost. New methods will no doubt come to light and it's always wise to get more than one opinion before committing to something that will represent a substantial investment of time and money.
These are the most versatile and cost effective of all types of hair extensions as you can just pop them in and take them out whenever you feel like it. These are great as they open up a whole world of new hair style ideas for women, without the commitment of more permanent extensions.
Electrolysis Hair Removal:
This is the only method approved by the FDA for permanent hair removal. It does require multiple sessions to achieve best possible results, but permanent hair removal isn't 100% guaranteed for everyone because hair grows in different stages: growing, resting and shedding at any given time, multiple sessions are needed to get the hair in the growth phase for electrolysis hair removal to be most effective- just like laser hair removal.
Laser Hair Removal:
Laser hair removal is more than just ''zapping'' unwanted hair. It is a medical procedure that requires training to perform and carries potential risks. Before getting laser hair removal, you should thoroughly check the credentials of the doctor or technician performing the procedure.
A centuries-old technique with origins in the Middle East and South Asia, threading uses cotton thread to remove hair. A threader twists a thread into a loop and rolls it against the skin, moving at lightning speed. The loop acts like a tiny lasso, pulling out hair by the roots. When it's over, your skin is 100% smooth and hair-free. The results last about as long as those from waxing do -- two to four weeks.
There are a number of enhancements designed to add length, thickness and fullness to natural eyelashes. They may be compared to hair extensions for one's eyelashes. They can be separated into two types: temporary and semi-permanent. There is also a medical way of enhancing eyelashes.
This treatment is said to offer a variety of benefits, which may include stress relief, reduction in headaches and migraines, and boost in blood flow stimulation. The increase in blood flow aids in feeding and strengthening the hair follicles, which may cause the hair to grow at a faster rate, as well as aid in the fight to avoid hair loss. The essentials oils used for the therapy also provides an intensive, nourishing treatment for your hair that replenishes hydration, softens, and boosts shine.
This is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for two to eight weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair. Waxing on sensitive body parts must be performed by a licensed cosmetologist or esthetician.
The benefit of a lip injection is the volume it can give the lips and is commonly achieved by products namely: Perlane/Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, Artecoll, Aquamid, Bio-Alcamid, Bovine Collagen, Human Collagen, Particulated Dermis, Porcine Collagen etc. These injections normally last from between 4 months and a year. The cost of lip enhancements vary greatly and it is best to do your research for the services of an experienced injector.
