My 5 top Tips for Happy Feet!

Spring is in the air! It’s been a long winter hasn’t it? After months of our feet being hidden away in boots and wellie our feet are often looking neglected.

Our feet take a lot of wear and tear, we are on them all day and they carry our weight and get us around so it’s very important to look after your feet.

 March is a perfect time to start pampering your feet again so they are ready for flip flop season, hopefully arriving in the next few months!

Here are my top 5 tips for beautiful feet!

  1. 1.      Soak your feet! This can be done in the bath or using a bowl to just soak the feet. (There are also some really fancy foot spas out there if you wanted to treat yourself) I recommend soaking for 10 minutes in warm water, you could add some essential oils in to make it more luxurious if you wanted, I particularly like rose oil for its nourishing benefits. You can push back your cuticles using a hoof stick whilst they are soaking.

  2. 2.      Exfoliate your skin using a foot scrub, work any areas with particularly more build-up of hard skin, usually on the heels of the feet. Next take your feet out of the water and use a pumice stone on any rough areas. Pumice stones always work best when the feet are slightly still damp, always go with the grain of the feet.

  3. 3.      Always trim your toes nails straight across to avoid ingrown toe nails, they should be filled square. Don’t leave them too long as broken and ingrown toe nails are painful! Also be careful not to cut them too short as this can also cause discomfort.

  4. 4.      Moisturise them daily to help with dry, rough or cracked skin. I personally do this just before going to bed so I can let the moisturiser absorb into my feet. If you have cotton socks wear these over your foot cream- your feet will be extra soft and smooth in the morning.  I would recommend Epoch Sole Solution foot treatment as this product also exfoliates dead skin cells build up whilst deeply moisturising the feet.

  5. 5.      Let your feet breathe! Take off your shoes as soon as your get home to let them breathe. If you allow dirt and sweat to stay on your feet longer than necessary you are creating a breeding ground for athlete’s feet and other diseases.  Also I do recommend a break from having your toe nails painted constantly, even if it’s just for a few days, remove your nail polish and apply cuticle oil to your nails to nourish them.

Body Brushing

Give your body an extra boost it needs by body brushing daily!

 After eating and drinking too much over the festive season our bodies can feel tired and sluggish and could do with an extra helping hand!

Body brushing for just 5 minutes a day can help stimulate circulation, break down fatty deposits and will help aid lymphatic drainage and detoxification.

The gentle massaging motion of the bristles also has a beneficial effect on areas of cellulite and is an effective way to eliminate toxins from the body.
My top 5 reasons to body brush daily:

·         Removes dry, dead skin cells
·         Skin appears smoother and more nourished
·         Helps combat cellulite and fatty deposits
·         Increases energy and stimulates the body
·         Feels Great!

To get the most of body brushing it’s important to make sure you are doing it correctly. Use firm, sweeping strokes and always body brush in an upward motion towards the heart as this will encourage the return of blood and encourage lymphatic flow.

The whole process should take 3-5 minutes and for best results I would recommend doing it first thing in the morning as the increased blood flow will help wake you up and energise you for the day.

Body brushing is a cheap and effective way to make you feel great and keep your skin looking radiant.

 Once you make it a habit, you will wonder what took you so long to start in the first place!

Laser Lipo

Laser Lipo!

A wake up call to legs bums and tums!

Laser Lipo is the latest generation technology in effective treatment of cellulite and body-reshaping!
Laser Lipo is a painless, effortless process that can successfully target fats and cellulite in problem areas such as: Thighs, Buttocks and Abdomen. The fats in the cells are broken down and then consumed by stimulated muscular contractions.

There are many benefits of laser lipo:
·         Pain Free Inch Loss
·         Immediate Results
·         Non-surgical, Non Invasive
·         No down time
·         Shaping and Toning the contours
·         Defining muscle shape
·         Cellulite Reduction
·         Soft fat Reduction
·         Slimming
·         Fluid Retention
·         Poor Circulation
·         Bloating
·         Swollen Legs

How does Laser Lipo work? (The science bit!)
Laser Lipo is an innovative piece of technology which combines two of the most effective therapies in the treatment of cellulite and body re-shaping. The stunning results and proven effectiveness in the product of the simultaneous use of electrolypolysis and locally applied chromotherapy.

Electrolypolysis simulataneously causes muscle contraction and immediately burns the fat for energy which the laser rays generate heat and stimulates enzyme activity In the fatty tissues, thereby dispersing the fatty acids into the bloodstream to be used as energy.

The key to the fantastic results achieved with the laser lipo is a special microprocessor that is able to direct the thermal energy to the areas affected by fatty tissues or cellulite. By aiming the light directly into the fatty tissue, the infrared radiation encourages a biological response, which in turn leads to a recovery in cell function and consequent improvement in the micro-circulation.
How often should I have Laser Lipo?

Having laser lipo is a bit like going to the gym, you can’t go just once and expect to see results straight away, a course of 6-12 sessions is recommended in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise regime. I recommend having laser lipo 2-3 times a week to begin with and then once a month for maintenance.

Laser Lipo trearments are available at Diamond Fitness, Worthing's Womens Only Gym in Broadwater

Aromatherapy Associates

I have been a massive fan of Aromatherapy Associates for many years and am so happy that I have finally introduced it to La Belle! Around 10 years ago I received their bath and shower oils gift set and have been obsessed with Aromatherapy Associates ever since!

I cannot have a bath without using their Aromatherapy Associates bath oils, it just isn’t the same and it truly is a little luxury in my life!

I have just got back from two weeks training with Aromatherapy Associates learning all the Massage, Facials, Pregnancy Treatments and Wraps and think I have fallen in love with the brand even more!
Aromatherapy Associates has been around for over 30 years and is a British spa brand, it was actually Princess Diana’s chosen brand and she often wore their Revive Evening bath and shower oil as a perfume.

Their signature treatment is The Ultimate Aromatherapy Experience and this is my personal favourite massage treatment. The massage is bespoke to each individual client, a consultation takes place first to see what symptoms you may be suffering from e.g. sleepless nights and based on the result your therapist will choose you three oils to smell test, the one you are drawn to the most will be used in your massage.

The massage is a very traditional Aromatherapy Massage, as Geraldine Howard and Sue Beechey, the founders of Aromatherapy Associates have a direct link to back to the very beginnings of Modern Aromatherapy.

One of the differences compared to most massages is that we massage both legs at the same time rather than one then another; this is actually a lot more relaxing! We also include a tummy massage, scalp massage and a mini facial. This massage treatment truly does put us head and shoulders above the rest and I couldn't recommend you try it enough!

More about the CACI Non-Surgical Facelift!

CACI Non-Surgical Facelift treatments are now available at La Belle!

CACI works using Mircrocurrent to lift, tone and re-educate muscles back to their original position. These treatments work well on their own or can be combined with our Environ or OXYjet treatments to give outstanding results!

CACI stands for Computer Aided Cosmetology Instrument and was originally used by Dr Thomas Wing of the United States who was a pioneer for microcurrent therapy. Microcurrent was first used in the medical field to treat victims of Bells Palsy and strokes. Microcurrent was first used in the beauty industry in 1992 where it was described as the ‘Non-Surgical Facelift’.

Microcurrent works on improving skin tissue and will encourage healing repair, e.g. such as acne scarring, blemishes, sun damage and dry dehydrated skin.

For best results a course of 10 treatments is recommended with a minimum of 2 a week (3 in the first week if possible)
Its best to leave a day in between treatments e.g. Monday, Wednesday, Friday.
A maintenance treatment is required every 4-6 weeks.

For clients just wanting a one-off treatment for a special occasion the results last upto 5 days.

What is Environ and is it right for me?

What is Environ and is it right for me?

Finding the right facial treatment and products can be a daunting task as there are so many available on the market these days. At La Belle, we carry out a full complementary skin consultation using our vast experience to advise you on which skincare programme is right for you and your skin.

What is Environ?
Environ was created in South Africa by plastic surgeon Dr Des Fernandes who established his range after seeing two of his patients die from melanomas before the age of 23. Dr Des began studying the mechanisms of skin cancer which provided him with a wealth of knowledge about the powerful effects of Vitamins and anti-oxidants on the skin. He created a brilliant range with a focus on using quality Vitamin A and other active ingredients to protect, nourish and maintain a healthy skin to help improve the appearance of lines, sun-damage, problem skin, uneven skin tone and dryness.

Why Environ?
At La Belle, we offer a wide range of Environ Advanced Vitamin Facials which are performed by our highly trained and experienced team of therapists. These scientifically proven facials are suitable for all skin types and are particularly effective at addressing premature ageing, pigmentation and scarring with noticeable effects after just one session.

After an initial skin assessment, vitamins and anti-oxidants are driven deep into the lower layers of the skin using sound waves and small electrical pulses which stimulates collagen to plump and firm the skin.

Our range of treatments available include:
  • o   Advanced Anti-Ageing Vitamin Treatment
  • o   Active Vitamin Treatment
  • o   Hydraboost Treatment
  • o   Environ Cool Peel

We also have wide range of Environ products available which have been recommended and endorsed by the International Institute of Anti-Ageing (IIAA) and are not available to purchase over a beauty counter or online.

Environ treatments and products are highly recommended to combat the effects of sun exposure (sun damage takes 15 years to surface!) but they are also very effective in supporting our skin through the cold winter months which can play havoc with our skin.

Winter light can still cause damage, so it’s important to apply a daily sunscreen in cold weather. Indoor heating systems, cold air and windburn can easily dehydrate the skin as well causing it to become dry and flaky. Drinking plenty of water can counteract this and dissolving dead skin cells with a cosmeceutical exfoliant, such as Environ’s moisturising toner, is better than using rough scrubs.

We hope that this insight into Environ has given you a better understanding of the treatments and products available and the amazing benefits for your complexion. We would be more than happy to answer any of your questions. Just click here to visit our website or pop into the salon on Brighton Road, Worthing to have a chat with us in more detail. We would be delighted to get you booked in for your complementary skin consultation and begin your journey to amazing skin!
