Look Beautiful This Christmas!

My Top five must have Christmas Beauty Treatments!

The Christmas party season is upon us and everyone wants to look and feel their best! I have chosen my top 5 beauty treatments that will guarantee to turn heads at every Christmas party!
Number One: Eyelash Extensions
Eyelash extensions are a great way to add length and thickness to your natural lashes without the hassle of wearing mascara or trying to stick fake lashes on before a night out! Eyelash extensions are attached to each individual natural eyelash and come in different lengths and thicknesses so you can have them as natural or as glamorous as you would like. They are completely hassle free and will see you all the way through the Christmas party season.

Number two: Shellac manicure
Shellac is the latest nail treatment that everyone is taking about! Shellac is a hybrid nail polish that lasts up to two weeks without chipping, smudging and best of all no drying time! Great for women on the go, Shellac comes in a variety of colours and you can even have a French polish.

Number Three: Spray tan
Feeling a bit pale and pasty this winter? A spray tan will give you a healthy sun kissed glow without UV exposure.  Not only does a tan makes you look and feel slimmer but it can also help disguise stretch marks and cellulite, giving you more confidence to look and feel fabulous in that Christmas party dress.

Number Four: Oxygen facials
The must have facial before any special occasion. Oxygen facials are the perfect rejuvenation treatment for ageing skin. Using oxygen pressure, active ingredients are ‘shot’ into the lower levels of skin; this amplifies the collagen within the skin, plumping out fine lines and wrinkles.  You will notice an instant result after one treatment but the facial will continue to last for up to a month after, stimulating cell regeneration for a smoother, softer complexion.

Number Five: Minx toes
Extend fashion to your toes with minx nail designs. Minx is a flexible film that is adhered to each nail using a heat source and can last up to 8 weeks. No chips, smudges or drying time,  Minx comes in a variety of different colours and patterns including Pokka dot, cheetah and snake skin, so whatever your style get noticed with the very latest celebrity look!

Body Brushing

Give your body an extra boost that is deserves by Body Brushing daily. Dry body brushing is often done in beauty salons as part of detoxifying or slimming treatments and is one of the best and ways to look after your skin. Body brushing is quick and easy and only requires 5 minutes of your time every morning and the results are amazing!
Dry body brushing is not only one of the quickest and cheapest ways of exfoliating your skin on a regular basis but will also help to stimulate circulation, break down fatty deposits and will aid lymphatic drainage and detoxification. The gentle massaging motion of the bristles has a beneficial effect on areas of cellulite, and is an effective way to eliminate toxins from the body. Most of us can’t afford to have luxury spa treatments every week so body brushing is a great way of creating similar effects at home.
Reasons to Body Brush:
• Removes dry, dead skin cells
• Results in smooth, nourished skin
• 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 starting with the feet and working you way up the legs. Always body brush in an upwards motion towards the heart as this will encourage the return of blood and encourage lymphatic flow. Pay particular attention to cellulite-prone areas like your thighs. Brush your abdomen with a circular clock wise motion. Brush your arms with an upward motion, moving towards your heart. The whole process should take 3-5 minutes. For best results body brush first thing in the morning, when the increased blood flow will help wake you up.
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!
