In the midst of all the holiday preparations, the school plays and the gift buying, as well as in and out of over heated buildings and freezing outside temperatures, our skin, minds and bodies can take a bit of a battering. Not ideal prep for radiating health at Christmas parties! So we have pulled together the ultimate party prep guide to help you relax, give you a party glow and get you party perfect to enjoy the season ahead.
Lift and define
For instant results try the NEW high-tech A-LIFTNano Facial – this WOW treatment, adored by celebrities Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, to name just a few – gives amazing radiance, glow and lift to a tired skin. Harnessing the latest nano-current technology, this reaches deep down to the lower layers , lifting, tightening and re-energising skin cells. It aids lymphatic drainage (wonderful for puffy eyes) and deeply hydrates, giving the skin that “party glow”.
Another secret lift treatment is the EndyMed Pro which uses radio frequency to visibly and instantly lift and define facial contours. It also has a long lasting and cumulative effect on stimulating collagen production and lifting facial features for a more youthful appearance.
Peel it away
Pre party peels are the ideal way to reveal immediately brighter skin. A glycolic peel such as theJan Marini Glycolic Acid FacialPeel sloughs away dead skin, improves the skin texture, hydrates and reduces the appearance of fine lines and gives a real glow to the skin.
TheRetinol WOW peelreally does provide that much sought after wow factor for the skin. Uniquely combining glycolic acid, Retinol, vitamin C and peptides, the peel totally rejuvenates and enhances skin with a strong anti-ageing affect. The glycolic acid removes dead cells and impurities, whilst the Retinol and peptides get to work on regeneration of collagen to provide plumping. The Vitamin C gives an antioxidant boost to protect the skin. Plumped, glowing, radiant party skin is yours!
Hydrate hydrate hydrate
As always, keep drinking water and warm herbal teas throughout the winter months. Hydrated skin looks healthier, is plumper, glows and is a better base for makeup. Use products such as Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 gel that are rich in Hyalyronic Acid, a natural component of the skin which boosts volume and provides the plumping effect associated with youthful skin.
It’s time to slip into your party dress and to ensure that its not a tight squeeze, and that you look and feel your best, it’s important to eliminate any bloating. Adding more vegetables and less refined carbs to your diet a few days before the party, as well as eliminating sugar, will all help to flatten your tummy and reduce water retention.
For an extra boost to eliminate excess fluid, try the Body Ballancer which stimulates lymph drainage which helps limbs feel and look lighter and more defined.
Vela shape III is the celebrity favourite for reducing circumference in the treated area, increasing circulation, and contouring thighs, tummies, arms, saddlebags, waists, arms and backs! Combining three modalities – radio frequency, infrared light, and vacuum, Velashape is clinically proven to temporarily reduce circumference of the area and provide a toning and lifting effect. It also helps increase circulation and relieve aches and pains. Quite an amazing treatment!
Try our brand new 3D Lipo Cavitationwhich gets to work on reducing fat cells, so helping to shape and contour stubborn pockets of fat. Using low frequency ultrasound, 3D Lipocavitation can also be combined with the brand new Cryofuse treatment which accelerates and enhances the effects of the Cavitation to give fat the ultimate heave ho!
Try to incorporate as much exercise into your daily routine as possible over the next few weeks – it’s all going to help increase circulation and promote lymph drainage to reduce fluid retention.
…. And relax …. enjoy the party season!
