Stress Free Weekend With Spa

Spa treatments are those pampering services rendered by professional therapists in a relaxing environment of a facility. Clients frequent this place mainly to get their body immersed in a relaxing experience through massages, thermal treatments, aromatherapy, hydrotherapy and body cleansing procedures. After the full session of any spa treatment, the client will eventually feel relaxed and sound balanced-the quality of being that is very much unlike their workaholic self.

Contrary to the popular belief, spa treatments are not basically for aesthetic purposes. In fact, the history of spa therapies can be traced back to ancient civilizations that use alternative medicine to cure several forms of illness in humans. This is especially true with massages and hydrotherapy. They are initially intended to provide relief to stressed joints and even mental stress.

Perhaps the most popular spa service these days is the massage therapy. Without a doubt, it has soothed a number of stressed clients with just a few strokes of the therapist’s hands. The therapy normally involves the kneading of the muscles in order to release the tensions

Effects Pollution for Looks

Everyone is worried about what modern technology is doing to us. This is especially true in cities, where car exhaust, industries and waste disposal facilities spew pollutants into the air.

Of you live or work in a city, the dirt you notice settling on your skin, hair and clothes may make you wonder about the contamination you can’t see. There’s evidence that city pollution can affect health – and that’s of primary concern to scientists and lay people alike. Many individuals also worry about the impact of environmental ills on appearance. But, surprisingly, scant research has been done on the subject. Until scientists focus on the effects of bad air and water on looks, the jury remains out. In the interim, it’s wise to adopt some defensive beauty techniques of your own.

THE CITY AND YOUR FACE

Pollution settles on the skin almost the same way it settles on the windshield of a car. Some fairly potent acids in the atmosphere of large cities may act like a chemical peel on

Outdoor Spas

Spas come in a wide range of sizes. There are small, intimate spas that are designed for one person or a couple to enjoy privacy on a lovely night. You can opt for large spas that can accommodate a number of people. These can be great to use during gatherings. As a consumer, you should decide on the size of the spa based on how it will be used.

Another factor that can influence your decision is your preference for a regular hot tub or one with several features, such as rotating jets and massage devices. You have the choice on the number of jets and where to locate them. There are some models that let you choose even the type of seating for the spa. Other models come with built-in lights, among other accessories. Models that have extra features will definitely be more expensive.

Be Relax and Unwind With Luxury Spa

Planning your spa day. A typical day spa package might include a full body massage, a facial and nail care, which could cost around $400 or more, not including lunch or the 15 -20% gratuity. But, there are ways to have a full day at the spa while spending much less. Did you know that most full service spas have jacuzzi, saunas and steams rooms available for use by guests with a minimum treatment requirement? Let’s say you book one service for $75-150, and spend the rest of the day in the hot tub, steam room and sauna. You can even relax in a quiet room and read a book. Some spas rather than having a minimum treatment requirement may just charge a minimum fee for visitors to use the spa only. Verify the minimum treatment and spa use only policy with the spa you are interested in visiting.

When to go? Many spas offer discounts and promotions for holidays such as Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day. These are the busiest times, so it is best to book during the week and during the day if you can. Some spas also offer special discount membership programs that

Get Perfect Tan Safely

Shop the right sunscreen

There are numerous sunscreen products available out there in form of lotion, gel, and spray. You need to choose your sunblock smartly to ensure effective sun protection. Sunscreen with SPF30 filters 97% of UVB rays, while products with SPF50 filter 98% of UVB rays. For dark Indian skin, SPF15 makes a right choice. In addition to SPF value, look for the phrase ‘broad-spectrum’ while selecting your sunscreen product. We highly recommend Day-Light Protection Sun Screen SPF 50 by Neogen Dermalogy and Sun Protection Eye Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 34 Sunscreen by Shiseido.

Don’t over do

You need not spend hours and hours at a poolside or at a beach to get that dark brown tan. Consistent exposure to the sun in peak hours, mostly between 10 am and 4 pm, can damage your skin and dehydrate your body. You should not spend more than 2-3 hours in the sun. Restricting your tanning time will help you get a beautiful tan without raising the risk of UV damage.

While out in the sun, make sure you turn your body at every 15-30 minutes or keep moving around

Skincare Is Not Just for Face

Skincare for the Body

Most skincare products are either used on the face or the body. This is because the facial complexion usually has different needs than the rest of the skin. For example, a rich, hydrating formula that will smooth those rough patches on the feet will probably clog pores and result in breakouts on the face. By the same token, ingredients used to tighten skin and stimulate collagen production on the face won’t provide much benefit on the legs and arms. You will more than likely need separate skincare product for your face and the rest of your body.

What to Look for in Body Skincare

Skincare products for the rest of your body should serve a dual purpose; hydrating dry skin and protecting it from further damage. A moisturizer with an SPF offers both benefits in a single formula, allowing for greatest convenience and value.

However, body skincare can also offer other advantages, such as diminishing the look of cellulite and stretch marks, or tightening flabby skin on problem areas like the stomach and buttocks. Like your facial skincare, look for products that address your specific needs and skin type.

Essential Vitamins For Beautiful Body

Vitamins are substances that are not produced directly within the body but yet are necessary for its proper function. Different organisms require different vitamins, and the function of specific vitamins may vary from organism to organism. Humans require 13 different vitamins, all of which can be gotten from the foods that we eat. We require very small amounts of vitamins for the body to function correctly.

There are 2 different types of vitamins – those that are fat-soluble and those that are water-soluble. Water-soluble vitamins, such as vitamins B (most of the 8 types of B vitamins) and C, are easily dissolved in water and pass through the human body quickly, with anything not used immediately by the body excreted via urine. Fat-soluble vitamins are stored by the body for up to several months and used when needed. Vitamins A, D, E and K are all fat-soluble vitamins.

Throughout history, before the discovery of vitamins, different societies have been aware of the connection between our health and the foods that we eat. A great and often-cited example is the problem of scurvy aboard sailing vessels during the 1700’s and before. We now know that scurvy is

You can place the wrap on problem areas such as your stomach, back, arms, thighs, and chin/neck. However, there is a separate applicator for your face. It is recommended that you consume a lot of water (at least half of your body weight in ounces) while the wrap is on and during the 72 hours that follow. You also are not to eat while using the wrap.

The wrap detoxifies fat cells in your body, essentially causing them to shrink and expel the toxins. Most women claim to have lost two to ten inches with just one application. However, physicians warn that results should be viewed only as temporary and state that each body will react differently to the treatment. One woman reported no results, but was told that this was due to her medical history and the medication she currently was taking for her thyroid condition.

Useful Tricks Remove Stretch Marks

No matter which cream you choose, there is one important principle you need to consider. In order to remove those unattractive marks naturally you have to take preventive steps ahead of time.

Tummy Tuck

Generally who undergoes a tummy tuck surgery is quite often a woman who has given birth and developed stretch marks and saggy or loose skin on her abdomen. Apart from this situation, other women choose this surgery if they have gone through a caesarean section, or those who may have scars on their lower abdomen.

Others who frequently reap benefits from it are those who have lost a lot of body weight. Due to their huge weight-loss, these individuals are usually left with excessive folds of saggy skin on their stomach region. This may cause depression among people who end up in such a situation and therefore this surgery is an ideal solution for this situation. It also helps in boosting confidence of people and stops them from regaining their lost weight.

A tummy tuck scar commonly goes horizontally from hip to hip above the pubic area.

Bogus Beauty Treatments

Beauty queen and former Elvis love Priscilla Presley, now 62, famously made headlines when she visited a doctor who injected her with “low-grade silicon” he had smuggled into the US. It is thought the silicon was fabricated to grease auto parts, not plump up aging women’s faces.

However, they are also often the first to discover that the treatments don’t really work, or that the small benefit they get is not worth the hefty price tag. Here are a few that have either extremely temporary benefits, or none at all…

Well, Hollywood actresses jumping on the oxygen facial bandwagon say yes; scientists say no.

Disaster Beauty Spa Experience

The problems with this place started even before I hopped in my car. There were a couple of not too favorable reviews which I had not paid that much attention to (I was hooked by their photos) and when I called to book my appointment I was advised by the curt receptionist that all appointments require a mandatory initial consult of $200.

Huh? Nothing on their website mentioned anything about having to first book a consult before a treatment. “The fee is halved if you book your treatment immediately after – the owner is the best skin guru in the state” she reassured me.

OK, fair enough, but then make sure your website carries a consistent message. Not feeling warm and fuzzy about this place so far, I still went ahead and booked the appointment.

When I arrived, the spa was in a surprising location – not quite the high end location they made out to be on their website. The spa itself felt cramped and over cluttered to me. Another red flag.

I was ushered into a shoebox sized room surrounded by glaring lights and mirrors (make no mistake you could see every
