Beauty SOS? Time to call the experts
Everyone’s got a beauty dilemma they can’t solve themselves. For me, it’s curling my hair. But that’s a whole other story…
We’ve rounded up a few common beauty problems that we should possibly be leaving to those in the know, because sometimes DIY is simply a little dangerous or just doesn’t cut it. Yep, help is always at hand, beauties, and we suggest you embrace it!
BEAUTY ISSUE: your wrinkles are becoming more prominent, or your problem acne just won’t clear up.
PROFESSIONAL TREATMENT: OMNILUX. This all-healing treatment helps to rejuvenate ageing and congested skin using different colours and wavelengths of light. Aestheticians can specifically target acne bacteria (OMNILUX blue), uneven skin-tone (OMNILUX plus) and even reduce wrinkles (OMNILUX revive), depending on your needs. How? Each coloured LED treatment head works with the body's own natural processes to counteract the effects of ageing and promote healing.
BEAUTY ISSUE: you’re rubbish at applying fake tan.
PROFESSIONAL TREATMENT: Naked Tan spray tan. No matter how good you think you are at applying fake tan, there’s barely any risk of orange palms, blotchy legs and missed body parts when you leave it to the professionals. Bonus: the Naked Tan formula is made from natural tanning ingredients, and contains aloe vera to hydrate the skin.
BEAUTY ISSUE: you’ve neglected your back (it is hard to reach, after all!), and your skin needs attention. ”¨
PROFESSIONAL TREATMENT: Ella Bache’s Back Detox Treatment. This 45-minute treatment consists of a back exfoliation, massage and detoxifying mask, which will not only eliminate toxins but also leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated.
BEAUTY ISSUE: you want a slimmer physique with less cellulite, but are too lazy to exercise.
PROFESSIONAL TREATMENT: Guinot techniSPA Double Slimming Treatment. With three sessions a week over four consecutive weeks, this stimulating skin treatment can increase skin firmness by a massive 35% and help you lose centimetres around the thighs. It works by breaking down the cell structure of cellulite, and then builds muscle tissue for firmer skin. Goodbye, orange-peel legs!
