What Your Tension Spots Are Trying To Tell You By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

Stress affects each of us differently. For some, it’s high blood pressure, chronic back pain, or migraines. For others, it’s neck and shoulder pain, stiffness, tightness, or adrenal fatigue.

Stress has so many faces that you may not instantly recognize your tension spot as a result of it. But here’s the interesting part. Researchers estimate that 80% of disease is stress-related.

The reason? We work too much and play too little. When we can’t experience a deep sense of contentment in life, the lack of it is going to show up elsewhere, usually as health problems.

That’s why massage is so beneficial. It works on many different levels to heal both physical and emotional pain. And that wobbly-let-me-just-space-out-for-about-an-hour feeling you get after a massage?

Well, that’s the therapy working on your Central Nervous System to re-program your response to stress and pain. In other words, it’s breaking the old cycle of pain and stress.

Massage lets you experience deep contentment—and that’s the one key ingredient for good health and business success. Yet, we experience it so little.

Those tension spots you keep rubbing and wishing would go away are asking for relief. Just like you are.

Massage gives you back your happy face, releases your body from old patterns of stress and pain, and puts more life in your life.

5 Tips For Getting The Perfect Spray Tan! By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

Getting ready to get your spray tan on? Fabulous! We love it when our clients treasure their skin as much as we do.

To help you get the most natural looking tan ever, we’ve got 5 easy tips for you. Follow these and we promise you’ll be the envy of all your friends.

Lightly exfoliate your body for three days prior. This will get off all the old skin and allow your tan to easily penetrate newer skin for a smooth look.

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Give your skin plenty of moisture prior to the spray tan application. This will allow even saturation of the product. Results? Beautiful and longer lasting!

If you shave your legs, do it the night before your appointment. Shaving right after your tan can shorten the life of it. Same goes for waxing; do it a day or two before your session.

Skip perfume, deodorant, or body sprays. Don’t wear anything that could be a barrier resulting in stains or spots.

Wear loose dark clothing. On the day of the spray tan, make sure to wear old clothing, preferably dark. The spray tan will come off on your clothes. It wouldn’t hurt to wear old pajamas to bed that night, either.

Remember, you don’t want to get near water for 8 hours after the application to allow the tan to set.

You’re all set! Now see if your friends can guess which beach you’ve just been to!

What gives? You’re way past high school but your skin is still stuck in adolescence. Grrrr! It’s enough to make even the most patient person lose their cool.

Acne-prone people are born with four to five times more skin cells than the average person. They also produce more oil (like you didn’t know that, right?) If you’re doing everything you know to do to keep acne at bay, but are still fighting it, here are a few factors that contribute to this pesky problem:

Makeup with the artificial colors FD & C. It can cause breakouts around your mouth and cheeks. Lanolin, mineral oil, petroleum, Isopropyl Myristate and artificial fragrance all irritate your acne-prone skin.

Over-drying your face. This actually causes your skin to produce more oil, and you definitely don’t want that! Keep skin hydrated. We can show you how.

Physical Pressure. Constant cell phone use, resting your hand on your face, and so on, not only exposes your skin to bacteria, but forces the bacteria into your skin.

Stress. It’s not enough that stress causes premature aging but it also increases the hormone that causes acne. Work out, go for a walk, or whatever it takes to get your emotions settled down.

Laundry. Change out your pillowcase twice a week. Make sure that towel you use to dry your face hasn’t seen a week’s worth of activity.

Diet. No, it’s not conclusive that what you eat shows up on your skin, but it makes sense. Get rid of processed foods! Opt for a healthier diet.

Make us a partner in your lifestyle changes with our professional skincare treatments. Together we can get you the skin you want and deserve!

How To Treat Tight, Dry Facial Skin By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

It feels awful, doesn’t it? Tight, dry facial skin is not only uncomfortable, but it’s actually visible!

Known as dehydrated skin, that tight, dry feeling looks dull. Make-up doesn’t perform nearly as well and can accentuate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

You may think of dehydrated skin as a winter problem, but the sun can wreak just as much havoc.

What can you do? Monthly facials work the lymphatic system to remove toxins, stimulate circulation and allow for deeper product penetration. They are the foundation from which all other products and services work.

For your home care, make sure to add a serum for dehydrated skin.

Because your skin is lacking water, it needs a boost of water-attracting molecules like naturally occurring hyaluronic acid.

We can help you there. For your moisturizer, it’s important to understand that thicker is not necessarily more effective.

Moisturizers laden with petroleum and mineral oil simply clog the skin, promoting more dryness and wrinkles.

If your skin is tight and dry, it’s asking for help! Set up a skin consult and we’ll get you and your skin talking nice to each other in no time.

The official name for brittle nails is onychoschizia. But no matter what you call them, they rank at the top of the list for embarrassment and frustration.

Brittle nails are usually soft and thin. They might grow but then they split and peel. Ruling out serious health problems, brittle nails are usually the result of an inadequate diet and/or overexposure to chemicals, excessive hand washing, housecleaning, and so on.

In other words, life.

But there is good news! Opting to care for your hands and nails can reap big rewards. Half of that care comes with regular manicures. Our professionally trained nail technician will clean, file and trim, shape, and buff your nails to a high shine.

Buffing your nails actually promotes blood flow in the nail bed, which promotes healthy nail growth. And that’s what you want!

Our technician will also suggest a nail strengthener to fortify and strengthen your nails. This is very important because it protects fragile nails while rebuilding them.

The other half of nail care comes in the form of nutrition. Nails need plenty of protein, B vitamins and C. Make sure you eat real food that supports building healthy nails and body.

If your nails are causing you problems, we can help. Make an appointment today!
