Celebrity Beauty Myths Busted! By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

The next time you’re beating yourself up because you don’t look as gorgeous as your favorite actress, you might want to keep this in mind.

These women have a real investment in perpetuating their flawless image. Here are a few of the myths you’ve heard and believed.

“I’m not wearing any make-up.” Even Lady Gaga owned up on this one. “There’s this idea that it’s all natural, but everything has been staged to look natural,” she said. “Don’t you think that what’s on the cover of a magazine is quite artificial?”

“I was born with thick, fast-growing hair.” Hmmm. Remember when Katie Holmes got tired of her chic bob? Within a matter of weeks, she was sporting longer locks. That’s pretty hard to do since hair grows at the rate of half an inch per month. Most certainly she was wearing hair extensions.

“I was in a bikini six weeks after having a baby.” If you hire a trainer and work out hard for one to three hours daily, you can most certainly achieve this. Otherwise, it takes about eight months to a year.

Not many of us can afford to bend time to suit our wishes. Yet, models and movie stars are paid to create the fantasy of quick results minus the hard work that goes along with achieving those results.

So what’s our point with all this? Good health and beauty are never a free ride. Work with your aesthetician to steadily achieve the results you want.

That’s always the best path to take anyway. Be glad you don’t have the pressure of perfection weighing down on you!

Hot Water And Skin Moisture By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

Everyone loves to take their time soaking up and relaxing in a hot bath. However, those with dry skin should beware. Hot water depletes your body’s moisture, causing dryness and itchiness.

It’s best to use warm water then pat dry when you get out of the shower or tub. Then apply body lotion or oil to seal in moisture. And, of course, don’t forget your facial moisturizer.

For additional all over moisturizing, come in for one of our fabulous body treatments. Think of them as a facial for your whole bod! You won’t believe the long lasting difference in your skin and you’ll never miss the hot water.

We once thought that solariums were the “safe” alternative to baking in the sun. Now we know better. Malignant melanoma, the least common but most deadly form of skin cancer, is an established risk factor with tanning beds.But now it seems that this dangerous method for getting an even, bronzed glow also increases the risk of non-melanoma cancers. You can read it about it here.

That’s why we’re glad to see so many of our clients turning away from artificial and sun baking. Our safe, natural spray tan has no:

  •  Deadly chemicals
  •  Alcohols
  •  Perfumes
  •  Oils
  •  Nasty parabens

In fact, St. Tropez purifies their own water to ensure only the purest products ever touch your skin!

It’s a lovely, safe way to get just the right amount of golden glow you want without the worry. Sweet!

Sometimes clients will tell us they think they have rosacea because their skin is red and flushes easily. But when we take a closer look, we find another common culprit, couperose, or broken capillaries.

There are several reasons capillaries may weaken and break. Heredity is one.
Some of us were just born with naturally thin, weak skin, which of course, includes the capillary walls of your face.

Extremes in temperatures can increase the likelihood of developing couperose. With constant exposure, the skin thins, weakening capillary walls.

Another factor is aggressive over exfoliation of the skin. No, you won’t get better results if you scrub harder! You’ll just create a spidery network of broken capillaries across your beautiful face.

What can you do about couperose? We have skincare that targets this exact problem, and complementary hydrating treatments that combat redness and lock in moisture.

If you’re ready to tame your red, irritated skin, we can help get you there.

You’ve been working hard and you’re just plain tired. Now the comfort of your bed is calling to you. ZZZZZZZZ…

Before you fall into dreamland, please do these four simple, quick steps. You can do them in under 5 minutes!

Get rid of the day’s make-up, pollution, dirt and stress—wash your face. But please use the cleanser that’s right for your skin.

Avoiding this one step grinds make-up into your skin, causing breakouts, stretching pores, and aging you.

Add a Vitamin A product. Over time, collagen production in your skin decreases. If it didn’t, you would never get a wrinkle! Your pores would stay small, you’d never get a scar, and your skin would stay tight.

Just take a quick 10 seconds and apply. It helps to stimulate collagen production and slow down Father Time.

Lastly, dot on our anti-aging eye crème. Your eye area has the thinnest skin on your body. You must protect it! Eye cremes have vitamins that repair skin and lighten dark circles.

Apply moisturizer and hit the hay! All done in under 5 minutes.

Now you’ll sleep better!
