Instant Redness Reducers By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005
Redness to the skin comes in many forms. Rosacea, acne, flushing, redness resulting from sun damage or general irritation are just some of the challenges women face.
What can you do to reduce redness? Here are a few tips:
Facials & Skin Care: Excessively dry skin causes the endings in your dermis to become vulnerable to irritants, exacerbating the problem.
Get facials specifically designed to reduce redness. Choose moisturizers with phospholipids (we can help you there) and hyaluronic acid. Both are excellent for plumping up the skin and calming down redness.
Hyaluronic acid can hold up to one thousand times its weight in water. Just think of what it can do for your skin!
Cancel Redness With Color: Use a concealer that has a yellow or green tint to cancel out the redness. Make sure your foundation has a yellow base to help further even out your skin tone for a flawless look.
Add Redness Reducing Foods & Spices: Cucumber, ginger, licorice root extract, rose extract, turmeric and white tea extract are all excellent for fighting redness and bolstering the skin’s resistance to irritation.
Include whole foods, especially leafy green vegetables and fish. Sugar is especially bad for spiking inflammation. So cut it back then cut it out!

Okay, we admit it. This is the time of year when aestheticians freak out a bit. During the winter months, we can usually keep it together.
But now? Not so much. Everywhere we look we see women and men frying their skin in the name of…looking good.
Hip. Chic. Cool. Whatever.
And it doesn’t matter what we say, what statistics we quote, some humans feel the insane urge to bake like a potato in the sun.
So be it.
That’s why this year we’re simply going to answer the two skin questions we hear the most this time of year.
“What are these brown spots on my hands and face? They seem like they’re worse. How do I get rid of them?’
These spots go by various common names, age spots, liver spots, sunspots and more. They are mainly caused by overexposure to the sun. The ultraviolet light causes overstimulation of melanocyte cells, and they lump together and show up as age spots.
Age spots seem to get worse in the summer. Actually, just more of their friends show up to the party. The more you see, the more evidence of sun damage.
What can you do? Keep your skin protected with sunscreen to limit overexposure to the sun. Next, consider laser or IPL to fade out those little guys.
But remember, with continued over exposure to the sun, age spots will come back and bring their friends.
“My cheeks are reddish and I don’t have rosacea or a sunburn. What’s going on?”
Usually these are broken capillaries and the causes are many, chief among them is overexposure to the sun. Extremes in temperatures spread
these tired, worn out capillaries, as does aggressive over-exfoliation.
Remember to keep your skin protected with a sunscreen at all times to reduce spreading them. Wear a hat! Again, laser or IPL are excellent choices of treatment.
There you have it, the two biggest questions about conditions involving skin. And wouldn’t you know it both conditions involve overexposure to the sun. Just saying.

What To Ask Before Getting Waxed By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005
Getting a Brazilian wax for the first time can be scary. You heard about other women’s bad experiences. You’ve seen how movies use waxing as a topic for comedy. It’s no wonder you have to think twice, thrice, even more times to seriously consider getting it done.
So, the best way to go about this is to get accurate information before you schedule your appointment.
And this is where we come in.
In order to get a good and non-frightening experience at a waxing salon, it’s best to ask a few questions to put your mind at ease.
Ask about the technician’s qualifications. Where did she get her training? How long has she been doing Brazilians? Does she have any testimonials?
Ask about the type of wax used. The best to use for Brazilians is a hard wax. Make sure the wax adheres only to the hair, not to the skin. It would be a lot more painful otherwise.
Ask about hygienic practices. What is used to prevent the spread of bacteria, fungi, and the like? How do they ensure your health safety and that of the technician? Is everything disposable?
Ask about topical pain relief. Do they have a topical to apply to reduce pain? Do they have recommendations for reducing pain before you get to your appointment?
Any reputable spa will welcome these questions and encourage more. We sure do!
You Want To Wear Mascara BUT… By Beauty Salon Great Missenden Call Us On 01494 865005
You Want To Wear Mascara BUT… By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005
Wearing mascara can really make your eyes pop. But unfortunately for some women, they can’t.
There are several reasons why some women can’t wear mascara. They may be allergic, they may not have the time to apply makeup, and the list goes on.
So if you don’t wear mascara but would really like to, say hello to the mascara alternative: eyelash tinting.
An all vegetable dye, applied every 3-5 weeks in 30 minutes or less. You walk in with barely noticeable eyelashes; and you walk out with well-defined lashes that have the beauty and polish of mascara…but without the hassle.
There are a lot of advantages that you can get from having your lashes tinted. You can choose from the various colour options we have to further enhance the colour of your eyes. It’s waterproof. And best of all, you won’t have to fight with eye make-up remover to get it off at night. Lash tinting goes to bed with you!
We highly recommend that you get a patch test 24-48 hours before your first application just to be sure you have no negative reaction toward the dye. We realize it’s quite unlikely, but we think it’s a good policy.
Dark lashes, blonde lashes, fat lashes and skinny ones all benefit from the beauty enhancing effects of lash tinting.
