Do’s & Don’ts of Getting A Brazilian By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

Got questions about getting a Brazilian? Great! We’ve got answers. Here’s our list of what to do before and after your Brazilian wax.

Before Your Brazilian:
• DO let the hair grow ¼ to ½ an inch—no longer! This is the ideal length for less pain and a quicker wax session.

• DO help prevent ingrown hairs by gently exfoliating the area several days before your appointment.

• DO be very clean. Make sure you shower the day of your wax to help prevent infection. You’ll feel more comfortable and so will your wax technician.

• DO take an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen a half-hour beforehand, if you’re very sensitive.

• DON’T schedule your appointment for about a week before or during your period, you’ll be much more sensitive, causing more pain.

• DON’T apply any creams or lotions before your wax. You’ll get better results if your skin is dry.

After your Brazilian:
• DO soothe the area with cool compresses once you get home.

• DO wash the area twice daily if you are prone to developing red bumps or ingrown hairs. Apply an over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream for a few days after your wax.

• If you develop bumps, DON’T ever pick or squeeze them! This could lead to scarring. DO apply hydrocortisone and benzoyl peroxide gel, pads or wash (all available in your pharmacy without a prescription).

• DON’T wear tight underwear or clothing in synthetic materials to prevent irritation. It’s best to stick to natural fabrics that breathe.

Ask anybody with combination skin, it can be a nightmare! With both oily and dry conditions, you really have to treat both for your skin to be happy. That’s not as hard as it sounds, thankfully.

Your skin can be dry or normal in some areas and oily in others, such as the T-zone (nose, forehead, and chin). Many people have this type. It may need slightly different care in different areas.

Combination skin can have:

  • Pores that look larger than normal, because they’re more open
  • Blackheads
  • Shiny skin

Our skincare products are designed for all skin types. And that means we can effectively treat combination skin without a lot of hassle. Set up a skin consult and share with us your challenges. We’ll tailor a home care program just for you.

Also consider these tips for taming combination skin. You might find them surprising. Be sure to bring your questions with you to your consult:

• Exfoliate regularly. This will reduce oil production, clear pores and remove drier, flaky skin. And your make-up will perform better, too! But how much exfoliating do you need? Once we see your skin and its condition, we can guide you there.

• Use a toner. And no, we aren’t talking Sea Breeze or benzoyl peroxide. These products strip your skin. Go with a toner that has real science behind it like our line. Our toners have anti-inflammatory agents, vitamin C and soothing ingredients that nourish and balance combination skin.

• Embrace oils. Surprised? Your skin is composed of oil and its constantly seeking to balance oil production properly. Using “oil free” products just encourage your skin to rush in and make more, as well as blemishes and breakouts. Use a high end oil which has vitamin E and essential fatty acids on the drier areas of your skin. Again, we can counsel you further on this.

• Use an all natural mineral make-up line. This will keep the dry and oily parts of your skin in harmony.

Be patient. It may take three months for changes to occur. However, we have other treatments that can cut that waiting period down dramatically. Be sure to ask us about them!

Is Your Skin The Same Age As You? By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

No woman wants to look her age. And certainly no woman wants to look older than her age, but sometimes it happens.

It’s frustrating, isn’t it? Of course genetics is a major influence, but even so, you can combat those pesky genes your ancestors gave you.

How? It all starts with pH. We’re not going to get technical, we promise. So here’s the bottom line. When the pH of your skin is faulty it can create premature aging. That means your face can feel tight and dry, like you never cleaned it, or worse, you develop acne.

Either way, your skin is too alkaline. That means:

• It can be drier and more brittle

• Your skin is more susceptible to sun damage because the barrier has been weakened

• You develop more fine lines and crow’s feet (British Journal of Dermatology)

• Your skin can become oilier

When skin is too alkaline, it takes 14 hours for it to return to normal. Unfortunately, you’ve already re-applied the offending products so the damage never gets repaired.

What can you do? Even if you think your skincare is fine, but you’re not happy with your looks, allow us to give you a professional skin analysis. And no, we’re not talking about the department store kind of “analysis.”

This is the real deal. One of our highly trained aestheticians talks to you about your lifestyle, your current regimen, and any medical conditions you may have. (Some medical conditions and medications can cause skin challenges.)

Then she will look beneath the surface of your skin to get a complete picture, discussing with you what she finds and recommending the right products for your skin type.

And the best part? You’ll feel a difference almost immediately, with visible results appearing within a week. We guarantee it! There’s no need to look your age or older. Schedule your complimentary consult today!

Don Verhulst, MD has studied and practiced the use of natural alternatives and the effects of nutrition for over 20 years. His philosophy is to provide nutritionally valuable, concentrated good foods for the skin and body.

When Dr. Don heard about Body Sculpting Cellulite and Colon Therapy he was highly skeptical of its true abilities. As a scientist, he saw it as a nothing more than a ”gimmick.”

That is, until he tried it himself. In one 60-minute session he lost 2 ¼ inches on the various areas of his body and 1 inch on his abdomen. The doctor was floored!

That’s when he began to research the wrap’s ingredients. Here’s what he found:

• This highly unusual wrap provides the ability to feed your skin nutrients needed for natural skin renewal. (You look younger)

• It allows cell turnover to occur uninterrupted, enhancing and speeding up the process (You look younger and more toned)

• The ingredients keep toxins from entering your body while removing existing toxins (You feel more energetic)

• It targets fat cells of inflamed fatty tissue, breaking them down, decreasing inflammation and increasing detoxification (You slim down and feel healthier)

• You have less cellulite, less fine lines and wrinkles and less saggy skin (You love how you look)

Dr. Don had to admit that his tape measure “didn’t lie.” And yours won’t either! Enjoy renewed confidence in your contoured body as well as more energy with Body Sculpting Cellulite and Colon Therapy.

The Anti-Aging Ingredient More Important Than Sunscreen

The Anti-Aging Ingredient More Important Than Sunscreen

For the last few decades, scientists have been preaching to us to wear sunscreen to look younger.

New studies show: they were wrong! And we were stunned. Here’s what we learned about the latest evidence regarding sun damage.

An SPF isn’t enough to protect you from sun damage. Yes, they block UVA and UVB rays, but those rays only account for 7% of solar energy.

Now for the really interesting part:

New research finds that infrared radiation, which makes up 54% of solar energy, also causes aging AND may be worse than UV rays!

It seems that infrared radiation penetrates deeper than UV rays, producing those nasty free radicals that not only age you but also wreck your skin.

Now What?
So do you give up sunscreen? No way! We’ve always told you how important an antioxidant serum is to your overall skin care.

Now science is backing us up. In fact, wearing an antioxidant serum that has a combination of vitamins C, E, and ferulic acid, a naturally occurring antioxidant and sunscreen, is more important than sunscreen!

This antioxidant cocktail provides the missing link in preventing free radicals from robbing your skin of health and youth.

Wear the antioxidant serum under your sunscreen. Just make sure your sunscreen contains zinc and titanium dioxide, not Avobenzone and Octinoxate, which promote wrinkles!
