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!

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.
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!

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!
