Just because we cannot leave the shores of New Zealand now, does not mean that you do not deserve to treat yourself. Many of us have missed out on a local or overseas holiday this year due to the COVID situation, but how about treating yourself to some YOU time.
It is so good for the soul and our well-being to have things to look forward to. It is important to plan and book yourself some time out pampering, this gives you luxuries to look forward too. This could be a facial, massage, henna tinting, threading, waxing, spray tan, pedicure, manicure, hair treatment or a hair style make over. This week I have written on our popular hair and beauty services.
There is nothing quite like the feeling when someone notices a new haircut or colour and tells you it “LOOKS AMAZING”. Changing your hairstyle can do loads for your confidence. Just like our clothes, our hair tells a story about ourselves. What our hairstyle says about us is a direct reflection of our personal style and personality. By changing your look, you can become whoever you want to be and feel confident in who you are. Let your hairstyle scream to the world I am visible, vibrant, and vivacious. I am ME!
The benefits of having a facial treatment are many including stress reduction, cleanse the skin and remove black heads and whiteheads, skin exfoliation, reduce acne, tighten your skin and reduce eye bags and dark circles, improve blood circulation, reduce signs of stress and provide a more even skin tone.
Having regular massages or even one now and then to treat yourself will reduce muscle tension, improve circulation, increased joint mobility and flexibility, reduce stress hormone anxiety and depression, heighten mental alertness, improved skin tone and relaxation.
Manicures can be very uplifting especially when applying your favourite shade of nail polish or gel polish (which offers instant dry time and long-lasting colour). Manicures improve the overall health and appearance of hands and nails, improving blood circulation and joint mobility prevent hang nails from popping up, reduce the amount of dry skin build up, destress and have pamper ME time.
Pedicures have many of the same benefits as manicure like stimulating circulation, relieve tension, helps with lymphatic and blood flow, calluses controlled while also removing dry skin, nails trimmed, skin exfoliated and moisturised which all help to promote new cell growth so your feet are nice and soft with good nail health and appearance…and of course the feel good and relaxation factor and beautifully painted nails.
Threading is a method of hair removal, most popularly used on the facial area and brows, it is safe, no chemicals involved, less pain than other hair removal methods, with instant hair removal it is accurate and precise, lasts longer and maintenance is infrequent and fast.
Henna Brows is a great eye enhancement treatment to team up with eyebrow threading shaping. Henna is 100% pure and natural probably the safest brow colour you are ever going to find, it covers up grey hairs and gaps in your brows and makes the brows look denser and more refined, not to forget, it really enhances your eyes.
Waxing is the perfect way to remove unwanted hair, waxing lasts longer than shaving because it pulls the hair from the roots, no cuts or nicks that can leave you with scars, shaving can cause rashes on sensitive skin, for many, waxing makes the hair grow slower and finer, waxing produces smoother results because hair is pulled from the root and will make your skin feel smoother longer without feeling itchy. Contrary to popular belief, waxing is not always painful. if you do it right, it is almost pain-free, waxing is fast and convenient, skin is less susceptible to irritations associated with shaving. Just silky-smooth skin.
Finish your make over pamper with a spray tan this is another uplifting beauty service, perfect for balls, weddings or simply just feel good every day, it gives the skin a beautiful, healthy, sporty and all over glow, while also helping to help hide visible cellulite and blend skin blemished making you look beautiful and feel confident.
