Don’t ring in the New Year with dull looking skin. Add some colour to 2018 with our Body Spa Face and Body Bronzing Crème! Achieve that even, shimmery glow without stepping foot in the sun…because sun-kissed skin (the healthy way) is always in.

Step One: Hair Removal
Thick hair will prohibit the even application of the bronzer crème, which is why you’ll want to remove all unwanted hair before application. If you shave, make sure to allow time for your pores to close up first. Applying bronzer crème to freshly shaved legs will only create unsightly dark spots.

Step Two: Exfoliate
Exfoliation is bronzing rule number one. You want to apply bronzer to clean skin that has been thoroughly exfoliated. Dry skin will soak up the bronzer, leaving you with dark patches that look anything but natural. For the body, use the Body Spa Exfoliating Body Scrub. Massage the scrub all over your body, paying close attention to the elbows, knees and ankles. For the face, use an exfoliating cleanser such as the Ageless Total Facial Cleanser, which uses glycolic acid to gently and effectively slough off dead skin cells, allowing for a smooth and even application.

Step Three: Dry Off
This may seem obvious, but make sure your skin is perfectly dry. You don’t want to apply bronzer to damp skin, as this will only cause an uneven application.

Step Four: Apply Bronzer
The Body Spa Face and Body Bronzing Crème is a rich moisturising crème for both the face and body. The colour builds gradually, creating a natural, sunless golden shimmer without the unpleasant smell, streaking, or worse, leaving you looking like an Oompa-Loompa. Apply a small amount of bronzer to the entire body, like you would lotion, starting at the legs and working your way up to your face. Taking special care around the knees, ankles and elbows, and be sure to blend thoroughly.

Step Five: Wash Your Hands
Make sure to thoroughly wash your hands when you’ve finished applying your bronzing crème. Lacing your fingers while washing will ensure all product is removed from between your fingers where product can sometimes be tricky to remove. Dry hands thoroughly and allow for a few minutes to pass, making sure the bronzer ha penetrated evenly all over the skin and is dry. Voila!

Now you are ready to ring in the New Year with a beautiful, golden shimmer.

The Skincare Treatment Victoria’s Secret Models Swear By

oxygen-facial-victorias-secret-1000x600

Trying to keep up with the latest facials is no small task with literally thousands of different techniques, machines, and products on the market, but it seems there are a few seasoned treatments clients continue to rely on, such as  AHA peels and oxygen facials.

The latter is experiencing a new boost thanks to a heavenly set of angels, the Victoria’s Secret models. Whether you’re into fashion or not, the VS models have become a phenomenon of their own and are considered some of the most beautiful women in the world, known for their bouncy hair and flawless, glowy complexions.

As part of their preparation for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this year, which took place last month, the angels revealed their skincare routine included oxygen facials.

The idea behind oxygen facials isn’t new, but has actually been around since the 1940s. Our skin needs oxygen to stay healthy, young and hydrated. Most of us simply aren’t getting enough of it because of the pollutants in the air blocking pure oxygen from ever entering our pores. Our poor skin is just craving some O2 “TLC”.

Just like we need oxygen to survive, our skin needs oxygen to stay youthful, glowing, and free of impurities. Oxygen counteracts the free radicals and impurities that damage our skin over time by causing fine lines, wrinkles and dullness. As there’s no downtime, it’s become the go-to treatment before a big event for many people.

Bottom Line: O2 = The Fountain of Youth.

Want to feel like a VS angel with beautiful, glowing skin? Then it’s time to “Be Lifted” with the Image Skincare O2 LiftThis luxury spa treatment exfoliates and oxygenates the skin while infusing plant-derived stem cells, peptides, and a high concentration of enzymatic botanicals to leave skin glowing and illuminated. By regenerating your skin cells, The O2 Lift is automatically turning back the clock on your face, smoothing your fine lines, clearing out impurities and leaving your skin hydrated and healthy.

Don’t show up to your next occasion looking dull. Get a super model glow with The O2 Lift and save your skin from damaging free radicals and pollutants.

Because who wouldn’t want angel skin?

5 Steps to Fighting Cellulite this Summer

Image

Sometimes no matter how hard we work out and tone our muscles, stubborn cellulite sticks around. If you’re dealing with this problem, you’re not alone. If you’re like most of us and want to minimise the appearance of stubborn cellulite, here are some tips on how to fight cellulite for good:

1. Limit Salt Intake
The sodium in salt is not your friend when it comes to reducing cellulite appearance. Sodium causes your body to retain fluid, which in turn highlights those dimples on the back of your thighs. After a week of cutting out most of the salt in your diet you should see some results.
2. Cut Back on Processed Foods
Processed or “junk” foods not only lead to weight gain but they swamp your body with toxins. Processed foods also contain a higher amount of sodium and sugar, both of which promote cellulite.
3. Drink Plenty of Water
Hydration is so important for your overall health and the health of your skin. We’ll say it again and again. Drink plenty of water throughout the day, and you’ll be flushing sodium and toxins out of your body before they have a chance to increase the appearance of your cellulite.
4. Sweat It Out
A regular exercise routine is not only going to prevent weight gain, but it will also work to flush some of the existing fat from your body.
5. Use Cell.U.Lift
To complement your cellulite fighting efforts, use a body firming crème like Cell.U.Lift Firming Body Creme twice per day. It’s formulated to fight skin laxity on a cellular level and has been shown to produce tighter and firmer looking skin with a smooth, hydrated surface.
