Removes stubborn hairs: LYCON’s unique shrink wrapping technology removes short and stubborn hair from the root.

Virtually Pain Free:  LYCON’s unique Pre Waxing Oil is applied prior to hot waxing.  This prevents the wax sticking to the skin, making your waxing experience less painful (up to 50% less pain than other brands on the market).

Suitable for sensitive skin:  Pre Wax Oil forms a barrier between the wax and the skin allowing LYCONs’ low temperature wax to be re-applied on the same area without causing skin irritation.

Finer Hair Re-growth:  LYCON removes hairs from the root encouraging finer, softer hair re-growth and will achieve longer lasting results.

Free from Ingrown Hairs:  LYCON’s super pliable and gentle wax removes the shortest hair from the root.  This eliminates ingrown hairs which can be caused by the hair breaking at skin level.

Using either LYCON’s Aloe Vera Gel Wax or LYCOJet Desert Rose, the treatment is  followed by LYCON’s uniquely formulated Ingrown X-IT Solution spray. This helps to minimise the appearance and discomfort of Ingrowing Hairs, by soothing angry looking red spots whilst promoting skin healing (available for retail at £16). The skin is then given a soothing application with LYCON’s Tea Tree Soothe/ This light, moisturising, anti-bacterial and soothing lotion is pleasantly scented and helps to calm the skin and closes the pores after waxing.

Have the LYCON complete caring “Beach Ready” treatment system, the only wax worth getting undressed for!

TBG ‘Woogle’ – Skin Ageing: 10 Tips to Protect Your Skin

Anti Ageing

Summer is officially here, avoid skin ageing by protecting your skin!

That means it’s time to pack up those sweaters, clean the clutter from our closets and most importantly get ready to see the sun more often!

We all love a little UV exposure, as it increases our Vitamin D production, but science has proven time and again that overexposure to UV rays prematurely ages us in the form of wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, damages the eyes, burns us (“don’t touch my shoulder!”) and most dangerously, increases the chances of getting skin cancer.

To ensure that you and your skin have fun in the sun with no regrets, as your skin is for life, here are 10 tips from your skin care expert!

Ten Tips to Protect you from Premature Skin Ageing:

  1. Seek shade. Avoid over exposure to the sun, especially between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM, when the sun is strongest and UV risk is at its highest.
  2. Do not burn. Every sunburn increases the chance of getting skin cancer.
  3. Avoid tanning and UV tanning booths. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, one indoor tanning session increases melanoma risk by 20 percent. (Source: SkinCancer.org)
  4. Use sunscreen. Use sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher every day.
  5. Apply sunscreen all-over. Apply one ounce (2 tablespoons) of sunscreen to your entire body 30 minutes before going outside. Follow the manufacturers’ instructions, as you may need to re-apply during the day or if swimming, etc.
  6. Wear protective clothing. Cover up with clothing, including a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses.
  7. Keep new-born’s out of the sun. Sunscreen should be used on babies over the age of six months.
  8. Do a skin examination every month. Early detection of abnormalities on the skin is most important.
  9. See a dermatologist. At least once a year take a visit for a professional skin exam. Your health is paramount.
  10. Wear environmental protection. Don’t forget to provide your skin with environmental protection with antioxidants. Antioxidants fight free radicals, which are the troublemakers in your system.

Repechage

PEEL + PRIME with two REPÊCHAGE products!

To PEEL + PRIME, firstly we are going to look at REPÊCHAGE Biolight™ Glyco-Sea Glycolic Peel

Beyond brightening…PEEL + PRIME

To PEEL + PRIME we need to start with the peel.  This peel is a deep, intensive skin treatment that focuses on resurfacing and renewing skin with less irritation than standard glycolic peels.

This formula of glycolic acid combined with our unique Laminaria Complex reveals a brighter, more youthful complexion with added anti-oxidant and calming properties.

Benefits:

  • Safe and effective facial resurfacing (pH 3.5).
  • Encourages increased cell turnover to reveal brighter more youthful skin.
  • Helps smooth fine lines and diminish the appearance of hyperpigmentation, age spots and scars.

The active complex is organic in origin formulated with a blend of EcoCert seaweeds, tree bark, plant and root extracts, green tea and chamomile flower extract. This combination of ingredients provides stimulation of cell regeneration and collagen production together with  hydration and moisturisation lock in with trace minerals, vitamins, amino acids and anti-oxidants that help to brighten the skin, calm inflammation and promote rapid healing.

the  REPÊCHAGE® European & Biolight™ Glycolic Peel Facial

So, PEEL and now PRIME

The second REPÊCHAGE product is the REPÊCHAGE Mineral Face Shield™.  This can be used between treatments after having the REPÊCHAGE Biolight™ Glyco-Sea Glycolic Peel as part of a salon REPÊCHAGE Signature Skin Care treatment.

PEEL + PRIMENow, protecting AND perfecting your skin has never been so easy!

PRIME + PROTECT = PERFECT SKIN

This primer product has a mineral-based formula that provides serious skin care with serious environmental protection …… all-in-one!

This light-weight cream glides on sheer to the skin, that instantly creates an air-brushed finish while working all day to guard against harmful UV light and free radicals.

It’s amazing formulation contains Laminaria Digitata (a seaweed which is a potent ant-oxidant containing vitamins, minerals, and amino acids plus polysaccharides to lock in the skins moisture); polymer microspheres that glide onto the skin that diffuse light diminishing the look of fine lines; and Zinc Oxide that forms a physical barrier shielding the skin from UV damage whilst soothing and  absorbing excess oils.

When and how to use:

Every morning, apply Repêchage Mineral Face Shield Environmental Protection over moisturising cream or serum as your last skin care step before applying makeup.

TBG Woogle: Massage? How Often Do I Need One?

Massage?  When was the last time you received one?

massage

If you have to pause to think about the answer, then chances are you have gone too long without a massage. Our lives are rather full these days between working and looking after the family, running errands, paying bills, and everything that comes with managing a household. But, it is as important to take care of yourself as it is caring for others in your work, family or social circle.

What are all the reasons massage is valuable for you?

A massage can help to alleviate joint and back pain, manage fibromyalgia and migraines, speed recovery from injury, increase blood circulation and manage stress, etc. The depth of massage is important too, and sense of this touch can affect you in terms of pressure, temperature, and the frequency of repetitive strokes. Weekly or monthly massages allow us to experience a variety of techniques that help us deal with our individual needs in everyday life.massage

Getting a regular massage is also important as it can help to prevent occupational injuries, such as repetitive stress injuries, muscle strains and carpal tunnel, as well as every day stress-related headaches and back ache.

This advice sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

I am sure your last few therapists have mentioned this to you on more than one occasion in the past. Just like athletes, our body is our tool and we depend on it working properly. It is for this reason that we must care for our bodies/tool with the same way that dancers, swimmers, and runners do, to help keep it functioning well. Obviously, massage is just one of the things that you need to do, but together with a healthy diet and lifestyle you can succeed in keeping your body well.

I do not have the time!

Really???

I believe we all have time for what is a priority to us. Yes, we are all busy, especially those of us who are caretakers of young children, ageing parents, or other family members.

What rings more true is to say “I do not believe receiving a massage is a priority in my busy life right now.”

I urge you to reconsider, for all the reasons mentioned. Everyone can find 30 minutes/one hour (one and a half, including travel time) each week, or every other week, or even monthly, for something that is a priority.

massageYour challenge, therefore, is to re-categorize massage as a priority in your life. You need some ‘Me-time’!

The bottom line is this: We cannot be as effective if we do not take good care of ourselves. It is imperative that we listen to our bodies and respond accordingly to its needs. So please, try turning off your phone, take a deep breath, lay yourself down on the massage couch instead, and let someone take care of you for a wonderful change of pace towards self-care and being the best in your job/life that you can be.

Let Shirley-Louise – The Beauty Guru, Caterham, help you achieve this by starting with a Stress-Relief Back, Neck & Shoulder Massage – so, just click here to check out the ‘Reviving & Relaxing’ Massage and BodyCare menu and select the one you need for your ‘Me-time’!


TBG Woogle: #multimasking – What is it?

#multimasking is the beauty buzzword for this year?

 

#multimasking

– yes, this is it!

Not BB, CC or anything else – it’s ‘Multimasking’!

So, what is it?

As the name suggests, #multimasking is the use of more than one mask at the same time. This is not a new phenomenon for us experienced beauty therapists, but it is for the average person.

‘Multimasking’ is a masking technique that treats the variety of skin types and their conditions or moods that be found on an individual face; your face.

In the salon we can mix up our own masks, using clay-based setting masks, but adding a variety of active ingredients, from flower waters and oils to liquidised fruits and vegetables, but we can also use serums and concentrates, such as hyaluronic acid or arginine peptide; plus we also have a large range of pre-mixed products manufactured by our favourite skin care suppliers, too.  This gives a skin therapist or technician a large palate of possible mask combinations.

As that advert from a well-known butter brand says “You can go free style”,

and you can with masks!

The first stage of your new adventure is to know your skin, but remember your skin will change throughout each year – so, have a consultation with an accurate skin analysis or face mapping. This is a technique that all experienced skin care therapists or technicians can perform for you.

They may just carry out visual inspection of your skin under a magnifying lamp or through special goggles; or they may be a little more technical by using a black UV magnifying lamp, a moisture content analyser or very advanced using a Skin Scanner, which gives you all of the above, but also gives the depth of your wrinkles!!!

Frightening, eh?  But if you are having a series of professional salon treatments for a particular skin condition or mood, the skin scanner analysis is carried out regularly to monitor your skin’s progress and the treatment’s success.

Now, aimed with this information you can make your selection of multimasking products. But this is where it can get #multimaskingcomplicated!

The beauty counters in your local store or online can be bewildering, as they will be stacked high with row upon row of products, but let’s just look at the skin type/condition with key words to look out for.

For example:

Normal or Anti-ageing may just require ‘brightening’ – which may be just neck or cheeks, these masks may contain vitamins, proteins/peptides, have a clay-base for a tightening effect or exfoliating acids to induce cell renewal;

Dry areas require moisturising – cream or oil-based that provides emollient but hydrates without clogging the pores, can contain vitamins, amniotic fluids, collagen or Hyaluronic acid;

Acne-prone or congested areas need detoxifying – the latest mask on the market is charcoal based, although clay or mud-based masks are still very popular, with some containing lactic or citric acids, as they deep cleanse and exfoliate the skin, removing dirt and impurities to prevent clogged pores, blackheads and spot formation;

Sensitive areas, such as under the eyes, require soothing – there is a variety available including products to eliminate redness, the most popular this season is the use of silver or the sheet mask, and these can be purchased for the whole face or just the eye area.  They can be cut to fit; whn you are Multimasking you do not want the mask to cover the whole face, just the area that requires it.

Hopefully this gives you a bit of an insight into this popular treatment

– so, happy #multimasking !!!!!!

Or just take a look at the Repêchage Signature European Multimasking Facial or the Juliette Armand Elements Personalised Multimasking Facial and let Shirley-Louise – The Beauty Guru, Caterham, take the strain out of product selection for you!

Mind you, we should also be considering #multiskincaring to match our #multimasking – will this be the next big buzzword, do you think?
