Pampering yourself is an essential part of self-care. We should always present our best selves to the world. These six beauty treatments will ensure a glowing presence: dental care, skin masks, hair DIY cures, massage, manicures/pedicure, and the very special “vampire” facial.
An excellent facial reigns supreme when it comes to skin treatments. There are many types of facials: acne breakouts, age management, hyper-pigmentation, sun spots, Rosacea, sensitive skin, fine lines, wrinkles, skin tag/mole removal. Most of these skin treatments require advanced estheticians. Skin treatments for your body include laser hair removal, body peels, and cream-based treatments like tightening creams or butt enhancement creams. These products stimulate cellular growth to increase moisture and decrease collagen loss. Some even claim to fight cellulite. It could be helpful to know your skin type, however, for when you seek out home remedies so you can get a better handle on what type of approach would best work for you.
For dry hair, use apple cider vinegar and olive oil to help remove product buildup that dulls hair. The vinegar removes the buildup, and the oil nourishes the hair and scalp. For an itchy scalp use fresh lemon juice. The acid in the lemons removes loose flakes on the scalp. For limp or thin hair, spritz flat beer in your hair. When the beer evaporates, it leaves a protein residue that strengthens the hair. Take care when selecting your shampoo products. For coarse or curly hair, experts recommend that you pick a shampoo that hydrates as it cleanses to help keep your hair hydrated and clean for longer between showers.
Your smile says a lot about your health and personal aesthetic. Aesthetic dental procedures can treat crooked, missing, or discolored teeth. Dental spas offer a wide variety of services to meet your needs. Clear plastic aligners are an increasingly popular alternative to traditional braces. Experts explain more on this traditional braces alternative: “Because they're minimally invasive and practically invisible, no one even has to know that you're wearing them! You can remove them to eat, brush and floss, so they won't interfere with your diet and oral hygiene routine like traditional braces.” Tooth implants and teeth whitening are additional alternative treatments, each used as appropriate.
A massage is one of the most rewarding treatments you can give yourself. There are different types of massages: treatment/injury, sports, prenatal, Swedish, deep tissue, and a combination of massage techniques. If you work at a desk all day and your shoulders, neck, and back are sore, a massage is a right and natural treatment for you.
Manicure and Pedicure
Receiving a manicure and pedicure may seem like a luxury, but it is a beauty treatment needed to keep your hands and feet healthy. Hangnails are no fun. Keeping your hands and feet smooth and hangnail free is the primary purpose of manicures and pedicures. In the summertime everyone loves pedicures, but do not neglect them in the winter. Winter months can leave your hands and feet dry and cracked. Moisturizing your hands and feet daily will ensure they will stay soft and supple.
While this sounds a bit scary, the "vampire" facial has gained a lot of popularity due to its treatment for fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and even correcting uneven skin tones. It uses platelet rich plasma that is sourced through our own blood to promote collagen/elastin production and healing. While you won’t be ready to flaunt your skin the day of, in a few days you’ll notice the difference in the state of your skin.
