People are becoming more willing to spend money on pampering themselves these days. And the beauty industry is definitely indulging that! There are an increasing number of amazing beauty treatments and products available nowadays, and today we’re looking at some of the most popular.
Hair removal has become very popular, and an everyday essential. There are different methods, but waxing is a popular one due to its long-lasting effects. Waxing, sugaring and threading all remove the hairs from the roots, while shaving and creams only takes off the visible hair; so regrowth is much faster. Waxing can be a painful and tricky procedure to do yourself; visiting a professional is definitely advised. Wax strips are used on larger areas, such as your legs, and hard wax is used on more sensitive and delicate areas.
Permanent makeup correction is a technique where a pigment is tattooed onto the clients face, to resemble makeup or enhance natural features. It is an effective cosmetic procedure, and is being used to accomplish more styles and looks nowadays. Eyeliner and lip liner are popular makeup products that are replicated, giving the client a more polished look without making an effort every day. Eyebrow care is also gaining popularity, as thicker and stronger eyebrows have become so popular. Many permanent makeup artists are now able to tattoo and enhance the shape and colour of people’s natural brows.
Botox has been around for a long time now and remains a firm favourite in the beauty world. Botulinum toxin is injected into the face and neck, freezing the muscles and erasing wrinkles. Results take up to two weeks to show, and the effects last up to 9 months. It is vital that you check reviews and make sure you are booking a respectable physician for Botox treatments, as there can be dangerous side effects.
Exfoliation is an important beauty step, and microdermabrasion is simply a more thorough and in-depth version. An exfoliating material, such as crystal flakes, is used gently to remove the outer layer of dead and damaged skin cells. Then a suction machine lifts up and removes the cells. It is a relatively light procedure, and can be performed by a professional or at home.
Whether for health, sports, or leisure reasons; massages are brilliant ways of pampering and relaxing the body. This treatment has been around since ancient medieval times and remains a popular option for most. There are hundreds of types, all aiming at different locations of the bodies and with distinctive manners. Essentially, massages are the application of pressure on the body, to relax the muscles and release tension.
A suntan is now a vital summer accessory, and tanned skin is seen as a desirable look in many countries. Sunbeds have been used for years to achieve this look, using UV rays similar to the sun’s, to affect the skin. However, with the medical world informing consumers of the damages from this, fake tanning has greatly risen in popularity. A spray tan is a common treatment, and is seen as much safer. There are at home treatments, but these must be applied carefully to avoid streaks!
