8 Beauty Treatments Everyone is Talking About!

ccc

It seems like every second day I’m reading about new beauty treatments that are said to make you look younger and feel fantastic. Here are eight of my favourites which everyone has been talking about.

Wellness Therapies

Wellness is the word on everyone’s lips these days. Everyone’s looking for ways to keep their body and mind healthy, and who can blame them. Things like meditation, yoga and Ayurveda are becoming more popular as a way of relaxing. There are even dedicated well-being holidays for people who want to escape the stresses of everyday living!

Vinotherapy

This one’s definitely for me! Most wine lovers will love telling their friends how red wine is supposed to be good for their health (in moderation!). But even though I’ll always agree that drinking it is my favourite wine activity, Vinotherapy is not actually liquid consumption. Vinotherapy makes use of grape skins and seeds to create beauty products and therapies. These products and therapies are said to keep skin looking younger for longer! And…..grab a glass while you’re at it.

Body Contouring

I’m not really the biggest fan of body manipulations or changes in any way. I’m a huge advocate for learning to love the body you’re in. But Body Contouring is a pretty popular way to remove excess skin and fat from those trouble spots around your body. Many procedures are non-invasive leaving no surgical scars. This makes it an ideal way to get fantastic results quickly.

Threading

Threading is an Eastern technique that has become increasingly popular in the Western world. Using a doubled-up thread of cotton the beautician will pull your hairs out from the root. It’s particularly effective on eyebrows as you can achieve a perfectly arched brow quickly and easily. It’s better for you than waxing as it doesn’t pull at your skin in the same way. Just prepare yourself for a bit of pain (no more than you would feel with tweezing).

Candle Cutting

Split ends are the worst enemy of most women. It seems like the only way to get rid of them is to cut off some of the length. Not ideal when you’re trying to grow it! A new Brazilian technique promises to rid you of those pesky split ends once and for all. The treatment involves twisting a section of your hair and then running a candle along it to burn off the dead ends!

Mud Baths

If you’re looking for softer and more youthful-looking skin, mud baths are the way forward. I just talked about Mud on Tuesday! For thousands of years, people have believed that mud offers many healing properties. Today mud therapy is being used in spas all over the world as well as in naturally-occurring mud baths. Immerse yourself into the brown goop and reemerge a totally new and refreshed person.

Microdermabrasion

If bad skin gets you down, microdermabrasion can help you. It works by spraying tiny crystal onto your skin to remove the top layer. This can be used to help people suffering from acne scarring and sun damage. Think of it as a powerful exfoliator.

Men’s Treatments

Lastly, it used to be that all men had to do was make sure that they were clean-shaven. Not anymore. It’s becoming less and less unusual to go to a beauty salon and see men waiting in line to get pampered. And rightly so – it’s not just the girls who deserve to be treated.

GLAMGLOW ThirstyCleanse Mud to Foam Cleanser

The benefits of mud in skin care is evident in the long line up of mud masks from both the drug store and high end shops. As well as from the long and ever growing list of spa treatments that involve mud. But the idea of slapping some mud, or mud-based product, on your face on a daily bases was a bit of a turnoff for me. As much as I agree with the moisturizing benefits, I did truly believe that the use of mud every day would clog my pores since, well….mud is dirt, right?!

Yet all these thoughts were pushed aside after falling in love hard for the GLAMGLOW ThirstyCleanse Mud to Foam Cleanser; and AHHHHMAZING daily face cleanser that leaves my face feeling cleaner and smoother than ANYTHING I’ve ever used before. I’m serious. I was a little intimidated by the name (GLAMGLOW) and even the packaging at first. It’s bright colours and shiny stars actually led me to believe it was targeted to a completely different audience. That teaches me not to judge a book….

The cleanser smooths on dry and thick like a good mask, and I apply it as such. I use about two pumps from the bottle and cover my whole face. Then I wet just my finger tips and start massaging the cleanser in. It instantly turns into a silky cleanser that I could spend hours massaging in. It feels amazing on my face. Then I simply splash a few handfuls of water on my face to remove the cleanser and pat my face try with a face cloth. I can then skip the moisturizer…no joke! My face feels so fresh, clean, and moisturized all at the same time! I’ve put aside my Una Brennan Super Facialist Oil for the time being (although my love for that runs deep as well), and I’m spending some time with my new love, the GLAMGLOW Mud to Foam cleanser.

I’ve also sampled the ThirstyMud Hydrating Mask and I have a feeling more than my little sample sized will be needed for the future. What other GLAMGLOW products can you suggest for me?
