8 Beauty Treatments Everyone is Talking About!


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!


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 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.


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.

Simple Beauty Enhancements that Don’t Involve Surgery


I have mixed feelings about cosmetic surgery. On the one hand, I totally get why it is important. Babies born with deformities, for example, can lead a life where they aren’t a constant target for bullies. And it’s all thanks to the surgeon’s knife. Burn victims, too, might want to reduce the damage caused by horrendous injuries. And, I have a lot of sympathy for those that aren’t happy with their bodies and feel surgery can make them feel more comfortable and confident.

But would I ever have it done? I’m really not sure. Luckily, though, there are plenty of non-invasive treatments that are available for anyone who is a little scared of an operation. Today, I’m going to talk about several of the most common.

Wrinkles and Lines

We all develop fine wrinkles and lines – as early as our late teens in some cases. And, when your basic makeup stops hiding the results, it might be time to look for something that makes your face look younger. Moisturizing and exfoliating can hide a multitude of sins, including wrinkles. You can also use skin plumping products. But, if all else fails, there is the option of dermabrasion or microdermabrasion. It’s just a more hardcore version of exfoliating. During the process, it removes an entire layer of your skin so that the younger skin is exposed underneath. It works in the same way as sandpaper does – although don’t worry too much, it’s not as painful as it sounds.


OK, so Botox and other fillers aren’t non-invasive. But they are quick,  painless, and safe – as long as you go to a medical center rather than a standard salon. There have been plenty of horror stories, and I certainly wouldn’t recommend filler injections. But, I suppose they do have a place.

Laser Treatments

Laser treatments can be used for plenty of beauty problems. The most common, of course, is the removal of unwanted body hair. It’s painless and reasonably cheap, I speak from experience. But, always make sure that you find a salon or medical treatment center that has an excellent reputation.

Laser treatments are also available for acne problems, thread veins, age spots and even nail fungus treatment. They are also used for removing tattoos – perfect for those that made a bad design choice when they were younger!

Permanent Makeup

What are your thoughts on HD brows? Let’s be honest, there have been plenty of disasters I have seen in my hometown alone, so I have no idea of what the rest of the world looks like! They do come in very handy, though, I must admit.

If you have naturally thin brows or small eyelashes, then permanent makeup solutions can save you a lot of time getting ready for work or a night out. They usually last a few weeks or a month at a time, too. So, even if it does go wrong, you won’t have to hide in your home with your curtains drawn for too long. However, make sure that you go to a reputable company – there have been some horrendous and scary issues with the process.
