No More Grin and Bear It! Trust LYCON Hot Waxing

It would be cruel to describe waxing as an enjoyable experience, but there are ways to make it as pain-free as it can get. As long as you choose LYCON, the brand that has brought salon waxing into the collective consciousness since 1978!

IMG_3339

So, be brave and go straight for the hot wax. Despite what your instincts tell you, hot wax is much friendlier and effective for most of the skins. It’s soft and ready to apply in a matter of seconds, and it’s less painful to peel off with one quick pull.

 

Here’s a selection of hot waxes to choose from:

 

Our top pick is the original and legendary Apricot hot wax LYCON launched in 1979. Four decades later, it’s still a bestseller in salons around the world. Its formula is very gentle, yet very strong, and it conditions and nurtures skin while waxing.

 

With a luscious strawberry scent, the SoBerry Delicious not only smells heavenly, but it’s easy to work with too! It contains LYCON’s unique titanium dioxide technology, which makes the application creamy and flexible, excellent for sensitive areas, perfect for Brazilian waxing and short 1mm hair.

 

A scrumptious waxing experience comes with the SoYummy hot wax, which is best described as a chocolate treat without the calories. It has a super gentle formulation with iron oxide and micro mica that makes it great for all waxing.

 

If this selection of hot waxes hasn’t put your mind at ease and you’re still wondering “just how painful” waxing is, there are few more tips we could share, to help prep and soothe your skin.

 

Exfoliate the day before, as it helps eliminate ingrown hairs and gives your skin a super smooth finish. Be sure to continue to exfoliate after waxing too, with an all-natural salt or sugar scrub, once or twice a week in the shower, as this will help buff off dry skin and dead cells, and unblock congested pores. We recommend our light and creamy body scrub made with grapefruit, lemon and bamboo granules.

 

Tone your skin after waxing, with an antiseptic or astringent, in order to decrease the risk of infection and tighten the pores in the process. Our LYCOTANE skin cleanser, made with jasmine and chamomile, is a reliable, light and refreshing clean-up nurse for your skin post wax?

 

Moisturise to lock in your body’s natural oils. Our go-to moisturiser is the Perfect Finish, an apricot, sweet almond and lavender oil that keeps your skin supple and hydrated.

 

Overtime, regular waxing with high quality LYCON products will protect your skin and lead to finer hairs with far less grow back, and the ‘grin and bear it’ days of waxing will be a thing of the past – trust LYCON!

 

LYCON waxing products are available at leading beauty salons across the UAE and wider GCC.

Summer Time Extra Love

IMG_6733

Summer time means wearing sandals and  spending time out-doors. We religiously use sun screen or sun block all over our face and body, and tend to neglect our feet. Our feet see the worst of summer ,they get exposed to sun, heat and dust. Today I’m going review the Palmers coca butter formula magic foot cream. This cream is infused with vitamin E, peppermint oil and mango butter. The palmers magic foot cream is formulated to deeply moisturizers rough, dry skin and soothes tired feet.

I am really glad I found this amazing product from palmers. The Magic Foot cream is a great product to deal with dry skin and thick skin feet. It also helped me when I had very sore feet from walking everyday with a heavy pregnant belly, in the summers. Before I would go to sleep I would apply this over my feet and the next day I would be ready again for walking. My Skin felt softer afterwards but this was also following a soak, scrub and pumice stone. Took a bit of rubbing in but maybe I used too much which is why I’ve said a little goes a long way.I have done this for two nights and feet feel good already.I am now using it on my elbows as well and it really helps!

The palmers formula has a lovely mouse-creamy consistency, rather than a thick balm which absorbs into the skin immediately and leaves your skin feeling plump. You can also apply it 2 times a day and will not leave you skin feeling greasy.

I have tried all sorts of foot creams, even some costing much more than the palmers cocoa butter magic foot cream, but this is definitely the best. You do need to put socks on immediately after using but it soaks in quite quickly and a little goes a very long way. It is not heavily fragranced which is also a plus point for me as in pregnancy I have found me self turning away from fragranced products as my sense of smell is enlightened.

Dermalogica Ion Active review

dermalogica

Since I have shifted to middle east my skin has changed a lot. Due to the weather condition here, the skin gets damaged as we move from an air-conditioned space into direct sunlight. It has quite a harsh impact on our skin. So I recently tried the new IonActive Power Treatment that combines thermal activity and the latest treatment-room technology to optimize product penetration for dramatically-improved skin. It was simply amazing. Prior to treatment, my skin was dehydrated on the forehead and I had pigmentation on both my cheek bones. Believe it or not the treatment worked like a charm on my skin. I could see a major difference in just 45 minutes as my skin felt light with a more balanced tone. Unbelievably it was glowing and spotless. This treatment has 4 different type of products depending on your skin.

  • Retinol to firm and reduce visible signs of skin aging.
  • Niacinamide to control and prevent adult acne breakouts.
  • Hyaluronic Acid to relieve dehydrated and/or sensitized skin.
  • Oligopeptide to brighten hyperpigmentation for a more balanced skin tone.

It starts with face mapping and with that you have an idea about your exact skin condition. A few minutes of facial cleansing is followed by exfoliation. After that the ION Active product is applied, based on skin type, by roller machine massage for 5 minutes to help with better absorption of the product.  Then a Gelloid cold or hot mask, based on skin type, is applied and left on for 5 minutes. This is followed be an LED light session for 10 minutes. They use different LED light colours based on the treatment we have chosen. For my pigmentation they used green. After 10 minutes she cleaned my face and applied toner and moisturiser. I noticed that my pigmentation marks had reduced by 70% on the right side of my cheek bone and the marks had completely disappeared on the left cheek bone. The therapist also gave me a complimentary skin care regime which contains a sun block, moisturizer, special cleanser and toner. The total cost for one sitting is AED 550 whereas every Monday carries a special discount of 25% for women.
