3 Good Reasons Why Scrubs Get It Done! It’s interesting that many of us will make regular appointments at the spa or salon to get a facial but very few even think about making an appointment for a body scrub.

Who would have thought that using mud would be such a popular beauty treatment? It’s ironic! We spend hours washing off the mud from our skin after a day out in the heat and dust and then we spend a few more hours slathering it onto our skin for it to look smooth and beautiful. There’s definitely something to be said about the many anomalies in beauty treatments. If you, like many others, have found the idea of a mud mask strange, you should know that ‘mud’ mask is really a misnomer. The mud used in such a mask is really a type of clay that is rich in minerals and other special ingredients that work together to cleanse and soften the skin, leaving it looking smooth and younger-looking. The claims that you read about the effects of a mud mask really are true. How To Use A Mud Mask A mask should always be applied to clean, dry skin.

So what exactly are brides’ sights set on this season? What are they looking at when it comes to dress styles, hair, diets, skin and make-up? Let’s take a peek at some of the latest wedding trends that show up on the horizon. Brides are pushing the envelope this season when it comes to bridal finery and jewellery. Concept sarees could be the trend this year – sarees that are pre-stitched or draped so they give you a feeling of a gown. Jacket blouses are also in focus, very often embellished with heavy embroidery and matched with sheer sarees or lehengas, where the colours are moving away from the traditional bright, dark ones to soft, pastel hues. When it comes to hair, the fussy, old traditional look seems to be giving way to a more natural look, embellished with flowers and pearls. The tall, tiered wedding cakes that have become so popular even in traditional weddings may give way to smaller, lacy-looking cakes with ruffles and wedding jewellery might see less of sparkling stones and more of heavy old world looking gold. When it comes to skin, there’s the never-changing demand for soft, dewy skin, especially on that big day … Continue reading A Bride’s Eye View Of Latest Wedding Trends
What used to be an exclusively female domain is now being patronised by an increasing number of men. A few years ago we would never have seen a man in a spa. The only time men ventured anywhere near a spa was to drop off their better halves for a beauty treatment. Today, all that has changes and it is a common sight to see men too getting the full spa treatment. In fact, statistics show that men may actually be larger spa consumers. Here’s an interesting look at men in the spa! Spas Then & Now While most men love the idea of relaxing and getting pampered (and there’s nothing wrong with it too), few will admit it. Well, the secret is out now. More and more spas are creating a gender-neutral ambience so it is appealing to both men and women. Earlier most spas were distinctly feminine. Today, the pink flowers and feminine fragrances have been replaced by clean, straight lines and a no-fuss, gender-neutral décor. The subtle but definite change is a sign that spas are acknowledging the increase in male clientele and are going out of their way to please them. What Do Men Like In … Continue reading Men in the spa !
