BRIGHTEN UP YOUR SKIN…

According to Prima regular exfoliation is the key to a healthy glow, and the best way to get this is with an acid toner.

It’s less scary that they sound as they work at dissolving the dead cells, and are often kinder than particle-packed face scrubs.

WHAT IS AN EXFOLIATION FACIAL TREATMENT?…



An exfoliation facial is a treatment that can not only help to remove dead skin celss but can also slow down the rate at which skin ages.

Cleansing alone will not give the same effect on your skin but exfoliation helps to slough off these cells, and it’s not used strictly on your face it can also be used on your body. I recently had a back exfoliation and it was amazing how different my skin felt afterwards.

You can buy different types of exfoliaiton products around from powders to electrical gadgets. However, a professional exfoliation facial given by a qualified beautician will give you the best results. Contact the Hair & Beauty Lounge to book an appointment with one of our beauticians.

Swedish Massage – this massage uses long smooth strokes, kneading, and circular movements in superficial layers of muscle using massage lotion or oil.
Aromatherapy Massage – this massage uses one or more scented oils which are selected to suit different types of ailments and for relaxation, energizing and stress.
Hot Stone Massage – this is done by using heated smooth stones that are placed on certain points on the body to warm and loosen tight muscles and balance energy levels in the body.
