4 OF THE BEST ORGANIC BODY LOTIONS BY PRIMAVERA…

Do you fancy some Organic body lotion this summer? Here is a list of the top 4 of the best organic body lotions, made by Primavera.

Primavera (the Italian word for spring) was founded by Ute Leube and Kurt Nübling in the early 1980s, who together established a company upon love for nature and its holistic benefits. Seeking the purest ingredients of the highest quality, they began to develop their own organic formulas and started fostering partnerships with like-minded farmers, first across Europe and eventually around the world. These partnerships allowed Ute Leube and Kurt Nübling to achieve the absolute highest global standards in growing the nearly two-hundred varieties of plants, flowers, and fruits used to produce their essential oils.

Upon completion, Primavera’s first batch of eighteen different essential oils was unveiled at a seminar in 1986. The humble offering sold out almost immediately and the company has since been busy as a pioneer of the organic skincare and aromatherapy movement. They have developed relationships with physical and massage therapists, alternative medicine practitioners, botanists, green chemists and estheticians – all of whom readily shared their knowledge of healing plants and holistic living with Primavera’s founders.

THE LATEST GEL NAILS AT THE HAIR & BEAUTY LOUNGE…

 

A full manicure with gels is £30 and consists of a hand soak, filing, shaping, and cleaning the nails, hand and forearm massage, application of gel nail, polish at your choice and top coat.

Many people worry about getting gels because they fear their nails won’t be able to breathe, but nails are actually dead to begin with, so they don’t need to breathe! Your nail beds and cuticles are what’s important — they’re made of living tissue and why you need to be careful.

A gel manicure does last longer than a regular manicure depending on which brand you use it can last anything from 2 weeks. At the moment we are using by Pure Nails with ‘Summer Nights’ colours which include Cerise, Neon Cloud, Neon Green, Neon Pink, Orchid, and Turquoise.

#ELLE’S TIPS ON HOW TO FIX A BROKEN NAIL WITH A TEABAG…

How to fix a broken nail with a teabag from Elle Beauty.

Step 1: Clip the broken nail as close to the fingertip as you can.

Step 2: Using a glass or crystal file, gently file any snags, but be sure to avoid the split itself.

Step 3: Trim a tea bag or paper coffee filter to the size of a small patch that can cover the break in the nail.

Step 4: Paint the broken nail with a generous coat of clear polish.

Step 5: While the clear polish is tacky, gently place the trimmed tea bag/coffee filter over the broken part of the nail (It may be helpful to use a tweezer to hold and apply the tea bag segment).

Step 6: Allow it to dry. Then cover the nail with one or two more coats of clear polish.

Step 7: After the clear polish has dried you can polish with the color of your choice to camouflage the tea bag.
