WHAT IS BEAUTY?

We are genetically formulated to appreciate beauty.
We love to see a deer, hate a hippopotamus.
We love to touch a baby bird, hate vultures.
We love roses,.
Eye is the window of our brain; it loves everything that is cute, soft and soothing. We want to create/finish everything beautifully in our daily life. We appreciate a thing, matter, show, clothes, house, jewellery, food, decoration, by saying ”beautifully done”.
The love for appeared beauty and rejection for less attractiveness is our nature.
What we want in others is a want for ourselves also?
What is inside another’s personality, we can know after a close relationship.
Beauty or attractive personality is the outer packaging, which glued us towards someone…without knowing that person.
Beauty has a potential capacity in it to pull the crowd, like honeybees are attracted to honey.
So there is nothing wrong in glorifying beauty.
Its wrong to disapprove less beautiful things, animals, humans but beauty has its own benefits.
Not that beautiful people are less intelligent or less sensitive.
Beauty is a pleasure.
It’s a satisfaction.
It’s a gift of God.
Beauty is love.

What is particularly beautiful for everyone? There is no definition.
It’s our own choice to think, feel and enjoy, what is beautiful in our sense.
Looking or grooming ourselves to be more beautiful, is an art in itself.

Purification of our character, moral thinking, cool behaviour, love for creation, caring for others emotions, sensitivity towards humanity, less greed for power n money, makes a beautiful personality more beautiful, heavenly and pleasurable.
So lets look and approve beauty…both inner and outer.

Visit us at Beauty Elite we have the art to make you more beautiful on the outside the rest is up to you.

TURNING BACK THE HANDS OF TIME

Turning back the hands of time—it’s a quest for many women who simply refuse to age gracefully. And with all that’s available aesthetically (Botox, Fillers, Threads, Treatments) the visible signs of aging can be erased altogether. But what about on the inside? Are there ways we can beat the clock for life when it comes to overall physical and mental health and well being we say yes.
Staying young and beautiful forever used to be science fiction, but fiction is rapidly becoming fact.

FEED YOUR BRAIN

What you put in your mouth can affect your mind. And it’s important to start eating right as early as your teens and twenties to stave off mental stress. According to the NHS, UK adults between the ages of 18–24 suffer the most mental health distress.

Proper nutrition is a key factor in combating conditions associated with mental distress such as avoiding processed foods, sugar, caffeine, and alcohol. This will reduce the demand on the adrenal glands, which are responsible for secreting cortisol (the stress hormone) and play a role in managing your metabolism. We recommend taking supplements containing vitamins B, C, and magnesium to support overall adrenal health.

Monitoring your hormone levels throughout your life and taking action to maintain balance or repair imbalances can combat many of the conditions of aging, including insomnia, low libido, memory loss, and unwanted weight gain.

Hormones control everything in the body, acting as the body’s chemical messengers to ensure optimal functioning. For example, low testosterone can reduce your libido, while low levels of progesterone are linked to insomnia and other sleep disturbances. As previously mentioned, too much cortisol can cause foggy thinking and undesirable weight gain. The chronological aging process is unstoppable, but the way you look and feel over the course of a lifetime is heavily linked to hormone balance and lifestyle choices.

KEEP STRESS UNDER CONTROL

Chronic stress initiates an increase in the amount of cortisol-secreted daily, which leads to weight gain, irritability, insomnia, mood disorders, low libido, high blood sugar, and high blood pressure. We suggest stress-lowering techniques such as deep belly breathing , yoga and our Tibetan massage.

Cardiovascular exercise also helps relieve stress because it boosts levels of endorphins, the feel-good hormone. And don’t forget strength training.

BUILD A THICK SKIN

Our body’s largest organ our skin shows the signs of aging more than any other body part.

The most important preventive measure you can take against the sun is to build up your antioxidant levels and maintain adequate levels of vitamins A, C, D and E. We know eating lots of brightly coloured organic fruits and vegetables also boosts levels of these vitamins. These powerful vitamins work liked natural sunscreen for the body, aiding in the prevention of skin aging.

Of course daily sunscreen is also recommended.

DON’T SKIMP ON SLEEP

Within the last year, researchers have uncovered multiple bodies of evidence that sleep (both the quality and quantity of it) is imperative to multiple aspects of your health.

While you sleep, your body enters a sort of ‘repair mode,’ repairing damage from the day and preparing your body to handle whatever comes next.

Not getting enough sleep can also lead to chronic adult-onset illnesses that can shorten lifespan like type 2 Diabetes. “Researchers found that low-quality sleep increases insulin resistance by as much as 82 percent. Another study found that lack of sleep (less than 7.5 hours a night) exacerbates genetic influences linked to weight gain and obesity. Ideally, you should achieve seven to nine hours of sleep each night—and that’s actual time sleeping, not just lying in the bed.”

Even more motivation to move up your bedtime: “Without high quality and quantity of sleep, your metabolism can slow to a crawl.

Try to implement our advice and visit us so we can take care of your outside beauty which is what we do, and we do it very well.

FASHION FOR THE OVER 60S

How to dress at any age can be challenging, but for women over 60 it can be especially fraught. You want to be fashionable, but many of the styles you see advertised are clearly designed more with younger women (of a very specific body type) in mind. The fashion world may be focused on the young, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up on your fashion goals.

Fashion Tips for Women over 60

To start, there are a few tips and ideas that can help you shape your fashion style at this point in your life.

Know yourself.

You’ve probably tried out different styles over the years so you’re in a strong position to have a pretty good idea of which ones felt the most like you. Your fashion shouldn’t be based on what anyone else wears or likes. Think carefully about what you like to wear and what you think you look best in.

Be willing to take risks (but know your own limits).

Sometimes an item that looks a bit too adventurous in the store can end up becoming one of your favourite things in your closet. If you’re intrigued but unsure about an outfit, go for it. That said; if you know wearing something would make you uncomfortable (say, you hate the feel of heels or don’t really like showing too much leg), don’t try to force something that doesn’t feel right.

Value comfort.

Now that you’re over 60, you’ve earned the right to value comfort over fashion. If you never want to wear heels again, don’t. If tight pants make you squirm uncomfortably all day long, switch to dresses.

Collect examples of clothes you like for inspiration.

One of the best ways to figure out what you like is to collect examples of styles that work for you as you see them. That could mean putting together a scrapbook with clippings from magazines or saving images on Pinterest. When you need inspiration before your next shopping trip, go browse the items you love.

Find a good tailor.

Finding clothes that fit just right in the store is an amazing feeling but, for many women, it’s an extremely rare one. Instead of settling for clothes that just kind of fit, find a good tailor in your town that can make the clothes you love fit your body perfectly.

Don’t worry about trends (but take advantage of the ones you like).

Every year, there will be new style trends. If you like them, great. Go get yourself some clothes in the new style. If you don’t care for them or are unsure, stick with buying things you know you like. Those trendy fashions will go out of style at some point anyway.

Try out new stores, or venture online.

If you’re having a hard time finding clothes that are in your size or that feel right to you at your current age in the stores you’re used to going to, go try somewhere new. Look up stores in your area that you haven’t gone to yet. Do some browsing of stores online. Your clothing options go far beyond the one or two stores you’ve traditionally shopped at the most.

The Fashion Staples to Have In Your Closet

A few elegant, yet basic essentials that you can slip on and feel comfortable in can make a big difference in your wardrobe. You’ll get more out of your closet if you invest in a few key items that can be mixed and matched into different outfits.

Go for a few good pairs of jeans.

Jeans are appropriate for so many occasions and can be matched with many other items. There are a few styles it’s worth considering:

  • Dark denim, midrise boot cut jeans.Ideally, the hem should be about 1/8 inch off the floor and the jeans should have a good fit.
  • Dark denim midrise, straight-leg jeans.You can wear moccasins loafers, flat ballet slippers or kitten heels with these jeans. If you prefer boots in the cooler weather, then you can just tuck them right into tall boots without a problem.
  • A pair of white jeans (yes, white) that are either straight leg or boot cut.You can wear these jeans in warmer weather with a cute pair of wedge sandals and a tunic top. Or a crisp navy jacket with a white tank top pairs well together here. A pair of straight leg jeans goes really great with a longer jacket or a tunic top. Just a tip: Remember to match your underwear to your skin not the white pants!
  • A pair of well-fitted dress pants in a lightweight wool blendCommon colors are black, charcoal, or navy. These pants can be worn with a pretty silky blouse, a t-shirt, or a tank top with a jacket or a cardigan.

Make sure you have a good jacket.

A lot of your summer clothes can be outfitted for other seasons as long as you have the right jacket.

A few good options to consider are:

  • A fitted jacket that’s short and not too snug and is about hip length.Black is a go-to colour, but navy and cream work well too. You can wear this jacket with your jeans, skirts, dresses, pants, and just about everything.
  • A cropped black leather jacket, believe it or not, can be worn with everything in your closet.Cropped at the waist is the best version to buy; it looks both classy and lasts forever.

Skirts are still very sexy.

Skirts are comfortable and can go with a lot of the tops you also pair with your jeans.

One good style of skirt to consider is the black pencil skirt, as it’s very versatile. It can be paired with black tights and a mid-size heel or high heels, wedges, or boots. It can also be paired with a long tank and cropped multi-coloured jacket.

Cardigans are essential for layering and having a polished look.

Like jackets, comfortable cardigans can help you use layers to make lighter clothes appropriate for lower temperatures. Long sleeves or three quarter length that hit at the hips are good. A longer cardigan looks wonderful with straight leg jeans or pants, but not with skirts.

Invest in a few good tank tops.

Consider buying tank tops in bulk because they are the backbone of the closet. You can buy them in whites, black and cream to wear under your jackets, blouses, and sweaters and cardigans. They also project a smoother look under everything.

Dresses never go out of style.

Dresses come in three styles that are particularly popular with women over 60: the wrap dress, the sleeveless sheath and the fit and flare dress. The wrap dress is worn with the belt knotted on the side. Sleeveless sheaths are worn with a snug fitting cardigan or a jacket. The fit and flare dress is fitted on top and flares out at the waist which makes a flirty swinging look. Any of these styles can go with a little black dress, which is perfect for dressing up or down.

So now you have sorted out the wardrobe time to fold back those years and look young again. So contact us today we specialise in facial rejuvenation, semi –permanent make up and micro blading also let us give you a relaxing massage and tidy up those nails.

 

HOW TO STAY HEALTHY IN MIND BODY AND SPIRIT

1. Give yourself a break

Recent studies show that stress causes physical changes in the body that can accelerate aging. Surges of the hormones adrenaline and cortisol cause blood pressure to rise and the heart to beat faster. These days, when our stressors seem unrelenting (a steady stream of job pressures, traffic jams, money problems), chronic doses of adrenaline and cortisol take a heavy toll on our physical and emotional health. It is said that “Sixty to 90 percent of all doctors’ visits each year are related to anxiety, depression, obsessive anger and hostility, insomnia, high blood pressure, heart attacks — all problems caused by stress,”

The most effective way to halt this destructive chain of events is to meditate, using a relaxation response.” The technique involves repeating a mantra — a word, sound, phrase, or prayer — for as little as 10 minutes a day, this meditation can help prevent age-related changes in the brain.

Try it! Once or twice daily, for 10 to 20 minutes (yes, you do have the time — you just have to make it), sit in a quiet place, close your eyes, relax your muscles, roll your head, neck, and shoulders, and breathe deeply. On each exhale, repeat your mantra. If other thoughts try to invade, tell yourself, “Oh, well,” and return to your word or phrase. When you’re done, keep your eyes closed for an extra minute; slowly allow everyday thoughts to flow back into your mind. Still not into the idea of meditation? Do yoga, or something active and repetitive, like running, instead. Focus on your breathing and how your feet land with each stride.

2. Consume more fat

The healthy kind, that is. Omega-3 fatty acids (found in salmon, walnuts, and seeds) help stabilize your mood, maintain bone strength, and help prevent visible signs of aging by reducing inflammation in the body

Try it! “Virtually every expert agrees that you need two grams of omega-3 fatty acids a day, eat plenty of fatty fish such as wild salmon (a 3-ounce serving has 6.9 grams), as well as walnuts (one-half ounce has 9.2 grams), If you aren’t getting enough omega-3s from your diet, consider taking fish-oil supplements.

3. Get off the couch

Not only does regular exercise help you lose weight, tone muscles, build healthier bones, and boost mood, it can also help you think clearly. Studies cited by the National Institute on Aging demonstrate a connection between physical exercise and better brainpower. Walking for just 10 minutes a day lowers your risk of Alzheimer’s by 40 percent,”

Try it! Make time for three 20-minute workouts a week. Run, bike, swim, dance — do whatever you enjoy most.

4. Feel the love

Anyone who’s ever fallen head over heels or discovered an activity that makes them eager to jump out of bed in the morning knows that passion is a powerful drug. The ability to embrace life boosts self-esteem, fuels the immune system, and improves cardiovascular health. Passion in bed can be particularly beneficial.

Try it! Banish boredom and isolation at all costs. Rekindle the flames with your partner. Or discover a new love in the form of a mental or physical pursuit: Take up painting, join a book club, start a running program (you’ll find motivation and tips and connect with other women like you, do whatever it is that makes you feel energized and alive.

5. Drink red wine

Last fall, a ground breaking study showed that mice on a high-fat diet supplemented with resveratrol, a substance found in the skin of grapes, had longer average lifespans than those not given the resveratrol. Clinical trails proved resveratrol clearly reduced the risk of diabetes and liver problems in mice, leading to a significant decline in obesity-related deaths. But here’s the catch, you’d have to drink 180 bottles of red wine a day to get the same benefits not recommended.

Researchers are working now to improve the potency of resveratrol in order to develop a pill that contains the optimum amount of the substance. In the meantime, there’s plenty of evidence that a little red wine can offset a host of health problems.

6. Do yoga

More energy, better posture, greater flexibility, improved mood, and less stress are just some of the rewards of this mind-body workout. Through conscious yoga breathing, you become aware of the connection between mind and body that translates into major anti-aging advantages. Yogic breathing has been shown to oxygenate the cells, ridding them of toxins, helping prevent illness, and making skin radiant. Unlike other exercises, says Lee, yoga poses are designed to work the inside of your body as well as the outside, which helps rejuvenate the digestive system, the reproductive system, even the immune system.

7. Bite into a Superfruit

Pomegranate juice has been found to lower cholesterol and blood pressure, possibly delay the onset of atherosclerosis, and potentially help reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease; researchers believe it may also help prevent some forms of cancer from starting or progressing. Pomegranates can also protect the skin from damage caused by UV rays, according to a latest study.

Another promising anti-ager is the goji berry, a fruit native to Tibet that boasts 500 times more vitamin C by weight than an orange and is considered to be the most abundant source of carotenoids, a type of antioxidant, on earth. This little nutritional powerhouse — which tastes like a denser, sweeter cranberry — also contains more iron than spinach, 18 amino acids, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, and vitamins B1, B2, B6 and E. he Goji berry stimulates the release of human growth hormone, a natural substance in the body that improves our ability to sleep, helps us look younger, reduces fat, improves memory, boosts libido, and enhances the immune system, he says.

8. Slather your skin with supplements

Retinol, a type of vitamin A (and a non-prescription, weaker-strength relative of Retinal-A), is considered the most effective over-the-counter treatment to smooth the skin and prevent wrinkles. Retinols cause the skin to gently peel, revealing a silkier, rosier, and more supple layer.

There are also benefits to be had using Alpha lipoic acid, a potent antioxidant that naturally occurs in the body. “Alpha lipoic acid is a wonderful anti-aging mechanism. It has been shown to reduce fine lines, improve skin texture, tighten pores, and give skin a general radiance.

We hope these tips will help you and remember visit us and we can also turn back the clock and help you not just feel younger but look younger.

We look forward to meeting you.

BOOK YOUR TIBETAN MASSAGE NOW, WHY WAIT TO FEEL GREAT?

HERE ARE SOME BENEFITS OF OUR TIBETAN MASSAGE

The classical texts of Tibetan Medicine list a variety of indications and benefits of Tibetan Kunye Massage. Some of these traditional indications are described below.

Kunye lengthens the lifespan!

In Traditional Tibetan Medicine it is purported that regular Kunye Massage promotes general health and long life. The effects of massage are holistic, benefitting all of our bodily systems and promoting homeostasis. By integrating Kunye massage into our routine of self-care, we can relax in the knowledge that we are supporting our health and promoting long-life. What better motivation for taking the time to regularly receive a great massage?

Kunye is great for us older folks
The classical texts specify that Kunye massage is very beneficial for geriatric people. Older people commonly suffer from a variety of complaints for which Kunye is indicated. This is because Kunye is warming and invigorating. It stimulates blood flow, loosens stiff joints, promotes sleep, benefits digestion and facilitates the memory.

Benefits dry skin and “rough body”
Kunye is great for your skin. Massage with oil hydrates and nourishes the skin and muscles. It stimulates the flow of blood and vital fluids .In Tibetan Medicine when we say “rough body”, this can also mean that the body is depleted and could use some nourishment. Kunye invigorates our strength by stimulating the metabolic heat. Our metabolic heat enables us to properly transform food into healthy bodily substances like the blood, oils and fluids that keep our skin healthy and vibrant. Our strong metabolism also transforms and expels waste products so they do not stagnate and impact our health. That is why healthy digestion and strong metabolic heat are essential for healthy skin and a clear complexion.

Indicated for exhaustion of blood & essence
Chronic fatigue and other long-term health challenges over time can tax our bodily resources. This can deplete the strength of our blood, fluids, and vital essence. The deeply restorative effects of Kunye massage mitigate the harmful toll of stress and fatigue. This is why the classic texts of Tibetan Medicine suggest using Kunye to restore from any condition of fatigue, exhaustion and for recovery from chronic disease.

Soothes anxiety & mental exhaustion
Kunye is very effective for calming anxiety, mental and emotional stress. When we are under stress we experience a rapid increase and agitation of our air element loong energy. We feel all the diverse symptoms of stress and anxiety as our mind drives our nerves into sympathetic mode. In Kunye we work with specific points on the body to balance the loong, calm the mind and nervous system. During stressful times it is ideal to get extra rest and nourishment. Of course this is not always convenient or possible during stressful situations. So taking a little time to receive Kunye is an efficient way to restore and balance your energy in a short time.

Helps relieve insomnia
Our sleep patterns are very much related with the air element loong energy. The loong regulates every aspect of our mental and emotional health. When our thoughts are racing and our minds are over-taxed, the loong energy becomes very agitated. We experience many symptoms from overactive loong, including insomnia. Kunye works directly to calm the loong, and switch our mind out of those stress patterns of over thinking and anxiety. So Kunye massage and gentle therapies are helpful for improving our sleep health.

Clears the sense organs
Applying Kunye, especially to the head and face, can help sharpen and clarify our senses. This method is effective for relieving nasal and sinus congestion. It promotes the healthy flow of blood and fluids to our eyes. It can relieve tensions and stagnations that dull our senses and cloud our minds. Kunye can benefit our digestion and harmonize the flow of loong to our upper body, head and sense organs.

Especially indicated for all disorders of loong energy
Balancing our air element loong energy is essential for health and happiness. In Tibetan Medicine we say that the loong is like a sensitive, crying baby who always needs to be comforted with a little extra care. With its warm and nourishing effects, Kunye functions like a blanket and a bottle to calm the agitation of our air element loong energy. By relieving stress and calming internal agitation, we can get back to laughing, playing and sleeping like a baby.

Conclusion

Maintaining the health and balance of our body, energy and mind is a full-time job. Tibetan Medicine teaches us to always pay attention to our diet and lifestyle to avoid developing long-term problems and optimize our health. We should invest in our “self-care”, listen to our bodies, and develop healthy habits to help ourselves out whenever possible. Kunye massage is an effective tool to support our health and promote long life. Nobody enjoys the effects of stress and fatigue. The good news is, with the rejuvenating, restorative effects of Kunye, we can promote our health and balance in an enjoyable and rewarding way.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE KARDASHIANS?

Maybe it started with the Kardashians the trend not to enhance your looks as you get older through facial rejuvenation but to follow the latest fashion trend, lets start with the lips.

Young women now are looking to use fillers to plump up their lips, even if their lips are perfect which they would be, the plump lips are a must. How can you possibly have the latest designer clothes and handbag without matching lips? Then you have to look at the teeth, they have to be perfect and brilliant white to add contrast to those lips resplendent in the latest bold colours, yes just chisel your perfectly healthy teeth to stubs and face them with veneers.

The problem we have now is that some young women if they don’t have what they consider to be the perfect smile, the perfect lips, they feel second class and in some cases become obsessed about their looks, they in fact creating a caricature of themselves, without realizing it.

In interestingly though I was watching a documentary on TV this week, about the disappearance of the Neanderthals 40,000 years ago and they presented a perfect reconstruction of how they looked. It was very interesting to note that their facial features were almost identical they all looked the same. Also they all had by todays new standards perfect lips (large), looks like they are starting to reappear, especially in Essex?

Yes we know there are women walking around giving the beauty industry a bad name and maybe putting women off having facial rejuvenation, you know what I mean there looks would go well with a bag of chips. However I can recommend Beauty Elite, why because they are experts in the use of fillers so they can enhance your looks, which will be natural and balanced, not looking like you have been sucking on a lollipop for most of your life!

NON SURGICAL FACELIFTS TAKE THAT FIRST STEP HERE

When considering a facelift of any kind, we suggest the key is to pay attention to what has changed in your appearance over the years.

For instance, ask yourself a series of questions:
• Do you have new jowls?
• Are your cheeks falling down creating ‘sausage lines’ around your mouth?
• Is your skin blotchy and pigmented with age spots?
• Do you have frown lines or hollowness under your eyes?

Katharine Hepburn

HOLLYWOOD STARS BEAUTY TRICKS

KATHARINE HEPBURN

A strong-willed actress, Katherine Hepburn had very much her own style – natural, minimalist and slightly androgynous. This meant a lot of neutral tones and flawless skin that allowed her to wear sheer, natural make-up and still look radiant. To keep her complexion in tip-top condition, she would exfoliate regularly. She would use a mixture of sugar, a tiny amount of warm water and a squeeze of lemon juice massaged into the skin and followed up with a splash of ice-cold water.
Forget the lemon juice our treatments here at Beauty Elite will keep your complexion looking flawless.

Joan Crawford

JOAN CRAWFORD

American actress Joan Crawford didn’t use fancy products to keep her legendary face smooth and taut – she chewed gum in the belief that it firmed up her jaw and help to drain the toxins out from under her chin. She was also religious about her cleansing regime, and would splash her face 25 times with ice cold water after every wash.
If you want a firm jaw, we can achieve that so throw away the gum.

Jane Russell

 

JANE RUSSELL

The secret to Jane Russell’s sexy signature style was simple – she always matched her lipstick to her nail polish. The idea of co-ordinating the two was actually only developed in 1939. Legend has it that Revlon founder Charles Revlon was dining in a posh restaurant when he noticed a woman dabbing her mouth with a napkin. He saw that her nail colour jarred with the shade of her lips and a new beauty concept was born.

Talk to us about our semi-permanent make up and let us do your nails.

Marlene Dietrich
MARLENE DIETRICH

German actress Marlene Dietrich is considered to be one of the greatest actresses of all time, but was also highly prized for her sculptured glamour. She believed in accentuating the natural lines of her face with shading, shaping and contouring. One of her most startling features were her perfectly shaped brows. She achieved this look by shaving them off and drawing them on with kohl, as was the fashion in the 1930s. She also never used mascara on her lower lashes, as she believed it cast a shadow and made her look tired.

If you want perfect eyebrows visit us and talk to Lauren about microblading the look is fantastic and semi-permanent

Marilyn Monroe

LET US TURN YOU INTO A HOLLYWOOD STAR

Perfect pouts, bedroom eyes, and glowing skin and lustrous hair – oh how we long to be as glamorous as old school Hollywood sirens! From Marilyn Monroe’s beauty secrets to the retro beauty tips of Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly we at Beauty Elite reveal the fascinating beauty secrets of the classic stars over our next few blogs.

Greta Garbo

GRETA GARBO
Greta Garbo’s dramatic eye make-up was the inspiration for many a Hollywood starlet – including Marilyn Monroe – and not without good reason. To create the look, she would apply a super-thin layer of petroleum jelly over the eyelids, cover with neutral skin-toned powder all the way up to the brow line and blend a dark shade into the crease for a theatrical, deep-set appearance. She’d also line the upper lid with eyeliner made from a blend of petroleum and charcoal pigment, and finish with mascara. Visit us at Beauty Elite ask for Lauren and let her explain to you how we can give you the Greta Garbo look, using the application of semi-permanent make-up and microbrasion.

Vivien Leigh

VIVIEN LEIGH
Stunning British star Vivien Leigh kept her skin spectacularly beautiful with regular facials. The Gone with the Wind actress was among several high-profile clients of Madame Lubatti, a legendary skincare doyenne who hand-mixed scented lotions and aromatic oils to treat English royalty and society ladies.
Get the look with our facial treatments no need to mix them yourself.

Jean Harlow

JEAN HARLOW
Ever wondered where the phrase ‘blonde bombshell’ originated from? Look no further than platinum-haired 1930s starlet, Jean Harlow. Although, she had a rather unorthodox method of obtaining her baby blonde locks – she lightened her hair with a potent mixture of peroxide, ammonia and Lux Flakes (an old fashioned washing powder). We don’t do hair colour treatments but we can give you that Hollywood look.

Sophia Loren

SOPHIA LOREN
Italian screen siren Sophia Loren was stunningly beautiful in her 1960s heyday, and still is now. Her secret? Olive oil. Sophia’s Mediterranean diet ensured that she was able to include at least two tablespoons of the stuff in her food every day, while routinely rubbing a small amount into her skin kept her complexion glossy and moisturized. She even added a few capfuls into a hot bath for a nourishing skin soak. We prefer to use olive oil for cooking but we don’t knock the old ways. Pop in and see us we have other more effective solutions.
