It’s that time of year again, and it feels like it has come around super quick this year. And we thought it might be useful to offer you come beauty tips to make the most of this festive season.
Whether you are off to the Christmas party and want that extra special look, or just want some protective treatments to keep you skin nice and healthy throughout the bitter winter cold, we here at the Tanning and Beauty Clinic have plenty to offer you.
Let’s begin with the main premise of our name: Tanning.
As the nights get darker and the days get colder, sometimes having a nice summer glow can give you a real pick me up and let’s face it, can really make you feel awesome in the Christmas party dress! We offer both fake and natural tans. With our St Tropez booth, you can get a quick and flawless tan without catching the rays from as little as £10. Fake tans do need a little bit of TLC though so check out our ‘How to get a killer tan and keep it’ blog – trust me, fake tan isn’t always easy, even when someone else is doing it forward, so check out our simple steps for making sure you get the most out of your tan.
If, however, like me, you need a bit of Vitamin D to make you function throughout the winter months, to give your mood a bit of a twist and your skin a nice Mediterranean glow, or maybe you just want to have a few minutes’ respite from the cold. Whatever your purpose, we have two upright tanning booths with 0.3 safety tubes to give you a responsible way to get a lasting tan. From 50p per minute and with courses available, you can get yourself a great summer glow for a low price.
So, for the more practical: Waxing.
If you are getting your heels on for the festive season, or perhaps you are lucky enough to be jetting off to warmer climates, getting a hot wax could be perfect for you. There are many benefits of waxing over shaving, for one, not having to spend what sometimes feels like hours in the shower trying to get into every nook and cranny possibly, only to find that you have missed a patch whilst applying your moisturiser!
To help you with this predicament, we offer high quality hypo allergenic waxing services; from full legs to lip and chin, we can wax anywhere you like, even the most intimate of areas. The benefits of this are reduced irritation and discomfort post treatment which will leave your skin super soft and smooth. Because the wax can work to get a better grip of the hair, it is great for removing short hairs and any ingrown hair, ensuring that you get a great, long lasting finish.
Party Prep – Nails, Eyelashes and More
If, like me, you like to add a bit of something extra to your beauty routine at this time of year, we have lots of beauty treatments to suit you. Whether you like to have a natural enhancement to your already gorgeous features, or you want to go for a dramatic party girl look, we have something for you.
If you want that extra confidence boost, with naturally enhanced eyes the appear more youthful and bright, eyelash extension treatments may be the perfect pre-party prep for you. For a longer lasting look, express party lashes can give you 2-3 weeks of perfect long lashes. If, you want something on the more temporary side, party lashes that last 2-3 days might be preferential, to give your eyes a luscious boost for that festive party.
Wow brows to compliment your lashes may also be something of interest. At this time of year, I find it particularly difficult to find the energy to maintain perfect eyelashes – I’d rather spend an extra fifteen minutes in bed of a morning! With services, such as eyebrow shaping, lifts and tints, you can get a perfect eyebrow game that will last you right through the festive season.
And for those who like to complement their look with the perfect nails – I for one could no longer imagine life without gel nails, our nail experts can help you get flawless nails that shine and last for up to three weeks. Not only this, but regular nail treatments can help your nails become healthier which promotes growth. Particularly during the cold winter weather, looking after your nails can really enhance your look. From manicures, to Gelish to acrylics, we have something to suit your requirements and our friendly staff would be more than happy to give you advice on what might be right for you. We also have a great range of festive colours to compliment any festive outfit!
And so, for dealing with the come down of the party season. The exhausted skin from late nights and falling asleep without removing make up, as well as possibly a little too much prosecco might be desperate for some TLC come 2nd January.
Facials are a great way to help overcome the post-Christmas blues, with a relaxing treatment that can help to detox your skin, deep clean those pores and help your skin feel incredible again. It is also a great way of prepping the skin to help deal with the cold weather and really compliments your regular skin care routine. Not only that but our specially formulated treatments will leave you feeling pampered and relaxed – just what the doctor ordered after a long month of shopping in the freezing cold and overindulging in all kinds of senses! Yes, definitely recommended as a way to recover.
And, if you really overdid it over Christmas, a massage might be the perfect way to unwind. Research has shown that massages can help you to sleep better, destress, deal with any muscular complaints and can even go as far as to relieve anxiety, headaches and any other strain related complaints. Of course, it is also just an amazing way to spend an hour to help you relax and rejuvenate. There are plenty of different styles of massage to choose from too and our staff can help you decide which would be the best for you. This would certainly be my choice for a post-Christmas treatment to help you fight the January blues!
