It’s never too early to start planning for the festive season, especially when it comes to prepping your skin. There are simple skincare treatments, and then there are popular skincare treatments, which give your skin a quick pick-me-up that will leave you radiant and fresh-looking way after the merry season is over.
Beauty treatments trends can be a controversial subject at times, if not shunned in certain circles. Yet we know that most women long to know whether any of them really work. Youth and beauty are a constant craving for a lot of ladies, and having the option to erase the stress and the marks of aging from our faces and bodies is a powerful thing.
When the aging process kicks in, the first place it starts showing is on the face, from wrinkles and fine lines to loss of volume. Different areas of the face can age differently which can most likely be attributed to the shape of your face. I caught up with Dr. Rory McGoldrick, a Dubai-based Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who shed more light on how your face shape ages and what you can possibly do to delay or reverse the process.
It’s a given that although we cannot stop the aging process, we can at least delay the signs including fine lines and wrinkles. Currently, most of us (myself included) are obsessed with topical and minimally invasive anti-aging skin care treatments and products; but recently beauty shots aka anti-aging collagen drinks have become the holy grail of delaying the signs of aging. I have posted about these anti-aging collagen drinks in the past, and I’ll keep on bringing you more as I stumble upon them, to help you decide which one to go for if any, like the Gold Collagen by Minerva Research Labs.
So my partner in crime decided to try out this non-surgical chin reduction treatment; which turned out quite ok. We had it done at our trusted cosmetic clinic aka Dubai Cosmetic Surgery clinic, by Dr Rory, and to my shock; she did not scream as I had expected. Basically this is a non-invasive treatment that uses the injection of sterile cytolytic solution – going by the brand name Supreall – to dissolve and eliminate the appearance of unwanted subcutaneous (localized) fat deposits. She was a bit sore after the treatment, but all’s well now, and we are looking forward to the results.
Some of us prefer natural home-made skincare remedies, while others go for factory-made cosmetics and skincare procedures by a skin specialists. Me, as usual, I always work with what’s working. And that’s why in this post I’m sharing with you a few DIY face masks that will leave your skin feeling fresh and glowing.
Most of us, if not all, are always looking for that natural beautiful skin. Some opt for cosmetics, others choose top skincare herbs, and I work with whatever’s working. For those who choose to go the Mother Nature route, I have compiled a couple of skincare herbs that can take your skin from dull to wow. And if you are wondering if you’d rather ingest your herbs than use them on your skin, worry not because you can still do both.
With almost everything having an organic version, it’s no surprise that there are now organic dermal fillers. I came across them during my laser hair removal session at my currently favorite cosmetics clinic in Dubai.
Last time I wrote about dermal fillers, I was telling you all about them and how they work. Lucky for me, I managed to track down Dr Juan Tadeo Krogulec, a specialist plastic and reconstructive surgeon, who agreed to share with me information on these organic dermal fillers.
