BRAZILIAN Q&A


With the warmer weather approaching, the need to shed the extra fur becomes more pressing. If you have not already embraced the Brazilian Wax Culture, then it's time to jump on the bandwagon.For those who are serious addicts, they cannot go back to a standard bikini line.

For the novices, here's some more information about the Brazilian Wax Rave... Please note that feeling relaxed and comfortable with your therapist makes the appointment a breeze.

 


What is a Brazilian waxing?                                  

bikiniready.JPG - large


An authentic  Brazilian Wax is when waxing is done over the labia area and into the bottom,  leaving a fine landing strip or no hair at all at the front.

The pubic line is also brought down.


Is Brazilian Waxing very painful?


Let's say it's not a walk in the park but rest assured, it is nearly painless with the techniques that we used in salon. If you have been shaving for a long time and this is is your first brazilian waxing, you may feel a bit more pain than others depending on your pain threshold. Remember No Pain, No Gain.

 

Do I have to be on all fours for Brazilian Waxing?


This will be a very awkward position, sorry but no Kama Sutra position at Flawless Beauty Concept. We specialise in Brazilian waxing, so it is  is done in a very professional way using high quality wax with soothing properties and maximum comfort.

 

What do I do after a Brazilian Wax?

 

The best aftercare is as follows:

  1. Use a daily tea tree based antiseptic lotion to hydrate the skin.
  2. One week after your waxing has been done, gently exfoliate the skin with an exfoliating  mitt or glove 2-3 times a week.( Avoid natural loofah as bacteria tend to thrive in natural fibres)
  3. Wearing cotton undies just after your treatment and avoid skintight undies when the hair is growing back helps reduce friction and cause less ingrown hairs in those areas.
  4. Due to your hair type, you can be more prone to ingrown hair than others. Ask our therapist about our “Gold Bikini Saver” cream which is efficient in counteracting stubborn ingrown hair.
  5. Do not swim in chlorinated pools, go to the gym or visit a solarium straight after a wax. Please wait for at least 24 hours.
  6. Avoid picking at ingrown hair as it looks unappealing and may cause scarring. The home use of the “Gold Bikini Saver” Cream and professional removal is recommended.
  7. Don’t shave between your waxing appointments as it will distort your hair growth cycle.

 

 With brazilian waxing, you can wear that itsy bitsy teeny weeny bikini with total confidence.


 

beautiful-skin.jpg - largeSpring Skin Gym to unleash your skin's true potential...

Like a cherry blossom blooming in Spring, this is the ideal time to start your Skin Gym. Winter has already done its damage with your skin feeling dry or deeply dehydrated with constantly hanging around sources of heat, low humidity and drinking less water & more vino.  


What are some of those symptoms?

  • Some areas of flaky patches
  • Rougher texture to the touch
  • More whiteheads/ blackheads due to asphyxiating the skin with heavy moisturiser
  • Dull complexion due to a lack of healthy glow.                                                                     

How many of you can relate to the above? If any of those symptoms is totally resonating with you, then it is truly time to gear up with your skin fitness gloves and punch away your dull skin.

 

“Oh no, I don’t have time” is the biggest excuse that kills your motivation before you even start. We all know that the journey of a thousand miles start with one single step. What will that first step be for you? 

 

Will it be buying plus using a great skincare product that will help to slough away that build up of dry skin from the winter months? Or will it be investing in a professional salon treatment that will totally give your skin that initial much needed workout?

 


Buying a great skincare product 

 

What will be the best product to punch some life into your skin?

  • Buy a product that does contain some great  active ingredients like AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acids or Fruit Acids). It could be a daily cleanser, a lotion /serum that you can leave on your skin before you apply your moisturizer, an enzyme Mask that you can apply once a week to freshen the skin. 
  • There are a lot of choices on the market and our advice is to go with products that have got no added nasties like artificial fragrances, parabens, mineral oils and other petrochemicals. and the ingredients, though highly active, are not too harsh for your skin. Remember, you want to unleash your skin’s best not cause additional trauma especially if you do suffer from sensitive skin.

 


Booking in for a professional salon treatment

 

ManFacial.jpg - small

 Based on our client's feedback, the  majority  admits that it makes an amazing  difference to  have that initial salon treatment  as it instantly  rejuvenates your skin. We are  talking about  microdermabrasion session and  light fruit acid  peel - a great way to kickstart  your skin  workout.

 

 How does it work to banish all that dull winter  skin? Here are some options for every need  and budget:

 

  1. For a deep exfoliation plus lymphatic  drainage to achieve that for that polished  look, a microdermabrasion is the ideal choice.

 

  2. Looking to brighten your skin with a dewy  appearance? Add a dose of fruit acid peel for  that extra boost & tightening effect.


 3. For that great hydration boost after the winter months, try a hydrating therapy like Oxygen  Facial.


4. LED light therapy help to stimulate, heal or decongest the skin depending on the light being used.


With so many choices available, it can get confusing.  That’s where a great skincare therapist that understands your individual skin type and the results you are after, will work with you to meet your specific needs. 

 

What are you waiting for? Spring into action, punch away that dull skin and unleash your skin’s true potential. Flawless Beauty Concept specialises in helping both women and men to put their best face forward while motivating confidence and well being on the inside.

 


 


 

Mum's The World


Our "MUM" means the world to us! At any age, Mum is the one that holds that very special place in our heart. She's the woman of so many talents... 


Psychic Reader- One deep look in our eyes and she uncovers the secrets to our soul, no more hidden games.

Communication Expert -she knows our body language so well even when we try to put up that strong front and act like everything is going well.

Fine-tuned Musician - she knows our true feelings no matter how hard we try to have that joyous tone of voice.



mothersday1.jpg - large


She is the one to whom we bare our soul because we know she's not judging our vulnerability.

She always has a great listening ear and the most comforting arms. She loves us for who we are and that unconditional love is priceless.


For lots of us, our Mums are so closeby that we tend to take it for granted at times.

For some of us, there are thousands of miles of ocean in between us and we appreciate every moment together as if it is the last.

For a few of us,we do not have the privilege of sharing the same planet with our Mum and we relive the best moments through our cherished memories.


Have you been too busy lately to tell your Mum how much you really love her? Then stop, take the time to rock up at her doorsteps, give her a call, facetime or skype her, write her a card or an email and let her know how you truly feel. We do not need "Mother's Day" to celebrate our Mums... 

 

Please take a moment to let us know what your Mum means to you. Go on our Facebook page and leave us a comment. We would love to hear from you. Caring is sharing...

Bright Lips - Makup Tips on how to have a great pout with colour that laredlips.jpg - largests...


Bright colours such as vivacious red, bold plum, hot fuchsia and luscious orange paired with flawless skin and a sweep of metallic eyeshimmer- we just love that classic look...

How to wear these bright colours in total confidence

and maintain a great pout at all times can be tricky.


Here's some makeup tips that will make sure that you do not have to reapply your favourite colour every five minutes 

 

1. Exfoliate your lips

Gentle exfoliation is key to get rid of the dry skin and dead skin cells that can be so irritating especially at this time of the year.

 

2. Prime your lips

Applying a soft coat of lip balm will ensure a smooth surface for your lipstick to cling onto and to be longer lasting. This is especially great as it also helps to prevent further dehydration caused by the drying agents present in some long lasting lip products.

 

3. Use a lip liner

Yes, a lip liner is the magic wand that will ensure that your sexy pouts still have colour even when your lipstick starts to fade. Lip liners are great to prevent your lip colour from bleeding outside your lips. Just make sure that your lip liner is following the natural outline of your lips. For a fuller pout, apply your lip liner just on the outer edge of the lip. Softly blending in the lip liner on the entire lips makes your lip colour more intense.

 

4. Time to apply your lipstick

Apply a first coat of your favourite lipstick. Blot in between and apply a second layer followed by a second blot. How to blot? Place a tissue in between your lips and press them together.

 

5. Finish with a lip gloss

This is optional as you may prefer a matte finish but a juicy lip gloss always helps to pimp your lips. Applying a dot of shimmer gloss in the middle of your bottom lip results in plumper lips whereas  dabbing just a touch of gloss will give your lips a beautiful soft sheen. And if you feel that the juicier the better, then be more generous with your gloss application.

 

Et voila, time to put it to the test...Let's sip on some Martinis.

Essential vitamin nutrition for flawless, beautiful skin is as easy as A..B..C!

While we all strive for a flawless, healthy complexion not many of us know the essential Vitamin nutrition needed to achieve beautiful skin.
But don't worry, it as easy as ABC because the essential vitamins are just that: Vitamins A, B and C!
Here's a rundown of how these three essential nutrients nurture and replenish our complexions:

Vitamin A (Retinol)
Vitamin A accelerates the process of shedding dead skin cells, which is great as it helps shed pigmented cells quickly leading to a brighter and more luminous complexion. Retinoids in Vitamin A also inhibit tyrosinase, the enzymes responsible for melanin synthesis. Overall, Vitamin A is a key ingredient to create change in the epidermal and dermal layer of the skin.

Vitamin B Group
Full B-complex with Niacinamide(B3) is a ceramide stimulator and dramatically improves the hydration of the skin by preventing transepidermal water loss. It is also anti-inflammatory, soothing, regulates sebum and is a melanin transfer inhibitor. B3 is has also been proved to prevent the immunosuppression of key cells, the Langerhan cells in the skin by UV radiation.

Vitamin C
Vitamin C should be used daily to protect and promote cell strength. It is a great anti-oxidant, provides powerful protection against free radical damage and is also a collagen stimulator ads it improves protein synthesis such as collagen and elastin. It is proving great to boost radiance to the skin and  to fade pigmentation.

 

Just make sure that the concentration of those pure active vitamins is high enough to protect, nurture and cosmetically restructure your most precious asset, your skin. 

Well our exclusive offer will give you the benefits of both great savings combined with quality beauty experiences delivering great results. 


And if you are feeling guilty to spoil yourself, this where I ask you to consider- and be honest with yourself- How much happier do you feel after experiencing an amazing beauty experience?

Summer Beauty!

 

Looking great for summer can be so effortless...MakeUpFBC8.JPG - large

 

Let's begin with great nails...Shellac has been all the crave since summer starts!

 

With a juicy array of colours to choose from, how can you resist having natural looking nails with chip- free extended wear that last 2-3 weeks?  The bonus of Zero drying time, resilient high shine & no damage to your natural nails seal the deal and make it one of the most popular nail services for summer.

 

And the next on the list is the Smooth " All Off" Brazilian waxing ... Move over Bikini Line wax! 

 

Ladies, having brazilian wax done comfortably and professionally with a nearly painless experience is an experience on its own especially if you are new to the Brazilian fanclub. The temperature of the wax, the type of wax used and the techniques used play a very important role. And please no Kamasutra for brazilian waxing ... 

What differs a 3x to a 4x is that tiny landing strip but the feeling after it's done is priceless!

 

This is the type of freedom that makes you wear the sexiest bikini without any worry and sure to bring a smile to your face.
