Beat those winter blues

Beating the winter blues

As we go through the coldest time of the year especially as we prepare for Christmas, our nights are longer and we start the countdown for the summer! So it’s not surprising that we start to feel those winter blues set in. Over the last few weeks, we have been chatting to our clients & discussing remedies to help us through the winter months.

So here are our top 5 favourites for an instant pick me up

 1. Dose up on vitamin D:

Possibly the most powerful remedy, so we decided to put it as our number one! 1 in 5 people in the UK are low in vitamin D, vitamin D comes from a chemical reaction in our body derived from the sun so it’s no surprise this number rises during winter. Symptoms such as tiredness, aches & pains as quite a common start to the winter blues and generally not feeling well. So a top up of vitamin D in a daily tablet is just what you need, studies show that after taking one tablet a day you feel more alert, less tired and generally brighter.

We found these powerful vitamins are the perfect supplement, as they contain a high dose of vitamin D and the tiny tablets are easy to take 🙂

 2. Book a holiday:

Do we need to say anymore on this one, book some time away to just relax and read a good book you will come back feeling refreshed and relaxed ready to celebrate Christmas or maybe just after Christmas, something else to look forward to as you approach January, throughout the year we offer a wide range of beauty treatments to prep you for your holiday

 3. Exercise:

Being outside in the fresh air and natural light is a great way to make you feel better during the cold winter months, swimming is great for toning, going for a light run or brisk walk for just 30 minutes a day is all you need.

Or for those of you that don’t want to exercise outside or have limited time then we have found the perfect at home workout for you, Yoga with Adriene (Yoga Camp) is a great way to work out at home without going to the gym. Adrienne’s relaxed approach is a great introduction to your yoga practice:

This goes hand in hand with exercise, but it is so true that you are what you eat.

Lipocontrast


No matter how much diet and exercise we do, sometimes we are left with certain areas of fat that we can not shift! Imagine if you could pinpoint a certain stubborn area of fat that you would like to lose. Well, now you can….

We’ve been so excited to tell you about this new treatment. Let me introduce you to LipoContrast – the most advanced body sculpting treatment in the beauty industry.

Whether it is in time for a holiday or to feel body confident, every year millions of people undertake a weight loss journey, but many find that it is a lifelong battle of trying to get rid of stubborn, excess fat in certain areas.  LipoContrast is the most effective non-invasive fat reduction treatment to enter the Aesthetic and Beauty industry.  The revolutionary treatment has been scientifically developed over numerous years, proving superior to simply cooling or heating the fat cells, LipoContrast does both!

Fat in our body doesn’t increase or decrease, in fact, we are all born with the same amount of fat cells, it just expands depending on what we eat and our activity levels. Puberty is responsible for deciding on where our fat cells will be deposited, hence our different body shapes; apple, hourglass, pear etc. Stages in our lives that can affect our body such as pregnancy can shift the fat cells around our body too and these changes are caused through the changing of estrogen levels.

How can LipoContrast help you?

For some people, they find it difficult to shift or reduce certain fat, despite regular exercise and healthy dieting. Common problem areas include the lower stomach, on the arms and the inner thighs.

The LipoConstrast machine uses a combination of heat and cooling therapy to alter the fat cells in our stubborn areas, turning the fat cells into a liquid form and making the cells unrecognizable to our body. This lead to the fat cells being flushed away through our lymphatic system forever!

Around 30% of the results can be seen instantly after treatment with optimum results taking around 2-3 weeks to be visible.

With no ‘down’ time, you can resume your usual daily activities after your appointment and will not prevent you from going to work. One area can be treated up to 3 times at 4-week intervals.

Continuing a healthy lifestyle is key alongside these treatments and is the best way to achieve optimum body sculpting results.
