A change in the season can play havoc with your skin; with autumn approaching, a drop in temperature happening and central heating getting turned up for cosy nights in, your skin can become dry and stressed.

Fight wrinkles, and pollution damage fast with these natural ceramide supplements…

beauty

Fighting back the wrinkles? Take charge with Seven Seas Perfect7 Renewal Advanced Supplements. Containing omega 3, multivitamins and ceramosides (which contain a natural source of ceramides (molecules in your skin which form 50% of the skins natural moisture barrier) helping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in 60* days)

As pollution levels get higher and other factors like UV rays, blue light from laptops, harsh ingredients and busy lifestyles can put our skin jeopardy on a daily basis – it’s crucial that we take action to make sure our skin is as healthy as it could be.

Ceramides help the skin retain water and ensure it is moisturised, hydrated and looking its best. Being able to supplement your natural levels can really help in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I’m finding even after just 30 days of using the supplements, my skin is plumper and more hydrated day in day out. Of course I make sure to use products with hyuralonic acid in on a daily basis and practice double cleansing along with sleep masks and more, but these have certainly helped within the process. Plus they contribute to your health, with the added Omega 3 and multivitamin boost which is an added bonus because you don’t need to pay our for further dietary supplements on top of these.!

Blast your cellulite, smooth your skin & increase circulation with this fab tool!

beauty

Do you want your skin to appear smoother and to banish signs of cellulite in those notoriously hard to banish areas? Try out The Ashley Black #fasciablaster for amazing results! I had a session with Ashley and her team, demonstrating the tools on my thighs and wow!

Every muscle and structure in your body is enveloped and joined by an interconnected tissue network. This tissue is called fascia, and massaging it with The FasciaBlaster®can provide a number of benefits* including:

Lessening the look of cellulite | Reducing pain | Accelerating muscle recovery | Improving blood flow & Increasing flexibility *Actual results may vary

We didn’t have enough time to do both legs but this gave us a chance to compare a before and after… My masseuse started out with the FaceBlaster, $65 [a small palm size tool with three small prongs] initially to spread the oil across my skin, but then to warm up the tissue and get into the tightly ‘bound’ pockets of fat (I’m not a skinny sausage!) – some areas such as behind the knee and inner knee area were a little delicate to begin with, most likely due to the distribution of fat in those areas. Once this was achieved (generally with long sweeping pressured strokes) he moved onto using the BigDaddy, $124.99, a two handed long tool with six larger claws on. (This one is useful to use on yourself as you an reach most areas well and get a good grip on this too.) With long sweeping strokes he tended to my full thigh and calf area, repeating multiple strokes over and over again.

Afterwards the difference was ever-so noticeable. Where work was only targeted to one area, I could immediately see the definition of my calf muscle better in the leg that was worked on, and an overall smoothness in my skin, much more even and less cellulitey! The most amazing thing is I could feel my circulation in my legs and feet so much – the warmth running through my toes (odd to begin with) but it really helped show the benefits of blasting! You may experience some bruising but this is normal as you are drawing the blood to the surface of the skin!

This whole experience made me want to have Ashley and her team on hand everyday! (who doesn’t love a massage?)
