Beat The Heat With Flawless Skin This Summer

             Beat The Heat With Flawless Skin This Summer

Summertime is here in full force – the sun is getting stronger, the days are getting hotter, and your skin is taking the brunt of it all. This is the time when oily skin gets oilier, and dry skin gets drier. Add to it the pimples, rashes, acnes and host of other problems brought on by sweat & grime; and it’s a nightmare for your skin! But, if you follow these simple skincare tips and routines in this gruelling heat, then it’s possible to achieve and flaunt flawless skin this summer!

  • There’s no surviving the summer without a good Sunscreen. Choose a high SPF (preferably over 30) and use generously on your body whenever you are stepping out in the sun. The Arioma Sun Expert SPF 50 is a trusty pick.
  • Your skin needs a light gel-based or water-based moisturizing lotion to combat the dryness and itchiness that can be induced by heat. A good moisturizer or a brightening booster is just what you need to beat the heat.
  • Clean your face of dirt & sweat after a long day by following a cleanse-tone-moisturize skincare routine every night.
  • Don’t forget to use an exfoliating scrub at least twice a week, to get rid of all the sweat, grime and dead cells. Club Salon recommends the Life Radiance Scrub that can help you keep your skin clean this summer.
  • Use a light but effective lip balm to keep your pout hydrated at all times.
  • Wear breathable and natural fabrics so as to reduce sweating as much as possible. Your skin needs to breathe freely, so don’t clog up the pores by wearing heavy fabrics or polyester materials.
  • Hydrate, hydrate and hydrate some more. Keep drinking lots of water, fruit juices and other fluids in order to keep your body hydrated, and your skin glowing, as a result!
  • Keep your feet and hands clean and moisturised at all times. Go for a refreshing fruit-infused pedicure and manicure at your nearest Club Salon at regular intervals for best results.
  • Drop in at your nearest Club Salon outlet for a summer-friendly facial once a fortnight for soft, supple & flawless skin! We recommend the Soothing Harmonies Calm for sensitive skin, Adult Acne facial for skin suffering from breakouts or in need of hydration, and Radiance Glow facial to get rid if the unwanted tans & blemishes.

Follow these everyday tips & tricks to make sure your skin doesn’t bear the brunt of the heat. Club Salon is the place to go to, if you feel the need to re hydrate or brighten up your skin this season. It’s time to enjoy the summer with lemonade, stylish fashion & flawless skin!

 

 

Luxury manicure & pedicure

A luxury manicure & pedicure perfect for the summer! {Review: Club Salon}

 The sweltering summers are here and it looks like the inflation has hit the temperature too – it just keeps on rising. Kolkata, being both hot and humid, has turned into one being mass of panting, sweating population who are waiting for the monsoons with as much bated breath as they wait for the Durga Puja.

In these extreme conditions, the invitation from one of Kolkata’s premier salons, Club Salon, to try out their popular Luxury Manicure & Pedicure, came like a breath of fresh air, albeit a fragrant one at that. Club Salon is one of the largest chains of salons in the city with branches in almost every part and a range of services that will leave you spoilt for choice.

 

I chose to visit the New Alipore address and the salon was spacious, classy and very welcoming. The staff was courteous and in no time, I was seated comfortably, ready to experience one of the best manicures & pedicures till date!

 

The Luxury Mani-Pedi started with a chocolate-flavoured Ice Ball immersed in the basins of warm water that gave out chocolate-coloured fizz and worked its magic on my tired hands & feet. The cleansing process followed with a moisturizing Papaya Nectar body wash. Further exfoliation was done with a yummy-smelling Strawberry Kiwi Sugar Scrub which helps in detoxification too. The pampering message session that followed used a Papaya Nectar Body Icing Crème de Corps with Shea Butter extracts that, coupled with the masseur’s expert hand movements, helped me relax and de-stress wonderfully. Once the message was over, I got a thick layer of Chcocolate & Glycerin Mask brushed on to my hands & feet and left for around 5 mins. Once the mask had worked its magic and helped make my limbs smoother & softer, it was washed off with lukewarm water. My happily pampered feet got a spray of refreshing foot mist and after the finishing touch with some bright nail colors, I not only flaunted a pair of happy feet, but happy hands too!

 

The session took almost one & a half hours and it was some time taken out of my hectic schedule when I could really sit back and relax.

I would totally recommend the Luxury Manicure & Pedicure at Club Salon for a refreshing makeover of your hands & feet this summer. The flavours of products they use are yummilicious and perfect for some summer rejuvenation. But, apart from this service, I would also recommend various other haircare & skincare treatments offered by the salon that are a must-try at any of their numerous outlets around the city.

If you are looking for some good haircare services, don’t miss out on their Kerastase Ritual that’s bound to make your hair soft & smooth. You can also go for the Serioxyl from L’Oreal which is a denser and more intense hair treatment. For very damaged hair, opt for the Profibre treatment which is efficient & helpful.

Looking for some effective skincare treatments? Club Salon is the answer to your beauty woes! Be it the Microneedling from O3 Plus or the Shine & Glow from Agelock, the salon’s various skincare services will give your rejuvenated & glowing skin in no time! For pigmentation problems, try out the Meladem treatment that’ll solve all your skin issues.

POST HOLI CARE

Holi is definitely an colorful festival but it leaves behind a harsh effect on both our skin & hair. So we give you few tips with us you can enjoy this Holi without any guilt. Post Holi care is essential & is important for all age groups.

First lets get started with some easy tips:

Moisturiser :
* Apply a good moisturizer or olive oil to your face, leave it on for 10 mins, take a cotton pad to remove it off and then rinse with cold water.

Condition:
* Use a deep conditioning treatment for your hair. Mix a little hair conditioner with oil, apply it all over your hair and wear a shower cap. Leave it on for 15 mins, rinse off with warm water.

Bleach:
* Use yogurt to remove off the stubborn colour, yogurt has natural bleaching properties, apply natural yogurt on your skin and rinse off.

 

 

Now some very important tips to keep in mind for Post Holi Care:
1. Use liquid soap, applying it very gently on your body. For tough colours, opt for home remedies to deal with it or you can visit a parlour too.

2. Home remedies like applying lemon juice directly on to your skin; curd and sandalwood mixture is great; and you can also make a turmeric and white flour paste, keep it on for 15-20 mins, and then wash it away with non-boiled milk. This mixture can be applied on all areas with colour after making it bit wet with plain water.

3. To clean your face, use olive oil on cotton to remove the Holi colour ‘make-up’, but only after thoroughly washing your face with clean water. Again, opt for home-made scrubs like those using white flour to get rid of the tougher colour stains. You can also use a mild scrub or make a natural sugar scrub.

4. Avoid using exfoliates or bath salts for 48 hours after playing Holi, since your skin will very sensitive.

5. Do not use steam or sauna for the next three days as well, since the body can absorb remaining colour on your skin, as the steam opens up your pores. 

6. Going for a skin facial is a good idea post-Holi, but opt for a medi-facial, which is bleach and steam free and avoids chemicals, that too, only after 48 hours of playing Holi.

Enjoying in this colourful festival is obvious but we have to make sure that the Post Holi Care routine is followed strictly.

Hope you all had a fun and colorful Holi…  

 

 

 

Manicure & Pedicure

Taking care of your feet & hands becomes extremely important, as our face and hands age very quickly unlike the other parts of the body. Everyday we meet several people and we are judged by them according to the way we dress, groom and maintain ourselves. Most importantly our face & hands get noticed, so being in the cycle of regular manicure & pedicure is crucial in today’s world.
Manicure and pedicure not only gives neat and clean hands and feet but it also prevents them from chipping and cracking. The cuticles are applied creams and oils to keep them soft and healthy. During our daily household chores nails get interacted with water which tend to make nails chip or crack. Hand massage through manicure protects the nails from this chipping and cracking.
Regardless of the reason for the beauty treatment, a manicure forces you to take some time for yourself. Nail biters may benefit from a manicure as well, as they may be less inclined, or refrain from biting if they’re looking at their beautiful nails, perfectly polished. Regardless of your excellent health, a manicure program can continue to support your healthy lifestyle. Regularly scheduling manicures will ensure you are free of hangnails, broken skin, dry cuticles, and split fingernails. Any one of these can lead to infection, which can be quite painful and possibily hamper the use of your hands.
Painted toe nails are in abundance in summer months, being shown off in the latest sandals or on the beach. Yet current beauty trends are all about maintenance and grooming, so there are many reasons to keep up with a pedicure habit throughout the winter.
A really great pedicure is not just about painting nails, so it is important to seek out a comprehensive treatment when organizing a regular slot.
  • The best type of pedicure provides a balance between relaxation and manicuring and should leave you feeling tranquil.
  • The nail polish part of the treatment should stand up to at least two to three weeks of wear and ideally only need to be removed when it grows out, rather than when it chips.

Benefits of Manicure and Pedicure:
  1. Helps in remov ing the tan and sun burns on hands and feet .
