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!

Colour Your Hair This Season

           

                                        Colour Your Hair This Season!

A person’s hair is something that contributes largely to the way he or she looks. In books or movies, disguises always primarily consist of wigs – a blonde one for a dark-haired person, or a redhead wig for a blonde. Hence, a change in the hair color means an exciting new change in your entire look. Coloring your hair is a fun way of jazzing up your entire appearance, with just a small tweak. If you are new to the whole idea of giving your original hair color a stylish makeover, then here are some techniques in which you can embrace new hair hues! So Colour Your Hair This Season!

All about Ombre

Ombre, in French, means “color that is shaded or graduated in tone”. This is a haircolor technique where a darker color gradually changes into a lighter shade in a short transition. This style typically makes your hair darkest at the roots, which slowly transitions into lighter hues at the ends. You can choose to make the style as dramatic or as subtle as you want, depending upon the number of shades you pick and the skills of your colorist. It looks edgy on all kinds of hairstyles, but the tonal spectrum comes off best on longer hair.

Big on Balayage

As per the original meaning of the French word Balayage, the technique means “to sweep” the hair with color. This technique results in a longer transition between the lighter & darker hues, and the outcome is more natural. The colorists can unleash their inner artist while working on this style, and play around with how they want to paint the hair with the soft freehand brush strokes required in Balayage. Since there is no foil-wrapping involved in the process, the hair color works naturally in open air, and hence the resulting effect doesn’t need any high maintenance either.

Happiness is… Highlights

Shy of going for an all-out change in hair color? Well, Highlights are a great way of adding a dose of fun in your hair hue without you having to take that dramatic step! You can add the illusion of depth & dimension to your tresses by lightening strategic sections of your hair using this technique. The colorist traditionally uses foil to separate parts of the hair to create contrasting sections to your natural hair color. You can either go for color that is a few shades lighter or a different tone altogether to get bold highlights, or pick a hue that’s closer to your natural hair color for a softer contrast.

For the love of Per Foil

This is the perfect technique to choose if you want just touch-ups or to color only a little section of your hair (maybe to overcome that first time jitters?). The Per Foil treatment costs you according to the number of parts you want to color, or the number of foiled sections used in the process. The foil strips keep the color or lightener out of the rest of your hair, while also trapping the heat inside so that the dye works more effectively.

So, it’s time to stop procrastinating and start planning which hue to dress up your tresses in! Visit your nearest Club Salon outlet and choose from one of the renowned global hair color brands like Inoa or Majirel to add some gorgeous color to your hair & give yourself a trendy makeover this season!

Facials

           

                                                           Facials

Skin care is a two-way process. As much as what one eats and drinks reflect upon the skin, it is imperative to take regular care of it from the outside. Apart from regular Cleansing-Toning-Moisturizing, healthy skin also demands Facial treatments at regular intervals, ideally after every twenty to twenty-five days.

One of the main elements in a Facial is the massage which activates blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. It also helps relax muscles, thus delaying the ageing process. Choosing the right kind of facial is essential because the treatment and products needs to be in sync with one’s skin type. Regular facials can help even out the skin tone, unclog pores, minimise ageing and rejuvenate the skin.

Club Salon has a wide range of facial treatments, each customized to specific skin types.

Club Salon, with their high-end infrastructure and well-trained therapists, takes skin-care to a whole new level.

Before the Facial, a thorough skin-analysis is done, using magnifying LED lamp and moisture meter, based on which the type of treatment is determined.

Their facial range by Decleor and O3+ covers almost all skin types. While there are plenty of face treatments to choose from, the main purpose of most facials is to thoroughly clean your skin, rid it of impurities and feed it with vitamins, minerals and nutrients such as vitamins A, C, and E—a process that brings other benefits and will leave your complexion refreshed and radiant.

Some of the suggested Facials for different skin types:

  • Ultra calm facial or Decleor soothing harmonie calm: Sensitive skin
  • Breakout facial or Adult Acne facial: Acne or pimple prone skin
  • Ultrasonic Caviar Anti Ageing / Decleor Aromaplastie Lift: Ageing skin
  • Dermalzone Radiant / Decleor Hydrating Hydra floral: Dry or Dull skin

The Facial treatments are priced within a range of INR 3000 to INR 5000.

When it comes to skin-care, consistency is important. With consistent facial treatments, one’s complexion will appear brighter, even-toned and more streamlined. Skin will be softer and glowing, enhanced with increased cell renewal, the key to a youthful look. 

 

 

Decléor Aurabsolu Ritual

 Decléor Aurabsolu Ritual At Club Salon, Alcove Gloria

Decléor, the French skincare brand was founded in 1974 by Solange Dessimoulie whose philosophy was “to feel good in your body and soul, to feel good in your own skin. Today, the Decléor philosophy is to harness the power of nature to address urban life challenges that have an impact on the skin, body and mind.  Decléor products and rituals are acclaimed world over and now, they are available in Kolkata courtesy Club Salon who have introduced these rituals at three of their luxury outlets – Alcove Gloria, Sarat Bose Road, New Alipore and Axis Mall. I tried out the Decléor Aurabsolu Ritual at the Alcove Gloria, VIP Road outlet and in this post, I am sharing my experience. Read on to find out. 

Decléor Aurabsolu Ritual

After I reached the salon, I was asked a few questions by the therapist about my skin and I completed a questionnaire. Based on the answers, I was recommended Aurabsolu, a ritual that targets tired and stressed skin. Decléor Aurabsolu rituals are available in three variants – Petit Ritual for 30 mins, Experience Ritual for 60 mins and Signature Rituals for 90 mins. Aurabsolu is a 30 min ritual.

Pushing the boundaries of Aromatherapy skincare, we have discovered the magic in unlocking tired looking skin and allowing it to glow from the early morning until dusk. Introducing Aurabsolu – targeting tired and stressed skin for modern skincare concerns. Using the very purest form of Jasmine Absolute, Aurabsolu awakens skin and reveals a new radiance; skin is imbued with freshness and vitality and its glow is restored.

 

I was provided with a disposable gown and after changing, asked to lie down on the bed. The therapist started off by cleansing my face with a cleanser that has neroli extracts followed by the application of a skin tonic. This was an alcohol-free tonic also containing neroli extracts. The next step was the application of Reflet de Purete, a deep cleanser that not only cleanses but also exfoliates the skin mildly. Purete contains essential oils so it smells great and the product goes deep down into the pores to remove all traces of dirt and grime. My skin immediately felt a lot softer and hydrated. 

What followed after the cleansing was pure bliss. Lights were dimmed and as the therapist started with the back and arms massage, light music started to play and then a soothing voice filled the room like flavored incense. This is a special recording which is played during the rituals where the voice asks you to smell the oil, encourages you to deep breathe and inhale the goodness of the oil, to let go of the tension and just slip into deep relaxation mode. I could feel the knots loosening up and I must have dozed off for a few minutes as well. 

 

After the massage, the Aurabsolu hydrogel mask was applied for about 10 minutes. This sheet mask is infused with an expert blend of essential oils and Jasmine Absolute, ideal for use as a booster treatment when skin has been exposed to stress or is showing signs of fatigue to restore luminosity and a refreshed appearance. The final step of the ritual was lympathic drainage using a Neroli hydrating night balm. Using her expertise,  the therapist gently applied pressure to certain points on my face and used a lymphatic drainage technique to remove toxins from within. I could feel the blood going to my skin and felt a sense of bliss. 

During the ritual, I felt like I was in an aromatherapy cocoon and I did not want to get out of it. Those 30 minutes were absolute bliss and not only my face but my body and mind felt so relaxed and refreshed. This is what my skin looked a couple of hours after the ritual. I have no makeup on except kajal.

Kerastase Hair Ritual

                                                          Kerastase Hair Ritual

My love for a long mane has been since forever. Though I have managed to grow my hair to a desired length, pollution, stress and multiple chemical treatments have damaged the quality to a great extent. Added to that, repeated hairstyling and hair products has literally converted my hair to jute. It was almost like a boon when I came across the Kerastase Ritual at Club Salon.

Club Salon, an exclusive hub for Hair, Skin and Makeup has a wide range of treatments which include the Kerastase Hair Ritual, Serioxyl from L’Oréal (a denser hair treatment) and the Profiber for very damaged hair. The Skin treatments include the Microneedling from O3 plus, Meladerm treatment for pigmentation, Shine & Glow from Agelock and the Decleor Facials.

I went for the Kerastase Hair Ritual (Express) at their Sarat Bose Road salon. It would be necessary to mention that I had styled my hair the day before which left my hair heavily tangled, dry and lifeless. The Kerastase Ritual is carried out in a special Hair & Scalp Institute in the Salon, also known as the Kerastase room.

 

The ritual started with my therapist, diagnosing my hair with a special device. The diagnosis consisted of a scalp diagnosis followed by a fibre diagnosis. The device was connected to my therapists’ phone where I could follow the diagnosis along with him. As expected, my hair was extremely damaged with almost the highest erosion level.

My hair was first untangled and washed with the Kerastase Fibre Architecte Shampoo followed by Ciment Thermique shampoo. Since my hair fibre has thinned, I was suggested products that would strengthen it. The next step was the Fusio Dose. It is a Booster Brilliance by Kerastase which restores the radiance and shine of the hair. My hair was treated with the booster dose and locked using the Lait Vital conditioner which stayed for 15-20 minutes post which the products were rinsed off. Finally my therapist used the Fibre Architecte serum and my hair was blow dried.

My hair was visibly softer and shinier. In fact I felt a reduction hair breakage as well. I was advised the Fusio Dose after 15 days to retain the effect and also strengthen my hair. The Kerastase Hair Ritual is indeed quite interesting and miraculously improves the hair quality to a great extent even after one session. I would highly recommend this.

Luxury Hairspa

For every women hair care is a must. And no matter how much you take care of your hair at home by applying oil, conditioner and so many other things,I  feel a pampering session for your hair at the salon is a must at times. A Luxury Hairspa at a salon completely changes the way your hair feels.

My hair has recently become extremely dry, frizzy an dull and a hair spa was long due. And just then I was invited by Club Salon to experience one of their Luxury Hairspas. And who would say a no right. So on a sunny afternoon a delighted me visited the CLUB SALON, Bosepukur branch to get my much awaited hair spa.

The salon was simple, clean and very sophisticated. I was greeted warmly by the staff at Club Salon and after assessing my hair type and condition my therapist told me the Vertilizing Hair Spa of LOREAL would be perfect for me. all the pampering started in a bit.

First my hair was shampooed with the Loreal spa shampoo and then conditioned. Shampooing at a salon always feels better just because of the extra time and care they take to wash all the dirt and grime off your hair.

After that I was seated comfortably and the actual spa started. My therapist told me I have a lot of dust accumulated in my scalp(a common thing for all women leaving in mega cities). So she used a Purifine first which would help to remove the dust from my hair and the she used the vitalizing cream for dry and dull hair. With utmost care she sectioned all my hair and applied the cream to the entire hair and then massaged it in for almost 30 minutes. She massaged the entire scalp perfectly for the product to soak in.She also gave me a quick shoulder and back massage which completely made me feel relaxed and rejuvenated. After the massage it was time for the steam.So my hair was covered with a shower cap and the steamer was placed. This is to ensure the product penetrates better into your scalp.And finally my hair was washed. I could already sense how light and soft my hair was feeling.

My therapist then blow dryed my hair and styled it amazingly. I was truly mesmerized by the results. My hair was back to life and felt extremely soft and beautiful. It was an amazing experience at the CLUB SALON & I was also told about some basic hair care tips I should follow to maintain my hair at home.

The entire Luxury Hairspa is for about and hour or so and after the treatment you will clearly understand the difference.

I was extremely satisfied with the therapy and needless to say a completely de-stressed and happy me left the salon with extreme satisfaction. I have made up my mind to visit the Club salon every month and give my hair the daily dose of nourishment and care.

I would totally recommend to Club salon to all of you who are planning to get a wonderful hair spa. You can select from the wide range of therapies the salon has to offer and Im sure you won’t be disappointed.

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.
