Bizarre Beauty: Unusual Treatments To Try Out This Summer


The world of beauty is evolving and always changing. With advances in science and the discovery of unusual and exotic ingredients, beauty lovers and those concerned with aging have always got new treatments to try out and test. Here are just a few of the weird and wonderful beauty treatments you can currently get to improve your appearance and pamper yourself.

Vampire Facial
A facial involving blood sounds a little scary, but it’s actually far less invasive than many cosmetic treatments as you don’t go under the knife. Instead, your own blood is injected into your face. The science behind it is that it uses a technique called platelet-rich (or ‘PR’) plasma therapy. Using PR for facial aesthetics is useful as it causes the tissues to rapidly make more collagen, which is of course good news when you want to look younger. There’s little to no recovery time needed, and you could be in and out of the clinic in the hour.

Gold Facials
If the sound of your own blood doesn’t appeal, how about a facial with glittering gold? The material can stimulate collagen leaving your skin tighter, reduces fine lines and activates the renewal of cells. So as well as leaving you feeling fresh it can also make you look younger and more luminous. It’s applied as a gold leaf or mask after carefully cleansing the skin. Of course it’s not a cheap option, but again less than plastic surgery!

Insect Secretions
From bee venom to snail slime, it turns out that insects have held the key the fountain of youth all along. Most common in Asian skincare, these ingredients are becoming more and more popular in the west too. Bee venom has been likened to Botox due to it’s tightening and muscle lifting properties, whereas snail secretions are useful for moisturising, improving acne and the appearance of fine likes. Kind of disgusting but just don’t overthink it- your skin will thank you for it!


Garra Rufa Fish Pedicures
Less than a decade ago, garra rufa fish pedicures were seen as incredibly wacky and unusual. These days you can find them in tonnes of spas and salons, although admittedly it is still a strange concept. The tiny toothless fish nibble dead skin cells from your feet and stimulate blood flow leaving them soft and smooth with no pain whatsoever. They’re thought to remove bacteria, foot odour and improve circulation so have a number of benefits. Just be sure you’re going to a decent spa with a high hygiene rating, otherwise just as with any beauty treatment you put yourself at risk of infection. ‘Backstreet beauty salons’ have even been known to use the wrong type of fish- use a type that has teeth and it will be painful and can spread disease.

Have you tried anything unusual in the name of beauty? What do you think the weirdest treatment is on this list, and would you be brave enough to give it a try?

How to make perfect eyebrows

 Sprancenele mele sunt destul de rare si oricat am incercat sa le fac frumoase si dese nu am reusit. Chiar daca am un machiaj reusit, daca sprancele nu sunt accentuate, ceva lipseste si pare in neregula per total. Fardurile de sprancene nu sunt intocmai preferatele mele desi stiu ca multe fete le prefera. Astazi vreau sa va arat un gel pentru sprancene achizitionat recent, care-mi place foarte mult : DipBrow gel de la Anastasia Beverly Hills. Este un gel de sprancene pigmentat, are acoperire buna, eu aplic putin produs si pentru mine este suficient, este rezistent la apa - dupa cateva minute de la aplicare nu se mai ia usor, nu curge,  si ofera un aspect natural si mat sprancenelor. Vine in varianta mini si full size, eu am luat varianta mini si il folosesc de cateva luni, insa nu zilnic. Dar este genul de produs care rezista destul de mult. Periuta face aplicarea foarte usoara, poti chiar sa dai putin forma sprancenelor cu ea. Dar se poate achiziona separat orice perie de sprancene

Today, this  beneficial compound is present in various products, ranging from cookies to nasal sprays to even  burgers. Given its numerous advantages, there is no doubt that the oil will keep growing in popularity in  the future.

Unlike THC, which is the other  primary compound in Cannabis, CBD is not psychoactive. This means that it does not alter the working  of the brain to produce a “high” as THC does. It does, however, affect various body processes to alleviate  certain conditions. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that the cannabis plant has been used for   medicinal purposes since 750 B.C . Well, here are three key benefits you stand to gain by using CBD oil.   CB

Cum aleg lumanarile parfumate

 Buna frumoaselor, Astazi va vorbesc despre lumanarile mele parfumate preferate , Yankee Candle  . Fiind o amatoare de  lumanari parfumate , apropiatii stiu asta si de multe ori primesc si de la ei lumanari de la diverse branduri insa sincer va spun ca pana acum nici un brand nu m-a impresionat mai tare decat Yankee Candle. O fi din cauza mirosului persistent, a aromelor si formelor diverse pe care le au lumanarile lor sau poate le asociez eu cu amintiri frumoase pe care le am. Cand am musafiri, pe langa curatenie, gatit, mereu aprind si o lumanare cu o ora inainte sa ajunga, astfel incat prima impresie pe care o au cand intra in casa sa fie una placuta. Mereu am apreciat o casa cu un miros frumos. Sa stiti ca am observat de-a lungul anilor ca pana si casa/locuinta in care stai are un anumit miros, la fel si hainele. Si de multe ori cand simt un miros asemanator ma duce cu gandul la acele persoane.  Poate nu toti oamenii sunt asa dar eu sunt, fiind avida de parfumuri, mirosuri frumoase
