Myth: Anti-ageing treatments and products need to be used once the signs of ageing become apparent.
Truth: Typically the right time to start anti-ageing treatments is between the ages of 25 to 30 years, before major signs of ageing become evident. Treatments such as Venus FreezeTM and Venus LegacyTM will help keep wrinkles and sagging skin at bay.
Myth: Acne is not related to your diet.
Truth: Recent studies show that acne is related to your diet, in particular cows milk and sugar (partly caused by androgens and insulin). Dairy boosts male sex hormones and spikes insulin levels; controlled trials have found that cow’s milk increased chances of acne.
What are the new-age quick fixes for brides?
Super Facials are revolutionising the age-old process of facials by using technology and the finest products, blended to create a unique treatment. The HydraFacialTM is loved by celebrities such as Paris Hilton and considered a pre-Oscars must.
How do you recommend brides achieve that sustaining glow?
Diet is very important for achieving a long-term glow. Antioxidants help cleanse our body from within by getting rid of free radicals in our system. Some excellent treatments are the Crystal TomatoTM, a revolutionary once-a-day antioxidant made from rare white tomatoes. Glutathione is another super antioxidant given as an in-patient procedure. Brides should have a schedule of regular clean-ups, fruit acid peels, Super Facials such as HydraFacialTM and Geneo +TM that help exfoliate and keep the skin feeling supple and smooth from the outside.
