The job. The kids. The house. With so much on your plate, it’s easy to get stressed out–and–neglect your own overall well-being. Here are 10 ways to pamper yourself from Bellava MedAesthetics & Spa, in Bedford Hills, where we offer a variety of beauty and services to help you relax, revive and renew both your appearance and spirit.
10. Get bronzed with A “healthy” spray tan.
Spray tans are the healthy way to get a rich, bronzed appearance year-round. Like magic, you can get a perfect all-over tan in just 5 minutes that can last up to 10 days.
9. Out with the old, in with the new makeup.
Makeup doesn’t last forever. In fact, it becomes a breeding ground for bacteria once it expires. As a rule of thumb, mascara and other eye makeup usually expires after three months, whereas foundation, concealer and lip color typically lasts about one year. So, go ahead, treat yourself to a top quality designer makeup line, such as YSL or Edward Bess.
8. The eyes have it. Get celebrity
Nothing makes your eyes pop more than expertly shaped and tinted brows and lashes. If you’ve never indulged in this before, discover how beautiful eyebrows and lashes will frame your eyes for a more alluring appearance.
7. Glow from head to toe with a luxury body wrap.
A body wrap can eliminate toxins, polish skin and revitalize your entire body. This classic traditional spa treatment is a truly wonderful gift to give yourself, allowing you to both relax and luxuriate.
6. Obtain a more refreshed appearance with Botox and fillers.
Nothing can wipe away wrinkles as quickly and painlessly as Botox (softens forehead lines and frown lines) and dermal fillers (softens smile and marionette lines). In fact, these anti-aging procedures can take 10 years off your appearance and make you feel like a million bucks.
5. Soothe aches and banish stress with deep tissue massage.
Whether you’re sore from working out at the gym or simply knotted up from stress, a deep tissue massage will rub out those spots filled with soreness and tension.
4. Wipe away scars and stretch marks and wear that bikini again.
Don’t let embarrassing scars or stretch marks prevent you from baring your body at the beach. Fractional skin resurfacing is the only FDA-approved treatment that can eliminate or greatly reduce deep scars or stretch marks.
3. Indulge in a “mini” spa day with friends.
When’s the last time you and your friends got together for some bonding time? Rather than gathering at a restaurant for a fancy dinner, why not treat yourselves to a mini spa day for the same cost? Talk to a spa manager who can recommend a fun and memorable service package.
2. Gain serenity with Shirodhara
This ayurvedic healing treatment is guaranteed to transport you to another time and place. Gain calm and serenity through this ancient therapy that directs a steady stream of aromatic oils onto the chakra between your eyebrows and forehead, considered the point of human consciousness. The rich oils used are also massaged into your hair for an added luxury conditioning treatment.
1. Check out SlimLipo for a new,
more confident you.
SlimLipo laser liposuction is designed to re-sculpt parts of the body to give you a more appealing shape or beautiful appearance. This revolutionary procedure works wonders on targeted trouble spots including the neck, upper arms, abdomen, thighs and calves that diet and exercise alone can’t tackle.
