The days are getting shorter and the sun begins to chill out a little. Literally. Yes, summer has come to an end and it’s now officially autumn! More than likely, you’ve spent your summer basking in the sunshine, unwinding by the pool, or since we are on an island after all, at the beach. Whilst the sunny season is notorious for that atmosphere where you suddenly want to party on the beach all night long, waking up with that sun kissed feeling and wavy hair, there is a downside to the sunshine. Yes, my friends, I’m talking about what the summer season does to our skin. SUMMER AND THE SKIN Unfortunately, some people don’t realise that summer can leave our skin looking a little worse for wear, so let’s start there. Why is summer pretty harsh on our skin? The main reason, is the UV rays from sun exposure, and the sun can cause damage to ANY skin type, not just fair skin folks. A few tell-tale signs of sun damage to look out for are an uneven skin tone, darker patches and freckles. Apart from these issues, what may seem to be natural ageing processes of the face [...]
Clara who lives 3 doors away has done her breasts 10 years ago and she always says that tear drop implants are the most natural looking. But, last time, I met Joanna's friend's sister, and she said hers are round and they are natural looking too. So.. this got me thinking, what is best? Round or tear drop?! First of all, breast augmentation done on Clara is not the same as a breast augmentation done on Joanna's friend's sister, and the reason is an obvious one. We are all different, we all start from different starting points and we all have different needs. This also means that everyone's experience is different. The most important factor when it comes to taking the plunge is the trust relationship with your Surgeon. Your Doctor is to explain every single detail, and if need be, answer the same question six million times over and over again until you have understood all it entails. The Doctor will measure your current breast size, determine the extend of drooping (if any), which method of lifting is most appropriate, and the size of implant your chest can take. One word of advice, going to the Doctor prepared [...]
SPRING... No, it should not bring terror to us. It should remind us of the longer, warmer days. The energy the sun will provide us, the brighter, lighter.. shorter.. qhm clothes. Well.. yes, Winter sometimes is better described as 'the couch, pizza and TV Series season', because let's be frank, who is the one who likes to dress up and go out when its windy, rainy and cold? And if we do go out, the amount of clothes is substantial enough for one to disguise well a few rolls which we would have formed over the Winter months. Let us all be positive today and instead of despairing, be proactive and formulate a plan which will lead us to a more confident US! No 1: You cannot expect changes in the way you look and feel if you do not change your attitude! Start by planning your days ahead. Think about what you will be eating, prepare your lunches and snacks and find at least 2 hours in a whole week where you can dedicate some precious time to yourself. Be it a gym session, circuit training or else a walk along the promenade. It takes 21 days to [...]
