Water retention in the summer months can be caused by heat, alcohol consumption on holidays and during flying. When fluid accumulates abnormally throughout the body, it is known as water retention. The human body, as solid as it may seem, is mostly comprised of water in the blood, tissues and even muscles. If you suffer from water retention, keep in mind the following food to help you fight it: celery, watermelon and parsley. These foods are considered as natural diuretics that you can enjoy eating in small amounts to help you reduce the water hoarding that your body is engaging in.

Hormonal hair growth, especially on the face, is not limited to just PCOS but also to adrenal problems, thyroid disorders and more. Females with hormonal imbalance will often have hirsuitism involving the upper lip, chin, neck, stomach, breasts, and stomach. Most of the women with this condition can experience lack of confidence and depression during their life.
“I spend half an hour every morning plucking out hairs from my face, otherwise I can’t bear to let anyone see me.” (Christine, 31)
“No-one understands what I’m going through. All my confidence has gone and I can’t see any way out.” (Laura, 27)
Laser hair removal can help reduce unwanted hair. If done regularly it can keep hair growth under control; instead of waxing and tweezing can be very affective for weeks or even months.

Pulling, plucking, shaving and waxing hair - is it safe to say that women go to great lengths to stay smooth and hair-free? Not always. Modern men show a lot more interest in their appearance and do worry about how to look their best, including the issues related to unwanted hair. Excess hair in men can be caused by high testosterone levels but it can also be caused by genes, age and ethnicity. Waxing still remains very popular amongst men's hair removal choices. However, it can be associated with regular painful visits to a grooming salon and gets pricy in the long run. This is when men may think of a laser hair removal option. And although, it may seem to look one step too far at first, in reality, there is no reason why men should not get the same long-lasting, no-hassle benefits as their female counterparts. Laser hair removal really works nicely for men's unwanted hair, provided they choose the right laser for their hair removal. If you want to know which laser is the best to help you get rid of unwanted hair permanently, you should check out this video.
If you are a woman over 30, there is 90% chance you suffer from cellulite. Did you know that women in the UK usually spend £30m a year on slimming creams? But sometimes exercise, diet or creams are not enough for stubborn areas, such as tummy, thighs and bum.
Lipomassage by Endermologie is the best treatment to eliminate stubborn fat that is resistant to physical exercise and dieting. The treatment naturally boosts production of collagen and endogenous elastin to tone and sculp the body's contour banishing unsightly cellulite. Visible results can be achieved just after a few sessions. Using patented technology, Lipomassage uses mecano-stimulation to naturally re-awaken fibroblasts deep within the dermis, triggering the elimination of fat by 70%. The machine heads feature two independent motorised rollers, each with its own miniature motor. No other method has been found to reliably and consistently reduce the appearance of cellulite as effectively as endermological massage so far.

Althought production of new collagen and hyaluronic acid slows down from the age of 26, face wrinkles in most cases start bothering our patients from 34 onwards. Fortunately, these days cosmetic industry offers a number of effective non-invasive options to wake up 'sleeping' fibroblasts - the cells in our skin tissue responsible for production of three 'ingredients of youth' - collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
One of these non-invasive treatments is LPG Facelift that is specifically designed to stimulate fibrolasts' 'workout' and keep them 'awake'.
Lpg Facelift treatment provides multi-dimensional stimulation on the skin’s surface for intense physiological awakening: as if their youth has been restored, the stimulated fibroblasts operate from within to produce a true metamorphosis of the skin.
Fast and efficient, the Lpg treatment is part of a healthy lifestyle too through the ability to make the lymphatic system detox. A course of 10 sessions is recommended for long-term results.

Wrinkles around the eyes and frown lines are often a result of stress, smoking and environmental damage. But a number of bad every day habits can equallly contribute to a tired and older look. We have identified 3 common ones that a lot of people have. If you are someone who is worried about the wrinkles about your eyes to become more prominent, you should stop:
1) skipping SPF every morning: the sun causes your skin to age, because it activates free radicals. It is as simple as that. The skin around your eyes is thinner than anywhere else on the body, so it is more vulnerable to ageing. Choose a good SPF product to use and make sure that you do not leave the house without your SPF on. Obagi SunShield and a range of Heliocare sun blocks are worth looking at. Combined with the Obagi Professional-C Serums, which we consider as the best antioxidant we have tested so far, a small amount of SPF every morning will make a huge difference to the way your skin looks.
2) sleeping on your tummy: when you sleep with your face down, one side of it is resting on the pillow and is squished for a long time at night. By constant squishing your face that way, you cause your skin to crease that can eventually turn into wrinkly tissue. Did you notice those sleep lines in the morning? Start falling asleep on your back from tonight!
3) rubbing your eyes: chances are that you rub your eyes at least once a day. It is an instinct! It feels good to rub your eyes when you are tired or when your eyes are irritated, but it is a habit that you must end if you want to avoid looking older! The skin around the eyes is very thin, so when you rub it, you cause folds to form. You can consider fixing it with a Botox treatment, of course, but isn't it worth trying to pay more attention to eliminating a harmful habit first?

It is a common belief that being overweight is the main cause of cellulite. This is absolutely false! Even skinny people can suffer from Celluite. Diet, genetics and age can play a major role in causing the condition that affects 85% of women today.
Drinking plenty of water, exercising and following a balanced diet are crucial to combat cellulite effectively. However, it could be still not enough... Stabborn fat clogged in the deep tissue, can be difficult to melt. This is where you may need to think about one of the most powerful boosters - Endermologie - to achieve your cellulite-free results. Depending on how severe your cellulite is and where you suffer from it at most, an Endermologie specialist would determine your bespoke treatment plan. You may be pleased to see immediate improvements after only one treatment, but bear in mind that your fat tissue as well as your muscles have memory, so you'd better adhere to your treatment plan and complete it in full to make sure that you 'train' your tissue during your Endermologie course 'to remember' the way you want your tissue to function long term.
If you are thinking about something more drastic, such as surgical liposuction, your surgeon may refer you to have a few Endermologie sessions to prepare your body for the surgery or, if you already had liposuction, he may prescribe you Endermologie post-liposuction course to make sure that your body gets rid of unwanted post-surgery liquid in the tissue quicker to eliminate the risk of the related complications.
Consult an Endermologie specialist to see if Endermologie is right for you.
Have you had Endermologie before or know other effective ways to fight cellulite? Please, comment! We'd love to hear about your experience!

How fond of waxing and shaving are men? Not at all.
How many times any of you wished you no longer had to shave, pluck or wax unwanted hair?
It can be every 2 or 3 days, sometimes even every day. And we know...it can be veeery frustrating. Not just because it is time consuming. Shaving and waxing can also irritate skin and cause uncomfortable pimples on your face, neck, chest, back and shoulders. Shaving yourself on the back, for instance, cannot guarantee perfect results and you can end up having patchy left behind. The back is especially difficult to take care of by yourself. Laser hair removal solves this problem. This is why the most popular laser treatments are for back and chest, followed by the face area treated for unwanted hair.
With Diode Lightsheer Laser Machine our male clients can rest assured to get the best results possible; we usually recommend a course of 4 sessions for a permanent effect. We always test your suitability for any of our laser treatments with a Patch Test.

Men have obviously higher testosterone levels than women. That explains why men's skin produces more oil.
Oil can clog pores and can lead to blackheads (and whiteheads!). A good extraction and gentle but effective exfoliation is what men's skin needs in order to remove blackheads and impurities. Use of incorrect exfoliation and cleansing products at home can sometimes do more harm than good - a risk of removing vital skin lipids and scooping the unnecessary layers and exposing the skin to potential damage. The result - dry and sensitive skin with or without occasional breakouts as well as pigmentation for darker skin type. From experience, men often have a wrong impression of their own skin type. It is worth paying a visit or two to a cosmetologist (make sure it is a good one!) to make sure that you do the right things to the most presentable part of your body - your face! You may be pleasantly surprised to know that good clinics that offer facial treatments, have a range of facials for men - each of them designed towards individual skin requirements. The result is clean, healthy and younger looking skin.
Skin specialists at Body Silk Clinic point out that whether it is everyday or every two weeks, the continuous dragging of a razor across sensitive facial skin can cause irritation.
Razor burn, inflammation, and irritation from shaving over pimples are common consequences of shaving. A facial will deep cleanse bumps and soothe the irritated skin. The combination of exfoliation, essential oils, masks, and moisturisers for men that our practitioners apply will address side effects from regular shaving and make your skin healthier than ever.
Believe it or not, the smoother your skin, the better and more comfortable will be your shaving! Even if you are not worried about wrinkles, a bespoke facial would make an amazing difference. What is also impressive is visible results right after the treatment. Isn't it worth giving it a try?
If your beauty routine needs to be revamped, one of the best options to start with is with a facial.
Just like nature, our skin changes with the rhythms of the seasons. In order to offer the skin all the essential elements, Body Silk skin specialists design facial treatments with a cocktail of ingredients to create a perfect bespoke facial. Spring is a great time to begin a new facial regimen. It is all about renewal, so we always recommend a great deep-cleansing facial to see what the next step should be.
A good cleansing and exfoliation are essential to maintaining great skin, and should be followed by steaming and extractions to remove any blackheads. The skin will be refreshed, revitalised, toned and full of radiance.
