spa-treatment-header-men 233x207 Because men need a little pampering too...

If there’s one thing the recent uptick in male beauty treatments has given us, it’s a solid appreciation of portmanteau. From the dermal depths of ‘Brotox’ up to the smooth layers of ‘manscaping’, bolting a macho prefix onto the names of those decidedly ladies-only treatments makes them very manly indeed. And thank the grooming gods; getting caught with your hands in your partner’s wash bag was becoming a real risk, right guys?

Written by Morag Currin on August 2nd, 2018.      0 comments

Hormone therapy excess hair growth (Tamoxifen) 233x207 Today involves the increasing popularity of body modification, including partial or complete removal of body hair.

The methods used to remove body hair include shaving, clipping, waxing, epilation, depilatory creams, laser hair removal, electrolysis, sugaring and threading. Many of these methods cause trauma that can provide an entry point for infection.

Couperose Skin and Rosacea

rosacea-skin-treatments 233x207 What's the difference?

When I was at the doctor a few weeks back (getting antibiotics for my acute bronchitis), she commented on whether I'd like a script for my rosacea. Ahhhh, excuse me lady... Firstly, I don't have rosacea and secondly, I don't do pharmaceuticals – unless it's a dire life or death situation. But lately, after exercise I've been noticing a reddish, blushed tinge to my face. It used to disappear after a few minutes but now it's hanging around for several hours

Egyptian-goddess-with-Pharo-pot Smooth, radiant skin is combined in one indulgent treatment combining a delicious sugar and mousse feast.

I was looking forward to my waxing session with Pure Skin in Ponsonby much the same way as I anticipate a visit to the dentist.
