DRINK A LOT OF WATER

This is the general rule for an healty lifestyle!
The first rule for every beauty treatment!

The best cream of all is nothing without a good level of hydratation from inside.
The water is important to keep our skin moisturized. It makes the skin younger, reduces the wrinkles, reduces the cellulite, helps with digestive problems and bad breath, makes the skin smoother, helps beauty technologies working better, keeps the blood more clean etc.. Other drinks don't count if they contain sugar, colorants, preservants and additives.

SCRUB
WHAT IS IT?

The scrub is a cosmetic made to help renewing the skin

The skin has its own renewing cicle and it is good to help it renewing faster (and better) with scrub, removing the dead cells and taking the ingrown hairs out.
Some are made with grains (scrub), some are enzymatic (peeling) and some are made with both.
It's important to be very careful expecially with the enzymatic or combinated ones because they can be very aggressive.

HOW OFTEN IT IS NECESSARY TO USE IT?

Between 2 and 4 times per month.

After a scrub treatment the skin needs some days to "recover" and restabilize the PH.
Scrubbing too much will cause inflamations, more ingrowns and folliculitis: the skin will become too thin and sensitive, the PH will be unbalanced and the hairs will break (but only above the skin) so the root will be even thicker than before, like shaving.

HOW SHOULD IT BE USED?

It depends on the scrub. Always read the instructions on the packaging and ask to your Beautician.

Usually scrubs are made to be used on dry skin, after it just rinsed with water and ending with a moisturizing/soothing cream.
But sometimes there are different rules, like posing periods, use on wet skin or no need for cream after, so it is always good to ask and read on the product.

CAN I USE ONE FOR BODY AND FACE?

Usually NO but it depends on the scrub

Many body products are stronger than face ones.
It can be ok to use them for both in some cases like natural, very delicate and soothening ones for instance

WHAT ABOUT PEELING GLOVES?

They can provide good results too if well used.

These stuff are tricky: they are easy to use and cheap but they can be more aggresive by the moment they don't contain any oily ingredient to protect the skin and they can be a very good terrain for bacterials causing ingrowns and inflamations.
They have to be washed with soap AFTER EVERY USE and possibly adding some disinfectant like teatree, dried and kept in a clean place
Always moisturize the skin after use.

IS IT GOOD TO COMBINE DIFFERENT MEANS (SCRUB+GLOVE)?

No absolutely NO!!!!

Every product or thing has a particular use and often the result of a combination is very strong and can badly damaging the skin.

WAXING
WHAT HAPPEN TO MY HAIRS WHEN I WAX?

They'll grow slowly, thinner and the amount will reduce time after time

A good wax treatment should remove the whole hair, from the root. That way the hair gets weaker and weaker.
The result is less and less hairs and a smoother skin

WHICH WAXES ARE USED AT ARMONIA?

I use the hot (brazilian) that cool down and is removed with the fingers, and the strip wax that needs to remain warm and is removed with the strips.

In my opinion there are good and bad waxes in all categories.
A good wax should be not too chemical but even not too natural (it will grip less), never too hot but most important it should never be too aggressive with the skin.
It's very important also how the wax is used: even the best wax can be a nightmare if used wrongly

WHAT'S NECESSARY TO DO BEFORE?

-Keep the hairs for at least 2 weeks
-Don't heat up too much the skin that day with tanning, sauna, working out, turkish bath etc
-Have a scrub in the days before
-Clean the part of the body that has to be waxed.

Remember that the first wax treatments after years of shaving or using epilator are not perfect: it is necessary to completely stop shaving, have good wax treatments and take care of the skin to have nice results and it takes time. It is also important to not heat up too much the skin because even a good wax treatment is traumatic for the skin so it is better to avoid extra stress that day.

WHY HYGIENE IS SO IMPORTANT?

Because the result would be better and the risk of ingrown and infections is lower

It's seriously important to be always clean (with cleansers) the day of the wax:
it's not only polite towards who is going to give the wax treatment, it is a way to prepare the skin for it reducing the amount of bacterials and death cells.

WHAT IS NECESSSARY TO DO AFTER?

-Wait at least 2 weeks before scrubbing
-Don't heat up too much the skin that day with tanning, sauna, working out, turkish bath etc
-Have a warm or cool shower for cleaning skin from wax residuals

A wax treatment will always be perfect at 90-99%, because every hair has its own growing cicle different from all the other hairs around;
that's the reason why few days after waxing it's possible to see some (ONLY FEW) short hairs that are coming out. For the same reason is counterproductive to scrub immediatly cause these hairs will come out faster and the result will least less. Don't heat up too much the skin because it's already stressed from the treatment.

HOW TO AVOID/REDUCE INGROWNS?

Usually scrub is the best way to do it
but it's important to understand with your beautician what's causing that.

In some cases the ingrowns are a lot and/or very inflamated maybe with bumps: the reason can be related to hormons, genetic predisposition, bad condition of the skin due to unbalanced PH index, infections, too aggressive cleansing/scrubbing, last waxing treatment, low hygiene level (thicker skin), tight clothes or a combination of these reasons.

FACIAL TREATMENTS
WHICH ONE IS RIGHT FOR ME?

It's always better to target the problem with your beautician to find ot what is necessary to do.

In my experience the clients should come with problems or needs and the beautician should provide solutions.
The cosmetics, techniques and technologies are choosen at the moment according to what the skin needs: that makes the difference.

WHEN SHOULD I HAVE ONE?

It is always good in the evening or free days when it is possible to go home and rest after it.

During a facial the skin is treated with many cosmetics with high percentage of actives, so the best thing to do after that is to keep them on the skin (no sweting, swimming, showering etc) and relax, take time to recover remembering that during the night the skin can absorb more the cosmetics. Going out after it many hours can make the skin dirty (pollution, dust, wind, sweting, tan etc..) and makes necessary to clean it again, removing the cosmetics.

HOW MUCH TIME BEFORE AN IMPORTANT OCCASION SHOULD I HAVE ONE?

Between four days and one day before, it depends on the kind of treatment but never the same day.

Purifyng treatments can leave some red spots that will fade away in few hours/days and anti-age and glowing treatments usually give their best the day after.
Sometimes, due to a leak in taking good care of the skin, are necessary several treatments to obtain a precise result.
It's a route has to be decided together.

WHY SHOULD I USE PROFESSIONAL
NON-CHEAP COSMETICS AT HOME?

Because a good self-care will keep the skin in better conditions for long time and the amount of high quality cosmetics used everyday is lower so it leasts longer

It's definitely more than important expecially for the face because it will make treatments necessary less often and will avoid inflamations and sun-related cancer. The ingredients make the cost: high quality ingrediets, high percentage of actives, no GMOs, precious actives, natural ingredients, etc are all features that make the product more expensive but more safe and healthy for the skin and higher quality.

BODY TREATMENTS
WHAT IS A BODY SCRUB TREATMENT?

It's an amazing way of renewing the skin, removing dead cells and nourishing while relaxing

During this treatment a scrub is performed on the whole body surface (face scrub and hair mask under request) with a sweet but effective massage, followed by an energizing shower and a final relaxing massage. The result is the smoothest skin ever

WHEN SHOULD I HAVE A SCRUB TREATMENT?

At least before and after the summer but every 1-2 month is the best choice

The scrub treatment prepares the skin for all the other beauty in order to obtain a deeper penetration of the products after removing the death skin.
It has also a wonderful effect before waxing treatments cause it takes out all the ingrowns, by dedicating to this ritual the right amount of time

WHAT IS CELLULITE?

Cellulite is woman they say.
It's a disease connected with female hormons (estrogens mostly) and unhealty lifestile.

Cellulite is an inflamation of the lower layer of the skin with fibrous connective tissue that manifests as skin dimpling and nodularity.
It's a sufference of the deepest layer of the skin, caused by a liquid stagnation due to a malfunction of the lymphatic system: it does not take away the toxines and waste substances from the cells of the adipose tissue.

WHAT CAN I DO?

It's important to determinate what can be done in terms of treatments and lifestyle changes with your beautician .

There are several stages of cellulite
The more the circulation (lympathic and blood) get worse, the higest is the amount of liquids and inflamated fibrous tissue.
It's a circle. Unhealthy nutrition, sedentary lifestile, hormons, diseases and other factors can make the condition worse.
Changing and treatments give a huge help

IS IT POSSIBLE TO HEALING COMPLETELY CELLULITE?

The right answer is "kind of": a bad situation can always take to a very good result

Changing habits (food, sport, etc), making focused workout, being careful with anticonceptional hormons and most important having the right body treatments can really reduce it.

WHY DO I NEED TREATMENTS AGAINST CELLULITE AND FAT?

They can't replace an healthy lifestyle but our body needs to be "directed" on where to change what

Almost nobody understand how important are the body slimming and firming treatments: they can't replace sport and vice versa, but they're necessary otherwise our body will always choose to lose weight, centimeters or liquids where it's easier and not where there is "the problem"

WHY DO I HAVE MORE CELLULITE AFTER THE FIRST 3-4 TREATMENTS?

Because draining the area the real cellulite is no more hided by liquids

After the first couple of treatments the treated part could appear even worse and more full of cellulite than the begin. That’s quite common because when the tissue (that was full of liquids) is drained, the real Cellulite that lays under that layer comes out. After couple of other treatment it’s possible to see finally the real improvement.
