Win the War on Hair Removal!

shutterstock_130970495Win the War on Hair Removal!

A hairy woman is not generally considered an attractive sight. And unfortunately, as we age, our hormones turn against us and we tend to grow coarse, thick hair in unconventional places…even our face!

Women fight the battle of full-body hair removal on a daily basis. Shaving is an inconvenience that often results in painful nicks and cuts as we hurry to head out the door. There has to be an easier way!!

Laser hair removal is a technique of removing unwanted hair by exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle. This new trend is becoming increasingly popular with women as a convenient, permanent method of hair removal. Keep reading to discover the benefits of this popular treatment.

 

Say goodbye to your razor!

 

Eliminating unwanted hair usually translates into a lot of time spent shaving. Because laser hair removal permanently removes almost all of the hair treated, you can spend less time shaving and more time completing meaningful tasks or enjoying your family.

 

Eliminate painful ingrown hairs.

 

Many of us suffer through painful, unsightly ingrown hairs due to shaving. In most cases, laser hair removal reduces the incidence by nearly 90%. That’s significant! Many women discover that laser hair removal offers the only long-term solution to their complications with ingrown hairs.

 

Reveal healthier looking skin.

 

Laser hair removal leaves the skin softer and smoother, without unappealing stubble that causes discomfort. Your skin will have a healthy glow without the discoloration sometimes associated with shaving.

 

Confidence

 

Our personal appearance plays a key role in the self-confidence we exude. When you look good you, you feel good. In turn, you will have a positive self-image that transforms into greater success…both personally and professionally. Laser hair removal is an excellent tool to include in your beauty regimen.

Thank a Teacher This Month!

3205338-educationDid you have a favorite teacher when you were in school? That one person who encouraged you and inspired you to be more than you ever thought you could be. You know…that teacher who taught you those life lessons that textbooks simply can’t impart. We all had those teachers who were so dedicated to our education, causing us to never forget them. October 5th is World Teachers Day. In honor of these significant individuals, let’s consider the importance of the role they play in young people’s lives.

Children spend more time at school than they do at home. This means the people they encounter at school make a drastic impact in their lives. Teachers are not simply teaching lessons each day. They’re helping children develop socially and emotionally, as well. What a tremendous responsibility!

Teachers are self-esteem builders.

One of the biggest things that teachers impact is student self-esteem. Reinforcing self-esteem in the classroom is one of the most important things teachers do. Teachers communicate encouragement and positive feedback to their students, which is particularly vital to the success of struggling students.

Teachers are life skills instructors.

Each day in the classroom, teachers divulge life skills to students that are essential for future success. From completing a resume to appropriate behavior in social situations, teachers are preparing children for real-world events they will face in the future.

Teachers are motivators.

Teachers motivate students to become better than they think they are capable of becoming.  On a daily basis, teachers are reiterating the importance of discipline, responsibility, commitment, and always trying your very best at everything you do. These are values that are crucial to success.

Teachers deserve some relaxation! Gifting your favorite teacher to enjoy a relaxing stress relieving massage or facial is the perfect way to say Thank You! Click Here to purchase a Savanna MedSpa Gift Certificate!

 

Healthy Eating for a More Improved You!

shutterstock_50581876Eating healthy is easier than you think it is! If you think of eating as an opportunity to improve your health and overall well-being instead of a dreaded sacrifice, you’re one step closer to success. Check out some of the ways you can improve your quality of life by starting a healthy eating program.


Healthy eating keeps you…HEALTHY!

Implementing a healthy diet into your life is the easiest way to fight off many diseases, including heart disease and diabetes. A healthy diet boosts your immune system and enables the body to function as it needs to. Combining a healthy diet with exercise increases the possibility of living a longer, more vibrant life.

 

Healthy eating is an effective weight loss tool.

For those of us trying to shed a few pounds, a healthy diet is a must. We hear all the time about people going on fad diets only to gain the weight right back when they return to normal eating habits. By sticking to a healthy diet that includes all of the food groups, you can lose the weight and maintain it because you are choosing a healthy lifestyle over dieting, which leads to long-term results.

Healthy eating increases energy levels.

Including foods such as lean proteins, vegetables, fruits, and grains in your diet will keep you energized throughout the day. Processed foods lose the nutrients our bodies need to stay healthy and strong. But whole, natural foods are packed with vitamins and minerals that we need to stay healthy and vibrant.

 Healthy eating can make you look and feel younger.

One of the key components to youthful-looking skin is eating a balanced diet. The nutrients in fruits and vegetables promote supple, glowing skin. And don’t forget to drink plenty of water. Your skin thrives on water, so drink up!

Healthy eating eliminates holiday overindulgence!

The holidays are approaching and many of us struggle to keep our waistlines in check during the fun parties and family gatherings. By leading a healthy lifestyle that incorporates exercise and healthy eating, it is easier to limit fattening, unhealthy food choices.

With the celebration of Halloween this month, parents may be concerned about allowing their children to eat the large amounts of candy they acquire when trick-or-treating. We suggest setting boundaries to how much your children can eat on Halloween night…perhaps they can indulge a bit. After that, set a limit (maybe 1-2 pieces) of the amount of candy they can have each day forward. And be sure to continue packing them healthy lunches with fruit when they head off to school to keep them on their healthy track.

Don’t get frustrated during the holidays this year. Adjust your eating habits and get on the path to a healthier, more enjoyable lifestyle. Your body will thank you!
