How perfect is your spa etiquette?

September 13, 2007 | Filed Under Beauty

How to get the best from a spa visit? Rouge helps you relax without getting                    intimidated at a spa
 Are you reluctant to visit a spa? We asked some top spa gurus on what to expect at a spa-in-dulging session. So that you can enjoy the benefits of all that pummelling and pampering, can use your spa experience to pick up tips on coping with stress and on changing your diet.
        What are the tips I should keep in mind
It’s very important to fix your appointment in advance. “Spas, especially at hotels/resorts, run on tight schedules and always give preference to their members over walk-ins. so, it is imperative to have a prior appointment. Somebody you might just turn up and find all the sessions booked,” says Ajay Malik, who works at a popular spa. Meanwhile, Kamayani Kanwar, from another spa, says, “while fixing an appointment don’t only plan the time of appointment don’t only pla the time of appointment but also discuss treatment. Also, if you enjoyed the services of a particular therapist on a prior visit, feel free to request for that person.” It is advised to talk about your medical condition before the treatment. An expectant mother should inform the therapist in advance about her condition. “We would recommend customers to walk in 15 minutes prior to their appointment. This will enable them to change into their spa gowns and proceed for their treatment on time, “she adds.

Are there any essentials to carry along?
We’ve had women wonder what clothes they should wear to a spa. Kamayani says, “Spas provide towels, gowns, the best of creams, lotions and shampoos and a separate locker to keep all your jewellery, watches and other essentials. However, always check with a spa if they provide you with these facilities.” Ajay adds, “We provide disposable underwear but as far as cosmetics and toiletries are concerned there are few people who are very particular about their skin and prefer using their own brands. In that case, we advise them to carry their own stuff.”

Too shy to undress?
No woman thinks her body is perfect. So, undressing at a spa is big deal, especially if it’s your first time. But you don’t have anything to worry. You can wrap yourself in a towel. Only the parts that are being massaged will be uncovered or massaged from under the towel. The therapist starts massaging from the back while the towel is still on you. Even when she asks you turn on your back for front body massage, she will cover her face with towel.” Jesper Hougaard, MD of spa makes a point, “You don’t necessarily have to undress unless you are getting a full body massage, for which you’ll be wrapped in a towel.”

Can I have meal before the treatment?
“For a full body massage you have to make sure that the meal has been taken at least two hours in advance.” says kamayani. She goes on to add, “During a massage, therapist work on your body so as to active a full blood circulation by pressing and massaging points. However, having a meal prior to the massage will not have the desired effect.”

Can I speak during the treatment?
Ideally, it is recommended that you should lie down and relax. But, be sure to speak up if you want things to be done differently. Hougaard says, “spa treatment is for relaxation and it’s very important that you are satisfied. So, you should speak up if you want your therapist to give you a deep massage, change the amount of light, kind of music, room temperature, and whether or not you choose to have a conversation or enjoy the treatment in silence. Also, feel free to ask questions.”

Can I tip the therapist?
While most of spas don’t encourage tipping as such, but if you are delighted by a therapist’s work, you might as well tip her. Kamayani says, “ We do not encourage tipping but if  a customer wishes to encourage a therapist, we do not resist either. Otherwise the therapist might feel disheartened.”
Stress can do strange things to you, but a spa can help you get rid of it. “A spa offers you an experience. It provides luxurious treatment in a nice environment, candles and music helps you rejuvenate and relax,” says Hougaard. So, stop snapping at your partner, cursing your officemates. Just chill at a spa!

Foods that can Make Our Skin Glow

December 20, 2006 | Filed Under Beauty

Slathering a whole lot of creams and lotions on the skin cannot make it glow. It is balanced and nutrient-rich diets that can bring a soft incandescence to the skin making it look beautiful. Vitamin A, C and E are increasingly important because of their antioxidant capabilities. Free radicals are thought to be the cause of many diseases from cancers to colds. The free radicals damage a person’s DNA, causing unwanted changes in the basic building blocks of the cells. This damage can often be prevented, and sometimes be reversed, with the healing properties of antioxidants.
Vitamin A works as an antioxidant of invaluable worth. It disarms molecules called the free radicals. These are unleashed by white blood cells whenever the skin is irritated by sun, smoke or pollution. If left unchecked free radical molecules cause damage to healthy skin collagen, which brings firmness to the skin. Damaged collagen causes wrinkles, slacken the skin and can lead to skin cancer. Vitamin A is found in many yellow and green vegetables, egg yolk, butter, liver and fish oils. Retinoids, the active ingredients in vitamin A, can reduce and prevent wrinkles, brown spots etc and bring about improvement in skin texture and tone.
Beta-carotene contained in carrots, leafy vegetables, sweet potatoes, squash, cantaloupes, meat, butter and cheese, also contains agents that act as free radical scavengers and protect the body cells. A combination of vitamin A and beta-carotene can work wonders in protecting the skin from harmful effects of free radicals.
Vitamin C or ascorbic acid is found in vegetables and citrus fruits. It acts as an antioxidant by scavenging and quenching free radicals throughout the body. The harmful effects caused by sunlight’s UVA and UVB rays can be nullified by vitamin C and this can control skin damage.
Vitamin E like vitamin A and C, is an antioxidant. When combined with Vitamin C, it acts as a powerful protective factor against the UVB rays of the sun. Vitamin E is present in vegetables, oils, seeds, corn, soy, whole-wheat flour, margarine, nuts and some meats and dairy products. Vitamin E is also used on the skin for protection against sunburn.
To find the required amount of antioxidants, it is necessary to eat a varied diet.

Complexion improvers

October 16, 2006 | Filed Under Beauty

I have been on photo shoots where the make-up artist spent most of his or her time working on a model’s skin. At first, this didn’t make sense to me: why not devote more energy to features like the eyes or mouth? Then a make-up artist explained to me that skin is the foundation of the complete look. If skin looks flawed, no one will look past it to see the eyes or mouth. That made sense. After that, I made more effort with foundation, concealer, and powder. I also started looking more closely at my skin-care regime-after all, make-up can help hide skin problems, but it can never be a substitute for good skin care.    
A powder compact is an invaluable accessory for a busy woman. You can quickly powder your face during a hectic day and keep your skin looking smooth, even, and blemish-free.

Living with your hairstyle

September 29, 2006 | Filed Under Beauty

After living with the cut a while, I would grow frustrated. With the above-mentioned bob, for example, I woke up at 5 a.m. each morning to wash and condition my hair, blow-dry, and say a prayer asking the weather gods for a perfectly dry day because even a touch of humidity would encourage my strands to return to their wavy ways. By the end of the day, my hair had begun creeping back to its natural position. If had a dinner date, I needed to run home and either wet my hair down and re-blow-dry, or plug in a straightening iron and spend 30 minutes removing kinks. My straight-haired friends literally woke up and ran a brush through their hair. That’s it. Their strands fell effortlessly into place, which meant they could go from college to a night out without going home first. Yet even this wasn’t enough to tell me I had chosen the wrong style.
At the time, I was a drama student. It took a comment from the drama department’s costume and make-up director to make me rethink my coif. “Your hairstyle makes your chin look weak,” she said. “You might want to try a softer style.” But the cut was such a sexy, late 80s, New Wave look! I loved it! “You like the haircut better than you like your face?” she asked. She had a point. I stopped blow-drying my strands straight and had a few softening layers added. The moral of this long-winded tale? A hairstyle should accentuate your total look-not be your look.  
Tweak your look to keep it modern and to ward off boredom, but don’t have a radical change simply for the sake of change. If you’re happy with a cut and it works for you, why give it up?

Fat injection

September 25, 2006 | Filed Under Beauty

Fat injections are ideal for plumping up the deep lines that run from nose to mouth and mouth to chin. They’re also great for filling in indented scars or the depressed areas that show up on some of our lower cheeks as we age. One of the nice things about these injections is that the process uses a material that may already be hanging around your tummy, bottom, or thighs: fat. It doesn’t require a lot of fat, usually just a few ounces. After choosing a donor site, your dermatologist will clean and anesthetize the area before making a small incision, from which fat is withdrawn. Before the fat can be reinjected, however, it must be purified of any blood or other material.
Dermatologists can also plump up old-looking hands with a fat transplantation procedure. After all, when it comes to broadcasting your age, your hands speak louder than your face.
Once the fat is cleansed, you can return to your dermatologist, who will numb the area to be treated before injecting it with fat cells. No bandages or other wrapping are required afterwards. The entire procedure usually takes an hour. Results last about 3 to 6 months. With repeated treatments, however, the outcome can last longer. This is because some of the fat begins to incorporate into the surrounding tissue.

Your hair and the change

September 16, 2006 | Filed Under Beauty

You probably know menopause is that time when your ovaries stop producing oestrogen. Menopause can occur at any time during your adult years, but most commonly happens during your late 40s to mid-50s. Yet regardless of when it happens, menopause signals the end of your reproductive years, meaning no more pregnancies and no more periods. In my opinion, there are some fabulous benefits to this, including not having to worry about birth control and never suffering from menstrual cramps again. Menopause is not, however, so fabulous for your hair. That’s because oestrogen protects you against hair loss; without oestrogen, your locks may grow noticeably thinner. For those of you who aren’t near menopause, ask your mothers, aunts, grandmothers, or post-menopausal friends about how their mane altered after “the change”; most will admit their hair has not only grown a little (or a lot) thinner, but also finer in texture.
More had news. For those of you genetically predisposed toward female-pattern hair loss, menopause is when you’ll learn whether or not you’re going to be affected- this also has to do with the sudden lack of hair-helping oestrogen. Some women find hormone replacement therapy protects them near-totally or partially from all kinds of post-menopausal hair loss. However, hormone replacement therapy has been linked with breast, endometrial, and liver cancers; discuss the risks with your doctor.

Hair do don’ts
I generally dislike categorizing hairstyles as “do’s” or don’ts”. However, here are two looks that I cannot keep quiet about:
1. You still come across the flick every so often, even though the style hasn’t been in fashion since the 70s and 80s. To achive the result, the fringe is teased at the roots and combed back. It is then sprayed with plenty of hair spray or alternatively, it is heavily gelled. The fringe, or flick, then falls like a wave away from the forehead. The heavy use of styling products has the effect of creating a single “piece” of stiffened hair.
2. The mullet is another look from the 80s. During punk days, the style was adopted by both females and males. Today, however, it is more commonly seen on men. From the front, the coif appears to be a typical men’s short cut. It’s not until you get past the ears that it becomes obvious a man is wearing a mullet; there, hair suddenly drops into a longer’ do. Interestingly, some men sport mullets that are very short up front and very long at the back. Other names for the mullet include the ape drape, the hockey cut, the dual-cut, and the country & western. In addition to rural and suburban men in English-speaking countries, the mullet is popular among North American ice-hockey players, country singers, and in Central and South America.
