DID YOU KNOW?
The process whereby the skin naturally gets rid of dead skin cells takes around 28 days, but slows down with age. Exfoliation is one of the most overlooked steps in the majority of clients’ regimen. Dead skin cells build up, leaving the skin with a dull, lifeless and with a course appearance. Excessive dead skin cell build-up can often contribute to the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone, sun damage and acne, while active ingredients of serums and creams cannot penetrate effectively, leaving the skin dehydrated.
Exfoliation 1-2 times per week is therefore crucial in any age group’s skin care regimen and leaves the skin smooth while stimulating blood circulation for overall radiance. .

Miss World shifted the crown on her perfect head and asked; “How can I help you sir?”
“Yes uh, I’m here for a Elim Medi-Heel thing. For my feet!”
A long silence followed while the pretty girl cocked her head to the side.
At last she came to my rescue; “A pedicure! You’re here for a pedicure!”
If this is true for you; STOP READING NOW.
Rather use this time to plan your next trip to La-la Land.
Open spaces in appointment books come straight off your profits. It doesn’t do a loop-around, returning with a gift.
Yet, I have very few buddies that go to the spa. My wife? Now she has no friends that don’t. And there lies the unexploited paradox. Only one half of the pair goes there! It’s time to try something different.
So what does hubby do? What are his heels like? Let’s sort that out for you!
Instead of creating new sources of revenue, expand the existing one. It’s a soft sell. Women hate blackheads and chapped heels on their men. Women hate it when their knight in shining armour’s face looks like it belongs in a Frankenstein movie. Women hate men with fingernails like the claws of a raven. Women hate nose hair!
Wives, partners, girlfriends and fiancés are already incentivised; they just need to be reminded of this.
Girls, drag him along. He will look better, feel better and you get to spend more time with the busybody.
I have a friend that regularly goes to the spa. His wife books the appointments.
Well … don’t ask me. Suffice to say that half my man-rump was on display when the poor girl re-entered. By now I couldn’t give a damn anymore, I was in over my head. In way over.
I walked in with the feet of a Hobbit and left with my toes in bows. I walked in oblivious of bliss and left a new man. It was a great experience. The decor was beautiful, wish I could do that at home. The washrooms were clean, the pool was great and the therapists were fantastic. I relaxed, enjoyed and saw the resurrection of my heels. I’ll definitely be back.

What is brow code? Why is Brow Code creating such an industry storm and turning heads and burning plastic world-wide?
Up until recently most salons would have an option on their service menu for a brow wax and separately for a brow tint. Rarely would you see the service offer for a brow sculpt. The consumer demands and awareness for brow sculpting was low and the fashion at the time was small thin brows. The modern consumer is not wanting a brow wax or just a brow tint anymore, they want a brow sculpt - a full brow look and guidance to groom and grow their lashes into shape and style. Hence the new demand for products for salons to now market brow sculpting. There are even reports and feedback we are getting of salons reporting losing business because they did not offer brow sculpting.
Some key points to the products and methods used to create a brow sculpting professional service are:
Brow Brushes – Brow Code dual brush 122 in particular. This brush is the most used in the service and a must have retail item for the consumers.
Brow Pomade – Generally the aesthetician would select a brow pomade shade to suit the client from the 7 available shades in Brow Code range to pre shape the desired outline of the brows. Key selling points to the Brow Code pomades: They are creamy in texture that allows the stylist and consumers to glide the color on the skin providing a smudge proof wear yet the formulation is stay proof but not too sticky where some pomades can act like a unwanted depilatory wax. The Brow Code pomades formula was redefined a number of times to not only allow this glide texture but also to create stability and resistance so the product would have difficulty going hard and pasty in the jar. The BC pomade if left with the lid off will go hard but from all testing the resistance of BC to go hard is greater than all other products tested.
Brow Wax and Brow Tint: It is at this point where there is a big change from brow waxing to brow sculpting. In order to create the fuller brow look we need to pre shape outline where the ideal brow should be and wax around that area and tint the skin within that outlined area. Key Selling points to the Brow Code wax: It is unique unlike any other wax on the International market. It is specifically formulated for the needs of brow sculpting. The BC wax applies similar to a strip wax yet it is a hot wax. The wax is transparent so you can see where you are sculpting. It has a fresh yet subtle Japanese Cherry blossom fragrance. Waxing the delicate facial and skin area above the eyes is not what you want to be repeatedly waxing over, the Brow Code wax removes even the finest hairs the once over. On the Brow Code Instagram page there has been some amazing reviews from clients from all over the World worth reading. The Brow Code wax formula is completely unique and exclusive to Brow Code.
The tint: e color is different to others, it is a gel like consistently with rich color pigments that are easily absorbed. The consistency and application of e color is the most ideal tint for brow tinting. E color brow skin staining: can last up to five days on the skin. Again read some the international feedback on Instagram on the new results salons are achieving by switching to e color.
Once the service of outlining, tinting and waxing is complete the aesthetician continues to complete the brows by defining and lining the brows with the selected pomade shade in combination with the brow tinted setting gel.
As the consumer now has these new look wonderful brows they want to maintain this look! The tinted skin will last up to 5 days so it at this point the brow stylist needs to show the consumer the shade or pomade or tinted setting gel they used so the client can continue maintaining the look and grooming their brows to grow into this new shape.
The tinted setting gel acts to color the hair of the brows where the pomade colors the skin. The tinted setting gel if also penetrated deep enough into the brows can also color the skin. The gel texture component of the Tint setting gel formula also sets the brow hairs in place. Ideally used everyday but also valuable for clients in between brow tints to maintain great brow color.
The engineer behind the Brow Code range is Melanie Marris. Melanie has an international following due to some of her pioneering methods to the brow sculpt. Melanie boasts an International celebrity clientele and three very successful Brow only sculpting studios in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney.
The Brow Code range launched May 15th 2017, 6 months behind schedule due to the persistence of Melanie and the Brow Code team to refine and re-construct each item in the range until it performed as it should.
Tweezers: At this stage we anticipate the tweezers should be available in 6 – 10 weeks. The tweezers were manufactured for International launch however Melanie was not entirely content with the level of quality and materials used. So the tweezers range are now under complete redevelopment before re-launching!
Brow Code education: At this stage Brow Code demonstrations are on offer. Official Brow Code education will be run exclusively by Melanie and her BC team, coming soon! You tube videos and demonstrations also coming soon!

ABOUT THE CUPRON COSMETIC PILLOWCASE
“Sleeping with a copper-infused pillow is the latest step in the fight against ageing – and it’s producing outstanding visible results.”
Skincare expert Metro-Dora Clifford said copper was making a comeback as a mineral that can help promote collagen, is hypoallergenic and is environmentally friendly.
“A century ago copper was used to kill bacteria in the body but was eclipsed by the use of antibiotics,” said Ms Clifford.
“With new technology and proven clinical studies, the move towards natural products is now the preferred option. It is now possible to weave copper-oxide into fabrics to boost your skincare benefits,” she said.
“Wrinkles develop over time because the skin loses its firmness and elasticity, mostly due to loss of proteins like collagen and elastin."
“Cupron USA has developed a pillowcase made with copper-infused fibres. The copper in the pillowcase can help promote the natural growth of these diminished proteins and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet.”
“The brilliant thing about the pillowcase is that the appearance of your facial skin will improve while you’re asleep.”
Ms Clifford said the pillowcase worked by:
· Using the natural skin-enhancing benefits of Copper-oxide infused into the fibres in the fabric.
· The copper ions being activated by the moisture released from your facial skin while you sleep.
· Copper is scientifically proven as a mineral that can help regenerate collagen which plays an important role in enhancing the appearance and texture of your skin
· The skin is nourished deeply while you sleep as penetration of your skincare is further improved
· Over the course of four weeks, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles has been clinically proven to be reduced significantly
“Imagine having your pillowcase transformed into a cosmetic device to help you look a whole lot better!”
The Cupron Pillowcase looks and feels no different from any other satin pillowcase, but you will be able to see the difference in yourself, in just four weeks.
“The copper in the satin lasts the lifetime of the fabric, even with repeated washes, and never loses its effectiveness.”
“You can make your lotions and cremes work better for you when used with the pillowcase.”

Discover how to have smooth heels – The Truth be told. We have your cracked heel solution!
Ever had a pair of shoes that irritated you endlessly? Every noticed how the skin hardens around the irritated area on your little toe?
The callused skin is caused by friction to the skin. Let’s simplify. When you cause friction to the skin with a band on a shoe or a tight fitting shoe, the brain will receive a message of injury. The body has a defense mechanism to protect itself and will instantly start forming more layers of skin to protect this area of the skin.
Ever noticed how cyclist have callused palms? Yes, this is exactly what happens. The bicycle handle causes friction on the hand and the body experience injury. It immediately reacts and forms a nice thing layer of skin to protect itself against further injury.
