Body sculpting - what is it?

Body sculpting – what is it?

I have always been happy about my body and the way it looks…. said no one ever!!  I fully support anyone that feels the need to change their body in some way in order to feel confident and more self assured as long as it is within a healthy limit although that line can get a bit blurred too. Everyone has problem areas and for me, no matter my weight, it has always been my double chin so when I got the chance to team up with Húðfegrun I grabbed it. I have tried facial exercises ( mostly in the car on the way to or from work ) and it has been an uphill battle. I signed up for the recommended six session with Díana at Húðfegrun. She greeted me with a huge smile and all my prejudice and feeling it would be totally “superficial”  faded away completely. “Húðfegrun uses radio frequency treatment to attack the fat layer of the skin causing the fat cells to evaporate” explains Díana. “The fat cells will be cleared naturally through the bodies lymphatic channels and it is totally risk free.” The fat cells will be gone forever but that doesn’t mean you have a free pass for the rest of your life. It is very important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. So what does it feel like? Díana puts a lotion on the area and uses a machine ( see picture ) on the area. It feels warm and comfy, imagine having a heating pad on your face, after that Díana adds a skin tightening treatment to further add to the effects of the treatment.  The procedure only takes around 20-30 minutes and thats it. I came back every two weeks and I had six treatments in total. To be fair I…

A luxury VIP Treatment - Tried and Tested

A luxury VIP Treatment – Tried and Tested

This post is in cooperation with VOR Organics I got invited by VOR Organics,  for a luxury VIP treatment at the Bjútík beauty salon. I had never had the experience of a facial or anything like that before so I was intrigued and excited to see what the whole process of that would be like.  When I walked in I was greeted by Svava who escorted me to a room with  lit candles and calming music. There she told me to get comfortable on the bench and call out to her when I was ready. I must admit I wasn’t sure about the protocol but Svava talked me through everything in her calm and easy going manner. She started by face mapping my skin, basically examining my skin in order to determine my skin type. The products used for the treatment are all from VOR Organics and are exclusively organic , paraben and perfume free. They are made from Icelandic substances such as seaweed,  blueberries and Icelandic water. These are the products she used: A luxurious mask , Lavender massage lotion, Seaweed cleansing milk, Seaweed facial toner, Exfoliant with AHA acids , Blueberry serum, Day Cream for dry skin with Icelandic blueberries, peptide eye cream and the lip balm.   Svava ended her examination of my skin by asking me a few questions about my skin and then proceeded with the treatment starting by massaging my shoulders and scalp. At one point she seemed to have eight hands as her hands continuously massaged my face and shoulders. She cleaned my face ( it is fine to go in with your makeup on ) and then left me with the first mask, a scrub mask. She put the mask on my face and covered me in a warm cuddly towel and then left me for approx…
