Recently Men’s Health Magazine named Jennifer Aniston “the sexiest woman of all time”. Raquel Welch, Madonna, Marilyn Monroe, Britney Spears, Pamela Anderson, Jane Fonda, Bettie Page, Ursula Andress and Angelina Jolie rounded out the top ten on the list of 100 women. What makes this honor especially interesting is that the popular actress is over 40, otherwise considered as past her shelf life according to age conscious Hollywood standards.
Many women dream of looking as stunning as the sexy actress. With the appearance of signs of ageing like fine lines and dark spots, this can be difficult. But advancements in cosmetic technology have made it possible to delay ageing and get smooth flawless skin. For instance, microdermabrasion is a popular treatment used to lighten fine lines and wrinkles. This can make a significant difference in your appearance. Laser hair removal is another popular cosmetic procedure used to get rid of unwanted hair permanently.
Apart from Jennifer Aniston, many actresses in the top ten are over 40. These actresses look great and lead the foxy-over-40 pack. With the help of modern cosmetic treatments such as microdermabrasion and laser hair removal, you can also be a part of this pack.
Everyone dreams of smooth, beautiful, flawless skin. But, no matter how perfect your skin is, it is impossible to combat age. Fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots are some of the common signs of aging skin. Although you can’t prevent ageing, you can delay the process. According to scientists, gold can effectively brighten complexion and slow down ageing.
A new treatment makes the anti-ageing properties of gold accessible to everyone. The Hydration Gold Moisturizer contains 23 carat particles of the precious metal. The creators of the product claim that it promotes collagen production. Hyaluronic acid is one of the ingredients of the product. It is a substance that occurs naturally in human body. One ml of hyaluronic acid can hold 3000 ml water. This makes it very effective in hydrating skin and combating wrinkles. The product is in high demand and has a long waiting list.
Anti-ageing treatments are always in demand. As such, the popularity of this new product is not surprising. Unwanted hair removal is another sector of the beauty industry that is always in demand. In this category, laser hair removal is rapidly gaining popularity. Professional laser hair removal treatments are a permanent solution for unwanted hair.
Medical professionals in the UK recommend laser hair removal. However, they do advise clients not to compromise on the quality of products and equipment involved in the process. Bristol based doctors who have been in the industry for years performing laser treatments and skin rejuvenating procedures say laser hair removal almost always gives excellent results.
The increasing popularity of such treatments should be accompanied with strict regulations. This year will see one and a half million cosmetic procedures being performed in the United Kingdom. Clinics should be registered and places like beauty salons should always ensure a professional is present while these procedures are being performed. They state that although laser treatments are safe, it does involve a high intensity laser beam which should be handled with care.
Professionals and doctors advise customers not to be tempted by cheap deals and packages. They instead advise people to look for well established companies, which are led by a doctor who is specialized in relevant treatments and where the laser therapists are well trained.
Before getting any procedure done, patients should get an entire check-up and inform the professionals of any other ongoing treatments that they are under. As long as you are in good hands, laser hair removal is safe, painless and long lasting.
