10 Ways to feel great in 2011

If you need some inspiration for feeling great after a food fuelled Christmas and New Year, look no further. Here is my top ten recommended products that will get you on your way in 2011:-

1. Straighten up

It’s normally a bit of a struggle to control the frizz in my unruly curly hair and getting the salon look is not always that easy. However, with these stunning Nicky Clarke Straighteners, it’s simple to style with confidence. Not only do they exude quality and class, but they also deliver extremely high performance. These classy straighteners add glamour to your hairstyle and allow you to be ready to hit the town on your girls night out.

2. Smoothly does it

The Braun Rechargeable epilator and shaver, with its wet and dry technology is so versatile that it can be used in the bath or shower.  Perfectly providing gentle epilation whilst removing up to 4 times more short hairs than wax in one stroke, has got to beat the pain of having the hairs yanked from your pores by the local beauty therapist or giving ourselves tons of grazes when we are rushing with our razor blades!

3. Discover the Beauty Beneath

A large amount of time spent in an air-conditioned office and all the partying over christmas and new year can take its toll on our skin! The Rio Crystal Renew microdermabrasion kit is an advanced microdermabrasion system that rejuvenates skin in a ten minute treatment, using vacuum technology to deliver an effective steady stream of natural crystals directly onto your skin.

The flow of Crystals lift and remove dead skin cells, evens skin tone and minimises pore size. The results are a beautiful glowing complexion that we normally only dream about! Whats mre, its suitable for both men and women and for all skin types!

4. Shiatsu anyone?

After sitting at a desk at work all day, I cannot think of a better way to relieve my back tension than relaxing a Shiatsu back massage. The Homedics Massage Cushion not only massages your back but also provides added heat for a more intense experience. There are 3 programmes to chose from that include full massage, upper back and lower back. What’s great about this cushion is that when you are finished, you can fold it away neatly, so it doesn’t have to take up precious space in your living room or bedroom.

5. Smile for the camera

When it comes to the dull chores of brushing our teeth, anything to make the process more invigorating has got to be a winner. So why go for an electric brush over a manual? Well, for the geeks out there, here are some reasonings behind it:

  • Over 75% of dentists now recommend using a rechargeable toothbrush
  • All Oral-B rechargeable toothbrushes are clinically proven to remove more plaque than a manual brush
  • Rechargeable toothbrushes help eliminate human error during brushing, which can lead to more serious gum problems
  • Oral-B 3D technology is clinically proven to remove 2x as much plaque than a manual brush
  • Oral-B is the number 1 most dentist recommended power toothbrush brand worldwide

So there you have it, now you have the reasons why we should go for electric over manual, what about choosing the right one. How about the ORAL-B PROF CARE 2000 toothbrush which has a waterproof handle, is electrically safe and is designed for use in the bathroom. Plug the charging unit into an electrical outlet and place the toothbrush handle on the charging unit. The charging unit also has space for storage of 2 brush heads, so ideal for you and your partner.

6. Orange Peel a thing of the past?

Us ladies spend an unbelievable amount of time stressing about our “lumps and bumps”. It doesn’t matter how much water we drink, the exercise we take or how we diet, we seem to struggle with some element of cellulite! We don’t all want to go under the knife or can afford to have expensive treatments for it at the beauty clinic but we can now have painless home treatments that offer a way of removing that orange peel from our bodies! The Beauty Works Cellu-Smooth uses power of ultrasound that emits waves causing vibrations within the cells, raising the temperature and breaking down the calcified fatty deposits. This leaves the skin ultra smooth! Now, where did I leave that denim skirt I haven’t worn in ages?!

7. Ready, set, VIBRO

Whether you’re aiming to loose weight and look good in your jeans or you are training to compete in a marathon, you may not always have to time to go to the gym, or like me, be a new mum and not have the luxuries of having a babysitter on tap. Therefore, a revolutionary way of improving strength, tone, shape and power through a new form of instability training or vibration training may be just what you need. And to make it even more exciting you can achieve in 10 minutes what would usually take one hour. Now, I’ve got your attention! The Weslo vibration plate with it’s 8 pre set programmes and 16 speed levels with a power from 30-60hz gives the user variation to target specific areas. So, you can get your perfect body shape in no time at all, without the stresses of getting to the gym and worrying about all the fitness freaks staring at you or having to get childcare! Bonus!

8. Shine Therapy

I have crazy curly hair and blow drying is something I don’t normally look forward to. Its quite a chore so to be able to blow-dry, moisturise and condition my hair, at exactly the same time, so it looks shiny and feels great is like a miracle to me!

The Remington D4444 Shine Therapy Hair Dryer features a heat activated delivery system that, at the touch of a button, emits a delicate sheer mist which is evenly ‘blow-dried’ onto your hair. The Shine Therapy Cartridges release shine-enhancing moisturisers and avocado oil, rich in vitamins A, D, and E that results in astounding shine results.

The Vitamin Shine mist is specially formulated to eliminate frizz, dehydration and dullness that can occur with daily drying. So hair feels smoother, softer and in better condition.
How it works – There is a compartment where you insert cartridges which has been specially designed to release enough mist for up to 40 uses. Then you apple the Vitamin Shine mist all over the hair for root- to-tip shine or just to ends and other trouble spots for a boost of healthy shine.

9. Hair today – gone tomorrow

For those of you who cant be doing with daily “defluffing” and don’t like the idea of waxing, then check out the Rio Laser Hair Removal System, an alternative system that is designed for home use. Enjoy the benefits of permanent hair removal without paying for expensive salon treatments.

How does it work? Laser hair removal sends a laser beam to the hair follicle with enough energy to destroy the root, without it affecting the surrounding area.

10. Turn back time

We all want to enjoy the benefits of “facelift” therapy without having to resort to painful and expensive surgery. The Beauty Works Elevate Facial Toner, is a fancy little device that is designed to encourage circulation whilst removing waste matter as well as nourishing and regenerating the skin cells.

The positive effects of using the new Elevate is a clear, toned, firm and glowing appearance.

The Elevate tones up the muscles and stimulates a fresh supply of blood to the skin tissue. This combined effect actually helps to slow down the appearance of the ageing process. And who said you couldn’t turn back time?!
