Is Your Lady Garden Off Limits?
For most waxing virgins (if not all) of us, the first thing that pops into our head when “bikini waxing” is mentioned is Nooooo! Believe me, I’ve been there and I know.
Soon, the summer will be upon us, and us ladies including you will be preparing to hit the beach or pool, attend a few spa days, or even go on our hols.
But here’s the rub: trying to get our bikini line to be perfectly smooth, with zero ingrown hairs, grazes, or red bumps can be hard. There are a few options for hair removal, however, waxing is the most popular option for taking care of the bikini line, women are ditching razors and welcoming wax with open arms.
Feeling a little reluctant and uncomfortable about the whole idea? We have scouted some of the most FAQs of bikini waxing to help ease your mind.
What are the Benefits of Bikini Waxing?
Truth is, getting your first bikini isn’t going to be a whole lot of fun for you. However, considering the increasing number of women opting for wax by the day, I’m pretty sure no one would be willing to step into that new territory if it didn’t have its benefits.
Waxing pulls the hair right at the root, giving you a flawlessly smooth skin without the stubble.
Waxing makes the hair grow slower and finer for most people.
Waxing gives you a smoother skin over a long period without the itchy feeling due to slower regrowth.
Waxing is fast and produces better results.
Waxing done by a professional leads to smooth silky skin with minimal discomfort.
What's It Like Getting A Bikini Wax?
As a newbie to bikini waxing, you must have heard a lot of scary stories and are probably wondering what it’s like. Well, for me I think the build up was the worst, as I didn’t know what to expect or what it was going to be like - this not knowing was the worst part of my waxing experience the first time. As soon as the job was done, I found out it wasn’t as bad as I had thought it was going to be.
I’m Embarrassed Stripping Off, Any Advice?
I admit, the thought of lying naked on the table while having a total stranger all up in your leggy business feels a bit awkward, but the reality is that there really is no need for you to be nervous or embarrassed. If it makes you feel any better, they are professionals and just like your gynecologist, they have literally seen so many “va jay jays.” They don’t care, they are only interested in getting the job done.
Will It Hurt?
There’s a whole lot of stories accompanying bikini waxing, especially about the pain. Well, as much as I hate to tell you this, waxing is uncomfortable, especially the first time. The good news is it gets easier! If you wax regularly, the less uncomfortable the experience becomes.
There you have it, ladies. Remember, don’t be afraid to speak up. Tell the waxer which style you would like and how little or how much hair you want taken off.

Male grooming: Gender Neutral Salon Treatments For Guys.
Not too long ago, male grooming
was limited to a quick shave and
a haircut. If a man went above
and beyond the most basic of
hygiene, people treated those men
as if they had been stripped of
their masculinity. Now, male
grooming has seen a surge of
popularity, as bare chests, smooth
skin, and a well-groomed
appearance are becoming the trends.
It's now not only acceptable to keep yourself well groomed, but expected for a variety of reasons. Men tend to be rougher on their bodies, including their skin, and it may surprise you to discover that taking care of your hands and face can turn back the clock on your personal appearance.
If your lady feels like she needs a machete down there, you are less likely to get the same level of attention in bed. Women seldom mention their issues with male body hair, but in private polls, women have overwhelmingly preferred less hair in intimate areas, and little to no hair on a man's back.
If your girlfriend isn't wild about cuddling up to Chewbacca, getting your intimate areas waxed can be a pleasant surprise for her.
If you'd rather not go that far, waxing can also be done on other areas of the body, such as tidying eyebrows and cleaning up hair on the armpits our shoulders.
There are few things more unquestionably feminine sounding than a facial, but it actually makes more sense for dudes to get one. Shaving is hard on skin, and so are many of the outdoor activities and sports men frequently enjoy.
A facial can scrub away old skin and make men look noticeably younger and more put together. Healthy, good looking skin isn't just about impressing women. It can also make a difference in job opportunities. With today's economic instability, finding a good job and keeping it takes an extra level of effort. Many men have taken to getting their dead, dry skin scrubbed off professionally to go along with their tailored suits and other interview prep work.
While nail polish and fake nails are still distinctly feminine, getting nail and hand care is now gender neutral. Men tend to use their hands more and do heavier work with them, leading to more damage that needs cared for. A manicure can help remove heavy callouses, smooth chipped finger nails, and keep hands healthy so they are presentable.
The next time you visit a salon, look around. You may be surprised by the number of men who are getting treatments. Taking care of your body is no longer just a matter of working muscles or drinking protein shakes. Hair and skin care have become a powerful and important part of being a man.
If you're interested in making some changes to your grooming, call around to find a salon that offers male packages, especially if you plan to get waxing done. It's important to choose someone with experience who can help you look your best.

How to Prepare for Your Classic, Express Or Russian Lash Extensions AppointmentCongratulations on booking your eyelash extensions appointment!However, to get the best results it is important to come properly prepared for your appointment. Taking these few easy steps will help ensure that your lashes last.
1.Shower or bathe the night or morning before your appointment.
We recommend avoiding water (for 24hrs) and steamy environments for the first 48 hours after your eyelash application. This gives your lashes the time to set a strong bond in the first 48 hours that it takes for them to set, so that they last as long as possible.
2.Remove all eye makeup.
Come to your appointment fresh faced (or at least without eye makeup). Removing mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, and strip lash glue before your appointment is key to a great application. If this isn’t an option for you as you have an event before your appointment, book a lash cleanse so you can ensure your lashes are squeaky clean and ready for application. Also if you have just removed your lashes with professional eyelash glue remover please wash your lashes thoroughly before your new application, to ensure your lashes can bond effectively. Your lash technician will want to see your lashes in their cleanest,healthiest, and most natural state.
3.Take out your contacts.
While it is very safe to get eyelash extensions from a qualified lash technician, we are still working around your delicate eyes. For your own health and safety we advise a glue test at least 48 hours before your appointment although extreme reactions are rare they do happen, and it is better to be safe then sorry. You can bring a contact lens case and solution to your appointment as contact lenses will need to be removed or just wear glasses for the day.
If you are thinking, “Where can I get eyelash extensions near me?” Then look no further. Delucia Holistics is Manchester premier lash expert. If you are looking to the safe, easy solution to your lash concerns, we can help. To book your lash extensions appointment call us on 07449 844 122, or visit our website.

Chakra balancing: your guide to a more balanced you.
Have you ever lost a loved one, experienced a break-up, or grieved in some way? Do you remember feeling that pain in your heart, even though there is no physical reason for the emotion to be connected with your heart? That pain is a blocked chakra, the grief blocks the chakra known for love and compassion, located at the level of the heart. When we feel that pain in our heart, we are feeling a blocked chakra.
Keeping your chakras balanced can help with a whole range of emotional and physical issues. These 7 points of energy are located in different points of the body, and correspond to different problems. The 1st chakra, or “The Root” is located in the tailbone, and when imbalanced can cause the sufferer to experience problems with arthritis, sciatica, and digestive issues. As you move farther up the body you have different chakras that correlate to different issues.
If you think your chakras may be out of balance, you can bring them back into alignment in a variety of different ways. If you have a specific wound you are focused on healing, you may need to find the chakra that correlates to it before you can begin, but it is helpful to go over all the chakras. Not sure what they are? Here is a quick overview:
The Main 7 Chakras and Signs They Need Balancing
1. The Root
Anxiety, Base Fear, Nightmares
Arthritis, sciatica, digestive
2. The Sacral
Clingy, numbness, self esteem issues
Infertility, back pain
3. The Solar Plexis
Victim Complex, lack of confidence
Digestive issues, liver problems
4. The Heart
Grief, shyness, loneliness
Heart problems, poor circulation, asthma, lung issues
5. The Throat
Thyroid, hearing, mouth ulcers
6. The Third Eye
Migraines, sinus infections, seizures
7. The Crown
Aimlessness, lack of spirituality
Neurological problems, nerve problems, Alzheimer's
These chakras start with the Root at your tailbone and go all the way to the top of the head with the Crown. In order to balance your chakras, you can find help in a number of ways:
A reiki healer can use spiritual energy to pass over your body and open your chakras one by one, unblocking those that can't flow properly, and balancing energy. Reiki healers work by manipulating energy, and it is usually a hands free proces.
You can also do this yourself through meditation, visualizing each chakra as a ball of colored energy, and opening them yourself one at a time. If one of your chakras are blocked, don't be surprised if opening them comes with a surge of emotions you weren't prepared for. The release of a blocked chakra can often come with a release of the pent up emotions associated with the chakra as well.
Last but not least, you can perform chakra yoga to target specific chakras and open them. Different postures correlate to different chakras, such as ones involving the hips targeting the Root. You may need to sign up for a chakra class in order to do this properly, but youtube videos are also available to get you started.
If you have questions regarding Chakra balancing let us know in the comments. Chakra balancing can be beneficial for everyone. Whether you are just curious, or are dealing with real and physical symptoms, taking a look at your chakras and making sure they are flowing properly is a wonderful way to help yourself.
