If wedding bells are on the horizon, fitting into your wedding dress can top your list of priorities. No matter how many fittings you attend, the thought of looking anything less than perfect on your big day can be daunting. Fortunately, many beauty treatments can help you shed a few pounds, shape up and trim down before your wedding day. Here are the top three slimming beauty treatments for brides to be. Which one will you try?
1. Recovery Massages
Fad diets come and go but the best way to shed body fat is to follow a sensible exercise program. Whether you prefer to jog, cycle or swim, aiming to complete three 30-minute sessions of exercise per week is your best hope of keeping your fat levels in check. The main reason why people find exercising so difficult to stick with is that their bodies take time to recuperate. As you exercise, your muscles break down and need time to repair themselves before you can exercise again. Recoverymassages at a local beauty salon can aid this process and help your muscles recover and develop faster. This will help you stick with your exercise regime in the run-up to your wedding.
2. Anti-Cellulite Treatments
The second treatment in favor with brides to be specifically targets cellulite. A recent report by Bayrakci Tuna V et al into the effects of massage on fat mass in women confirms that massage can help break down cellulite. In the report, women with cellulite found that all massage techniques were ‘effective in decreasing the regional fat values of the patients with cellulites’. Most beauty salons offer anti-cellulite treatments as research-backed ways to help brides slim down before their wedding day.
3. Anti-Aging Facial
A perennial favorite amongst women of all ages is the anti-aging facial. While the exact oils, treatments and ointments used by spas vary from place to place, a common feature in anti-aging facials is the use of collagen induction therapy. Hand-held rollers such as a Dermaroller® containing micro needles are rolled over the patient’s face. Dermarollers work by producing thousands of microscopic needle holes in the dermis, which prompts the skin to produce new collagen. This collagen repairs the skin and softens out wrinkles and fine lines. Dermarollerscan be purchased for home use but experts recommend having it professionally done to minimize the risk of infection. It is excellent for tired skin that is losing its smoothness and becoming slack around the mouth and jaw. If you are interesting in anti-aging facials, you should be warned that it is no instant fix. You will ideally need at least three sessions, spaced six weeks apart and should expect to start seeing results only after the second session.
Whether you go to a regular salon, or a beauty salon for brides, these three treatments can help you look slimmer and younger in the run up to your wedding. If you have discovered any other treatments, let us know what worked for you. Leave us a comment below!
