I am a licensed aesthetician who cares about the wellness and relaxation of my clients. I like to provide more than superficial beauty (but it doesn't mean that I don't like nail art and designs). I work out of my home (walkout basement with separate entrance for clients) so there is no unnecessary cost added except high standards of safety precautions and quality products.

Ginger bells- a yummy shade of gingerbread

I don't know what you think but I definitely finds this colour is very complimentary to some skin tones and not to everybody and this explains why you get some wow responses and some don't. If you are not sure there is one way to know is to try.

Cleopatra milk bath

Here are some of the beauty secrets from Ancient Egypt that proved efficiency up till today.

Milk Bath, probably you heard these days about the alpha hydroxy acid and its effect as a chemical exfoliant that eats dead skin. It is one of the major ingredients in many skin products sold in the market today. Queen Cleopatra symbol of beauty used to take a Milk bath every day.

One day I had the pleasure of visiting one of her baths in Marsa Matrouh, Egypt. It is located there in the sea, it is a beautiful engraved swimming pool in a huge rock, where fresh seawater enters from the one side and exits from the other. The remains of the chair where Cleopatra would sit at the centre of the bath can still be seen today. It was such a feeling of belonging to a great nation like the ancient Egyptians.

hot oil manicure

A hot oil manicure is a treatment using a blend of oils (I add vitamin E) which has many benefits. It helps to treat dry hands and brittle nails, and the hot oil treatment is also a great way to relieve discomfort from arthritis and stiff joints. Massage is a way to improve circulation and helps nails to grow stronger.
