Unlike trendy crumpled-paper background textures, cellulite-holding skin not ironed out smoothly is as uncool as finding the last bit of milk in the work refrigerator (yay!) and then realising it’s sour (awww). Straighten out your skin with today’s Groupon: ten slimming and toning sessions and two dream weigh body wraps for R599 at Umhlanga Holistic Health and Beauty.
When winter deviously makes you pack on extra padding, it neglects to tell you that after the cold subsides, you’ll eventually have to take it all off if you want to avoid looking like the giant marshmallow bad-guy in Ghostbusters. However, when the padding becomes one with your body, chances of it giving itself up willingly are as slim as a European supermodel, which is why professionals are sought out for their expertise.
Headlining the show for spectacular slimming and toning treatments is Umhlanga Holistic Health and Beauty’s wellness sessions and their team of ridiculously good professional body handlers. Situated in the heart of Umhlanga, the spa boasts a tranquil yet informative atmosphere where patients are encouraged to put their best foot forward and leave their extra packaging 100 steps behind. Groupon clasped firmly in your hand, the spa’s slimming and toning sessions will shape and transform your body into a better version of itself with quality products and a “let it go” attitude.
By combining the use of heat wraps and toning, the treatment encourages centimetre loss off your body cellulite while toning the muscles for a more refined look. While these sessions ensure you shed your winter worries, the dream weigh body wraps speeds up the process, dismantling fat cells permanently. Similar to hands on the contents of a tub of play dough, each 45-minute session will mould you perfectly, shedding up to two centimetres in the process.
Body slimmed and toned and the equivalent of “beach-ready”, your bathing costume will beckon a fitting, while your air conditioner plays along to a sunny Christmas in July setting.
Slimming Fact: In an old brochure on one of those London buses, a small blurb highlights the pros and cons of swinging on a tyre swing. One of the pros is that if pushed at least 250 metres high, the adrenaline rush in the person on board reaches levels so high that centimetres are likely to be lost.
