Those who live in the colder climates say that munching on gingerbread cookies in front of the fire and watching jumbo snowflakes coat the ground with a fresh, blank canvas is the best way to spend Christmas Eve. Obviously, they’ve never experienced sitting on the stoep in the warm evening or hustling through the crowds at the beach on Boxing Day. Celebrate the fact that a sunny, beach-weather Christmas is better than it’s snowy cousin and save up to 60% on getting summer-ready with slimming treatments or waxing at the Skin and Body Improvement Clinic.
Like an unemployed younger sibling, your body’s winter coat of extra-padding and hair can sometimes show up uninvited and just refuse to leave. Luckily, an afternoon in the Skin and Body Improvement Clinic promises to do just what it says on the tin. Staffed by a team of aestheticians with more experience under their stylish belts than the entire cast of an extreme makeover show and calmly nestled on Caledon road, the chic and trendy clinic is the perfect place to give yourself a bit of pampering and ensure that you’re ready to grace the beach once all your Christmas gifts have been unwrapped.
Everyone is always saying that exercise is so important and that the gym is the perfect place to get healthy. What they don’t seem to remember is that gyms can be scary places that can leave you and your tracksuit feeling out of place and demotivated. Luckily, with an electrotherapy slimming treatment from Skin and Body you can get well on your way to that bikini-body you dream of without shelling out for fancy work-out clothes or try to figure out exactly how all the new-fangled equipment works. Using pads placed over specific parts of the body, Electrotherapy stimulates normal exercise without you having to do much of anything. Causing the muscles to contract and relax, it’s almost like the machine is tricking your body into thinking it’s exercising. The electric impulses also help to break down cellulite and detoxify the body, with no need for drinking seaweed smoothies or wrapping yourself in boiled towels.
If it’s excess limb-lint that’s getting you down, console yourself with the fact that there are no follicles too wispy to avoid Skin and Body’s waxen masters. The half-leg, bikini and underarm waxing takes care of the most obvious shave-worthy places and can shave some time off your morning shaving time. It can also ensure that you don’t have to balance your urge to wear a knee-length dress or bikini to the beach with your dread of shaving.
Of course, ‘tis the season to celebrate, so there’s nothing stopping you from getting into the spirit and getting both. You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who’d want to spend their Christmas eve snowy rather than smoother and slimmer.
