There is an enormous amount of pressure on us women to look a certain way, wherever you look; magazines, television, social media, they all seem to only have room for a certain ‘look’. Confidence is a woman’s best friend, if she has
that, nothing can stop her, but a woman who has lost sight of what makes her beautiful is soul destroying. The truth is, there is no amount of change that can pull you out of a self-hating rut if you don’t deal with the problem on a deeper level, which is why Lisa (owner and operator of Visjuene clinic) is leading the cosmetic industry from the heart, woman to woman.
Though Lisa is a professional cosmetic nurse by trade, she is a firm believer in encouraging less permanent alternatives to those who come looking to go under the knife or needle. So in an effort to boost women’s self confidence here at 10 great tips along with treatments you could indulge in at Clinic Visjuene, to help you feel great this summer.

1. Hydration & Daily SPF
I know its something we hear all of the time, but just upping your daily water in-take can have a huge effect on your mood, your skin and your body. Increasing your water intake can flush out all the toxins in your body to improve the health of your skin and your body.
As people age it becomes a lot more difficult for your body to retain water, so by storing more water into your system, you are assisting your body and skin in staying hydrated. Water keeps your body hydrated and refreshed and helps maintain your skins elasticity.
The sun is persistent. It doesn’t take a break and releases harmful UV rays all day, all year round. Even on cloudy days UV rays still break through. Without daily protection you can expect a loss of elasticity an increase in wrinkles and issues with skin’s pigmentation. Think of it like an apple left out too long; it becomes dry, wrinkled and dehydrated. This is the same with your skin without an SPF.

Maintaining a balanced diet (not a crazy new weight loss frenzy) can help you build a healthy, happy body. So often we focus on cutting everything out in the hopes of making drastic changes in a short amount of time, but to ensure permanent, life-changing results you have to change this mindset. Think of food as fuel for your body, give it the right stuff and it will run forever (and look great).
3. Treat yourself
So often we forget that the reason celebrities look so good all of the time is that it is quite literally their job to do so. So, cut yourself some slack and treat yourself to a little you time with a manicure or pedicure.

4. Update your skincare routine
We are all guilty of neglecting our skincare routines from time to time, but putting in that little extra effort can have a huge effect on how you feel about yourself. Show people how naturally beautiful you are by taking care of your face, eyes and neck. Visjuene recommends:

5. Fire & Ice treatment
I love love love the new ‘Fire & Ice Treatment’ has all the benefits of an intense chemical skin peel, without the longer recovery time. The treatment works by raising and reducing the PH balance in your skin, killing off dead skin cells and setting the new ones in action, leaving your skin radiant and dewy.

6. Body Wraps
Perfect pre-holiday or beach visit. Step out with confidence, with a little added boost from the magical powers of the Shrinking Violet body wrap; the revolutionary, clinically proven, inch-loss body wrap. Its active ingredients penetrate cells and the fat busting formula takes off inches right after the first treatment.
Shrinking Violet Body Wrap is a painless, effortless process that successfully removes fat in problem areas, such as thighs, buttocks and abdomen. It is engineered to also work on cellulite, fluid retention, sluggish circulation and detoxification.

7. Diode Laser Hair removal
Tired of unwanted hair? Laser Hair Removal or IPL is the most effective long-term solution to hair removal for men and women! This revolutionary treatment involves light pulses that penetrate the skin and are absorbed by melanin (pigment) present in the hair. The heat produced by the light destroys the hair follicles, causing the hairs to fall out.
Diode Laser Hair removal / IPL Treatment from £35
8. 3D Lipo Med Treatments
3D Lipo is a procedure that helps to get rid of fat in the body. 3D Lipomed is a powerful and revolutionary new approach to liposuction, which does not involve surgery. 3D Lipomed reduces body fat by destroying fat cells instead of merely breaking them up and releasing them into the body.
3D Lipo Med Treatments from £80
9. Carbon Facial
It is great for people with blackheads, enlarged pores and oily or dull skin. It provides an instant refreshed appearance and leaves skin feeling smoother and firmer. A layer of carbon is applied and penetrates deep into the pores. The Laser light is extremely attracted to the carbon and when the laser is over the area, it destroys the carbon, taking dead skin cells and contaminants with it.
Carbon Facial Treatment £50
10. Eyelash Extensions
Eyelash extensions can look as natural or as glamorous as you like, so you can wake up every single morning with perfect lashes. Semi-permanent lash extensions last up to three months with regular infills every 2-3 weeks. Lash extensions are weightless and are applied individually to each of your eyelashes.
Full set of Eyelash Extensions £40
