What is Threading?

Posted on 13 March, 2016 at 19:20 Comments comments (2)

What is “eyebrow threading”?

Eyebrow threading is an ancient hair-removal technique, practiced for centuries among the most beautiful women of Asia and the Middle East. It is the best alternative to waxing and tweezing. This method creates a graceful brow with clean, well-defined edges that frame the eye.

How does threading work?

Our threading expert takes a thin cotton thread and twists it into a double strand, which then is swept along the skin. With rhythmic – almost hypnotic – movement, the unwanted hairs are secured in the thread and lifted from the follicle with precision and finesse.

Is eyebrow threading painful?

Many of our customers agree that threading causes less discomfort than brow waxing. Because it targets individual hairs, threading keeps skin irritation to a minimum. Excessive pulling on delicate skin around the eyes is eliminated, and for those sensitive to waxing products, there is no exposure to irritants.

How long does threading take?

A simple eyebrow threading can take just 5-7 minutes. The upper lip takes about 3 minutes; a full face thread takes about 15-20 minutes.

Is threading better than waxing?

Yes threading is known to be a superior option to tweezing, sugaring or waxing. This eastern method of hair removal eliminates the chance of your coming in contact with wax that is too hot for tender facial skin. Hair is removed from the root so there’s less of that “grow-back factor.” This extends the time between salon visits, saving time and money and maintenance in front of the mirror! …And, because of the precision involved, “threaders” can hone their artistry, creating perfect brows for everyone’s unique face shape and personality.

What’s the main benefit of threading vs. other hair removal method?

Threading’s main benefit is the manner in which the eyebrow is shaped-not just from underneath, but also from the top. One of the major drawbacks of tweezing, especially when done at home, is that it’s easy to remove the wrong hairs, creating holes or divots in the shape of the brow. Certain thicker hairs on the bottom line of the brow act as supportive “scaffolding” for the entire brow, so if you inadvertently remove the wrong hairs, the whole shape collapses. Then you are left with trying to camouflage your goof until the hairs grow back. Threading eliminates this common mishap.

Skin care bootcamp : Are skin treatments necessary?

Posted on 29 February, 2016 at 22:10 Comments comments (0)

As we grow older, we inevitably come to realise the importance of how putting in the work now can truly pay off later. While this could apply to fitness, relationships and especially your career, it also applies to your skin.

Your skin can tell a story, from bags under the eyes after sleepless nights, to too much time spent under the sun. However, if you look after it well, your skin can also be a testament to your diligence, retaining its plump, youthful appearance as you mature.

But in order to keep your skin in the best condition (even if you have partied late or tanned a lot in the past) it's crucial to take a comprehensive approach with both home skin care products and professional treatments. Think of it like cross-training for your skin.

Building the foundations of a core skin care routine

Day to day skin care is vital in protecting your skin from toxins and dehydration. Fortunately, at BLISS Skin Beaut-ique, we use Ultraceuticals which has a broad range of medical-grade cosmeceuticals products to suit a range of different concerns and skin types.

However, without an understanding of the state of your skin, you can end up choosing products that are incompatible, or ineffective for your needs – almost like trying to use a piece of gym equipment without being shown how.

Enter your personal trainer, A.K.A your Ultraceuticals' skin therapist. Highly trained, we can analyse your skin's condition and prescribe a range of products to target key concerns and help keep you looking your best.

Give your skin a boost with professional treatments

Now that you have your core routine in place, switch things up with a professional treatment. All the treatments on our menu use highly effective  technology, to ensure deep cleansing to prep your skin as well as to ensure the optimum delivery of active ingredients.

Our Skin Workout treatments are specially formulated to allow for ingredients to be better absorbed through the use of targeted exfoliation. They incorporate Mandelic Acid, Lactic and AHA peels to hit the reset button of your skin, and restore it to its youthful best.
