Lashes That Speak for Themselves
For super comfortable, but natural looking lashes that make your eyes pop, head over to Re Salon at the hip Sunset
Mall. The eyelash technician is extremely experienced and was able to assess the best look for the size and shape of my eyes and selected three different lengths, 9, 10, and 11. A protective tape was applied underneath my eyes, and I comfortably rested while each eye took nearly one hour each as she matched every different size of my own lashes to the lash extensions. The end result was lashes that looked like my own, but much better and made me look immediately more glamorous. This is a mustdo treatment for time crunched women who want to look wellgroomed
all the time. The best part is these last three weeks after which they can easily be re-filled.

3 Footlogix where Medi meets Pedi
Taking good care of our feet is something all fashionistas do and the Footlogix Pedicure at Tips and Toes Salon is the best treatment to get rid of hard, stubborn, cracked skin on the heels that otherwise won’t budge as it uses pharmaceutical-grade ingredients and pioneering dermalinfusion technology to provide the perfect quick-fix for all your foot woes. The pedicure started with the standard soaking and cleansing of my feet in the ‘Footlogix Foot
Soak Concentrate’ solution and then my nails were cleaned, filed, and trimmed. The next step was the unique part of this treatment; my calves and feet were scrubbed all the way to the knees using an ‘Exfoliating Seaweed Scrub’ infused with peppermint. After rinsed, a spray softening agent was applied and the scrub was done once more.
After this, a specially created mousse for very dry skin was applied and lastly, a super relaxing massage that literally lulled me to sleep. This is must-do especially for badly neglected feet.

The Primer Hydropeeling Facial
Every woman needs that go-to facial she can turn to before that big event or just to maintain beautifully healthy skin. The non-invasive Primer Hydropeeling Facial is designed to remove impurities from the skin, while at the same time introducing replenishing nutrients. It begins with a consultation with Dr. Lola Ali Muhammad, Medical Aesthetician who after our consultation, began cleansing and steaming to open up the pores and dislodge any residue. The next step-- the Hydradermabrasion--used a suction to remove impurities, leaving the pores open and ready to absorb the replenishing nutrients and antioxidants solutions. Next, depending on your skin type, the doctor applies an exfoliating solution made of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) to dislodge dead skin cells in preparation for the extractions. The clarifying solution is made up of salicylic acid used to dislodge impurities without irritating the skin. Next, the skin conditioning and moisturizing solution is applied which provides the skin with moisture and nutrition. After all of this, a layer of a chemical peel is applied. Afterwards, it is neutralized and a super hydrating mask is applied to infuse moisture into the skin.
After 45 minutes, my skin looked radiant and well hydrated. Even the open pores on my cheeks and forehead looked better. The best part is the darker areas around my upper lip were considerably lighter. With no downtime, you can return to work immediately.
