The benefits of seaweed in our products

In our products, we use organic seaweed powder and liquid seaweed which is rich in vitamins (including vitamins B12, vitamin E, amino acids, minerals.)

When applied to the skin seaweed treatments act as a powerful purifier that draws out impurities while imparting benefits to the skin.  It helps to slough off dead skin cells from the surface of the skin which gives the skin a healthy, revitalized, and glowing appearance.  Seaweed contains fatty acids, which makes it suitable for use on irritated skin as it helps retain the skin’s moisture levels, and alleviate chapping, cracking, and roughness caused by dryness of the skin.  It can also be used for all skin types.

It is also a natural anti-inflammatory, it can also reduce redness and blotchiness in the skin.  

A seaweed bath can be good for those that have psoriasis, acne, aid back and muscular pain. It can also ease rheumatism, arthritis and is good for circulation.  

Caution:  If you are pregnant or sensitive to Iodine you should avoid using our products.

What is Nail Stamping

Nail stamping is a new nail art technique that involves transferring a design to your nails by using a nail stamper.  You apply nail polish on the stamping plate and then you use the stamping tool to apply the design to the nails.

Tools needed

Stamping Plate
A stamping plate is a metal plate that has a variety of designs engraved on them.

Nail Stamper
A nail stamper is used to transfer the design from the stamping plate to your nails.

10 Steps for a Perfect Pedicure

Step 1:
Make sure that you remove all previous nail polish from your nails before using a non-acetone nail polish remover (acetone can be very damaging and strong).  Then using a buffing block you can smooth the surface of your nails to make them look even.

Step 2:
Soaking is an important step because it will soften your feet making it easier to effectively remove any dry skin.  You will need to fill a tub with warm water and add some Epsom salts to it.  Soak your feet for about 10 minutes.  After the 10 minutes is up rinse your feet and dry them carefully.

Step 3:
Next is to exfoliate your feet.  You can wear exfoliating gloves if you want to while massaging your feet in a circular motion to eliminate dry and loose skin.

Step 4:
Once your feet are looking as good as new and free from all that unnecessary dry skin, it is time to make them soft again by moisturising them.  Try giving yourself a mini massage when applying the moisturiser and making sure it reaches in between your toes, ankles and up your leg a little bit.

Step 5:
Now that your feet are smoother than ever it is time to start grooming your toenails.  Making sure you never clip too close to the skin, leaving some room for you to file afterward.  cut each nail evenly making all of them the same length.

Step 6:
After clipping your toenails make sure that your toenails are extra dry before you start filing.  Place the file directly under the nail and start filing very gently.  You can give your nails a square shape or a soft shape (round) whichever you prefer.

Step 7:
Use cuticle oil to soften your cuticles.  Let it soak for a few minutes and then start pushing the cuticles back.  you can use an orange nail stick to do this.  Do it very gently and carefully so that you don’t damage them, pushing towards the nail base and holding the stick at a slight angle.

Try to avoid cutting your cuticles as they work as a protective barrier keeping fungus away from underneath your nails especially your toenails.

Step 8:
There must be no traces of moisturiser on your nails for this step.  The key to a long lasting pedicure is clean nails, so rub nail polish remover on your toenails with some cotton balls to ensure that whatever colour you choose will adhere properly and lasts longer.  If you want to you can use toe separators to make the painting process a little bit easier

Step 9:
Start applying the base coat first smoothly and evenly.  Try to make it as thin as possible when applying and always apply nail polish like professionals – start in the middle and then work your way to the sides.  When the base coat is dry you can now apply two coats of the nail polish colour of choice.  The first colour coat doesn’t have to be perfect just make sure it covers the whole area of your nail.  For the second coat, the aim is to apply it thoroughly.  You can choose whether you want to leave a small colourless space between the polish and the base of the nail or if you want the polish to be as close to the base as possible.

For the final step add the top coat which will give your nails the shine and flawless finish

Step 10:
Now it is about trying to keep your toenails beautiful for the next couple of weeks.  After the first week, apply a second coat of top coat polish this will refresh the shine and make your pedicure last longer

 

10 Steps for a Perfect Manicure

Step 1: 
Make sure all current nail polish is removed.

Step 2:
Clip nails first if necessary and then file (in one direction) to get your tips square, round or somewhere in between.  Buff tops and sides of your nails lightly with a nail buffer (not your emery board) to create a smooth surface.

Step 3:
Soften your cuticles with oil or lotion and then push back gently with a cuticle stick.  Your cuticles  protect your nails from bacteria and keep them soft, so avoid cutting them.

Step 4:
Exfoliate hands, wrists and forearms with a hand scrub that eliminates dead skin cells and replenishes moisture.  Use a nailbrush to clean under nails.  Wash hands afterward and dry them thorouhly.

Step 5:
You can put some hand cream on your hands to avoid smudging almost-dry nail polish later.  take the opportunity to give yourself a mini hand massage – just because you’re not at the spa doesn’t mean you can’t relax.  To finish wipe each nail with nail polish remover.

Step 6:
Apply a base coat to hydrate and protect the nails and to prevent them from chipping.  Wait for 2 minutes between each coat, starting with the base coat.

Step 7:
Now for the fun part.  Apply a coat of your favourite nail polish being sure to get the brush all the way down to the cuticle and into the corners of the nail.  Maximum coverage on the first coat makes the second coat a breeze.

Step 8:
After two minutes apply the second coat of nail polis.  Sheer glazes may require a third coat for full coverage.

Step 9:
Apply the topcoat which protects your manicure from chipping and adds shine to the nails.

Step 10:
Clean up any mistakes or wobbly edges by wrapping a piece of cotton ball soaked in nail polish remover around the end of your cuticle pen and carefully going over the edges.  If you are using nail polish remover pads, simply fold one into a triangle for more precise application.  Let the nails dry an additional five minutes
