These Are The Secrets Of Beautiful, Healthy Skin

Report for a beauty inspection, pleaseSome people care better for their furniture or their car than for their own skin. Often we don’t notice it until it plays up and feels tense, itchy or burning. Yet the skin is our outer shield that keeps it all together. We can’t change our skin, therefore we should treat it well.

The hands

Our hands are always in action. They are constantly exposed to the sun and the elements, and as a result, they develop pigment spots and wrinkles. Cold and wind can dry out the skin and lead to chapped hands. Therefore, pack a tube of hand cream in your ‘hand’-bag as a matter of prudence.

For a more intensive conditioning treatment, use a nourishing cream with urea. Apply generously to your hands and protect with cotton gloves. Ideally, leave on overnight. Or book a paraffin bath with your next manicure (also available with pedicure).


The arms

Moving upwards from the hands: It doesn’t matter so much on cold days, but as soon as the T-Shirt season starts again, neglected arms become noticeable. If they are rough, flabby and pimply, they are not an attractive sight. That’s why we should ensure sufficient circulation during the jumper season. Regular massages with a sisal glove, and a body peeling do miracles. Don’t forget to apply moisturiser afterwards. For extremely dry skin, massage Argan oil into still moist skin.

Here is a home remedy for hard and dark elbows: Cut a lemon in half, lightly squeeze out the halves, and press your elbows into them. The fruit acid dissolves hardened dead skin cells and brightens skin. Free weights and good old push-ups firm upper arms. If classic push-ups are too hard, try standing in front of a wall, resting your hands against the wall at shoulder height, and do ‘push-ups’ against the wall.


The back

Our back is rarely included in our care program. It’s usually quite undemanding, as it’s covered with plenty of sebaceous glands, so that the skin stays supple.

A massage brush with a long handle, or a massage belt, can help remove pimples and dead skin cells. If you suffer from permanent pimples or acne, you should consult your doctor.


The bum

Our bum is often equally neglected. Considering the fact that we sit on it for the largest part of our life, it deserves special care. The right exercises help: squats, lunges, or lifting both legs alternatingly on all fours at a 90 degree angle. If you want a more targeted treatment, visit a HYPOXI-Studio.

The alternating high pressure and vacuum increases circulation in the buttocks, firms the connective tissue and stimulates lymph flow.


The legs

Let’s get to the legs. For many women, cellulite has made itself right at home here. This is because women have more fat deposits than men, and store water more readily. In addition, the female connective tissue is weaker, and unfortunately not only at the belly, where it makes sense for pregnancy, but everywhere.

Whereas many anti-cellulite products are rather disappointing, the HYPOXI combination training offers the right solution for unsightly orange-peel skin. While you lie down and relax for 20 minutes, the HD PressureSuit stimulates the skin at the problem areas, activates the lymphatic system and regenerates the connective tissue, followed by a 30-minute session with the HYPOXI-Trainer (without breaking into a sweat).


The feet

If you want to be not only light on your feet, but also walk on beautiful and smooth feet, you need to care for them regularly. This includes regular pedicures, removal of calluses with a pumice, and a daily foot massage with foot cream, especially at the heels. And don’t forget your feet at your next whole body peeling!


The décolleté

Last but not least there is the décolleté. Its subcutaneous fatty tissue is very thin, and the skin is prone to creases and needs to be protected from the sun even more than other parts of the body. This is often the first place to show the harmful effects of UV rays.
