Selectif Pro has launched an ultrasonic probe that is designed to remove unwanted hair. The device works by channeling ultrasound directly to the hair root via a probe. The ultrasound is then converted into heat and the temperature increase succeeds in inhibiting hair growth. To ensure that the ultrasound is directed to the hair root only, the hair follicle is gripped by a tweezer-like hand piece – surrounding skin is unaffected because the energy is applied directly to the hair shaft.
As winter peeps around the corner, cold air and dry skin along with it, it’s time to prep that skin and stock those cupboards. There are so many dry skin remedies available to choose from that it is sometimes a relief to just try a home-remedy; the old-fashioned kind of advice that a grandmother would give. As all skin is different, these remedies may or may not work but they are considered “natural remedies”. Nonetheless, if you have any existing skin complaint, sensitivity, allergies or your just unsure – it’s always wise to consult with your GP before trying any of these suggestions.
The change in season is a perfect time to satisfy the need to spend as we update our spring/summer wardrobe and make-up palate. All fashionistas are waiting with baited breath to find out what make-up trends are going to dominate this year’s autumn/winter season.

The varnish retails at £2.99; cheap enough to purchase all four flavours and do a bit of mix and match – create a fruit cocktail by mixing the shades up with some funky design work. In all of the excitement, one almost forgets that summer 2010 has pretty much said its goodbyes. Does that mean that the novelty of Rimmel’s I Love Lasting Finish Fruities Nail Polish range polish has to be over? Not in my books. Black is back this autumn, in all shapes and forms, and guess what? Everything matches with black, including Apricot, Cranberry, Strawberry and Lemon. It’s time to let those creative juices flow.
Now that 2010’s decadent summer dalliances with delicious cocktails, delectable chocolates and delightful pastries have come to an end, it’s time to lay the Pimms, picnics and barbeques on the beach to rest. Yes ladies, it’s detox time! Autumn offers the perfect opportunity to get that slightly misshapen summer bod back in shape so that it can fit into a killerific outfit for that end-of-the-year Christmas do.

The process of detoxification is not a quick fix weight loss solution but rather a step in the right direction to healthy eating, which may in turn assist with weight loss (if accompanied by exercise).
