The collagen sheet mask contains marine collagen to re hydrate dry areas to further increase elasticity, tighten and firm the surface layer of the skin., Collagen is a protein found in connective tissue, skin studies have proven that collagen consumption can increase the skins elasticity and moisture which declines during the aging process.

Thalion Oxygenating and Firming Facial at Stairway 2 Beauty, Athenry
I recently tried out the Thalion Oxygenating and Firming Facial at Stairway 2 Beauty, Athenry. I am a massive fan of seaweed based products so I was interested to see if what I had heard about this facial was actually true.
I was super impressed with the knowledge that my therapist had about Thalion and the ingredients in this facial. Thalion are leading experts in marine cosmetics and harvest the richest of seaweeds from the Iron Ore Sea, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve and these are used in this particular facial.
Using double exfoliation to ensure that the serums are really well absorbed into the skin, and finishing with a seaweed mask that completely covered my eyes and neck, this Thalion facial is the ultimate in luxurious skincare. One of the main features of this facial is that it concentrates on getting your skin prepared for the mask so quite a bit of time is used to exfoliate and prepare the skin so that it absorbs all the benefits of the seaweed mask. While the masque was working its magic, she gave me a deeply relaxing arm and hand massage, which was a lovely relaxing touch. The mask is cold but not uncomfortable and sets so when it is ready it was peeled off my face in one piece.
The Result: My skin felt refreshed and rejuvenated. There was a definite improvement in the texture of my skin and it lost its tired, dull appearance and lines and wrinkles were greatly reduced.

How can I get the best out of my tan and if I’m going on holiday should I go for a darker one than I normally get?
Get the best out of every spray tan by taking care of your skin first.

How do I know if I’m using the right skin care?
Unless your a trained Beauty Therapist or Dermatologist you cannot diagnose skin type, which adds to a lot of money losses and skin problems on the consumer as they spend twice the amount on cheaper big brand stores where no one is aware of skin type or ingredients which do nothing for their skin, only clog up their bathroom with allot of useless bottles of…… More Here
What’s better about ‘Airbase’ Make-Up?
Because Airbase was commissioned by Judy Naaké from St. Tropez self-tan and designed by Oscar nominated make-up artist Ann Buchannan, it was specifically designed to make the person wearing it look airbrushed and flawless on ‘HD’ (High Definition) screens and lenses, i.e. film camera and photography. As we all know HD is able to pick up any flaws so…… More Here
What is Threading?
Threading is better in the long run for your skin as it takes the hair including the blonde fluffy hair, which a tweezer can’t get unless you spend hours doing your brows. Yet it doesn’t take any layer of skin with it, which over time effects the amount of collagen and elastin produced in that area, thus causing a slackening of the eye lid, lines of the lip etc. Alot of our clients alternate their appointments between waxing and threading, however allot…… More Here
