Here at RMUK we offer a wide range of spa treatments to help your journey to wellness. Our use of Guinot and Aveda spa products will be the perfect reset button to a healthier you.

Toxins can build up in our bodies a number of ways: Poor diet, alcohol intake, and a sedentary lifestyle being the main culprits.

Wondering how you can get back to healthiness?  Detoxifying with a lymph drainage massage technique is one answer.

LYMPH DRAINAGE
The lymphatic system has lots of vessels, and fluid called a lymph. This system is extremely important to your immune system, so keeping it in good shape is important. Lymph drainage helps the lymph fluid move more freely, and the reason it’s good for you? The fluid removes the toxins, excess water and bacteria out.

The benefits to this are as follows:

TO THE BODY – Reduces swelling from affected areas by removing protein and wastes products, and helps maintain a healthy immune system.

TO THE FACE – Reduces facial and eye puffiness, along with being great for anti-ageing. Lymph drainage supports clearer, cleaner skin.

DETOXIFYING SPA TREATMENTS
AVEDA AROMA BODY WRAP (90 MINS)
The Aveda aroma body wrap is a warming, detoxifying, seaweed body treatment. Using Aveda products with a dry skin brushing techniques. Afterwards, you will experience a seaweed body mask, plus a head and facial massage to help you unwind.

It’s not just your body that needs detoxifying though! Our faces carry toxins too, which can make our skin appear grey, sluggish and lifeless. With that in mind, how about combining your Aveda Aroma Body Wrap with one of our NEW TULASARA facials? This facial also works with dry brushing, and a lymph drainage massage – this technique lends itself to the ultimate detox treatment. Our TULASRA facial can also be booked as a stand alone treatment for 30 minutes, 60 minutes or even 90 minutes!

winter-hair-care-guide-1024x643 The Ultimate Winter Hair Care Guide

Winter has well and truly set in, and unfortunately our hair can be the first to show signs of it. Experiencing dry and dull hair with signs of breakage, but unsure how you can combat it? Don’t worry, with our ultimate guide to winter hair care tips, you’ll be celebrating silky smooth, healthy hair in no time!

  • Limit your use of blow dryers and curling irons – Your hair is drier in the colder months, and using heated appliances adds to this, meaning more damage and breakage. Avoid where possible, and if you’re staying indoors, give your hair a break and leave to dry naturally.
hair-curling-tongs-1024x683 The Ultimate Winter Hair Care Guide
  • Don’t over-brush! Your hair is more brittle during wintertime, so make sure you’re gentle with it. Comb through your hair with a wide tooth-comb, followed by a tangle teezer to avoid as much breakage as possible.
  • Regular trims – Your hair is prone to split ends in winter, so by having regular trims, you’ll be preventing split ends from travelling up and causing irreparable damage.
  • Less is more; avoid washing your hair everyday. This isn’t just for the cold months, but it’s even more important around this time of year. Washing your hair frequently strips it of the natural oils and dries out. Dry shampoo is your friend!
  • SLS-free moisturising shampoo and conditioners are a must. Many shampoos and conditioners contain sulphates which are extremely strong on your hair. Great for a clarifying clean every now and again, but certainly too harsh for the winter as they’re simply too drying for your hair and scalp.
  • Resist the urge to have a hot shower – We know it’s freezing, and the last thing you want is a cold shower, but opt for warm instead of hot… your hair and skin will thank you! Washing your hair with lukewarm water will help lock in the moisture and give your hair extra shine, instead of drying it out like hot water will.
  • Use leave-in conditioner after every wash, focusing on the ends than the roots – this is where you have the most breakage from exposure to heat.
  • Heat protection spray is a MUST if you’re going to blow-dry, or use any other form of heated appliance on your hair!
  • Treat your tresses to a weekly hair mask – a deep conditioning treatment can do wonders bringing moisture back in the winter months.
  • Oil treatments are just what the hairdresser ordered! Whether it’s argan, coconut or almond oil, hot or otherwise, you’ll see a noticeable difference to your hair – not to mention they’re great at taming fly-aways which we’re prone to during winter.
  • Cover up – One of the best ways to protect your hair from the harsh weather is to simply cover it up! Plus you’ll stay extra toasty – win/win situation right?! That being said, you’ll need to make sure that you don’t cover your head too tightly or restrict circulation to your scalp.
  • Updos aren’t just stylish, they’re functional too. Having your hair up will help to protect from the elements if you’re not interested in having hat-hair. Try wearing styles that don’t need much maintenance. You might be tempted to comb your hair throughout the day or top it up with hairspray/volumiser. The extra manipulation can cause an increase in shedding as well as those annoying split ends.
  • Smart bond love – If you’re having your hair coloured, be sure to opt for Smart bond by Loreal! This revolutionary new product is on everyone’s lips and really works wonders on rebuilding the structure of the hair whilst colouring, perfect for frazzled hair needing a little TLC. Smart bond by Loreal is now available at RM-UK, so next time you book in for a colour, make sure you ask for more information on how you can add life back into your locks!

Brazilian Waxing

 

The professional beauty therapists at the RMUK Hair and Beauty Salon in Leeds are all highly trained in the wide variety of methods used for waxing. To read about all our methods of waxing please visit:

The Ultimate Guide to Hair Removal at RMUK

waxing Brazilian WaxingEvery one of our clients has a different expectation of what is involved in a Brazilian wax. Some clients only wish to have the removal of any hair around the bikini line, others may wish to have a particular shape left on the front and some may wish to have all pubic hair removed totally, our highly trained staff can happily create the look you want.

 

The quality of wax used for Brazilian waxing is very important and we only use waxes that are perfect for your skin to ensure the procedure does not cause increased redness and skin trauma to the immediate area of skin affected.

 

By applying hot wax, the RMUK beauty therapist will effectively and efficiently remove hairs from the pubic area so that the end result is what you specifically require.

 

RMUK specialise in Brazilian treatments and ensure that you are totally relaxed and comfortable. Any questions can be addressed before and during the treatment.

 

After care is very important and the RMUK professional beauty therapists will make recommendations of how to maintain the Brazilian wax and at what stage to return to the salon for your next treatment.laura-moura Brazilian Waxing
