How “tasty” to become beautiful? “Beauty requires sacrifice!”
Every woman has been familiar with this phrase since childhood. She encourages herself with it when she refuses her favorite cocolate bar or puts harmful and corrosive paint on her hair, when she suffers pain from hair removal or drinks a glass of water instead of a sweet pop. But beauty is not only grandmother’s advice and homemade masks from sour cream and cucumbers. This is an entire industry, this is a business that brings more and more profit and is gaining tremendous momentum in our country. Now it’s not enough just to offer an original service, now it’s important that any therapy, any treatment, in addition to the cosmetic effect, bring joy and pleasure to customers. And in this struggle for the young ladies’ money, cosmetologists and beauty salons are ready for anything! At first, in France, and not so long ago, in Moscow beauty salons a new service appeared – “chocolate therapy”.
You will be asked to take a bath of chocolate, then a scrub of chocolate and cranberries will follow, followed by a chocolate wrap and intensive massage using chocolate. Get ready, the pleasure is not cheap and will require a considerable amount of time, about three hours, but, according to the beauticians, your skin will noticeably rejuvenate. Cocoa, which is found in chocolate, has anti-aging properties. During the entire course, a plate of chocolates will be next to you. It’s nice, of course, but hardly anyone wants to eat them after the second hour spent in a chocolate mass. But now you will definitely feel what it is – “life in chocolate”! The British in their delights went further. One prestigious London beauty salon offers a very exotic procedure for those who are worried about the condition of their hair. First, the hair is washed with shampoo made on the basis of truffles, and then black caviar is applied to them, carefully distributing it along the entire length of the hair and rubbing it into the scalp. It has long been known that black caviar is rich in useful substances and minerals, and such a mixture, indeed, has a good effect on the condition of hair and scalp. But just imagine how much such a pleasure can cost! And then black caviar is a delicacy that you want to see on a piece of bread, and not on your head! In the same London, but not in the same salon, they offer a procedure similar in ingredients – cosmetic masks for the face and body from squeezed black caviar, applied by the caring hands of experienced masseurs. During the procedure, customers are offered two glasses of exquisite Krug champagne. “These masks have extremely stimulating properties,” says the salon manager, “they completely forget about reality and add an indescribable feeling of being on an exotic island.” Yes, yes, and my husband, if I had decided to attend such a procedure, I would have said: “Honey, you completely forgot about reality!” There was another no less seductive miracle procedure – wine therapy. Wine, like chocolate, has a rejuvenating effect on the skin. True, thank God, they will not offer you to plunge into a bathtub filled to the brim with wine! From some fumes it will already be fun and provocatively! No. The secret of wine therapy lies in the use of a unique oil, which is obtained after a special extraction of the seeds and shell of the grapes. The therapy itself consists of a gentle massage using this grape oil. Following the European ones, Moscow beauty salons can also offer a whole range of “delicious” services – fruit wraps made from strawberries with cream, coconut with milk, bananas, mango, kiwi, caramel treatments and banana hair masks, a Japanese bath with milk and sugar epilation … And you just have to choose what you like based on your taste preferences rather than cosmetic reasons (funny, but by the number of words such as “truffle”, “chocolate”, “strawberry” and “caramel”, used in the article, you can I think I wrote some gastronomic essay rather than an article on cosmetics). The only danger of this type of therapy is an allergic reaction that can occur during or after the procedures. Therefore, it is better to consult with your doctor or a specialist in a beauty salon in advance. And remember – all these are auxiliary methods, not medical methods! Longevity and beauty to you!
