Vintage Style Swimwear Makes A Comeback

In a scene in the 1956 film, High Society, Grace Kelly kneels poolside pushing a model boat, True Love, across the still water. She wore a white halter-neck swimsuit, which ended with a short white, ruffled skirt. Never had the swimsuit seemed so elegant.

Swimwear trends don’t move in quite the same cycles as other fashion trends. That’s because it’s hard to reinvent the bikini or swimsuit: the need to balance functionality and design means that designers are limited to what they can actually do. So it would seem that many designers are drawing on vintage styles from the 1950-1960’s as inspiration for their collections this season.

Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection featured pristine, white understated swimwear, reminiscent of Grace’s in High Society.

With summer just around the corner, the high street is full of swimwear already. But what do all women want to go with their new beach wear?

A beach body.

At Natura we can help you look great in any swimwear with our cellulite treatment, Velashape. Popular amongst celebrities and sports stars alike, this treatment delivers fantastic results.

How Does It Work?

It works by precision-heating the upper layers of the skin and the deeper tissue, while specially designed rollers massage the area, smoothing the skin and combating the appearance of cellulite. This system of light vacuum and deep massage increases the metabolism of stored energy, shrinks the fat cells and vastly improves lymphatic drainage, banishing unsightly lumps and bumps.

Available from March 21st prices start at £150 a treatment, with discounts on courses.

Extra care for eyes

The skin around your eyes is some of the most delicate in the whole of your body – it’s around ten times thinner than the rest of our facial skin. It’s therefore an area that we need to take extra care of, especially if we want to avoid a tired and aged appearance.

Sensitive skin

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and becomes thinner due to the breakdown of collagen. This is especially evident around the eyes, as this skin is already thinner than normal. The skin around our eyes is constantly in motion through blinking, moving and facial expressions– this can add up to over 10 000 movements per day! Such an active and delicate area of skin needs special attention to keep it looking its best.

Extra TLC

As with all our skin, diet plays an important part. Under eye puffiness can be made worse by salty foods and dehydration. Make sure to rehydrate your skin with plenty of water and avoid excessive alcohol, which has dehydrating properties. Smoking also has negative effects on the skin, as it causes blood vessels to constrict, making it harder for nutrients to be absorbed – which breaks down collagen faster.

Similarly, rubbing the eye area with harsh make up wipes or due to allergies can put extra strain on the skin. Constant pulling of the skin can cause it to lose elasticity faster, especially around the eyes which lack the reparative oil glands of the rest of the skin.

The eyes can be the first to show signs of age. By using gentle skin products with anti-oxidants, vitamins and skin plumping properties you can help resist fine lines and wrinkles. A good moisturiser or night cream can help to replenish the skin as well.

If you want to tackle crow’s feet, fine lines and wrinkles around your eye area, there’s also a range of treatments available. Here at Natura our gold standard procedures will give you natural results, whether you opt for botox treatments or our laser treatment for sagging eyelids.

So, to get bright and rejuvenated eyes, take care of the skin around them – this will leave you looking younger, fresher and ready for the spring.
