Home-Spa Treatments

Healthy skin care begins at home, if your skin looks terrific, you’ll feel beautiful all over. Home-Spa treatments are on the rise, many prefer the intimacy  and comfort of their own home instead of busy spa, for a personalized and efficient treatment

Let’s improve our skin by bettering our habits

  1. Time is often the cause of neglected and blemished skin.
  2. Frowning, poor diet, and lack of sunscreen, (just to name a few), age and damage the skin.
  3. Lack of water dehydrates the skin by making it look dull and dry; not to mention, damaging our organs and well-being. Drink your 8 glasses daily to moisturize from inside out!

Halloween 2013

This is a beautiful, artistic look has become one of the most sought after design in the tattoo industry as well as for Halloween, the name? Sugarskulls.

Where do Sugarskulls come from? They are part of the Mexican holiday, the traditional “Dia de los Muertos” or “Day of the Dead”, the detailed skulls are decorated magnificently and are beautiful.

What is the most distinctive detail? The spiderweb on the forehead is their trademark. If you’re on a budget, or you simply don’t want to dress up, Sugarskulls are a perfect Halloween idea.

Follow your imagination, add as much color, detail you wish for. Maybe you want glitter, sparkles, or rhinestones all over? Go for it, but don’t forget the spiderweb!
