Many Czech Easter symbols are related to Spring and the beginning of new life. Two of the best known are:

Easter Eggs and kraslice - The hand-painted or otherwise decorated egg (kraslice) is the most recognizable symbol of Czech Easter. Girls decorate Easter eggs to give to boys on Easter Monday. There are many Easter egg decorating techniques and the more elaborate ones require a certain level of skill. Different materials can be used, such as bee's wax, straw, watercolors, onion peels, picture stickers. The most common designs are probably geometrical patterns, but you can also see flowers, leaves or snowflake patterns in a whole range of colors. There are no limitations to creating pretty, colorful eggs.

around his pomlázka. As the boys progressed through the village, their bags filled up with eggs and their pomlázkas were adorned with more and more colorful ribbons. This tradition is still largely upheld, especially in villages and small towns, although it may have lost its symbolism and romance and is now performed mainly for fun. Some boys and men seem to have forgotten that the whipping is supposed to be only symbolic and girls don't always like that. The reward has also changed - money and shots of plum brandy (slivovice) are often given instead of or in addition to painted eggs and chocolates. So by early afternoon, groups of happy men can be seen staggering along the roads... All that aside, Easter remains one of the most joyful holidays on the Czech calendar.

Willow twigs and pomlázka

Happy Easter! - Veselé Velikonoce!

Young, live willow twigs are thought to bring health and youth to anyone who is whipped with them. An Easter pomlázka is a braided whip made from willow twigs.

(Ps: I am glad I used to live in Prague. No whipping there! )

How To Seriously Look 5 Years Younger In 30 Minutes It sounds like hype doesn’t it? But it isn’t. Our title is a testament to the strength of chemical peels. And it really is all about strengths.

Ultraceuticals Even Skintone Serum Dramatically diminish the look of discolouration and pigmentation and reveal a brighter, smoother, strengthened and clarified complexion and will enhance the benefits of all other products which follow.

Peels range from “superficial” to “deep.” Each is based on the strength of the solution and has a defined purpose. For example, superficial peels are used to improve the appearance of sun damage, fine wrinkles and acne scars. These wonderful peels can be used for all skin types.

$100

MARCH PEEL SPECIAL

It’s also the one we use the most. Results are excellent and long lasting.

Medium peels are used to treat mild to moderate wrinkles, long term sun damage, age spots and blotchy skin, and even precancerous lesions.

Deep peels treat severe wrinkles, long term sun damage and pronounced pigment changes. Peels can be paired with other professional treatments like microdermabrasion for more overall dramatic effect.

So if you seriously want to lose 5 years of fine lines, sagging skin and sun damage, take advantage of our March special offer.

You’re in good hands. That’s what we do best!
