BUSTING BROW MYTHS
YOUR RIGHT TO OPTIONS
TREAT YOUR BODY WELL
“DON’T PLUCK FROM above; only pluck from below the eyebrow.” I’m sure you’ve heard this directly from your mum or read it in a magazine at some point in your life. The theory behind this method is that if you want to lift the eyebrow off the eye, you have to take the hairs from underneath. But we’re not living in the 1920s anymore. Scoopedout, tadpole-like brows are a result of years of miscommunication within the beauty industry. In truth, every brow is different. We can’t all achieve the perfect face-framing shape by taking hairs solely from the underside. To get the best out of your brow, you need to look at what kind of eyebrow you actually have before changing it. Is it thick, sparse, long, short, straight or angular? One brow might only need three hairs taken away, where another might need 50. Our Arch Angels are our secret to success. They can combine what your brows are like and what you want them to look like to create the perfect brow just for you!
WOMEN CHOOSE TO preserve their eggs for a variety of reasons; they may be undergoing treatment for cancer or looking to focus on their career, or maybe they have yet to meet someone they want to have children with. Each individual reason is valid, and consideration of the issue recognises a desire to be a parent at some point, or to at least have the opportunity. Preserving eggs involves removing the oocytes (female egg cells) then freezing them, so that they can later be thawed, fertilised and transferred back into the woman’s uterus. Although it is still considered a “developing technique” and there are no associated guarantees, egg freezing is an exciting and rapidly progressive area in which success rates have been demonstrated. For us, it is rewarding to see the joy of a much-wanted pregnancy. Perhaps the most heartbreaking moment is having to tell someone that they have no options left. This is why I see egg freezing as such a valid endeavour; it gives women the options they deserve.
SELF-ACCEPTANCE IS A key factor in healthy, long-term weight loss. Unfortunately, we can think negatively about our bodies and take for granted just how many functions they perform for us. Poor body image and chronic dieting are attitudes and behaviours that are destructive to your self-worth. Instead of focusing on what you have to lose, why not focus on what you could gain from a healthier outlook? It’s common to feel trapped in the dieting cycle. Finding support to help you realign your relationship with food will help you achieve a happier, healthier lifestyle. A positive mindset can work wonders for your self-image. A comprehensive and structured approach to nutrition, exercise and mindset such as the one offered by the Wesley LifeShape program will help you develop a balanced and positive relationship with your body. If you’re looking for a way to break the dieting cycle, Wesley Lifeshape Clinic will tailor a program to your needs.
