Enlist the help of experts in your countdown to the big day
& Look like an angel..


Would you try to fix the broken washing machine or would you call a plumber?Would you cut your own hair or nip around to the local hairdressers? Would you try to extract an aching molar or would you visit the dentist? A general rule of thumb is ‘leave it to the experts. Interestingly, women have long considered beauty therapists to be an exception to that rule. More often than not, we will have a stab at waxing our own legs, plucking our own eyebrows and lashing on the fake tan. This usually works and saves us a princely amount of money at the same time, but one thing is for sure – we don’t do it like the experts.


Generally speaking, time, effort and lack of knowledge are lacking when it comes to beautification. If you want to look the most radiant bride anyone has ever seen, you must turn for help.


Heavenly Spa, one of Dublin’s top beauty salons suggests that you start your intense beauty regime about 3 months before the wedding. “You will achieve better results over time and this way it need not necessarily be an expensive affair. You can highlight the areas which demand the most attention and work on those. Most brides concentrate on skin, both on the face and body”, says Gillian Fox, beauty therapist and owner of Heavenly Spa.


The Non-Surgical Facelift is a popular choice and it means you don’t have to put your face to the knife for the sake of a younger appearance! It works by applying a micro current to the skin and then a collagen face mask. They are taken twice a week for six weeks. The results are long lasting as they work on toning the facial muscles, softening lines and improving the smoothness and complexion of the skin.


Another tempting and rewarding treatment is the Exotic Coconut Rub and Milk Ritual Wrap, reasonably priced at €75, a facial for your whole body, which guarantees to soothe, condition and soften your skin.


Heavenly Spa uses the Elemis product range which are made from plant extracts. “These products are well-known within the industry for their medicinal virtues. They are fully organic and have healing qualities. To this end, they are used widely in aromatherapy,” adds Gillian, also a trained aromatherapist.


Nails, waxing, tanning and massage; makeovers, reflexology, acupuncture, diathermy and electrolysis are other services offered by Heavenly Spa. The salon is open seven days a week, so busy brides-to-be have no excuse to take time out to indulge.


It is worth noting that Heavenly Spa offers an on-site service especially for the bride on her wedding day. Treatments are costed as per normal and extra costs only amount to expenses of the salon director and consultants such as mileage, accommodation etc
