New Dermalogica eye treatment now available at Salon Ten!

With so much to achieve in life, you want to look as alert and healthy as possible.

Spray Tan: Go beyond the pale!

Spring has finally sprung and the sun has been spotted peeking out from behind the clouds. Time to cast off the layers and embrace the spring/summer trends; off-the-shoulder top or fuchsia pink frock anyone? After months of covering up, baring your body – even if it’s just your shoulders or ankles – can be a bit of a shock. If your limbs are a looking a little pasty, you’ll feel more confident with a bit of added colour! With limited rays of real sun available and an increased awareness of the dangers of UV light, faking it is the safest,...

Make time for a massage!

‘I’m just too busy; I can’t spare the time for a massage.’ It’s something we hear a lot, both in and outside of the salon. Many people are under the misapprehension that an hour of pampering is an hour that’s somehow ‘wasted’, an extra 60 minutes that could be spent staring at a computer screen or checking emails. Yet it’s often the busiest people who could benefit most from a massage. Taking one hour – or even just half an hour if that’s really all you can manage – out of your schedule, could have far-reaching benefits for your mind...

Your health and beauty is written all over your face!

The British weather spells doom and gloom for your skin. One minute you’re being lashed by gale force winds, the next it’s raining, hailing or sunny. Who knows what nature will be throwing at you next? The only thing we can be certain of is that the UK temperatures play havoc with our complexion. With little more than a SPF moisturiser for protection, your face deals with inclement conditions on the outside, followed by the drying effects of central heating when we’re inside. No wonder that, most mornings, pre-make-up, we’re not looking our most radiant. Now it might sound strange,...

Polish up your act with beautiful gel nails!

With the party season just around corner, we’re all looking for sparking sophistication from top to tips; gorgeous glossy fingernails are the finishing touch that add that extra bit of glamour to brighten up winter. Gel polish has revolutionised the manicured talon, meaning that you no longer have to suffer the frustration of leaving the nail salon only to dent your party perfect nails the minute you dig into your handbag to find your phone! Gel nails mean shiny, glossy colour that promise to look pristine for at least a fortnight. But when you’ve splashed out on the ideal Christmas...

Six steps to being party perfect!

As we gear up for Christmas and New Year parties, your face will thank you for the TLC it receives in the weeks and months beforehand. There’s little to be gained from last minute fixes the day before a festive bash, and trying out a harsh new mask or peel could do more harm than good; who wants a bright red allergic reaction to contrast with the glamorous little black dress? A good basic skincare regime, teamed with healthy diet, is the only way to guarantee the flawless, radiant glow perfect for the Christmas party season. So it’s as important...

Facing up to winter

The sun kissed glow of summer is fading, replaced instead by the rosy cheeks of winter. Facing the elements unprotected, our skin has to deal with both the drying affects of central heating and of the biting frosty winds. Cold weather and low humidity takes moisture from the skin, leaving it dry and vulnerable to cracking and bleeding. Add to that, the fact that we’re less likely to be exercising as much, may be eating less nutrient-rich salads, and are taking on fewer glasses of water, and it’s no wonder that your face shows signs of suffering during the cold...
