As you jet off on your summer holidays, it’s worth remembering of the risks of so-called ‘Black Henna’ Temporary Tattoos which can cause you to develop allergies to hair colorants.  While on holiday, many people opt to have a fun temporary ‘black henna’ tattoo applied on the beach or by the pool. Henna extract is orange-red in colour; however, some tattoo artists offer a much darker ‘black henna’.  There is no such thing as ‘black henna’ and so-called ‘black henna’ temporary tattoos can cause painful short and long-term damage to skin and may cause people to develop an allergy to hair colorants which will prevent them from colouring their hair in future.  So what is in ‘black henna’? The truth is that so-called ‘black henna’ temporary tattoos are not likely to be henna at all, but may contain a substance called PPD (paraphenylenediamine). This use of PPD in tattoos and at such high concentrations is illegal in the EU, and it can be very harmful if applied direct to your skin in these types of temporary tattoos.  PPD – what does it do? PPD is used safely and legally as an ingredient in hair colorants, but when applied directly to the […] Read More

The Good Skin Guru Facial Massage Guide by JFJ’s Ricardina Guimaraes This is your DIY guide for face massage at home. The simplest thing is to spend five minutes in front of the mirror and to be more precise and intentional when you are applying your usual skincare products on. Work in sections – chin, cheeks, and eyes – circling with your fingertips and applying light pressure. Then move on to the jawline. Finish by sweeping upwards along the jawline with the heels of your hands. Step by step massage below. Step 1 – Create an all over glow Centre the first two fingers of each hand on your chin. Sweep out and up toward your temples. Next, centre fingers above lips and sweep them out and up. Repeat, working up your face toward your hairline. When you get to the forehead, sweep fingers downward. Step 2 – Plump your cheeks Put the pads of your thumbs on your cheeks close to your nose, right under your cheekbones. Don’t be afraid to dig in: You want to apply enough pressure to stimulate the muscles under the skin. Slowly draw your thumbs out toward your temples. Repeat once. Step 3 – […] Read More

 How to Avoid a Dull-Looking Complexion If your complexion is dull-looking, chances are dead skin cells are to blame. Dull skin is caused by a build-up of dead skin cells that don’t slough off properly, kind of like old paint or nail polish that loses its lustre. Add winter weather, sun damage and hormonal changes and you’ve got a recipe for skin-care disaster. Fortunately there are a few easy steps you can take to keep your skin looking its healthy, glowing best. Exfoliate, exfoliate, and exfoliate. If your skin isn’t shedding those dead cells on its own, you’re going to have to do it yourself. If you have normal/oily skin, I suggest using a salicylic acid product, once a week. If you prefer mechanical exfoliation over chemical, try our Microdermabrasion Treatment to physically remove build-up. What does microdermabrasion involve? Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure in which the stratum corneum (dead outermost surface of the skin) is partially or completely removed by light abrasion. The removal of the dead skin cells reveals the softer more youthful looking skin cells underneath. The superficial abrasion of the skin also triggers the body’s own natural repair mechanism which triggers the production of new collagen […] Read More
Men’s Relaxing-Waxing Let’s face it, hair removal can be tiresome, but waxing is a quick, easy and effective way to temporarily remove unwanted hair.  According to Men’s Health Magazine, Men’s waxing is becoming more popular: 69% of people feel more confident when they remove body hair – so it’s no surprise that waxing has become something of a male rite of passage.  No matter what the reason, hygiene or aesthetic, male waxing is now first on the list when it comes to men’s beauty treatments.  Some of the benefits of waxing for men include: To be more hygienic To reduce body odour Sports-related benefits for swimmers, athletes and cyclists To improve appearance and enhance muscle definition To increase self-confidence Unlike other hair removal solutions, waxing removes the hair by the root, taking longer for the hair to grow back. Regrowth is softer and sparser, there will be no stubble or itchiness, so you have smoother skin for longer! Pre-wax advice: A few days before waxing, exfoliating either with mitts or a body scrub such as Aveda’s Beautifying, Smoothing or Rosemary Mint Polish will help remove any dead skin cells and lift the hairs from the skin making it easier to wax […] Read More
At JFJ we are proud to use depilatory wax manufactured by Perron Rigot.   With over thirty years of innovation and more than twenty patents behind them, Perron Rigot is considered the industry leader and is the product choice of some of the best salons in the world. JFJ uses Perron Rigot’s hypoallergenic range of waxes enabling effective and comfortable hair removal for even the most sensitive skins. For the non-initiated, hot wax involves applying a layer of wax directly to the skin and then allowing it to set before peeling it away together with the hair. Strip wax uses the same method of applying wax but a strip of paper is used to pull away the hair. We don’t understand why they call it ‘hot wax’ as it’s actually not as hot as the strip wax and as it sets it goes cold really quickly! When the hot wax is applied to the skin with a spatula, it coats the hair with a thick layer. As the wax cools it becomes firmer contracting around the hairs and gripping them tightly. The wax remains on the skin until it becomes opaque, setting to form a slight tacky consistency. It is […] Read More
Ricardina writes… Massage is well known for its relaxation benefits but there is a type of massage that can treat the whole body, eliminating the root cause of your problems. This is called holistic massage, and it comes with a whole range of health benefits. What is Holistic Massage? The word “holistic” comes from the Greek word “holos” which means whole. The aim of holistic massage is to account for the whole person and not just the physical symptoms or problems that they may be experiencing. In this way, holistic massage also focuses on psychology, nutrition, and environment. Holistic massage treats each person according to their individual needs so that the body can restore its natural balance. Holistic massage uses touch, movement and energy in the therapy. It may also use relaxation techniques, calming music, Aveda essential oils, and other methods along with the massage itself. Benefits of Holistic Massage Holistic massage has many benefits including: increasing energy levels increasing mental clarity improving concentration reducing stress and anxiety relieving muscle tension and stiffness improving posture improving mobility and flexibility better circulation deeper and more efficient breathing improving the elasticity of the skin strengthening the immune system balancing the digestive system […] Read More

Bob Tales

June 12, 2015 jfjadmin Fashion 0 comments
Ah, the Bob; that classic style of the Sixties; Vidal Sassoon’s ‘signature look’ and his invention. Or is it? In fact, the Bob was born in the ‘Roaring Twenties’, when it was sported by a new breed of modern women – feisty, assertive ‘flappers’, who preferred short, practical cuts to the flowing styles of previous eras. A famous champion – and wearer – of this ‘new chic’ was outspoken fashion designer Coco Chanel. The cut caused outrage at first – some husbands even protested enough to divorce their wives! – but it didn’t take long for the shock to fade and the scissors to come out. Read More
