There are many reasons for having regular Sothys facials, but two that stand out are for anti-ageing and anti-acne.

Regular facials can have a positive affect on your physical and mental well-being. Our face is the one area of the body that is always exposed to the outside elements including wind, sun and cold. To keep looking and feeling our best, you need to look after your face. A deep cleansing facial is for all skin types and a great way to get started on your path to regular facials. They have the obvious outward benefits of youth, vitality, beautiful glowing skin and psychological affects of improved self-esteem.

Anti-ageing facials are important to flush out excess water and toxins as the application of the correct products and the massage techniques can increase lymphatic drainage. We often get puffy around the eyes and jawline. A facial will stimulate circulation increasing blood flow to give better colour to the skin and bring nutrients and oxygen to the skin's surface for a better glow. It can stimulate collagen production especially if used in combination with microdermabrasion and LED light therapy.

Regular facials can help improve your home care, as during a facial your skin will be deeply exfoliated deep into the layers allowing the home care products penetrate deeper. Facials help relax muscles and tone the face. It's important to have facials every six weeks and moisturise your skin twice daily at home. You must remember to apply SPF every day as it's the best protection against anti-ageing. Also, wear sunglasses to protect the eyes.

For oily skin, having regular facials or glycolic skin peeling is essential to deeply clean the skin and congested pores. Having facials can help speed up the healing process and minimise further congestion which may lead to pimples. Hygienic extractions are performed with the use of an ozone steamer. Ozone is an anti-bacterial steam that prevents further breakout down the line. Trying to pop your own pimples can be aggressive and can lead to more scarring. So, if it's been a while since you've had a facial, it's time to book one.

Needless to say we all know what cellulite looks like, but there are many ways to reduce its appearance and help us look and feel better about it.

Yes, people often assume it’s down to a weight issue but it is associated with diet and exercise. It can affect all ages, male and female. There are many ways to help reduce and eliminate it.

Nothing can substitute for eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise. Just as with other signs of ageing, cellulite is best managed first and foremost by focusing on maintaining a healthy weight long term. But certain topical treatments may help it become less noticeable and improve skin’s overall appearance, if used regularly. Dry body brushing is one technique to try by brushing upwards every day towards the heart for increased blood circulation.

Using anti-cellulite products can help if you are doing regular exercise and watching your diet, but if you feel you need a boost to get you headed in the right direction, there is a few different salon treatments that can be of benefit.

The Universal Contour Body Wrap is a great treatment which results in inch loss due to the detoxing effect of the sea clay or also the Electro Cellulite Massage rollers (ECM) by CACI Machine, which is a 12-session course over four weeks, this is recommended for desired results.

Pilates is always an amazing lifestyle choice. Having the toning tables for the past 30 years in Killarney, we are lucky to hear the amazing results from our clients past and present. Some have even been with us since we started! The male and female reviews have reported reduced cellulite with weekly appointments, improved posture, increased energy and mostly reduced cellulite.

To book an appointment or to find out more information, call 064 6632966.

Two Kerry-based car dealers are part of a national campaign to provide essential aid for Ukraine.

Donagh Hickey Motors in Rathmore and Adam’s of Tralee are the two local garages that have signed up for the project.

Under the scheme, the garages will be used as collection hubs for essential equipment that will be transported to the war torn country.

“We have a very large and loyal customer base and we are appealing through them to make donations,” Adam’s of Tralee General Manager, Marcus O’Shea, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Any dealer could have signed up for this but we are one of only two in Kerry to do so.”

The garages, following advice from humanitarian agencies in Ukraine, have created a very specific list of what is urgently needed out there.

These include generators, solar battery chargers, batteries, power banks, flashlights, drones and tablets.

Medical equipment like First Aid kits (NATO standard) and other medical items are also sought.

People can assist by either dropping goods to the two garages or by making a donation via www.safeharbourforukraine.org.
