I’m sure we have all been told to drink more water and deep down we know we should, but how much does drinking water actually impact on our body and more importantly our skin and hair?
Your skin is the largest organ in your body and all organs require water to function, therefore our skin needs more than most.
A skincare routine is extremely personal and the perfect routine for one person may not work for another but this is more to do with the individual products that each person uses rather than the type of products. One brand may be someone’s saviour but may not agree with another – it is all about finding the products and brands that work with your skin. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a routine that works with everyone, this includes the type of products you should be using. We have come up with the most important products you should be using in your daily routine.
Whether you love to be glowing and tanned all year round or you just need a little pick me up to help fight those winter blues, what better way than having a great tanning routine that could fool even the most experienced fake tanner into thinking your tan is real. Here are some top tips to perfect your routine and to help you get the best results from your tan.
We all know that feeling, half way through January, the weather is grey and there are no festivities anymore. We may have all indulged a tiny bit too much over Christmas, but it’s a new year so we won’t dwell on the past…

A smile is the finishing touch to any outfit and can brighten any day. Smiling is so important for your mood and your health. Showing those pearly whites regularly can help to relieve the stress that life can bring and generally boost your mood.

The Christmas parties are in full swing and many of us will have invested in a fake tan to get that golden glow for our works party night out. At Body Language Taunton our flawless spray tan which develops naturally in a few hours normally lasts between 7-10 days. A lot of you will often apply your own fake tan over this period as the beauty salons fill up pretty quickly in the run up to Christmas. If you have had any tanning disasters you might want to follow these top tips to remove your fake tan so that you aren’t left with any patches.
Use an oil to gently massage into your body to make sure that your skin remains hydrated.Start exfoliating but make sure you do it gently to avoid damaging your skin. This will start breaking down the tan. A hot steam room or hot bathroom can also help to loosen any remaining tan. If any of the tan is being stubborn and won’t come off lemon juice and baking soda could help. We always advise keep your skin moisturised after wearing fake tan.
If you have been unfortunate enough to get any fake tan on your clothing, you want to try and get it off as soon as possible before the tan sets in. You can dab the stain first with soapy water and a detergent solution before putting it in the wash. As long as the fabric is machine washable you shouldn’t have a problem in doing so, just check the labels beforehand. You might have to repeat this process a couple of times until the stain has been removed, just be sure to check each time, you want to avoid putting the clothes in the tumble dryer or drying it in the sun until the stain has been removed completely otherwise the heat could cause the stain to set into the fabric.
It’s that festive time of year when the Christmas Parties begin and we all want to look our best. At Body Language Taunton we have chosen some of our favourite, simple beauty treatments that can help you feel a million dollars.

Most people are familiar with going to the beauty salon for a facial that will tone, soothe and soften the skin, however, many are still unfamiliar with Microdermabrasion. You can create a more youthful appearance and renew your skin with our microdermabrasion facial. Whilst you sit back and relax our expert beauticians get to work on rejuvenating your skin.
Microdermabrasion is a process that involves deep exfoliation, a fine stream of abrasive crystals are massaged over the skin causing the dead skin to be exfoliated away. A vacuum then removes these dead skin cells leaving a softer and fresher skin behind. This then encourages the skin to produce more collagen which helps create a brighter looking skin.

Why would we recommend massage for relaxation?
Reduce Anxiety – Often when we are anxious our bodies become tense and we tend to clench our muscles. By receiving a regular massage tension can be released. There is also much research to suggest that massage lowers the levels of cortisol which has links to stress an anxiety.

At Body Language Taunton we care about you and your skin, we recognise the impact that healthy looking skin can have on a person’s self- esteem and have therefore introduced the popular and successful NLite – V collagen laser. Scarring, Wrinkles and Acne can become a thing of the past with this new non – invasive laser treatment designed to stimulate the production of natural collagen and reduce bacteria leaving the skin, younger, healthier and most importantly smoother!
How does NLite – V Collagen work?
NLite involves targeting the skin and stimulating a natural healing using a laser light. This is achieved as the laser light kills and reduces bacteria that often causes the acne to appear, therefore not only killing the current bacteria but also discouraging the growth of additional bacteria in the future by reducing the risk of the bacteria spreading. This simultaneously encourages the production of collagen beneath the skin, producing a smoother appearance.
What areas can NLite – V target?
The NLite – V collagen laser is a popular treatment commonly used on areas including the eyes, mouth, forehead, cheeks and neck.
How quickly will I see a difference?
Most clients have reported that within just two or three sessions they have seen remarkable improvements to their skin with some even reporting that their acne has totally cleared after 3-6 months. This is because over the course of the treatment bacteria has been killed collagen levels start to naturally increase creating a smoother appearance. Continue reading
Microblading is a great way to give you pigmentation and definition in areas where it may be naturally lacking, such as your eyebrows and lips. The treatment is endorsed by many as it’s a real confidence booster – and it will save you time getting ready in the morning! This treatment is particularly good for those who have suffered hair loss as a result of medical treatment.
These treatments are semi-permanent and can last up to 2 years – the great thing is that the pigment doesn’t change colour over time, it only fades so it will look natural at all stages of the process. The sessions only take around 1 ½ hours and are virtually painless, making this treatment a really popular one.
