Sneak Peak into some exclusive treatments available at vlcc

Often, we hide behind our scarves, huge sunglasses and what not. The pigmentation on our face, the numerous freckles, acne issues and even hair loss can sometimes lead to low confidence. I personally feel the everyone is beautiful with whatever flaws they have. But if you want to work on them then I guess I have a place for you.

Most of you who follow me on Instagram already know that I attended the #vlccstylestatements event organized by VLCC recently. I asked you guys to drop me your skin and hair related queries on Snapchat and Instagram. I was overwhelmed to see the response that I got. So today I will be sharing a few treatments that are available at VLCC and that will help you manage your skin and hair-related problem.

Thermage

Aging affects us in the way we act, the way we feel, and definitely the way we look. But with advancements in skin care, you can have a say in the way aging affects your skin and maybe even get back to the way you looked not so long ago. Thermage is a proven, unique radio frequency treatment that can help improve the appearance of sagging or loose skin, giving you a smoother, sleeker and younger look and feel. Thermage works in just one treatment with little down time and delivers a natural looking result. It’s you, just younger looking and more confident.

Acne Treatment

Vampire Facelift

The US FDA approved Vampire Facelift treatment is available at VLCC and they are the best ones for this job. It stimulates collagen formation while rejuvenating your skin. This simple procedure uses your own platelets to smoothen out folds and wrinkles. This also helps with reduction of acne scars, open pores and stretch marks. Having already taken the West by storm, this treatment is a natural, safe, quick and effective solution for visible improvement in texture and luminescence of the skin. Treatment will occur in 3 sessions. Duration for this procedure is under 2 hours and frequency is once in a month.

Hair Transplantation

Hair transplantation is a cosmetic procedure, which involves removal of permanent hair shafts along with roots from a hair bearing area called as “donor area” and transplantation into the bald area called as “recipient area”. In case of Hair Transplantation over scalp, hair are usually taken from the back and sides of the scalp. For patients with advanced baldness of scalp, hair can also be taken from beard, chest, axilla, and / or other body parts.

Ayurveda Spa

I am listing down below a few of the categories of Ayurvedic spa that are available at the VLCC Centre.

ABHYANGAM

A unique program where the prescribed oil is liberally applied using soft and gentle strokes, followed by a steam bath. Improves appetite, induces good sleep, reduces stress levels and builds the body’s immunity.

SHIRODHARA

A great rejuvenating and curative therapy which eliminates disease and improves vitality. A warm steam of medicated oil is poured continuously over Ajna chakra, or the third eye, to induce relaxation. It relieves stress, anxiety, anger, chronic headaches, hyper tension, insomnia and hair problems.

UDVARTANAM

The whole body is massaged with medicated powder made from various herbs. This massage helps tone up skin, diminish the appearance of cellulite, improve digestion, and alleviate inactivity and sluggishness. It works primarily on the lymphatic system and helps to drain the lymph.

KATI BASTI

This traditional therapy involves specially prepared Prakriti specific oils, lavishly poured onto the lower back; the flow is checked by a herbal paste boundary. This treatment has a relaxing effect on the lower back and helps relieve back pain and spinal disorders.

Wellness and Beauty Session at VLCC

I have always ignored my skin care routine since I was a teenager. I was very lazy to even apply a sunscreen before heading out. My skin has always been normal to oily so I did not even bother to use moisturiser before. It’s been quite some time now that I have started to take care of my skin on the regular. It happened when I started getting acne on my face due to open pores, dust, pollution and excess oil on my face.

 

I started doing CTM since a year back and not many people knew about it. For instance, I skipped the moisturising step in summers and jumped directly to the sunscreen most of the times. But after attending the VLCC event, I am sure I was skipping out on something really important.

 

Let me introduce CTM to those readers who have no idea about what it is and how it works. CTM is basically cleansing, moisturising and toning. This is the only thing which will help your skin to improve, only if you follow it religiously, no skipping girls. No matter what your skin type is – dry, oily or normal you ought to bring this change in your routine from today itself. The benefit of following CTM was unknown before, but now it should be the part of one’s lifestyle.

Weight Loss

Cleanse:

Cleansing is the first, foremost step which is basic and very common one that almost everyone follows. I prefer using foam free cleanser since my skin is oily. Cleansing also includes wiping your makeup off with a Makeup remover or olive/coconut oil and then washing your face off with a cleanser. Make sure that your cleanser is mild if you have breakout prone skin. Avoid strong products with harsh chemicals on your face. Also, I recommend using a mild scrub to shed the dead cells twice in a week for your face & body. This will leave your skin smooth and fresh.

 

Tone:
Toning is the very essential for each and every one. This is my favorite step. Most of the women out there aren’t aware of the benefits of toning. Let me tell you that toning is something which helps you to clean your pores and reduces the chances of breakouts, helps you get rid of dead cells what else do you want in life girls? No to acne problems and dull skin issues. I have literally seen a difference in my skin to what it was like a year back. It’s much better now if you ask me as to what it was like before. We cannot stop going out in the sun and pollution, but we can take precautions and reduce the chances of breaking out. Toning also helps to reduce the blackheads and whiteheads formation on your skin. Use a cotton ball and clear your skin out with a toner, you will see the pore residues/ impurities right on the cotton ball when you’re done, that means your skin is still not clean after cleansing. It needs a little extra care and attention. So, this step is worth your time. Get a radiant, flawless skin right after this step.

 

Moisturise:
After you’re done with cleansing and toning the next step is moisturising which I use to skip and thought it wasn’t a big deal since I had oily skin but I was wrong. I came to know the benefits of moisturising my face after attending the VLCC event, that cleansing and toning leave your pores open and skin might start looking patchy if you don’t use a moisturiser after that. Even if your skin is oily, moisturising is very essential to balance the natural oils. I am using non-greasy moisturiser from vlcc which helps in controlling acne & excess sebum secretion, leaving my skin radiant & matte. I apply it twice a day and the results are visible. My skin has gone very supple like a baby.

Acne Treatment

After this another important step is to protect your skin by applying sunscreen 365 days a year, no matter wherever you are. This should be done every day. This was the point which was stressed upon the most during the VLCC event. sunscreen is like a shield which protects you from the harmful UV rays, pollution and dust in the air. It helps to prevent skin discoloration and blotchiness.
So follow CTM twice a day and see the results yourself. You can thank me later.

 

Another issue which is very common these days is of dark circles.
The dark discoloration under our eyes can be because of many obvious reasons like it can be heredity, stress, bad lifestyle or unhealthy diet. Though it is not a serious problem but if you don’t take care of it, it might get worse and make you look tired, dull and unhealthy pretty much all the time.

 

The best remedy which I follow is to use an under-eye gel which should be stored in the refrigerator for the best results. Gently massage it under and above your eyes before going to bed. It will give you a soothing cold relaxed effect. Introduce this step to your daily routine you will definitely see good results. Avoid using your phones or laptops after this process as it may not give you the desired results.

 

Another easy remedy that I indulge in after removing my makeup is use of rose water. Take chilled rose water, soak the cotton balls in it and put them on your eyelids for about 10-12 minutes and you are good to go. It is so relaxing especially in summers its the best part of the day. Your eyes will feel refreshed and rejuvenate in no time.

VLCC – More than Just a Slimming Center

Hope you had a great start to your week! I have been busy juggling work and the blog to create more content here for you guys. I have taken up some exciting projects so stay tuned. Also, it’s birthday week and all I can do is think about Mr. Jeromy who isn’t here with me in India.

On another note, I recently went for a meet-up at VLCC’s wellness and beauty center in HSR Layout, Bangalore. When VLCC called the event #VLCCStyleStatements, I was curious to know why the hashtag and the whole idea behind it. Once we were done with the discussion, I realized why. It is a beauty and wellness center that also offers various beauty services apart from slimming services.  The services range from salon services, laser & dermatology services as well.

Weight Loss

Before I start talking about the various services they offer, below is a small introduction on VLCC from their website:

“VLCC is widely recognized for its weight loss solutions and therapeutic approach to beauty treatments. They have among the largest scale and breadth of operations within the beauty and wellness services industry in India, serving consumers across 236 locations in 122 cities and across 11 countries in South Asia, South East Asia, the GCC Region and East Africa. We operate 197 Wellness Centres in India and 49 in 10 other countries and run VLCC Institutes of Beauty & Nutrition that have grown to become India’s largest chain of vocational education academies in the beauty and nutrition training segment with 69 campuses, training nearly 10,000 students annually and offering courses in multiple disciplines.”

 Prior to this, I am sure all of us had the notion that VLCC = a slimming center. I remember as a teenager, I used to see huge boards around the city with slimming consultations that VLCC used to advertise about. And I used to always think that’s the only thing VLCC offers.

But I was pleasantly surprised to find out the various services they offer apart from slimming. It was so wonderful meeting Sushmita, Category Manager – Beauty for VLCC, who blew me away with the knowledge she has about almost anything you ask regarding VLCC and the services they offer. A marketer who knows everything about the company she represents was indeed wonderful!

The session we had with Sushmita was very informative in terms of the different services VLCC has to offer. After this session, my notion of VLCC called only as a slimming center definitely changed. They have so many beauty and wellness services that I had no idea were introduced in India. Some of them are:

Vampire Facelift: If you know what the Kardashians are up to thanks to social media, you should also know they indulge in Vampire Facelifts very often. I have seen a lot of bloggers outside India who are also opening up to this idea now.  Vampire Facelift is basically for dull and sallow skin.  Maintaining glowing skin is hard work but the much-acclaimed Vampire Facelift uses A-PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) which is a form of blood plasma taken from your own self that has been enriched with platelets and growth factors and applied to your face with derma roller. This encourages cellular growth, stimulates healing and imparts a youthful appearance to skin.

 

A few other services that we spoke about were Derma Heal Eye Treatment. This is an eye filler treatment, exclusively formulated with innovative bio actives. It dramatically reduces the visible signs of ageing around eye area by instant wrinkle filling effect. The treatment has 24 hour-lasting hydration that would eventually improve skin texture and boosts radiance.

Not just another slimming Centre VLCC Style Statements

Am I the only one who thought of VLCC as a place that mysteriously helps people slim down tons of weight in the least amount of time?
With their marketing campaigns, and the movie Badhai ho Badhai, Anil Kapoors fat to fit stunt was their shot to fame in my head. Clear about being the best slimming Centre ever!
Although I have been noticing their increasing presence in the beauty products segment, available in lead stores. I didn’t take them quite seriously. Until the recent #VLCCStyleStatement event.

Weight Loss
From the latest Vampire facial, Kardashian favourite to the changing trends in skin & hair industry. They seemed to not just know but actually provide all the services across India. Be it Medivita which is a hair care expert therapy, to eyelash extensions, VLCC has got the global beauty updates right here for us.

 

At this recent meet up with Pune’s biggest bloggers was a fun session on beauty, skin, hair & nail care. We discussed all our skin queries, and the answers were much beyond “drink lots of water” luckily! From the ideal beauty regime to the nutrition our bodies need to have good skin and hair team VLCC covered it all.

 

What’s a fun meet up without a goodie bag with products I couldn’t stop gushing about. I used their Diamond Facial Kit from the goodie bag, had also received their detox green tea & a shape up oil which I am eager to use.

 

The diamond facial kit gave me supple glowing skin in six easy steps, judging by their product range and this event, Jugni & Co. highly recommend the beauty & care services at VLCC India.

VLCC Wellness: 5 Things I Learned from My Recent Visit to VLCC

All About VLCC Wellness

With a set of pristine white spa and massage rooms filled with the floral scent and a promise of indulgence, mani-pedi and makeup stations, VLCC is sure worth a trip. And that’s not all, with its skin and hair care experts, bridal packages and a range of wellness products, VLCC offers, as they like to call it, a 360-degree full-rounded wellness.

 

#VLCCStyleStatements

The blogger’s meet and pampering session I went there for on Thursday started with a tour around their spa, followed by high tea and a question and answer session with their beauty experts while some of us got foot massages.

 

“Do hair spas really work?” asked one of us bloggers, followed with similar questions about hair fall and damage. “Why do you get hair spas?” Sushmita, VLCC’s Category Manager for Beauty, asked that blogger and explained her about the Hair Spa.

Hair & Beauty – Lessons Learned

Here are the 5 things I learned from this session:

  1. It’s important to know your end goal before you go for a hair spa, so you can access the result. What is it you’re after – shine, damage control or dryness control? Tell the hair experts and ask for a hair spa accordingly.

 

  1. For complicated concerns like premature greying, damage, and skin discoloration, it’s important to know the reason they’re happening in the first place, so treatment can be suggested accordingly. Have an hour-long session with the experts who can analyses your personal situation vis-à-vis lifestyle, diet, hereditary factors and health, instead of going for a one-remedy-suits-all approach.

 

  1. Dandruff and dry skin have a similar solution – keeping it clean is as important as keeping it moisturized.

 

  1. Hair falling out? Ask yourself what’s changed about your lifestyle before you even start worrying – change of shampoo, stress, diet, pregnancy, so many factors can contribute to this, so it’s important to evaluate this before you approach a hair care expert.

 

  1. Just seek out medical help for acne instead of blaming your skin.

 

I was parted with a goodie bag whose contents I am yet to try – a diamond facial kit, a massage oil (whose recommendation my friend gave me) and an herbal tea. So, I’ll be writing about those when I try, especially interested in the facial kit, cuz I’m totes a home facial person!
