Benefits of Emu Oil OmegaMagic Apart From Relieving Joint Pain

OmegaMagic | Emu Oil | Elise Marcus SalonRecently, one of my customers had ailments related to muscles and joint pain which included Arthritis and Rheumatism. My customer had been looking for a remedy for some time, and one of my friends introduced him to Emu oil OmegaMagic in my Beauty Salon in St Joseph MN. It is a unique product that contains not only Omega-3, but Omega-6 which are the essential fatty acids in one source. It also contains Omega-7 and Omega-9, which are important fatty acids. Apart from being used in relieving joint pains it is also used as a treatment for different skin problems such as relieving inflammation, softening of scar tissues and the strengthening of hair and scalp.

I had advised him to buy OmegaMagic from my salon and combine it with Facial Spa regimen so as to enjoy other benefits associated with the product apart from relieving the joint pain he had. Most of my customers were curious to know other benefits of this product when combined with Facial Spa Regimen and here are some other benefits I explained to them apart from relieving the joint pain:

The first benefit I explained to him as per my customers’ testimonials is that it will be very useful for acne care since it can help reduce the number of breakouts and the scarring and heal the skin. The oils and the fatty acids such as Omega-7 have antibacterial properties and thus kill the bacteria responsible for breakouts. This was a perfect product for my customers because they will use one product to eliminate a lot of problems.

Besides, Emu oil is a very powerful moisturizer all by itself and can make one’s skin glow Emu Oil Skincare | Beauty Salon In St. Joseph MNdue to the penetrating properties. This was a good idea because my customer’s skin was always dry, and he had been looking for a product to make it moist. One should take about two drops on his/her palm and apply on the surface of the skin, and the product is very effective since from then, my customer’s skin was ever moist.

Finally, it can help reduce stretch marks. My client was recovering from excess weight, and he had stretch marks on his skin. He told me that when he applied the product on his skin, it helped diminish the stretch marks. He tried the Emu oil products in my salon and within some few days; the stretch marks were less visible. The product has natural omega oil and fatty acids which are responsible for eliminating the stretch marks appearance.

Exposed Hair Pins, A Controversial Trend

There is a new trend in high fashion that is making waves today in wedding fashion. Exposed hair pins are, depending on who you ask, a quirky fun way to make a statement or a symbol of modern fashion’s faux pas. It’s a love-hate trend.Those who love this trend see it as fresh and almost punky. Those who hate it compare it to wearing underwear outside of clothes. No matter what you believe, this is a trend with impact coming to a hair salon in St Joseph MN today.

Bobby pins are generally thought of as something that you blend into your hair. They are tucked under tresses, into hair pieces and used to underpin more elaborate hair jewelry. But until recently they were never the star of the show. The expose hair pins trend changes all of that.

Emphasize your hair pins at home by using dark pins if you have light locks or light pins if you have darker tresses. For a business casual look, use a few pins at the nape of your neck around an updo. Short hair and textured hair are not left out of this trend! Use decorative pins to twist and tuck strands of hair. Place a few at your temples for a little bling.

Our beauty consultant, Cami Theisen, at Elise Marcus Salon in St Joseph MN can set you up with more stylish and high fashion exposed hair pin styles for your fashionable events.

Men Can Add Texture and Drama to Hairstyles with Highlighting

One of the most common misconceptions is that men do not have many options when it comes to hair styles. Today’s trends and fashion changes have made mens professional hair services popular. Whether you prefer to wear your hair short or long, there are a variety of trendy hairstyles for men to choose from. One of the most popular hairstyles is having custom highlight haircolor for men in St Joseph MN.

Many men are choosing to have highlights, because it adds texture and uniqueness to Mens Highlight Hair Services | Elise Marcus Salonyour hairstyle. If you are considering changing the overall color of your hair, but are concerned about doing it all at once, highlights are a great way to gradually change the overall color. A mens professional highlight hair colorist at Elise Marcus Salon can provide you with a variety of highlighting options. For example, if you prefer to have subtle highlights, you could get a few lighter brown highlights added to your dark brown hair. If you want a more dramatic look, you could opt to have blond highlights added.
