Enhancing Your Wellbeing at Home

Enhancing your Wellbeing at Home
FREE MEDITATION BELOW!

With all of us currently self-isolating at the moment, at Roman Beauty we have been using our creativity to come up with new and exciting ways we can bring relaxation, peace, and calm into your new home!

And so, our private (and free!) Roman Retreat Wellbeing Hub was born!




**Scroll to the bottom for your free 5-minute meditation to feel calm and relaxed**

Over the last week, we have been posting free daily mindfulness & meditation practises such as 'gratitude meditation,' 'flower meditation,' breath awareness,' and 'chime bell meditation' to help people practise mindfulness at home. We have also been posting guided beauty and pampering tutorials with step-by-step instructions and a follow along video of how you can:
**do your own scalp massage to increase blood flow to the hair to help reduce hair thinning and increase blood flow for healthy hair;
**do a facial massage which works over the pressure points in the face to release stress and tension;
**create a spa environment at home with candles, incense, relaxing music, and do-it-yourself pamper treatments.

Join our private wellbeing group here to access our FREE classes:
 

We have had such a great response on the group and there are currently 70 lovely ladies in our wellbeing hub community. See what some of them say after doing our short meditations:

"Thanks for doing these Laura, I'm grateful you're helping us all stay calm and happy during lockdown :) xx"

"That was really helpful... thank you! Woke up feeling pretty glum today and you've made me feel loads better. Really appreciate it. Will be watching it again (uninterrupted!) later this evening xxx"

"Thanks Laura really relaxing :-)"

"That was my first time meditating. I feel very relaxed and calm and ready to start my day. Thank you, I will be back."

Mindfulness at Work

Mindfulness to Stay Peaceful & Calm at Work
The days are starting to get lighter and a little warmer. But work can still feel like a grind, especially if we're inside all day.
For those of us who work at a computer, we can get back, neck, and head pain from bad posture. If you work in an office as well, it's unlikely that you'll be getting a full daily dose of Vitamin D from sunlight.
A little bit of meditation can help our bodies and our minds - and it's so easy to do, many of us can even do it at work! Even if you can't find the time to carry out a full meditative exercise, try smaller changes: after a fraught meeting or phone call, take a moment before you launch back into work to bring your focus to the breath, taking a few deeper breaths in to the body, and allowing yourself to fully relax on each out breath.  Thinking about all the things in your life that are good and that you are grateful for also helps take the focus back on to positive feeling thoughts.


Workplace meditation
There are plenty of ways to meditate without even moving from your desk.
To start off with, just close your eyes and concentrate on your breathing for 60 seconds. Make sure you've turned off the phone and silenced all notifications on your computer. Concentrate on your breath coming in through your nose, filling up your lungs. Hold it for a moment then gently exhale.
If it doesn't feel comfortable for you to close your eyes in the workplace, it is possible to meditate with your eyes open. Just pick a spot that is clear of distractions (so, perhaps, a plant or a spot on a wall) and focus on that instead.


Go for a walk
Those of us who work office hours inside a building are going to miss out on a decent daily dose of sunlight and Vitamin D. As such, when the weather is fine, take the opportunity to go for a walk. If you feel that the outdoors makes you particularly restful, you could even combine your walk with a spot of meditation in a park or on a quiet bench somewhere.
Alternatively, if you find it hard to relax in the bustle of city life, try downloading some nature sounds - the sea, waterfalls, birdsong - and listening to the tracks as you walk along or rest.


Ask for a guided mindfulness practice as part of your Roman Beauty treatment
Sometimes it's hard to relax and feel calm during your working hours, but Roman Beauty can help. We offer a variety of massages and holistic treatments that are especially tailored to meet your needs on the day, and also incorporate mindfulness practices as and when we feel you would benefit from it, or you can request a meditation at the start of your appointment, which your therapist will verbally guide you through to help you relax and shut off from the outside world or from an overthinking mind. Book an afternoon or evening appointment to have a relaxing end to a stressful day, or try a lunchtime appointment to get a well-deserved break during a long working day.

We are offering you £10 off any 1 hour Massage in March & April.

Are you a tired mum? Mother's Day Pamper Sessions

Are you a tired mum? Mother's Day Pamper Sessions
Are you a mum with small kids or teenagers?
Are you feeling really tired or exhausted?
Is it starting to manifest physically with aches and pains?
Would you like some time to switch off, to feel nice and relaxed for an hour where you don't have to think about anything or do anything?
Would you just like to feel a bit more like yourself again?


Genuine Mum Feedback
Our mum clients have given us the following feedback that a massage with us has:
*helped to lift their mood
*helped them feel more calm
*allowed them to relax and have time to feel like them again
*and their headaches have got less


Fitting in with your family
If, on an evening, you're rushing around trying to get tea ready and putting the kids to bed - don't worry. We offer plenty of daytime availability as we know it gives you more flexibility in the daytime to find childcare (maybe do a swap with a friend or relative where one of you looks after the kids whilst the other has a massage?)
*have a morning or afternoon appointment so you actually have the rest of the day to feel awake and enjoy the benefits from your massage.
*no trying to battle through traffic to get to us on an evening!


Treat yourself - or your own mum!

It's important for all mothers to carve out some me-time away from their families. But grandparents often do a lot of childcare too for busy working couples.
So, if your mum has been pretty spectacular this year in helping you out, why not treat her a Roman Beauty massage to say thank you for all her help and support?

We are offering you £10 off any 1 hour Massage in March & April.

The Importance of a Good Skincare Routine

The Importance of a Good Skin Care Routine

Are you looking after your skin? Is your skin as healthy as it could be?

The need for a good skincare routine
As well as being the largest organ of our bodies, our skin is also the most exposed. It is under constant environmental pressures and can be affected by diet, our moods, and even our choice of washing powder.
 The skin on our face gets the worst of it. With 43 muscles, our face is constantly in motion. It is exposed to cold winter winds and burning summer sun. As such, it’s essential that we have a good skincare routine to counteract all that damage. 

What classes as a “good” skincare routine will depend on your individual skin type. Those with oily skin will have a different routine to those with sensitive skin. Your age will also affect what your skin requires to keep it healthy.



Here at Roman Beauty & Wellbeing Salon, we stock the best products for your skin, Our 100% naturally derived facial products are full of fruits, plants & berries which provide all the vitamins and nutrients needed to maintain optimum skin health.  
Cleansing
The first step of any routine is going to be to cleanse. Try to avoid bar soap, even those that claim to be designed for faces, as they can be very drying for your skin. We recommend the Tropic Smoothing Cleanser with lemon & eucalyptus. This removes dirt and eye make-up while being very gentle on the skin.
Collect from our Chapel Allerton Salon or order via our online Shop here
 

Toner
If you’re wanting a routine that’s very simple and straightforward, you can move straight to moisturising after cleansing. However, we fully recommend incorporating a toner as this will close your pores after cleansing to ensure no more dirt can enter. 
We recommend the Tropic Vitamin Toner as it is full of vitamins which you spritz on to your face.
Collect from our Chapel Allerton Salon or order via our online Shop here


Exfoliator
Exfoliators should be used once a week to remove dead skin cells, revealing your newer skin to give a brighter, healthier complexion. Be careful not to overuse your exfoliant and opt for a medium grain as some can be quite abrasive, making the skin feel sensitive or sore. We recommend the Tropic Skin Smooth which also has essential oils to leave the skin feeling nourished and moisturised.
Collect from our Chapel Allerton Salon or order via our online Shop here


Moisturising
Moisturising is key for deep hydration and protection. It is strongly advised for those with dry skin, but even those of us with oily or combination skin can benefit from applying moisturiser at the end of our skincare routine. We recommend Tropic Skin Feast, which is deeply nourishing, hydrating, and with vitamin C to protect and repair the skin from sun damage and daily pollution damage.
Collect from our Chapel Allerton Salon or order via our online Shop here

Roman Beauty: only the best and most natural
Many high street products can contain toxic chemicals and parabens which can actually dry out your skin, increase oil production and/or cause spots. This is why at Roman Beauty we only stock and use Tropic products for our Facial treatments. They are Vegan, 100% naturally derived with no toxic chemicals or parabens, and they only include plant-based preservatives.

Collect products from our Chapel Allerton Salon or order via our online Shop here

This firming buttercream is made using a blend of the most nourishing butters from around the world.

Wrap your body in a luscious, creamy blanket of softness which will improve the appearance of cellulite while leaving you with smooth, toned skin.

February 2020 Valentine's Post with self-love meditation


Let's dedicate this blog to Valentine's Day!
Whether you're single or in a relationship, let's use this month to focus on the love you have for yourself. Developing self-love is incredibly important as we can be our own worst critics!



All we need is Love..
Learning to love ourselves isn't always taught to us by our peers in childhood and it's not a lesson we learn about at school, but it's so important as it determines how we feel about ourselves.  How we feel about ourself determines our thoughts, which determines our feelings, which determines our actions and behaviour.  The more we develop an inner sense of love for ourself, the more our outside world will start to reflect this back to us.  It is possible to love yourself without loving every tiny little thing, acceptance of our flaws is enough to help fuel self love. When we develop our love for self, we tend to feel more comfortable, confident, and relaxed with who we are and within our own body.
There are many ways to develop love for yourself, here's a couple of examples you may want to try below;

A great exercise you can do is to think about the people you love and write a list of WHY you love them.
 Write as many things you can think of for each person, for example; is it because they are kind? funny? thoughtful? warm hearted?  Once you have finished your list of why you love other people, go back through it and tick each one that you also are, for example: are you kind? funny? thoughtful? warm hearted? 
You will find a lot of the qualities you love and admire in others you can find in yourself, now reflect this love that you feel for others based on their beautiful qualities back to yourself, for also having these same beautiful qualities. These people already love you, just as you love them; the trick to self love is to stay mindful of this, and reminding yourself of the reasons why you love yourself and why you are good enough, as and when you need a self-love top me up.

Another way to develop self love, is to treat and talk to yourself how you would a best friend.  Often we can be our own worst enemies with the things we tell ourselves in our own minds.  instead of telling yourself you are not good enough, or you don't look good enough, or you can't do this and you can't do that;  Flip your thoughts to the opposite, thoughts of a more caring and supporting nature (talk to yourself how you would a best friend)


The benefits of developing self-love

* increased confidence
* increased inner peace
* feeling more positive about yourself and your own abilities
* a deeper sense of knowing you are good enough
* make better decisions as you are coming from a place of inner strength



5 MINUTE VALENTINE'S MEDITATION FOR SELF-LOVE!
You can do this in silence or play relaxing music in the background.

Sitting quietly, close your eyes, bring your focus to the breath, taking deeper breaths into the body, and on the out-breath allow yourself to make the sound of breath releasing.
Repeat this a few times until you feel your body relax. Allow yourself to relax and your mind to become still with each breath.
Now imagine a pink light at the top of your head. This pink light represents love. See this pink light coming down into your face, behind your eyes, down your cheeks, into your neck, your shoulders, chest, and coming into your heart. See it swirling around in a clockwise direction in your heart, filling your heart with love.
This is love for you, there's a never-ending supply of it.
While still bringing those deeper breaths into the body, allowing your body to relax further with each breath, allow yourself to sit here for a while, breathing the pink light into your heart. Allow yourself to sit in this abundance of love and peace, feeling nourished, safe, and cherished.
Repeat this for 5 minutes or more to feel a difference.

Repeat as often as needed for a little rest and a "love top me up."
