Prepare in Advance

After getting that much needed massage or skin treatment, it’s time to plan ahead. Both men and women should pick their party outfits well in advance to avoid the stress of last-minute shopping. Whether you’re going to an office party or a family gathering, Birmingham has superb shopping centres to suit all budgets and styles.

Go All Out with Makeup and Grooming

With grooming becoming more popular each day, it’s easy to get an immaculately trimmed beard. What’s more, Shakina offers Shoulder, Neck, Scalp and Face Treatment for men as well as hair removal.

Women can book their manicure, pedicure, eyelash and eyebrow tinting, and eyebrow shaping through our 12 treats of Christmas. After prepping your face, spend some time choosing the right hair and makeup combination. Waves and messy updos are easy and chic looks for any occasion. This year’s holiday makeup trends are pointing to sparkle and glow. Don’t be afraid to experiment with metallic eyeshadows or layer glittery gloss over your lipstick. The holidays are the perfect time to shine!

Post-Holidays Remedies

The gallons of alcohol and pounds of salty food consumed during the holiday period can wreak havoc to your body. The lack of sleep doesn’t help either. Luckily, we know our way around easy remedies!

Puffy and Red Eyes

Treat puffiness by putting chilled cotton balls, a gel eye mask or cucumber slices over your eyes upon waking. Even splashing cold water over your eyes makes a significant difference. Once that’s done, use lubricating eye drops, such as artificial tears, to moisturise your eyes and reduce redness.

Bloating and Puffiness

Perhaps it was the copious servings of turkey or all that champagne that caused the bloating. Regardless of the reason, the best cure is drinking.… Water! Caffeine-free herbal teas also do wonders to your system. Staying hydrated before and after your event is crucial.

Aching Limbs

If you partied until you dropped, you’re going to feel it the next day. The best way to recover from aching legs or feet is to get a massage or a foot soak. And why not book Shakina’s ESPA Invigorating Foot Treatment?

Dry skin

Book a moisturising treatment at Shakina to bring back the healthy glow and nourish your skin.
