Life is the Special Occasion 

  Why wait for next week, next month, next year? Why wait for a birthday or anniversary? 

Why wait at all? 

Life is your special occasion to be celebrated everyday. You deserve that “just because” treat. As a working mom of a 9 month old, it is very easy to put myself second, every time – really I don’t mind at all, as I love everything I do for my baby girl. Moms take on everything; the corporate world, planning family meals, shopping, budgeting, the household and remembering to remember to put that date of that “thing” for “what’s its name” in your iPhone calendar that also needs to be charged. 

In the world wind of reports, emails, laundry detergent and spaghetti – you lose yourself. 

Some days I feel frazzled, worn down and running on empty. Sometimes you need to be selfish and spoil yourself. Win a little of yourself back, just for you. 

That is why I love to visit the La Vita Spa at the Palace (in Durban beachfront). It is a short drive to bliss. I can check out from the world for an hour or two. I don’t wait for my birthday or when someone else (aka husband) wants to spoil me. I do it for myself.  

The calm relaxing environment and stunning views of the Indian Ocean, truly captive you.   

 Why wait – life is your special occasion, celebrate it and steal some special time for just because. 



Non surgical face lifts 

Interestingly if you ask plastic surgeons and anti ageing specialists what makes people look older, you will hear a myriad of responses. From wrinkles, to hooded eye lids, to shadows, to hollowed temples, to black under eye rings, stringy neck, deep nasolabial folds,  thin skin, thick skin, pigmentation, ruddy complexion and many more.

In analysis however at first glance the one single thing that is a give away of ageing is the sagging of the lower half of the face and the changing of the shape from a triangle to a square.

So if you had the choice of having surgery to hooded eye lids or a half neck lift which is becoming more and more common, the one that would produce the best and most youthful appearance would be the neck lift which would instantly restore the triangle shape to the lower part of the face.

Besides surgery the one treatment that does make a difference is non surgical face lifts whether they be by micro current, ultrasound, or radio frequency, they all tighten the lower half of the face and restore the triangle shape. Coupled with face exercises (u can find loads on line) such treatments can provide you with noticeable and sustainable results.

La Vita Spas in South Africa and UK have been successfully providing courses of non surgical face lift treatments and also encourage daily face exercises which stimulate the muscle tone and tighten the skin.
