Most people eat their lunch during break, while some break a sweat in the gym. I, on the other hand, prefer to pamper myself with beauty treatments. With about a thousand and one things on my plate right now, “me time” is pretty much non-existent and the only time left is during lunch time. These lunch time beauty treatments offer results that are almost immediate, and they take up little to no downtime so I’m safe to head down to the office after. If you have a hectic schedule like mine, check out these 5 beauty treatments you can effortlessly sneak into a busy workday.
1. Micro Needling
Before you freak out on the word ‘needles’, micro needling is not as scary or painful as it sounds. Needles (common size of 0.5mm) are used to puncture the skin to produce new collagen. It feels prickly on the skin and may not be for everyone, especially if you have a phobia of needles but the results are amazing with improvement of skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size and stretch marks. Micro needling can be performed on all skin types and colors, and even preferred over lasers as there is no risk of burning.
Microdermabrasion is basically an exfoliation and skin rejuvenation procedure that uses tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer of skin, revealing softer and brighter skin. It works best if you have skin issues such as dull skin, brown spots and age spots.
3. Under eye circle treatment
Under eye circles can be a real pain. It makes you look ten times more tired than you already are and requires heavy duty concealers to cover those up. If you’re sick of them, try getting dermal fillers like Juvederm Ultra to correct those bad boys. The procedure takes about 15 minutes and you’ll be out the door looking like you’ve had tons of sleep in no time.
4. HD Eyebrow Treatment
I know I’m not the only one out there taking FOREVER to do my brows. They take up half of my morning routine just so I can have the best damn brows for the day. If you want to cut that time into half, try the HD Eyebrow treatment. The life changing treatment, as said by many, is the newest eyebrow craze including a complete makeover of those brows – tinting, waxing, tweezing, clipping, threading and filling in. All in a span of 20 minutes.
5. LED Teeth Whitening
Color trends come and go, but white teeth is definitely here to stay. LED Teeth Whitening treatments takes just about 20 minutes at the dentist, leaving you with pearl-white teeth that looks great on everyone. Results are immediate, and can lasts for up to a year. There are no food or drink restrictions after the treatment, so feel free to swing by Starbucks to get your favorite cup of coffee afterwards.
