Posts in HDC

A couple of weeks ago I finished my HYPOXI program. If you haven’t caught up on the action so far, you can read about my first experience, how it changed my eating and lifestyle habits, the struggles I faced midway through, and the booster I needed. If you have read all those then you are up to date and the following will make sense to you … I hope.

So when we last spoke I was having serious struggles dropping a single bit of weight. I could feel I was slimmer, I thought I looked a little slimmer and clothes I couldn’t do up before were now doing up, so surely I had to have lost some weight. I think the final results speak for themselves.

In total I did 19 sessions of L250 and 12 sessions of HDC. The “end” measurements were taken at the beginning of my 19th session so these results are excluding any weight loss I have had from the final session onwards.  Continue Reading

Fluid retention. Those are two words I know all too well. For someone who is usually classed by medical folk as dehydrated, it is amazing how much fluid I retain. So after my first weigh-in after using the HYPOXI L250, and we noticed the results were not looking good, it was suggested I consider using their HypoxiDermology (HDC) machine which, among other things, helps to fight the water retention.

The HypoxiDermology treatment is used prior to a session on the L250 or other HYPOXI machines, and some of the benefits include accelerating the results of other HYPOXI treatments, detoxing toxins in the body, improved skin texture and reduction in cellulite. Prior to starting HYPOXI I didn’t care too much about my cellulite because until I got rid of the fat I had no plans to get in a swimsuit, BUT I was aware of how poor my skin texture was. After 13 sessions of HDC (used prior to the L250) I am ready to share my findings and review of the HDC.  Continue Reading

HYPOXI L250 Machine

Last month I started a course of HYPOXI to help me lose some weight and tone up the fat. I introduced you to the L250 Fitness Trainer and since that time I have undergone two weigh-ins and commenced treatment on another machine, the HDC. I am only a few sessions away from finishing up but before I do I wanted to give you a midway rundown of my progress. It has had ups and downs, twists and turns, and nothing went as planned.

If you didn’t catch my Vegan blog post I do recommend reading it because I tell you how HYPOXI played a huge role in getting my health and body into shape. Ok, it isn’t completely in shape yet but if it wasn’t for HYPOXI I probably never would have realised just how bad I was. So let me continue from where I left off in my previous HYPOXI postContinue Reading

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Dermaquest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser

Face cleansers are seen as quite an underrated product in terms of our overall skincare needs, but they’re actually really important. The correct cleanser for your skin should remove dirt, debris and build-up that otherwise gets in the way of your other skincare products delivering their best results. A vast majority of skin issues can be activated simply by using the wrong cleanser. When it comes to anti-aging, it’s essential to not use a face cleanser that is drying or stripping. Hydration is key, and that’s one of the major claims behind the DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser.

As I continue my fight against aging and dry skin I’ve tested the DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser. Is it worth the price tag? Read on to find out.  Continue Reading

Female Hair Loss Before and After

Female hair loss and hair thinning are a growing sector within the beauty market. I used to think female hair loss was a beauty issue and as such could be treated with beauty products. Self-inflicted hair loss is my most common concern. I blamed my tight braids, hair irons and chemical damage. However, the fact remains that the leading causes for female hair loss are health related.

When my normal amount of hair fall dramatically increased, with noticeable receding of my hairline, I panicked. I didn’t know where to begin with treating it but I couldn’t understand why it was happening. I’d stop styling my hair in tight do’s, I rarely heat style and I haven’t dyed my hair in almost 2 years. I ruled out self-inflicted hair loss so I went straight to my GP (doctor) to ask for advice. It turns out that my female hair loss was completely reversible for less than $20!  Continue Reading

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Trefiel Lace Face Mask, Moisturising sheet mask skincare.

If you follow beauty on Instagram it’s highly likely you’ve seen the Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask. They look like a piece of black lace, often seen adorning the faces of cute beauty influencers. What they actually are is a range of sheet masks. Really pretty sheet masks.

The Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask is available in four formulations – Moisturising, Brightening, Repairing and Toning. Trefiel initially launched with just the Moisturising mask but later rebranded and added 3 more masks to the line-up. I chose to review their original Moisturising Face Mask.  Continue Reading
