For years now Botox has become a massive Part of maintenance for most women I know. About 6/7 years ago you wouldn’t hear of anyone having it and if you did it was only the odd person. But the last few years the craze of having Botox is as frequent as going to the hair dressers and having a wash and blow.
I was first introduced to Botox a few years back, I never had wrinkles but like everyone I had frown lines when I lifted my eye brows so I tried it out and I have to admit I was hooked. I don’t have much of it and only a couple of times a year as I like movement and I don’t want to look frozen I like to keep it as natural as possible. That is why I go to Aesthetically you I wouldn’t trust anyone else near my face with a needle!! I am the biggest wimp when it comes to needles!! But I honestly don’t think there is anything wrong with a little help here an there as we get older to keep looking youthful. And I swear by the saying that prevention is better than cure. A little bit of Botox can knock years off you.
Take a look at some of the before and afters that Michelle has done in the clinic.

Another area that can be done is the frown lines in the centre between the eyebrows.
And also around the eyes.

A few months ago I was sent a new tanning range called Montana tan. I’m very fussy when it comes to false tan, because there are some dodgy ones out there, but it’s a must because I don’t use sun beds and never will, but at the same time, I can’t stand to be white!
All us girls know how much better we look with a tan, instantly slimmer, make up goes on better and your clothes look nicer with your teeth and eyes looking brighter.
I used to get a spray tan once a week, but it was such a head ache to get off. I’d find myself in the shower for at least an hour scrubbing my skin until it was raw, and I’d still have some stuck on!
I started to do my own at home using self tan, so I could control the amount I put on and not have such a bad time getting it off.
I’ve been using Montana tan for a few months now and I love it. It goes on so easy with your mitt, you only need a few strokes and your instantly brown. What I like about it is that it gives you a really deep holiday tan. My favourite one is the mousse, that’s what I use the most, but if its last minute job I’ve used the 1 hour tan, which is just as dark!
Every time I’ve worn Montana tan I’ve always had people comment and ask what tan I’m using. And the good thing is it’s not hard to take off at all, I’d say I get about 5 days before it needs to be done again, but I use the build up remover and the exfoliater so it comes off as quick as I put it on, plus its odourless and is non sticky! What more can you ask for?
A bit about Montana Tan
Montana Tan brings to the market a fabulous new range of fake tan tanning products including our unique 1 Hour Self Tanning Lotion which enables you to apply and wash off after 1 hour to reveal a beautiful golden tan.
If you desire to have a deeper colour you can leave on for up to 4 hours. This fabulous tanning product lasts for 5 to 7 days and is odourless, non-sticky and fast drying. Also in the range of the best fake tan products around is our Airbrush Self Tanning Spray which can be left on for 4 to 8 hours after applying.
This gives you a beautiful golden tan in 4 hours and a deeper colour if left on up to 8 hours. As with all our fake tan products this is odourless, non-sticky and fast drying. You can achieve beautiful, salon quality, professional results with our airbrush spray tan, which is specially designed to be easy to use in the home.
We also stock a range of quality accessories, designed to make self tan as easy as possible. We highly recommend the use of the Tan Application Mitt, which makes the experience hassle-free and cuts down on any mess. The pre-tan exfloliator is a great way to ensure that your tan is absolutely streak-free and completely even.
It gently smooths the skin and removes any dead skin cells, preparing you for the ultimate self tan. So if you are looking for the best fake tan and spray tanning products then we have everything you need right here.
