Icebox Cryotherapy Atlanta | Time-Machine Meets Hard-Reset

Icebox Icebox Cryotherapy Atlanta | Time Machine Meets Hard ResetReady for a rapid-restart on life? I’m one for trying new-age regimens and beauty secrets, so I stopped by Icebox Cryotherapy and got the Oxygen-Party started. They are best known for providing recovery services for athletes and active adults, but host a number of aesthetic, health & wellness benefits as well. After stepping into the cozy space, and brushing shoulders with one of the local NBA players, I knew I was in for a pleasant uber-luxe experience. I was given furry shoes and a robe, and before i knew it, was standing nakey in the capsule. It was really really frigid and I luckily enough, I was able to focus on the founder, Alia Alston who helped me through the process. The treatment was rather short, including a freezing oxygen immersion followed by rapid cycling on a bike.

After careful research, she was introduced to this therapy after a car accident to assist in her own recovery from ailments and pain. Her discovery of it’s immense ability to alleviate chronic-pain & symptoms and shorten her healing time, was so thrilling Alston and brother decided to open a few locations.

Icebox is carefully tucked within the perimeter of busy Buckhead and offers a space for in and out recharge therapy. I must warn you: I squealed like a pig as my toes, tush and top half froze below. However, I gratefully admit dumbfounding results within one session.

I lost weight, I metabolized food more effectively, I slept better and I felt like a teenager, over 10 years past teens. It was quite a refreshing experience, I’m happy to look forward to regular treatments.

They provide:

A natural, safe, non-invasive service to aid athletic performance & recovery, pain management, inflammation reduction, health & wellness by promoting & stimulating the body’s natural healing process through cold therapy. Cryosauna is a revolutionary and cutting edge technology endorsed by many doctors, professional athletes & teams, trainers, Dr. Oz, The Doctors TV show, Nike & ESPN.

Cold therapy has been commonly used as a procedure to relieve pain symptoms, particularly in inflammation, injuries and overuse symptoms. Icebox Cryotherapy uses gas form nitrogen to lower the client’s skin surface temperature for a short time to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. The benefits of the 2 ½-3 minute session are decreased muscle soreness, quicker recovery time, boost immune system, tighter healthier skin, reduction in inflammation, metabolism boost, natural detox, quicker surgical recovery time by stimulating tissue repair and many more.

Eau du Jimmy Choo, Flash | Summer Fragrance for the Floral Senses

Jimmy Choo Flash 771x632 Eau du Jimmy Choo, Flash | Summer Fragrance for the Floral Senses

 

So you’re one for adopting a new fragrance, every once in a while, who isn’t? Right when you think you have browsed them all, you’re not quite sure if the one you whiffed before is caring over the scent from the previous and the one you are smelling now has merged all three concoctions of notes. Ah ha! fragrance shopping is just one of those chores. Starts off great, clear frame of reference, then suddenly you are swept into a montage of the last 5 fragrances you sniffed, creating more than a light headed confusion and a lingering nausea.

Though you would love to forget, we’re sure you remember quite vividly. The Valentino smelt just like the Stella, and now over to the Viktor & Rolf only to have the fragrance girl do a cutsey sashay over to the dare we say — Cartier. Even if you narrow down to fleurs, musks or citric blends, the world of nodes is still a new terrain to navigate everytime you take the course.  The curse of the scavenger hunt for the new signature scent and it can’t be rebuked. If you had known any better you would just go around like a 7 year little gal who’s mother won’t allow her to wear any scents, and collect samples from every counter, only to carry them home and try them one by one. That would afterall be quite rediculous.

How does one cleanse the nasal palate anyway? Let’s not reference that sorbet scented body splash you wore as a teen (did someone say Bath & Body). Aside from your choice of stripperesque fruity blends, it’s time to narrow it down. Our choice this season for the update of the fragrance repertoire, Jimmy Choo Flash: It’s both fresh and floral without overloading the senses and has that designer name we’ve come to trust.

For obvious reasons, we’re nerve-wracked to take a chance on anything of lower priced or caliber, so for your reference: this carefully layered beauty retails for $98 at Nordstrom.com. Hopefully it will linger with your chemistry as well as it does with ours. If not, feel free to take one for the team, and head over to your favorite department store and sniff yourself into a dizzy…Thanks!

Inter-Seasonal Style, Dizzy into Dreamy

Moodboard Uniprice Inter Seasonal Style, Dizzy into Dreamy

 

Technically, Spring should already have sprung, but here we are, still wearing our winter jumpers and feeling thoroughly sorry for ourselves. Meanwhile, you want to go shopping, but the shops are full of summer dresses and short shorts that you just can’t imagine you’ll get the chance to wear any time soon. This calls for a bit of smart inter-seasonal shopping; choosing key quality pieces that you can rock in this harsh extended winter and the warm summer, if it ever materializes.

The key to a good inter-seasonal look is to pick a fabric that will provide a layer of warmth in winter, but which is also cool and lightweight enough for warmer weather. Dresses are the easiest item of clothing to reboot and when it comes to fabric, jersey is a classic choice. This chic See by Chloe shift is a strong transitional piece. The brightness of the print will perk up a drizzly day and will also work in bright sunlight, and the pixelated cobra print is a great update on the ubiquitous animal print trend.

For cold weather, throw on a pair of tights, some sturdy boots, a lightweight knit and a leather jacket, and then simply update it in summer with a pair of flats and a statement necklace.

Moodboard Uniprice 2 Inter Seasonal Style, Dizzy into Dreamy

Maybe you’re sick of waiting for the sun to arrive, and you’ve decided to jet off to warmer climes and get some sun. We don’t blame you; swapping a soggy commute for a sun lounger and a cocktail is a no brainer.

Looking your best by the pool or on the beach is no mean feat. Of course you’ll need a great bikini and a pedicure, but you’ll also want to make sure your make-up is working as hard as you play, which means choosing waterproof products that give maximum effect with minimum effort.

The whole point of holiday glamour is to look effortlessly chic, so you really don’t want to be performing poolside touch-ups every time you step out of the water. Keep it simple: a pop of lip colour and sweeping lashes will give you a great holiday look with a low-maintenance air. Dab some waterproof concealer under your eyes if you’re feeling a little jet-lagged.

A white bikini is the best way to show off a tan, and is pretty much timeless, think Kate Moss on a St. Barths yacht and you’re there. Curvier girls can’t go wrong with a more retro shape, and strapless styles eliminate the dreaded tan line issue.

By placing items from hundreds of online stores in one convenient place, Uniprice offers a relaxed shopping experience that will leave you more time to plan your summer wardrobe, whether you’re cheating the wintry weather with a multi-purpose outfit, or rocking a stay-put pout and a knock-out bikini.

Niché Beauty | RX for Brown Skin Provides TLC for Women Of Color

RX for Brown Skin 721x632 Niché Beauty | RX for Brown Skin Provides TLC for Women Of Color
Though we are all created equal, lucky for us, we’re not all created the same. Every facet of divine design calls for different maintenance and the specificity of one’s skincare regimen is to be determined by season, reason or cause. As we age, following the mantra “Black don’t Crack” can be rather self-fulfilling; however, just because it isn’t cracking, doesn’t mean our skin doesn’t have a need for nourishment and health.

With advancements in preventative chemistry and technology, there’s no wonder these products have emerged. Present day innovation and mother nature have provided our largest organ the luxury of being catered to with every waking need in mind.

The determinant for SPF doesn’t rely on the amount of melanin, rather environmental factors due to global warming and must be merged with a free-radical prevention plan comprised of an anti-oxidant balance from fruits such as pomegranate. RX for Brown Skin is a full-spectrum skincare program taking your day-to-night routine from A-to-Z.

Their gentle cleanser for normal skin types, gently lifts away dirt, makeup and impurities to reduce surface oils and unclog pores. The oil-free, fragrance-free formula is gentle and won’t irritate skin. Hydrating ingredients formulated into the cleanser replenish moisture leaving the face feeling clean, soft and refreshed.

Bright Skin Complex – A blend of Soy, Pomegranate and Hyaluronic Acid. Soy to specifically target uneven skin tone. Pomegranate is a powerful antioxidant to help protect against free radicals. And, Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate skin for a softer, smoother texture.

Green Tea – An antioxidant to help protect against environmental toxins that can age the skin. Their lightweight, oil-free cream provides continuous skin hydration throughout the day for skin that’s luxuriously smooth and soft to the touch. The hydrating formula draws in and absorbs moisture from the air for all-day hydration while also calming skin and  promoting a softer and smoother texture.

RX’s alcohol, fragrance & oil-free toner combines skin-soothing antioxidants with hydrating and exfoliating ingredients to help control skin oils and bring skin’s pH balance back to its natural state. It also hosts a glycolic acid component that gently exfoliates to lift away dead skin cells and keep pores clear. Witch hazel and willow bark help detoxify skin and regulate skin oils, while bright skin complex delivers antioxidant soy and pomegranate to help calm and soothe irritated skin.

As a third step: hydration, dynamic moisturizing complex incorporates a number of key components to maintain the skin’s hydration and deliver powerful humectants attracting water and restore the skin’s natural moisturizing ability.

DayMoist CLR is a complex of plant derived ingredients that improves the hydration level of the skin for at least 24 hours after a single application.

Shea Butter, harvested from the karate tree in Africa, is a natural source of Vitamins A, E and F, and is ideal for drier skin types as it helps revitalize, soften and maintain skin moisture. Cocoa Butter, extracted from cacao beans and used for centuries in Africa for its moisturizing and healing properties, is naturally rich in antioxidants to help soothe, hydrate and replenish the skin.

Advanced SPF 15 sunscreen plus anti-aging formula not only protects against sun-related hyper-pigmentation, uneven skin tone and dark spots, but also helps skin look years younger by enhancing texture, elasticity and hydration.

• Powerful UVA/UVB sunscreen protects against harmful effects of sun
exposure
• Proven botanicals such as goji, açai and green tea help slow the signs of skin
aging
• Red seaweed helps to deeply hydrate for firmer, more youthful-looking skin
