A Deep Dive into Winter Beauty
Early doors in a new year’s time for taking stock. See where you’re at and do more of what makes you feel better. Here, our experts chat on beauty they swoon over and swear by and health hacks to take you through to the lighter nights.
Is your massage now a monthly must-have? If it sorts your spirit, that’s a wise move. Pep your step with an array of aromatic treatments to detoxify and energise or sooth and restore with leading skincare brands including Decleor, Elemis and Skeyndor.
Different things work at different times of our lives and we’re taking a moment to affirm that helping you navigate the menopause is a thing at Saks. Debbie Passman at Saks Beauty Guisborough says “It’s great that more are talking freely about symptoms and challenges – what lots of us endure is horrible.
“See your GP, get your hormone levels checked and go through your options. And we can also help you feel better with balancing treatments, health info and good chat. You let us know where you’re at. We’ll do what we can to help.”
CLINICAL MENU: CONTOURING
For those seeking advanced beauty choices we have a clinical menu if you want to zap, lift, tighten or smooth. If improving the look, feel and texture of your skin is on your agenda, we offer state-of-the-art contouring and tightening for the body and face.
Kathryn Breen at Saks Beauty Gosforth says “My number one choice is the Venus Concept system. It’s non-invasive and simultaneously treats multiple concerns – wrinkles, cellulite, stretch marks and loose skin. The heat increases collagen to stimulate a natural healing response resulting in dramatic improvement with no pain or downtime.”
SAKS HACK: WATER. ALL-SEASONS.
Kathryn continues *as does every reputable therapist ever* “Drinking plenty of water is essential. And in winter we need it just as much as we do in the summer. However, if you find it difficult to reach for a glass, swap a morning coffee for a hot water and keep it topped up as the day goes on. Add a slice of lemon to flavour and hydrate the skin whilst flushing out toxins.”
Michelle Johal of Saks West Bridgford continues “Great call Kathryn. And for added stimulation to improve skin tone why not integrate body brushing into your daily shower routine – the Elemis Cactus Body Brush is a long-time fave at Saks.
RAISE YOUR BROW
Michelle says “OK, I can talk about glam all day long! Due to those relaxed lockdown beauty regimens we’ve seen more customers embracing au-natural in the brow world. Since first hitting the runway for Burberry back in 2011 Cara Delavigne’s always induced major brow-envy and there’s a major resurgence in channelling a Cara-esque arch recently.
From lamination to creating fluffiness or a more bold, bespoke look with our Saks Brows treatments, our therapists have major know-how and can help you achieve a gorgeous brow.

ON GYNAECOLOGICAL SYMPTOMS
Despite the ongoing challenges posed by COVID-19 and its new variants, it’s very important that if you notice any unusual gynaecological symptoms, that are new and not normal for you, you contact your GP. You can get in touch with them via e-consult or if you do not have access to email you can continue to call your GP practice as you normally would.
FACE. BODY. GLAM.
