The beauty and wellness industry can be strange sometimes and comes up with some pretty crazy ideas for treatments. However, sometimes these treatments turn out to be a lot better than expected and give us some pretty impressive results. Rather than paying for another manicure or getting your hair cut, why not opt for one of these weird and wonderful beauty treatments and see how much good they can do for you?
Have you ever wanted to just destress and become one with nature? This new craze doesn’t have any expensive gadgets or creams that you need to buy, but it comes highly recommended nonetheless. It’s called ‘forest bathing’ and it’s exactly what you think it is. Inspired by the Japanese ‘Shinrin-yoku’ forest therapy, at these facilities you can bathe outdoors amongst the tree tops and just bask in the beauty of the outdoors. While there is no ‘miracle cure’ involved, this therapy is incredibly relaxing and helps you switch off you r brain. It also gives you the chance to comfortably relax in natural light and get away from harsh indoor lighting and electronics that distract us so easily.
A lot of women – and a few men – suffer from stretch marks and they are the absolute worst. It’s almost impossible to get rid of them and they can ruin your self-esteem. Bye, bye swimsuit and hello jeans. But, there have been a lot of improvements in this industry lately and a lot more treatments have hit the market that actually work! Carboxy therapy is one of them, and there is no fuss or mess with this treatment; it’s just a half hour session and there is zero recovery time, so you can even visit a clinic at lunch and get back to work as usual half an hour later.
Carboxy therapy involves injecting CO2 into the skin tissue to promote blood flow and help the skin heal naturally on its own. It’s suitable for any and all skin types and works on other types of scars as well! While it won’t get rid of all of your stretch marks completely depending on how severe they are – no treatment other than surgery can – it can reduce the appearance of them a lot and give you a lot more confidence to wear all of the crop tops and mini-skirts you have been missing out on.

No, this doesn’t involve being locked in a dark room and crying yourself beautiful. This beauty treatment is all about staying cool and being put in a cold chamber full of liquid nitrogen at a temperature of -110 degrees. The other version of this therapy involves dunking yourself in a barrel or bath full of ice water. More than a few celebrities have had this treatment, like Daniel Craig and Lindsay Lohan, and although it might not be the most fun treatment, it gives some pretty impressive results.
First of all, exposing yourself to cold temperatures can improve your metabolism, making it easier for your body to digest what is put in it. It encourages slimming, which means that a couple of weekly sessions could a see you on your way to healthier body weight. Cold temperatures also tighten your pores to prevent dirt from being trapped in them. If you give your face a good scrub before your session, you can keep clear skin for longer and avoid getting blackheads.
