Who was Saint Valentine?

Saint Valentine was a widely recognized 3rd-century Roman saint, commemorated in Christianity on February 14. From the High Middle Ages, his Saints’ Day is associated with a tradition of courtly love. There are two different Saints’ Lives for a St Valentine on February 14, but they are probably the same man. It is said that the Emporer Claudius II had a man called Valentine arrested in 270 AD.

Known to all as Claudius the Cruel, the Emporer had to maintain a large army. However, the Romans of the day were reluctant to join the Legions of Rome and Claudius and his advisors thought the reason for this lack of interest lay in the reluctance of men to leave their wives and sweethearts behind and go fighting abroad.

So, to solve this problem, Claudius decreed that all marriages and engagements in Rome were to be banned. However, Valentine, a holy priest, decided he would defy the decree and carried on performing marriage services. As you might imagine, Claudius the Cruel was not impressed. The prefect of Rome ordered the arrest and imprisonment of Valentine and that he be put to death by clubbing and then beheading.

Whilst imprisoned, the legend has it that Valentine fell in love with the warder’s daughter and, before he was put to death, he wrote her a farewell love letter which he signed ‘Frome your Valentine’. And so, a legend was born and lovers have celebrated February 14th and the holy priest Valentine who was made a saint by the Roman Catholic Church. See more

Only after the most traditional methods had failed to rid make-up artist Beth Thomas of her flabby stomach did she resort to this controversial, quick-fix jab Aqualyx.

This new non-surgical treatment called Aqualyx claims to be a safe and effective alternative to liposuction. As you can imagine, 1 jab wouldn’t take long to administer as opposed to the time taken with other methods.

London resident Beth Thomas, 23, was one of the first women to try it.

She forked out £750 to have the fat-zapping treatment, which promises to “remove stubborn areas of unwanted fat and stop it coming back,” on her stomach after conventional diet and exercise methods failed.

Beth had three sessions during which a therapist injected the water solution into her stomach, to try and shift her stubborn belly rolls. See more.

Beauty and Modern Culture

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then some of us need glasses I think!

It’s not normally my usual Monday morning programme. But, for some reason, I found myself watching ‘Lorraine’. For those of you who have never seen the programme, its ‘Magazine’ type offering. A mixture of fashion, advice, cookery, hints and tips and general odds-and-ends.

Today on Lorraine there was an item about Love Island. I have never seen Love Island but from the clips I did see, I shall not be making the effort. The sister of oe contestant was offering us ‘insights’ into what might or might not be going on.

Anyway; What made this programme interesting for me was the ‘work’ that the young lady must have had done. Most notably, her lips.

The crueller amongst us refer to lip work that is just that little too much on the large side as to make it look obviously false as ‘Duck Face’ or ‘Trout Pout’. The actress Leslie Ash springs to mind when we think of celebrities who have gone down this road.

Any beauty treatments, surgical or non-surgical really do need real consideration before you embark on what could be permenant change to your body.

For this reason, Designed for Beauty are always available for help and advice for any beauty treatments. As well as offering a wide range of Surgical and non-surgical treatments, we offer helpful advice on the pros and cons of any beauty treatments.

What is the effect of sunlight on human hair?

Is sunlight harmful to our hair?

Our hair is our crowning glory. From our early youth until our last day, we care about how our hair looks.

Some people go to great lengths to present themselves at their best. For instance; a man may decide on a #1 crop, long flowing locks, a state of the art multi-coloured style or simply shave the whole lot off.

Unfortunately for some men (and woman) for reasons best known to mother nature, human hair loss kicks in. This does tend to limit the styles on offer.

Sunlight on Human hair

One of the many questions asked at Designed for Beauty at Monmouth is; “does the sunlight damage my hair?” Well, I chose a few websites for the best answers to this question and here is a couple of the most enlightening.

“Go outdoors and embrace it. The Sun creates a lasting impact on your hair – both good and bad. While the rays allow for a boost in Vitamin D, they also can damage the scalp. The solution isn’t to avoid the Sun entirely – it is to hydrate your hair from the inside with natural oils.”

“If your hair has prolonged exposure to the sun, UVA and UVB rays can damage the outside cover of the hair strand, called the cuticle. Signs of sun damage to your hair include discoloration, dry and brittle strands, broken or split ends, thinning and frizziness. Damaged hair has a dry look and feel. ” More..
