What do your nails say about you?

What do your nails say about you?



Nail trends come and go, but often we stick to our go-to shape without a second thought. Read on to find out what our favoured nail shape says about us and which you should really be trying.

RoundThis classic shape is says it all; you've worked the same style for some time and you most likely stuck with the same manicurist for years. Your wardrobe isn’t as pedestrian; you favour timeless over trend-based pieces and you like your nails to take a backseat to your sartorial choices.

Tip: This can be used to make hands that are a little bigger look smaller as it directs the eye down the natural contour of the finger.
Try this: The round shape suits most nail types and is the perfect base for trying out new shades and textures. 

Square This shape is overall less subtle than the pointed or oval-based shapes so you’re probably the type of person who doesn’t mind trying loud colours or exploring nail art. Your style runs the same course with experimental or statement pieces.

Tip: The key is to avoid making nails look shorter which is what this shape tends to do. Try filing the sides of nails to keep this look long and elegant, not stunted.
Try this: If you have a narrow nail bed, but steer clear if your nails are on the wider side as it won’t flatter.

Stiletto You’ve been watching the ins and outs of the nails world closely and know this is the shape has been steadily gaining momentum since seen on the spring/summer '13 runways. You don’t shy from the spotlight, so that’s why Lana Del Ray, Rihanna and Nicole Richie favour the same style. If you’re matching this with a simple evening look and not OTT trophy jackets, you’re on the right track.

Tip: Avoid dark colours like black and semi-black purples and reds. Think haute, rather than Halloween.
Try this: If you have a short nail bed as the space needed to create the tip adds length.

Pointed - A diluted version of the stiletto nail, this is for those with modern taste. Quality is important to you, and you won’t go for anything that looks dated or vintage. This softer version of the stiletto has a future-classic appeal that suits you perfectly.

Tip: Don’t grow nails longer than a centimeter past your finger tip or you’ll be treading close to tacky.
Try this: If you have a wider nail bed this one is for you as it draws the eye to the narrowing tip.

Squoval (square-oval)You’re not into experimenting and you like the status quo. Simple, elegant and halfway between a rounded and square nail your manicure matches your style that errs on the classic side which you update regularly with seasonal accessories.

Tip: You can alter this style to suit your finger shape. Go slightly more rounded if you have wide nails and if you have a thinner nail width you can afford to go more square.
Try this: If you want a simple wear-anywhere shape, or if you're a fence-sitter between an oval and a square (the best of both worlds!)

We look forward to seeing you at Lexie’s and experimenting with your nail shape and colours.

Colour of the week at Lexie’s is: Nude

Skin & Mind

Posted on June 12, 2014 at 6:12 AM Comments comments (325)
At Lexie's we have been reading lots of articles on how to get inside the mind of your skin and how closely your mind and skin are linked.  The government have now committed funds to providing psychological support for skin complaints combining Skin & Mind.

It is very interesting this co-dependant relationship between skin and our psyche which isn’t a new development.  It starts before we are even born. The skin and the nervous system originate from the same tissue in the foetus, explains Dr Christopher Bridgett, a London based psychiatrist who specialises in psychodermatology.  The tissue known as the ectoderm forms the skin and then curls inwards at the top to form the brain. As a result your brain and central nervous system which sends messages throughout the body and your skin are all intimately connected, phrases like red with anger and pale with fear have become phrases used by people regularly, because the same network that allows the brain to communicate with the skin and vice versa also comes into play when our emotions are heightened.

This implies not only do we have to make sure we use the correct products for our skin but we have to relax the mind and de stress to have the perfect complexion. Stress caused by work, anxiety and the fast pace of modern living, may present itself on the skin’s surface in many ways.  In the form of rosacea, rashes, eczema, psoriasis, acne, hormonal breakouts, dull complexions, fine lines and dehydration.
“When your innermost feelings show themselves via your skin for the world to see, it can feel like your body is betraying you,” says Dr Anthony Bewley, consultant dermatologist at London’s Barts Health NHS Trust.
Psychodermatology is about helping you take back control. Rather than thinking, ‘Why is my body doing this to me?’
patients can access the dermatological and psychological tools which will help them deal with the problem more completely.   Forget the eyes being the windows to the soul, if you really want to know how someone is feeling just take a look at their skin.   Whether its developing uncontrollably itchy eczema while preparing for an important presentation or a tell-tale blotchy rash all over your neck during a tricky interview or breakouts after a relationship split, the intrinsic link between our brain and our skin means our emotions are written all over our faces.

At Lexie’s we offer a wide range of combination treatments for the face and body, feeding your skin all the nutrients and vitamins it needs, together with relaxation, encouraging the mind to slow down, clear and rest. This improves well-being on the inside thus showing on the outside, resulting in a more relaxed you promoting a radiant glow.

Environ - The new RAD Spray SPF25 - Available at Lexie's.....

Posted on May 29, 2014 at 4:21 AM Comments comments (377)

There has been lots of talk on the news and in the press highlighting the three toxic ingredients that can be found in many sun protection products.

The new RAD Spray SPF25 is free of these toxic ingredients and is so pure it can be used on babies, over six months.

Be sun aware
Be safe in the sun
Be sure of what is in your sun care preparations 

The new RAD Spray SPF25, in a 120ml retail size bottle, meets demands for a lighter, more fluid formulation that spreads more easily over the skin while retaining all the benefits of the original RAD cream. The new formulation was created with an SPF25 in order to gain valuable certification from the Cancer Association of South Africa. This broad spectrum, medium protection sun lotion contains four different sunscreen elements which defend against UVA and UVB. Various antioxidants and vitamins also increase the level of protection. 

  • Provides a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 25.
  • Easily-absorbed milky texture can be sprayed onto the entire body for a silky after-feel.
  • Contains various antioxidants, including vitamins C and E, rosemary leaf extract and colourless carotenoids derived from tomatoes, which have been scientifically proven to assist in protecting against free radicals and sun damage.
  • Malt Secrets® (barley seed extract) is rich in polyphenols and ferulic acid. This ingredient is proven to work in synergy with vitamins C and E and has excellent anti-ageing and antioxidant properties.
  • Recognised by the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) as a broad spectrum sunscreen providing adequate UVA and UVB protection.

Directions of use:
Spray onto your hands and rub Environ RAD Spray SPF25 in an even layer to the face, neck and body. It is recommended to apply before going in the sun and to re-apply frequently (every 1.5 to 2 hours) to achieve optimal sun protection.  Wait a few moments for the cream to be absorbed.  It is suitable for use under make-up.   It is suitable for all skin types and for all ages, even on a baby from the age of six months.

A spray not a spritz! A note from Environ® founder Dr Des Fernandes:
“This is not a sunscreen to spray on like an alcohol-based spray. No one can make an effective safe sunscreen that is simply sprayed on the skin without being massaged over the skin.
“I am fundamentally opposed to an alcohol-type spray because first of all it does not ensure uniform protection, and there is considerable pollution of the atmosphere from these sprays. Furthermore, they can be inhaled and there are no studies to show safety of inhalation of sunscreen agents.”

Proto-col Pure Collagen Skin Supplement Tablets - Available at Lexie's

Posted on April 17, 2014 at 4:36 AM Comments comments (369)

Proto-col Pure Collagen Skin Supplement Tablets......

Collagen is a natural protein that is made up of amino acids the natural building blocks of our skin. Collagen is found throughout the body in skin, muscle, tendon and bone, and makes up 75% of the total protein of the body.

Your natural supply of collagen starts to decrease from around 25 years of age at a rate of about 1.5% per year, reaching approximately a 30% loss by the age of 45.

This causes the formation of fine lines and wrinkles of the skin, particularly noticeable around the eyes and the mouth.
This is because the skin becomes less elastic with age.

   Available at Lexie's.
