Q: What are the benefits of LED skin treatments?
LED SKIN TREATMENTS
with Sarah Roseworne
When it comes to achieving fantastic skin, you don’t always need to look at invasive treatments to get the visible results you are after.
LED treatment offers a pain-free, non invasive, soothing and rejuvenating skin treatment that works by using four clinically proven wavelengths of UV-free light. Short for ‘Light Emitting Diode’, LED treatments can address a number of major skin concerns by emitting a certain frequency of light energy into the skin’s cells in order to produce collagen and elastin – two very important elements in combatting acne breakouts, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation and redness.
As LED is a non-invasive procedure, the great part about this treatment is that there is no downtime or side effects from it, meaning it can be performed in your lunch break for quick and safe results.
LED treatments are proven to work on all skin types, with a 90 per cent success rate for people who experience it as a treatment. What’s more, LED is not just limited to the face, but can also help treat skin on the neck, chest, arms and hands. It can also be used as an add-on for other treatments to give your skin the best possible outcome.
So if you are having issues with your skin and you are looking for an effective, non-invasive solution, try shining a light on the situation with an LED treatment.

Q: What can I do to help heal a broken heart?
With Cathy Barratt
Love makes you merge with another person, able to feel their emotions as keenly as you feel your own. If you have experienced such bonding, you know that it is a kind of higher reality – and when that bond is ripped apart, it’s as if you’ve lost half of yourself.
Life unfortunately brings situations where someone you trusted betrays you, breaking that trust and creating the kind of resentment that’s hard to release. After being betrayed, most of us have the same reaction; we want to wound the person who hurt us as deeply as we’ve been wounded or we want to rise above the situation and offer that person forgiveness. But neither of these tactics work.
There are actions though, that you can take to heal yourself. Every hurt has its own story, and so does every healing. The key is to keep being kind to yourself.
Gain some detachment. Stand back and view yourself as if you were the helper, not the victim.
Make a plan for emotional recovery. Look at where you hurt or feel wounded and then set out to heal these areas. Don’t rely simply on letting time do it for you.
Feel the hole inside and grieve over it, but promise yourself that you will fill it.
Seek a confidant who has survived the same betrayal and has come through to the other side.
Work toward a tomorrow that will be better than yesterday. Don’t fixate on the past or what might have been.
In the end, when you reach the state of being healed, you will see how fortunate you are. As horrible as betrayal is, forgiveness belongs to those who know how to love in the first place, and you are one of them.
