The Taylormade guide to inside out body confidence.

How to feel more confident about your body – and learn to accept it… daily.

Hello everyone, it’s Helen and today I wanted to write a post about body confidence and how to not only like, maybe even love, but CELEBRATE your body in exactly the way that it is in this moment.

Life is so short, cliche I know, but actually, one fact that we can all be sure of. And so many of us spend so much of our lifetime, criticizing and moaning about the current ‘state’ of our bodies.

I get asked a lot by my clients, how I manage to feel good about my body, and I tell them that I too have my down days, of course I do, I am only human. But I made an active choice one day, to get up and show up and to like myself – daily.

You see, body confidence and confidence in general, is nothing more than a mindset.

Yes, there are tweaks and things that we can do to look better on the outside, but have you ever seen those stories, of people who spend a fortune on surgery only to still FEEL unhappy?

So, today, I thought that I would share with you, MY viewpoint on body confidence, and how YOU can begin to cultivate it.  Which leads me to my first point, which is that confidence, is an inside out job – and you need to work at it daily.

Confidence is an inside out job – and you need to work on it daily.

Confidence isn’t something that comes naturally to most of us. It is an inside out job, and it is something that we need to cultivate on a daily basis. Have you ever met a woman who just seems to ooze confidence and you wonder ‘does she EVER have a down day?’ or is she just naturally blessed like that?

Chances are, she knows that she has to put in the mindset work, every day, and has made the active choice at some point in her life, to accept and LOVE her body.

Challenge: Every morning when you get up, make an active choice to look in the mirror, and regardless of any lumps, bumps, scars and wrinkles, say out loud to yourself ‘I bloody love my body!’. Have a little dance, make this fun, laugh, be light hearted about this. Jiggle that belly, wobble those breasts, and thank the Universe that you made it though to another day!

Your body is going to change so you’ve got to learn to accept that.

Have you ever had an image in your head, about how you want to look, and it’s like you put all of your time and energy into focusing on that, and then when you get there, something else has gone a bit skewiff, and you suddenly switch your focus onto that thing?

It’s like a lifelong game of ‘chase the perfect body’. Thing is ladies, your body is going to change, on a daily basis it changes, and there is not much that we can do about it. Well….. I smile there of course, because there ARE things that we can do about it, but even the best aesthetic treatments in the world cannot STOP the ageing process.

So at some point, hard as it may feel, we have to simply make a choice one day (and today is as good a day as any) to say ‘okay, this body is only here for a certain period, so I am going to hug it, and love it, and make the most of it, and celebrate every line, and every wrinkle – because those make your body bespoke and unique!

Make sure that the inside and the outside are on the same wavelength.

Aesthetic treatments are brilliant because they can help you stay looking (and feeling) like YOU – for longer. I would not be running my Clinic if I did not understand the power of this. However – I also refuse to treat women who come to me with such severe confidence issues (or even body dysmorphia) that they hope that an aesthetic procedure will be THE answer for them.

YES it can help you feel good. YES I wholly stand by. BUT – you need to also be working on the INSIDE, and if your insides don’t match your outside, then it’s just a matter of time before you crumble.

Therefore, I am on a mission to spread the word to women, about the importance of self care, YOU time #justforyou, and looking after their mindset in general. I feel that this element has been lacking in the aesthetics industry for some time now, and it’s my DUTY to try and correct this.

As you may have seen, I recently launched my first book titled ‘Your Best Kept Secret’, and I am also in the process of redefining my treatment process. This is because I want things to become more bespoke. I want you to connect to YOU again, and this requires something that goes far deeper than something aesthetic. But when combine aesthetics with a confident mindset – my God, absolutely ANYTHING is possible!

Helen’s final thoughts….

Body confidence, and confidence in general is a mindset and only YOU can choose to create it. So, let me know over on Facebook what your thoughts are on this, and know that I have some really exciting things coming in the pipeline to help us all work on body confidence!

As always, I’d love for you to come and chat to us, over on our Facebook Page, and if you’d like to come in and talk to me about any areas on your body where that you’d like to work on aesthetically, please book a consultation with me, or feel free to send me a message here.

What I will say though, is that be warned – just as I love and adore helping women to like what they see on the outside, as a side effect of working with me, you will also learn to yourself on the inside. Sorry, I can’t help it! It’s just all part and parcel of all that is Taylormade.

Until the next time, have a wonderful weekend, whatever you are doing, and remember – go dance in front of that mirror and shout ‘I bloody love this body!’.

Take Care,

Permanent Cosmetics Eyebrows

3 ways that Eyebrows can change your life.

3 ways that Eyebrows can change your life. 1280 681 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

How permanent cosmetics can be life changing, by Helen Taylor.

Hello, it’s Helen and today I wanted to talk about the 3 ways that I believe that enhancing your eyebrows can change your life.

There are different methods to achieve the optimum brow shape. Permanent cosmetics can be used on the eye area (brows and liner) and also on the lip area. Whether you know it as microblading, semi permanent makeup or even permanent makeup, one thing is for sure – the effects that permanent cosmetics and great looking eyebrows has on the women who come to see me– are  life changing.  Here’s why:

You look like your best self – daily.

You wake up to make up and look like your best self, daily. Let’s be honest, most of us prefer the way that we look when we are wearing makeup.

Now, you can wake up, looking and feeling like the best version of you, and what’s more, you look the same, daily.

If you have ever spent hours trying to recreate yesterday’s perfect eyebrow look you will understand what I am saying here. Permanent cosmetics can take the daily worry out of great looking eyebrows.

You save time and that’s priceless.

Who doesn’t want to save time in the morning, when getting ready? How much time a woman spends on applying her brows for example, in the morning, can naturally vary greatly – but I have worked with women who are exasperated and riddled with anxiety, because they get up at something like 4 in the morning, to meticulously apply their eyebrows. Just gaining that extra time in bed, and finding themselves free of the mental load, can honestly be totally life changing!

You can look (and feel) like yourself again if ill health has got the better of you.

Ill health, such as vitamin deficiencies, thyroid conditions, and treatments such as chemotherapy, can mean that hair loss can occur for some women, and this can obviously affect their confidence. If this has been the case for you, then having for example, your eyebrows enhanced can mean that you feel like you are taking back the control again, and this is really powerful.

It may seem like a cosmetic enhancement procedure, but for some, taking this step when they are undergoing chemotherapy, can mean that they develop a fighting spirit, that puts them back in the driver’s seat and helps towards fighting cancer.

Whatever it is that has you considering a treatment with myself or the team, we would be more than happy to welcome you into the clinic. To find out more about the treatments that we offer, head here.

And don’t forget to keep up to date with our daily posts over on facebook

Until the next time, have a wonderful weekend, and I will speak to you next week, feel free to send us a message or call us on: 0800 690 6871 if you have any questions about permanent cosmetics or any treatments on our treatment menu (which you can download here).

Permanent Makeup

Permanent Makeup can be life changing – and here’s why.

Permanent Makeup can be life changing – and here’s why. 2000 1333 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

Think it’s all about looking pretty? Think again. Here is why permanent makeup can be a godsend.

Hello, it’s me, Helen, and after a whirlwind week since the launch of my Taylormade skincare products and my book ‘Your Best Kept Secret’, I’m getting back into the swing of things, here over at the Helen Taylor Clinic

The other day I was talking to a client, about the life changing effects of permanent eyebrows, and as we have had several requests about the procedure this week, I thought that I would write this blog post.

If you have seen any of my other posts, about the positive benefits of getting permanent makeup (lips, eyebrows, eyeliner), then you will know already that I highly rate this procedure. But it’s easy to get caught up in the ‘save time, and wake up to makeup’ side of it, so today I wanted to talk about a different side to things.

Permanent makeup can help someone who has been diagnosed with cancer to feel like they’re taking the power back.

I am often contacted by ladies who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, who ask me ‘Helen, is there any way that you can give me some eyebrows, as I don’t think I can handle losing them when I have to start chemo’.

My answer – is yes. Of course, if you are already undergoing chemo, then it’s not a safe procedure for you. But if you are newly diagnosed, getting permanent makeup can give you a sense of control, at a time where everything is spiralling. It can also help you feel better about your appearance when you wake up in the morning, and the more confidence that a woman has during a time when she is fighting cancer – the better!

It can help women with thyroid conditions feel confident again.

An underactive thyroid can mean a thinning of the eyebrows (and hair all over the body). Permanent makeup can add volume to thinning brows, for anyone who is living with a thyroid condition. A sluggish thyroid can make a massive impact on a woman’s physical appearance – weight gain, thin sparse eyebrows, and thinning hair in general, can really knock a person’s confidence.

With anxiety and depression also going hand in hand with this, the last thing you want is for the you that you see in the mirror to get you down too isn’t it?

It can help with asymmetry of the facial features.

If your lips are thin, or your eyebrows are different shapes and sizes, then permanent makeup can be a real confidence booster. It can make asymmetrical features appear…. Symmetrical! What can be a real bother for one person, may not even be visible to another – but if it is something that bothers YOU when you get up and look in the mirror, then it might be time to address things.

So – there you have it!  Permanent makeup can be confidence enhancing, reconstructive, and life changing. If you have any of these issues going on for you and you would like to speak to me in confidence about it, then book a free consultation or email me.

Or…

Until the next time, have a lovely bank holiday weekend and I will speak to you soon,

Helen Taylor Launch Event. May 16th 2019. Draycote Hotel, Rugby.

Helen Taylor Launch Event. May 16th 2019. Draycote Hotel, Rugby. 1890 1890 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

Hello everyone. Today I wanted to talk about last nights launch event, which took place at the Draycote Hotel in Rugby. It was the launch of my skincare products ‘Taylormade’ and my first book, ‘Your best kept secret’.

Well, where do I even begin? To say that it was an emotional evening for me is a bit of an understatement. Even though I got all of this done really quickly (around three months, I think?) it still felt like waiting for the launch event, seemed to go on forever.

As we approached the evening, I felt a mixture of emotions, from excited to nervous and I had moments where I thought ‘wow, I can’t believe that I have done all of this!’ to ‘what the hell am I doing?’.

When it came to the moment where Richard made the introduction and I walked into the function room – I honestly felt so overwhelmed to see all of your familiar faces there.

But once I started talking, all of the nerves and all of that worry, suddenly just seemed to leave me. Here I was, talking about my products, to a wonderful bunch of people who I class as my Taylormade family. What on earth was there to be nervous about?

The highlights of the event:

Again, where to start, as there were SO many, but I think that the biggest highlight for myself, was actually SEEING people touching and feeling my products.

Seeing what had started out as a concept being something that people were talking about. It made me realise, that cheesy as this may sound – dreams really can and do come true for people, and that if you put your mind to something your really CAN achieve it.

I also felt honoured to have such a wonderful team around me, and there at the event to support me. I still pinch myself sometimes, at how the right people, the right ideas, everything just seemed to come together all at once, so quickly!

The launch of Taylormade:

The event wasn’t just about the launch of my products, it was about the launch of Taylormade. I have always referred to my brand and my ethos as being Taylormade and all about ‘YOU’. But recently, when I started to create my products, something clicked on a deeper level. I realised that I want to change my entire approach to treatments and how we operate in the Clinic.

And so as we move forwards, with the new Taylormade branding, I plan to offer time slots that allow you to come and see me, for some bespoke unique YOU time.

I will take a look at what is going on with your skin, and there on the spot, I will make an assessment of what needs treating for you.

I can then provide you with a mixture of ‘treatments’ that work on all of the little areas that you want enhancing. This is where aesthetics moves from being ‘one size fits all’ to truly ‘Taylormade’ and from that first session onwards, you then just come back and see me as and when you want something ‘enhancing’.

One thing’s for sure as I reflect upon the launch evening – I have so many plans in the pipeline, so much that I want to bring to you, my clients – because I have never been one to just settle. I don’t want to just ‘fit in’ to this industry. I want to be a game changer, and I want YOU to be who is the focus, not just the treatments – because the magic happens when the two come together and something Taylormade is created.

Today, I am sitting at the Clinic, wrapping by hand, the books that are being sent out to people. I can’t wait to hear what you think of it! If you didn’t get your copy and would like to treat yourself to one, you can get it by clicking here.

Until the next time, have a great day and please raise a glass to Taylormade!

3 reasons that permanent makeup is a total game changer

3 reasons that permanent makeup is a total game changer 2000 1443 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

Hello, it’s Helen and today, I wanted to talk about permanent makeup.

Now I don’t know about you, but my time is really precious. Whether I am at home or in the Clinic, I value every minute of it. I am constantly looking for ways to manage my time for effectively, and so as you can imagine, I don’t like spending longer than I need to when it comes to applying makeup.

One of the biggest game changers that I’ve found that has made a difference to MY life, and also to hundreds of clients – is permanent makeup.

With permanent makeup applied beautifully, I can get up and go, and just ENJOY my day. I absolutely LOVE permanent makeup and here are 3 reasons why permanent makeup is a total game changer

1.   You save time. And life is short. Who doesn’t want that?

In many ways, saving time is the main reason as to why lots of us choose to get permanent makeup applied. Because life is busy, and spending time at the mirror attempting to create that perfect brow quite frankly stresses us!

I’ve worked with clients who would spend literally hours applying their makeup, maybe YOU are one of them. When they have reported back to me about how they have found things since having their treatment, the answer is always that it’s life changing.

I’ve had women contact me,  in particular after getting permanent eyebrows done, to tell me that they save hours a day as they no longer stress about applying their eyebrows!

2. You look better on the outside.

Have you ever stood and drawn your eyebrows on, only to wipe them off 5 minutes later? How annoying is that? Permanent eyebrows is the most requested form of permanent makeup at the Clinic and really will put a stop to that.

Getting permanent makeup means that you can skip that process and ‘get up and go’, knowing that you look just as good in the morning as when you did when you went to bed

Professionally applied permanent makeup is a form of artistry and the results are outstanding. When I work with a client, I like to make sure that I don’t class it as a ‘job complete’ until I have achieved perfection.  Take permanent eyebrows for example – every single little hair is ‘created’ which leaves  a very natural looking browline. You can’t achieve results like that with makeup

3. You feel better on the inside.

Getting permanent makeup can honestly be life changing. Clients have reported back to me that they feel like a weight has been lifted! It’s so easy to become obsessed about your makeup, always checking in the mirror to see if it still looks perfect, setting the alarm clock to get up at a ridiculous time in the morning, and going into a mild panic at the thought of actually staying out overnight anywhere.

Waking up to makeup can give you freedom, and that in itself is priceless.

So, if you have been thinking about trying permanent makeup, but would like to know a little bit more about it, why not get comfortable and have a read of the information here.

And if you already know that it’s what you’re looking for, but want to come in and discuss it, then book your free consultation here.

As always, it’s been a real pleasure to have your company, and I look forward to seeing you. And don’t forget to keep being social over on Facebook, you can find us here.

Until the next time,

3 ways to wake up looking (+ feeling) fabulous – on a daily basis

3 ways to wake up looking (+ feeling) fabulous – on a daily basis 1000 581 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

How do you feel when you wake up in the morning?

Do you spring out of bed, and fall in love with what you see in the mirror? Or, like many of us, does your morning start off more like this…. You hit the snooze button (several times over!), you drag yourself out from under your duvet, only to arrive at the bathroom mirror, looking far from human, let alone anything close to fabulous.

The way that you FEEL, first thing in the morning is actually really important. You are setting yourself up for the day that is ahead of you. By making 3 simple changes to the way that you wake up daily, you can have a huge impact not only on your psychology, but also on the way that you live in general. Below, are my 3 ways to wake up looking (+ feeling) fabulous. We’ll be talking permanent makeup, facials, and mindset tips!

1. Wake up + take a ‘moment’.

Don’t worry, I am not going to tell you to spring out of bed in the morning and be thankful for the world around you. But, one great way to start the day, is to set your alarm just 5 minutes early, and take a moment to ‘CHOOSE your attitude’. How do you want to feel today? This tip is oh so simple but the effects really can be life changing.

Think about the mood that you want to be in. Visualise the day that you’d like to see happen unfolding. Know, that YOU get to choose your mindset. Just FEEL how you want to feel, and allow yourself to ‘take a moment’. Then, move onto the next step.

2. Prepare for the ‘you’ that you want to see in the mirror.

If you’ve followed the first step and are feeling fabulous, but then you head into the bathroom and take one look in the mirror, and are not happy with the face staring back at you-  your whole mood changes. If you start your day feeling negative, then everything else is affected. So, make it your mission, to work on preparing your appearance so that you LOVE what you see staring back at you. Here are my top tips on how to achieve that:

  • Treat yourself to a regular facial. I highly recommend the HydraFacial, which addresses just about any skin concern and gives you that Celebrity wow factor. From deep hydration, to plumping out fine lines + wrinkles, from treating acne and reducing Hyperpigmentation and pore size, this is a must for everyone.
  • Wake up to Makeup – I don’t know about you, but I usually feel better, once I’ve put on my makeup. Permanent MakeUp means that you can wake up to makeup, (and wake up to feeling fabulous) every single morning.. Eyebrows, eyeliner, and even your lipliner, can now all be ‘done for you’. This not only means that you LOOK better, it also saves you a heap of time in the morning. Now who doesn’t want a piece of that? Permanent makeup really can (+ will) change your life for the better.
  • Drink some lemon water. A great way to start the day is to drink some lemon water, ideally warm water (as it’s more gentle on the digestive system), with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Not only will it detox your entire system, it’s great for your complexion.

3. Create (+use) a ‘secret weapon’ daily ritual.

If you’ve adopted steps 1 + 2, you’re on your way to a whole new you when you start your morning rituals. One way that you can keep the momentum going, is to create (+use) a ‘secret weapon’ daily ritual, that will act as a ‘trigger’ to fire off a positive mindset.

One example, (and it’s best to keep this super simple), is to treat yourself to a luxurious body lotion  and and as you go about your morning beauty rituals, massage it into your body and imagine that you are coating yourself in positivity.

Know, that every time you reapply this body lotion, (on your lunch break for example), you are triggering that positive mindset and are reminding yourself that you are CHOOSING fabulous.

So, there you have it. From choosing your morning mindset, to permanent makeup and secret weapon rituals – say hello to tomorrow morning, and wake up looking (+feeling!) FABULOUS.

Let me know over on our Facebook Page how you get on with this, and enjoy the rest of today,

Until the next time,

Helen Signature

Facial Fillers – and Four Places You Can Have Them!

Facial Fillers – and Four Places You Can Have Them! 1024 1024 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

Fillers can dramatically improve the appearance of your face – but when you think about them, what’s the first thing that springs to mind? It’s probable that it’s the image of plumped up lips, but did you know you can also have filler injected in various areas of the face?

It’s the reason they’re referred to as ‘facial fillers’ and not just ‘lip fillers’ – and the type we use here at Helen Taylor Aesthetics offers benefits which last several months.

In the Lips

Enhancing your natural pout, lip fillers can make your pout appear healthier and more feminine – and they can easily be broken down over the course of a few months. What that means for you is your fillers won’t be a permanent fixture in your face; if you decide you’d like to go au naturale again, you can!

In the Cheeks

Plumping the area for a fresher, brighter look, cheek filler is performed by our highly-skilled team to give you more confidence in the way you look.

Correcting sunken cheeks and contouring the area to restore lost volume, cheek filler is a safe option for anyone who’s looking to spoil themselves with a treatment in 2019; go on, get booked in and look forward to a new you in the new year.

For the Tear Trough

Focusing on the depressions and droopiness that can appear under the eyes, tear trough facial filler treatment can make you look fresher and more youthful. It’s needed when the bone and the skin loses density, due to age.

If this is you, you may find that you have eye bags or dark circles – but the tear trough plasma filler treatment at Helen Taylor Aesthetics can help a great deal.

To Replace Surgical Rhinoplasty

It can be massively daunting to go ‘under the knife’, but if you’ve always wanted a daintier-looking nose and don’t want to commit to surgery, non-surgical rhinoplasty– via the wonder of facial filler – is the route to go down.

This safe filler is also hugely effective – so why not chat to our team here at the clinic and get booked in for your free, no-obligation consultation?

We’d also be happy to talk you through any concerns about facial filler – or answer any of your questions. Plus, if you’re feeling anxious about your upcoming visit to the clinic, this blog should help prepare you.

All-Natural Fillers

It’s called Biofil and it contains your own blood. Sounds gruesome but it really does pack a punch when it comes to boosting your appearance – and with it, your confidence. Once reinjected into the skin, the filler can target the appearance of wrinkles, but it can also be used to treat much larger areas. Biofil is a vegan-friendly product that has revolutionised the aesthetics industry. It uses a plasma-based product extracted from your blood and it works to add volume wherever you need it.
