Julie and Carrie, two of our salon mangers, have just returned from a fab trip to Hollywood and LA, to visit the California based operations of skin care supplier Murad. The all expenses paid trip was a treat from the nice people at Murad head office, in recognition of Zen Lifestyle’s contribution to the development of the Murad brand in the UK. The trip was part of an event for the Murad ‘Global Superstars’, bringing together a small selection of Murad’s top accounts from around the world.
Apart from all the fabulous restaurants, shopping and sightseeing included in the trip, our two managers gained an insight into the future product developments at the leading cosmeceutical skin care brand. They even got a chance to get their creative juices flowing with an afternoon of painting alongside the great man himself, Dr Howard Murad, who is a renowned dermatologist and pharmacist. As well being professor of dermatology at UCLA, Dr Murad is a world-recognised pioneer and innovator in skin research and technology.
Zen Lifestyle offers the full range of Murad skin care products, as well as all the Murad facials. Zen was one of the first clinics in Scotland to introduce the Murad brand and continues to be one of Murad’s key salons in the UK.

So I’m not going to beat about the bush here – this is the most amazing, super duper, must have, skins new best friend skin treatment you can book in for at Zen!!!
Clear + Brilliant is a safe, unique, non-surgical, non-invasive skin treatment which uses fractional laser technology to fight the natural effect ageing has on the skin with little or no down time. It is a gentle laser that refreshes your skin from inside out replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger looking tissue. It is clinically proven to help even out the skin tone, giving it a radiant and youthful glow as well as improving smoothness and texture, and also reducing pore size. Absolutley fabulous for all skin types, ages, gender – I could go on & on about this treatment, you should definitely come & try it for yourself!
Be warned though – it is highly addictive, once you’ve had one you’re already thinking about booking your next one!!

We all love the Murad range here in the salon especially, as Dr Murad is so so focused on the reseach and development of ground breaking new anti-ageing products. So it’s fair to say when we received the new Time Release Retinol Concentrate we got slightly excited!
Time Release Retinol is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles by 45% in 6 weeks (WOW!) It increases the cellular turnover of the skin, rebuilds damaged collagen to plump creases and crows feet, and contains Hyaluronic Acid which maintains essential moisture for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
When applied you can immediately feel the product working into your skin and the area instantly feels super smooth! My eyes look amazing, it’s definitely one of the best products I’ve ever tried!
Time Release Retinol Concentrate is available now at all 3 Zen Lifestyle salons, £65

We are really thrilled to announce that start therapist Julie Brown has been named as a finalist in the Best Therapist category for the 2013 Professional Beauty Awards. This is a major industry awards ceremony recognising the very best therapists from right across the UK & Ireland, so we are really excited to see Julie named in the top 6 for the second year running.
Julie is one of Zen’s best loved therapists, as witnessed by the long waiting list of clients for her amazing facials, HD Brows and other services. As well as performing treatments at the Hanover St salon, she is also the assistant manager and plays an important role in training and the running of the salon. 2012 has been an eventful year for Julie, with her work as a personal therapist to Nicole Kidman for 3 weeks being a special highlight!
After an initial judging phase to select the finalists, Julie had to fly to London to perform treatments for the judges and was put through her paces with a rigorous panel interview. The winner will be announced at a lavish awards ceremony in London in March. We’ve got everything crossed for you Julie!
