What our students say…..
“I have taken many modalities as a massage therapist, reflexologist, etc., but your course hands down has such a fantastic income potential. In addition, I find it very creative and the results are amazing. I have done “Bellanina” on all ages, even those women who are in their 70’s and think this is it and they better make the best of what they have and then there is “Bellanina Facelift Massage.” I have a client who is 76 years old, when I finish the Bellanina Facelift Massage, her attitude and feeling of self worth becomes transformed. She told me, “I feel beautiful!”. I just wanted to share that with you and THANK YOU 100 times over for giving me the opportunity of learning and being certified as a “Bellanina Facelift Specialist”.Lauretta I, New York

Mother Nature keeps some of her greatest secrets to better skin care tucked away in her plant, flower and herbal remedies. One of the greatest hidden treasures is Aloe for its wonderful and effective healing properties. Widely known for its use on burns and skin irritations, did you know that aloe is also a popular ingredient in anti-aging skin care products?

So how does aloe benefit the skin exactly? It begins by hydrating the skin cells which is perhaps the most important part of achieving healthier skin overall. By refreshing your cells and providing them with the moisture they so desperately need, you are allowing healthy new skin cells to develop. It is the accumulation of dead skin cells that leads to your skin appearing aged, dull and lackluster.

Many skin care products utilize aloe in combination with other herbal and natural remedies to maximize the benefits and tackle multiple skin treatments simultaneously. Since aloe can soften those persistent dead skin cells, it makes exfoliating them away that much simpler. By revealing the healthy new skin cells just beneath the surface of all that build up, your skin will begin to look smoother with a better, more even texture.

Aloe stimulates and increases blood flow to your skin cells. As a topical ointment it can be used directly on irritations, burns, rashes and sunburns to reduce inflammation and soothe pain and itching. This is achieved because aloe contains natural anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. Note: The use of aloe for medicinal purposes should always be under the advice of a doctor – this article is should not be used for medical recommendations.

Finding products that utilize Aloe is not a difficult task. Aloe is used all over the world and the Cosmeceuticals industry is no exception to this. Try an aloe infused moisturizer to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Daily use will help rejuvenate the skin and allow healthier new skin cells to develop. A deep cleansing mask will help to alleviate clogged pores and clear skin blemishes. Use a sun block containing aloe to prevent damage from the sun before it occurs or a topical aloe moisturizer to reduce damage that has already occurred.

Find your Aloe treatment today and you to can benefit from all the secrets Mother Nature has to offer.

Aromatherapy is a service growing in popularity across the United States as people seek new ways to decrease stress and increase their energy through natural and holistic means. This technique blends the use of essential oils with therapeutic massage body work to relieve tension, stimulate relaxation of the mind and help increase the energy flow throughout the body. Aromatherapy seeks to utilize the power of your senses to indulge your body and mind throughout your experience.

The use of essential oils is pivotal to any aromatherapy treatment because it is these specific oils that will provide many of the benefits this service offers. “Essential oils” is a general term that includes natural, aromatic, volatile, plant oils and absolutes. These are often coupled with other natural ingredients to increase the effects such as oils, powders, sugars, clays and mud. These combinations will not only provide the stimulation to your senses through scent but your skin will benefit as well from the ingredients of the natural products.

Essential oils are NOT the same as perfumed oils and this distinction should be clearly understood. Perfumed/fragrant oils have synthetic chemicals added to them and will not provide therapeutic benefits for the body. These products are not regulated however, so it is important to really understand the ingredients of any oils and understand if they are true essential oils designed for aromatherapy or not.

Aromatherapy is the unique combination of the healing powers found within all natural ingredients and the benefits offered through intense muscle massage and bodywork. Therapists trained in aromatherapy are skilled in determining the correct balance of oils, natural products and technique that will benefits the client to the fullest extent possible. Some therapists are trained in holistic techniques that utilize the benefits of aromatherapy as a treatment for many chronic health conditions.

As with any type of massage therapy, the benefits will depend entirely on the individual receiving the treatment. Although massage therapy offers many health benefits, this therapy should not be used in place of other therapies. Aromatherapy is a treatment that can be enjoyed by anyone and should be seen as an indulgent experience that will provide a temporary escape from the stresses of everyday life and stimulate the mind and body. This can be a wonderful gift for someone in your life or a chance to give yourself the gift of relaxation.

Looking back over the years of abuse you put your skin through and its no wonder one day you wake up and realize you don’t recognize the face staring back at you in the mirror. There may be fine lines around your eyes, a slight sagging in your cheeks or perhaps your skin tone is no longer even in color. Youth may be wasted on the young but knowledge and experience has given you the key to living a healthy and happy life so why let your face look old when you are in the prime of your existence?

Anyone who watches Sex and the City knows that being forty or fifty doesn’t mean slowly down and accepting a slow and inevitable decline. Take back your life and know that once the kids have grown and retirement is on the way, this is the time to seize life and live it to the fullest! You’re not ready to slow down so why shouldn’t you look your best at any age?
There are two types of aging that both men and women should be aware of: intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic aging is the natural and genetic process of aging that begins in the early to mid 20s. Most of this aging is determined by our genetic roots. Ever hear the expression “if you want to know what a woman will look like in twenty years, look at her mother”?
Extrinsic aging are factors that have been influenced by the environment such as smoking, pollution, sun damage, etc. This area includes anything that we have exposed our skin and bodies to throughout our entire lives! Yes, this includes all those fabulous tans from your twenties.

Fine lines and wrinkles are perhaps the most obvious sign that our skin has lost some of its former elasticity and collagen. The hallmarked “crow’s feet” around the eyes, wrinkle between the brows and laugh lines all reflect hours of joy, sorrow and stress in our lives, but who wants those reminders all over their face? Fight this foe with products specially designed for mature skin and target these problems. There are several high quality moisturizers available that will boost collagen production and restore some of the lost elasticity which will help diminish the appearance of lines on the face.
Uneven skin tone is characterized by the formation of darker areas of skin, brown spots or variations in color predominantly on the face and hands. This can be the result of a variety of factors but the result is the same – discoloration of the skin that can be embarrassing and unsightly. There are many simple home remedies including serums, masques and creams that will help even out the skin when used correctly.
Dry or rough skin is a common problem for many people (young and old) but fortunately has a simple remedy. As we age our ability to shed dead skins cells decreases dramatically. Over time the dead cells on the surface of our skin build up and make the skin appear dry, rough and flaky in appearance. Removal of those skin cells will help to alleviate this problem and reveal younger and smoother skin in a short amount of time. A good exfoliant will clear up this problem but remember the skin only needs to be exfoliated occasionally (once or twice a week) – overexfoliation can lead to irritation and cause more problems in the future.

Take care of your skin by either taking preventative action in your twenties or restorative action when you realize you no longer look like you did when you were twenty. Try to add one or two new items into your daily skin routine, mix and match products until you find a combination that leaves your face feeling smoother, younger and a better reflection of the person inside. Now is the time to put your best face forward!

                With so much advertising and media today it is sometimes difficult to weed out fact from fiction. Companies will make claims about the effectiveness of their products and how it will dramatically reverse the hands of time but how can the average consumer really know the truth? Nina Howard believes that the real proof is in the results she sees in the mirror every day.

            A thirty second television ad can’t show the benefits of a product adequately. It can’t begin to explain to the emerging baby boomer generation that now is the time to take a stand against early signs of aging and put a stop to the detrimental effects it can have upon the skin. That is why the director of Bellanina, Nina Howard, is willing to be the poster child for the benefits of proper skin care.

            Nina has been faithfully using her products for over a decade. Daily cleansing, toning, moisturizing and correcting as needed has kept her skin youthful and vibrant. After attending her forty year class reunion she was named “Best Preserved” by her fellow classmates. This is not the result of an overnight magic wand treatment – this is the result of dedication to proper skin care and taking the time every morning to keep her skin looking fabulous every day!

            Aging is a natural process that can be affected by genetics and external factors. By knowing this and taking control of the situation as soon as possible it is within your grasp to prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, decrease uneven skin tones and find a solution to redness, dry or cracked skin and other common problems. Don’t think of aging process as an inevitable decline in your appearance because it does not have to be. Aging is accumulation of wisdom and experience and by knowing that age your chronological age becomes just a number, not a punishment.

         Follow Nina’s example by not letting Mother Nature take control! Bellanina products are available in three wonderful lines including Botanicals, Naturals and Cosmeceuticals. Each line offers a range of products that will focus on specific skin care issues relevant to you and your needs.

         Take a page from Nina’s book and don’t let your age keep you down. With her high spirited dog, Ling Ling, trying to keep up, Nina spends her days working hard and isn’t letting anyone tell her to slow down and “act” her age. After all, you are only as old as you feel.
