Be a perfect 10

Karin Romano, who runs the Perfect 10 salon in Vale do Lobo, is originally from New York State and has a background in sales and management. She worked for nine years for a well-known cosmetic company in NY, Boston and North Carolina, before moving to the Algarve four-and-a-half years ago. She started ‘doing nails’ three years ago. “I specialise in Gel nails from IBD and Bio Sculpture,” she explained. “I was certified in Lisbon for both of these courses.” Karin has two therapists on hand to offer massage, body treatments, facials, manicures and pedicures, reflexology and aromatherapy. Karin also offers an exclusive new Airbrush Make-up technology service, as used in the movie and TV industry.


This month, Perfect 10 at Vale do Lobo Shopping is offering The Resident readers a detox package for those interested in shedding a few of the holiday kilos, or just a kick-start to a new healthier lifestyle.

Oceanic Detox: A regular systemic detoxification is important for everyone in order to keep the body running smoothly and, besides, inner purity improves the reflection of outer beauty. Karin’s detox involves brown seaweeds, blended for their detoxifying action, mixed into a fine paste and applied to the entire body. The skin absorbs the active elements, helped by the soothing heat of a treatment blanket, to promote perspiration and the elimination of toxins. After a refreshing shower, a specialised combination of cooling moisturisers is applied to your newly purified, restored body. The package includes one Express Body exfoliation and two Detox Body wraps in the same week. Then two Contouring Wraps each week for three consecutive weeks. The salon also offers home-use products to enhance your treatment benefits and help block 80 per cent of the formation of fat cells and tone the appearance of cellulite. Special package price 520 euros (saving of 55 euros).
