Dress comfortably and environmentally friendly

It’s quite shocking when you look at the uses, customs and artefacts of underwear that have been worn throughout history, especially by women. Often, depending on the morality of the time, they were designed more to highlight and hide parts of the body rather than for hygienic or protective use, and always from the male...

Get in shape for summer at illa Carlemany!

Along with the good weather, comes the rush to shed those extra kilos we’ve put on over winter. Our heads are in our hands when we realise we need a size bigger in clothes or find we can’t fit into our swimming trunks. As we all know, the solution is a healthy diet and, especially...

The cold and the skin in winter

It’s a well-known fact that winter affects the whole body, including the skin. Certain parts of the body are especially exposed to the weather: in particular, the hands, cheeks, lips, and part of the neck. These are the areas most sensitive to the cold and must be taken care of. Moisturising the skin every day,...

Take care of your body, at illa Carlemany

While this year’s gatherings around the table won’t have been as extensive as usual due to Covid-19, there would have still been some excess during meals. Now it’s time to return to a more orderly routine, a more balanced diet, and more physical activity. Time to burn off the kilos gifted us by the Christmas...

The best version of you, at illa Carlemany’s specialised beauty shops

Yet when we fully accept and respect the passage of time—after all, time goes by for everyone and there is no turning it back—, beauty is also synonymous with being radiant each day. Improving your physical appearance...

Get in shape!

This year’s summer holidays have been a bit strange because of covid-19, but that hasn’t stopped us from giving into the temptations of ice cream, beer, paella and dinners beneath the stars, albeit in small groups of family or friends. And like every other year, when the summer reaches its final stretch and everything returns...

In the summer, let’s care for our skin

Just as we prepare our wardrobe for the arrival of the heat, with lightweight garments in light colours, it is also important to prepare and care for our skin during the season when we are most exposed to the sun. Of course we like the feeling of the sun on our skin—and it is necessary...

To get in shape after the holidays

As we leave the Christmas holidays behind, we also leave behind all the excesses of sumptuous dishes, sweets and drinks, which begin with corporate dinners, continue with the family Christmas lunch, Sant Esteve cannelloni, New Year’s Eve dinner and New Year’s lunch on 1st January, and draw to a close with the ring-shaped cake tortell...

For a nice start of the year

Everyone celebrates the change of year, to some degree, in a special way, whether it means having dinner at a restaurant with friends and then partying until the wee hours of the morning or staying at home with the family and kids, watching TV and going to bed earlier. Few people are indifferent on the...
