Looking after your skin stuck at home

NEW Beauty Blog Series – Looking after your skin stuck at home!

I don’t know about you but we’re sure missing time spent with our beauty therapist. A good chat and some professional pampering is always a top priority for us. So we are really missing our professional treatments during lockdown. Starting today we have a new series which aims to help you look after your skin at home (including some DIY beauty hacks!) and be giving you some ideas of treatments you might like to try once you can visit the salon again!

Missing your Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion (MD) is the ultimate exfoliating facial and it works hard to get your skin in top condition.  MD removes all the build up of daily dirt and grime as well as stimulating new collagen production and working progressively through the layers of the skin to help with more stubborn concerns. Unfortunately, we can’t recreate this all for you at home, but if you are missing your microdermabrasion treatments then we have some great tips coming up on the blog to keep you going until you can get booked back in.

First tip is to get into a good skincare routine. You should be doing this anyway so now is a good time to get into the habit!

Good skincare routine

We always recommend having a good skincare routine, and this is now more important than ever. We asked our experts and Sarah Beeston our senior trainer recommends this home skincare routine to follow;

Step 1:

Gently clean your face using a cream-based cleanser or a mild face wash to remove the surface layer of grime.

Step 2.

Using a gentle face exfoliator, apply in sections and move fingers in a circular upward and outward motion to slough off dead skin, paying particular attention to areas where you feel a build up of dry skin like the nose or chin. Remove using damp cotton pads or, for a more luxurious feel, a warm flannel.

Step 3.

Apply a toner if you have one.

Step 4.

Mask: Apply a mask suitable for your skin type with either your fingers or a brush and leave on for 10-15 mins. We will be sharing a recipe you can make at home so keep an eye out for this!

Step 5.

Remove mask with damp cotton pads or a warm flannel 

Step 6.

Apply toner again if you have one.

Step 7.

Moisturise & SPF pop some moisturiser on your fingers and warm between hands apply using upward and outward strokes and don’t forget your neck! Finish with spf applied in the same way.

Act now to maintain a healthy body

The saying ‘healthy body, healthy mind’ is thrown about regularly and although it’s true it’s also worth remembering that having a healthy body is an end in itself, the benefits of a healthy body are numerous and will help to ward off illness and aid recovery. As we age, our body will begin to feel the effects if it isn’t properly maintained and without maintaining a good level of fitness we will begin to feel a decline in our muscles’ strength, our flexibility and with that can come injury and illness.
