Coronavirus Lockdown

We hope you’re all keeping well 😊

We are still unsure of when we will safely be able to reopen our doors, in the meantime here are a few pointers to help look after your hair, skin, nails, brows etc while we remain closed.

Hair
– Where possible, refrain from using heat treatments on your hair, give your hair a break from hair dryers, straighteners etc.
– Try a hair mask or leave your conditioner in for longer to give your hair some extra nourishment.
– If you’re finding your hair is out of shape and getting in your way, try using grips to pin bits back, also plaits or twists.
– Try to refrain from scraping your hair back and tying  it tightly, this will cause breakage.

Skin
– Now is the time to give your skin a break from make up or use minimal amounts. Perhaps instead use a tinted moisturiser, for example.
– Moisturise in the morning after cleansing and use a night cream if required.
– As we’ve been having some wonderful sunshine, please make sure you’re using sun protection on your skin. Most daily moisturisers contain SPF but it’s worth checking and you might need a higher strength.
– Perhaps try a hydrating face mask, this type of mask is generally suitable for all skin types. However if you’ve got sensitive skin it’s worth doing a patch test just to make sure.

Nails
– Use nails oils and hand/nail creams as much as possible, all the extra hand washing is bound to cause irritation and dryness, so this will help.
– Rub coconut or almond oil into the base of your nails and cuticles.
– Keep nails short to limit breakages, it’s best to use a emery board rather than nail clippers or scissors .
– Nail strengtheners are good, it’ll add a barrier to your nails to help protect them.
– Wear gardening gloves and rubber gloves when possible.

Brows
I know lots of you are going to be struggling with your brows, my advice would be to let them grow!
– Use this time to help thicken them, use tweezers to remove the obvious ones but don’t go to close to your shape.
– If you’re used to having a tint, use a brow pencil instead, keep the point of the pencil sharp and use small strokes to create your desired shape.
– Trimming your brows yourself isn’t easy – try to avoid! But if you really have to… comb brows upwards, use small scissors  and just trim the ends and don’t take them too short!
