Beatta: I am a huge fan of exfoliators, and you should be too. Why do I love exfoliators? Because they make my skin look smoother, clearer, and brighter; my skin actually has a rosy glow. So here’s the skinny: exfoliators help remove the dead skin cells that build up on your skin and make it look dull and lifeless. Exfoliation is a process that occurs naturally, but as we age our skin cells don’t renew themselves the way they did when we were young (ever wonder why kids have such amazing skin? That’s why). Sadly aging slows everything down, so exfoliators are there to help promote skin cell turnover; they also stimulate circulation, which leaves your skin looking smoother, and clearer. There are two main types of exfoliators, physical (such as scrubs) and chemical (such as a peels or alpha hydroxies).

Summer Time, Hammer Time

Couldn’t agree more, pedicures at only £22!

92 Q

Ladies it is summer! Which means that those toes are going to be out and, pedicures will be needed. No worries, if you can not afford to get a deluxe spa pedicure, you can always do it yourself. Most people don’t know that having unhealthy nails isn’t good. There are many cases where unwanted growths such a funguses live and grow under the nail surface. Don’t let it be you!

Keep your feet cleaned! Please don’t walk around with your shoes off! It is not lady like and you could step on a piece of glass! It is also unhealthy. Try to avoid walking around your home bare foot also!

Hairy toes? Remove that hair! It isn’t feminine. Try to wax or shave that unwanted toe hair.

Keep your feet moisturized! Lotion or olive oil should do the trick. Lotion or oil your feet at night and cover them in…

Hygiene must be top priority in any beauty salon

Since I have opened my home salon called The Ezina Sanctuary, based in Witney, I have come to realise the importance of hygiene in the beauty industry. I trained at the International College of Beauty College of Beauty in Witney and I also trained with Kate Taylor from CNDCND Cheltenham, both of which emphasised the importance of health and hygiene and what procedures to follow.

I have only been running my salon for 10 months but have already had client who have come to me from other salons with lots of hygiene issues. I have seen what damage drilling a nail can cause, I have seen bacterial infection on the nail. Obviously these salons do not put their clients first.

I thoroughly clean my room daily, clean towels for every client, disinfect my files regularly, use CND Cool Blue on hands, wash my towels at 60 degrees, all disposable instruments are new and then thrown away, just a few simple rules, doesn’t take long but is very important.

The Importance of Removing Your Shellac Correctly

I run my own salon from home in Witney, my salon is called The Ezina Sanctuary and I specialise in nails mostly, CND Shellac being one of my most popular services. I am been professionally trained by CND to apply and remove Shellac and I cannot express more the importance on the removal of Shellac. CND have produced a retail kit that can be bought by my clients allowing them to remove their own Shellac at home, using, the CND wraps, and acetone, there is also a mini solar oil and orange wood included. All of my first time clients for Shellac are given an aftercare sheet which explains the importance of correct Shellac removal. Clients must NOT peel their Shellac off, even if it has chipped and looks ugly. By peeling off the Shellac, peels off layers of the nail plate, causing future damage to the nail plate such as peeling and splitting. When a nail starts peeling any future Shellac application is at risk of not lasting the 14 days. Regular solar oil applied twice a day is an absolute must also, conditioning both the nail and the cuticle. Following these simple procedures can leave you with beautiful, manicured nails!!
