Unless you go to a highly reputable salon like Pure Beauty in Lichfield for certain beauty treatments, where the standard is beyond high, there’s a chance that you could walk away feeling less than satisfied. From iffy lashes to nasty nails, we’ve heard more than one horror story from people who’ve opted for cheap treatments, so we thought we’d take a look at some of the ways things can go bad and what you can do to help.
One of the most common treatments that we see going wrong is false eyelashes. A well-trained technician will use glue to attach false lashes below the upper lash line to make the lashes look as natural as possible, but infection is very common if tools aren’t cleaned properly and irritation from the glue can also be an issue. Decleor Harmonie Calm Relaxing Milky Gel-Cream for Eyes is designed to soothe irritation in the eye area and can really help if you’re suffering with bad lash extensions.
If you’ve had extensions removed, for whatever reason, your nails will be dry because they’ve been covered for so long. Nail technicians will use something to dry the surface of your nails before applying gel because it makes them stick better. You’re going to need something good to give your nails some moisture back, like Elemis Sweet Orchid Monoi Body Oil, which is designed to provide superior moisturisation for dry, parched or mature skin or nails.
Having your hair done can leave you feeling fabulous, but it’s not uncommon for chemicals like peroxide to leave your scalp feeling a little worse for wear. Treating your scalp to an oil treatment like Elemis Japanese Camellia Body Oil Blend, which is designed to rehydrate and soothe dry skin and scalp, will help to relieve feelings of irritation and will also help to treat your newly dyed hair to some moisture, too.
Having a pedicure can feel like the height of luxury, but some treatments can leave you at rosk of infection, especially if you’ve shave your legs within 24 hours of the treatment, or if you’ve had your nails or cuticles cut back too far. Keep some Elemis Tea Tree S.O.S. Spray in your bag and guve your feet a spritz after treatment to kill any lingering bacteria.
If you’ve had a chemical peel, it’s completely normal to have very sensitised skin afterwards and it’s SO important to use a sunscreen when you leave the house for a few days afterwards. Dermalogica Super Sensitive Shield SPF30 is ideal because it’s intended to be used on skin which is at its most sensitive.
