The summer is over, we are no longer going out, we don't bother to wax our bits, wear as much makeup or wear our nice clothes, instead we tend to put the baggy clothes on & hibernate for the winter
- oh as well as start saving the pennies for Christmas!
The last thing we need is poor retention with our lashes!! But here we go again...
Twice a year, Autumn and Spring, our bodies react to the changing seasons. Our bodies decide it’s time to shed our hair (including our lashes) faster than usual to adjust to the new temperatures and/or lack of sun.
Unfortunately, this means that your lashes may fall out faster than usual, resulting in lashes not lasting as long and also the need for a shorter time between your infills.
Don’t worry though, this will only last for one or two lash cycles and you will be back to normal before you know it!
What to expect-
Rapid loss of lashes
Large gaps in lash line
Less than full looking infills
Earlier scheduled infills
Lots of short anagens growing through
What can you do as a client?
What can we do?
schedule your infill sooner, lighten your lash weight and promise this shed wont last long :)
Are you caring for your skin the right way? It can be easy to fall into bad habits with skincare – here are a few classic skincare mistakes to avoid!
You knew this was coming… there’s never a good reason to skip sun protection. You might not be able to see the harmful effects now, but trust us you will one day! Start protecting your skin to prevent premature ageing, hyperpigmentation, and more serious issues down the line.
Sweating under skincare
You might never have thought about this, but if you apply a heavy cream to your skin and then go to the gym or off for a run, sweat may get trapped underneath it in your pores, instead of evaporating. This can cause pore blockages, leading to spots. Before you workout, apply a very light, oil free product instead, so that your skin can breathe.
We all love to exfoliate – the feeling of freshly scrubbed skin can be addictive! But just remember that over-exfoliating can cause more harm than good. Limit yourself to twice a week, with a gentle, effective scrub formulated for your skin type (unless using Daily Microfoliant). Using a scrub more often than that won’t cure your skin issues; in fact it might make them worse.
Sleeping in makeup
This is one of the worst things you can do to your skin. Whether you’re getting in from a night out and just want to collapse into bed, or you’re working late and want to fall asleep on the sofa, don’t do it! Your skin needs to be clean for its overnight renewal processes to take place properly, and leaving makeup in your pores for that long is a recipe for disaster. Remove every trace of makeup before bed, every night. Your pillowcases will thank you, too!
Last-minute pre-wedding treatments
There are many reasons you might want to get a last-minute treatment before a wedding. We can offer treatment options that don’t require a big commitment, and many of our treatments provide results straight away!
Planning a wedding is stressful for everyone involved, but the most stress definitely falls on the bride. Stress breakouts are all too common for brides-to-be, and Microdermabrasion is the perfect, fast acting, gentle but effective way to help sort out those spots. An added bonus is that Microdermabrasion is a really relaxing treatment, so it gives you a chance to sit back and be calm before the big day.
Mother of the Bride (or Groom)
Next to the bride, we think the mums are probably the people who take the wedding most seriously. You want to look your absolute best as you greet friends and family members you may not have seen for years! And you might be worried about how much your skin has changed since you last saw all of these people. Microdermabrasion can give you peace of mind, providing a youthful, fresh complexion that will make your third cousin or great aunt wonder what your secret is.
The last place a man wants to end up with stubble rash is his wedding. Not only will all eyes be on him, but he’s also going to be in a lot of photos and he isn’t going to want red bumps all over his face! Microdermabrasion can help to prevent this by removing the layers of dead skin that trap new hairs and cause redness, irritation and itching on the face and neck. Instead, his skin will look fresh, soft and clean-shaven; perfect for that first kiss!
Everyone wants to look good at a wedding, whether it’s because they’ll be seeing people they haven’t seen in ages, or because they won’t know very many people at all and want to make a good impression. SkinBase Microdermabrasion can give you a fantastic confidence boost, removing signs of ageing, pigmentation and sun damage.
This is one that can appeal to almost any wedding guest. Microdermabrasion mani/pedis are an amazing way to try the wonders of Microdermabrasion, without having to commit to a course of facials. It’s a great way to make a pre-wedding beauty treatment that little bit more special.
Wedding Season Beauty Advice
• Facial Massage – A facial massage helps to restore radiance and give the skin a healthy glow. Gently massaging the skin with clean fingertips the morning of the wedding will leave your skin looking fresh and awake.
• Eliminate dark circles – Tired looking eyes can leave wedding guests wondering if you’re stressed or under pressure. Even if that’s true, you don’t want them to know! To reduce dark circles, drink plenty of water the week leading up to the wedding, gently pat your eye cream into your skin with your ring fingers each night, and go to bed early the night before the wedding.
• Luxurious locks – If you dye or heat-style your hair, find a deeply nourishing hair mask, much richer than the ones you’d usually choose, and use it about a week and a half before the wedding. This will nourish and repair your hair without having to turn to an expensive salon treatment. Even if your hair gets greasy to begin with, by the time of the wedding it will just be soft, smooth and healthy!

We are so excited to announce that we will be offering Microdermabrasion from June 2018! Our training is booked and our fab new machine will soon be on its way to us. Keep your eyes peeled for more information about this treatment coming very soon, along with a very exciting competition!
The SkinBase microdermabrasion machine uses a jet of ultra-fine aluminium oxide crystals to exfoliate the skin. The crystal works as an intense yet gentle abrasive to remove dead skin cells. Vacuum action hygienically removes these dead cells while stimulating blood flow to the area. This combination action stimulates the production of collagen and elastin resulting in firmer, more youthful looking skin.
