HOW TO REMOVE GEL NAILS

Now is the ideal time to remove any gel and give your nails some DIY attention. Follow our very simple steps below to remove your gel without damage.

The main essentials that you will need are; cotton wool discs x 5, aluminium foil, a nail file and nail polish remover (with acetone is ideal).

There is also an OPI video tutorial here…

THE BASIC STEPS

Firstly, wash your hands for over 20 seconds.

Buff the the top coat gently with a file (once the shiny part is removed there is no need for more filling).

Soak a piece of the cotton pad in the removal agent and place it over the nail.

Wrap the nail in foil.

Leave for 15 minutes or until the gel is lifting completely away from the nail. This may be longer than usual depending on what removal agent you are using. Please do not be tempted to scrape the gel off. 

File and shape the nails.

Wash your hands again before applying hand cream – our hands will all be incredibly dry at the moment!

OPTION

You may have some OPI Nail Envy at home, this is a nail strengthener with a touch of colour. If you have Nail Envy to hand then paint two coats and add an extra coat every other day.

Cuticle Oil can also be added at the end, if you are painting your nails then hand cream should be the final stage

SPA TIPS: SKIN BRUSHING

WHY DO IT?

The largest organ of your body, skin is often neglected. Dull, dry and dehydrated, covered up all winter and exposed to the sun all summer – under loved, your skin is constantly pushed to the limit.

Exfoliating with a body brush will improve your waxing results and reduce ingrown hairs. Giving skin a daily brush will also significantly improve tone, helping to banish cellulite and boost cell renewal for smoother, softer, more radiant skin.

With countless health benefits, body brushing is a fast and effective way to exfoliate – helping your skin absorb product faster, increase circulation, improve the appearance of cellulite, assist lymphatic drainage, improve muscle tone and stimulate the nervous system.

A fantastic gentle and therapeutic way to start your day, follow our body brushing ritual to detoxify, tone and firm your skin.

A DAILY RITUAL

Encourage lymph drainage by using a firm dry brush on skin every morning before showering or bathing. Ensure each sweep is made several times, working towards your heart. Enrich the ritual by following each sweep of the brush with a gentle stroke from your free hand.

HOW TO BRUSH LEGS

Starting at one of your feet, brush the lower leg in upward movements towards the knee, working from the inside of the leg to the outside, then the back of the leg.

Using the same method, work around the kneecap stroking up the thigh from the inside to the outside. Move around the back of the leg and up and over your bottom, then repeat for the other leg.

STOMACH AND BACK

For your stomach, brush down from the side of your waist, across to the centre of your lower stomach several times – then repeat on the other side.

Moving to your back, brush up the back from your bottom towards your shoulders as far as you can comfortably reach. Repeat for the other side.

The benefits of this ritual will be lost with too much pressure, so make each stroke is light and take care not to drag, irritate or redden the skin.

ESPA SKIN BRUSH

With natural bristles from Mexican cactus plants swiftly stimulating circulation and eliminating toxins, this ESPA Skin Brush would a good addition to your daily routine.

Priced £20, available at Ashbourne, Belper, The Old Hall and David Lloyd salons.

Reflexology

SHARE
 

We are now holding Reflexology clinics at both our Ashbourne and Belper salons.

Reflexology has been around for thousands of years. Ancient Chinese used it to maintain good health and prevent disease, and is incorporated in traditional Chinese medicine still.  Eunice Ingham, who is considered the mother of modern reflexology, with the help of Doreen Bailey introduced it to the UK in the 1970’s in the form of modern reflexology that we know and love today.

What is reflexology?

Reflexology is a gentle complimentary therapy where the body and organs are mirrored on the feet and hands in what we call reflexes.  We apply specific direct gentle pressure to these reflexes to aid the body in its natural healing ability, to help bring about balance, release toxins and remove any imbalances in the body.  There are many theories to how reflexology works, most people find it beneficial to their general well-being, for relieving stress/tension and aiding relaxation.

A consultation is an important part of reflexology.  It enables the therapist to tailor the treatment to your individual needs, to make sure there is no reason why reflexology cannot be undertaken and to assess what you need, expect or want from the treatment. There can be some side effects to reflexology as your body is releasing the toxins and bringing about balance, you may experience headaches, you may want the toilet more, you may get worse before you get better and you may have problems sleeping.  These can be quite normal and should pass quite quickly.

Please phone 01332 974959 to book an appointment for either Ashbourne or Belper salon

we are holding a clinic at our Ashbourne Salon on the last Tuesday of every month

Treatment time is 1 hour and is priced at £45
