THE TOP FIVE THINGS YOUR BEAUTY WILL BENEFIT FROM DURING SELF ISOLATION

Well, isn’t this an odd moment in time? With the COVID19 pandemic facing us all, it has left us having to close our doors temporarily to ensure complete safety for you, our gorgeous clients, our community and to also comply with the Australian Government requirements during this time. 

While we are very much looking forward to the day in the near future when we can open our doors for you to come back in and we can spoil you and your skin, we thought in the meantime we’d share our Top Five Things Your Beauty Will Benefit From During Self-Isolation

ALLOWING YOUR SKIN TO NORMALISE & BREATHE

That’s right, make-up free days are here to stay! While we know if you’re going to be putting makeup on you’re likely to go without favourite mineral makeup by Jane Iredale, it’s no secret that your skin will thank you for skipping the makeup all together and letting it breathe. You see, when we wear makeup, it create a barrier on the skin that stops it from breathing as it would without that barrier. Depending on how you remove your makeup, it’s likely that your skin doesn’t have a strong change to breathe if you aren’t using the right cleanser, with a built in exfoliant ingredient, or exfoliating regularly. 

To ensure your skin benefits the most during this time in self isolation, be sure to stock up on your Bella’s recommended cleanser and exfoliators to see your skin smile; hydrated, breathable skin is happy skin, and by incorporating the right cleanser into your routine you’ll see any skin issues disappear. 

BROWS: YOUR DREAM SHAPE AWAITS

Always chasing that #browgoal yet couldn’t bear to see a stray eyebrow hair? Well, now’s the time to let it all grow out! 

Maximise on this time to ensure your first appointment back at Bella’s with our Brow Specialist see you walking out with your dream brow. By allowing the hairs to grow out, your Brow Specialist will have a lot more of a natural shape to work with. 

BODY: TIME TO BRING IT INTO YOUR SKINCARE REGIME

While anti-aging is on the top of everyone’s skin to-do’s list, it’s very common that the body is forgotten in the race against time and ageing. Of course, your face is a lot more visible, yet the tell-tale signs of an aged hand or neck on someone with a flawless face isn’t ideal.  In salon, we do offer multiple body treatment to fight the signs of ageing, but when you’re in the confines of your home, the next best option is to focus on your body brushing and hydration. Together, these two at-home treatments will see your skin detoxify and tone, as well as plump out any fine lines, wrinkles and break down pigmentation and aged spots when the right moisturiser is chosen. If you’re tight on time for your skin routine, focus on your hands, neck and décolletage. 

HYDRATION: WINTER IS COMING

On top of the already drying hand sanitisation routines we’re experiencing, we also have winter right around the calendar corner! To combat any dry and dehydrated skin, anywhere on the body, it’s important to ensure that your moisturisers are hitting the right spot within the skin’s cellar matrix. This means that you may have to start incorporating a hydrating serum into your regime, such as Medik8’s Hydra B5. Light weight, and packed full of hyaluronic acid, this serum dissolves into the skin where it’s needed most, without leaving a sticky residue on the surface of the skin, and creates a reservoir system to keep skin’s functional factors normalised. 

MAKEUP: YOUR TIME TO SHINE

We’re already celebrating that the need for makeup is minimal now that we’re in self-isolation. So why not ensure that when you do have to apply your makeup next, it glides on flawlessly…without having to buy new products. How? Give your brushes a good, deep clean. By using your cleanser, you can give your brushes a really nice cleanse and let them air dry. 

While you’re at it, have a peak through your makeup cupboard and bag to see what is outdated, which colours you don’t wear anymore and what needs to be replaced. We do offer a thorough makeup matching service to our clients, so when we can open our doors again, we encourage you to come in and see what you can maximise on within your makeup routine, while minimising the amount of products you actually need to achieve your desired makeup finish.
