  • Moisturise daily, pay particular attention to knees, elbows, ankles  and any dry areas

  • Wax/shave at least 24 hours prior to treatment.

 

On the day

  • Remove ALL makeup, cosmetics and jewellery before arriving. Please have your hair tied back. 

  • DO NOT use any oily products on your skin (including moisturiser) and keep any deodorant/perfume usage to a minimum or not at all if possible

  • During the application wear as little clothing (old if possible) – an old bikini or underwear will do.
    Disposable hair cap, feet protectors and a gown are provided 

  • Once your tan is applied, wear loose dark clothing and flip flops/loose shoes with no socks if possible 

  • Do not shower immediately before the tan (even if you are a little sweaty), as PH levels in soaps can alter the effectiveness of the tan by stopping the skin’s ability to absorb the solution fully

  • If you smudge the solution before rinsing, do not try to fix it; it should blend together when you rinse it off.

Post treatment 

  • Do not shower or bathe for a minimum of 8 hours after your treatment, better overnight if possible. However if it's an express tanning solution it can be washed off 2-3hours afterwards

  • Try to avoid washing your hands for as long as possible in the development time (a minimum of 2 hours.) Try a hand sanitiser or wipes instead

  • Do not participate in any activity which may cause perspiration for at least 12 hours after the treatment

  • The guide colour can be left on overnight although it may transfer onto bed linen. It will wash out of cotton, but not so easily from man-made fibres or wool. Dark linen is advised

  • For your first shower let the water wash your tan, you will see colour washing off , this is normal. Let the tan completely finish washing off until you use mild shower gel (not a bar of soap) to prolonged tan

  • After showering pat the skin dry rather than rubbing.

Keep your Tan Looking Gorgeous for Longer

  • Apply moisturiser 1-2x daily

  • Avoid swimming pools as chlorine can bleach the tan.  Also, keep in mind that salt water may dry your skin and cause your sunless tan to fade faster

  • Remember to continue using SPF when exposing your skin to the sun

  • Use only new shavers to lightly shave the skin 

  • Avoid spraying perfumes/body sprays directly onto the tanned area of skin

  • Avoid makeup removers

  • Avoid products containing mineral oil, sulphates to prolong your tan 

  • Once tan starts to fade, start exfoliating to ensure an even removal of tan. Continue to moisturise the the skin this will help with the removal of the tan.

Facials 

Preparation for Facial

  • It would be ideal if you can remove your make-up before arriving, especially if you wear it quite heavy. Or at least wear a light make-up application. The beauty therapist can remove your makeup, but this will take 5 minutes off your facial time

  • Let your beauty therapist know if you’d like to leave your mascara on. Some clients prefer this, as they feel naked without any mascara on, especially if they have some errands to run after

  • Do not come with freshly washed and blow-dried hair 

  • Preferably after the facial, take it easy the rest of the day if possible. A facial is a relaxing treatment, and it would be nice to extend this relaxing time for the rest of your day.

Post treatment
• Drink plenty of water
• Keep make-up to a minimum for 12 hours, preferably no makeup if possible 
• Do not use any perfumed products or expose yourself to direct sunlight / saunas / sunbeds for 48 hours
• Do not undertake further skincare treatments for 48 hours or use any exfoliating products for 72 hours
• Avoid alcohol or smoking to keep your complexion clear and healthy.

Maintaining your Results
• Increase your water intake to 8 glasses a day
• Decrease alcohol and smoking to keep skin healthy
• Use products as advised by your beauty therapist – these should be specific for your skin type, concerns and budget
• Use a sunscreen daily
• For long-term results and as a preventative measure, book in for a facial once every 6 weeks

(the ideal scenario) or once every 3 months (the least).

Eyelash & Eyebrow Tinting 

Post Treatment 

  • Do not rub the treated area

  • Avoid heat treatments for at least 24hrs

  • Avoid sunbathing for up to 24hrs, as this can cause the tint to fade

  • Avoid swimming/saunas and perfumed products for at least 24hrs after treatment

  • Please note that oil based make up remover can cause the tint to fade quicker

  • Exposure to sun/UV lights for long periods can cause the tint to fade quicker

  • Brow tinting results last around 2-4 weeks and lash tinting around 4-6 weeks.

Cluster Lashes & Express Lashes 

To maintain this look and extend the life of your lashes:

  • Do not wash eyes or shower and avoid crying (if possible), sweating and steam for 24hours after lash application

  • Do not swim or spa for 48hours after lash application to allow adequate time for bonding

  • Be gentle with your lashes

  • Avoid rubbing and pulling your eyelashes

  • Avoid oil-based and waterproof mascara. Regular mascara is not recommended for use as it will dissolve the bond with the lashes

  • Avoid any creams, eye makeup removers, lotions, sunscreens or cleansers containing oils on or near eyelashes. Oils can loosen the bond of lash extensions. Care must be taken to apply eye cream sparingly with avoidance of the lash line area

  • Do NOT use an eyelash curler on your extensions

  • Do NOT pull lashes off, have them professionally removed or use an oil based product and/or steam (Run hot water into the sink, cover your head with a towel, hover your face over the water and use the steam from the hot water to moisten the lashes). Please be careful to not pull off your natural lashes in the process!

Classic Lashes & Russian Lashes 

On the day of your appointment:

  • Please wear minimal eye makeup to create more lashing time

  • Please have plenty time for your appointment on the day, it's not a treatment that can be rushed.

Aftercare:

Taking care of your lashes is important, so they stay looking their best for as long as possible. Classic and Russian lashes can last up to 3 weeks (though by this time, most extensions will have fallen with your natural lashes due to your lash cycle).

  • Oil-based products are the enemy - avoid them! Oil breaks down adhesive bonds, meaning your lashes won’t last for as long as they should.  

  • Avoid cotton wool at all costs. You don’t want the fluff to get caught up in your lashes

  • Don’t panic if a few lashes fall in the 24 hours after your treatment - this is completely normal while the adhesive is drying. Just take extra care of your lashes during this time.

  • Recommend you return for an infill appointment every 2 - 3 weeks.

  • If you’d like to remove your extensions at any time, you can pop back (please book). Removal is super easy and will take no time at all. It’s tempting, but picking your lashes off without professional help is what causes natural lash damage - so don’t do this!

Waxing 

Before your appointment:

  • Trim the hair before your appointment. Longer hair can be more painful to wax.

  • Ensure your hair is at least 0.5cm long, so hair can be removed easily and effectively. First time waxers should have hair growth of about 1.5cm.

  • Exfoliate the waxing area 24-48 hours before your appointment. This will keep the skin soft and smoother and prevent ingrown hairs.

  • Bath or shower on the day of your appointment to open up follicles, allowing for easier hair removal.

  • Do not apply any deodorants, make-up, lotions, soaps, powders, perfumes or self-tanning products to the area to be waxed.

  • Take 1-2 paracetamol about 30 minutes before your appointment if you have never had a wax before or find the process painful.

 

 

Post waxing treatment:

You should expect the area to be red, some may experience blood spots due to thicker, courser hair and the area may feel tender and tingle.

For the first 24 hours after a waxing service, avoid the following to prevent irritating the skin:

  • Touching or scratching the waxed area

  • Exfoliating the waxed area

  • Post treatment showering is advised at a cooler temperature. Ensure the water runs off the waxed area and you do not wash or scrub this area

  • Perspiration and friction on the waxed area

  • Sauna’s and stream rooms

  • Exercise, gyms and swimming

  • Sunbathing, sunbeds or any sunlight and UV exposure. Sweat can infect open follicles and heat can irritate the waxed area. Remember to book your wax 2 days before you go on holiday, to allow the follicles enough time to close and the skin to calm down

  • Applying products to the waxed area such as deodorants, make-up, lotions, soaps, powders, perfumes, self-tanning products etc.

  • Tight fitted clothing that may cause friction to the waxed area

 

To soothe and calm the skin, suggest regular application of an Aloe Vera gel. This will rehydrate the skin and sooth any distort you may experience. Tea tree oil can also be applied to the area for its anti-bacterial properties in ensuring the area remains bacteria free.

Remember, it is important to keep the area clean and dry for 48 hours after your appointment

3-10 days after your waxing service, you need to ensure you prevent ingrown hairs. The skin will close over the follicles and new hair may get trapped causing ingrown hairs. Gently exfoliate 2-3 times a week with a body scrub. Start this routine 2-3 days after the waxing treatment. It is essential that you perform this routine between days 3-10 after your wax service. Remember to not over exfoliate as this can cause damage to the skin.

Follow your exfoliation with an enriching and nourishing moisturiser. This process will prevent ingrown hairs and ensure that your next wax is easier and a little less painful.

Swedish & Hot Stone Massage 

Preparation for Massage

  • Exfoliate your whole body prior to your treatment, ensuring products absorb into the skin 

  • Remove all jewellery

  • Leave your worries behind you

  • Arrive 5 minutes before your treatment so that you’ll be completely relaxed before the beginning of the treatment.

  • Put your phone on silent to enjoy your treatment in peace 

Post treatment 

  • Try to relax and take it easy for the rest of the day – if you can and feel the need to, nap.

  • Drink plenty of water for 24 hours after your massage as your lymph nodes, which have been stimulated, are removing toxins from the body. Your urine might be much darker than usual – this is due to the toxins leaving your body.

  • Avoid heat treatments (hot baths / showers, body wraps, saunas, sunbeds) for 24 hours.

  • Avoid alcohol, smoking, caffeine and fizzy drinks as they can dehydrate your body and add more toxins to your body. This would reverse the effects of the massage, since the massage is in-turn aiding the body in removing the accumulation of toxins

  • Avoid eating a heavy and especially spicy meal so your body can focus on natural healing and detoxifying itself
     

Healing Reactions’ may take place after your massage and are completely normal-showing that the massage is working well and your body is responding to the treatment. Indications of this may result in the following:

  • Fatigued or tired (although this could be a sign of deep relaxation, especially if you are usually always on the go)

  • Increased sweating, thirst or urination

  • Irritable or energised

  • Heightened emotions (low or high)

  • Runny, stuffy or blocked nose

  • Sound sleeping and vivid dreams

Maintaining your Results
Massages are recommended often, especially due to the fast-paced and stressful lives that we are living. To maintain the results, you can try the following:

  • Take a warm bath once a week – this will help to loosen up your muscles.

  • Relax and distress – listen to music, burn some essential oils, etc.

  • Find time to exercise (especially strength training) and stretch (yoga is excellent).

  • Exfoliate and moisturize your body regularly.

  • Stand up and walk around and stretch – especially if sitting a long time at a desk and / or on the computer.

  • Throughout the day, massage your shoulders, and other areas that feel stiff

  • Sit in a correct position and you might want to raise your legs a bit.
