summer skin

27 July, 2016 | In: Beauty

We've all been there – meticulously planning our holiday outfits, booking months of personal training sessions and frantically working through endless to-do lists on our desk in preparation for a getaway. It's no wonder that when the final week rolls around we panic that perhaps our beauty maintenance isn't quite as beach-ready as other people’s. Investing in a top-to-toe treatment plan will not only highlight your client’s physique but it will prepare their skin for sun, sea and sand, leaving them with an even, glowing complexion. With a few emergency salon appointments at the ready, they can jet off with smooth, toned complexion ready to bare.

Help start your client’s season with golden limbs and a flawless complexion with these must-book beauty treatments:

Let's face it, living in the UK forces our limbs into hibernation for the majority of the year so when it comes to sun searching, our skin may not be in tip top condition. A full body exfoliation not only sloughs away dead skin cells-it will also unveil the perfect base for an even tan and boost circulation for a glowing appearance.

Balmy temperatures and salt water are generally not ideal conditions for make-up so why not offer a more semi-permanent solution without a mascara brush in sight? Lash tinting and perming is the perfect way to give peepers the appearance of mascara without having to worry about it running or reapplying. You can also go one further by highlighting the benefits of brow tinting to give them the entire eye package.

There's nothing more annoying than spotting a chip in your perfectly manicured nails half way through the holiday. Luckily, your clients can now keep their talons salon-perfect for weeks with a gel manicure or pedicure. As well as long-lasting glossy colour, it will also protect their nails from holiday wear and tear such as excessive water exposure, suncream, sand and heat, so they will come home with longer and stronger nails.

Thanks to our cooler climes, it's not difficult to spot a pale Brit abroad on the beach – but this doesn't have to be your client. A subtle spray tan treatment is the secret to a toned, golden silhouette before they've even stepped off the plane, giving them the confidence to hit the beach without a second thought. They can even opt for a contouring tan to highlight their hard work in the gym or give them the illusion of a sculpted physique.

We may reach for the razor in hair removal emergencies but the beauty (no pun intended) of a pre-planned holiday is having the ability to plan in advance. For results that last the duration of their holiday, advise your client on the benefits of leg, bikini and underarm waxing to ensure their summer is fuzz and fuss-free.

There's no mistaking the rested glow of someone that's just touched down from a summer getaway, but why not start the holiday the same way? A clarifying facial is a great way to rid the skin of any dry skin and impurities whilst giving it a dose of hydration, allowing them to tan evenly and maintain that healthy glow.
