COVID-19 And Your Appointment

I have put in place a number of measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. I have also completed 2 COVID-19 Hygiene and Safety courses and put in place additional precautions beyond the necessary guidelines. Please follow all the rules in place to ensure my home, salon, you and me stay as safe as possible.

Here you will find further details on what I have in place so you can attend your appointment with the knowledge that I’m doing everything I can to keep you safe. If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to ask. I appreciate its a lot of information so please feel free to just read the parts in pink and if you’d like further information you can read the sections underneath in grey. 

Please don’t attend your appointment if: 

  • You feel unwell in anyway.

If you feel unwell or have C-19 symptoms please reschedule your appointment immediately. If you have symptoms or are ill I cannot offer you an appointment until your 2 week isolation period is over and you are clear of all symptoms. If you’re not sure the best thing to do is cancel and get tested. 

  • You have come into close contact with anyone with COVID-19 symptoms.

If anyone in your household has symptoms or feels unwell or if you have been in close contact with anybody else that has symptoms/tested positive please reschedule your appointment for 14 days later.

  • You have recently been abroad.

If you have been anywhere abroad please wait until you have been home and symptom free for 2 weeks before attending an appointment with me. This relates to all countries. 

  • You have been advised to self isolate. 

If you have been contacted by track and trace or advised by government to self isolate please reschedule your appointment for after your isolation period is over. 

Arriving to your appointment

  • Make sure you have completed your COVID-19 health check form.

Please ensure you have completed and sent back your COVID-19 form, this will have been sent to you online to complete, this is to minimise the contact of paperwork. If you haven’t provided me with your email address you will need to remember to bring the paper copy given to you with you to every appointment and text me if you answer yes to any of the questions before arriving (you will still need to bring the paper form so I have a signed copy for my records). I need this form completed before every appointment as any changes that relate to COVID-19 can have adverse effects on your treatment. If you contract COVID-19 you will need a new patch test. 

  • Arrive at your exact appointment time.

Please DO NOT arrive to your appointment early. I have left enough time between each client to ensure no clients bump into each other and to thoroughly clean every area between each client. So please wait in your car until your appointment time and before ringing the bell as I can’t let you in until I have finished cleaning. If you are late to your appointment, the time you are late by will be deducted from your treatment, depending on what treatment you’re having your appointment may need to be cancelled (full charges will still apply).

  • Arrive wearing a clean mask.

You MUST bring and wear a clean mask to your appointment. Please put your mask on before I answer the door. If you forget your mask I may have one you can purchase for £1.00. Stock is very limited so please try to remember to bring your own. If I don’t have one spare I won’t be able to carry out your treatment. You must keep your mask on at all times until you leave the premises. 

  • Arrive with your hair tied back. 

If your treatment requires you to lie down please (if your hair is long enough) tie your hair into a low ponytail (secured at the base of your neck) that will be comfortable to lie down with. This is to keep hygiene levels at their highest and to stop me touching your hair to move it out the way. I do have hair bobbles available for £0.10 to cover the cost of the hair band. Alternatively you will need to twist and tuck your hair into your t-shirt. 

  • Arrive with an empty bladder.

I am restricting use of facilities so please ensure you use the toilet before you arrive for your appointment. If you are desperate you can use it however please be mindful that it is a family used bathroom. I also won’t be offering drinks at this time so please bring your own, in a bottle, if you’d like to. 

  • Arrive on your own.

You must not bring anybody else with you to your appointment. I am only allowed one person in my house at a time. This includes people that are part of your household. They won’t be allowed into the premises under any circumstance. If you usually attend your appointment with someone else you will now need to book separate appointments. 

On Arrival:

  • Your temperature will be checked. 

This is to ensure you don’t have a high temperature. If you do have a high temperature (38 degrees or higher) then unfortunately I won’t be able to carry out your treatment. I will also check my temperature throughout the day and if my temperature is high I will cancel your appointment. 

  • Wash or anti bac your hands. 

On entering please either wash your hands in the kitchen sink or use the anti bacterial gel available. You are welcome to wash your hands on leaving too. I will wash my hands before and after every treatment and use anti bac throughout your treatment too. After you have washed your hands please go straight into the salon room. 

  • Maintain social distancing.

Sorry no hugs or kisses.

After your treatment

  • Pay by cash or card.

Card is preferred, however you can still pay by cash but please ensure to have the exact amount available so I don’t need to give you change. 

  • Contact me if you become unwell.

You must contact me immediately if you have any symptoms within 14 days of seeing me. If you test positive you must tell me and ‘track and trace’. This is so I can self isolate and get tested and minimise spending C-19 to other clients. 

Me and the Salon

  • If me or anyone I have been in close contact with has symptoms I will cancel your appointment immediately and self isolate for 2 weeks and/or get tested. I will also let you and ‘track and trace’ know if I have been in contact with you.
  • All soft furnishings have been removed from my salon and replaced with plastic covers which can be thoroughly cleaned and sterilised before and after every client. All areas and tools that are used are fully sanitised then sterilised between every use. The salon will be deep cleaned at the end of every day.
  • I will be wearing a clean disposable mask and apron, and a visor for every appointment. My hair will be tied back and I will wear clean uniform every day. My hands will be washed before and after every treatment and anti bacterial gel will be used throughout your appointment.

Whilst I will do everything in my power to keep you safe, the salon and me exceptionally clean and hygienic there is still a high risk of transmission this is because I cannot maintain social distancing whilst preforming treatments and I will be in extremely close contact with several people a day. Please think about this carefully before booking or attending an appointment, especially if you or someone in your household is considered vulnerable.

Dry Body Brushing: Why you should start today!

How many of you body brush daily already? Many of you will spend time focusing on cleansing, exfoliating and motorising your face but when was the last time you tended to the skin of the rest of your body? With all the different skin care hypes out there, dry body brushing is often over looked however body brushing is one of the quickest, easiest, most beneficial and cheapest ways to maintain healthy skin and a healthy body!

Our skin is the largest organ of our bodies and is responsible for a quarter of the bodies detoxification, eliminating over one pound of waste acids through sweat glads everyday. Our skin receives a third of all the blood circulated in the body but it is the last to receive nutrients in the body, it is however the first to show signs of imbalance or deficiency. With all our skin does for us we really should be paying more attention to the whole of our skin and heres several reasons why body brushing can help and why you should start immediately!

The Benefits:

  • EXFOLIATION AND SKIN RENEWAL: Dry body brushing helps remove dead skin cells as well as encouraging new cell renewal. This results in smoother and brighter looking skin. Its also fab with helping eliminate those annoying ingrown hairs!
  • INCREASES CIRCULATION: Dry body brushing increases blood circulation to skin, encouraging your body’s discharge of metabolic wastes, which greatly aids the lymphatic drainage of the entire body. When the body rids itself of toxins, it is able to run more efficiently in all areas.
  • REDUCES CELLULITE: Cellulite is toxic material accumulated in your body’s fat cells. Dry body brushing may help to soften hard fat deposits below the skin while distributing fat deposits more evenly. This may help to diminish the appearance of cellulite. Dry brushing is also said to help reduce cellulite by removing toxins that may break down connective tissue. Its also good for muscle tone and tightening the skin!
  • ABSORB MORE NUTRIENTS: Dry body brushing helps your skin to absorb more nutrients by eliminating clogged pores and improving circulation.
  • ENERGISING: Those of you who sit at a computer screen all day long will particularly benefit from dry body brushing. People who have inactive lifestyles or jobs usually experience stiff and sore necks and shoulders that reach even into their arms and down their spines and into their lower backs. Increased blood flow begins entering the areas brushed and you will experience an increase in electromagnetic energy that permits you to feel energised and invigorated.
  • STRESS RELIEF: Dry body brushing has been described as mediative and can reduce muscle tension , calm your mind and relive stress. It has been compared to a light full body massage.
  • STIMULATING LYMPH: The Lymphatic system is the system responsible for eliminating cellular waste products. When your lymphatic system is not working properly, waste and toxins can guid up and make you poorly. By stimulating your lymphatic system and helping it to release toxins, dry body brushing is a powerful detoxification aid.

 How do I do this at home? 

All you need to do is purchase a natural bristle brush (not one made from nylon or synthetic materials). One with a long handle that has a removable head with a strap for your hand is also a plus, as it means you can reach all areas of the body.

The directions are pretty simple:

Start on dry skin before bathing its best to do it in the morning as many people find body brushing energising so gets you started for the day ahead.

When brushing, always brush toward your heart, which is best for circulation and your lymphatic system. You can brush your entire body (including the soles of your feet). Start at your feet and work your way up your legs to your arms, chest, back, and stomach. Avoid brushing your face (unless you have a special brush designed for this delicate skin), your genitals, or any areas with irritations, abrasions, sunburn, Varicose veins etc. if you are unsure whether Body brushing is suitable for you please check with your GP.

The pressure you apply while brushing your skin should be firm but not painful (avoid “scrubbing”). Your skin can be slightly pink after a session (not red or irritated) and you can brush for as long (or as little) as you’d like. An average dry brushing session may last between two and 20 minutes. once you are happy that you have thoroughly brushed shower or bath away all the dead skin cells and impurities. After getting out of the shower, dry off vigorously and massage your skin with pure plant oil, such as almond, jojoba, sesame or coconut. Personally I love coconut oil!

Don’t forget to wash you brush thoroughly after use!

I’d love to hear your feedback of how your getting on with body brushing. It may take a few weeks to notice the benefits so don’t give up if you don’t notice an immediate difference!
