RULE 1: Start by pinning back the top pieces so that the lower sections are more accessible. Underneath the ear and behind the temple is a good starting point when curling.
RULE 2: When using a Steampod steam styler on your client’s hair, make sure to keep the arrows on the tool always pointing towards the ends of the clients hair when you’re styling.
RULE 3: Before styling you can apply heat protection using Steampod Milk for fine to normal hair types or Smoothing Cream for thick hair types. Once this is applied to your client’s hair, fully blowdry before using Steampod 3.0 to style.
RULE 4: The Steampod Serum can be used on the lengths and ends to give your client’s hairstyle a shiny-looking finish, without weighing their hair down.
Effect of Hand Sanitising Gels on Your Skin
“Will using hand sanitisers ruin my skin?” – that is the question we all asked ourselves at least once since COVID-19 became a serious issue. Today we will try to answer this question. What is the best way to protect yourself against coronavirus while keeping your skin healthy?
Sara Waterman, who is an aesthetician, believes that over time excessively washing hands and using hand sanitisers will deplete the skin’s natural protective barrier. This can then leave hands feeling dry and sore. However, Sara also thinks in times when the excessive risk of infection is present, dry chapped hands are a “better” choice.
The main thing all skin experts agree on is that after washing your hands, whether it be with hand sanitiser or with soap water – it is important to keep skin moisturised. Try switching to a nourishing hand cleansing gel that contains shea butter and is gentler to your skin. NEQI hand cleansing gels will not only kill the bacteria but also protect your hands from becoming overly dry and chapped. It contains 60% alcohol which allows it to kill 99.9% of bacteria. And thanks to the aloe vera and shea butter it take cares of your skin too. It’s also Vegan!
So, hand sanitisers will not ruin your skin if used properly. NHS states that “while excessive use of hand sanitisers could lead to some drying effects, it is unlikely to negatively impact most people using the gels as a temporary antiseptic”. It is important to use antibacterial gels where water and soap are not available – a handbag option is a must!
