TRI BEAUTY AFTERCARE ADVICE
Massage is an aid to the body’s natural mechanisms to release stresses, which have built up over a period of time. In order to gain maximum benefit from your massage treatment, it is advisable as part of your aftercare routine, that you follow the steps over the next 12 hours:
• Drink plenty of water and herbal infusions to help flush out toxins; massage aids the removal of toxins from the body. Aim to drink two glasses of water after each drink of tea or coffee.
• Don't drink alcohol or smoke for the next 24 hours; massage aims to detoxify the body -alcohol and smoking are counter-productive as they increase the levels of toxins within the body.
• Avoid heavy meals
• Do not shower or bathe directly after a treatment for at least 6 - 8 hours. The essential oils used, need to penetrate the skin in order to be absorbed into the system to achieve optimum results. Also avoid sauna & steam rooms
• Avoid direct exposure to strong sunlight, and do not use sun beds following the use of any oils.
• Be aware of your posture.
• Rest as much as possible in order to assist the healing process.
• You may experience a feeling of tiredness or fatigue following massage. In some cases, headaches may follow.
• You may feel emotional. It’s quite natural to feel tearful.
• Increased urination or flu-like symptoms (runny nose, coughing) may be experienced, but these will be temporary as the body re-balances itself. FACIALS Please note, however, the advice is not a substitute for the advice of a medical professional, but merely guidance to help you get the best from your treatment(s). If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
• Avoid wearing make-up for at least 6 hours after a facial treatment
• Always cleanse, tone and moisturise your face; to prevent loss of moisture, protect the skin from make-up and to keep the skin soft and supple
• Always remove all traces of make-up at the end of the day
• Drink plenty of water (recommended 6-8 glasses per day)
• Do not undertake any other facial skincare treatments within 48 hours of facial
• Avoid sun-bathing for up to 12 hours
• Avoid direct heat (intense sunlight & sunbeds) and indirect heat (sauna, hot bath, shower) for 48 hours after treatment
• Do not apply perfume or perfumed products to the treated area within 48 hours
• Do not apply any other exfoliating skincare products for 72 hours after facial.
A patch test is required at least 24 hours before your 1st tinting appointment. After an eyebrow or eyelash tint, please follow the aftercare advice below to ensure there is no irritation, and that your tint lasts as long as possible;
• Do not touch the area treated directly after treatment (Although care will be taken to remove all product from the brows, a little residue may remain)
• Do not rub the area treated
• Avoid heat treatments for 24 hours
• Do not apply brow make-up/mascara for at least 24 hours after your treatment
• Avoid sunbathing for 24 hours, as this can cause the tint to fade
• Avoid swimming/saunas for at least 24 hours after your treatment
• Avoid perfumed products for at least 24 hours after your treatment
• Please note that oil based make up remover can cause the tint to fade quicker
• Exposure to the sun/UV lights for long periods can cause the tint to fade quicker
Please note: The effects of a tint will start to diminish within 2-4 weeks (this depends on the growth rate of the brow hair); An appointment to re-do the tint would be advisable after 2-4 weeks if you wish to maintain your look. If any irritation or swelling occurs, apply a cold compress and contact me for advice. Seek medical advice if any irritation or swelling persists.
Please note: some slight soreness, small bumps and redness are common and perfectly normal temporary reactions, particularly if this is your first wax. These symptoms should subside over the next 24 - 48 hours. If you experience persistent redness or irritation, or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Keep the waxed area clean, and avoid heat and friction during the next 24 - 48 hours. This means:
No hot baths or showers (cool to lukewarm water only).
No saunas, hot tubs, massage or steam treatments.
No tanning (sunbathing, sun beds or fake tans).
No sport, gym work or other exercise.
Avoid scratching or touching the treated area with unwashed hands.
Wear clean, loose fitting clothes.
Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools.
Do not apply deodorants, body sprays, powders, lotions or other products to the area, other than those recommended by your therapist.
Always wash your hands before applying any product.
To prevent ingrown hairs: starting a few days after your appointment and then continuing a couple of times every week, exfoliate the areas you get waxed using a dry brush or exfoliating mitt. Take the brush and just before you step into the bath or shower gently brush the area you get waxed whilst your skin and the brush is dry. Moisturise every day to keep the skin supple and help new hairs to grow through normally. Don’t exfoliate too much or too rough as this can graze the skin and cause ingrown hairs. You may notice a small amount of re growth after a week or so. It can take up to 4 treatments for your hair to get on a growth cycle that gives best results.
You will need at least 3-4 weeks growth of hair before it can be successfully removed by waxing; Please do not shave between your appointments.
To maintain your smooth appearance, we recommend regular waxing every 4-6 weeks
