CARTER BEAUTY – MAKEUP APPLICATION
Carter Beauty’s make-up artist Caroline advises, “Getting the right primer and foundation to suit your skin is essential in the ever-changing weather to achieve a glowing fresh complexion for spring. In the mornings, if you don’t have time to do full makeup application because you’re rushing to work ‘frame your face’ by enhancing your brows, lashes and lips.”

AVIARY BEAUTY – SKINCARE
SUMMER READY SKIN.
Aim for at least 2 liters of water daily. Opt for a gentle cleanser to use daily. Avoid over stimulating skin, this can lead to breakouts and irritation. Ensure you wear an SPF daily to prevent premature ageing. Apply a serum or oil under your moisturiser at night to ensure smoother, plumper skin. When applying eye cream, a pea sized amount in a ‘C’ shape starting at your brow bone around the eye and under the lash line, don’t bring product too close to the eye or it will cause puffy /irritated eyes.

ALLURE BEAUTY – WAXING
Pre wax exfoliation should be done 24- 48 hours. Brushing every day in circular motions towards the heart prevents ingrown hairs and keeps skin soft.
Avoid tight fitting clothes as you can get ingrown hairs. Avoid sunbed use and sauna treatments for up to 48 hours after your waxing treatments. Never get waxed the day before you go to the sun. Never leave the hairs too long before getting waxed. Pre book your waxing services a few months before holidays to avoid shaving while away.

AMIA BEAUTY – BODY SCRUB
In Amia Beauty one of our most important beauty tips for glowing healthy skin would be to always exfoliate and hydrate your skin. We offer the Moroccan Hamman body scrub. Our Moroccan Hamman is our top skin healing therapy. Moroccan black soap is known as the hero product of the Hamman ritual. Exfoliation is carried out with our Kassa gloves. This removes dead skin and bacteria, opening pores to stimulate the lymph and circulatory systems. So body exfoliation would be one of the most important body tips we in Amia Beauty can recommend.
