Skin Care Mistakes – Are You Making Any Of These?

Are you overcaring for your skin? Taking care of our skin we all do or aim to do. But we have to be careful not to overdo it or do it wrong. Just as in most things in life. Nothing is good for you when you overdo it. Did you know drinking a lot of water is great for the body but drinking too much of even that harmless liquid can make you seriously ill? Ok, back to skin care and what you should NOT do about it.   Over exfoliating your skin Exfoliating your skin so that the dead cells come off gives you great, healthy and glowing skin. But if you overdo it, you risk removing more than that, which is your skin’s protective barrier and also its natural oils. This exposes your skin to damage caused by the sun, toxins in the environment and much more. So do not exfoliate your skin more than twice a week, that too gently.   Using the wrong cleanser Removing your make up at the end of the day is the right thing to do. But only when you are using the right cleanser for the job. When choosing a cleanser make sure it has natural ingredients that contain salicylic acid to keep your pores clean, antioxidants for overall protection and witch hazel that acts as an astringent. Using the wrong cleanser will not help your skin heal and will in fact make it harsh from too many unnecessary chemicals.   Not wearing sunscreen everyday Sunscreen, contrary to popular belief, is not just meant for a day on the sands or a day out on the roads. The sun slowly and steadily damages your skin even when you step out onto the balcony from your room. Make it a habit to use it every day no matter what your plans for the day are. Do not use it just on your face. Use it on whichever part is exposed, like your neck, your arms and so on.   Sleeping on cotton pillow cases The constant rubbing of your skin on cotton at night breaks down its collagen and may cause permanent ugly lines over time. Try using silk pillow covers. These will not only keep your pillows cool, but also save your skin from the damaging friction.   Picking at your pimples We have all been told not to do this when in our teens but we have done it any way, and most of us have regretted it later on when those scars have stayed for life. Add to this the immediate problems that arise from touching your face...

12 Make Up Must Haves!

Whether you are starting or restarting, morning or evening Either this is going to be your first make up bag or you want to, yet again, organize your eternally overflowing make up bag full of things you either never used or don’t remember what you bought it for. Either ways this article is a great checklist so you have enough yet nothing extra. After all you don’t want to carry around a huge bag so that your make up bag fits in it, do you?   The Foundation To start with the basics, in the rough order you will use your make up, let us add to your bag the Foundation. The Foundation gives you a great complexion by evening out your skin tone. Choosing the right Foundation for your skin tone will take some time, but it is totally worth spending time upon as your overall look will depend on this base tone. You would not want a face that looks like it is a different entity from your body, do you? Also, if you have sensitive or acne prone skin, buy a Foundation that can be used on sensitive skin, made preferably from all natural ingredients.   2.The Concealer Where the damage is too deep and the Foundation does not work, there is the life saving Concealer. Give your under eyes a go over with it or any blemishes that stand out too much. Or make that pimple disappear if only for an evening! Yes. You call it Concealer, we call it Damage Control.   The Blush and Bronzer duo After the even toning what your skin needs is life and colour. That is when these siblings come in. A swipe of Blush on your cheeks makes for a healthy glow. Overdoing it never works though. For darker skin tones, a Bronzer gives a more natural look than a Blush, while for those with lighter skin tones, a Bronzer gives you a healthy tanned look. Apply a Bronzer from your forehead to your cheek in a single stroke followed by a small dab on the tip of your nose. A Compact that has both Blush and Bronzer is a space saver.   The Highlighter A Highlighter does a great job of illuminating healthily glowing skin. Apply the Highlighter down the bridge of your nose, followed by your cheekbones, then the inner corners of your eyes, above your brows, and a bit on the indent above your upper lip. Dab on a bit on the centre of your chin and forehead.   The Eyeshadow palette Instead of going berserk looking for the right eyeshadow from the clutter of...

Enrich Salons partners with Symbiosis Skills & Open University

Bringing beauty to the fingertips of the beautician Every body looks for a good salon to go to for some kind of beauty treatment or the other. But amongst those, there are very many who also look to work in those very salons and make it their life’s job to make others beautiful. The partnering of these two giants in the Beauty & Wellness Industry is very good news for them. Specially because in India, the education needed by beauticians has mostly been very unstructured till now. People with a passion and the skills have mostly joined salons as trainees and learnt on the job. While this has worked out great for many, now there is an option for going about it in a structured way through courses brought to them by two very big names.   Enrich and education From the beginning, Enrich Salons has invested as much thought and effort into educating its beauticians as it has in its salons that serve beauty on a platter to customers. Enrich Academy was formed with the former intent in mind and now operates at five locations across Mumbai, Pune and Ahmedabad. Its sole purpose is to disseminate its learnings to students not only about the basics of the beauty industry from beauty to salon management, but also the special skills learnt through the years. It also updates the existing technicians about the latest trends and styles along with the know how. It does so through a rich line up of visiting faculty, industry practitioners and international trainers. A variety of courses one can choose from helps learners focus on what they want to specialize in.   Symbiosis Skills & Open University Symbiosis Skills & Open University started with the objective of providing long distance skill based learning. Today it is an educational institution with schools and colleges across twenty campuses. Thousands of students from India and abroad benefit from their easy to access yet completely structured education system.   What both of them plan to do together Enrich and Symbiosis getting together means providing you with the best education in the beauty & wellness industry through the best platforms available. The curriculum is being set in compliance with the National Occupational Standards and the National Skill Qualification Framework. There will be various entry and exit levels keeping in mind that not all students come in with a standard knowledge set and, it being a matter of professional education, not all students will need to leave only after having attained another standard knowledge set. Regular skill assessments, multiple methods of teaching will be provided, along with employment guidance for those...

Enrich Salons is the first to bring you Olaplex and Decleor in India

The two latest reasons why Enrich Salons is the one to choose Olapex and Decleor are the latest offerings from Enrich Salons to its beautiful customers, and these international services have been long awaited by many. They are finally here, and Enrich Salons is proud to be the first to bring them to you.   What is Olaplex? Olaplex is a treatment that strengthens the innermost portions of your hair, and can only be availed of as a salon service. It is the only treatment that actually rebuilds broken hair bonds through three steps. First a Bond Multiplier® begins the repairing process by rebuilding disulfide bonds. Next a Bond Perfector® finishes what the first step might have left out to give you the healthiest hair possible. The third step is a Hair Perfector® that the customer gets to take home to protect his or her hair from future damage.   What is Decleor? Decleor is a premium international range of beauty services for your skin, whether face or body, and is somewhat what Kerastase is for hair. It is the result of forty years of research on aromatherapy, which forms the basis of the treatments. It makes the use of essential oils to combine aromatherapy with phytotherapy, or plant aided treatment, to provide you with what your skin and body deserve. Complete holistic and natural care. No matter what your skin type, there are different Decleor treatments to suit your need.   Why did Enrich Salon choose to bring these to you? Enrich Salons has always striven to bring you the best of the best and has partnered with the most noteworthy brands so you can trust them with your self. When you walk into an Enrich Salon, you know you are in good hands. This is because Enrich has succeeded because of its vision of serving the customer best by constant upgradation of its products and services to bring you only the tried and tested best. Olaplex and Decleor certainly fit that bill. And Enrich is proud to present it first to you in India. A few more words about how Enrich was also chosen by the two brands will be in place here.   Enrich Salon does not compete Yes we could have talked about how Enrich is different from competition. But Enrich does not do what it does to get better than others. It continually strives to better its own self. And the taking care of competition follows without even trying. It is not for nothing that what started as a single salon in 1997, is today Mumbai’s largest unisex salon chain with branches in Bengaluru,...

Why Enrich is the most trusted salon chain in Mumbai

Enrich Salons – Love begins with you The beginning of the love story Enrich set up its first salon in 1997 by a group of people who had one thing in common. The love for beauty. They pitched in their entrepreneurial skills and worked towards enhancing not just the conventional beauty of the woman, and made their salons unisex salons. A lot of genuine research into existing trends along with futuristic visions led to it today being Mumbai’s largest unisex salon chain with branches in Pune, Bengaluru and Ahmedabad. Partnerships with big brands like L’Oreal, Remy Laure, Agelock, and Christian Valmy helped both the salons and its customers. The vision and the implementation While many have a vision statement, Enrich Salon actually has a vision. Of becoming the most successful customer-oriented chain of salons with consistency in terms of deliverance, creativity, pioneering ideas and more. It has successfully followed this carefully defined path by focusing on and setting certain very important industry standards of ‘Employees First’ employee engagement, customized and personalized customer experience, regular checks on quality, stress on hygiene, real time technology adoption, and a very open-to-new-ideas organizational culture. In lay man’s terms, Enrich has believed in only one thing. That every one has a gift. And it is one’s duty to recognize this in oneself as well as in others.
