Get a grip on chapped winter hands

We use our hands for everything. And we tend to forget this fact. The other seasons take care of them for us because of the moisture in the air. But winter reminds us how susceptible they are to wear and tear, roughness and dryness. Hand Beautifying Services In winter, there is virtually no moisture in the air. Yet you are doing the same tasks and washing your hands with soaps the same number of times every day as in any other season. In fact you might wash even more often to avoid colds and flus! Good grief! So what do you do other than crack, peel and bleed? Or even worse, suffer from fissures, itching, inflammation and eczema? Relax those clenched fingers. Enrich Salons tells us. Moisturise. And moisturise. And moisturise. Drinking water, which you must do, won’t be enough. You have to keep that water in by not letting it evaporate. By moisturising from without. Start moisturising, not just your hands but your cuticles and nails, before the symptoms of winter show up so you nip the problem in the bud. Do it at least five or six times a day. Maybe every time you wash your hands? Use moisturisers that contain emollients and humectants. Emollients are lubricants that help shed dry skin. Lanolin, jojoba oil, isopropyl palmitate, propylene glycol linoleate, squalene, and glycerol stearate are what you will be looking for in the ingredients. Humectants actually draw in environmental moisture into your skin! Glycerin, hyaluronic acid, sorbitol, propylene glycerol, urea, and lactic acid are what you will be looking for in the ingredients. If your hands are dryer than usual and crack or bleed, you need thicker moisturisers with therapeutic properties. Petroleum jelly is the first choice in such cases. Next is a rich and thick moisturiser containing heavy ingredients like dimethicone, cocoa or shea butter, or beeswax. Apply generous amounts before going to sleep and keep the goodness in by slipping on a pair of cotton gloves. The moisturising regime is a must. But it is also important how you wash your hands during the cold season. Use a mild soap, warm and not hot or cold water, pat dry, and moisturise immediately. If you have severe dryness of hands problem, try and replace the washing of hands with a hand sanitizing gel or wipe. If the dryness still persists, consider consulting a dermatologist. Hand Beautifying Services Think about using a humidifier in your room. It will hydrate not only your hands but also your entire...

Disrupt Winter Eruptions

Whether you are acne prone or not, do not try your summer acne treatments on your winter acne. The two require completely different treatments, and your summer ones would be too harsh for use in winter. Book an Appointment for Acne Treatment Enrich Salons tells you what causes winter acne, and how to lessen or even completely remove them. Read on. Your very summer care routine could be the cause of acne in winter. The cold and dry air could also be to blame. Entering a warm home from a chilled outdoors will cause even greater dryness. Using drying out cleansers will dry out your acne, but will cause your skin to produce even more oil to compensate for it. This oil may clog your cleansed pores and make matters worse. A horrible vicious cycle, right? Wrong. In winter your skin must be dry as well as moisturised to keep away the bacteria that thrive on flaking skin. Contradictory? Not exactly. We will tell you how. Use a gentle cleanser, which will not make your skin dry to the point of harshness. Clean your face once in the morning and once at night, and not more than that. As mentioned above, avoid strong topical acne treatments. They are high in benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid, which will dry out your acne but cause your skin to rehydrate and clog pores. You definitely don’t want that as clogged pores only means more acne! Try the milder topical treatments to see if they suit you. Moisturise as you did in summer, but now use light moisturisers. Which will keep the dryness out of your skin and yet not clog your pores. Moisturisers that use natural ingredients tend to be light. If you feel you skin is still too dry, use a slightly heavier moisturiser, but only at night. Book an Appointment for Acne Treatment This might surprise you, but change your pillow cases more often than you did in summer. At least once a week. Maybe more often if you are more acne prone than normal. This is because oil from your skin and hair creates a layer on your pillow cases that can lead to more breakouts. Avoid touching your face often specially if your skin is dry, as this transfers the bacteria from your hands to your face, which thrive on dry skin. Last, but not at all the least, drink plenty of water. No better way to hydrate your skin without clogging pores while keeping your whole body healthy inside...

Winter is here!!! But how do you escape from Dry hair days

Winter is great for you. But so bad for your hair. But that’s only if you don’t care for it. Enrich Salons tells you how. The dry cold weather will lead to hair breakage. So what do you do? You wear a hat or wrap a scarf or pull on a woollen cap, right? Wrong. The material these things are made of rub against your hair and make the already bad situation worse. Solution? Just stitch on a smooth silk or satin lining under your hair wear, and you are ready to go! Fight winter dryness with deep conditioning done more often than normal, which is at least once a week. Keep away from glycerin in winter. Stick to natural oils to help you retain the much needed moisture in your hair. Warm the oil and massage it well into your scalp. Keep it on for at least one or two hours. Shampoo only once after that, even if that leaves some oily residue behind. As a general rule, avoid shampooing too often in winter. Avoid winter frizz by avoiding very hot water while washing your hair. Stick to luke warm water. Even though we keep harping on the importance of retaining the moisture in your hair, we will contradict ourselves by saying wet your hair less often. This is to keep those coughs and colds and flus away. Use heat even less. Flat irons, blow dryers and curling irons are big enemies where winter is concerned. Go for wet sets instead, but remember to dry your hair completely before stepping out. Style your hair in what is called protective styling. Choose between buns, top knots, braids, twists and French...

Gentlemen, add spring to your hair this autumn and winter

Gentlemen, add spring to your hair this autumn and winter

Why should one man look like another, with the same short practical hairstyle? Why can’t they experiment with the length and weight lines in the styling of their hair? Of course they can, and they do. Enrich Salons tells us about the hottest trends in men’s hair styles this Autumn and Winter. The Undercut was so popular in the last season that it has carried forward into this one. It consists of contrasting lengths on the top and the sides. The Skin Fade is a distant cousin of the Undercut and is popular enough to dedicate a paragraph too. In the Skin Fade, the sides are clippered so much that the hair seems to disappear into the hair line. How high or low you clipper it is key to how it will make you look. Around the crown, the hair is point cut short and the length is maintained at the front. It is a great option to go for if you have a receding hair line. How should you style it? Blow dry your hair and pull your hair upwards with your fingers. Add a boosting cream for texture and then push it back for a natural look. Use hair spray to hold it all together in case you have thin hair. The Modern Dishevelled Look is the most extreme form of boost you can give your hair and its style. It consists of a dramatic difference in weight lines in a single hair style. You could opt for a longer length on the crown, a little shorter on the sides, and a total clip around the temples. It adds contrast. Bottom to top. Razor or point cut according to the look you feel suits you best. How should you style it? Try not slicking it and instead sticking to the dishevelled look. Keep things messy with a bit of mousse followed by a blow dry and an anti gravity...

A bad hair day is one thing. A bad haircut is another. Book Appointment for Hair Cut In the first case you just suffer for a day. In the second, well, you are doomed for what seems to be a lifetime before your hair grows back to be styled better. Enrich Salons shares with us how to avoid this irreversible, well at least for a while, damage. First of all do your homework. What will suit your face? A good haircut should be so good that it will draw attention away from less desirable facial features like lines and dark spots, and on the other hand, draw attention to your A good way to go about this is to follow your natural hair line, which differs from person to person. Try and choose a style that would look good with as well as without a styling product and help. Consult a hair stylist you trust while you go about doing all this. To help you along, take a few photographs of yourself and study them objectively. Know the geometry of your face. Its shape, its size, your head, your hair line and the back. Just as you appear to others. Now decide what kind of hair you have. Curly, straight, thin, thick, and so on. Ask your stylist every step of the way. And now, finally decide the kind of hair style you want. A celebrity figure will do. Book Appointment for Hair Cut That way both you and your stylist will know what is required and whether it will be possible with the kind of hair, face and build you have. Now get yourself the...

Kiss away the winter dryness

Do you find blowing kisses during winter less embarrassing than actually kissing the person? Don’t worry. Enrich Salons will tell you how to take care of your chapped lips this season. Chapped lips are not just a winter problem really. They are caused by weather changes, ageing, the bad habit of biting your lips, dehydration, use of too much lipstick and so on. To have healthy kissable lips, you have to treat them from inside as well as outside. Drink plenty of water, eat read meat, fortified cereals, Swiss cheese, eggs, silken tofu, and drink skimmed milk. Avoid smoking before it is too late to repair the discolouring of the lips. Use natural lip balms containing SPF.Especially before going to bed. Look for the following ingredients when you choose your lip balm: Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, Glycerin, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, Coconut oil, Beeswax, Vitamin A and Vitamin D. If you can’t go without lipsticks during winter, choose a lip balm that has a tint of lip colour. Here are some home remedies you can try in turns on your lips: Moisturize your lips with honey before going to bed. This is the best way to clean them and lighten their colour. You can replace honey with ghee too. Press a used green tea bag against your lips for five minutes every day and see the difference. Ageing lips are taken care of by lemon juice. Mix one spoon of milk cream with a few drops of lemon juice and put it in the fridge for an hour. Apply it on and around your lips before going to bed. Rose water mixed with glycerine will make your lips as well as your whole face glow! Glycerine mixed with honey will melt away wrinkles and dryness.

Wash it off with normal water, and follow it up with a good lip balm. A special winter treatment you can do on your lips at home is as follows: Rose water mixed with honey will prevent cracks and moisturise as well. Leave the mixture on for fifteen minutes. Do this...
