Say Goodbye to Dead Skin

Did you know that young skin sheds dead cells about every 30 days and older skin sheds every 60 days? With age catching up there are other elements that do the damage to the skin like weather, sun, dust and dirt. Thus skin must be of primary concern at whatever age you are and the best way to consider the same is by considering exfoliation of the body. Don’t worry if you haven’t thought of it yet. We are right here to help you. Why exfoliate? By exfoliating the body, we remove the oldest dead skin cells that cling to the skin’s outermost surface. As the new cells rise to the surface they gradually die. These dead cells start to pile up unevenly on the skin’s surface, giving it a dry, rough and dull appearance. Exfoliation is beneficial because it removes those cells that are clinging on, revealing the fresher, younger skin cells below. When done under expert care, exfoliation leaves the skin feeling smoother and fresher looking. The dead skin cells are rubbed off using effective scrubs. Book Appointment With our best skin care treatments, natural sugar peel and exfoliating scrubs, you will definitely be left with a rejuvenated and radiant looking skin. It works best for both oily and dry skin. Wrinkles caused due to dead and dull skin can be treated and thus fight signs of ageing of the body. This soothing process takes about 45 minutes and is done with great care to avoid over exfoliating which causes irritable dry skin. Stop waiting, walk in at the nearest Enrich Salon and walk out with a fresh breathing...

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...

How to deal with cosmetic allergies

Certain cosmetics, specially those containing fragrances and preservatives, contain antigens that may sometimes trigger allergic reactions. Here is how to deal with and prevent them. Book Your Services If you find symptoms of an allergic reaction setting in, stop using all cosmetics for a while. After the symptoms have disappeared, start using them one at a time to find out which one you are allergic to. Discard the identified cosmetic and never use it again. Consult your healthcare provider to find out what ingredient in that particular cosmetic caused the reaction. If symptoms do not disappear, contact your healthcare provider. He or she may prescribe some mild topical steroids, prescription steroid creams or bland emollient creams depending on the severity of the reaction. Again, find out from him or her what it was that caused the allergy. Next time you buy or use a cosmetic, read the list of ingredients on the packaging. Do not use it if it contains the item that you are allergic to. Before using something you have never used before, do a mini patch test first to test for a reaction. Put a bit of the product on your inner wrist and wait for 24 hours to see if there is a reaction. If not, go ahead and use it. Keep your cosmetic brushes and applicators clean. Try and use perfume-free products. Book Your Services Avoid using products that contain water as that means it contains preservatives too, which are known for causing skin allergies. The most common preservatives known to cause allergies are parabens, imidazolidinyl urea, Quaternium-15, DMDM hydantoin, phenoxyethanol, methylchloroisothiazolinone, and formaldehyde. Avoid them. Choose your cosmetics wisely, learn from mistakes, and give yourself problem-free...

How To Manage Your Unruly Tresses in Winter?

Winter is marked by a sudden dip in the temperature coupled with dryness in the atmosphere. Although it is a season where we get respite from the sultry summer heat, yet it does have its own woes. When winter lays its icy hands on us mortals, then our hair, skin and lips bear the brunt of its ire. Our hair especially tends to become more brittle, loose and dry. If you are one of those who lament the onset of winter only because of the terror it unleashes on your lovely tresses, then these tips are surely going to help you to put an end to the ongoing battle with this lovely season. So lets extend and olive branch, call it a truce and begin with our simple and easy to execute tips which will help you to have great hair in winter. The first rule is never move out of the house with wet hair. We are often so pressed for time that we rush out to catch the first bus even before the last drops of water have dried. But this is positively not good for your hair, especially during winters. One obvious reason is that you may catch a cold and end up sneezing all day long. Another reason is that wet hair tends to attract more static and this will leave your hair in an unruly, tangled mess. It is best to use a blow drier before you move out or else ensure that you shampoo your hair well before leaving, giving it ample time to dry. Never skip the conditioner as the hair is already extra dry during winter. Keep your hair tangle free at all times. It is best to keep it tied up rather than loose to prevent static. Avoid running your hands through your hair during winter as this will only make them more brittle and leads to split ends. Excessive finger combing causes more harm than good and so it is best avoided during winter. Pamper your hair with a good hot oil treatment. Olive oil or almond oil is an excellent choice. This adds bounce and life to your hair and prevents it from looking lifeless. If your hair resembles a bale of straw during winter then all you need to do is use a good shampoo with extra nourishment, once you are done with it then rub some hot almond oil onto your hair while it is still moist and then cover it with a hot towel. Leave it on for a while so that the nourishing effects seep in the scalp. The process of healing has just...
