"Quote Of The Day"
" It's a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you're ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything.
There is only now. And you may as well do it now.
Generally speaking , now is a good a time as any."
- Hugh Laurie
Good afternoon everyone, once again we have had a beautiful sunny Sunday and I hope that everyone has made the most of this day.
It has been a very busy day at the salon today and would like to take the time to thank all my clients for choosing to book their appointment with me at Amber Beauty Salon.
Without clients like these I would not, have a salon that has been going for almost 19 years. It is very easy not to show appreciation to the people that keeps your lively hood going and the people that keeps you focus with the task at hand.
So to all my clients Thank You

What to Do with Your Mask Once You Get Home
You had a great facial you have a therapist that knows your concerns.You have monthly facials with the same therapist you are both working together to get the best result possible, so you have now purchased your mask on the advice of your therapist.
You are now alone at home with your mask ,you can sort of remember what your therapist said about using it, but you are not sure and the instruction on the back is too small to read what to do?
You have Oily / Oily Combination skin you have your Purifying/ Balancing mask.
Try using you mask twice per week on clean skin, if you have a break out put your masks on the new breakout over night to bring down the redness.
You have Normal/Dry skin so you are now using a Hydrating and Revitalising mask.
Use your mask twice per week on clean skin. There are times when the skin is not looking as radiant as you would like, try leaving your mask on overnight.
Don't go too heavy with the mask you don't want it all over your pillow.
You have Sensitive Skin, so you are using a Soothing and Protection mask.
As above apply mask to a clean skin at least twice per week leave on for 10/15 minutes. A sensitive can look dry and red at times leave your mask on overnight this should be done only when needed and not on a weekly basis.
Enjoy looking after your skin it's for life!!!
If you have an oily or combination skin then try using a clay mask, a clay mask will help to draw oil and dirt to the surface of the skin. The clay mask contains Kaolin (Mineral clay found in nature) and Bentonite (Absorbent aluminium clay).
Cream masks or gel masks are formulated to hydrate and nourish the skin.
Before applying a mask make sure your skin is clean start by cleansing and exfoliating once done pat the face dry then apply your mask leave on for 10 to 15 minutes or follow direction on our product.
Good afternoon out there, apologies for not posting yesterday.
I had a very busy day at work on Saturday and once I finished at the salon I went to my great aunt for a little celebration she turned 96 yes 96 on Friday 8 February 2019.
She is amazing she still has all her wits about her and very funny with it. It was great to be with the family for an evening of just being together and enjoying ourselves.
It's a little grey and drizzly here in Marylebone but not too cold which makes life a litter easier. There has been road works going on at Baker Street for months now, but the last few days has been a little frustrating with most of Baker Street closed due to road resurfacing going on and I am sure will still be going on throughout next week.
Apart from that I am having a good day with great clients and a warm salon.
At this time of year quit a few people will leave off using sun protection. This is not a good thing we still get winter sun even in grey old London.
It's very windy outside today ,yet the sun is still trying to make an appearance which mean sun protection should be out of the cupboard and on your face , neck and decollete.
Anyone out and about during the day at least a produce with a SPF of 40 should be wore, someone that is more indoors an SPF of 20/30 should do the trick , if you prefer to go higher that's okay.
Sun protection is anti-ageing it protects your skin from the UVB (Ultraviolet B)and UVA ( Ultraviolet A) rays.
Cleanse Tone Moisturise
This is the 3 main steps to maintain a healthy skin, cleanse tone and moisturise should be done 2 times per day that's morning and evening.
Morning because we sweat and produce oils on our face at night and evenings because we are now caring the days environment on our face.
Cleansing removes excess oils , dead skin cells and impurities from the skin and helps to improve its health and radiance .
The toner aids in removing any left behind dirt or oils from your cleansing treatment and restores the skins PH balance.
Moisturising the best way to hydrate your skin, whether your skin is Dry, Sensitive or Oily-Combination this stage of your home-care cannot be missed out.
At all times use the moisturiser that is best suited to your skin type for maximum benefits.
One of the Biggest Dream Killers is asking advice of people who've Never Done What you are trying to do.
Who've never taken big risks and who have never had the courage to step outside of their own comfort zone.
No, Don't Ask Them.
Ask the people who have done it.
Ask the people Who Felt The Fear, Thought about all the reason it could Fail and went for It Anyway.
I wanted a lay in today but I have 1 client booked for 10.30am. I wanted to cancel her yesterday but she has booked in so its only fair for me to take the time and be here.
I am up and dressed and off to the tube station is a beautiful sunny day I feel blessed, I get to the salon I switch on wax pots and machines. I set up for my 1 and only client and get changed into my uniform.
I sit down to check for emails the first one to pop up was sent at 10.14am by my 1 and only client to say she has been sick all night and will not be coming in for her appointment.
At this point I am not feeling so blessed ,she could have called at 08.00am this morning and leave a message to say she was unwell I would have got that message or send her email earlier but no.
I always think about my clients but some time it would be nice if the clients also thought about their therapist, she doesn't know that she is my only client for today but to cancel your appointment 16 minutes before you are due in is not good.
Have a blessed day
Yesterday I posted a blog all about body products but after publishing this I realised that what I wrote I should be putting up today. This is all a little backward but I am going to run with it anyway so here goes.
At this time of the year Face and Body exfoliating is king and after exfoliating to use the right moisturiser for face and body.
But I must stress a good Serum is a must have take for instance the Guinot Serum Long Vie The 56 active ingredients of the cellular life complex stimulate the vital functions for a more youthful looking skin. Contain rejuvenating active ingredients, restores skin elasticity.
Serum Nutri Cellulaire: Stimulates the production of nourishing elements essential for beautiful skin. Nourishes, softens and restores comfort to the skin.
You don't have to buy yourself a serum from Guinot you just have to buy a serum that you like and use it daily under your moisturiser.
The body products I would recommend for this cold weather we are have are;
(1) Guinot Nourishing Body Balm with Pro-Ceramides
Gentle and soothing nourishing balm. Apply to the entire body focusing on dry areas
150 ml £25.00
(2) Guinot Moisturising Shower Cream with Argon Oil
At this time of year my top tip is to exfoliate at least twice per week with a gel or grain exfoliator.
Once you have done your exfoliating make sure to use a nourishing moisturiser on your face and neck.
Products that can be used for exfoliating are:
Guinot Gommage Biologic and Gommage Eclat Parfait
Crystal Clear Face and Body Polish and there Oxygen Face Polish.
For a nourishing moisturiser try using:
Guinot Crème Nutrition Confort , Crème Anti-Rides or Crème Hydra Beaute
Crystal Clear Intense Anti-Ageing Serum.
For those with a sensitive skin Guinot Crème Pur confort or Crème Protection Reparatrice.
On sunny days don't forget to apply a sun protection.
Keep looking after you and your skin
