[04/10/17]   As promised my first good knowledge post is here 😌 and I thought, where better place to start than with HOW TO FIND A GREAT BEAUTY THERAPIST !

βœ… They are open and easy to deal with - this is important because beauty treatments can be up close and personal, you need to feel comfortable with your therapist and if you have any concerns you need to be able to openly communicate with your therapist who should meet you with understanding and a great solution if need be!

βœ… Check they are qualified. This is an important one, each treatment has particular contraindications (reasons not to treat) and correct ways to operate etc, checking that someone is qualified (and as a bonus registered with the NZ Beauty Association) shows this therapist takes their job seriously and are dedicated to operating safely and to the highest of standards!

βœ… HYGIENE!!! Depilation (hair removal) is a very common treatment - waxing, tweezing, epilation - each of these methods remove the hair from the individual blood supply which can cause blood spotting - very normal reaction to depilation! However to prevent any cross contamination therapists should most certainly wear gloves throughout. Don't be afraid to ask about sterilisation/hygiene methods in the salon - a great therapist will be happy to explain these to you!

βœ… Aftercare/Homecare Advice. A great therapist will advise you what you can/can't do after a treatment for the best results and fastest healing! Some treatments can leave the skin more susceptible to sun damage, area open to irritation or open to secondary infection - if you're well informed the likelihood of adverse reactions occurring post treatment can be minimised πŸ’› take care of yourself ladies!!

βœ… Product/Routine Recommendations. You should never feel pressured to buy something you don't want to buy, however, a great therapist will make tailored recommendations of products to you for a couple of different reasons. If you're receiving regular facials or have skincare goals you're working toward your therapist may recommend you buy a product to keep the benefits of the treatment long lasting and help you to achieve the BEST results, a great therapist will only recommend to you products they feel will benefit your skin and products they are familiar with and believe in themselves !

Hope you have enjoyed these wee tips to finding a great therapist, each therapist is unique and each treatment is different but make sure your therapist meets your expectations - never be afraid to ask questions to ensure you receive a high quality treatment every time πŸ’›
Take care lovelies
