Beauty treatments to try at home

The covid-19 pandemic accelerated the use of at-home beauty treatments. The inability to get treatments done professionally saw many people give them a go themselves.

With the benefit of cost savings and the convenience of not having to book appointments, at-home beauty treatments are still very popular post-pandemic.

If you’re wanting to get into doing your own treatments but are not sure where to get started, here are some of the options you could consider:

If you choose to remove your body hair, waxing could be the perfect option. It is far more budget-friendly than higher end treatments such as laser hair removal. As well as this, it is far more effective than shaving as the hair is removed directly from the root, meaning it grows back thinner and less frequently. Whether you opt for strip or hot waxing, order some hair removing wax and give it a try.

Make sure to closely follow all instructions provided to avoid burning yourself.

Gel manicure
Gel manicures are a fantastic way to feel more put together, whilst also caring for your nails and preventing biting. Despite their benefits, they can be costly, and due to nail growth require frequent maintenance. Although it requires some initial investment in a lamp, gel polishes, and nail tools, doing your own gel manicures is a great way to save money. Doing your nails yourself also means you don’t have to wait for an appointment to become free, so they can be done far more often and changed on demand to match outfits or be in keeping with any occasion.

Once you have practiced enough to perfect a plain manicure, you can begin experimenting with fun nail art.

Facial massage
If you’re a Tik Tok user then chances are you have seen the Gua Sha trend. If you are wanting to refine your jawline or simply give yourself a facial massage, you should consider buying a Gua Sha tool. Originating from Chinese medicine techniques, a Gua Sha tool can be used to massage the muscles in your face. Not only can this be very relaxing, but it is an effective way to encourage your skin to absorb product whilst also sculpting your face.

If you don’t know where to get started, there are plenty of online tutorials for how to get the most out of a Gua Sha.

Dermaplaning involves the removal of facial hair or ‘peach fuzz’ with the use of a blade. Whilst this may sound terrifying, it can be an incredibly effective way of physically exfoliating your face, getting rid of dead skin, allowing your makeup to apply more smoothly, and creating a glowy appearance.

You must be very careful when dermaplaning to avoid cutting yourself. If you are apprehensive to give it a go, consider getting it done at a salon once to see how it should be done.
