Like many of you, the Calm Beauty team have felt out of sorts the last couple of weeks. Schedules, routines, what they count on to help them feel in control has gone out the window. So, not only have they gone back to basics during these uncertain times, they are finding new ways to bring joy into their days.

Jenny, Jen, Niamh and Karen are the hardworking team behind Calm Beauty  - who look after guests and clients alike here at Camden Court Hotel.

We asked the girls to give us a few tips on how you can look after yourself while spending time at home.

If you would like to pick up any products mentioned below, head to the online shop of their sister salon, Nautilus Beauty and Spa.

Read on for their helpful tips and tricks.

Skincare

This is an easy one to fall behind on when we’re out of our daily routine, but it’s a vital one to maintain. Our stress levels are high, perhaps our nutrition is off, maybe we’re having that extra cup of coffee or glass of wine instead of water, and our skin is paying the price. Dehydration, flakiness, congestion, spots.  We recommend a two-step daily skincare ritual with a weekly third step. The Thalgo range of products will help you create your own in-home spa experience. More importantly, you’ll see the results of your efforts.

  • Cleanse (daily) - If you’re skin is feeling tight, dry, or is sensitive, we’d recommend the Thalgo Gentle Cleansing Milk. This gentle milk effectively removes make-up and impurities, leaving all skin types feeling refreshed and comfortable. If your skin is normal to combination but maybe you’ve noticed an increase in breakouts, the Thalgo Cleansing Cream Foam is a great option for you. 

 

  • Moisturise (daily) - Thalgo has an incredible range of serums and moisturisers. Contact us by email for your personal recommendation. Moisturising is key in helping your skin maintain softness, suppleness, and radiance.

 

  • Exfoliate (weekly) - We love the Thalgo Gentle Exfoliator. This exfoliating cream offers dual exfoliation – mechanical and chemical – for maximum comfort and results. Jojoba oil microbeads (not plastic!) gently exfoliate the skin, while rice phytic acid delicately refines the skin’s texture and illuminates the complexion.

Massage

For massage clients - If you have a tennis ball at home, you can position it between those achy lower back muscles or tight shoulder and the wall.

Slowly press into it and roll it around to help loosen up those areas of tension.

Be mindful not to run it along your spine as that isn’t a nice feeling at all.

Wax

TRUST US, BELIEVE US. . when we say.. drop the razor!

You will get the most amazing results from your next wax if you let that hair grow! If you go back to shaving now, you’re setting yourself back the equivalent of three waxing sessions.

And, who are we kidding, no one wants to make those up! Plus, imagine how stunning your brows will look when they are properly reshaped!

Relax

Make your home a haven of calm and comfort. Banish the smells of bleach and disinfectant with Emma’s So Naturals Candles. They are all-natural eco-soy and made in Ireland.

Add vital moisture back to your hands by switching over to Emma’s So Natural Soaps. They are full of shea butter, olive, avocado and coconut oils for maximum hydration and comfort during these times of constant handwashing.

Colour

Add colour into your life. We are naturally drawn to nail varnish and makeup for affordable, fun ways to treat ourselves to pops of colour!

We have the Lily Lolo range of mineral makeup, including their vegan lipsticks.

We also have some fantastic 2-in-1 Vinylux nail polishes from the makers of CND Shellac.

Plus, some nail care products in case you’ve already picked off your Shellac and your nails need some extra love.

Plan Ahead

Go ahead and book in for a massage, facial or other pampering session in May or June.

Give yourself something to look forward to. Life will be back to a new ‘normal’ before we know it!

Visit Calm Beauty for our full treatment menu, to book online, or to order gift vouchers.

We’re also available via Facebook or Instagram messaging if you have any questions at all related to products, or a stretch to help with any muscle aches and pains, or anything else we might be able to help with.
