This weekend will see up to 500 street parties across Greater Manchester alone – as we start our Diamond Jubilee celebrations to mark 60 years of the Queen’s reign.
So to look your best for the weekend festivities we have the answers to your British beauty blues!
In honour of Her Majesty, here’s a list of the top British beauty problems that affect the best of us – even the Queen!
Breakouts and bad skin are a big problem for many of us Brits and they always seem to make an appearance at the worst possible times. Firstly, always resist the urge to squeeze spots as it can spread bacteria which often leads to more blemishes. Always take your make-up off before bed and try to develop a regular face cleansing routine, including exfoliating.
2. Frizzy Hair
As it gets closer to summer and the humidity starts, frizzy tresses affect 33% of British women. Tricks of the trade which are said to be brilliant frizz blasters include rinsing hair with cold water after washing, only brushing hair when wet and also using a specialist frizz balm or serum.
3. Eye Bags
Lack of sleep, tiredness, a poor diet, too much alcohol and stress are all the main culprits leading to eye bags. The classic cucumber trick or a couple of cold teabags still work a treat on these beauty beasts but if you have none to hand, use cotton wool dipped in cold water to reduce puffiness. So remember to save your teabags and some cucumber when you are making your British afternoon tea sandwiches this weekend to give your eyes a treat!
4. Stretch Marks
Stretch marks can be a big dampener on a women’s self confidence as they can appear in a number of different areas on the body. Although drinking water and moisturising will help, it will not remove marks completely. Treatments like ‘Genuine Dermaroller’ are a great way to tackle stretch marks and revitalise skin. Talk to our team to arrange a free consultation for dermaroller on 0161 865 1141.
5. Dry Skin
With our weather fluctuating from hot to cold within a matter of days it’s no wonder British women complain about their dry skin. Keeping your body hydrated is the best way to improve your skin and complexion. Combining this with a specialised moisturiser – ideally with SPF protection, then your skin should be on the road to recovery.
