Spring into Summer Treatment Planner
Every summer clients rush into the salon for treatments to get them ready for their summer holidays. However, if you plan ahead in Spring you can get much better value for your money and more effective results. April is the month to get started on most Summer treatments.
See below for a suggested planner for lower half leg waxing, bikini and underarm IPL sessions, pedicure & St Tropez tanning
|IPL sessions||Lower leg waxing||Feet||Tanning|
|One day before holiday||Pedicure with traditional varnish or gel varnish.
(Don’t forget your flip flops if you opt for traditional varnish)
|St Tropez tanning session (traditional or spray).
You will need to wear loose, dark clothing after your tan.
|Three days before holiday||Warm waxing (and bikini line and under arms if your schedule has not allowed time for IPL to legs)
Avoid moisturising on the day
|Dermalogica exfoliation if spray tan booked|
|One week before holiday||Step up exfoliation & moisturisation at home to legs||Step up applications of Footlogix DD cream (or prescribed cream) at home.||Step up moisturisation at home of hands, elbows, feet and knees.
|Two weeks before holiday||Final IPL session to bikini and underarm areas||Exfoliate & moisturise area at least twice a week||Apply cracked heel cream daily if needed||Exfoliate & moisturise area at least twice a week|
|One month before your holiday||Exfoliate and moisturise at least twice a week||Continue using your prescribed Footlogix products||Trial spray or traditional tan if you have never had tanning before.|
|Six weeks before holiday||Penultimate IPL session to bikini and underarm areas||Warm waxing to legs (and bikini line and under arms if your schedule has not allowed time for IPL)
Avoid moisturising on the day.
Have a patch test at least 48 hour prior to this date if you have never had waxing before.
|Pedicure and start using your prescribed Footlogix products||Start using your Dermalogica Body Exfoliant and Hydrating cream. Treat yourself to a Dermalogica Foliation Treatment to kick start your exfoliation and moisturisation regime.
Patch test for spray tan
|IPL note: usually at least 5-6 sessions of IPL will be needed to get the best results, so IPL may need to be started around six months prior to your holiday. However, if time is short make a start this year and by your next holiday you will have freedom from unwanted hair.|
