As the country re-opens during the coronavirus epidemic, many are eager to get back into their personal care routines.
Whether you're looking to get your hair cut in a salon, relax during a spa day or get a pedicure, it's likely that your appointment is going to look different than it did just six months ago.
Is it safe to go to a salon or spa?
Experts weighed in on how you can keep yourself safe while getting pampered. By now, mask-wearing and social distancing have become almost a way of life — so make sure you keep doing it when you go to the salon. Keep some distance between yourself and other patrons, and try to schedule your appointment at off-hours so you can avoid the rush.
It's also important to know exactly what restrictions your salon will have in place, and ask what their policies are if a customer tests positive.
Preparing for your appointment
Before you make an appointment at a salon or spa, call the business or check its website to make sure the staff is following CDC guidelines for beauty salons and barbershops, or similar guidance of the government local to the business. Recommended safety precautions -- for staff and customers -- include constant mask-wearing, physical distancing as much as possible and cleaning between each customer.
Hair salons should be cleaning the following items between each client, the CDC has said: styling chairs, hair-washing sinks, payment equipment, chair covers, salon capes and any other tools used to clean and style hair. The CDC has also recommended that staff set up physical barriers between workers where possible.
Having at-home beauty activities are also good choice
With our favourite nail bars and salons to remain closed for the foreseeable future, we’re once again re-evaluating our home beauty regime. From face masks that activate during our workouts to skin care, home waxing and hair remove, here are the best at home beauty treatments to see us through lockdown…
1. Remove hair with laser and ipl
Since professional laser hair removal isn't the most budget-friendly option (initial sessions can cost upwards of $600) and many of us can't head out to an appointment right now, we're looking at the next best thing: at-home laser hair removal gadgets.
2. Stay groomed with a home pedicure
The benefits of getting regular pedicures are enormous. In addition to improving both the smell and appearance of your feet, pedicures can also help prevent ingrown toenails and improve blood flow to your feet if you get a massage as part of your pedicure routine.
3. Listen to a beauty-themed podcast
Beauty — and its many spinoff subcategories — may not seem like an obvious topic for podcasts because it's inherently visual, but the enormous influx of podcasts about makeup, hair, fragrance, skin care, and more have proven that there's plenty to talk about without the need for visual aids. In fact, in the last few years, some of the most fascinating podcasts have come from the brains of beauty experts and everyday enthusiasts alike.
