How to create a beauty salon at home

As pre-pandemic life kicks back into gear, there’s been a boom in DIY beauty treatments – saving many people time and money.

Maintaining regular beauty services can get expensive real quick.

Which is why many people are turning to at-home tools that help reduce the cost and time-consuming nature of beauty treatments – from haircuts and colouring to hair removal, facials, manicures and pedicures.

Here’s how to embrace DIY beauty:

Easy at home skin treatments

In addition to your regular skincare routine, introducing beauty tools can further elevate your skin. While you can get fancy with at-home LED face masks, facial sheets and traditional masks, jade rollers are a cost-effective beauty tool that have become incredibly popular.

Designed to help depuff, tighten and promote blood-flow to the face, these tools only need a bit of good old-fashioned elbow grease.

Revlon’s Jade Stone Roller is dual ended, so you can easily roll larger and smaller areas of the face.

Dermatologists recommend starting at your chin – the base of your face – and work your way up, using an upwards and outwards rolling technique as you travel toward your temples with the larger end of the roller.

When you reach your forehead, roll horizontally with the larger roller from the center out and upward toward your hairline.

For best results, do this for a few minutes daily.

Another beauty tool gaining traction are facial razors.

Otherwise known as dermaplaning, these razors are designed to remove the fine, soft “peach fuzz” most of us have for a smooth and even canvas for skin-care products and make-up.

This precise blade skims the face, eliminating all peach fuzz in its path, creating a smooth and even canvas for skin-care products and makeup.

After one use, skin-care products absorb faster and penetrate deeper.

To try the treatment, purchase an at-home facial razor like Revlon’s Beauty Tool Face Defuzzers.

Start with clean, dry skin, push the peach fuzz in the opposite direction it grows to help the blade catch hairs.

Next, take the defuzzer and using small, downward strokes, begin to remove the hair.

Define your eyes

Professional lash tints are a great for those days you don’t want to wear make-up, but still want some definition to your face, but if you’re a little apprehensive about dyes or making your lashes too dark, Revlon’s Big Bad Lash Mascara is a fantastic option.

It works as a traditional mascara would, while giving a light tint to your lashes thanks to the formula’s long-lasting lash tint technology which can darken bare lashes in as little as seven days.

Rich, luscious hair

Yes, you can achieve the colour you want without spending hours and hundreds of dollars in a salon.

Revlon’s Total Color range is particularly gentle thanks to its clean and vegan formula that delivers 100 per cent grey coverage and rich, vibrant colour that last for up to six weeks.

The colour is formulated without ammonia, parabens, sulphates, silicones, mineral oil, gluten and phthalates.

Nail your nails

Who doesn’t love a mani-pedi? And giving your nails a little at home love is easy.

It all comes down to the prep work.

Use an overnight foot mask or scrub your feet in the shower ahead of the application.

Moisturise your hands and feet thoroughly and use a cuticle stick to gently push down the cuticles before filing your nails to the desired shape and buffing them out to reduce any ridges and achieve a smooth nail base.

To avoid any potential mishaps or smudges, use a fast-drying polish like Revlon’s Ultra HD Snap! Nail Polish, which provides 60 second full coverage colour and shine without a base or topcoat required.

Better yet, it’s vegan formula is made without any controversial ingredients found in other nail enamels.

On top of that, it contains Vitamin E and Vitamin B to help nourish your nails.
