You love your makeup brushes and you want them to last?

Then give them the love they deserve by treating them to a proper clean once a week. And dirty brushes are breeding ground for bacteria! Keep yours germ free by following this simple routine.

  1. Run your brush under lukewarm water, using your finger to spread the bristles.
  2. Try to avoid putting pressure on the part of the brush where the bristles are fixed into the handle, as the glue could loosen and be worn away over time.
  3. Drop some baby shampoo into a bowl of warm water and gently swirl your brush in the soapy water.
  4. Spread the bristles to remove any clogged-up make-up
  5. Rinse the brush under warm running water, then wipe carefully back and forth across a clean hand towel or kitchen paper towel.
  6. Reshape your brush.
  7. To dry roll up a cloth or towel at one end. Lay your brush at angle with the tail of the brush on the roll so they are tipped downwards.

Getting Ready For Your Tan.Tips BEFORE You Tan:

  • Exfoliate 24 hours prior to your tanning appointment and definitely not on the day of your appointment.
  • Pay particular attention to elbows, knees and problem dry areas. The better you
    prepare your skin, the better the tan will look and last.
  • Wax or shave at least 48 hours prior to your treatment. This allows time for the pores to close.

  • Please do not apply moisturiser, perfume, make-up or deodorant on the day of your treatment.
