The last few months have been very difficult for everyone both personally and professionally. The coronavirus pandemic resulted in a nationwide UK lockdown which meant that the hair and beauty industry closed down for several months.
However, from Monday 13th July 2020, beauty salons and beauty services in England have been given the green light to reopen with enhanced hygiene measures in place. This is great and welcome news for the industry (as well as those customers who were perhaps getting creative with their appearance) and FAB Aesthetics!
Normality can partially resume. We can hear the “hallelujah!” chorus now - this means that manicures, massages pedicures and body waxes are all able to restart.
It’s June, the sun is finally out, and the heatwave in full flow across the UK - for at least a week. Many of us love the heat and sunshine, while others utter classic lines such as “bit hot isn’t it” before taking shelter indoors and turning the fan onto max.
While we should enjoy the sunshine and take every chance we get to be in it, it is advisable to be careful too. Like with many things in life, sunlight is good in moderation. However, too much sun, or overexposure can damage the skin both on the surface and also at a cellular level.
With this in mind, we are going to take a look at the ways in which sun exposure can affect skin pigmentation. Sunlight consists of a spectrum of different rays: visible light, ultraviolet (UV) and infrared light. Each of these different rays in the light spectrum has a distinct wavelength, and can be measured in nanometers (nm) and millimeters (mm).
Now that all our lives have slowed down a little because we’re spending more time indoors at home, we can focus on our daily skincare routine. Everybody wants healthy skin, so why not take this time to put in a little additional care into your daily routine.

Looking after your skin is important for several reasons, including keeping skin healthy and moist as this acts as a barrier against infection. Also, when your skin becomes dry or irritated, crack can occur and this makes a person more prone to infection.
Before the coronavirus lockdown, the vast majority of us in the UK were kept incredibly busy juggling high-demanding jobs or studying alongside our personal and home life. The pace of our society was ‘go, go, go’ with many of us rarely taking moments to truly appreciate simple pleasures and pastimes. They simply fell to the bottom of our to-do list and were rarely given a second thought.
One of the many things that perhaps took a backseat, was the attention and care we paid to our daily, weekly and monthly skincare routines. If you’re like me, then pre-covid your skincare routine was practically non-existent. The intent was there, but the execution was often overlooked due to a busy schedule.
Whilst it may seem that eyebrows have suddenly gained notoriety in the last few years, changing the shape of the eyebrows actually dates back to the 1920s. During this time, the cosmetic industry was on the rise and women began to play around with their looks, preferring a thin rounded brow with a downward turn. Eyebrow shapes may change with the tide, but one thing we can be sure of is that they definitely change the face.
