Nails reflect our overall health, which is why proper nail care is so important. Here are dermatologists' tips for keeping your nails healthy:
Keep nails clean and dry.
Cut nails straight across. Use sharp nail scissors or clippers. Round the nails slightly at the tips for maximum strength.
Keep nails shaped and free of snags by filing with an emery board.
Do not bite fingernails or remove the cuticle. Doing so can damage the nail.
Do not use your nails as a tool, such as opening pop cans.
Trim toenails regularly. Keeping them short will minimize the risk of trauma and injury.
When toenails are thick and difficult to cut, soak your feet in warm salt water. Mix one teaspoon of salt per pint of water and soak for 5 to 10 minutes.
Avoid “digging out” ingrown toenails, especially if they are infected and sore. If you are suffering from an ingrown toenail, see your GP for treatment.
Wear shoes that fit properly. Also alternate which pair of shoes you wear each day.
Wear flip flops at the pool and in public showers. This reduces the risk of infections caused by a fungus that can get in your toenails.
If your nails change, swell, or cause pain, seek medial advice because these can be signs of serious nail problems. If you have diabetes or poor circulation, it’s especially important to seek treatment for any nail problems. If you have questions or concerns about caring for your nails, see your GP.
WHY HAVE A SPRAY TAN?
Here at Hannah's, I use award winning Xen-tan. When you need glowing skin, Xen-tan really is different to anything else on the market, ensuring the most natural looking tan that’s perfect for any skin tone. Sunless tanning isn’t just about looking great, it’s about feeling great too.

CAN ANYONE HAVE A SPRAY TAN?
Spray tan products are available to all and therefore are very safe to use. However, some skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema can be provoked by tanning products and therefore it is recommended you seek the advice from a medical expert if you have any concerns. You will be asked to read and sign a consent form prior to your first tan to confirm whether you are suitable for a spray tan.
24 HOURS BEFORE
Shave or Wax: Make sure you shave or wax any areas you need to – shaving or waxing immediately after treatment can damage the colouring.
Exfoliate: Exfoliate using an oil-free product, focusing on drier areas such as elbows, knees and ankles.
Moisturise: Moisturise your whole body with an oil-free moisturiser.
Cleanse: Remove any make-up, deodorant, moisturisers or anything that could act as a barrier between your skin and the tanning product, as this can lead to discolouration.
Moisturise: Apply a thin layer of oil-free moisturiser to elbows, knees and ankles at this point too, but try and avoid contact with the rest of your body as this could prevent a completely even finish.
Once your tan has been applied you should be feeling good all over. But there are still a few steps worth following to guarantee the results are absolutely flawless and your tan lasts as long as possible.
WHAT TO WEAR
I can provide paper underwear (thong ad bra) if you wish to wear them. You can also wear your own clothing of your choice if you prefer, the tan will wash out but dark clothing is advised. Some clients prefer to wear nothing at all, Again this is totally fine, what ever your are more comfortable with. Due to its great smell you can apply Xen-Tan during the day or night, but it’s always worth wearing loose, dark clothing afterwards. I also recommend you don’t wear socks or a bra for a while after to avoid any unwanted strap marks.
Different products have different shades, so it should come as no surprise that the longer you leave a product on, the darker the colour. For best results leave on for a maximum of eight hours. We recommend that you steer clear of water for at least 6 hours
Once you’re happy with your tan wash off the guide colour using warm water, which won’t break up the colour.
PROLONG YOUR TAN
To prolong the life of your tan you should avoid long hot baths, saunas, steam rooms and Jacuzzi’s, swimming and excessive sweating and oil based products. Your tan will fade evenly provided you moisturise lightly everyday and exfoliate gently after a few days or when you feel necessary.
PREGNANT OR BREAST FEEDING?
We recommend you seek advice from your GP before having a spray tan, however we do not offer spray tans during the first trimester. If you choose to have a spray tan during pregnancy and/or whilst breast feeding then we will happily do this on the advice of your GP.
If you have any questions or concerns before or after your spray tan or beauty treatment session then please do not hesitate to contact us for advice.
Q: How many weeks SHOULD you go between haircuts?
A: Cut your hair as soon as you feel dry ends.
“Cut your hair before the ends split. Once you have split ends, [your hair] will keep disintegrating. You’ll feel the ends start to dry around the six-week period.
Q: How many times a week should we wash our hair?
A: No more than twice a week if you use traditional shampoos.
Any shampoo that lathers is made up of harsh chemicals and sulfates that strip the hair of its natural luster, moisture, shine, color, and elasticity, so the less you use them, the better. Shampoos were created to clean the hair. They’re not imparting any strength. Every time you lather up, you rob your hair of natural essential oils and in turn they replenish at a rapid pace so you end up with an oily scalp or scalp issues and dry hair because it never catches up.
Q: What can you do to make your hair more manageable if it’s dry, fine, or coarse?
A: All three problems are solved with essential oils.
By applying natural essential oils or treatment oils to your scalp at night and then cleansing, rinsing, and repeating in the morning, you’ll stimulate the scalp to promote healthier, fuller, shinier hair. If you have coarse hair, oils will also tame your strands. Recommendations are Fig Sweet Orange Oil for dry and coarse hair; Tea Tree Eucalyptus for fine hair.
Q: CAN I GO FROM DARK TO BLONDE?
A: In most cases you can but not always necessarily in one appointment. If your hair is naturally very dark brown/black it may take 2-3 appointments. If your hair has been dyed a dark shade this may cause a problem. Depending on how long you've been colouring your hair, what product was used, what condition your hair is in and if the shade you used had any undertones such as red in it. undertones in your natural hair colour can also affect the outcome. A consultation to discuss your options is the best way to make sure you and your hairdresser are aiming for not only an agreed but an achievable outcome.
