With us all now confined to our homes, there is no better time to explore new beauty products and take a moment for that much needed self-care. Whether you want to look your best on that 9am zoom call, or your usual glam self as you open up HouseParty with your friends, Paul Edmonds has some useful tips and beauty tricks to make your skin look radiant and your hair look luscious and strong.
Keep Your Hair Healthy At Home
With your usual trip to Paul Edmonds being put on hold for a few weeks, it doesn’t mean you have to deal with bad hair days! There are plenty of at home treatments that will keep your hair hydrated and healthy until your next visit.
Indulge your hair with a weekly mask. Trust us, a little hair pampering not only makes you feel a little better, but the deep conditioner will also make your hair shinier and can be an intrinsic part of your hair growth routine.
Lather your hair with Shu Uemura Silk Bloom Restorative Treatment Masque. This rich hair mask is recognised for its restorative and regenerative properties. Designed to repair damaged hair, the treatment is formulated with the infusion of ceramides, vitamin E and argan oil. Apply to damp hair, concentrating on the mid-lengths and ends, leave for 5-10 minutes and rinse. You’ll be amazed at how silky your hair is after using this hair mask.
Finish your look with an at-home blow dry. Applying a dot of Shu Uemura Blow Dry Beautifier to damp hair before blow-drying your hair will help keep your mane in check. This multi-benefit BB serum smooths, tames frizz and memorises your hairs shape, whilst protecting it from heat.
Treat Yourself To An At-Home Facial
When adjusting to a new routine it can be easy to let our everyday habits slip. Your usual skin routine may have taken a turn for the worse, but with the extra time on our hands, if you’re committed to healthy, glowy skin, then this one’s definitely for you.
This SkinCeuticals at-home facial is superb at tackling early signs of ageing and uneven skin tones, whilst hydrating the skin and evening up moisture levels.

Most of us will see a professional when it comes to fixing up our eyebrows and lashes. However, with your local beauty salon closed, it’s time to take this into your own hands. You might start to think about hacking into your brows with that less-than-pro tweezer method, but stop!
Overplucking can leave your brows sparse and needing extra filling in. With self-isolation in full effect, now’s the perfect time to give your brows and lashes a rest from harsh hair removal methods, like plucking, and to give them some extra condition, to encourage growth.
Don’t forget the important, delicate area around your eyes. SkinCeuticals Eye Balm is great for dehydrated skin, which can have fine lines and a lack of firmness. The combination of ingredients and rich, a corrective emollient is specifically formulated to counter the three prime signs of ageing—fine lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity and dehydration.
