Remove Grown Out Extensions

quick beauty tips

Your acrylics are hanging on by a thread and they’ve grown out to the point that they’re practically falling off – we’ve all been there. At this point, you’d usually take a trip to the salon and get some fresh new talons. But since we no longer have this luxury, it’s time to take matters into your own hands. 

 

First things first, you need to get rid of those crusty old extensions. Stop right there, we know what you’re thinking! No, you should never start pulling, biting or flossing your way through old extensions – no matter how much you want them gone. Be kind to your natural beauties waiting to be freed and remove the extensions in a breakage-free, gentle way.

 

Luckily for you, Posh Look have put together two Home Removal Kits for Gel and Acrylic Nail Extensions. Starting from only £5.50, you get everything you need to remove stubborn extensions in one easy package. All you need to add is tin foil!

 

The Acrylic Removal Kit contains: 

  • Acetone 75ml
  • Cuticle Oil 4ml
  • 150 Grit File
  • Cuticle Pusher
  • 4 Way Buffer
  • Lint Free Wipes

 

The Gel Removal Kit contains: 

 

  • Magic Remover 16ml
  • Cuticle Oil 4ml

Plus, everyone who orders a kit receives a free video tutorial that you can follow, with step-by-step instructions on how to use the kits. Isolation can make us feel tired and lazy at the best of times, so looking after your nails is just another way to give yourself a little pick-me-up.

Liven Up Your Lashes

quick beauty tips

Although you should never apply lash extensions without full training, that doesn’t mean you can’t spruce up what was naturally given to you. Our Eyebrow and Lash Tint Kits by Julienne give you professional quality with home convenience. 

 

The permanent tinting kit is water resistant and specially formulated for brows and lashes, so you can create stunning, long-lasting results. Each kit contains a precision eye wand and 15ml tint so you have everything you need to get started. 

 

Plus, they’re available in 4 shades so everyone from platinum blondes to rich brunettes, can use them without worrying about going too dark. 

 

TOP TIP: Castor oil is a great natural remedy for encouraging lash and brow growth. Apply a little before bed each night and watch your hairs grow. 

 

Protect Your Skin

Isolation gives you the opportunity to invest more time into your skincare routine, so you can dazzle everyone with your new baby soft skin on that first night out. There are countless quick beauty tips and tricks for protecting your skin from home, but here are a few of our faves: 

 

  • Hydrate – Beauty starts from within – literally. Drinking plenty of water will help your body flush out toxins and aid the transportation of oxygen, which will give you a youthful and radiant glow. So, get your full 2 litres a day and you’ll be onto a winner. 

 

  • Sleep – We’re pretty sure everyone’s sleep cycle has been affected by isolation, but getting your full 8 hours in a regular pattern will benefit your skin. A full sleep helps with blood flow and gives your body time to rejuvenate. No more dark circles and pale skin!

 

  • Exfoliate – Exfoliating has countless benefits for your skin, from removing dead skin to helping moisturiser penetrate deeper into your pores. Plus, you can easily make your own at home with items found in your kitchen. Coffee is perfect for removing dead skin cells – simply mix ½ cup of ground coffee, 2tbsp hot water and 1tbsp coconut oil and you’ve got yourself the perfect face scrub. 

 

  • DIY Spa – Missing your monthly facial? Give yourself a relaxing steam facial by filling your sink with hot water and covering your head with a towel. The hot steam will lift impurities from your skin and leave you looking glowy. At the same time, you can give yourself a face massage to lift and firm the face, by using upward strokes and circular motions. 

 

Tanning Time

quick beauty tips

If you’re sick of looking pale, then a quick fake tan will help you get your mojo back. Our Posh Tan Collection contains everything you need to create the perfect sun-kissed look from home. We have Home-Use Mousse, tanning mitts and Tan Corrector so you can complete a professional tan from start to finish. 

 

There’s nothing worse than creating a patchy mess, so make sure you check out our 4 Step Fake Tanning Routine for some quick beauty tips. 

 

As we all know, there are so many benefits to fake tanning. You don’t need to spend hours in the sun or visiting the sunbed shops to get a perfect golden glow. Plus, it protects you from harmful UV rays that cause premature aging and permanent sun damage. Sounds like a win win to us!

 

So, follow these 5 quick beauty tips to carry on feeling fabulous during isolation. Posh Look have everything you need while the salons are closed, so take a look at our wide range of beauty products and order them straight to your door.
