Do you feel like lockdown has aged you?

27% of women say coronavirus has aged them…

More than a quarter of women in the UK have said that after being stuck at home during the recent lockdown has left them feeling older according to research. (non-surgical cosmetic treatments digital marketplace Glowday)

At Strands of Spalding we have had feed back from our clients who felt as though they had let themselves down by not sticking to everyday beauty routines. The lack of social outings and plans to get made up have left a lot of us loosing our motivation when it comes to self care.

It is reported that within the 25- to 34 year old category 44% of women stated that the Covid-lockdown had notably aged their face. As a result 43% would now consider an aesthetic treatment,

23% have had or would undergo Botox

20% would consider other injectables such as fillers or threads

While other are keep to try micorneedling, chemical peels and other laser treatments. I find this shocking! We all feel more confident when we feel good and many of these treatments can boost your confidence but at what cost.

At Strands we prefer to go down a more natural and holistic approach to health and beauty. We feel that aesthetic treatments can be a short term solution but unquestionably lifestyle changes and skincare routines will always be our recommended long-term approach to younger looking skin.

The results that can now be achieved through non-surgical facials and topical skincare are fantastic. Many high-street brands will claim to work miracles but our advice would be to do your research and and find the right products for you. Salon brand will contain higher percentages of the right ingredients and this is because you will be able to have consultation to make sure your using the right products, making the results more affective.

We offer consultations for Caci and Environ non-surgical treatments with complimenting skin care ranges to really enhance those results, and the good news it that these can be much more cost affective then most aesthetic procedures.
