Beauty Hygiene

A visit to the salon makes you fresh, clean and pampered. But how fresh and clean is your salon?

During an AIDS awareness campaign, I was informed that AIDS and other infections can spread through tweezers, razors, sponges and black head remover tools. From that moment onwards, my sparing visits to the beauty salons saw me carrying a purse with towels, comps and some hair accessories. To the discomfort of my salonist, I made sure that they sterilised their tools and equipments before using them on me.

A trip to a beauty parlour is not just to spend some time on creams and aromas. It is a place to take a deep breath, to relax, and to pamper yourself. But, parlours are public places too, where a lot of germs hang around looking for new carriers. So, when you go out in to a parlour keep an eye open to see their sense of hygiene and to watch the techniques used. I have noticed that despite having pompous advertisements and colourful banners many beauty parlours look dirty inside and their owners lack cleanliness. Such a beauty parlour can easily be a home of bacterial, fungal and viral infections. A dirty comb can give you folliculitis, lice or a fungal infection while an non sterilised nail cutter can give you a nail infection. A used towel can cause skin rashes while poor quality beauty products can lead to allergies.

So, here’s a little help on how to see whether your salon is clean enough to clean you!

  • Do not select a parlour only because it was recommended by a close one or at the influence of a brand name.
  • Make sure the beauty parlour is well  lit and clean.
  • Watch out for dirty sheets and towels. Do they give you fresh ones? At best, carry your own towels and change clothes.
  • Do not thread your eyebrows if the salonist wets the thread with her saliva.
  • Do they clean the floor and surroundings simultaneously?
  • Do they sterilise their tools?
  • Are you given clean combs?
  • Do they use disposable waxing strips?
  • Do they take creams and other products in separate bowls for the clients? Are all products labelled ones? Do they store their products well?
  • How clean is your beautician and her practices?
  • Make sure that you know what products are going to be used on you before you lie down for a facial. Tell them beforehand if you are allergic to any product. I have had a beautician ask me back gently, “Why do you ask so many questions?”. Of course, I pay for it and I need to be certain that I am pampered and not infected. If she does not answer your questions well, walk out.

    That's so true. We should be aware of the cleanliness of not just parlors but others as well like spa salon or something we went into for relaxation. We cant compromise our health.

    Blogger/Blog*Spot feeds shows the most recent (recently updated as the default setting) 25 headlines or what others call as post titles. My question is how can I increase/decrease the number of those headlines because I think they’re too many..

    I should say also believe that mesothelioma cancer is a exceptional form of melanoma that is typically found in these previously exposed to asbestos. Cancerous tissue form from the mesothelium, which is a defensive lining that covers most of the body’s body organs. These cells commonly form while in the lining from the lungs, stomach, or the sac which actually encircles one’s heart. Thanks for revealing your ideas.

    Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he just bought me lunch as I found it for him smile Therefore let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch! “A human being has a natural desire to have more of a good thing than he needs.” by Mark Twain.

    Do youve got a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your scenario; we now have developed some good strategies and we are looking to swap solutions with other folks, be certain to shoot me an e-mail if planning to pursue.

    Nearly all of the commentary on this particular web site dont make sense.

    I had been curious about if you ever thought of modifying the design of your site? Its very well written; I enjoy what youve got to state. But maybe you could include a a bit more in the way of written content so people might connect with it better. Youve got a great deal of wording for only having one or two graphics. Maybe you can space it out better?
