    OMG, I would never get a client to open their eyes, no matter how careful I was. I do same as Trish and Kelly with the cotton pad. Always gets the lower lashes fine.

    Facials What do you do when masque is on?

    Our facials are with Uber (quite a new range) and we start off with hot mitt massage on feet, then throughout the routine take off exfoliator and masque with hot mitts. While the mask is on, we put damp cotton pads on eyes and cover with warm compress. Clients love it and 99% of time fall asleep!

    Pregnancy and spray tanning

    Hi, At my work we use Natursun spray tan. One of the therapists is pregnant, and she phoned Natursun and they said it is advisable for her not to carry out spray tans whilst she is pregnant. If I was pregnant I know I would be worried about breathing in all the chemicals. It's bad enough...

    so who are the smokers

    I am a non smoker, really surprised at the poll results so far. Would have thought that there would have been more smokers. I only smoked when I was 16/17 for 2 years, was never really addicted to it and was able to just give up really easily. My partner smoked for over 10 years and it took...
