What treatments do you have to make you feel better & how regular do you have them?
I have my eyebrows threaded & tinted every 3 weeks.
Then eyebrows waxed & tinted 3 weeks later. I also have a Hollywood wax every 6 weeks.
I have acrylic nails every 2-3 weeks during the Winter and then Gels or Shellac every 2 weeks over the Summer.
Pedicure & Shellac or Gel on toes every 4 weeks over the Summer.
I'm going to give eyelash extenions a go over Easter. I think the upkeep of them is every 3 weeks (Nina can you confirm as I will have the same lady do them as you)
I''ve also decided to go for botox for my birthday so will have the 6monthly upkeep of that once I take the plunge. eeeek!
Having said all of the above, I'm shockingly bad when it comes to hair and can go 6months without a cut, and tend to just dye it at home.
What about you?

I have my hair done every 6 weeks and that's it!!
11/02/2013 at 10:40
Um nothing regular anymore. I used to have lots but can't justify it anymore.
Oo see my help thread!

I used to have regular manicures and pedicures but since having C I find getting the time difficult. In the summer I will definitely have a couple of pedis.
I don't dye my hair, I have someone come and cut it at the house when I remember.
I do my own nails, I had a gel set for Christmas but haven't used it yet. I try and look after them and they usually have polish on.
Not much really! I do a lot myself. Things like my eyebrows I do myself, I have wonky ones from a head injury so I'm completely OCD about looking after them
I do my own fake tan too.
11/02/2013 at 10:48
Ah yes, we all know I fake tan weekly too.

Just my hair regularly but its still pants!

I USED to have acrylics done very two weeks pre children, now I try to look after my nails my self. They aren't too bad when painted. My toenails, are always painted! I can't bare feet without pretty toes.
I also USED to have LOTS of sun beds pre kids, but I vowed not to as the fake tans are brill these days. I now use garnier moisturiser that has tan in it. If I go out for the night, I use the proper tan.
I try to keep my body in shape, if I start to feel heavy I cut out rubbish and alcohol for a few days/weeks.
I don't smoke or drink anymore (occasional alcohol when I'm out)
I'm a hairdresser so in always messing with my hair! I've just bought loreal ever pure shampoo and conditioner an I think it's great! Also use morrocan oil.
What I do need to think about is a REALLY good face cream as the lines are starting to show.

1st baby on your picture it looks as if your hair is lighter now, more bleach or highlight? This could be why you feel it's not so glossy

Eyebrows - threaded once every 10/14 days and tinted every other time.
That's about it.
I've had gels recently but I soaked them off last night and my nails are ruined! I'm not a fan of acrylics. I get pedicures in summer.
I haven't had my hair cut for over a year. It looks fine and I was growing it long, but I'm having it tidied up this Friday hopefully.
I can have free beauty treatments but I don't take advantage as much as I should! I might get a hot stone massage soon, anyone had one?
Where are you getting botox Belle? One of the women at the beauty salon had it in the line just above her cheek/around her eye sockets (no idea why there) she got a whacking great bruise where it hit a blood vessel.

I've never had a manicure or pedicure.
I've never had fake tan, lashes or anything.
I cut and colour my own hair, shave, wax and pluck my own body hair.
11/02/2013 at 11:31
I get my hair cut and highlighted every 6-8 weeks
I do my own gellish nails every 1-2 weeks, will do my toes as well once the boots get put away
I would normally bikini wax (myself) every 3-4 weeks but the growing bump has put an end to that - i really must make an appt soemwhere to get it done as removal creams just aren't cutting it!
I'll fake tan in spring/summer
I'm always pretty well groomed but i;m more of a DIY person rather than treat myself. I take good care of my skin, buy good make up etc. I keep thinking i must go and get my eyebrows threaded and see if they reshape them from the way i usually pluck them

ermm, have a bath daily?
11/02/2013 at 12:09
Shhh - I have had a hot stone massage - BLISS - how do you get free treatments?!
11/02/2013 at 13:28
Hair cut and coloured every 5/6 weeks
Eyebrows every 4 weeks (waxed)
Pedicure fortnightly in summer

I usually have gel nails done every 3 weeks but Im taking a break.
I go through phases of eyelash extensions. I hate how bald they leave me afterwards!
My mum is a hairdresser so its free - cut,dye & lowlights every 6 - 8 weeks
I do a lot myself. Every Wednesday I have a soak in the bath, give myself a facial (have fell in love with dermalogica pre-cleanse), epilate everywhere, exfoliate & moisturise.
Due to no gel polish I paint my nails once or twice a week - usually a glittery top coat as they dont chip as easy & you dont see the marks etc. I just do it last thing at night in bed, I paint my toe nails in the spring / summer when wearing sandals.
I usually fake tan once a week but have only done so once since christmas to give my skin a break. I look / feel manky without it! Im thinking of just using a light facial tanner or getting a really good BB cream.
Im a member of a gym and workout 4/5 times a week. Im recently joined a running club.
Im cutting back on a lot as Im thinking of getting laser eye surgery so I might have to give up some things (ie gym & my contact lense monthly direct debit & my gel nails would pay for my laser eye surgery). So at least running is free & there is a pay as you go gyn near by that does classes for £3 / £4 so I could still do one of those a week and get some weights & a gym ball for at home.

Not a lot! I've only had a mani/pedi once at my friends hen do&shes been married 4 and a half year! I had a masage once, which was nice but not amazing. i had some facials the year before I got married, but although it was nice my skin didn't seem any different. I get my hair cut every 6-8 weeks.
Sometimes I dye my own hair, i pluck my eyebrows weekly, wash hair daily, shower daily, that's about it! For the last year or so I have made sure I used face cream&face wash every day &that has made my skin much better. Just need to find a really good eye cream now.

I have acrylic nails every 3.5-4 weeks
Shellac pedicure from spring to Autumn every 6 weeks (do my own toes in winter when people are less likely to see them)
Waxing (bikini line, arms, eybrows and upper lip) every 4 weeks
Shave my legs and underarm daily/every other day
Beauty treat such as a facial or massage every 8 weeks
Haircut every few months (I must go more frequently as use GHDs daily so suffer from bad split ends)
Member of gym - 4/5 times per week pre pregnancy, now 2/3 times per week
I used to have electrolosis but found it wasn't working so cut back on that
(Reading the above I now see where all my money goes!)
