- The importance of a good skincare routine -


We all know the importance of a good skincare routine. But is it really as simple as cleanse, tone and moisturise?

Here, experts from Beauty Courses 4U take a look at the best ways to look after your face.

With so many lotions and potions to choose from, it can be difficult to choose the right products to leave you with a glowing complexion but panic not. We have the solutions but the first thing you need to do is to work out what type of skin you have.

Determine your skin type

If you buy products that aren’t appropriate for your skin, they will be ineffective, and may even worsen the situation.

Normal skin – is smooth and firm to the touch with small or medium sized pores. It doesn’t get too dry or too oily, and it only has the occasional blemish.

For people with normal skin we suggest that you cleanse and moisturise daily.

Dry skin – feels very tight and is noticeably flaky in areas. It can also look rough and bumpy.

Dry skin can be caused by lack of hydration or poor diet. Those with dry skin should find a deep moisturiser, use a spot treatment and use a moisturising night solution.

Oily skin – is greasy to the touch. Your face is visibly shiny and can have large pores that are more noticeable. Oily skin is also more prone to blemishes.

If you have oily skin, we suggest that you tone, exfoliate, use a spot treatment, and lightly moisturise once in a while.

Combination skin – is the most common type of skin. If you have combination skin, you tend to get oily around your nose, chin, and forehead area, and feel dry around your cheeks.

If you have combination skin you should exfoliate, cleanse, moisturise, and use a spot treatment.

Sensitive skin – burns easily and can react badly to certain cosmetics. Changes in weather can also irritate it so you need to be cautious and monitor it carefully.

Sensitive skin is very hard to deal with because it isn’t as durable as other skin types. You have to thoroughly test products before risking a purchase so ensure that you use a moisturiser, cleanser, and spot treatment suitable for sensitive skin at all times.

- Embrace Change with Beauty Courses 4U -


They say it’s never too late to make a change and here at Beauty Courses 4U we know this is true from our own firsthand experience.

Are you looking for a new career challenge? Have you always wanted to break into the beauty industry, but never had the opportunity? Perhaps its flexibility that you crave, the freedom to work the hours of your choice and run a business on your own terms? Whatever your dreams we can help to make them a reality and transform your future into a bright one.

A career in beauty can give you all these things. So if you want a new start, or you dream of running your own business, we briefly explore how you can become your own beauty boss, whether it’s now or in the future.

Why beauty?

Beauty is big, there’s no disputing that. In fact, the number of beauty businesses in the UK has risen by over a fifth in the last few years, and it doesn’t seem that this is going to change any time soon.

The proliferation of businesses, which include beauty salons, hairdressers, and nail and brow bars, contributes billions to the UK economy.

The beauty industry is vibrant and exciting, with a wide variety of different roles and work options once qualified – including running your own business so what better choice is there?

Beauty Courses 4U founder, Cindy Bansal, said: “You would think the market was saturated but actually it’s an industry that just continues to grow.

“People who train with Beauty Courses 4U can see the wealth of opportunity out there.

“They realise they can start up small with minimal costs, work for themselves, strike that elusive work life balance and grow in what is a stable and lucrative marketplace.”

Getting started

What Cindy says is true, starting up your own beauty business is achievable – especially now that there is much more help available to adult learners than ever before.

Making a career change can be a daunting prospect, especially financially. The cost of training fees can put people off, but here at Beauty Courses 4U our range of courses are affordable and ideal for time starved students who are conscious of the pennies.


You can learn with Beauty Courses 4U on your own terms, with flexible hours so that you don’t have to give up your other commitments on short, intensive courses.

32-year -old Hannah Whitehall, from Leicester, recently undertook a training course with Beauty Courses 4U and one day dreams of running her own business.

Hannah said: “I absolutely loved every minute of my course. It was very daunting for me to go back to learning after so many years being a full time mum but for anyone considering it, it’s absolutely worth making the leap and just going for it.”

Hannah has a five year old son and was keen to find a career that would allow her a flexible work life balance.

“That’s what really appeals to me about this industry – it’s the flexibility. When I’m qualified, I can’t wait to start work in a salon and one day set up my own business.”

If, like Hannah, you want to make a change and the opportunity to break into a career in beauty, then choosing for a course with Beauty Courses 4U could be your first step forwards.
