Recommended beauty treatments for Doncaster St Leger

Looking good at the Doncaster St. Leger races

Doncaster is renowned for its race course and our main event - the Doncaster St. Leger meeting - is held every September. For beauty salons, Leger week is like Christmas week, so it would be wise to decide in advance which treatments you want and to book them early to avoid disappointment.

Beauty treatments for racegoers

It is the ‘finishing touches’ that give you the wow factor on these occasions, so the areas you need to be thinking about are your hands and feet - primarily your nails and how they are decorated; your skin and how your make up enhances it; and your eyes - especially not forgetting the lashes - this year’s biggest beauty statement!

Stunning nail treatments

For your fingernails there are so many wonderful options: if you require length then nail extensions would be ideal for you and you can also choose a French finish or a colour. More popular methods nowadays of creating beautiful looking nails involve Shellac and Bio Sculpture Gels.  Shellac can last up to two weeks without chipping, takes only thirty minutes to apply and soaks off in ten minutes - a perfect and durable solution. Bio Sculpture Gels involve a protein treatment which gives strength to the nails, takes one hour to apply and thirty minutes to soak off. Both these treatments enable you to leave the salon immediately without having to wait for your nails to dry and both are eye-catching, being available in an array of colours.

Many people do not consider their feet to be an attractive feature, but the one treatment which would ‘jazz up’ anybody’s feet is Minx – involving coloured foils being warmed with an infra red light and then carefully cut to the shape of your toe nails and moulded on to the nail plate, where they will stay for up to eight weeks. Their effect is stunning, and the numerous available styles include metallics, animal prints and the Union Jack.

Fabulous facial beauty treatments

For the face a make up is required which will last all day without needing a ‘touch up’, and Bare Essentials mineral make-up fits the bill. Containing no oils, waxes, buffers or preservatives, it has a SPF of 15 so will be ideal if the sun is out at the races. It has been confirmed by dermatologists and the cancer society as being harmless to the skin - in fact, it has been suggested that wearing mineral make up is more desirable than not wearing any at all!

A St. Tropez tan will give you that beautiful bronzed look to set off your little race dress and take all the hassle out of you trying to apply it yourself.

Luscious, long lashes

There are 3D lashes that last up to six weeks, with in-fills every three to four weeks; weekend lashes, that can last a few days; and strip lashes, which are ideal for the single day.  The latest additions to this range are the stunning ‘PH Lashes’. Taking only fifteen minutes to apply, these lashes can last around 2 weeks and, at a cost of only £18, are a must for the races or for any other social event on your calendar this summer.
