We Are Temporarily Closed

In light of the government’s recent announcement, and our sense of responsibility to our team & customers, we have ceased offering treatments with immediate effect and our physical salon is now temporarily closed.

We’re saddened and a little scared at having to make such a decision but will bounce back stronger than ever (and with a new team member when Kellie’s baby arrives ❤️). Please bare with us as we contact everyone and keep you updated. Our main priority is the safety, health & wellbeing of our team, their families and anyone who visits our small business.

We’re sorry for our delayed post but it was important that we spoke with our team and offered reassurance to them before making a wider reaching announcement.

  • Appointments: We will be in touch with everyone who has appointments over the coming weeks. At the minute we’re uncertain how long we will be closed for but please be reassured that this is temporary and we’ll be back, ready to warmly welcome you all again soon. If you have an Online Booking Account you can manage/cancel any future appointments via this.
  • Gift Vouchers: If you have gift vouchers due to expire, please do not worry about these. When we’re back to business as usual we’ll be honouring these.
  • Products: We’ve had people asking about the availability of Environ & Dermalogica products while we’re closed. We still have a full range available for sale and these can be ordered online or by emailing info@roamerholistic.co.uk and popped in the post to you.
  • Keep In Touch: We will be posting lots of usual and interesting information, and trying to keep in touch with you all via our social pages so get following us on Facebook and Instagram.

Most importantly, please look after and take care of yourselves & loved ones. These uncertain times will pass and right now it’s about showing kindness and support to one and other.

Love all the Roamer Team ❤️

Health & Safety Update

Salon Health & Safety Update

(with effect 18th March)

As you may already be aware, over the last two weeks, we’ve taken extra steps & precautions to protect not only you as clients of our business but also our team members, given the Covid-19 outbreak.

With this said we’ve identified other areas in which we can take extra precautions for your health & safety, our staff’s health & safety and to continually uphold our exceptional high standards in cleanliness, to give everyone peace of mind that Roamer is taking this matter as seriously as we need to. These added precautions will take effect as of tomorrow (19th March).

  • We will call all clients the day prior to their appointment to ensure they are feeling fit & well to attend and that they aren’t currently in contact with anyone in self-isolation.
  • We ask that all clients, upon entering the salon, immediately sanitise and wash their hands. We have multiple stations available throughout the building.
  • We have temporarily removed all magazines & booklets from reception. The only pamphlet now available is our treatment list which is for individuals to take home.
  • We have temporarily removed all product testers from display, however, new & sealed retail products are available to purchase.
  • We will now be offering cold drinks only (water & fruit juice) in disposable cups.
  • We will be further spacing appointments to avoid high numbers of people in the salon at one time. Team members will be working on a 1-2-1 basis and we politely ask that you don’t bring ‘plus ones’ to appointments, ie. friends, family members or children who are waiting on you while you have a treatment. Should you need to have someone with you to accompany you to the start of your appointment and meet you at the end, that is perfectly fine. All we ask is if they don’t wait at reception during your treatment and we can call them within 5 minutes of your treatment ending to return to the salon.

Steps in our booking process are being taken to reduce the operating capacity of the salon to avoid crowding in the building. Please take full advantage of the ability to buy gift vouchers online rather than coming into the salon.

  • We will only have one bathroom in operation, on the ground floor, to ensure we can maintain exceptional standards of cleanliness.

As always we will continue to review the situation daily and post any updates as speedily as we can.

In the meantime, if you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment please don’t hesitate to contact us. And most importantly if there’s anything at all that we could possibly do to help you or your family please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

With our very best wishes,
The Roamer Team

Pregnancy Massage Now Available

Pregnancy massage is now available in Newtownards. Also known as pre-natal massage it helps promote relaxation and bonding, soothes nerves, and relieves a strained back and tired muscles in expectant mothers. And even better, it’s now available at Roamer Holistic Health & Beauty, Newtownards.

Pregnancy massage has been shown to ease pain and reduce anxiety in the first stage of labour. It can help you to cope with contractions by making them feel less intense and more manageable. In turn this can reduce labour time and pain relief required.

What are the benefits of Pregnancy Massage?

As well as feeling relaxed, there are many benefits to having a pregnancy massage, such as:

  • Muscular discomforts such as leg cramps, muscle stiffness, tension and knots – massage improves circulation and can therefore stimulate the flow of blood to these areas, easing discomfort.
  • Muscular imbalance caused by postural changes – massage can help the lumbar region to regain balance and relieve discomfort.
  • A tight buttock muscle can cause sciatic pain during pregnancy.  Massage can help to relax this muscle and relieve the pain caused by the pinched nerve.
  • Constipation – regular abdominal massage will encourage your bowels to move.
  • Headaches and sinus pain – massage of the face, neck and shoulders can help to alleviate sinus pressure and headaches caused by tension.
  • Swelling/oedema – extra pressure your uterus places on your legs can lead to swelling in your feet and ankles. Massage can improve circulation and lymph flow to the affected areas, helping to reduce swelling.

Pregnancy Massage is now available to Book Online.

The Myth Behind High SPFs

Do we really know how to protect our skin?

So granted, Summer 2019 has been a bit of a washout but it’s important to really understand the need to protect yourself and your skin by using an SPF. And don’t be tricked into thinking the higher the SPF, the safer you are!

SPFs have never been higher, but neither has the rate of skin cancer. According to Cancer Research UK, over 15,400 people develop malignant melanoma each year, compared with around 1,800 in the mid-1970s. SPFs are now available in excess of 60, so why aren’t they protecting us?

Sunscreen products – saviours or sinners?

Despite using very high SPFs, the numbering system can be misleading. It’s logical to assume that SPF30 provides twice the protection of SPF 15, but it only blocks 4% more rays (SPF 15 blocks 93%) and contains a much greater level of potentially harmful chemicals. High SPFs give a false sense of security, which means people reapply them less frequently and spend longer in the sun. Another contributing factor to the rise of skin cancer is that people don’t apply enough, particularly if the SPF is high. The advice is to cover the skin in a ‘shot and a half’ but in a study published by the journal JAMA Dermatology, only 55% correctly identified the amount required.

Free radical damage

Research has shown that high SPFs can be harmful when left on the skin*.Chemical sunscreens are only effective for two-three hours after application. They absorb UV rays during this time, but once they stop working they turn into free radicals which react with DNA cells, increasing the visible signs of ageing and the risk of skin cancer. It’s therefore important to keep reapplying regularly. 

“Scientists do not recommend anything stronger than SPF 15-20 because there is minimal advantage from the higher SPFs….stronger creams contain greater concentrations of sunscreen agents which themselves can be converted into free radicals by exposure to UV rays” says Dr Des Fernandes, founder of Environ. It’s important to remember that SPF only indicates protection from UVB rays, which cause burning, and not UVA which cause photo-ageing so using a broad spectrum cream which protects against both is key. 

A second line of defence 

If you want to achieve superior protection against the sun, antioxidants need to be incorporated into their skincare regime. They mop up free radicals generated in the skin from UV exposure, minimising the damaging effects they have on DNA. You should consider applying an antioxidant sunscreen such as RAD from Environ®. Daily use is essential. Studies indicate that even on cloudy days 80% of radiation from UVA rays breaks through.  Environ’s RAD is the first antioxidant sunscreen in the world, formulated with a combination of antioxidant vitamins, reflectant and low chemical sunscreens. Safe, superior sun protection for all ages, even babies.

Powerful protection boost

Given its impeccable skin nourishing credentials, it’s no surprise that vitamin A helps defend against UV damage. “The most powerful sun-protective molecule is the retinyl palmitate form of vitamin A, which in adequate doses, can have a photo-protective effect of SPF20 and gives additional protection against UVA”, says Dr Fernandes. As well as applying topically, it should be taken in supplement form. “

By using a combination of Vitamin A and antioxidants, it’s possible to safely expose skin to the sun for no longer than 20 minutes without sunscreen, in order to synthesize vitamin D, which is vital for healthy skin as well as preventing conditions such as osteoporosis and even cancer.

Safe in the Sunshine – A, B, C

A: Antioxidants are an essential sunscreen ingredient

B: Be vigilant – reapply regularly 

C: Choose to include a daily dose of a vitamin A and antioxidant supplement 

3 Essential Suncressn Element To Look For:

1. Antioxidants to help minimise UV Ray damage that penetrates sunscreen filters

2. Chemical sunscreens absorb the radiation from UV rays, neutralising their damaging effects. 

3. Reflectants such as titanium dioxide (found in some of our jane iredale products) reflect rays and scatter energy causing them to ‘bounce’ off the skin.

How UV Rays Damage Skin

• UV light destroys Langerhans cells which participate in the immune response against cancer. 

• Generates free radicals which damage skin cell’s DNA

• Contributes to the breakdown of collagen and elastin

• Damages melanocyte cells

Environ Now Available at Roamer

Environ is now available at Roamer Holistic Health & Beauty, Northern Ireland.

What we do:

Environ creates scientifically researched and developed skin care products that make a real lasting difference to the appearance of the skin so that consumers everywhere can have a beautiful skin for a lifetime.

How we do it:

We combine the best of what science and cutting-edge technology has to offer with sound skin care principles to provide superior scientific-based skin care for everyone.

Dr Des Fernandes designed Environ to help correct the visible effects of the chronic deficiency of vitamin A that everyone suffers from in the exposed areas of their skin. Few people understand that this deficiency leads to the appearance of major skin problems we develop and attribute to aging and sun damage.

The formulae of Environ are entirely based on the need to help replenish all the essential skin nutrients lost by exposure to the sun and environmental factors, and at the same time moisturise the skin’s appearance. Environ skin care products have been formulated to combat and relieve the harmful effects of today’s harsh environmental changes, specifically pollution and ever-increasing doses of radiation from the sun due to the thinning of the protective ozone layer. Added to these are the modern-day effects of social and work stresses and poor diet.

Every day our skin loses vitamins due to exposure to these elements, which exacerbates the visible signs of aging. The only way to effectively help replenish these lost skin vitamins is through topical applications and supplements.

Environ’s unique, beautiful science comprises:

  • A+ Complex
  • Vitamin STEP-UP SYSTEM™
  • Technologically advanced facial treatments (DF Machine)
  • Cool Peel® Technology
  • Cosmetic Skin Needling
  • Supplements

Environ’s powerhouse ingredient combinations:

  • Vitamins A, C & E
  • Antioxidants
  • Peptides
  • Sunscreens
  • Alpha & Beta Hydroxy Acids
  • Other key ingredients:
    • Hyaluronic Acid
