Beauty Expert: Chlöe Boyd
How did you start? I started Elysium Beauty in my parents’ spare bedroom in June 2015. I created a Facebook Page to post before/after photos of my clients and well, here I am with a multi-award-winning business and a team of talented therapists by my side.
What’s the best thing about working in the industry?
Loving what you do! This industry is fun, it’s creative and it’s a community where clients become your friends. Who else can say they wake up each day and can’t wait to get to work?
My favourite beauty essential is:
The Lumi Spa is my favourite bathroom product. It was crucial to my lockdown glow-up and definitely helped combat the onset of “maskne”. This can be bought from us directly, but we’ll also be incorporating it into our facial treatment menu shortly.
My beauty top tip is:
Never go to sleep with your makeup on! It dehydrates the skin and causes breakouts. Always double cleanse before bed and once more in the morning before applying daily makeup.
My favourite beauty treatment is:
I love Hollywood waxing! Or waxing in general. It’s quick, effective and long lasting.
What’s the most popular treatment/service at Elysium?
LVL lashes and henna brows. These are most definitely our most booked services. Its popularity has even increased post-lockdown, as the lashes and brows are all that’s visible over our mandatory face coverings!
Lastly, what’s your top tip for achieving relaxation at home?
Social media detox. We spend too much time endlessly scrolling and we don’t give our minds enough time to close all the tabs of our day. I enjoy meditating and doing Pilates at home as a form of relaxation and zen time.
