Today, The Estée Lauder Companies UK & Ireland are pledging a quarter of a million pounds to @youngwomenstrust’s Work It Out programme and @PrincesTrust’s Women Supporting Women campaign to fund incredible projects supporting disadvantaged young women to kickstart their future, boosting their confidence through work, education and training.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated many of the barriers girls and young women face to fulfilling their potential. @esteelaudercompanies aims to help women and girls worldwide acquire the necessary tools and skills, with an emphasis on life and leadership skills, to become healthy and productive adults, to effect lasting change and break the cycle of poverty.

Sue Fox, Senior Vice President & General Manager at ELC UK & Ireland, said: “We’re proud to support girls’ and women’s advancement, both within our business and in our local communities. This work is in our DNA, and together with our partners we’re striving to create a more inclusive world, one that fosters a culture of belonging and equity for all.”

Yesterday @borisjohnsonuk announced a 4-step roadmap for easing lockdown restrictions. Step 2, which could begin from mid-April, includes the reopening of personal care businesses, hair and beauty salons and spas across the UK. Saunas and steam rooms are unable to re-open until mid-May.

In the ‘COVID-19 Response Spring 2021’ report the Government acknowledged the economic power of the beauty and hair industry and the impact that lockdown measures have had on its workforce.

With the end in sight, we want to remind you to continue to support campaigns such as @saveoursalons, #beautyonthebrink and @nhbfsocial who are fighting for a temporary reduction in VAT and a relief fund on behalf of our industry to counter the financial impact that COVID-19 has caused.

Head to the link in bio to find out more on the Government's roadmap to reopening.

The panel discussed the importance of authenticity and the impact that genuine reviews and recommendations from friends and family have on consumer purchases. When surveyed, 9/10 people said that they are more likely to buy a beauty product that had positive reviews and alternatively, 68% of those surveyed would not click on the product if there were negative reviews.
