On the day of the show (or shooting in a large-scale advertising campaign of the brand), all the participants of the show, as a rule, come to the gathering early in the morning. All day long there is a preparation, in which all participants are involved: models, designers, stylists, makeup artists, stage director, film crews, illuminators, engineers, etc.
Models arrive without makeup, with perfectly clean hair without any traces of styling products.
If there were no instructions from the designer and stylist, you should give preference to natural manicure and pedicure.
If there were no specific tasks for the selection from the designer and / or stylist, the linen should also be "nude".
Models usually arrive in comfortable casual clothes, knowing that at the end of the day, after a day "on their feet", they will want to get home, take a shower and fall into a deep sleep as soon as possible.
Nobody takes valuable things and jewelry with them, because in the hustle and bustle, in a very tight schedule, hundreds of strangers work. In the hustle and bustle and creative disorder, all this can simply be lost, as sometimes the simplest things are lost if you do not observe your personal elementary order.
It is advisable to take care of your own food, personal hygiene products and other necessary things that are difficult to do without.
Comfortable, removable shoes are usually required. In the "dressing room" also you can not do without it. It should be simple and comfortable.
Most often, in rooms where there are many people, it is stuffy, and strong drafts occur during ventilation. Therefore, it is advisable to have a warm cardigan or cape, warm socks with you. It is advisable not to use sweaters, because it is easy to ruin the styling and makeup if they are already done and the model is frozen.
You should also bring neutral and black stockings or tights if you need them. And a medical patch: the runway can be slippery, and depending on the shoe, it can be a big problem. It is better to use a rolled plaster, because it is more effective - with a greater degree of adhesion to the coating of the sole, it will not come off at the most inopportune moment.
In order to avoid infection of the feet with fungus, and for the sake of hygiene, especially if you had to walk barefoot or use shoes that others have tried on before you, such measures will not be superfluous. Also useful throughout the day under a variety of circumstances.
♦ Foot cream or gel with menthol
Your feet will say sincere "gratitude" after a fashionable marathon. It costs about 100 rubles. Like this:
It can be applied to the feet and legs after hygienic and antiseptic treatment. The effect is excellent, it is just a salvation for tired legs. If there are problems with puffiness, with veins and blood vessels (this happens at any, even a young age), then at home in the morning before preparation and rehearsal wear compression stockings, which take off immediately before the show if they cannot be left. Such underwear is worn in a prone position with legs raised, know and remember this. By the way, experienced models, actors and experienced people use compression stockings for air travel and thus take care of their health.
♦ Antibacterial face cream, tar soap and a soft facial brush
As you know, the preparation of models is going on at a frenzied flow. Makeup artists simply do not have the ability to process brushes, much less change them and have separately, the same brushes for hundreds of models.
And everything looks something like this:
It is clear that in such conditions there is no time for hygiene and all that can be poorly counted on is luck and your own prudence and foresight. This is a kind of "Russian roulette" in the game with skin parasitic diseases. Considering, for example, that 70-80% of people, without knowing it, are carriers of the skin parasite Demodex folliculorum, there is a risk of infection through general cosmetics, brushes and sponges. The aforementioned parasite is the main cause of the development of demodicosis (rosacea), and this disease is difficult and expensive to treat from several months to several years. At the same time, it is often completely impossible to get rid of the parasite and people live with remissions and relapses.
And what is demodicosis, rosacea and rosacea with rosacea as a consequence, you can easily find on the Internet in medical sections with colorful photographs.
In addition, there are other dangers associated with skin infection.
Therefore, after removing makeup with oil, it is advisable to find an opportunity to immediately take simple measures: apply tar or other antibacterial soap on wet skin, foam it with a brush and rinse it off after 2-3 minutes, then apply a gel or cream with metronidazole 1% to the skin. These funds are available in any pharmacy.
The golden rule for everyone, everywhere: hygiene. This is one of the foundations of security.
