In addition to the correspondence below the UK Government published further advice on the evening of 22nd March.

Lockdown Beauty Tip 1 -
Celtic Holiday Parks has the "Celtic Wellbeing" brand at both Meadow House and Croft Country Park. Later this year we hope to also install a beauty and wellbeing facility at Noble Court Holiday Park too. During the lockdown period we'll be bringing you some hints and tips on caring for your skin and generally keeping well.
The sun has often had it's hat on during the lockdown period!
We all know the importance of moisturiser but making sure you have SPF either in your cream or use it separately. A cream with an SPF of 15 is recommended for facial use.
Make sure before applying your creams that you wash your hands first; be extra careful with the Covid 19 with hand washing and touching your face.
If wearing make up wash your brushes every time as Microorganisms can cling to brushes, again with Covid 19 it is more important than ever to keep everything clean.
