Setting Up The Room
Make sure your supply of LGFB Patient Gift bags (light, medium, dark and extra dark) and general supplies are in the room and are easily accessible.
Check the ladies’ name labels are ready and that there is a label for each volunteer, including anyone from the hospital team who is present. To help everyone relax it’s nice to use just first names on the labels.
Every place setting should be set out with:
- Cotton buds
- Cotton pads
- 12-Step face chart
A LGFB tabard will be available for you at every venue. These must be worn by all volunteers delivering the workshop to ensure a professional image is projected at all times. If you are not wearing your work uniform, please respect the workshop dress code that is “smart casual” – no jeans or trainers.
General items for the table
- Facial tissues
- Hand wipes
- Antibacterial hand gel
- Hair clips
- Small bowls or containers for used items
- A bin bag for outer cardboard cartons & general rubbish
Notes on essential hygiene
- Make sure you give lots of general hygiene advice to the ladies as you go through the session.
- Ensure there are some bins or bowls on the table to dispose of hygiene tools after every usage.
- Cleanse your hands before touching someone - wet wipes and antibacterial gel should be on the table for everyone to use.
- Always use the antibacterial gel when you move from person to person.
- Discourage the ladies from dipping their fingers in make-up jars.
- Use cotton pads, cotton buds or other disposable applicators.
- Use clean cotton pads, cotton buds and spatulas to apply lotion or cream cosmetics.
- Use the clean, new brushes or sponge applicators tips that come with the product to apply powder cosmetics.
- Use a clean item for each application and once it has been used, throw it away.
- Actively discourage any sharing of products.
