Boise Hair Salon Tips To Save Your Summer Skin

It’s summertime and the livin’s easy… From swimming to camping to outdoor concerts, everyone is making the most out of the warm weather and long days ahead. While all these activities are good for your soul, your skin may be a little less enthusiastic about the outdoor elements. That’s why unDONE Salon would like to provide you with the following tips to keep your skin healthy and beautiful all summer long.

Use Sunscreen

Even if you’re outside for a short period of time, exposure to the sun’s harmful rays can be dangerous to your skin. To maintain protection, add sunscreen to your daily, morning beauty routine. If you know you’re going to be outside for longer periods of time, take extra sunscreen with you and make sure to reapply it every couple of hours.

*Keep in mind that it’s important to use an SPF that is 30+ or higher and to shade your skin whenever possible.

Soothe The Sunburn

The first thing you need to do when fighting an unwanted sunburn is to get the inflammation to go down. Aloe vera is a natural anti-inflammatory that helps to sooth and cool the skin. Ibuprofen can also help to reduce swelling and redness. Be sure to drink lots of water since a sunburn will actually draw fluid to the skin surface and away from the rest of the body.

Exfoliate Often

Just because winter is behind us doesn’t mean you should skip out on exfoliating your skin. To maintain smooth, clear skin, gently exfoliate at least twice a week. This will help to remove any dead skin cells along with dirt, sweat and product buildup. After you exfoliate, make sure to use a hydrating cream to help seal in the moisture.

Clear Your Pores

Deep cleaning your skin with a monthly facial will help it to breath and absorb powerful serums. Hot summer temperatures trigger oil production and clog pores, especially when you wear makeup. A monthly facial will help your clear your skin while soothing sensitivity. unDONE Salon offers a variety of facial treatments to choose from that will help keep your pores healthy and your skin radiant!

Throw Away Your Razor

With the hot summer weather, we tend to wear fewer clothes which means exposing your skin to the world. If you find yourself sick of having to shave everyday it’s probably time for a body waxing treatment. Whether you’re a waxing beginner or an experienced pro, unDONE Salon offers a wide range of body waxing services to help you maintain smooth, summer skin!  

Skip the Tanning Bed

A Boise spray tan is the quickest and safest way to a gorgeous glow. Tanning beds and overexposure to the sun can be dangerous. If you want to maintain a sun-kissed look during the dog days of summer, unDONE Salon offers a naturally formulated spray tan formula that fortifies your skin’s natural defenses with fast drying, quick absorbing results.

Top 5 Benefits of a Boise Spray Tan

Spring is officially here! With summer just around the corner, there’s no escaping the onslaught of events headed your way. From music festivals to graduations and weddings, you’ll want to look and feel your best as you shed your winter clothing and bare some summer skin.

Boise Spray Tan Benefits

Quick Results

A Boise spray tan is the quickest way to a gorgeous glow. In less than half an hour, our aesthetician will provide you with a skin nourishing VINO spray tan that not only looks great but helps fight free radical damage while protecting your skin from the natural elements.

Don’t risk a golden glow in a tanning bed that comes along with some detrimental side effects. At unDONE Salon, we can help you achieve the tan you want in a matter of minutes with fast drying, quick absorbing results without any stickiness or developing odor.

No Tan Lines

No matter what you do, a day at the beach usually results in unwanted tan lines. With a Boise spray tan, you can get a healthy glow without any tan lines so you can show off your skin and skip the straps with confidence.  

Lasting Results

A Boise spray tan will last between 7 – 10 days, depending on how well you care for it. After the tan is airbrushed, it’s important not to swim or shower for at least 8 hours. Once the required setting time has passed, you can shower but don’t scrub! Pat your skin dry without rubbing and make sure to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!

Perfect Results

While there are a number of sunless tanner substitutes for a Boise spray tan, these products usually turn out uneven and orange while staining your hands and feet. Not to mention they come with an unpleasant odor caused by the chemicals and formaldehyde used in their formulas.

Fortunately, though, we can provide you with a perfect Boise spray tan in minutes without any chemicals or streaking while leaving your skin soft and moisturized. At unDONE Salon, we can customize the color you want while providing you with a beautiful, natural looking tan without any unwanted side effects or harmful ingredients.

Body Waxing: Are You Spring Break Smooth?

With summer just around the corner, it’s time for spring break! Now is the perfect time to get a smooth, bikini-ready body to look and feel your best. At unDONE Salon, we offer a wide range of body waxing and spray tanning services to help you get ready to bare a little skin!  

Check out the following skin care solution tips to prep your skin for the warm weather ahead.

Exfoliate Your Skin

After a long, dry winter, it’s important to exfoliate your skin to remove any dead skin cells before a body waxing treatment. Doing so will help detoxify your skin while preventing any ingrown hairs, bumps and blemishes. Exfoliation also helps to promote circulation allowing your skin to breath. For a total body exfoliation, try using a loofah, body scrub or dry body brush to maintain radiant, healthy skin.

Start Body Waxing Early

With routine body waxing treatments, you will reduce hair growth while ensuring you have longer periods of smooth, hair-free skin. Body waxing removes hair at the root, which not only discourages future follicle growth, but damages its ability to grow it back. By body waxing early, you will give yourself a chance to eliminate those course stubborn hairs before summer.

Body Wax First, Spray Tan Second

While body waxing helps to exfoliate the skin, it can also make your skin more prone to sunburn. That’s why it’s important to stay out of the sun for at least 24-48 hours after a body waxing treatment. If it’s a tanned look you want, skip the sunburn with a Boise spray tan at unDONE Salon. We offer a VINO spray tan that’s derived from plant sources like muscadine grapes that will leave your skin soft and moisturized. Not only is it safe to use, but effective at achieving your golden glow goals.

Stay Hydrated

Once you’ve achieved smooth, tanned skin, it’s important to stay hydrated by drinking lots of water. Not only is drinking water important for overall health, it will provide you with radiant, healthy, younger looking skin. Without sufficient amounts of water, a lack of hydration will turn your skin dry causing it to become tight, and flaky. Dry skin is also less resilient, making it more prone to wrinkles.

Book Your Appointment Now!

By following the tips above, you’ll have bikini-ready skin in no time! Located near the Boise Towne Square Mall, unDONE Salon provides a large variety of hair, waxing, nail and tanning services. If you would like to learn more or to schedule an appointment, call us at (208) 287-2010. We’ll help make sure your skin is silky smooth and breathtakingly beautiful just in time to show it off!

Lift Your Spirits This Winter With A Boise Spray Tan!

Dreaming of summer? With winter in full swing, you’re probably noticing how pale your skin is each time you glance in the mirror. With less time spent outdoors, the less chance we have to soak up the sun that creates the “summer glow” we all strive for. But cold weather shouldn’t automatically mean pale skin. Spray tanning is the perfect option for those looking for a convenient way to tan even if it’s cold outside.

Not sure why you should tan during the winter? Check out the following reasons why winter is the perfect time for a subtle golden glow:

The Benefits of a Boise Spray Tan

Confidence & Personal Improvement

Just like maintaining a Boise manicure or pedicure, it’s always important to take the time to do something for yourself. Things, like buying a new outfit, or taking a relaxing bath are ways you can treat yourself while improving your overall happiness. Another way to improve your self-confidence during the winter is to provide your skin with a makeover with a Boise spray tan. The simple act of making yourself feel and look better will change your outlook and mood, especially if it’s freezing and miserable outside. Even if nobody notices your tan, you will feel confident each time you look in the mirror.

Impress Your Significant Other

The only other person who will most likely see your bikini body this winter will be your significant other. Valentine’s day would be the perfect opportunity to showcase a warm, bronze glow. It’s always nice to receive the compliments you crave while feeling confident in an intimate setting. A Boise spray tan can provide you with the summer skin you crave while making you look and feel beautiful.

Special Events

Another great reason to get a Boise spray tan this winter are the special events you plan on attending. Instead of having pale, dry skin, imagine showing up with a realistic, moisturized summer glow! Look and feel your best during the following celebrations:

  • Valentine’s Day
  • Spring Break Vacation
  • Work Events
  • Parties

Boost Your Self-Confidence!

Just because it’s cold outside and you may be covered up doesn’t mean a Boise spray tan won’t make your clothes and fashion choices look better. Give yourself a needed confidence boost during the depressing winter months! Whatever the reason or occasion a Boise spray tan is a good option for anyone wanting to look and feel their best. There is nothing like looking in the mirror and feeling beautiful with warm, bronzed skin.

Boise Hair Salon Tips For Maintaining Your Summer Glow This Fall

During the summertime, your skin looks beautiful, glowing and radiant. When your skin is on display during the hot summer months, it has the power to dictate your self-confidence and how you feel about yourself. Investing in proper skincare has a value that far surpasses a new outfit or even an expensive vacation. In fact, when we do go on vacation we tend to spend more time prepping our skin with body waxing and Boise spray tans than we do picking out our outfits.

Just because fall is now upon us and the weather is a bit crisper doesn’t mean you can’t keep your skin in peak condition. Instead, it’s important to maintain luminous, healthy skin throughout the winter months ahead- and here’s how!

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize…

Don’t forget to maintain a regular moisturizing routine this fall season. Beautiful skin is healthy skin, and healthy skin is hydrated skin. As the temperature drops and winds become a little brisker, it’s important to start opting for a heavier cream that will provide you with an extra boost of moisture to help combat the harsh winter elements. Trust us. Your skin will thank you.

Exfoliate

Even if you moisturize your skin on a daily basis and don’t have any dry patches, it’s still important to exfoliate at least once a week. At-home exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells that make your skin look dull. Use either a sugar scrub, masque, loofah or similar shower scrub to give yourself a gentle exfoliation every time you shower.

Schedule a Boise Hair Salon Facial

While an at-home facial is always a good idea when it comes to cleaning and exfoliating, sometimes you just can’t beat the benefits of a professional facial at unDONE Salon. A professional facial can reach deep into your skin’s upper layers to strip away dead skin cells and reveal newer skin cells underneath. Deep cleansing facials, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels will help you achieve even greater results. Treatments such as these can boost the growth of new skin cells and help soften the skin to eliminate fine lines while providing your skin with a firmer, tighter look.

Not only is a professional facial a pampering Boise hair salon service, you’ll be amazed at how your skin will look and feel starting with just one treatment. Our certified esthetician will consult with you to help you decide which facial service is best suited for your skin.

Maintain Color with a Boise Spray Tan

If you tend to spend a lot of time outdoors during the summer to get that perfect sun-kissed glow, it won’t be so easy during the fall. Instead of subjecting yourself to harsh UV rays, opt for a Boise spray tan. A Vino spray tan at unDONE Salon is a specially formulated solution that will leave your skin soft and moisturized while achieving your golden glow goals. Keep in mind that your skin naturally sheds every 5 – 10 days so you will need to maintain your Boise spray tan every two weeks.

Use Illuminating Products

Illuminating products like face and body highlighters or bronzers can help you fake a summer glow. Make sure to dust highlighter over the highpoints of your body where you want to draw attention. Apply shimmer to the areas on your face and body that the sun would naturally shine in order to enhance the effect. Try a sweep of shimmer over your cheekbones, collarbones, the tops of your shoulders, and around your biceps. Pairing your highlight with a touch of bronzer can also help you look like you just returned from a beach vacation.

In summary, the skin care tips above will help you to maintain your summer glow well into the fall and throughout the winter months. If you would like more information when it comes to your skincare routine, unDONE Salon is here to help. Call us at (208) 287-2010 or contact us online to schedule an appointment!

Skip the Sunburn this Summer with a Boise Spray Tan

It’s the most WONDERFUL time of the year… Summer! It’s the season when everyone seems happier, refreshed, and full of life. Admit it, we’ve all been looking forward to it after a long winter. Heck, most us of have even purchased a new swimsuit months ago in anticipation. But before you stand in front of the mirror, staring at your pale skin with a frown, it’s time to start thinking about getting your summer glow on!

However, it’s important not to risk getting a golden glow that comes along with some detrimental side effects. Tanning beds and overexposure to the sun can be dangerous. Although many people think tanning beds are less damaging than the sun, it’s important to think again. In fact, they may even be worse. Although your risk of burning in a tanning bed is less likely, the light is no less harmful.

You see, regardless of whether you are out in the sun, or in a tanning bed, the thing that darkens your skin is called UV radiation. Yeah… We said radiation, and radiation is known to cause cancer. Another fun fact? Tanning beds are also known for emitting up to 3X the UVA radiation when compared to natural sunlight.

Either way you look at it, the tanning process is triggered by DNA damage that’s caused by exposure to UV light. This damage is also responsible for triggering skin cancer. And that’s not all. UV light also significantly ages the skin, leading to discoloration, freckling, sun-spotting, dryness, fine lines and even deep wrinkles. Nobody wants those side effects!

Instead, unDONE Salon recommends a much safer, and healthier alternative when it comes to bronzing your skin for summer without the UV light or dangerous chemicals. Our VINO Boise spray tan is derived from plant sources like muscadine grapes that will leave your skin soft and moisturized. Not only is it safe to use, but effective at achieving your golden glow goals.

Bursting with antioxidants, our Boise spray tan absorbs easily into your skin while working it’s magic. It’s formulated potion is even known to reduce inflammation while naturally slowing the oxidation process that most often causes premature aging.

Fortify your skin’s natural defenses this summer while receiving a beautiful off the beach look without the skin damage. Our Boise spray tan will help you achieve the most natural looking summer glow even on the most fair of skin. The best part? It’s quick drying with no stickiness or developing odor!

Boise Spray Tan Summer Tips

If you want to get spray tans every week or every other week, what’s the best way to go about it?

If you want to maintain the perfect sun-kissed glow of summer during the dog days ahead, you need to look after your skin in order to avoid the zebra-like effect that can happen with a Boise spray tan. Naturally your skin sheds during a 5-10 day period. Simply put, no Boise spray tan will last longer than ten days. Keep in mind that during the summertime, your skin will shed faster than normal because you’re sweating, and you’re in and out of the swimming pool. The key here is to exfoliate every couple of days.

What areas should you focus on exfoliating?

The top areas of a Boise spray tan that buildup will fade first, like your neck, the crease of your arm, your underarms, and around your bra area (especially if you wear a tight bra or you sweat a lot at the gym). So its important to exfoliate every couple of days with something gentle, and moisturizing to your skin with the correct product. *Different moisturizing products can actually deteriorate the life of your tan.

What’s a good moisturizing product to extend your tan?

Something basic. Cocoa butter is usually a good choice. Coconut oil is another great alternative to use over a Boise spray tan. It doesn’t deplete the life of your tan, whereas if you use something with a citrus product in it, then it will strip your tan off. It’s important to use very basic products.

What is a spray-tan detox?

At unDONE salon, we recommend a “detox” by exfoliating your skin at least once a month. Doing so helps get all the old Boise spray tan off in order to start again fresh. It’s good for your skin, especially when it comes to hydration. Detoxing will keep your skin nice and clean. There are a variety of ways to do it. You can go swimming, sit in a sauna, or take a steam. Prior to your next Boise spray tan, we recommend exfoliating with a non-oil based, gritty scrub  or exfoliate. You will want to remove all dead skin so your tan looks as fresh and even as possible.

Prepping tips before your Boise spray tan

The night before your Boise spray tan, you should properly exfoliate and shave your legs if needed. Make sure to use an exfoliating wash to remove dead skin cells or old Boise spray tan layers. Best results are seen when you exfoliate the night before. Keep in mind not to use any lotions or perfumes the day of the tan. The skin additives in these products can affect how your Boise spray tan adheres to your skin, and may cause a blotchy appearance. You will also want to wipe away any deodorant before your tan.

Is there any way to deal with sweat right after you get spray tanned?

Use baby power. It helps to keep your Boise spray tan in place. Apply it on areas that tend to sweat a lot, (cleavage, under your arms, behind your knees – or anywhere else that’s prone to sweat).
