unDONE Salon: Fall Skin Care Treatments

A change of the seasons, especially here in Idaho, means a change in the way our skin reacts to the elements.

The good news is that you won’t need to revamp your entire routine. Instead, only minor adjustments in your regimen can go along way. Below are some of the best treatments unDONE offers to keep your skin healthy as we transition to fall.

Chemical peel

A chemical peel is an exfoliation treatment that combats a wide range of skincare concerns like aging, sun damage, acne, mild scarring and uneven skin tone. A light chemical peel provided by the esthetician at our Boise hair salon, are non-invasive treatments that remove the upper layers of dead and damaged skin while encouraging skin cell regeneration. The strength and formulation of the chemical solution applied always depends on the individual needs of our client.

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.

The Benefits of a Winter Facial at unDONE Salon

Winter in Idaho can be a wonderful time of year with the beautiful snow and fun outdoor activities. However, the harsh cold air combined with dry indoor heat can wreak havoc on your skin. That’s why the Estheticians at unDONE Salon recommend a winter facial treatment to help keep your complexion smooth, healthy, and beautiful.

Despite the common misconception that you are safe from the sun during the winter, harsh UV rays can penetrate even the cloudiest skies causing damage to your skin. This coupled with the   effect of cold winds and lack of moisture in the air can leave your skin dry and irritated.

A winter facial at unDONE Salon can help counteract these effects by improving circulation, buffing away dry skin, and restoring moisture and hydration.

Stimulate & Exfoliate

By improving circulation to the face, we stimulate our skin’s natural renewal, leaving a younger, smoother complexion. Stimulation can come in a variety of forms including exfoliants, masks and peels that help to remove dead skin cells, revealing the new skin underneath. Since our skin changes over time it’s also just as important to use the right skin care products. Proper exfoliation helps the ingredients in your skin care products to absorb more deeply, maximising your skin care results.  

Chemical Peels

Speaking of exfoliation, winter is the perfect time for a chemical peel treatment. A chemical peel is an exfoliation treatment used to combat a wide range of skin care concerns like aging, sun damage, acne, mild scarring and uneven skin tone. Depending on the strength and formulation, a chemical peel will also help to battle fine lines, pigmentation and smooth tone texture while ultimately slowing down the aging process.

Deep Cleansing

Deep cleansing is important for all skin types but particularly to those who suffer from acne. A winter facial at our Boise hair salon will help to clear your pores while promoting healing and restoration. While daily cleansing may seem adequate for makeup removal, a winter facial will provide you a deeper cleansing result by removing unwanted dirt, makeup, and grime deep within your pores helping your skin to breath.

Moisturise

Finally, the professional skin care estheticians at unDONE Salon will nourish your complexion with a moisturiser best suited for your skin care needs. In general, our skin requires more moisture and protection during the winter. That’s why it’s important to remain vigilant about protecting our skin from the sun and harsh winter elements with an SPF moisturizer with protective ingredients.

Schedule An Appointment

One of the greatest benefits of a winter facial at unDONE Salon is the deep relaxation, stress relief and inner warmth that comes from taking the time to nurture ourselves. The professional skin care estheticians at unDONE Salon will provide you with a thorough skin analysis and consultation to help you look and feel your best this winter. Our elite team Boise hair salon stylists, estheticians, and nail technicians can help you maintain the perfect hair, skin and nails for any season.
