Fall Skincare in Albuquerque

Fall has made its way to Albuquerque, and finally the temperatures reflect it! Now is the time to really amp up your skin care regimen. Why you ask? Well our southwestern sun, which gives off the most amazing sunsets, is not nearly as harsh as we go into fall and winter. This makes for the premium time to enter into a series of resurfacing treatments (chemical peels) stimulating collagen, elasticity, & cell renewal. A series of 6 treatments is ideal for optimal results, & reversal of damage from free radicals.

These treatments are like my facials completely customizable, for both women & men, to fit your needs and wants. Safely working you to higher treatment levels, more aggressive resurfacing, and enhancements. Most of our chemical peels are aloe based, synergistically designed that there is no down time, and minimal peeling.

As with any facial treatment you would still avoid sun exposure, especially the 7 days after your treatment, follow the at home regimen that is included with your treatment for post care, and wear spf religiously. The day of your treatment you’d want to avoid sweating, steam, and exercise. Being careful not to re-stimulate the active ingredients in your peel.

Don’t hesitate if your looking in the mirror, and see fine lines that weren’t there before, acne that hormonal changes have escalated, or your missing that fresh glow. You don’t have to settle, changes are visible after even just one treatment!

Winter 2017 Skincare: Hydration

During the winter months the cold temperatures & harsh winds outdoors mixed with the drying heat indoors can really reek havoc on your skin. It’s in these months where you really have to make sure you are not only exfoliating regularly, but also maintaining your skins hydration. Due to the conditions your skincells can become dry & dehydrated, and die off quicker.


Treat your skin

Here is where it is really important to consult with your Licensed Esthetician. They will be the best ones to determine your skin type, condition, & assess your needs. Most importantly are regular treatments, here is where your Esthetician can evaluate, treat your skin, and prescribe the necessary home care regimen.

Maintain your skins health

After removing dead skin cells & debris newer skin cells are allowed to come in healthier.  To maintain your healthy glow you’ll want to use the proper serums & moisturizers designated for you by your Esthetician based on an in depth skin analysis. Your serums will offer your skin a concentrated amount of nutrition & hydration, and your moisturizer will offer protection against the elements, as well as, nourishment & hydration. Paired together your doubling up your defenses against the harsh winter weather.


Quick tip keep a humidifier running in your room, this will help minimize the drying effect from your indoor heaters. I know there is nothing better than a hot shower on a cold winter day, but those showers can be doing more harm than good and cause water to evaporate more quickly off the skin, so you’ll want to lessen your time in them.

Quick Tips to Change your Look Instantly

We all get bored, with our routine, with our food, with our appearance. Change is good, it’s refreshing, it’s motivating. Here are a few Quick tips to help you Change your Look Instantly…

Extreme partings is the hair trend of the season, so if you’re not pulling that look off now, try it. Parting your hair this way will give your look an edge you might not of had before. Try changing up your normal part line. This simple change can give your hair an extra lift out of the norm.

Change it up with your makeup. Fill in those brows, just a few strokes with a brow pencil will instantly frame your eyes and make them stand out in a way they never have before. It’s all about full brows this season.

Intensify your hairs natural texture with Enjoy Curl Enhancing Spray or Aquage Sea Salt Spray. Bohemian waves will continue to trend through the winter. If you are “blessed” with straight hair like myself than use a hot tool to add a subtle bend to the middle of your hair.  When using a hot tool always be sure you apply a thermal protectant to your hair.

Add a pop of color to your lips, this will give your features a finished look and added appeal. The colder months bring with it the cool, deep tones that we tend to avoid during the warmer months. However, this season adds a color that is normally highlighted in the summer. Hot Pink will be present in all its vibrant brilliance!

Want something more drastic, call our salon & schedule your complimentary consultation. Nothing shakes up your look better than a new cut or color, by some of Albuquerque’s master stylists & hair artists!
