How to Choose the Right End-of-Summer Facial

Bikinis. Poolside cocktails. Good vibes. Who doesn’t love summertime?

Maybe…your skin?

The truth is, summer can wreak havoc with skin. Heat and humidity make you oilier and breakouts are more common. You may also feel drier due to dehydration or exposure to chlorine. With dehydration, plumpness and dewiness disappear and fine lines seem more prominent. And we all know the sun’s UV rays can damage skin, creating pigmented patches, making redness worse and spawning those not-so-cute freckles.

Here’s good news: Getting a facial every four to six weeks can nourish your skin and keep it healthy and glowing.

There are several different types of facials to treat various skin concerns, and they’re customizable depending on your skin type and body chemistry. So how do you choose one that’s right for you?

Thanks for asking! Here’s a list that might help.

 Because baby skin is a-peeling.

Chemical peels are popular for creating smoother, younger-looking skin. This minimally invasive procedure uses a chemical solution on the surface your skin to remove old and dull skin cells — while also telling living cells to multiply and move to the surface.

The result? Skin that’s as smooth and soft as a baby’s bottom.

Plus, with dead skin cells gone, your products can now penetrate the skin’s surface and work harder for you.

Three chemical peels are available:

Lightening Peel: Improves uneven skin tone, pigmentation and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Includes hand/arm treatment.

Wrinkle Peel: Ideal for aging skin. Reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Firms lax skin. Includes hand/arm treatment.

Acne Peel: Aids acne-prone skin. Includes hand/arm treatment.

At Ella Bliss, facials are not “one size fits all.” Our estheticians customize each service to fit the individual treatment needs of each guest. Ready to get some skin in the game? Call us today to schedule your facial.

A New Way to Holiday

2020 has changed the way we socialize. With the holiday season just around the corner, it means we have to rethink how to celebrate this festive season with the people closest to us.

But just because you can’t throw a big holiday party with your friends and family doesn’t mean you can’t find meaningful ways to share the holiday spirit. Smaller, more intimate activities give you an opportunity to really focus on quality time with those closest to you. And as much as Ella Bliss loves hosting large gatherings full of friends, we also love when it’s just you and a friend or two having the time of your lives!

How to Share the Bliss

Did you know Ella Bliss members can bring along one guest a month to receive services at the member discounted price? We call it our Share the Bliss perk, and it’s the perfect perk for a lovely holiday outing with a friend. Here are a few ideas for how to share the bliss:

  • Festive Faces – Go glam with blowouts, lush lashes and professional makeup services for a “just because” day of looking fabulous!
  • Nice Nails – Everyone loves a good mani/pedi, and the holidays are a great time to play with color and nail designs.
  • Sayonara Stress – Ease the tensions of this year with an indulgent massage and soothing facial customized to put you in a state of total relaxation. Look into upgrades such as our sugar scrub or hot stones for added ahhhhhhs.
  • Gift the Gift of Bliss – Ella Bliss gift cards make for an excellent present!
  • Holiday Gift Bundles – Take holiday gift giving to a whole new level this year with our Holiday Gift Bundles!

Of course, no holiday celebration would be complete without a bubbly beverage or two—and you’ll find plenty of options on the Ella Bliss drink menu. Toast with champagne, a glass of rosé or a cozy cup of coffee.

‘Tis still one of our busiest seasons, so be sure to book your holiday bliss soon!

Spotlight On: Kimberly

A self-proclaimed homebody, esthetician Kimberly has felt right at home in the family atmosphere at Ella Bliss. Her favorite parts about working here are her co-workers and the amazing clients she gets to help transform. When it’s her turn for a little EB pampering, there’s no competition: she loves getting a massage and enjoying a glass of champagne.

Kimberly is all about helping others be their best, and her passion extends beyond the wonderful services she provides her Ella Bliss clients. She’s currently in school to become a nurse, and she takes care of two dogs and two cats, all of which are rescues.

While she offers a long list of services – facials, makeup, waxing, brows and lashes – she highly recommends the lash lift and brow lamination trends to really make your eyes pop.

You can book an appointment with Kimberly on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at our Greenwood Village beauty bar. When you see her, be sure to ask her about her crazy double-jointed elbows and her favorite episode of Schitt’s Creek!
