Ask Ella: When is the best time to get a chemical peel?

Q: My skin needs a reset, but I’m worried the winter temps are too tough to try a peel now. Is that true?

A: As counterintuitive as it might sound, winter is actually the best time to try a deeper skincare treatment such as chemical peel. There are two main reasons: first, as temps drop and the air is dryer, your skin dries out, too. This makes it easier for peels to do their job of removing dry, damaged skin. After a peel, your skin is more sensitive to both heat and UV rays. But in the wintertime, it’s easier to protect your skin during the healing process.

So now that you know the time is right for a peel, which Ella Bliss Chemical Peel will you choose? Our Signature chemical peels help to visibly reverse the effects of damage in two ways. First, they power away dull, dead cells to illuminate the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration and blemishes. They also support the look of firmer-looking skin over time. During your consultation, you and your esthetician will discuss which IMAGE chemical peel will best target your skin’s needs.

Dear Mom…I’m Taking Care of You This Mother’s Day!

Mother's Day

Here at Ella Bliss, we think you should make mom feel like she did before she had you 😹 (no offense) with a blow-out and deep condition that will leave her looking fresh and full of more volume than she was rocking in the 80s!

Ask Ella: What’s the difference between shellac, soft gel and dip manicures?

Q: What’s the difference between shellac, soft gel and dip manicures and how do I know which is best for my nails?

A: When it comes to long-lasting manicures, there are a lot of choices out there. Our three favorites are shellac, dip, and soft gel — and all are a great alternative to traditional acrylics.

SHELLAC: This option is type of nail polish that’s actually a mixture of nail polish and gel. It’s applied with two coats of color and a special topcoat that is cured by placing the nails under a UV light. Shellac manis are thinner than gels and dip, but still offer a longer-lasting color. This is a great choice for those who want to change their nail color more often. Think of Shellac as a regular mani plus a little extra protection from chipping.

DIP: This manicure gets its name from how it is applied — which is exactly as it sounds. After a base or primer coat is painted on, each nail is dipped into a small pot of colored acrylic powder. This process is repeated until you reach the desired amount of coverage, building up a protective layer over the nails. The powder cures in the air with no UV light required to create a strong, chip-proof bond. Looking for more length? Extensions can be added with Dip nails, too!

GEL EXTENSIONS: The newest option to hit the market, Gel Extensions are already shaped full soft gel nail tip that get secured on the natural nail with gel. They come in different shapes and lengths and are quicker to apply (and less damaging) than traditional acrylic tips. They last and are lightweight enough to feel like your natural nail!

Ella Bliss Spotlight: Meet Katrina

If you’ve been frequenting our Denver location in the past few months, you may recognize this Ella Bliss spotlight technician. Meet Katrina, our baddie in charge of blowouts. She’s been with our team for nearly half a year now, and we couldn’t be happier to share her talents.

Unlike most of our wonderful staff, Katrina is not a Colorado native. On the contrary, she recently moved here from California 🏝. She graduated from Marinello, and has a 2-year-old Pittie named Brixton 🐶🥺.

She says one of her favorite things about Ella Bliss is our close-knit work culture, as well  as our fun atmosphere! She values her peers’ shared drive to create the best work for customers and is motivated to improve her skills by watching the many talented technicians in-house.

If you were to ask her, a Pretty in Pink Martini and a blowout is the best way to spend relaxation time at EllaBliss. When she’s not working, you may find Katrina enjoying a Crumbl cookie 🍪 (her newest culinary obsession🤤) or trying out a hot new restaurant with her family — she’s a bit of a foodie.

If you’re in need of a blowout, a martini, or some mutually beneficial Tagalog practice (she understands some of the language!), come around to our Denver location Thursday–Saturday to see Katrina’s skills!
