As we kick off the New Year, why not make some beauty inspired resolutions to keep your hair and skin their healthiest. Whether it’s with skincare or hair service at Parisian Salon & Day Spa, or simple things to do at home, these are some smart, easy tips to keep you looking and feeling your best!
Enjoy regular trims. The easiest and best way to keep your hair healthy and beautiful is with regular trims every 6-8 weeks. Even if you’re trying to let your hair grow out, trimming the ends stops split ends and hair breakage that can lead to brittle, frizzy, unhealthy hair. Your stylist can give you the best advice on how often you should come in for your trim based on your length and hair type.
Nourish your hair. It’s important to regularly nourish your hair with an add-on of our Deep Conditioning Treatment while you’re in the salon, and then with a leave-in conditioner such as our KMS Mr. Leave In Conditioner for in-between appointments.
Give yourself a fresh start. At Parisian Day Spa, we offer a variety of facials designed to give your skin a fresh, clean start. Look to see which is best for you but they all include exfoliation, cleansing, and moisturization to invigorate your skin and help it look its best.
Throw out old makeup. Many of us keep makeup until it runs out, but did you realize that most makeup products have a date on them with their lifespan? It’s a good idea to go through your stash and get rid of all that makeup that has expired or is dry, gloopy, and no longer good. Lip gloss and mascara can start to get gunky or smell bad, nail polish can separate, and even foundation can dry out and not go on smoothly when it’s old. When using old, outdated products, they can be setting you up for skin breakouts, irritation, and eye infections. As you start a new year, toss the old and celebrate with new makeup products.
Wash makeup brushes. Hopefully, you are using makeup brushes instead of applying makeup with your fingers! Makeup brushes offer a smooth, blended look when applying your daily “face”. However, when brushes aren’t kept clean they can trap bacteria, causing breakouts, and may give a cakey finish to your makeup. You can keep your brushes clean by simply cleaning them with a baby shampoo or a specialty brush-cleaning liquid and then letting them air-dry. Clean your brushes at least every 2 weeks.
Remove your makeup daily. Don’t fall asleep with your makeup on! Every time you do, you are clogging your pores and setting yourself up for acne breakouts. The best way to wash is with facial cleanser and water but at the very least, keep cleansing wipes handy if you cannot take the time for proper face-washing.
