Our Successful Mother’s Day

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

Mother’s Day at Bella Gia Salon and Day Spa, was a huge success from start to finish! Mother’s from all ends of the spectrum came in to celebrate with us, not just Sunday May 10th, but the entire Mother’s day weekend.

We have a wonderful front desk team that works hard to help clients pick the perfect gift for the Mother in their life. We make sure to take the carrun 169x300 Our Successful Mothers Daytime to accommodate every one and customize packages to what the client needs and wants. In the picture to the right we had a client order a gift card for his wife over the phone, when he came to pick up the gift card his three year old son was fast asleep in his car. No worries, we do curbside pick up! We also made phone calls for our busy clients after purchasing gift certificates to let their Mothers know they were gifted a spa day with every taken care of when they would like to schedule an appointment.

In the spa we made everything extra special! We had a special Mother’s Day menu that we made in house, Watermelon, Strawberry, Basil infused water, and of course champagne and mimosa’s flowing under beautiful candle light! Our decor was also updated right before the big weekend. We added gorgeous acrylic art pieces to our service rooms and hall ways, and a beautiful waterfall.

Our team was so honored to make the day special for the Moms that came in over Mother’s Day weekend. For all the hard work, time, and love Moms put in every day they deserve a day of relaxation, pampering, and being catered to!

A The Basic Guide to Retinols

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

One of the most popular trends in the skin care industry right now is retinols. As wonderful as retinol products can be many people either over use them too quickly or are too afraid to use them at all. Here is a quick and simple guide to the basic need to knows before starting to use retinols in your skin care routine.

 

First off Retinol is a chemical compound of vitamin A, that through independent research was proven to visibly reduce the signs of aging and acne.

When it comes to aging, retinol stimulates new skin cell production and strengthen the fibers that help skin stay firm. By improving these aspects of skin, retinols are able reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration. As far as Acne, retinol helps slow down oil production and fade scars and pigmentation that can be left behind from acne break outs.

When you first start using retinol products you want to slowly introduce the products to your regular routine. On many occasions we recommend starting off with the product once a week for a month,  then slowly add it in to twice or three times a week for a month, then every other day for a month. If your skin starts to get irritated or over stimulated at any of these phases go back to the previous step and contact your esthetician.

Like always you should consult with your esthetician first before you introduce any active products, like retinol to your skin care regimen.

Here at Bella Gia we have two amazing products that contain .05% pure retinol, intensive age refine and intensive clarity from PCA (physician’s care alliance), as well as retinal boosters that are a great way to enhance your facials.

 

 

Still Getting Break Outs and Don’t Know Why?

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

Are you following your home care regimen and faithfully following your product routine and still getting break outs? In addition to getting regular facials at our day spa here are a few little tips to help you out!

 

Wash your make-up brushes! 

 

 

In brushes that have not been cleaned it’s an easy place for bacteria to grow and multiply when this happens you are spreading the growing bacteria all over your skin every time you use the brush. In return you will continue to have break outs and blemishes despite your skin care routine.  Depending on how often you apply make up and the manufacturer of your brushes you would clean them either weekly or monthly. (if you apply a full face of make up daily clean your brushes every week, but if you only apply make up every few days you can wait longer to clean them)

There are many types of brush cleaning sprays you can purchase and use or if you are looking for items around the house, shampoo or using a gentle dish soap with a drop of olive oil is a great option as well. After washing them reshape the bristles and allow to sit over night to dry!

 

Skip fabric-softener with pillow cases!

 

 

Try washing your sheets and pillow cases more often first, but if that doesn’t work try skipping the fabric-softener. Fabric-softener basically adds a coding over the fabric which can be irritating your skin while sleeping! Try out this tip especially if you are having break outs specifically on the side of your face you tend to have against the sheets.

Wipe down your phones screen!

 

Especially now that cell phones never leave our sides they collect all types of dirt, debris, oils from our finger tips, and bacteria. Make sure you clean your phone frequently so none of that will spread to your skin.

 

It’s not just about making sure your skin is clean but making sure everything that touches your skin is clean too! Especially if you have break-out prone skin take the extra precautions simple smile Still Getting Break Outs and Dont Know Why?

Relieve your stress!

Saturday, September 27th, 2014

Hello Bella Gia Friends! I am out in Indiana visiting my family and I am reminded of the benefits of stress relief!  My poor mother doesnt take great care of herself and her body suffers for it. Plus she is a natural worrier. When she is in San Diego, it is easier to get her to relax with a nice massage and hair color treatment – basically a little time to herself to unwind and forgot about all the stresses of everyday life. Away from my home it is a little more difficult, but nothing a little planning can’t solve :).  We put in a big hot tub with some Epsom salts and lavender oil, then one of the grand-kids does a nice shoulder and foot massage – she loves it!

If you don’t have the time for that, then we recommend the Mother and Daughter package – you and mom (or your sister or best friend) come in for lovely one hour side by side massages with hand and foot massage followed by a spa lunch with complimentary champagne and fabulous facials.  You enjoy some quality time together and leave fully rejuvinated!!  Check out all our day spa packages at www.mysalonbellagio.com.  Every package can be adjusted to make the services side by side, book yours today!

Professional Facial versus Home Regimine

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

Something that is a common mind set for people is viewing coming in for professional treatments and using products at home as an “either/or” situation rather than viewing them as a team! When striving for healthy skin you need to come in for regular professional treatments and keep up your skin in between.

Regular treatments is one of the most beneficial choices you can make for your skin. By having regular treatments it re-stimulates the skin to react the way it once did in your youth and turnover every 28 days, which is why most estheticians will recommend coming in every 4-6 weeks or once a month. Your skin slows down every day as time goes on and taking it’s biggest drop after the age of 25 its a sad truth everyone must face. However when coming in for professional treatments you can trigger your skin to act younger than it is and not slow down but maintain a healthy rhythm.

Just like treatments can be customized so can a home regime not just the products that are used but how many needed to be used. If you are a simple person or super busy and have trouble finding time in the day, let your esthetician know they can create a simple to follow and quick home plan for you. If you are the type of person who wants to get results fast and are willing to take all the steps necessary to get there let them know that too! For every different personality and lifestyle there is we have a solution to help you have the healthy skin you want and deserve!

One example that has always stuck with me was one that was used while I was in school. Think of it as going to the dentist, you go in for regular cleanings but you still need to brush and floss at home. When coming in for a facial, peel, microdermabrasion, or any other skin treatment you are visiting a knowledgeable, licensed, and certified professional to check the health of your skin  and to use they’re expertise and techniques to rejuvenate overall appearance as well as reverse any conditions your skin may have. Between services your home regimen is there to help preserve the work of the esthetician did in the treatment room and protect it from further damage.  Ultimately you get more bang for your buck by accelerating and enhancing the results in from your treatments when using a home regimen plan.

What is a Facial?

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Through the constant interaction with clients there’s many frequently asked questions one of the most common ones with skin care is “What is a facial exactly?”

I decided to put myself in the clients shoes and google search the question. After looking at the  very first answer, which is usually as far as all of  us get on google search I found that all they had was a simple definition, a facial is: 1. of or affecting the face. and 2. a beauty treatment for the face. I then realized if you are not someone who works in the industry, or an avid salon/spa goer it’s the exactly in the question that they’re looking for.

A facial is one of the best ways to take care of your skin! In most “classic” facials the treatment consists of deep pore cleansing, exfoliation, nourishing and replenishing of the skin. The purpose of a facial is to promote even and clear complexion  and texture as well as hydration and promoting the skins cellular turn over. Since skin is the largest organ in the human body and second most complicated, serving as the first barrier for ourselves to the outside world, an estheticians number one goal is to preserve and protect the skin

There are several different variations of facials that can be customized based on your skin type and skin conditions. One of the best things to do when you are having trouble choosing which type of facial would work for you is to have a consultation with the esthetician whose going to do your service. With their knowledge in skin care and certifications in the lines they use they will be able to help guide you in the right direction of the steps you should take towards radiant, beautiful, healthy skin!
