Autumn Bliss

Embrace the Autumn Bliss
Transitioning Hair, Skin, and Nails from Summer to Fall

As the crisp air and falling leaves announce the arrival of autumn, it's time to transition our self-care routines to match the changing season. The fall season offers a golden opportunity to embrace an updated hair, nail, and skincare routine after the summer sun and heat. This time can help you feel refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to embrace the cozy ambiance of fall. Let’s explore essential tips to prepare for the autumn season.
Nourishing Skincare: With the cooler weather approaching, it's vital to focus on nourishing and moisturizing your skin to combat dryness. Start by exfoliating your skin to remove dead skin cells and promote better absorption of moisturizers. Look for gentle exfoliants that won't strip your skin of essential oils.
After exfoliation, switch to a richer and more hydrating moisturizer to lock in moisture. Ingredients like hyaluronic acid, shea butter, and ceramides work wonders for parched skin. Don't forget to continue applying sunscreen as harmful UV rays can still cause damage.
If you would like the help of skincare professionals to help prepare your skin for fall, here are a couple Stonedrift Spa treatments that are suitable for both men and women at the change of the season:
Stonedrift Signature Massage: Our signature massage features long, fluid strokes to relieve muscle tension and improve circulation. This classic massage will gently guide you to relax and release stress.
Stonedrift Signature Facial: Your skin is as unique as you are. Shouldn’t you treat it that way? This luxurious treatment deeply hydrates and firms your skin through a customized selection of world renowned Eminence Organic Skincare products.
Platinum HydraFacial: HydraFacial is the only hydra dermabrasion procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously, resulting in clearer, more beautiful skin. The treatment is soothing, moisturizing, non-invasive and non-irritating. Each serum targets specific skin concerns including sun damage, blackheads and whiteheads, enlarged pores, acne, brown spots, uneven skin tone, early aging, fine lines and wrinkles.
Nail Care: As we transition from sandals to boots, our feet often get neglected. We suggest trying our Stonedrift Ultimate Pedicure which includes a remineralizing mask to help lock in moisture to soothe and soften feet. If you can’t come in, treat yourself to a DIY pedicure by soaking your feet in warm water with Epsom salts and a splash of apple cider vinegar. Gently exfoliate your heels and moisturize your feet thoroughly. For your hands, try the Stonedrift Ultimate Manicure or at the minimum, keep a moisturizing hand cream within reach, as the chilly air can lead to dry and cracked skin.
Top off your fall nails with a cozy fall nail color such as rich burgundy, burnt orange, or deep plum.
Hair Repair and Hydration: After prolonged exposure to sun and chlorine during the summer, our hair can become dry and damaged. Start your fall hair care routine with a Stonedrift Spa Salon Haircut to trim split ends and maintain healthy hair. This elevated hair experience includes a personalized consultation and 10- minute signature cleansing massage. We also offer nourishing, detoxing, energizing, deep conditioning, and renewing hair care treatments. Outside of the salon, investing in a good-quality deep conditioning treatment to restore moisture and shine to your locks is important. Applying a hair mask once a week will work wonders in repairing the damage and preventing further dryness.
Savoring Seasonal Ingredients: Fall is abundant with seasonal fruits and vegetables that can benefit your skin when used in skincare routines. Try ingredients like pumpkin, apple, or honey. Pumpkin is rich in vitamins and enzymes that brighten and nourish the skin, while honey's antibacterial properties can help keep acne at bay. You can also take advantage of our
Seasonal Body Scrub that revitalizes the skin with a seasonal hydrating sugar scrub that gently buffs skin while bestowing antioxidant-rich benefits. This resurfacing exfoliant lathers into a creamy foam to brighten and smooth. An ultra-nourishing oil seals in hydration, leaving skin supple and smooth.
Autumn is a beautiful time to embrace self-care and pamper yourself in preparation for the colder months ahead. By incorporating these spa self-care tips into your fall routine, you'll not only look radiant but also feel rejuvenated and ready to relish in the comforting embrace of fall's beauty.
