Each year for the past 20 years, Sun Valley has kicked off summer with a focus on health, wellness, and fun at the Sun Valley Wellness Festival. Spanning the long Memorial Day weekend, this year from May 26 to 29, it is the perfect start to the season, inviting participants to think deeply and breathe deeply during a wide range of programming. There truly is something for everyone. The Sun Valley Wellness Festival was started in 1997 with the mission of inspiring people to live healthier lives. To that end, they bring to Sun Valley each year the best of the best across a mind boggling...
During this first full week of a brand new year, many people's thoughts are on self-improvement. While much of the focus is on resolutions like losing weight, exercise and eating well (check back to this blog later this week for more on that), now is also the perfect time to commit to a new skin care regime or to treating yourself to a little well-deserved pampering. There is no better place to keep these resolutions than the Sun Valley Salon and Day Spa in the Sun Valley Village.
Sun Valley is the best place to be outdoors all winter long but all that skiing, snowboarding and cross country can be hard on your skin. Ours is a dry and very sunny climate – a combination that cries out for great skin and hair care.
According to Spa Manager Kathleen Stanley, many people flock to the salon in January, ready for a professional facial and products to keep their skin healthy and gorgeous.
Pop into the Sun Valley Salon and Spa for some well deserved pampering and to start the New Year off right.
"This time of year is definitely about facials," Kathleen said. "If you treat yourself to one service, a facial is very worthwhile. Among the most popular options offered are a Spa Prestige Ogenage Facial and an Ultra Moisturizing Facial but our great staff tailors each appointment to a client's specific needs."
The special Spa Prestige Ogenage Facial is an 80-minute service promoting cellular renewal, repairing UV damaged cells, moisturizing and soothing. It promises to recover and reconstruct deeper skin layers by improving the cellular renewal process. The Ultra Moisturizing Facial is exactly that, and will remineralize and hydrate, bringing immediate comfort to the skin. All the facials are also very pampering and relaxing!
The Salon and Spa also sells a full line of premiere skin care products so the results of your appointment will last all year long. Featuring the world-famous Phytomer line, your esthetician will be happy to recommend a skin care regime that works for both your skin and your lifestyle.
A facial? Pedicure? Massage? All of the above?
In addition to a full menu of facials, the Salon and Spa offers other ways to start 2015 off right. Wonderful custom massages relax and rejuvenate and take your schedule into account. Busy? Pop in for 30-minutes of body work. Have longer? Enjoy the ultimate 90-minute massage. Therapists will work with you to determine which massage is best for your needs and be sure to ask about Sun Stone Hot Stone Therapy, too. There is truly no better end to a day on the slopes.
Beauty may be only skin deep, but pretty nails are always a mood lifter. The Salon offers all types of manicures and pedicures for both men and women that will leave you relaxed and well-tended.
"There are lots of other services that will help you start the New Year feeling great," Kathleen said. "We offer comprehensive waxing services, acupuncture and even makeup lessons and applications featuring the mineral-based Jane Iredale line. It doesn't need to be a special occasion to have your makeup done."
If a new look is on your list for 2015, perhaps a new, modern haircut or color is in the cards. Again, let the professionals at the Salon create a new you. "Highlights always brighten things up, especially in the winter," Kathleen said. "They instantly make you look less tired!"
The new luxury spa facility is set to open early this summer and will add countless ways to stay beautiful, healthy and relaxed
Everyone at the Salon and Spa is also eagerly awaiting the early summer opening of Sun Valley's new 20,000-square-foot luxury spa that is part of the exciting renovation of the Lodge. Dozens of treatment rooms and highly trained estheticians will continue to offer top skin care and salon services with the addition of body treatments (think detoxifying body wraps and scrubs) and countless wonderful ways to look and feel your very best.
The Salon is open Monday through Saturday from 9:30 am to 5 pm and the Massage Center takes appointments from 8:30 am to 7:45 pm To book your appointment, please call (208) 622-2160.
You shopped, you wrapped, you decorated, you cooked, you cleaned, you hosted. Isn't it time to make some time to pamper yourself? Cheers to a beautiful beginning to 2015!
