Bliss hair, skin & body works

It’s another successful year at Bliss and we want to show our appreciation! On October 14 from 4:00 to 7:00 Bliss will be hosting an open house for all clients and potential clients to come and visit the shop. We will be offering free mini manicures, free paraffin dips, and free high frequency treatments, along with lots of food and drinks. We will also be giving away a Gift Certificate to the salon. Stephanie Brewer, Bliss’s only master esthetician, will be offering free clinical skin care consultations for anyone interested. We welcome everyone to come and learn some new beauty secrets! Any appointment booked at the open house will receive a 10% off coupon to be used on any service or in stock product. We will also be hosting a Scentsy Candle party during our open house. Please come and join us. It will be lots of fun!

With the weather starting to change many people might notice a change in their skin and hair. Bliss has a full line of Biolage hair care products, a variety of Peter Thomas Roth and Raya skin care products, and a new bath and body line, Lomasi. We will also be getting new products just in time for all of your holiday shopping needs. New items will be arriving throughout the next month. Our technicians are available to provide expert advice on which products would be the best for you.

With fall and winter approaching, now is the time to focus your beauty treatment towards renewing and repairing. Summer tends to leave your skin, hair & body dry and damaged so now is the time to make up for all the abuse we put it through. We offer numerous treatments to repair. From deep conditioning hair treatments to exfoliating and hydrating facials and pedicures, we have something for everyone.

We all know the long term effects of sun damage to our skin, but do we all know how to help prevent those wrinkles and brown spots from showing years before we are ready? Stephanie, who has been in the field for 9 years, has seen it all. “The best thing you can do for your skin is wear sunscreen, drink water and exfoliate,” she says. This helps in prevention but what can we do to reverse the signs of premature aging? A Glycolic Acid Peel or a Microdermabrasion treatment will give you a deep exfoliation to help regenerate the skin cells to help keep you looking younger longer. In most cases it helps with the fine lines that start showing around the mouth and eyes. It also helps with acne and acne scars.

During the month of October we will be offering the Pumpkin Facial, pedicures and manicures, and for November we are offering our “Go Deep Special” which includes a deep conditioning hair treatment and a deep cleansing facial for $60. Also, the month of December we will introduce a new champagne facial for a holiday treat. Gift Certificates make great birthday and holiday gifts for anyone who loves to be pampered.

Community Nursing Services

There is an agency that has been providing in home health care since 1928. This goes back to the country nurse in the white cap driving the little black car, and coming to your house to take care of mumps, measles, sometimes child birth, or illnesses of the aging. The agency is Community Nursing Services; home health and hospice. CNS is a non-profit provider of home care; the oldest home care agency in the state, and Utah’s first licensed hospice company. The little black car and the white cap are gone but CNS is still sending skilled nurses, physical therapists, home help aids, or when necessary a complete hospice team into homes in and around Utah. CNS offers the latest in home technology and is Medicare, and Medicaid certified. Offices are located in Moab and Price.
