Winter Blah’s to Ooh-La-La’s! | Winter Beauty Remedies

As Elizabeth Ries from Twin Cities Live says, “January is my least favorite time to see myself on camera”. With the freezing cold, harsh winds and heat blasting us, our entire body suffers from winter blahs. Simonson’s Salon & Spa has services, products and preventative measures you can utilize to save your face, hair, body and nails!



Dry – Dull – Dehydrated Face

In-Spa Treatment: HydraFacial

With three specialized treatments and as one of the only Twin Cities locations that treat both the face and neck, you can find the exact service you need for your skin. This is the ultimate, cleansing, exfoliating and hydrating facial that leaves you with instant results that last! It also helps to protect your skin, remove dirt and debris, as well as stimulate collagen production for a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles!

At Home Care:

Rhonda Allison’s Drop of Essence is perfect for all skin types and provides hydration, healing and allows other ingredients to penetrate deeper into the skin for enhanced performance. You can combine this serum to other serums, moisturizers or use it by itself to retain your skin’s moisture and create a barrier against the elements.
Environ’s Hydrating Oil Capsules are also great for all skin types and include antioxidants and retinol, which renews your skin cells for firmer, more healthy-looking skin. These little pearl-like capsules are a burst of hydration for your skin and are also highly recommended by Simonson’s Salon & Spa Founder, Kylee Simonson, for their anti-aging benefits on the face and décolleté.
Environ’s Super Moisturizer, for those who need a little extra moisture this Super Moisturizer can be combined with the Hydrating Oil Capsules, Drops of Essence or used separately.

Preventative Measures:

We always recommend applying your serums and moisturizers to your skin within 1-2 minutes after cleansing to help create a barrier that locks moisture next to your skin. To increase collagen production, add WithinUs Collagen powder to your smoothies, coffee or tea.


Dry – Damaged – Frizzy Hair

In-Salon Treatment: Olaplex Treatment

Add this treatment to any hair cut or coloring service to help prevent damage and repair chemically-treated hair.

At Home Care:

Olaplex No. 4 & No. 5 Bond Maintenance Shampoo & Conditioner, use these bond maintenance shampoo and conditioners to help keep your hair healthy. This system uses a patented system to repair damaged and broken bonds in the hair on a molecular level, leaving you with soft, shiny and healthy hair.
Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector is an at-home treatment that reduces breakage, visibly strengthens hair and improves its looks and feel. You can use it once per week or as needed to keep hair strong, healthy and shiny!

Preventative Measures:

Protect your hair from damage by always using a heat protectant on your hair. Kevin Murphy Heated Defense is best when applied to wet hair, while Moroccanoil Perfect Defense can be applied to wet or dry hair. For the Unite lovers out there, we recommend pairing Unite 7Seconds Detangler, which adds moisture, prevents fly-aways and works as a detangler, with Unite 7Seconds Glossing Spray, to add shine and help reduce heat damage and fly-aways.



Dry – Rough – Flaky Skin

In-Spa Treatment: Luxe Body Revive

Known as the “Facial for the Body”, this ultimate body treatment detoxifies, exfoliates and hydrates your dull, dehydrated skin using premier facial products on the body. These products harness well-documented health, such as black mulberry extract, which has anti-aging properties and is full of antioxidants that protect your skin. This treatment leaves your body smoother, firmer and more radiant-looking!

Environ Derma-Lac Lotion uses several ultra-moisturizers, like Lactic Acid and Urea, to improve your skins texture, tone and to assist in the natural exfoliation function of your body. This product can be used morning and night to visibly soften your skin for a more supple-looking body.

Environ Body Oil is key to nourishing, hydrating and relieving the appearance of dry and sun-damaged skin.

Environ Body Care Before and After

Use Environ Derma-Lac Lotion & Environ’s Body Oil in conjunction to improve fine lines, even your skin tone and for results that showcase young-looking skin!


Cracked – Dry – Calloused Feet

In-Spa Treatment: Sole Therapy Pedicure

Our Sole Therapy Pedicure utilizes, UREA, a component that increases your skin’s water-binding capacity by softening the top layer of your skin, as well as aiding in the removal of dead skin cells.

At Home Care:

Baby Foot Peels use fruit acid to penetrate dead skin cells where they assist in loosening and breaking down the bond of the dead cells, layer by layer. This results in the peeling that is often associated with Baby Foot and leaves only fresh new “baby” soft skin!
VOESH CBD Collagen Socks utilizes hemp-derived Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil to add intense moisture. The collagen in the socks will visibly restore youthfulness, while the CBD provides muscle relaxation to help soothe your tired feet.


Preventative Measures:

Before bed, apply BeeSpa Hand & Foot Cream to your hands or feet for a miracle, softening effect overnight!
