We all know the number one cause of aging is sun damage…this is why it is important to know the facts about SPF and sunscreens in order to protect our skin from the harmful UV rays. One of the most commonly asked questions at Blooming Moon is: “ If my make-up has SPF in it, does that mean I am protected for the rest of the day? And is it as effective as wearing sunscreen?”
The answer to this question totally depends on the SPF in your make-up, and how much sun exposure you are going to have. Your face should always have between 20-50 SPF. Any less than that you are going to have to reapply more frequently and there are many different opinions on SPF effectiveness when you use an SPF over 50. If you are doing outdoor activity where you might perspire or swimming–a reapplication is necessary. We always suggest hats, sunglasses and long sleeves as the next step for protecting your face and body after sunscreen application. If you are wearing a moisturizer under your makeup it might prevent the SPF in your makeup from being as effective. So our suggestion is to apply sunscreen first, before any makeup thus, insuring you are getting the best coverage possible.
- Epicuren Zinc Oxide Perfecting Sunscreen SPF 27
- Epicuren X-treme Cream Propolis Sunscreen SPF 45
- Epicuren Sport Treat UVA & UVB Sunscreen SPF30+
All three of these are great bases to any makeup regimen. Putting sunscreen on before your make up insures that it gets down to your skin cells and truly protects. Any makeup with SPF in it is an added bonus. If you plan on being out in the sun for an extended period of time and don’t want to refresh your makeup with SPF there is at least one company that makes a spray facial sunscreen (which we highly recommend only using facial sunscreen for your face) and makes reapplying effortless and no need to continue reapplying makeup.
Everyone should be wearing SPF on a daily basis whether you want to prevent aging or just age gracefully, sunscreen ensures our skin is beautiful inside and out.
An eyebrow wax, shape and tint is an easy way to enhance and polish your look!
An eyebrow wax is the perfect way to accent your favorite facial features!Whether you want to accent your gorgeous cheek bones, use an arch to add lift to your eyes, or even shape your face,
an eyebrow wax at Blooming Moon Spa is the best way to do any or all of those things.
With all this brow talk, you might not know what your optimal arch and shape is for your face- and that’s okay! Our professionally trained staff is here to help; we look extensively at your natural growth pattern, face shape and take into consideration your ideas. There are many different shapes and sizes of brows and figuring out the shape and size that makes you feel the most pretty and put together is what we LOVE to do!
There are six basic face shapes:
Each of the six face shapes has a brow shape that coordinates beautifully with it- for example a round face shape looks amazing when paired with a nicely arched brow, it elongates and thins the face while adding some definition to bone structure that tends to be downplayed in the round face.
No matter what your face shape there are always guidelines to follow when trying to achieve your perfect brow! One example is – The head of the brow should always begin at the bridge of your nose. This can be attained by matching up a pencil along the nose and taking off the hair on the opposite side of the brow.
As well as tweezing and waxing eyebrows, tinting your eyebrows and keeping the color crisp and fresh is just as important as shape because tinting offers you the ability to fill your brows naturally without applying make-up every day. Our trained estheticians can mix the perfect color for your hair to give you the most full and beautiful brows possible. Our naturally derived vegetable base dye won’t harm your skin, and stays for about four weeks. Tinting is one way to achieve honestly saying “I woke up like this”!
Beautiful Brows don’t just happen over night- they happen by having a routine.
For best results whether you have your eyebrows tweezed or waxed, every 4-6 weeks is best to maintain the optimal arch and shape. Tinting is best every 4 weeks to maintain the rich beautiful color.

This treatment is super soothing and as the wand glides gently over the skin, you experience a warmth and bliss which is tranquil. Meanwhile, your skin is plumping, tightening and improving overall! Ultrasound is perfect for those searching for a natural solution to aging, warding-off acne and overall skin health.

- Improving product penetration.
- Prevent onset of acne/blemishes

When ultrasound enters the body it reacts in various ways. Muscles, tendons and bones absorb ultrasound. Harder surfaces like bone will absorb and reflect ultrasound energy. All of these play a role in rising the total temperature in the surrounding tissue. This in turn dramatically increases oxygen to the cells, jumpstarting a process that produces fresh, new collagen and aids in the removal of waste products. Ultrasound also acts as an antibacterial cleansing, which also helps prevent the onset of acne and blemishes.
After a Blooming Moon Signature Facial you will feel relaxed, your skin will be rosy, glowing, firm, refreshed and noticeably softer – even after just one application!
