Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA – We all do it sometimes . . . . neglect the often small actions that we can take to make our lives better. Whether it’s due to system overload or confusion about what will actually make a difference in our lives, procrastination can leave us wishing that we had taken action. Take a look at this great over-all list of simple actions Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA found in Men’s Fitness Magazine to learn how some extremely small steps can make a huge difference in your life.
Look & Feel Your Best — All Day! – Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA
10 grooming tips to help you stay at the top of your game – Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA
by Renee Marchione
A smooth face doesn’t start and end with shaving cream. Use pre- and post-shave products. You’ll notice fewer ingrown hairs, less razor-burn irritation, and longer-lasting shaves. (visit Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA’s Aveda store to find some fantastic choices in products!)
Dandruff isn’t a good look on anyone—especially men. Product buildup, a dry scalp, and even stress are just a few reasons why flaking occurs. Thoroughly rinse out your hair with specialized shampoos from Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA, and you can keep this problem under wraps.
Since you’re already applying a moisturizer from Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA (right?) to your face, why not use one with SPF? Your everyday commute and dog walks can still cause sunburns, premature aging—and increase the risk of cancer.
In their 20s and 30s, no one wants to look like Steven Tyler, so start taking care of your skin now. Sport sunglasses to prevent sun damage (and excessive squinting), drink lots of water to keep hydrated, and use eye creams to prevent premature wrinkling.
- Stop lugging around a shampoo, face wash, and body wash in your gym bag. Simply throw an all-in-one product from Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA in your bag or keep one in your locker, and you’re golden. An added bonus, everyone from Old Spice to Jack Black makes them.
- Gym rats and weekend warriors have all dealt with athlete’s foot at some point in their lives. Pack a pair of flip-flops in your bag to wear in the showers and around the locker room. Keep your feet clean and dry especially in between your toes. If you’ve already been infected, no worries—there are medicated powders and creams you can use to help heal.
- If you can smell your own cologne, you have too much on. Use a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol and water to gently pat over any areas where you may have OD’d on your scent.
- Those nose hairs that creep out every now and then may not bother you so much, but they will bother your girl. With so many tools available right at the drugstore (Remington Personal Trimmer, $10), there’s no longer any excuse for an extra-long hair growing from your ears and nose.
- Growing a beard? Don’t use bar soap to clean it. Unless you’re going for hobo chic, leftover soap scum will cause your facial hair to look dirty. Use a hair conditioner from Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA instead. The conditioner’s cleaning ingredients will wash away bacteria and instantly soften your beard. And always pat dry with a towel.
- A little hair product goes a long way. Want a shiny, wet look? Try using a gel product from Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA. If you want to sport a more messy, bed-head look, use a pomade to work through your locks.

* “Talking to you guys about the new control force (from Bella Sirena Hair Salon Kirkland). Love it, it’s great stuff, we’ve been using it a lot to put hair up. You know, where Air Control is a bit of a texture spray, Control Force (available at Bella Sirena Hair Salon Kirkland) provides a solid, firm hold.

Hair Salons Kirkland: Prep, Style, Finish! Product plus technique gets results: Aveda Men.
The as one of the top hair salons Kirkland, Bella Sirena Salon knows that men’s scalps can produce twice as much oil as women’s and dirt and dead cells can build up in the leftover sebum, so let’s use Aveda Men Pure-Formance shampoo and conditioner together to sooth the scalp and get clean, conditioned, healthy looking hair. They’re great for daily use. As one of the top Aveda approved hair salons Kirkland, Bella Sirena carries the full line of Aveda products.
Moisture content matters: if hair is too dry, it’s hard to apply styling products evenly, but if hair is too wet, it dilutes the products and compromises performance. It’s also important to choose the right styling product for you hair’s length, texture, pigment and your styling objective. Ask your Aveda stylist at Bella Sirena hair salons Kirkland for advice. To shape hair and add shine, use Aveda Men Pure-Formance Pomade, which gives firm, pliable hold and high-shine to the hair, for more formal finish that you can shape and reshape.
With concentrated Aveda products, a little goes a long way. These products are carried at your top-notch Aveda hair salons Kirkland such as Bella Sirena Salon. Vigorously emulsify the pomade between your hands. Then massage it into the hair from roots to ends, starting in the back where the hair is thickest. If you have longer hair, you can brush the pomade through the hair to ensure even application. Just do not over-brush, or you’ll flatten the hair. Shape the hair with your hands until you get the look you want. If you want more shine, you can comb through the hair. You’ll end up with the high shine and hold of traditional pomade, without the paraffin or petroleum base. Because the pomade is water-based, it’s must gentler on the scalp and it also washes out more easily.
Hair Salons Kirkland Tips: Finishing
To finish, use Aveda Men Pure-Formance aroma spray, with certified organic essential oils of spearmint, vetiver, and lavender. You can mist it on, or spray a little onto the chest or forearms; wherever you prefer.

If you haven’t checked them out yet, Bella Sirena Salon Spa Kirkland has some excellent products and services designed to help your skin look young and vibrant. However, as many people are aware, eating the right foods can work along with Bella Sirena Salon Spa Kirkland’s facials and Aveda skin products to get even better results. Take a look at this article from The Mayo Clinic for a list of foods you should be including in your diet:
Foods for healthy skin: Top picks
Question: What are the best foods for healthy skin?
from Lawrence E. Gibson, M.D.
Research on the best foods for healthy skin is limited. Still, antioxidant-rich foods seem to have a protective effect for the skin. Consider these skin-friendly foods:
- Carrots, apricots and other yellow and orange fruits and vegetables
- Spinach and other green leafy vegetables
- Beans, peas and lentils
- Fish, especially salmon
On the flip side, some foods seem to be associated with skin damage. For example, some research suggests that a diet high in fat and carbohydrates promotes skin aging.
Remember, many of the best foods for healthy skin also promote good health overall. Rather than focusing on specific foods for healthy skin, concentrate on a healthy diet in general. Drink plenty of water. Eat more fruits and vegetables. Trade red meat for fish. Choose low-fat or fat-free dairy products. Include nuts, seeds and beans in your favorite meals. Opt for whole-grain breads and pasta. Limit sweets. Strive for variety as you’re making healthy choices.
