Remaining Radiant Throughout The Winter Months

Winter has officially arrived, and it can be easy to feel stressed with all of the traveling, shopping, cooking, and cleaning that’s being done in preparation for the holidays. As an Anna Maria Island salon and spa, we understand the importance of de-stressing and looking your very best during the holidays. Here are some key ways in which you can take care of yourself in order to remain radiant and happy throughout the crazy winter months.

Hair Trends

A great way to remain beauty-conscious is to keep track of winter hair trends. During the winter, many decide to go darker in color. Sport a dark color with some warm undertones, or consult our expert stylists for some advice on hair design. Whatever it is that you decide you want, Acqua Aveda can get it done. Visit us for a full color, highlights, or a haircut in Holmes Beach.

Keeping Hydrated Skin

As skin care professionals, we know the threats that winter months pose to your skin. While being in Florida lessens the dramatic effect that winter has on your skin, you may still experience increased dryness during these months. The best ways to combat dry skin are to moisturize more and seek a specialist. As a solely natural spa, we treat your skin with only the best products, and offer a variety of facials that will leave you and your skin feeling rejuvenated.

Staying Tan

During the winter months, it is easy to let your skin color fade, leaving you with a pale look. While there is nothing wrong with pale skin, tan skin may give you the glow that you are looking for. Our all-natural sunless tanning services can give you the natural color that you desire in just minutes.


Perhaps one of the best ways to remain radiant during the winter months is to take a break from your hectic schedule. What better way to reduce stress than by receiving a relaxing massage on Anna Maria Island? We offer various types of massages, all of which are meant to relax and rejuvenate you and improve your overall well-being.

Protect Your Hair & Skin This Summer with Organic, Eco-Friendly Beauty Products

Now that summer is in full swing, many people are spending more time outdoors enjoying the beautiful weather in the summer sun. But all that time spent outdoors in the sun can wreak havoc on both your skin and hair. With culprits like the sun’s damaging UV rays and the chlorine put in swimming pools, a great deal of damage can be done to both your skin and hair.

Whether you’re at our resort spa on Anna Maria Island, laying poolside or spending time in your own backyard, it’s important to protect your hair and skin from the damaging effects UV rays, chlorine, and more. At Acqua Aveda Salon, Spa, and Store, we only use the highest quality, natural ingredients in our beauty products. Our products are designed to revitalize and rejuvenate skin & hair that is subjected to the harsh effects of the environment.

Why Use Organic, Eco-Friendly Products on Your Skin and Hair?

It’s very important to care for the world we live in when choosing which beauty products to purchase. Using botanically-based skin and hair care products is beneficial to the planet and to the health of your skin and hair. What you put on your body should be as healthy and natural as what you put in it. Just as it’s best to steer clear of foods laden with artificial ingredients and harmful chemicals, it is also best to avoid chemically-laden products to enhance your hair and skin. There are all types of natural ingredients that do an excellent job of keeping your hair and skin healthy and looking its best.

All natural, organic skin & hair products do not contain extra chemicals that can be harmful to you and the earth. From shampoos to skin nourishing body lotions, organic products provide you all the benefits you need without leaving a harmful footprint on our environment.

5 Eco-Friendly Beauty Tips

Tips From Your Anna Maria Island All Natural Spa & Salon

Here at Acqua Aveda Salon, Spa, & Store we know how important taking care of your skin, hair, and nails is. We also know how important it is to be eco-friendly. Fortunately, since we specialize in all-natural, environmentally friendly spa and salon treatments, we know many tips and tricks on how to stay looking vibrant without harming the environment. With our efforts to respect and preserve our earth, here are the top five tips for staying radiant while being environmentally friendly.

5. Read Labels Carefully

From bigger products like shampoo and body lotions, to smaller items like chap sticks, products can often contain chemicals or orther harmful ingredients. Things like parabens and phthalates can be very toxic to your body and the environment. The more natural the ingredients are, the better it will be for you and your skin in the future.

4. Sustainable Products & Tools

Body care treatment

Did you know that shampoo and conditioner bottles, toothpaste boxes and other product containers you find throughout your bathroom can be recycled? Be sure to recycle what you can, when you can. Many make up companies will gladly take packaging back to be recycled as well. It never hurts to ask! Furthermore, when choosing your make up tools, try using brushes that have been crafted from sustainable materials and have synthetic bristles. Not only do these types of bristles blend better, but they are less likely to become damaged by products you use and are a whole lot easier to keep clean.

3. Eco-Friendly Showers & Blow Drying

Showerheads typically release 25 liters of water per minute, so taking shorter showers can help conserve a great amount of water. Another way to conserver water would be to take full body showers less frequently if possible. Utilizing an all-natural dry shampoo can help with keeping your hair clean without having to use water. Minimizing the number of times you blow-dry your hair can also help conserve electricity, which can not only be beneficial for the environment, but can also help protect your locks from damage and breakage due to overuse of such tools!

2. Use All Natural Oils

Simply massage a few drops into your wet hair, put a shower cap on and let it sit for 30 minutes. Shampoo twice, rinse out and that’s it! You don’t even need to use conditioner! Facial oil is also a great alternate to traditional facial moisturizers. All-natural facial oils do not contain extra chemicals that can be harmful for your face and the earth (sensitive or regular). The oils penetrate your layers of derma, which can leave your skin feeling smooth and not greasy. Other natural moisturizers include argon oil, maracuja oil and any other plant oil.

1. Go Organic

Our number one tip on how to stay beautiful longer while remaining eco-friendly is to go organic. From chap stick all the way to the shampoo you use, and everything in between. All natural products still give the same benefits without leaving a harmful-foot print on our environment.
