Wax On, Wax Off has Never Been Easier: Introducing Hard Wax Tabs!

Getting waxed is never comfortable, but there is nothing worse than laying on the table with your esthetician  picking at the edge of the wax strip with her nail, trying to get an edge to grab and pull. TALK ABOUT AGONY...not only for the client, but for the esthetician too! Waxing is an art, and estheticians want to be skilled at their art. But sometimes, you just don't leave a thick enough edge when applying the wax. 


I know personally, I love using hard wax, but I am completely incompetent when it comes to leaving a thick enough edge. I end up scratching and chipping the wax off my skin, instead of firmly pulling it off and removing the hair with it! There is some sort of "Swoosh and Swish" motion that you have to do with your wrist during hard wax application that just eludes me...and I know I am not the only one out there!


Now, even if I am inept at applying hard wax, I can avoid the "Chip and Scrape" method, and so can you! Pure Spa Direct recently added "Hard Wax Tabs" to their selection, and they are the coolest waxing accessory yet! If you love the results you get with using hard wax, but have a hard time applying it well, these are absolutely the answer! A Hard Wax Tab is simply a small plastic tab you stick on the end of the wax strip, immediately after you apply the wax. As the wax cools, the tab sticks to the wax. When it is cooled, simply grab the tab, and pull! So easy, and so much less painful! Using Hard Wax Tabs for sensitive waxes (especially Brazilians!) will help you wax your clients faster with less pain - every waxer's dream! Take a look at the video below to see how Hard Wax Tabs makes your service so much easier!

Ceramic Beauty Globes... as Katy Perry said: "You're hot then you're cold..."

Ceramic Beauty Globes... they make me think of Katy Perry lyrics...
"You're hot then you're cold
You're in then you're out
You're up then you're down
You're yes then you're no"
OK, I'm just being silly, but when we added Ceramic Wonder's Ceramic Beauty Globes and I saw you can use them hot or cold for facials and other treatments, I REALLY was singing that song in my head. Anyway, these amazing easy-to-clean ceramic globes are the ultimate new and innovative therapeutic tools for beauty and health purposes. Their ceramic composition allows them to maintain the desired temperature, whether heated or chilled.

Details:
  • 4 piece set
  • Maintains desired temperature
  • Can be heated or chilled
  • Roll the globes over the entire face and neck for 3-5 minutes
  • Helps to soothe the skin and prevent redness after waxing, electrolysis, or acne treatments
  • Stimulates blood circulation
  • Use during facial massages
  • Great for puffy eyes, headaches, and migraines
  • Helps to set make-up

All that aside, they are made in a 300 year old ceramic factory in Estonia! In the year 1718, Peter the Great visited Tallinn in Estonia and fell in love with the city. So, he decided to build a royal palace for himself and his wife, Katherine. Since mass amounts of bricks were required for the construction, the Russian Tsar ordered that a bricks-producing factory be built in the neighboring island of Koply, where a large natural source of blue clay had been discovered.

This factory is what is known today as the Tallinn Art Ceramic Factory and the Ceramic Beauty Globes are made there... pretty cool! Or maybe just cool to me since I'm just a history geek. :-)

Creating & Maintaining the Perfect Sunless Tan!

Summer is around the corner, and as the temperature is heating up, our clothes are becoming lighter.  We are showing more skin and want to look appealing in our tanks, skirts, and dresses. Sun and sun damage (as scarily shown in the left pic) is old news, and sunless tanning (as beautifully shown in the right pic) is all the new!  Every year at Pure Spa Direct, our Sunless Tanning clients, inquiries, and orders are growing dramatically.

Out with the Old...
...In with the New!
One of the most common inquires we receive is regarding the maintenance of the Sunless Tanning Equipment.  Like every other appliance in our world, wear and tear is normal with every day use.  Aside from using the best Sunless Solutions on the market by Pure Sunless and Extended Vacation, the key factor in "Sunless Tanning Excellence" is also the equipment.  Keeping your equipment up-to-date, and clean is imperative in creating that perfect sunless tan. So how do you best maintain your equipment?

See below for some answers to our most frequently asked questions:

1) How Often Should I Clean My Spray Gun?
  • It is important to clean your Spray Gun DAILY!  Many clients ask if the gun needs to be cleaned after each use, and while it is recommend, we suggest you clean the gun each time it is put to rest. If you do 1-2 tans a day (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) then yes, the gun must be cleaned after each use. The key factor to remember is anytime the gun is put to rest, it should be cleaned to ensure maximum results. 
2) How Do I Clean My Spray Gun?  (General Instructions for Cleaning MaxiMist Units - other units may vary)
Steps:
1) Disconnect the Spray Gun from the Air Hose 
2) CAREFULLY unscrew the Solution Cup. If there is left-over solution in the cup, either close the cup with a lid, or pour the remaining solution into a proper storage container.  *You may pour the extra solution back into it's original solution container, as long as it is done immediately!* 
3) Rinse the solution cup under running warm water until it is clean.
4) Fill the cup to 50ml (1-2 ounces) with warm water. Reconnect the spray gun to the air hose, and turn on the turbo unit. Direct the spray gun to a safe area and spray the clean water through the gun, until the cup is empty.
5) Turn off the turbine unit, disconnect the spray gun and unscrew the cup. Be sure to wipe all exposed areas dry.
*CAUTIONDo not submerge the spray gun under water. Do not rinse the tip and air cap while they're connected to the gun, as water may collect under the air the cap and plate, causing mineral buildup.
6) To clean the Solution Cup, unscrew the cup lid and remove the Air Cap Ring. Rinse the threads under warm running water, and then wipe down, till they are clean and dry.
7) Remove the Air Cap. Rinse it under warm running water, and wipe it down till it's clean and dry.
8) (if necessary) Remove the air distributor plate and rinse it under warm running water as well.
*To Re-install the three pieces, just reverse the removal procedure. 

**For Additional Maintenance (Recommended weekly):  
1) Remove the  Solution Nozzle  for rinsing. The Solution Nozzle  can be easily removed by placing the tip of an adjustable wrench or spanner on the two flat areas of the nozzle, and twist counter-clockwise to remove it.  *CAUTION:  There is a gasket (seal) around the thread of the solution nozzle, that must be re-installed correctly or leakage will occur!
2) The solution needle can also be removed for additional maintenance. To remove it, turn the solution flow screw counter-clockwise until it comes out of the spray gun.  *CAUTION:  Needles are very fragile! Be careful when removing the 'solution flow screw' as there is a small spring around the needle. Do not lose it. This is important to the operation of the spray gun. Set the spring aside and pull the trigger all the way back until you can grab the needle with your finger tips. Pull the needle out from the back of the spray gun. Once removed, rinse under warm running water, clean and dry it. Re-install by reversing the removal procedure.... Viola! Your spray gun should be perfectly clean and ready for the next use! 

2) How Often Should I Clean the Filter? And How Do I Do It? 
1) It is IMPORTANT to clean the filter weekly. This is important to allow your turbine motor to breathe freely, as a clogged/dirty filter will only cause the turbine to overheat and burn out prematurely.
2) To clean the filter (only applies to units with a removable filter), locate it, remove it, rinse it under warm water and simply replace it. *Hint- If your filter becomes damaged, just go to your local pet store, as you may replace it with aquarium or pond filter.  It will just need to be cut to the appropriate size.

3) When Should I Replace My Sunless Tanning Equipment?
1) Simple answer... when it stops working correctly.  By the time any of the units we carry stop working, you would have performed so many tanning services, you would know when something wasn't right.
2) Most of our equipment offers a one year warranty and we do sell replacement parts.

If you have any questions on any of our Sunless Tanning Equipment or would like to purchase replacement parts, just contact Pure Spa Direct Customer Service Today!

Witch Hazel: Nature's ALL-Purpose Skin Purifier

I recently discovered the major benefits of Witch Hazel while on a quest for a new facial toner.  As a person with combination oily and dry skin, finding a toner that removes oil while not drying out my skin has been a challenge.  The majority of drug store toners contain chemicals and alcohol which can strip the skin rather than tone it, but witch hazel is different!

Witch Hazel is an all-natural astringent that is derived from a flowering shrub located in North America, Japan and China.  For centuries, people across the globe have been using the extract from the bark and leaves to clean and calm a multitude of skin issues including cuts, bruises, swelling and bug bites.  Since witch hazel is high in 'Tannins,' otherwise known as 'Tannic Acid,' it naturally causes swollen blood vessels to contract and shrink.

Here are just a few examples of how you can implement Witch Hazel into your services:

  1. Facial toner for all skin types, including normal, oily, dry, combination and acneic skin.
  2. Topical treatment of acneic and blemished skin.
  3. Pre-depilatory cleanser.
  4. Post-depilatory skin soother and cleanser.
  5. Varicose vein treatment.
  6. Aftershave treatment for men.

Click HERE to see our full selection of Witch Hazel!

**Insiders Tip**  The most beneficial witch hazel is the type that is non-distilled AND alcohol-free.  My favorite line is by Humphreys Pharmacal Inc - Check out the Cucumber & Melon Redness-Diffusing Witch Hazel Astringent.

    Saving Face - The BEST SPF for Anti-aging, Beautiful Skin and Flawless Make-up


    This is Simply THE BEST Broad Spectrum Sunscreen I have EVER used!!!

    Spa Pros: Retail This!
     ONLY $36 Retail - Your Clients
    Will LOVE their results!
    Call for your Pro Price.
    10 years ago  I asked a famous NYC Plastic Surgeon for advice on the best progressive product, treatment or cream for staying young.  I prepeared myself for him to tell me about some $700 cream or $800 laser treatment.  Instead, he leaned over and whispered, "Wear SPF, every single day of your life!"  I took that message to heart and have been experimenting with facial sunscreens for my delicate, sensitive and acne prone facial skin ever since.  There are plenty of great SPF's for the body, but my experience with finding "the perfect" SPF for the face has been a challenge - until now!  I am on my 3rd bottle of Dr. Sadick AM Protectoin Cream... and my skin has NEVER looked, felt or glowed better.

    My experience with other facial SPF's are that they make me terribly oily or they breakout my combination skin. Regardless of oil-free claims or ads for "lightweight" consistency - I have found that most prestige brand SPF's have left me and my make-up slippery, greasy and bumpy after only a few hours of wear.

    Dr. Sadick's Am Proection SPF offers 4 layers of protection from external and environmental stresses including UV radiation and free radicals. AM PROTECTION cream is the only skincare product you need to start your day. The Bio-Protect4™ Complex provides four comprehensive layers of protection from external elements:

    Counter top Ads for you Spa,
    Salon or Beauty Retail Business

    - Broad spectrum SPF 20 UVA/UVB protection
    - Potent anti-oxidant cocktail
    - Detoxification and protection from environmental pollutants
    - Up to 24 hours of skin hydration
    - Oil Free Formulation

    What I have noticed (and dozens of my associates as well) - Use of this product instantly improves skins appearance, tone, and texture!  This AM Protection cream uses a technology called Active Glow™ that is a combination of light diffusing pigments and barrier protectants that instantly improve the appearance of skin tone, texture and radiance - seeing is believing! 

    A Built in make-up primer means that my make-up stays on ALL DAY!  Even through 6 hours of plane travel and 12 hour work days!!  It even holds my mineral make-up in place PERFECTLY during ZUMBA!!  I can't say enough wonderul things about this product!!!

    Key Ingredients:

    -Biocell-SOD. Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is an enzymatic antioxidant well known for neutralizing the superoxide free radicals.  SOD has the ability to enhance sunscreen products and protect against the damaging effects of the environment

    - Concentrated Olive Plant Extract <--Plant extract - not oil

    - Antioxidant capacity almost double green tea extract and 400% higher than vitamin C.
    Protects and detoxifies the skin from environmental pollutants
    Red Algae.  Amino acids produced from red algae help to maintain the smoothness of the skin and prevent premature skin aging by protecting against UV radiation-induced lipid oxidation.

    If your clients are looking for a SUPERIOR SPF product, day cream, make-up primer and anti-oxidant treatment in ONE... THIS IS IT! And the retail price to your spa clients is only $36.  Salon & Spa Professionals may order WHOLESALE for resale.  Call us 800-434-0018 or go online today:http://www.purespadirect.com/AM-Protection-Cream-SPF-20-0-5-oz-AM-PC-p/kg-212101.htm

    Mini Hot Towel Steamer

    I'm Tiny and I Know It!
    A few weeks ago I was at the New York IECSC - International Esthetics, Cosmetics and Spa Conference and while walking the show floor, I saw Beauty Pro's Mini Hot Towel Steamer, laughed and thought why would you want that little thing when you could get larger hot towel cabi for about the same price.  Later that day, a co-worker and I were discussing the new products we saw at the show and the Mini Hot Towel Steamer came up... and it was then that it dawned on me. The very thing I laughed at was the very reason to buy it... IT IS SMALL.

    Many estheticians battle with a struggle of space in their treatment rooms vs. equipment needs and wants.  So for many, SMALL IS GOOD.  We revisited the idea and added them to Pure Spa Direct's offerings.

    Quick, easy, energy efficient, portable and compact. Go from dry towels to hot, moist towels in just 15 minutes. Ideal for small treatment rooms. Auto shut off and run-dry controls make this a safe and effective steamer for your spa! Accommodates up to (6) 14” x 27” hand towels. 8” x 8” x 9”. Ideal for facials, salon work stations, portable for Mobile Therapists and great for Barbers offering wet shaves.

    Looking back, I feel silly I did not see the benefits immediately! Turns out, a mere 8" x 8" footprint is a good thing!

    Soak Your Way to Sexy Nails with Nail Soakers

    No matter how much I moisturize my hands, my cuticles are forever dry and cracked.  While talking with my grandmother and aunts the other day, they all described the same exact issue how much it frustrated them.  We do not know if its genetic, but it is probably more closely related to fact that we are always cooking and cleaning.

    If we are going through this issue, its very likely that so are you and your clients.  Ann intensive treatment is necessary so as to treat the dry cuticles and finger tips.  A perfect item to introduce to your services and retail are Nail Soakers!

    Originally designed to simplify the nail enhancement soak-off process, people started to realize that these little tubes could be used for a variety of uses.  Fill with Sweet Almond Oil and have your clients fingers soak for a minimum of 15 minutes.  Another great option is to fill the soakers with Himalayan Salt and water for a hydrating and nourishing soak.

    Golden Hair Elixir - Beauty Beyond Morocco

    Orofluido
    Amazing New Shine Spray & Treatment Line
    I know that everything containing Moroccan Argan oil has been the rage for a few years now.  I have tried most of the oils, potions and serums and agree that there are some good products for hair and skin... but I have never been sold on the scent.  When I received samples of Orofluido, that all changed.  This new golden elixir is made with three beauty oils; Argan, Cyperus & Linseed.  The inspiration of this beauty concoction is based  the ancient beauty rituals of Cleopatra, ancient Egyptians and Phoenicians.  All prized for their beautiful skin and hair, these 3 oils are the core of the exquisite mixture that is Orofluido.  I also love that this oil is golden in color.  I have used Moroccan Oil in the past and I feel that the orange / carrot color left brassiness on my platinum blonde hair after several uses.  I can't say for sure it was Moroccan Oil, but I know that when I stopped using it, the brassiness and red tones eased up.

    What I am also excited about is that this product smells AMAZING.  I love for my hair to smell good all day! Placing a tester of Orofluido out for clients to try is almost an effortless way to boost retail.  The product works immediately to shine and scent hair.  The shine it give is a combo of rich luster and radiance - not greasy.  The scent is intoxicating, you will be tempted to put it to your lips!  The notes of this luxurious line include;

    Amber
    Vanilla
    Patchouli-Sandalwood
    Red Pepper
    Cyclamen - Muguet
    Bergamont
    Orange Blossom

    It smells MAGICAL, and it performs beautifully on all hair types.

    Trying is BELIEVING!

    Order Orofluido at PureSpa.com today and start retailing this BEAUTIFULLY packaged, high performance line to your shine obsessed clients!!

    Provide More Than Relaxation for Your Clients - Help Cleanse Their Energies with Sound Therapy

    In recent years, spas have been embracing and expanding their holistic approach to include more treatments that focus not only on the physical body, but on the body's energy as well. Many of today's spa goers are interested in spas who offer a whole-body approach, and allow for spiritual and energetic "cleansing," as well as a deep tissue massage or European Facial.


    There are so many aspects to this whole-body approach, but one of the most popular is sound therapy. More and more resorts and spas are adding sound therapy components to their traditional services.


    Studies have found that sound and music have a profound effect on the human body. Physically, slow, calm rhythm in music can slow the heart rate, slow and deepen breathing patterns, and lower blood pressure, all of which assists a person in reaching a more relaxed, meditative state.


    How can you assist your clients in reaching the more relaxed or meditative state they crave when they come to your spa? Even the addition of small details, such as chiming Tingsha Cymbals at the beginning and end of a massage, or the careful selection of music that is played in your spa, will increase your client's level of relaxation. 


    Sound therapy for relaxation is known to stimulate the body and mind, as well as recharge the body's batteries. By using vibrational sound therapy, energy "blockages" are released, ensuring healing takes place on the deepest level by balancing the body's energy. 


    One popular instrument used in vibrational sound therapy is the Tibetan Singing Bowl. Technically classified as a type of bell, Singing Bowls are usually made of metal, with the bottom surface resting against the ground or table. Singing bowls are played by striking the rim with a padded mallet. To extend the sound and vibrations, singing bowls can also be played by slowly running the striker around the rim of the bowl. By maintaining even pressure as you run the striker around the rim of the bowl, the vibration will fill the bowl, and the sound will continue to grow until the bowl is singing at its fullest volume. Once this happens, you can vary your speed and pressure to transform the sound and intensity of the vibrations.


    Tibetan Singing Bowls are often used
    to achieve a deeper meditative state.
    Give your clients the opportunity to deeply cleanse their energies and clear their minds by playing the singing bowl for them at the beginning of a service, or even keep a singing bowl in your relaxation room for your clients to use! Clients will remember your spa as "the one that cleansed me!"

    Spa Retail: What’s Trending is $70 – and REALLY WORKS!

    Pure Spa Direct is so excited to be the chosen world distributor of Dr. Sadick Skincare.  Previously exclusive to Sephora, Pure Spa has the exclusive opportunity to offer the Sadick Park Avenue Prescription products, wholesale to beauty professionals.  This is an exciting opportunity for Spa, Salons, Estheticians and Dermatologists to be able to retail this blockbuster trio to their clients at an exceptional price.

    Sadick Dermatology
    Park Ave. Prescription Kit
    Retails in Spas for $70
    For over 25 years, Sadick Dermatology has developed professional strength skincare exclusively for their Park Avenue and Great Neck patients. Known to insiders as "The Park Avenue Prescription" this unique trio of products delivers a three-dimensional, structural approach to photo-aging and skin health is now available. Developed by Sadick’s panel of dermatologists, skincare experts and clinical researchers, they've combined the best scientifically-tested ingredients with decades of expertise and research.

    Skin care clients on Park Avenue have the same anti-aging questions and concerns as yours do. Dr. Sadick understands how the skin ages, and how to keep it looking its best. When all three products are used together, this clinically proven approach to skincare addresses all visible signs of aging to help prevent and reverse environmental damage.

    What we love about this line – and we know you will too:

     1)   $$$$We hear from Spa & Salon owners all the time – and we understand you are TIRED of stocking dozens of retail SKUs at ridiculous retail price points and low margins.  Clients are not as receptive to trying $150+ creams or serums as they once were.  Clients want results, and a price point that is reasonable.  The Sadick Park Ave Prescription Kit (3 products) Retails for $70.  That’s less than most spa retail eye creams!  Best of all, seriously visible improvement is seen in the skin in just 28 days! All clients want results!

     2)      Media Exposure. This line WORKS – and the media is taking notice with a big spotlight on the Sadick Park Ave. Prescription!  The 3 products have been featured on The Doctors, Fox News, InStyle Magazine, TODAY, Prevention Magazine Beauty Awards, CBS. O Magazine, to name a few!

     3)      Brilliance behind the brand:  Who is Dr. Sadick?
    I bet you know who Dr. Sadick is, even if you do not recognize his name! If you have heard of Retin-A or low-dose antibiotics for acne, Rogaine or Propecia for Hair Regrowth, Latisse for eye lashes, Restalyne, Juvederm, Sculptra, Radiesse, Botox, Dysport, IPL and lasers used for hair removal OR rejuvenation, Fraxel - then you have heard of a treatment that, in part, came from Dr. Sadick's research. Dr. Sadick is one of the world's most respected dermatologists, and holds 5 board certifications in internal medicine, dermatology, cosmetic surgery, hair restoration surgery, and phlebology. Dr. Sadick was also the Global Medical Advisor for Christian Dior, and has been involved in product formation for global companies including Avon, L’Oreal, La Prairie, and Estee Lauder.
