Ayurveda: A Beauty Regimen That's 5,000 Years Old!

...and still applicable! Ayurveda is a nearly 5,000 year old science, and one of the earliest adopters of the mantra that "beauty comes from within." This practice focuses on balancing the whole body to enhance beauty and even optimize energy!

The Ayurvedic approach to caring for the skin starts with knowing your dosha. There are three doshas:

Vata
This type of skin is thin, dry, fine, and extremely delicate.  Their skin is dry, cold to the touch and is not smooth. They are prone to premature wrinkling, especially since they are sun worshippers and tend to be the ones with the darkest tan on the beach.  Many different factors disturb vata including stress, excess activity such as aerobics or constant travel, improper diet, the season of autumn, and especially an irregular routine.

Pitta
This type of skin is susceptible to breakouts and rosacea.  They have combination skin with sensitivities to various allergens, and are most sensitive to the sun.  A few of the things that cause the skin get out of balance are stress, over working, excess mental activity, improper diet, hot sunny weather, and the summer season.

Kapha
This type of skin is thicker, oilier, and prone to acne. Some of the causes of a kapha imbalance consist of not enough activity or exercise, improper diet, cold winter weather, and seclusion.

Thinking about incorporating this age old principle into your spa? We have an amazing selection of Ayurvedic products to choose from! From skincare lines, to Copper Shirodhara stands, we could help you bring this new (but very old!) way of beauty into your spa! Take a look at the items we carry below:

Delicious Services For Spring: Papaya Facials!


Though papayas are technically available all year long, this delicious fruit tends to peak in the early summer. Get ahead of the curve, and start incorporating papaya facials and other services into your spa right before summer starts! Papayas contain many components that are good for the skin to help keep it healthy looking. Along with the Papain enzymes, it is good a source of antioxidants and nutrients such as Vitamin C, Vitamin B, carotenes, and flavonoids, fiber and minerals like magnesium and potassium which are all great for maintaining skin health!

Not sure where to begin? We have an amazing Papaya Purifying Enzyme Masque by June Jacobs that you can incorporate into facials! This clarifying enzyme masque contains a highly effective combination of papaya’s natural fruit enzyme, papain, with extracts of mango and pineapple, to gently dissolve dead surface impurities allowing nourishing oils of sweet almond and borage seed to penetrate, improving tone and elasticity of the skin. It also smells amazingly delicious, and I'm sure you're clients will love it! I also highly recommend our June Jacobs Papaya Enzyme Facial Treatment Kit - it includes everything you need to get started with your papaya facials.

Utilizing Small Spaces in Your Business

Small on space? Don't let that stop you from getting the equipment you need to take your business to the next level!

The key is making the area work for you to maximize work areas, especially if you offer multiple services in one room. You also want to be sure to not have the room look cluttered or unprofessional. Things like the Window Pane Room Divider with Shelves are great for small rooms. Separating an area helps the overall feel of the room, and you can use the shelves to tie into your decor, or to highlight retail items.


From portable skin scrubbers and hand held lamps to multifunction units - there's no reason to hold back just because you're working out of a room or smaller space! Don't forget space saving carts, folding stools, and room dividers to get the most out of the room!

With some imagination you can create a beautiful and functional space to give your clients an amazing experience!

Here are the newest additions that may just breathe new life not only to your music collection, but to the overall vibe in the area!
