A Dynamic Clearing Duo

Help your client fight acne with this easy add-on service.

Use the Clearing Ampoule by Rosa Graf!

This ampoule is used for the treatment of blemished skin, which tends to form comedones, papulae, and pimples. The clearing concentrate should be used directly after thorough cleansing or after deep cleaning. It contains lactic acid, which has a keratolytic effect, cleansing cucumber extract, and urea.

The active ingredients can develop its greatest effect when the concentrate is used prior to the appropriate mask. Apply first half under the mask.

Then use Acne Modeling Mask by Martinni!

This treatment gives an immediate cooling effect, calms inflammation, heals blemishes, prevents acne formation, and minimizes enlarged pores. Regulates excessive oil secretion, eliminates impurities, without stripping the skin of natural oils, and leaves skin clean and clear.

Then finish the other half of the ampoule before using massage cream and SPF!

Pro Tip: To boost results even more, add a quick high-frequency treatment! Application of high-frequency current promotes a cleansing antibacterial action, and the skin is left feeling energized, rosy, firm, refreshed, and noticeably softer.

Wipe Away Germs in Your Business!

Cold and Flu season is upon us! How are you protecting your employees and clients from germs that are bound to be about?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), hand sanitizer is an effective method to kill potentially deadly germs on the hands and reduces bacterial counts when used properly. Do you offer hand sanitizer in your business for your employees, clients, and visitors to use?

While hand sanitizer should not replace a good ol' hand washing, there is a time and place for its use. Strategically-placed hand sanitizers around your business will encourage your clients (and your employees!) to keep their hands clean throughout the season!

Our favorite is the Purell Individually-Wrapped Hand Sanitizing Wipes! They are easy to grab, easy to use, and will help keep everyone germ-free all winter long!

Facial Oil - The Winter Skin Saver!

Depending on your location, dry winter skin can be a concern for your clients. Do you have clients who suffer from dry, itchy, red or irritated skin from cold, wind and other weather situations?

Retailing something as simple as a facial oil can be a lifesaver for your clients in between services. Adding them in as an option to a facial or massage service can be a great way to introduce the benefits of facial oil to your clients as well!

From using a carrier oil and adding essential oils for a customized facial massage or your own special signature blend to a variety of prepackaged oils, it can easily be incorporated into your line up!
