Purge Your Pores

Do you have a client with troubled skin? If they desperately need to be rid of impurities, you can help! I like to think of it as "Pore Rehab!"


What is pore rehab?

Bioelements to the rescue!

It is an at-home treatment, to drastically improve your client's skin between appointments. Apply Bioelements Kerafole facial mask every day for one week. This intensive treatment plan will sweep away dulling cells, uncovering fresh, revitalized skin.

When used for 7 days straight (no skipping), skin will experience a complete "purge" of its impurities and emerge looking clearer, smoother and brighter.

Once pore rehab is completed, simply use 2 times a week, results will last 6 months!

What does it do?

Reveals a new radiance with this 10-minute, tingling face mask. Skin will appear brighter and feel smoother. Impurities gone. Pores improved. Skin revitalized!

Also available in a smaller 2.5 oz size!

Pucker Up

In the market for simple add on services? I got you covered!

Spring has sprung. It is officially prom and wedding season, and I know how busy salons and spas are. Injections, plump lips, and DIY lip treatments are all the rage. Why not add a simple collagen lip mask to any service?

My picks:

24K Gold Lip Collagen Mask

Uses: Re-plumps, reduce wrinkles and redefines the lip area

This mask is an immediate, radiance-enhancing, intense smooth out express treatment for lip contour. Dryness and fine lines diminish and the lips feel soft, rosy, and soothed. 24K Gold helps infuse moisturizing doses of Elastin and Acetyl Tyrosine to condition and ensure a smooth, plump pout. Stimulates blood flow, promotes fullness, and re-hydrates for a long-lasting effect. Protects the lips against UV light, and keeps the lips moist to prevent them from accelerated aging and emergence of dullness or fine lines.

Pro Tip: Pair with a 24k eye and neck mask for the full "gold treatment."

Collagen Crystal Lip Mask 

Helps to keep lips plump and supple. These Collagen Crystal Masks contain collagen, amino acids, and natural plant essences to help firm, tone, moisturize and hydrate!

Pro Tip: Offer a quick, natural sugar scrub for lips, then a mask for a luxurious lip treatment!

Mini Microdermabrasion Machine, Ideal for Beginners!

Microdermabrasion is a popular treatment in spas today. Crystal Microderm is a technique that uses a wand to spray fine crystals over the skin.

The Dermaglow EST is an affordable alternative for the budget-conscious skin care professional! Dermaglow EST is perfect for esthetic applications as it is powerful enough for the majority of applications


Everything in One Convenient Crystal Cartridge:

The Dermaglow EST uses a unique single crystal cartridge that contains enough crystals to perform 7-10 treatments. The crystals move from one side of the cartridge to the other and the entire cartridge is disposed of when empty.  


Details: 
  • Portable tabletop microdermabrasion
  • Automatic crystal flow
  • Analog display

The Moment of Truth: Skin Analysis

Skin goals... we all have them! Whoever your client is, and no matter what brought them to you, you want to ensure they are happy with their results... right?

How are you educating your clients? The consultation is so important! Before an esthetician even touches a client, they already have an idea of your skin type. By sitting down and talking about a clients skin goals, you are learning how you can help them. Everybody has different goals, and the experience is completely individual!

We have some helpful tools that will elevate your consultation, and show your clients the benefits of their facial.

1) Use a Wood's Lamp! My pick is the Wood's Lamp by Equipro.

A Wood's lamp is essentially a handheld black light, for your skin! It shows aspects of the skin that are not visible to the naked eye. Woods Lamps help gives a clearer view of what is happening. It will show oily skin, dead skin, sun damage, congested pores, dry skin, and other skin conditions.

Pro Tip: Use the woods lamp before and after a client's first microdermabrasion treatment, to show the difference just one treatment makes immediately. Then offer a discounted package for clients trying this service for the first time.

2) Use the Bio-Therapeutic BT-Analyze / Digital Skin Moisture Analyzer. This little tool is a powerhouse!

It uses advanced technology to calculate the moisture content levels of the skin. This device is used in multiple zones of the face to clearly define the needs of each area. Each reading is saved and displayed on the intelligent LCD screen so that it can be documented at the end of the analysis.

This tool gives quick scientific guidance to clients and begins the process of making them an active participant in understanding their skin function and need for specific products and services to reach their goals.

Pro Tip: Use this with your signature facial, before and after using your basic products. It is showing how well the professional products work, and helps boost your retail!

3) Sit down with the client, and use a Skin Scope! My pick is the Visiderm Skin Scanner by Equipro!

This Skin Scanner uses black light and magnification to show a variety of skin imperfections that are undetectable with the naked eye. Your client can simultaneously view what the technician sees. It can help sell your esthetic products and services by revealing skin conditions to the client.

Pro Tip: Boost client comfort during the consultation. Offer herbal neck wraps with infused water, to help relax your clients before the treatment, and after.

Benefits of Paraffin

Paraffin treatment is am effective and profitable option to offer clients, it is more than just add-on service. 

Providing your clients with a Paraffin Wax Bath has great benefits for your client’s skin and overall health.  Having your hands or feet dipped into a scented and calming Paraffin wax bath several times will not only relax your clients; it will revitalize the client's skin leaving them feeling soft and smooth.  An added benefit of a Paraffin Wax bath acts as another viable option of heat therapy to treat conditions like arthritis.  Helping to relieve the client’s pain by increasing blood flow, relaxing muscles and reducing the client’s stiffness in joints. 

Paraffin is a great natural treatment option to offer clients who want to add a pain reducing element to their treatment, while they are enjoying the rest of their pampering experience.

Strip Lash Special
Lashes are everything! And while I am great at my smokey eye, lash application is another story! Why not offer $10-$20 strip lash application?

Need some new tools? Take a look at our curling irons here.

Moisturizing Doesn’t End with Winter


Now that winter is coming to an end - finally - it does not mean that your clients forgo a normal moisturizing routine.  Applying moisturizer daily help lock in hydration.

Finding the right moisturizer for your clients' skin type and changing it up with the seasons should be vital to their skin care regimen.  

Not everyone remembers that perspiration is salty, and so as this dries it in turn dries out your skin.  Tie this in with the Summer Sun and there will be a noticeable difference in skin health.  

By educating your clients on the do’s and don’ts of healthy skin is integral in showing clients that skin health is not just for treatment days but every day.  Clients want to know what is best for their skin type, with the benefits of reducing wrinkle lines if practiced daily.

Check out some of our most popular Retail Moisturizers Below:

Health and Safety for Your Clients!

Protecting your clients and staff means a lot in this day an age.  The responsibility as a business owner to ensure the safety of his/her employees and, most importantly, your clients being catered to is so significant. Business owners should be actively involved in making sure their employees and clients are being provided with a safe, clean environment with the appropriate tools and protection to ensure a positive experience. 

The moment a client recognizes a lack of cleanliness, there is automatically a negative connotation for that business.  At Pure Spa Direct, we offer all the cleaning supplies you could need to make sure your Salon, Spa, Nail, and Beauty-related businesses are spotless.

Providing a safe environment for your employees is the next step.
Employees that are handling chemicals on a daily basis, should be using Rubber/Latex Gloves and a protective Chemical Resistant Cape or Apron.  Employees who are dealing with dust &debris along with chemicals should be investing in Respiratory and Vision Protection.

Creepers! Why Won't They Close Their Peepers?

I find it a little challenging to perform a spa service when my clients peepers are watching my every move. A wide-eyed client can make you feel like they are not relaxed or enjoying the service you're performing. I'm sure you massage therapist and estheticians can relate. I have the perfect way to solve this problem!
  1. Apply a small strip of duck tape to the eyelids.
  2. Apply an adhesive dot to the eyelids. 
  3. Apply a smidge of lash glue to the waterline. 
  4. Simply tell the client to close their eyes because they are making you terribly uncomfortable.
When removing these items from the eyes please be sure not to remove the client's eyelashes or skin!


Just Kidding! 
The real solution is to relax your client and make them feel comfortable with the service you are providing!
  • Be sure to explain the steps of the service when you are doing your consultation.
  • Set a relaxing tone in the treatment room (Play soft music and use aromatherapy).  
  • Apply a lightweight oval eye pad.
  • Apply a Herbal eye pillow. 

Enjoy the power of these hydrogel anti-aging systems. NatraGels are natural, hypoallergenic, biodegradable, and provide a controlled method of delivering botanicals, vitamins, and serums.
