Expanding Your Spa Business: Family-Friendly Spas in Trend

It seems like everywhere I look, someone is buzzing about the amazing Family Spa Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa in Hawaii. With a culture becoming more and more focused on healthy living and well-being, it doesn't surprise me at all that family-oriented spas are trending now - and hopefully are here to stay. However, do we HAVE to take a trip all the way to Hawaii to share a spa experience with our family?

I hope the resounding answer is NO. I mean, I am certainly not knocking a trip to Hawaii, that's for sure, but  it might be fun to spend a day at the spa with my family without having to take a 9 hour flight.

However, all this buzz leads me to believe that family-friendly spas have a huge market that has only begun to be tapped. See below for some tips to make your spa more family friendly!

Family Friendly Spa Treatments

  1. Offer a child/teen menu. Services to include: Child mani/pedi, teen acne facial, Mom/Daughter or Father/Son Massages
  2. Mix-It-Yourself Scrub Bars. Get the whole family involved to create the perfect scrub, then use the scrub during a child's pedicure. Let them choose their scents, oils, and bases to make a truly customized treatment. Offer To-Go Jars so kids can create and take their scrubs home!
  3. Mini Makeup Applications. Use a light hand to apply blush, eye shadow, and lip gloss to make your tiny-sized clients feel like princesses!
Some Tips to Remember
  1. As children have shorter attention spans, truncated services are best. Schedule 25 minute massages, mini-facials, and mini manis or pedis.
  2. Offer themed services: Ice Cream Mani/Pedi, Chocolate Massages, Peppermint Facials, etc. By catching a child's interest in the products you are using, the child will be fascinated by the whole process, and likely sit still and enjoy!
  3. Offer discounted child services with the purchase of a parent's service. If Mom comes in for a full manicure and pedicure, offer a child's mini mani and pedi at a discounted rate to secure another client!
  4. Offer a family-friendly waiting area with TVs, computers, magazines, books, and toys geared toward different age groups. This way, even if the mini-sessions are completed before Mom or Dad's full service, the kids are entertained!
Have you embraced this family-friendly spa trend? I would love to hear about your unique take on family spa services!

Seasonal Super Fruits Full of Antioxidants!

Each season brings new ingredients for seasonal treatments and the fruits of the fall are full of skin loving antioxidants! Antioxidants helps prevent skin damage like wrinkles, fine lines, and redness caused by environmental factors like UV rays and pollution. Antioxidants are super important in skincare for preventing damage and slowing the signs of aging. These fall super fruits include pomegranate, pumpkin, and cranberry. Each bringing its own unique benefits to your skin care services:

Pomegranate will help the skin defend itself against free radicals that cause premature aging due to an antioxidant called punicic acid. Pomegranate seed oil is the only known plant-based source of Omega 5 essential fatty acid and has the ability to soothe, protect, and moisturize dry, cracked, and irritated skin, as well as to improve skin elasticity and promote cellular rejuvenation. Omega 5 highly compatible with the dermis due to its small molecular size, meaning it is absorbed almost instantaneously. Pomegranate facials are perfect for your clients with very dry skin.

Pumpkin is a rich source of nutrients and antioxidants and is a great source of anti-aging vitamin A. It is also a great chemical exfoliant because the enzymes in pumpkins dissolve dead skin cells. Pumpkin facial treatments will give your clients a healthy glow all throughout the fall and winter months! Pumpkin will nourish dry and tired skin instantly, as well as soothe and protect the skin. Pumpkin peels are also great for clients with acne and acne related damage.

Cranberries are a type of acidic berry that are rich in vitamin C. These berries are a powerful antioxidant and natural antiseptic with an anti-inflammatory effect. Cranberries bring a ton of benefits to skincare due to the anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties, and the ability to enhance cell turnover. Facial treatments with cranberries are great for treating acne, slowing down aging and building collagen and moisture in the skin.

Back to School Facials - Blast Away Acne for Confident School Comebacks!

Don't Pick It -
Get a  June Jacob's Facial!
Kids are ruthless. I know my son suffered deeply from acne during his high school years, and even his closest "friends" made him feel insecure about his re-occurring acne outbreaks. We tried everything to help his acne prone skin, and soon learned that professional facials helped tremendously.  As his skin became clearer, his confidence and even his grades became better!

So I was extremely excited when earlier this month we received the new June Jacobs Blemish Control line. June Jacob's is one of my favorite lines here at Pure Spa Direct. Her integral line of products is loved by estheticians and five star spas because they truly perform!

What is also exciting about the new Blemish Control line is that the products are targeting hormonal acne outbreaks. Catering to skin care needs affected by stress and hormone levels, this paraben and preservative free collection of products helps to combat acne and calm skin. This means it's even great for clients suffering from adult acne - like me.

The Products:
Anti-Aging Blemish Control Foaming Cleanser
This paraben and preservative free clarifying cleanser with salicylic acid thoroughly cleanses oily skin and reduces blackheads and blemishes.

Effective combination of blue daisy, broccoli and turmeric extracts help to calm, soothe and detoxify problematic skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin vitality and tone.
