Kermit The Frog Was Wrong, it IS easy being green - When You're Green Tea

It's no mystery to many adults these days that drinking green tea can be good for your health. Some may even know that it's chock full of antioxidants, some may not. Those same antioxidants can be just as good for peoples outsides as well as their insides!

Green tea, aside from tasting good, has been found to help prevent collagen breakdown making it a favorite for fine lines and wrinkles. Green tea has also been shown to help draw out impurities and aid in healing the skin - hello, twofer?!? Pulling out impurities while moisturizing - add is some hyaluronic acid to lock that moisture in and you have yourself a ninja treatment.

Clients with dark and/or puffy issues under the eyes? Green tea can help reduce inflammation and help to increase circulation. A green tea facial with an add on of baby magic globes, and the Revitalizing Eye Gel by June Jacobs, sounds soothing right? I closed my eyes just thinking about it! Don't forget to retail your add ons!

If you need me, I'm heading to the kitchen to make some green tea! Send me an email at christine@purespadirect.com if you have any questions while I'm away :)

Help Your Clients Beat the Winter Time Blues!

Winter time is the time for dry skin. Cracked hands are a common occurrence. This is something that everyone has to deal with. What can we do to get rid of this problem?? We have all tried many different lotions, yet we still have dry, cracked, and irritated hands.

Perfect timing we have a new product by June Jacobs-Rapid Healing Cream. Not only can you use this for your hands, but anywhere on your body!

This revolutionary clinically-tested face and body treatment helps soothe irritation and provides up to 24-hour moisturization.

Gentle yet effective, this non-greasy formula absorbs quickly to leave skin healthy, nourished and perfectly rejuvenated.

What I love about this product is the key ingredients used in it. The ingredient that drew me to it is Edelweiss Extract – A rare flower from the Swiss Alps known as the “survival star” is sustainably and organically cultivated, contains a high level of the anti-oxidant leontopodic acid and supports the skin's crucial protective barrier, enhancing its resistance to external stress factors and preserving skin's natural balance.

Just a Fraction of Coconut Oil, Please!

If you haven't noticed our Just Added section of our site yet, you're definitely missing out! We are constantly adding new products each day, and I love seeing the latest offerings we have. My new favorite that we just got in is our Fractionated Coconut Oil by Soothing Touch. I know that coconut oil is definitely a craze that's gained quite the popularity over the past years in the beauty industry, but did you know that there are two different types? I'm sure you're used to using products that contain virgin coconut oil. Have you heard of fractionated coconut oil? It's exactly how it sounds, but with even more beautifying benefits! I'll explain why below!..

Fractionated coconut oil is processed differently than regular coconut oil. The reason being is that the oil has been through hydrolysis then steam distilled to remove the long chain triglycerides. As a result, only the medium chain triglycerides are left which makes for a highly saturated oil. This means the oil is even more abundant in antioxidants and its natural disinfecting effects! Unlike virgin coconut oil, which solidifies in colder temperatures, fractionated coconut oil remains in liquid form. This is great for use as a massage oil, and to blend with essentials oils or even for use in handmade lotions and soaps. Another plus is that this type of oil has a longer shelf life and stability which makes it cost effective for your business.



If you're in need of a new oil for your spa, I highly recommend trying out our Soothing Touch Fractionated Massage Coconut Oil on your clients! It is paraben free and unscented so you can customized the oil to whichever scent your client prefers. Unlike virigin coconut oil, this oil does not leave a greasy feel either. I promise your clients will love it!

White Is The New Green Tea

It's no secret that green tea offers a variety of health benefits ranging anywhere from weight loss to anti-stress relief. Health stores and wellness boutiques alike are implementing its powerful effects on health, beauty, and even anti-aging properties. I am all about green tea, don't get me wrong!.. but did you know that white tea is actually even more powerful than it's older sister?! I say older sister because green tea and white tea actually come from the same plant, the Camellia Sinensis. However white tea is harvested at a younger age, hence its stronger effects. It is less processed than green tea, allowing it to retain a higher antioxidant content than green. Higher antioxidants = stronger effects! The reason green tea gets all the credit is because it has been studied extensively, it's more common, and it's easier and less expensive than white. 

We're putting the lime light on white tea with a variety of products that contain this anti-oxidant rich herb here at Pure Spa Direct! These products are a fun way to change up your normal green tea treatments you offer or retail at your spa, or to simply add a new variety of tea products! Check below for some of my favorites.. 

We just got in this white tea and ginger sugar scrub here at Pure Spa Direct, and I could not be more excited! This is actually a 3-in-1 formula that exfoliates, cleanses, and moisturizes. It's perfect for spa treatments including pedicures. Change up your pedicure menu by adding a white tea spa pedicure that will certainly intrigue your clients from the normal green tea pedicure they're used to. Its attractive package design is also great for retailing!



To go along with the sugar scrub, we also have these adorable mini effervescent soak scrubs that are great for retailing! We also have the large soak scrubs which can be used for professional treatments in your spa. These bath bombs are great to implement in your new white tea spa pedicure, as they replenish lost moisture and promote a youthful appearance, especially for hands and feet.







Do you offer beverages to your clients? If not, we have a variety of white tea options that can be a great feature to add to your spa! Click here to view the various types of white tea we have and get your clients hooked on this anti-oxidant rich beverage!

Snail Facials....No, Seriously!

Yes, you read that correct! SNAIL FACIALS! And it is as literal as it sounds!

We are always hearing about interesting beauty treatments that are being offered over in Japan, but this new one that includes a little creature crawling around on your face? Sounds pretty icky to me! However, according to the Spa in Tokyo, the snails' mucus contains properties to help recover the skin cells on the face. This includes power proteins, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid - which helps retain moisture, ease inflammation, and remove dead skin cells.

But don't go just searching for any snails to bring into your spa! These snails are bought from an organic farm and fed a specific diet of carrots, spinach and Swiss chard. The treatment lasts 60 minutes. After washing the face, a therapist places the snails on the skin and then follows with massages, electrical pulse machines and creams which have snail mucus in them.

Check out one person's experience here!

While this outlandish service is currently only offered in Japan, Pure Spa Direct can definitely help supply all of your unique facial services! What kind of interesting facials are you offering?? =)
