Menu Spotlight: Back Acne Be Gone!!!

Since this is the season of dare to bare, people want their skin as flawless as possible without having to spend a fortune. If you have clients with back acne, this is a great, affordable (yet cost AND time effective for your business!) treatment to test out in your Summer menu.

Back Masque - think of a clever name to fit your menu theme/style!

In a medium rubber mixing bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of marine fango with 4-6 drops of eucalyptus oil. Prep your bed for a body treatment, placing a protective covering on. Place a heating pad set on low on the table, so that it will line up under the client's back area. Spread a layer of the masque on to a disposable pad, and place on the heating pad. You can also apply the masque to the client's back with a body brush, and have them lie down on the disposable pad and heating pad.

If you've up sold the client into services to be done at the same time, begin those will the client is laying on the masque.

Once the other services have been completed, remove the back masque with warm, damp towels.

Take a look at some information and ideas for add on treatments to up sell, here.

The majority of clients I've spoken with recently have been focusing on getting their clients ready to show their skin off this bathing suit season. The first benefit many are looking for in a product - hydration. They want to blast the skin full of moisture and moisture locking products.

Whether doing a specific menu item as their "Summer Spotlight Special" or designing a package treatment, check out the Hydrating Herbs by Amber Products. With ingredients such as strawberry leaves, sage, eucalyptus, lavender flower, and chamomile this not only helps heal dry, cracked skin it just feels good.

Ideal Summer Retail Product Available! Help Your Clients Get in the "Wave" - Beachy Waves!

Even though the 4th of July has passed, and August is approaching quicker than you know it, summer is still here! I'm sure you get a lot of clients at your salon that come in asking for beach wave hair, especially this time of year. From the salty water to sun-kissed highlights, the beach just has that natural effect on our hair that is often be hard to recreate at home. Maybe your clients simply don't have time for the beach or even live near one, but want those tousled summery locks they can't seem to get. If you're looking to revamp your retail shelf or add a new product to your salon, we have quite the selection here at Pure Spa Direct

One of my absolute favorites is the Amika Obliphica Un.Done Texture Spray. It's a great texturing finishing spray that uses zeolite, a natural mineral, to build glamorous volume and give hair that undone, beachy look your clients will love! The best part about this formula is that it's light weight and doesn't weigh hair down or feel stiff like many texturizing sprays tend to do. Their adorable, colorful packaging make them the perfect product to retail as well. Why not get this in stock at your salon for the last few weeks of summer... or better yet, to prolong beachy summer hair year round!

A Heater That Conditions Hair Too?!

I know, I know.. sounds like a contradiction and almost too good to be true, but Hot Tools has actually made this possible! We just got in the Hot Tools Conditioning Steam Setter, and what better time to get this in than the summer! I'm sure a lot of your clients are battling frizz with the warmer, more humid months, as well as dry and damaged hair from all the time spent at the beach during their summer getaways. 


Are you in need of a quick and easy service that will condition your clients hair while giving them those tousled, beachy summer curls they're looking for? This is definitely the right tool for your salon. The Conditioning Steam Setter conditions as it curls! A warm and moisturizing steam forms the curls, ensuring that hair is never exposed to the damaging, dry heat that more traditional irons have. Who needs more dry heat when your clients are already exposing their hair to the hot summer sun? This also comes with 14 jumbo rollers making this whole process quick and easy - the hair can set in 5-10 minutes. Have a client that's really on the go? You can achieve "The 30-Second Curl" by blow-drying their hair with rollers to evaporate the moisture faster. My favorite part?!.. it includes an Argan Conditioning Treatment and Thermal Protectant to protect the hair from heat damage. In need of revamping your retail section for summer? These are also perfect for retailing to your clients!

Soothing Summer Body Treatment!

As we near the end of June, I've had quite a few conversations with clients gearing up for their summer menu options. Many have asked about body treatments for skin that has been overexposed to the sun. Aside from having quality sunscreen and lip protection to retail, here is a great body mask to help calm sun scorched skin.

Sun Skin Saver Body Mask
*this mask is soothing and hydrating to help calm and nourish skin that has been overexposed to the sun

In a rubber mixing bowl, mix 3T Kaolin powder, 1 T Buttermilk Powder and 1 T of honey powder until combines. Add in 2 T of Aloe Gel and mix well. Place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabi or in another bowl filled with warm water.

Prep the client as you normally do for body treatments and apply the mask using a brush or your hands starting at the feet. Make sure the temperature of the mix is not too hot so warm that it causes more pain to the already sensitive skin!

Leave the mask on for 20 minutes before removing. Follow up with your favorite hydrating lotion like the Alchimie Forever Daily Defense Cream SPF 23 or Alchimie Forever Kantic Calming Cream !

This soothing mask will have your clients sighing with relief!

It's Not Just Slime! The Beauty Benefits of Algae

Algae is commonly seen as that annoying, gross slime that we try to remove from our pools each year. However, did you know that tons of beauty products are actually loaded with it ? But waiiit!.. before you go running to your spa pantry to impulsively throw away all of your products, let's take a look at the benefits this seemingly gross sludge actually has to offer! According to an article I read on it, there are plenty. Since beach season is on the horizon, you might want to consider adding an algae face mask treatment to your spa! It's a great seasonal treatment your clients will love.

What are the beautifying benefits of algae? Check them out below!



Anti-aging
Due to its high protein and fatty acid content, algae can help boost collagen production which keeps the skin elastic and firm - all characteristics of youth, which can help in anti-aging. We have a great Seaweed Algae Peel Off Mask by Pour Elle Labs which can be an effective product to use during an algae facial treatment at your spa.



Hydrating

Because algae is a plant and water-based by nature, its components can help to moisturize and even purify the skin. This can also reduce the appearance of fine lines an wrinkles because of its strong hydrating properties.



Anti-bacterial

Research has found that blue-green algae has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, which makes it effective in treating your clients who are prone to acne, eczema, and even psoriasis! To get started on your algae facial treatments, you might want to consider purchasing our Warm Clay and Algae Masque Kit by Amber!






Convinced that this sea plant is more than just annoying green pool stuff?! Click here to see all of our algae products to get your spa prepared for a beautifying deep sea treatment just in time for summer :)

During the summer-time you can count on booking plenty of appointments for clients who are looking to improve their appearance for those special occasions or just a day on the beach. You can ensure that your clients get the perfect look with the best body waxes and body waxing products. However, it can be annoying when you run out of products like pre-wax Spray during a session.  To make that doesn't happen to you, stocking up on a few bottles of this spray from Amber Professional will do the trick! The Pre-Wax Spray by Amber Professional is a gentle antiseptic that helps to clean and soothe the skin before a waxing session.  It is also useful for calming irritated skin by reducing redness and minor swelling of the tissues that may occur from activities like exfoliation before waxing.  Tea Tree Oil is the active ingredient in this product that provides many beneficial effects! 

Wave bye-bye to that icky oil and dirt!!
