Slim Down As The Year Winds Down

I still cannot believe we're already into October, this year is flying by!

Detox and slimming treatments are always trending, however the end of the year always shows a big push in detox services. Clients want to look their absolute best for events, parties and reunions.

If you're looking to add something new to your body wraps, here is an extremely profitable recipe idea, to have your clients feeling bright and tight!

Slim It Down!

In large rubber mixing bowl, combine 1/4 cup of green tea powder with 1 teaspoon of borage oil. After mixing well, add in 3/4 cup of dead sea mud and 2 teaspoons of grapeseed oil. Mix this all up well, and place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabinet or even a large stainless bowl filled with hot water. You want the mixture to be warm when applying to the client.

Perform the body wrap as you normally would, along with any add ons like dry brushing, Eco Fin or a scalp massage. Add on services are a great way to further boost profits and increase clients satisfaction!

Butter Your Clients Up With Shea Butter

Looking to tighten up your spending, without sacrificing anything in your services? When was the last time you took a look at shea butter?

Did you just go, "oooh shea butter, I used to use/love that a few years ago"? You're not alone! The secret weapon of some savvy spas for years has been shea butter.

Chock full of oleic acid, a super hydrating fatty acid, shea butter should be in every room, station and on every trolley. It's also one of the most versatile products I can think of, as it can be used in almost any service. Use it an add on to any service you offer, it is great for retailing, and can be used as a carrier base for essential oils.

Clients with sensitive skin? Shea butter is gentle enough for even acne prone clients.

Not sure what services it can be easily incorporated in to? Here are a few to get your thoughts moving like butter:

Hair: can be used in/as a hair mask, can be used as an add on for a scalp massage (give clients a choice of essential oil to add in as well) to any other service

Massage: can be used as a carrier for essential oils, blends well with other oils like coconut and jojoba for a ridiculously luxurious feel.

Facials: helps promote elasticity, helps fade age spots and of course, it's been rumored to be a favorite of Cleopatra to keep her skin looking young and glowing

Body Treatments: slather this on your clients with a mylar blanket for a heavenly body wrap, use after a body scrub or dry brushing treatment, mix in an abrasive of your choice (salt, sugar, raw ingredients etc) for a cost effective and hydrating scrub

Nails: you can use this as a lotion or add in sugar or salt for a scrub

Sometimes the simplest of things can have the biggest impact for your clients, and your bottom line. Shea butter is high on that list!

Waterproof Treatment Table?

One of my favorite things is discussing with clients their menu options (you didn't think we're just order takers, right? We live for this industry!) and bringing new treatments in.

Over the years, many clients have held back from offering treatments that involve mud or water, if they don't have a wet table and vichy shower (want to bring those in? click here to check out financing!) for mess concerns. While the Lotus Touch Seaweed Gel Wrap is a phenomenal option (seriously, check out this post for why it's a #1 choice for many small businesses looking for big profit with no mess), for clients looking to expand into things like muds, there's another solution!

The Waterproof Spa Treatment Sheet Set is just the thing needed to crush it this season with body wraps! It not only keeps moisture out, it's also machine washable! The set includes a fitted sheet and face cradle cover, and did I mention it's under $20? For less than $20 you can transform your treatment table into a body wrap sanctuary!

Not sure what mud to start with? Here are some top favorites from our clients all across the globe:

Raw Alaska Glacial Mineral Mud - this is my all time favorite mud. The quality is unparalleled, you can choose from powder or pre-mixed, and there are retail items to boost sales even more. It also happens to be the most mineral rich mud on the market. Want to know more? Click here for more on how and why you should consider this line.

Moor Mud - this was my favorite mud before I tried the Alaska mud. While the options don't include lavender or peppermint like the Alaska mud, take a look at this as well!

Sedona Mud - this is a red mud that one of our 5 star resort clients has on hand at all times. The one they prefer is this one by Spa Pantry, their clients love the scent!

European Rose Body Mud - Nourish + Moisturize + Heal + Replenish by Biotone- I used this in my massage practice and it was a client favorite. A cream based mud with hydrating oils like sunflower and avocado, this leaves the skin feeling silky smooth

Take a look at all of the different body wrap options here, after adding the waterproof treatment table to your cart!

Not sure what else you need to get started now that you've got a waterproof table? Give us a call or shoot me an email (christine@purespadirect.com) and I'd be happy to help!

Say Goodbye To Dry Winter Skin Before Spring!

It's the perfect time of the year to start planning, and preparing your Spring menu. Here is a great exfoliating and hydrating "recipe" to get your creative juices flowing!

Spring Fling Body Wrap
***gentle exfoliating treatment that also soothes, nourishes and protects the skin***

You will be using two different mud mixtures to swirl on the clients skin!

Prep:

In a large rubber mixing bowl, combine 1/2 cup Sedona Mud, 1 tablespoon whipped shea butter, 1 drop ginger essential oil and 1/2 tablespoon of honey powder, and mix well.

In another larger rubber mixing bowl, mix 1/2 cup Moor Mud, 1 tablespoon whipped shea butter and 1 drop ginger essential oil, and mix well.

Place both bowls in a mud warmer, large stainless steel bowl filled with hot water, or a hot towel cabinet so the mixtures will be warm when applied.

Treatment:

Remove the bowls from the warmer - mud should be around 110-120 degrees. Using a body mask brush, apply the sedona mud mixture in a swirl pattern on the back, back of the arms and legs. Apply the moor mud mixture in a swirl pattern in the spaces between the sedona mud stripes. Have the client flip over, and repeat the process until the entire body is covered with the mud stripes.

Wrap the client in plastic wrap and a thermal blanket, and allow them to relax for 15-20 minutes. Now is a great time for an add on service like a scalp massage or Eco-Fin!

Remove the blanket, open the plastic sheet, and sprinkle the stomach with 1/4 teaspoon of ground pumice. Using about 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil, gently massage the stomach and mud streaked arms/legs one at a time. Have the client flip over again, and repeat the pumice and coconut oil massage. If you have a vichy shower, drench the client with warm water for 10 minutes. Have them turn over one more time and repeat the shower process. If you do not have a vichy shower, have them shower or use warm moist towels to remove the mud.

Be sure to retail sunscreen such as Burnout to your clients to help protect their glowing, hydrated skin!

Diamonds Are Forever - So Is Your Skin

It's never too early to be thinking about your next menu change. The holiday season will be gone in a flash, before you know it the stores will be decorated for Valentine's Day. Here is a fun mask designed to reveal your best skin! Hydrating, anti aging and can be used on the body and face.

Diamond In The Rough

In a rubber mixing bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of shea butter,1 1/2 tablespoons of Rose Hip Powder and 10 drops of rose essential oil. Place 1/2 teaspoon of this into a small rubber mixing bowl (this will be the facial mask).

In another rubber mixing bowl, add 1 tablespoon corn meal and 2 tablespoons of water and mix well (this will be the body scrub/mask).

Place the bowls into a mud warmer, hot towel cabi or stainless steel bowl of hot water.

Prepare to start with dry brushing (our best selling for service and retail are here!) the client's skin, starting at the feet and working up. Remove the body scrub/mask from the warmer - check the temp before applying to your client! Apply the scrub/mask, paying extra attention to any dry areas. Wrap the client in plastic sheeting, cover with a thermal blanket and leave on for 15- 20 minutes.

During this time, cleanse the client's face, remove the facial mask from the warmer and apply to the decollete and face, massaging the product in.

Remove the blanket, plastic and escort the client to the shower (unless you have a vichy shower to make it even easier!), or dry brush the skin again to remove excess product and use warm moist towels to clean up.

Finish up with a full body moisturizer (the Alchimie Forever Daily Defense Cream SPF 23, and Intensive Age Defying Hydrating Complex are best sellers across the world!) and apply sunscreen to the face.

You can offer add ons like Eco Fin, Scalp Massage/Treatments, Anti Aging under eye treatments and more!

Pretty drastic statement there, right?!?

It's the truth, in a way :) When we look our best, we feel our best which in turn tends to make us happier people. Happy people make the world a better place - here's where the mud comes in!

I'm sure you've noticed over the last few years, the natural movement is still growing. Clients are concerned about ingredients and the chemicals going in or on their bodies. Alaska Glacial Mineral Mud is a 100% natural mud that happens to be the most mineral rich mud on the market today!

You can use the Alaska Glacial Mineral Mud in facials, body wraps and even nail services! It is great for exfoliating and detoxifying the skin - it's gentle enough where it does not dry out the skin either! This is is especially important for clients with sensitive skin!

The lavender peppermint blends have been flying out of the warehouse this month! It smells wonderful and the peppermint adds the slightest tingling feeling that is amazing! As an added bonus, they make retail sized muds and soaps that are also great for gifts, packages and giveaways!

Chocolate Oatmeal Body Wrap---Good Enought To Eat!

Clients tend to expect treatment menus to feature chocolate services around holidays like Valentine's Day and Christmas; why not surprise them with something special as we head into the cooler months?

A chocolate and oatmeal body wrap is just the thing to surprise your clients with. Chocolate is excellent for increasing circulation, releasing toxins and reducing the appearance of cellulite. Oatmeal is excellent for increasing hydration and soothing skin irritations. Put them together and it's heavenly!

Start off by making your own exfoliating scrub with cocoa powder and flax seed. or try the Giovanni Hot Chocolate Sugar Scrub. Follow up with a body wrap made from cocoa powder and oatmeal.

If you're not one to make your own masks and scrubs, you could always use the Chocolate Comfort Sugar Scrub Body Treatment Kit by Body Concepts and mix in oatmeal powder. Another option is to add a few drops of the Ritual Alami Kakao Cocoa Essential Oil to the Desert Mineral Detox Scrub.

After the body wrap, you can always offer an add on chocolate bliss massage with chocolate massage oil!

Almost everyone loves chocolate, why wait until Valentine's Day to indulge your clients?
