Are Your Make Up Brushes Clean Enough?

I just read some surprising statistics on make up brush cleaning habits, from a Harris Poll on behalf of Anisa International. According to the survey, 39% of women who use makeup brushes clean the brushes once a month, while 22% have never cleaned them. The reasons behind not cleaning brushes range from the time it takes for them to dry, to not knowing they even need to be cleaned.

Cleaning your make up brushes helps kill any bacteria on the bristles, and helps prevent breakouts. You should be cleaning your brushes at least twice a month, more depending on how much you use them. You want to be using a make brush cleaner rather than just water and dish soap. Aside from the disinfecting benefits of cleaning brushes properly, you also help extend the life of the brush.

Aside from having a quality brush cleaner for your own brushes, be sure to have some to retail to your clients. You have the opportunity to educate your clients on why cleaning their brushes is vital to their skin health, they will appreciate you taking the time to show you care about them, not just the money they spend on services!

Disposable Nail Products Will Make Your Salon the Most Popular Around!

Nail salon cleanliness is a hot topic these days, and nail salon clients are looking closer and closer at what goes on behind the scenes at your nail salon (See Rebeca's "Cuticle Soup" blog). With concerns such as infections and wounds, clients are more aware of nail salon practices, and looking around your establishment with a wary eye.

Wouldn't you rather be known as the cleanest salon in town? Clients notice even the smallest details, so it is important to show your clients that their safety is important to you....even if you have to charge slightly more to cover the costs. In the long run, you will definitely benefit from the clean practices.


Some "Clean" Nail Salon Practices:
Disposable files and buffers
are ideal for cleanliness and comfort!

    Use disposable nail files and nail buffers to set your clients at ease. The mini block buffers are the perfect size for just 1 use, and with some priced under $0.05/client, they are affordable, too!

    Other disposable items are a good idea too - disposable toe separators, slippers, and even manicure cups for soaking. Any item that could potentially house germs and cooties, if you can make it disposable, do it. Clients will adore you for it!

    Invest in an autoclave to thoroughly sterilize all of your metal tools. Use it properly, and be sure to let your clients see you opening the sterilized pouch. They will feel more confident in your hands.

    Never leave water standing in your pedicure tubs. Pedicure tubs must be cleaned after each and every use. Try the new Pedi Spa Cleaner by Spa Redi! Even better, instead of a pedicure spa, use a Footsie Bath featuring clean, hygienic, disposable liners to ensure cleanliness for each and every client!
    A little extra effort will go a long way with your clients - and your profits!

    What are some of your "Clean" Tips?

    The Color of White & It's Impact on the Spa World!


    White is a color!..And a powerful one in fact!  A simple color, or seemingly color-less, white is actually a very complex color and has a lot of symbolism in our daily lives. At its most complete and pure state, white is the color of perfection! As on the stripes of the American Flag, and the symbolism of the white wedding dress, white signifies purity and innocence. It is the most commonly used color for interior design, especially in Spas, Salons, and Medical Offices. Why?...


    1) Purity: Perception creates inner cleansing and purifying of thoughts, emotions, and spirit to refresh and strengthen your clients and your overall well-being!


    2) Cleanliness: For it's purity. White allows dirt, and the alike, to be easily noticed, so using white encourages the business to maintain clean surfaces, and a germ-free environment. It is also the reason why doctors, estheticians, etc. wear white jackets and lab coats. When it comes to decor, using white for negative space makes rooms appear to be open, larger, and uncluttered.

    2) Psychological: White is the color of new beginnings. Since white isn't stimulating to the senses alone, it is the blank slate that opens the door to make lasting impressions on the mind of your clients. Just think, when you walk into an all-white spa, you automatically perceive it as being clean, comforting, and refreshing.




    3) Reflective:  Scientifically speaking, since white is found all the way at the end of the visual spectrum, using white when decorating, in conjunction with other colors, creates great contrast causing the other colors  to "POP!" Recommended combinations include white/black and white/red.


    4) Protection/Encouragement: White offers a sense of peace, calmness, comfort and hope, which can ease your clients from stress or emotional issues.


    Pure Spa Direct (hence Pure) offers everything you need to make your spa the clean, pure, warm, welcoming, and peaceful place you always imagined!...And no better time than now, since it is Spring Cleaning time!
