Charcoal Face Mask

Charcoal face masks are currently trending in the beauty industry. You'll find anything from pictures of the result to DIY masks gone completely wrong. I think it's best to leave this service to the professionals, don't you?

Try the Hydrophylic Gel Collagen Mask - Charcoal Collagen Mask
Pack of 15 - Each is Single Use by Martinni
Blended with Bamboo charcoal—a natural element that has deep cleansing properties. This helps heal blemishes, prevent breakouts, and keep skin shine-free. It is a gentle, non-drying pH-balancing formula that will not irritate while going deep to purge and unclog pores and rid skin of excess oil. Skin looks vibrant, smoother, less blemished.

Uses: Oily, acne-prone skin: Heals, clears, and prevents acne formation

Procedure:
  1. Thoroughly cleanse the face.
  2. Open foil pack
  3. Remove the two sections of the Mask
  4. Unfold, and place on face
  5. Remove after 10-20 minutes
  6. Do not rinse or wash the face after use
  7. Allow the remaining ingredients to absorb.

Ingredients:
Aqua, Vegetable Glycerin, Marine Collagen, Sodium Alginate, Sodium PCA, Tea Tree Oil, Hyaluronic Acid, Bamboo Charcoal, Ascorbyl Glucoside Vc, Allantoin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Niacinamide, Tocopheryl Acetate, Rose Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Argireline Acetate, Hexapeptide, Recombinant Human Epidermal Growth Factor, Phenoxyethanol.

The paraben, alcohol, and colorant free mask collection combines state- of-the-art science with utter luxury. The extravagant and powerful blend of peptides, Recombinant Human Epidermal Growth Factor, botanicals, natural extracts, vitamins, Hyaluronic acid, natural elements, and Marine collagen offers the perfect solution to every skin care concern. In only 15 – 20 minutes, the rich ingredients condensed in these Hydrophilic gels will gradually dissolve, and be absorbed by the skin.

Charcoal masks can be used during facials or suited to follow microdermabrasion, chemical peels, laser resurfacing, skin lightening, or as an anti-aging procedure to reduce fine lines and wrinkles while hydrating the skin. They can be used alone, or combined with other treatments, or in conjunction with micro-current, radio frequency, ultrasound, galvanic, or light therapy.

You Say Tomato, I Say Clean Skin


It may sound strange at first, however, the tomato is excellent for aiding with congested skin!

The delicious little red fruit is chock full of lycopene, which has been shown to be a powerful antioxidant. If you're looking for a unique treatment to offer your clients, bring in a tomato mask!








Here is a quality and cost effective one sure to intrigue your clients! At under $5 per mask, you can incorporate these into a facial with nice profits!

Fruit Collagen Mask - Tomato Pore Decongesting Mask 

Make a theme of it...offer fresh tomato salads, Bloody Mary options on the weekends (alcohol optional!) or fresh juice blends that have tomato as an ingredient! Creativity is key!

Beauty Benefits of Mustard (Wait, what?!)

It's not just for hot dogs anymore! Did you know that the mustard seed has a wide variety of beauty benefits for your clients skin and hair? Who ever would've guessed this popular American condiment can actually enhance beauty when used in oil or powder form. A recent article I read mentioned that mustard oil can stimulate healthy hair growth and promote a clearer complexion. See why below!

Hair

Mustard is extremely high in beta carotene, which, when massaged regularly on the scalp, can convert to vitamin A and encourage hair growth.  Aside from encouraging growth, mustard also helps to restrict bacterial and fungal infections that could invade your scalp which can aide in restricting hair loss. It's also extremely rich in vitamins and nutrients that can help to prevent premature greying in your older clients. 

Skin

Mustard can also improve your client's complexion when used in topical form on the skin! Because of its high mineral content, it can also help with hyper-pigmentation and lighten dark spots. It's also cleansing and rejuvenating. The warmth of the mustard can open pores and sweat out impurities.
                                  
Wondering how you can incorporate this seed into your spa? We sell mustard power by the bulk here at Pure Spa Direct, and you can mix it into your next hair mask or facial for a client who is looking for a new, all natural hair or complexion fix! We also have A Mustard Bath Soak by Dr. Singha which you can even use in your next pedicure. Change up your spa menu and incorporate this tiny seed's beautifying properties for your clients who are looking for something unique!

Mud - Making The World A Better Place One Person At A Time!

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!

Wedding Day Skin Concerns

The unofficial wedding season has begun! The end of spring marks the start of the busy season for weddings. 
The gorgeous weather, the abundance of pristine locations, sun and smile filled wedding photos...so many reasons why this time of year is always trendy for weddings.

Every bride wants to look like a princess on her wedding day, from her carefully chosen dress to her skillfully crafted hair. Many brides seek out salons expertise when it comes to their hair and make up, you are also in a prime position to help prepare their skin BEFORE the big day arrives. The last thing any bride wants is a breakout, redness or any other skin concern for their wedding...to be captured forever in professional pictures. 

With the warm weather (especially depending on where you live), humidity can sneak up and cause breakouts, irritation and other issues that can be devastating to a bride to be.

Here are some tips clients should keep in mind with the heat and humidity popping up:

Sunscreen Sunscreen Sunscreen! When was the last time you saw a sunburned bride in a bridal magazine or store poster? Prevention is key! Aside from burning, the sun can make the skin look dry, tired or dull. Be sure to recommend sunscreen to all of your clients, all year round. The sun doesn't take a break in the winter!

Make sure in between treatments, your clients aren't using harsh exfoliating products or face wash that can strip the skin of essential water and oils. Some great options to recommend include the Pore Purifying Facial Bath by June Jacobs and the Exfoliating Scrub by June Jacobs

Ask them how often they are cleaning and buying new make up brushes. Many women may not realize how often they should clean or throw out their brushes! Retailing cosmetic brush cleaners as well as a variety of make up brushes will keep everyone happy!

Facial oil and serums Are the only time the client takes advantage of these amazing tools when theycome in for a facial? Explaining the importance and benefits of facial oils will instill a deeper confidence in the client but will boost retail sales! The Pure Sea Buckthorn Oil is a favorite around here!
Finally, the no brainer when it comes to all around health including the skin...WATER! By now most of your clients should know why and how much water they should be drinking daily. However, it never hurts to check in and remind them on the importance in relation to their skin!

Give your soon to be brides the knowledge, products and confidence they need to ensure the have the best possible skin for the one of the most important days of their lives!

Fresh-Faced Trending Now: What This Means for Skin Care Everywhere

I recently came across an article in the New York Times titled Beauty Unmasked for All to See. The article discusses how there is a growing trend for women to wear less makeup, or even go bare-faced. This new beauty standard might make some of us in the industry gasp, cringe, or cry, but I am here to tell you: don't get too worked up over this yet!
Women everywhere are washing off their makeup
and proudly showing off their beautiful, bare skin
My immediate reaction to the article was "Oh no! What will happen to our industry?!" But after I let it sink in a bit, the more I thought about it, the more I realized this might actually work in our favor! Hear me out...

Even if mega-stars such as Beyonce and Gwenyth are proud to post photos sans makeup, often with the hashtag #nomakeup, they still want to put their best face forward. What does this mean? A HIGHER value and concentration on SKIN CARE!

Think about it. Our clients, even when they were covering their skin with layer upon layer of makeup, were concerned regarding how their skin looked. If they are now baring all, they will be even more concerned about how their skin looks!

All clients want the same basic thing. They want their skin to look healthy, glowing, tight, and young! Estheticians, they look to you to provide this. And now, if they are going to be leaving their makeup behind, who else would they look for to help than you?


This is the time for estheticians everywhere to start marketing towards this fresh-faced, clean and scrubbed look....offering facial polishes, tightening masks, and showing clients how regular visits and the right at-home care will keep their skin glowing so they won't WANT to cover it up!

Take a look at the services you are offering, and see how you can spruce them up with this Bare Faced trend in mind! Another idea is to offer your services in treatment bundles - even the most basic of your facials! By having clients pay for a series of treatments up front, you not only ensure that amount of revenue, but you also have an extended amount of time to show your client the results they are looking for!

Some of our favorite results-oriented skin care products:

Clear Skin - A Never Ending Story

Acne, blackheads, white heads  and blemishes are a problem that everyone at some point in their life has dealt with and not just in their youth. These issues affect people of all ages for various reasons.

How many times have you said or heard the following..." I don't want to go out, I'm too embarrassed because of how bad my skin is breaking out right now," or something along those lines? Skin care professionals are in an amazing position to not only help clear up skin conditions but to give people back their confidence and feel good about themselves.

Spring Makeup Trend: Estheticians and Makeup Artists Alike - Take Note

Every couple of seasons, the makeup trends cycle back to the Nude and Natural look.  For Spring 2013, the nude look is back, however, the goal is not faking nude, but actually going au naturel.

Celebrity makeup artists, including KJ Bennett and Emily Katz, advise using very light concealers an virtually no foundation.  If a foundation is absolutely necessary, Bennett recommends a silicone-based product that is light to nearly sheer.  In addition, lips should be colored to match their natural color.

Estheticans and Facial Specialists are an crucial part of this Spring Trend, because flawless, or nearly perfect skin is essential to pulling off this look.  So how do you incorporate this trend into your services?  Bennett recommends using and retailing products containing Hyaluronic Acid Gel and Silica.

Since lips are going to look bare as well, your clients will need to have exfoliated and moisturized puckers ready for spring.  Lip Treatments are an easy add-on and the June Jacobs Lip Kit works great as both back bar product and retail.

Finally, dewy is in and shiny is out, so no matter what part oft he beauty industry you are in, blotting papers are a must at your check-out counter.
