Product Spotlight: Coffee Espresso Reaffirming Mask

I love coffee. From drinking it, the smell of it and, of course, the amazing skin benefits. Chock full of antioxidants, coffee has been shown to aid in reducing acne, softening the appearance of fine lines along with helping draw out impurities from the skin.

The Coffee Espresso Reaffirming Mask from Leveen is a client favorite. Aside from all of the coffee benefit, this also helps restores moisture balance due to its outstanding water-binding capacity. Also contains soothing and softening sweet Peach fruit extract, Marine collagen, and Ascorbic acid. Great for all skin types, the skin is left feeling soft, smooth and glowing.

Available in single-use packs to help inventory control as well as bulk containers!

Product Of The Week: CryoDerm® Magnesium Calming Cream

Happy Friday!

I was super excited when I saw this new addition to the Pure Spa Direct line up. I'm a huge fan of magnesium lotions and oils. It has helped me with migraines and muscle cramping, and I recommend it to friends regularly.

Aside from the benefits I have experienced with magneisum, CryoDerm® Magnesium Calming Cream is helpful with a multitude of things including fluid retention, calming nerves and detoxifying the body, insomnia, eczema and psoriasis. Harvested from the Dead Sea where the mineral content is at its highest containing 21 minerals, this product is amazing.

You can retail and use this in services making it an easy retail item. Offer it as an add on to a pedicure (medi pedi upgrade!), manicure, massage even as a simple hand/leg massage while a client is getting a facial. Advise they try it a few times to see the results, and have it ready to retail!

See you next Friday, have an amazing weekend!

Product Of The Week: Alaskan Glacial Mud

Happy Friday!

This week, I'd like to spotlight Raw Alaska Glacial Mineral Mud.

Mud is always in style in this industry, from facials masks to body wraps. As a massage therapist, after a few years in I decided to give offering various mud add-ons a shot. As a mobile therapist at the time, I thought I was nuts for just the thought of mobile mud! I was able to make it work for me, and my client response surprised the heck out of me! All of them wanted to try it. After the trial run, some alternated their massages with mud treatments.

Mud works.

Alaska Glacial mud works. Containing more than 60 nourishing major and trace elements to promote healthy skin cell regeneration, you may find clients requesting mud packages.

Raw Alaskan Glacial. The name says it all.
Straight from the Copper River Delta in Alaska, enriched with a special combination of certified organic and wildcrafted botanical extracts from the Pacific Northwest that are chosen for their moisturizing, skin-softening, and anti-aging and immunoprotective properties. Natural as natural gets.

Are your clients hesitant on mud treatments due to that lovely, mud smell?  You can choose vanilla lavender and lavender peppermint. The slight tingle from the peppermint feels amazing, in my opinion!

Available in back bar sizes in both premixed and powder, as well as a beautiful line of retail items.

If you're not ready to jump into the mud just yet, retailing is a great way to talk to your clients and gauge their response to mud.

See you next Friday for another product of the week!

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!

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!

You will have no trouble retailing our brand new Beauty Pro Sheet Masks! Whether it's the Brightening Mask, Detoxifying Mask, or even the Hydrogel Eye Therapy Under Eye Mask, there is one for every client. Become a growing part of this trend, and get these into your spa!

Beat The Winter Blues With Desert Themes!

Maybe it's the cold weather here in New York, but my mind is on warm sunshine, ok more like desert heat but that could be my popsicle hands speaking :)

One idea that I always like and have seen clients have great success with, is incorporating treatments that are the opposite of what the weather is. In the summer, focus on arctic, cooling treatments. In the winter, think warm!

Client's are used to seeing tropical/island theme's however, desert themes (depending on your location) can be an unexpected hit! You can dedicate one treatment room for the theme, if you have the space. Bring in some small cactus plants, use "desert" colors like coral, tan, sage, reds etc, pick out some agave, lime or aloe infused products - even mojitos!

Here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing!

Desert Mineral Detox Body Scrub - this is a no brainer! Our best selling scrub across the board for use in services and for retailing.

Sedona Mud - facials, body wraps, hydrotherapy - from the Southwest, red in color and chock full of minerals to detox in prep (and recovery from) for the holidays!

Desert Rain Incense Sticks 
Aloe Vera Products
Hot Stones - perfect for winter!
Polar Fleece Blanket - Camel 
Chocolate Sheets
Sage Sheets

Be sure to have a quality table warmer like the Samadhi-Pro by Earthlite available to ensure clients are nice and toasty!

Soaking In A Winter Wonderland!

Have you been thinking about your winter menu, or bringing something new and exciting to your services? Here is one that I wish I could take advantage of today on this cold, rainy day in NY!

All you need to do, is come up with a clever name for the service! This is a great soak to relax sore muscles, clear up congestion and drift off into deep relaxation. The essential oils in this also make it a great treatment for your male clients.

Here are a few reasons this makes an excellent addition to a winter menu:
Clearing Winter Soak
Mix together 3 tablespoons of eucalyptus leaves with 3 tablespoons of bilberry leaves in a mixing bowl. Add in 4 drops of spruce essential oil and mix well. Pour the herbs into a muslin bag using a funnel.

When filling the hydrotherapy or soaking tub, place the muslin bag in under the running water. Pour 3/4 cup of Himalayan Salt into the water, making sure it dissolves. Assist the client into the tub and allow them to soak for up to 20 minutes. Assist client out of the bath, follow up with some dry brushing, desert mineral detox scrub, a massage and/or detoxifying body wrap!

Money With Milk And Honey!

September is National Honey Month! That makes now the perfect time to start thinking about and bringing in products to cash in (literally!) on treatments that focus on honey. Here is a great body treatment that generally sells for $100-125 and costs you less than $5.00 per treatment - my type of math!

Milk & Honey Body Treatment - this is excellent for moisturizing dehydrated skin, stress relief, calming of the skin and more!

In a rubber mixing bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of honey powder with 1 tablespoon of coconut powder and mix well. Add in 2 drops each of chamomile essential oil and jasmine essential oil. Mix well and place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabinet or stainless steel bowl filled with hot water.  Apply the scrub as you normally perform your body treatments.

If you have a hydrotherapy tub, after removing the scrub is an excellent time for a soak! Mix 1 tablespoon of buttermilk powder to 2 cups of hot water followed by 5 drops of chamomile essential oil. When filling the hydrotherapy tub, tilt the bowl slightly, hold under the faucet and slowly pour the mixture into the tub (go slow to avoid clumping!)

After the scrub and soak, finish off with this moisturizer to lock in all of the wonderful moisture!

Mix 2 teaspoons of wheatgerm oil with 2 drops of chamomile essential oil. Massage the oil into the skin and wipe off any excess oil to finish.

You can create full body packages centered around honey as well! You can use things like Cuccio Naturale Lyte Ultra-Sheer Body Butter - Honey & Soy Milk in nail services and massage!

Be sure to have retail items to go with the treatments, here are some client favorites:

Cuccio Naturale Butter Babies Display Tower Milk & Honey
Soy Crackle Candle - Honey Spice
Cuccio Naturalé Milk & Honey Daily Skin Polisher
Milk & Honey Aqua Leaves
CUCCIO NATURALE Cuticle Conditioning Butter Sticks Milk & Honey
