Night Time Skin Care

Sleep is essential for proper body and mind function and plays a vital role in cell repair and regeneration. Many tend to focus on what goes on your skin during the day to help protect from UV exposure, free radicals and maintaining moisture. How focused and educated are your clients on their night time skin care routine? The most common routine seems to be makeup removal, quick wash and maybe a spot treatment for acne or under eye cream before hopping into bed. 

Why not take it to the next level for clients with a product that can help retain moisture, smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and leave your skin looking youthful and rested....all while they sleep!

Bioelements Sleepwear is a powerful overnight cream that can be used on dry to combination skin and is packed with the youth restoring goodness of calcium, retinol, peptides and cranberry seed oil. Clients have seen noticeable results in a short period time and all they have to do is remember to put it on before bed. Easily added into any night time routine, there is even a formula just for the hands

Sleep Deprived Skin & How You Can Help

Sleep seems to be one of those things that takes the back burner these days. With work, school, family and more, the amount of time we sleep gets less and less. We all know sleep is essential for our health, it's important to remind clients that it is important for their skin as well.

When we sleep, our bodies slow down to repair and regenerate itself. While we are dreaming of white sandy beaches and winning the lottery, our skin is able to increase the production of collagen; making getting quality sleep very important to the health and appearance of our skin.


Sleep deprived skin can result in things like dark circles under the eyes, puffiness, dry or dehydrated skin as well as a variety of skin infections (lack of sleep weakens our immune system!)

Do you go over your client's sleeping habits/patterns on their intake form? Are you checking in with them to see how they are sleeping? Explaining to your clients the importance of sleep in direct relation to healthy skin will garner a great conversation! You not only show them you are thinking of them as a whole, you also have a good opportunity to offer quality retail items.

Depending on their sleep habits and needs, you can offer everything from relaxing essential oils, candles, sleep masks and music to help them unwind and get a good nights sleep. You can also take this time to offer sunblock, hydrating moisturizers and more!

Goodbye Dull Dry Skin, Hello Beach Ready Glow!

Everyone is rushing to their spas/wellness centers to get rid of their dull, dry winter skin. The rush on hydrating and brightening products are in full swing!  Here is an awesome menu idea to freshen up your Spring body treatments! This body wrap will help smooth, exfoliate and hydrate the skin while the relaxing their cares away!

Spring Hydrating Body Wrap (I'm sure you're more creative at treatments names that will fit in with your regular menu!)

You may wish to prepare this before the client comes in to maximize time.

Prep:

Body Wrap:

Combine 4T of Sedona Mud Powder, 1T of Egg White Powder and 2t of Clove Powder  in a large rubber mixing bowl.  Add in 6T of water and stir until a paste like consistency.

Add in 15 drops of Sweet Orange Pure Essential Oil  (if you have a client who does not like orange scents or for male clients, try using 5-10 drops spearmint or 5-7 drops cedarwood essential oil instead). Mix in 3T of Organic Corn Meal and mix well (the cornmeal may soak up the liquid once it sits, you can add more water if it is too dry. If the mix becomes to wet, you can add in more of the Sedona Mud Powder).

Place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabinet or even in a stainless steel bowl filled with hot water to warm the mixture is warm and feels luxurious when applied.

Moisturizer:

In a medium rubber mixing bowl, mix 2T of Whipped Shea Butter with 5 drops Sweet Orange Pure Essential Oil (again you can substitute 5-10 drops spearmint or 5-7 drops cedarwood essential oil)


Dry brushing the client prior to the body wrap is an excellent way to start if you don't already begin that way. Once you have prepped as you normally do for wraps, check the temperature of the warmed mixture to be sure it is at a comfortable temperature before applying. Apply the mask as usual, being sure to pay extra attention to extra dry areas, especially feet, heels,knees and elbows. Once the mask has been applied, wrap the client in plastic sheeting followed by a thermal blanket. Leave on for approximately 15-20 minutes ---now is a great time for add on services like scalp massage! Remove the mask as you normally do and follow with the moisturizer!
