Looking For A Natural Product With A Variety Of Uses? Witch Hazel To The Rescue!

Keeping with the natural product craze, here's a product that is a quiet storm in the industry. Witch Hazel has many beneficial uses but never really gets the spotlight.

While it's a great natural astringent, it is also excellent in many other applications. You can mist your clients skin after steaming to to refresh the skin without drying. It's also awesome as a toner to help balance the ph level in skin. You can even use it as the liquid for body treatments that use mud or clay.

Here's a quick overview of the big things this little liquid helps with:

  • works as an all-natural astringent
  • works as a refreshing toner
  • soothes skin after shaving
  • soothes skin after waxing
  • used to remove makeup and oil
  • refreshes skin after exercise


You can also go with the leaf to make your own fresh body treatments!

Versatile, inexpensive and effective - you have yourself a multi use product for less than $25!

Anti Aging Facial Massage

It's no secret at this point that clients are generally looking for natural treatment options versus harsh chemicals.  When people think of anti aging of the face, I'm sure a vast majority don't think about facial massage as an option.

Facial massage helps with circulation which aids in collagen production (bringing fresh blood to the face for a youthful glow), helps relieve tension which relaxes the facial muscles (tense face = wrinkles), and it also helps product absorb into the skin.

Are you offering an anti aging facial massage add on to your regular services? It's a great way to boost profit on your regular facials and massages. Using specific anti aging serums is a great way to boost effectiveness and to customize the service to each client.

Here are some of the hottest products at some of the top spas around the world that you may want to incorporate as well!

Jazz Up Your Clients' Faces with June Jacobs Cucumber Reviving Cream


This time of year for many can be rough for their skin. The colder weather, dry air and forced heat can wreak havoc with skin moisture.

One of my favorite products is the Cucumber Reviving Day Cream™ - 50 grams / 1.7 oz. by June Jacobs Spa Collection . I have very sensitive skin, anything I put on my face causes it to break out. I am so thankful for this product as it is gentle on my face and extremely hydrating. A little bit goes a long way so you get quite a bit out of the container. It goes on smooth and has a fresh scent to it.

Another great thing about this product is that it is preservative and paraben free! It is formulated with cucumber extract and milk protein to cool, soothe and energize the skin. Nourishing carrageenan and algae extracts to help retain moisture, while shea butter provides continuous hydration, helping to smooth away fine lines and refining the skin’s texture. It is also packed with an anti-oxidant blend of white, red and green tea extracts combined with goji berry, pomegranate and grapeseed extracts help to neutralize free radicals, protect skin from environmental toxins and combat the visible signs of premature aging!


This is a great product to retail to your clients looking for a high quality gentle moisturizer at a great price.

This is also great to use in your services for those same clients. After one use, your clients will be begging you to sell them a bottle!

Facial Products That Every Massage Therapist NEEDS TO KNOW About...

Neck & Facial Massage w/ Facial Oil
The little extra TLC that will make your spa the place to be...The facial products that every Massage Therapist needs to know about...

The most frequent question I get asked from Massage Therapists is "can I use the same products I use on my clients body on their face?" Although there are a few products that can be used on both the body and face, 90% of the time the answer is NO!

If you think about it, do you wash your body with the same products you wash your face with? Do you use the same lotion or cream on your body as you do your on face? I'm going to assume that you answered no to both those questions, and I think if you're in this business you know exactly why you did. There are many reasons why you should not use a product made for the body on the face. Your face is more sensitive, more prone to irritation and it is much more noticeable when irritation occurs. I don't think any client would be happy leaving a fabulous massage to come home and see that their face did not enjoy it as much as their body did.
Massage Oils Can Be Too Heavy for Delicate Facial Skin.

When a client comes in for a service, they are hoping to unwind, relax and be pampered, not end up with clogged pores and irritated skin. If your client leaves your hands with a skin issue caused by product that should not have been used, it will not only be a problem for them but you as well. Most clients won't even notice if you are using the same products on their face and body, until it's too late. How can you prevent this irreversible mistake? Make your clients aware before someone else does! By telling your client that you are going to use a different oil and cream or lotion on their face, they will wonder why no one has offered this before. This little extra step will make your clients feel that you are knowledgeable in your craft and concerned with their face, body, skin and overall well being.

Create A Special Experience For Your Clients.
Pure Spa Direct offers many products that allow you to provide the services your clients expect and appreciate. We even carry entire product lines specializing in facial massage oils, lotions and creams that target different skin types. By providing your clients the choice of oil and lotions or creams specific to their skin type, you are giving them that extra attention that the competition does not. By adding this extra little service, that is a minimal cost to you, your clients will feel that you have gone above and beyond and will surely come back and recommend you to others. This little extra addition provides the ability to offer comfort, ease and trust, just the little extra TLC that everyone wants and needs.
