November is national healthy skin month with the American Academy of Dermatology, are you participating in any way?

You don't need to be a dermatology office to take advantage of promoting healthy skin month. The beauty of it being all about healthy skin, the possibilities are endless!

Whether you want to offer your clients a free or discounted service add on such as skin scrubbing to get a deep clean or give out something like an at home face mask (that you're retailing!) as a gift with every facial. The  mask gifting is a great way for everyone from skin care specialists to massage therapists to promote healthy skin and giving clients a chance to sample an item before purchasing.

You can use the month to really promote at home skin care routines. From retailing facial cleansing brushes to the European vegan line Kneipp, products with SPF and
more!

Fly Away Crows Feet!

Looking for an easy add on to your facial services? Do your clients have or mention crows feet as a concern? Have you thought about incorporating microneedling?

The Micro Needle Roller Therapy System is an amazing handheld skin roller which can naturally increase the skin’s level of collagen and elastin. The steel micro-points release toxins from the skin but also allow vastly improved penetration of active ingredients (such as vitamins A & C) in treatment products. The Micro Needle creates thousands of microscopic needle marks inducing your own body's collagen to grow. These microscopic needle marks close after several minutes, locking in skin-building nutrients, supporting collagen and elastin repair. It assists in the fading the appearance of wrinkles and age spots, improving the skin's beauty, tone, and youthful appearance.

Easy to use, noticeable results after one treatment and budget-friendly - talk about a powerhouse add on! The system comes in two sizes, one to be used by professionals as it penetrates deeper and one to retail for clients for home use:

0.5mm - Professional Use:
• Skin Whitening
• Improve skin pigmentation
• Improve wrinkle (eye area)
• Improve Alopecia
• Collagen Induction
• Drug delivery

0.25mm - Personal Use:
• Skin Restoration
• Improve Alopecia
• Homecare Therapy
• Active ingredient delivery

Clients report results after just one treatment!!

Flu Facials?

It's no secret the flu has been rampant this year, along with some strong flu like illnesses going around. I've seen a few spas start to incorporate "Flu Facials" the last few weeks to help ease any lingering suffering.

If you have never had the flu, I commend your immune system! If you have had the flu, you know the muscle ache and facial pain from congestion. Once your client is on the road to recovery and back out in the world, a relaxing and clearing facial may sound heavenly!

Using products that are calming, cooling or refreshing starting with your cleanser, paying extra attention to facial pressure points. June Jacobs has a range of health driven products that would be perfect!

Warm facial towels or just a warm towel over the eyes can make a world of difference! A gentle face or scalp massage with a clearing essential oil like eucalyptus, peppermint or lemongrass makes an excellent add on service!

Making sure your towels, linens and blankets are soft and cozy along with optional herbal packs and teas can be just the thing your post flu clients are desperately needing!
