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!

Steamer Issues? Stop by!

Aside from the flu, one of the most common topics buzzing right now are steamers. From an old steamer finally gave out, to one from Amazon that wasn't designed for heavy professional use couldn't handle the holiday rush.

If you've been noticing some issues or even wear and tear affecting the appearance of the steamer (clients don't want to see dirty, broken down equipment; would you?) or don't yet have a back up, you can't afford to wait any longer.

Whether you need one with ozone or aromatherapy or even a mini table top (these make great retail items as well!) for emergencies or space concerns, there are fantastic options in every price range. If you like keeping your cash flow positive, head over to the financing application!

All Natural All Organic Eye Makeup Remover

Your clients will love a natural solution to removing makeup! Plus it works as a treatment for anti-aging and is extremely soothing. Try it in every treatment and retail it too!

Farmaesthetics Eyebright Makeup Remover and Treatment Oil / 1 oz.
Remove cosmetics, ease the appearance of fine lines, and soothe tired eyes—all with a combination of soothing eyebright, which is great for tired eyes, with chamomile in simple sweet almond oil, results in a well rounded, all natural, and multipurpose oil. Apply the oil to a cotton pad, place over the eye area, and rest to allow thorough, deep absorption of herbal constituents and relieve dry, flaky, red, or irritated eyes.

Three treatments in one: Non-chemical eye make up remover, line smoothing, anti-inflammatory application to soften fine lines and wrinkles and a relaxing compress to sooth eyestrain. The herb Eyebright is known in herbalism to relieve eyestrain and redness due to fatigue from over-use, environmental irritants or allergies. As the nerves in the eyes are relaxed and strengthened, there is less strain, therefore less squinting and less rubbing. By combining Eyebright with the soothing properties of Chamomile in simple Sweet Almond Oil, one is applying an ancient remedy to an age-old complaint and removing eye makeup to boot! No missed opportunity here.

A Non-Chemical Eye Makeup Remover – Doesn't contain the harsh, synthetic, chemical solvents that are in most makeup removers and that dry and irritate, delicate eye tissue.
Tender Treatment Oil for delicate skin - Made with nature's most settling calming emollient: Chamomile is a soothing, powerful anti-inflammatory agent.
Herbal Whole Eye Treatment – Helps relax the ocular nerve. Our eyes are faced with stress and strain everyday, especially in our environmentally challenged world with computer driven business and communication, fluorescent lighting, poor indoor and outdoor air quality, air pollution from cleaning products, carpets, and chemically treated foods. Our eyes are exhausted by day's end and our eyesight is diminished with the continued strain of focusing and refocusing under often times poorly lit screens and work spaces. Grapeseed Oil stabilizes the preparation, but also yields an anti-bacterial action to the preparation.

All Facials
All Massage Treatments
All Solar Salt Bath Soaks

Eyebright Heated Eye Treatment Pads. Place warm Eyebright Treatment Oil on cotton pad and place over eye area and rest. This allows for thorough, deep absorption of the herbal constituents. If the eye area is dry, flaky, red and irritated from allergies or skin related disorders, this heated eye treatment pad will activate the beneficial emollients to the tissues.

Key Ingredients:
Eyebright Extract: Known in herbalism for relieving eyestrain, puffiness, and redness due to fatigue, environmental irritants, allergies, or over-use. As the nerves in the eyes are relaxed and strengthened, there is less strain and less tendency to squint or rub the eyes, both of which contribute to fine lines and inflammation.
Sweet Almond Oil: A light, odorless, high-grade fruit kernel oil - wonderfully nourishing to the skin.
Orange Wax: Orange wax is the semi-solid wax taken from orange rinds. The wax sourced by Farmaesthetics is derived without solvent extractions or chemical reactions, making it an all-natural ingredient. Orange wax as found in orange peels protects the fruit against the environment, allowing it to breath, while maintaining its essential water balance. When applied to the skin, it works in much the same way, making it a wonderfully emollient, gently protective ingredient, perfect for use around tender eye tissue.
Vitamin E: Used to stabilize all of Farmaesthetics natural non-aqueous formulations. Benefits in restoring skin's elasticity. Assists in healing scars and preventing stretch marks in skin that is being stretched from pregnancy or weight gain.
Grapeseed Oil: Known as a natural antioxidant – helps benefit tender tissue around the eyes.
Chamomile Essential Oil: Farmaesthetics uses oils derived from German Chamomile. This is a soothing, calming herb with anti-inflammatory properties. High in azulene, it is known to be an anti-allergenic agent and is therefore excellent for reducing puffiness around delicate eye tissue.

Product Of The Week: AquaBella Abrasion-Free Peeling Liquid Facial System

Happy Friday! Hope everyone had a fun and successful week!

The product of the week (and a new favorite of mine!), is the Abrasion-Free Peeling Liquid Facial System.  If you haven't yet heard of this game changing type of facial, or are familiar with the rather expensive alternative, now is the perfect time to take a look.

A major reason this has become one of the hottest new trends is how gentle it is while remaining effective. As effective as microdermabrasion, yet gentle enough to use on all skin types and ethnicity. Instead of blasting the face with crystals (or diamond burs), this uses only liquids.

What does this mean for your clients? No down time, no bruising and immediate results. Immediate results - your clients will see and feel a difference after ONE treatment. This results in packages for your business and glowing clients.

The Aqua Bella combines powerful vacuum technology and adjustable pulsation within a robust, excellent quality system for superior infusion results. Adjustable vacuum-massage allows cleansing and hydrating solutions to consistently unclog and gently cleanse pores, aqua-foliate dead skin cells, and extract keratin, sebum, blackheads, or other impurities. Simultaneously, the hydrolyzed treatment tips smoothly glide across the skin, dispersing and infusing solutions where the skin cells are regenerating.

One of my favorite things about this - extractions are less painful! Simply turn the suction up on the machine to extract! No more painful tools or pinching!

If you want to take your facials and business to the next level in the new year, hit the ground running with this portable powerhouse!

AquaBella Overview:

Have a great weekend!

Product Of The Week: Indira Portable Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber

Happy Friday! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!

This weeks featured product is the Indira Portable Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber by Silver Spa. A vital component to any facial, is a deep skin cleanse. Removing all of the dirt and debris from deep within the pores does not have to be a brutal process for clients, or for the technician.

This makes it an excellent alternative to microdermabrasion and gentle enough to use on clients with sensitive skin. Since you have the choice of what to use as a gliding agent, you can select ampoules to customize the facial to each client.

Here are some key reasons why skin scrubbers are so popular:

Benefits of Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber:
Improves appearance of Acne
Removes Blackheads
Diminishes Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Improves Collagen and Elastin production for Firming and Tightening
Allows for Deeper Penetration of Skin Care Products

Skin scrubbers are safe for a wide variety of skin types, including skin with:

Because of the increased blood flow, high frequency tones the skin (similar to muscle toning).

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!

Butter Your Clients Up With Shea Butter

Looking to tighten up your spending, without sacrificing anything in your services? When was the last time you took a look at shea butter?

Did you just go, "oooh shea butter, I used to use/love that a few years ago"? You're not alone! The secret weapon of some savvy spas for years has been shea butter.

Chock full of oleic acid, a super hydrating fatty acid, shea butter should be in every room, station and on every trolley. It's also one of the most versatile products I can think of, as it can be used in almost any service. Use it an add on to any service you offer, it is great for retailing, and can be used as a carrier base for essential oils.

Clients with sensitive skin? Shea butter is gentle enough for even acne prone clients.

Not sure what services it can be easily incorporated in to? Here are a few to get your thoughts moving like butter:

Hair: can be used in/as a hair mask, can be used as an add on for a scalp massage (give clients a choice of essential oil to add in as well) to any other service

Massage: can be used as a carrier for essential oils, blends well with other oils like coconut and jojoba for a ridiculously luxurious feel.

Facials: helps promote elasticity, helps fade age spots and of course, it's been rumored to be a favorite of Cleopatra to keep her skin looking young and glowing

Body Treatments: slather this on your clients with a mylar blanket for a heavenly body wrap, use after a body scrub or dry brushing treatment, mix in an abrasive of your choice (salt, sugar, raw ingredients etc) for a cost effective and hydrating scrub

Nails: you can use this as a lotion or add in sugar or salt for a scrub

Sometimes the simplest of things can have the biggest impact for your clients, and your bottom line. Shea butter is high on that list!
