Year Round Sun Defense

Just because the summer has now passed, does not mean clients can forgo protecting their skin from the sun. The effects of the sun on the skin does not differentiate between seasons, as handy as that may be for some. It is not uncommon to see sunburn even in the winter.

Don't let your clients chance any damage to their skin simply because the temperature or seasons are changing. Get them on a routine of sunscreen or daily lotion with SPF! Here are a few top favorites from spas and salons across the world, throughout the year:

BurnOut 18.9% Zinc Oxide Eco Sensitive Skin Sunscreen - a long time best seller!

Alchimie Forever Daily Defense Cream SPF 23 - this entire line is effective and affordable! Non-comedogenic, this hydrating formula provides protection against UVA and UVB, while moisturizing with antioxidant and anti-aging effects. Ideal for all skin types and suitable for sensitive or sensitized skin.

June Jacobs SPF products -paraben and preservative free, June Jacobs products with SPF deliver the quality and effectiveness expected from her line

Whether you finish your facials with an SPF product with the end result of retailing or simply retail, clients should be aware of the importance of year-round diligence against sun damage!

SOAP And You

When I was in massage school, our teachers instilled in us the importance of keeping detailed client records or, SOAP notes. At the time, many thought of it as a way to simply to track progress and as a refresher to jog our memories. It wasn't until we actually got out into the world to practice, to really understand the impact of SOAP notes.

For those unfamiliar with the term, SOAP notes stand for the following:

Subjective
Objective
Assessment
Plan


While keeping detailed client notes is an excellent way of charting progress and change, it is vital in business to protect yourself. If, for some reason, a situation arose where your services were questioned (medical reasons, insurance, legal etc), having detailed accounts of each client is imperative. It is much easier and more reliable to refer to documented information than that of "let me think for a second" and try to remember. It is also important to remember to document what the client tells you, from medications to likes/dislikes - you'd be surprised how these seemingly small pieces of information can have a huge impact!

It also gives your clients the confidence that you're paying attention to them, their body and their needs. Confident clients are loyal clients!

Be Memorable!

Do your clients refer to you for one specific reason aside from, "the place I get my facials"?

Do they refer to you as "XYZ, they have this amazing Caviar Facial that is unlike any other!?

Big difference there. Do you have a signature? If you do, what sets it apart from anything they can get down the block, or next town over?

Be the place that smells like warm vanilla when you walk in, that offers a signature Cinnamon & Clove scrub in the winter, that is to die for!

Be the massage therapist who not only gives a phenomenal massage, but offers a delicious smelling butter rum hand and foot treatment during the winter!

You can have a year round signature, seasonal or whatever works best for your style - just don't forget to see what's new, and how your competition is evolving.

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!

Back To School Specials!

We're in the midst of enjoying the summer, and school seems to have just let out however, summer will be winding down and before you know it, kids will be heading back to school.

Do you offer any special back to school services or incentives to boost sales? Aside from the usual end of summer hydrating body treatments, why not offer "school specials" like back or teen facials?

Everyone wants to look and FEEL their best on the first day of anything, especially the first day of school. Talking to parents about the benefits of skin care and skin health for their kids should be happening in more spas. It's never too soon to take care of your skin or to get your kids into a great skin care routine.

For high school and college kids, why not offer a special rate on specific services when they show their school id?

Need some product ideas? Here are some products that are always best sellers this time of year:

Acne Modeling Mask by Martinni
Fruit Collagen Mask - Kiwi Fruit Acne Clearing Mask
Tabletop Multiwave LED Light Therapy - LED Treatments in 7 Wavelengths
Quasar Led For Acne
Control Corrective Acne Line
Clarifying Lotion Toner by Endear Skin Care Solutions
