Head Off Dry Winter Skin Through Retail

In a perfect world, every client would be able to come see you on a regular schedule to address any and all skin concerns. Time and money get in the way of that so having seasonal "go to" retail products can be successful.  Depending on where you live, dry winter skin can be a challenge for many of your clients.

Farmaesthetics Herbal Hydration Complex - Remedy Reserve Mask makes an excellent addition to any retail line up. Aside from being awarded the best "5 Minute Complexion Makeover", this 100% natural mask is great for any skin type. From calming irritations to being touted as a great hangover recovery mask (perfect for holiday party season!) your clients can use this to maintain moisture levels between services and for repairing.

The size and packaging makes it great for gifts for family, friends, coworkers and makes a great travel companion for your on the go clients!

Combat the 4 S's- Sun, Smoke, Sugar, and Stress

My new favorite brand is Farmaesthetics! I am obsessed with their packaging paired with their overall effectiveness. Made with completely natural, organic ingredients for multiple uses! All come with both a professional and retail size, making it an easy for your services and retail!

This weeks favorite of mine is Farmaesthetics Hand to Heel Softening Salve
When I first saw this product I thought it would be great for feet, heels specifically. But this all natural salve has more uses and is not limited to just that!
Applications & Benefits:

  • Softens rough, dry elbows, knees and heels
  • Cuticle and nail- bed treatment
  • Callus softener
  • Useful on diabetic skin conditions, such as cracked hardened heels.
  • Relieves symptoms of eczema (on infants as well).
  • Softens dry, flaking "cradle cap" in infants.
  • Diaper salve for baby rashes
It protects and heals the effects of work, wear and tear, exposure to the elements, wounds, burns (even those produced by laser surgery), bruises, and eczema (including childhood and nervous onset). 

Calendula is a heady resinous marigold flower that contains potent active healing constituents. Nature's most unique compound, beeswax, provides germ killing protective barriers that lock in moisture. Lavender is added for its antiseptic, anti-inflammatory agents, as well as a soothing scent, and a settling effect on the skin and nervous system. Peppermint and Beta Carotene add additional building blocks for tissue rejuvenation.

Cold Season Help... for Retail

Have you heard about Farmaesthetics yet?

I cannot say enough about this brand! The client response is phenomenal!
Trade the preservatives, dyes, and fake fragrances for wholesome herbs, flowers, grains, and oils. Farmaesthetics professional and retail natural skin care incorporate the 100% pure, organic elements your clients crave and leave out the artificial ingredients for a refreshing change. Natural and effective skin care based on herbal traditions.

Easy to add to your menu, with a manageable number of products. Beautiful apothecary looks for retail boutiques.

Farmaesthetics is making the perfect elixir for this season and you can retail it!

Farmaesthetics Vapor Bath Elixir / 4 oz.
Farmaesthetics Vapor Bath Elixir is "a spa in a bottle", as it has been called, this vibrant green Vapor Bath Elixir is full of essential oils to warm the body and relax the mind. This chlorophyll-infused preparation will soften, purify, and deodorize the skin, while vaporous essential oils release to open congestion and relax tight or achy muscles. Use as a deep herbal soak to revitalize the entire system.

WHAT the Key Ingredients are and WHY they work
  • Chlorophyll: Known as liquid sunshine, liquid chlorophyll is nontoxic and soothing to body tissues when applied in an external bath.
  • Menthol: A soothing compound derived from the peppermint plant. If used in small amounts, menthol generates a cool heat, activated by the friction of "rubbing". 
  • Clove Essential Oil: Long used to treat fungal infections, the kind that impact nail beds, cuticles, and feet, clove is an antibacterial as well. It has powerful local antiseptic and mild anesthetic actions was known as a decongestant and inhalation for colds. It is less known but highly valued for its bactericidal and antiviral action. It not only relieves nasal congestion but also is known to actually inhibit the proliferation of the cold virus. In massage, it is relieving to muscular aches and pains.
  • Lavender Essential Oil: It stimulates and rejuvenates the skin and restores the skin's natural balance in oil production. It also stimulates sore, exhausted muscles and soothes the nerves, while acting as an aromatic astringent.
  • Geranium Essential Oil: Oil derived from the geranium flower. Like virtually all the flower oils, it is an antidepressant and antiseptic and is valued for its astringent and antiseptic properties. 
  • White Camphor Essential Oil: Known for its value in treating colds, chills, and inflammatory complaints, it relieves skin irritation. In cases of nervous excitement, it has a soothing and quieting result
  • Glutamate (aclyglutamate): A delicate cleansing agent derived from natural sugar cane; adds the slip to the preparations as well as the gentle action of removing excess oil. 
  • Vegetable Glycerin: Used as a humectant, it actually attracts moisture from the air and binds it to the skin's surface. It also provides a protective barrier on the skin so as to retain its moisture.

Farmaesthetics Deep Lavender Rub / 4 oz.
Voted "Favorite Product" by Spa Magazine beauty editors and "Best in New England" by Yankee Magazine, this herbal ode to Vicks® Vapo Rub® is a deep comfort rub that utilizes the heat-producing essential oils of ginger, rosemary, and eucalyptus to relax and release upper respiratory tightness due to colds, allergies, stress, or asthma. It is also an excellent lineament for stiff or strained muscles due to overexertion or inactivity (both extremes can yield sore muscles). Deep Lavender Rub is a powerful preparation that is gentle enough for a child.

Purpose:
Deep Heat Comfort Rub for relieving upper respiratory tightness due to colds or allergies. Apply to chest or neck area, then cover with a warm towel to super-charge effects of the essential oils and herbs, to relax tension and aid in a good night's sleep.

Sinus Relief by opening nasal passages. As essential vapors are released and inhaled, there is an "opening" of the sinuses, helping relieve stuffiness and easing mental tension and headache. The releasing heat of our herbal rub will help increase circulation and blood flow to the face, and this is excellent for optimizing a healthy complexion.

Muscular Massage is greatly enhanced by using Deep Lavender Rub, not only for the aroma therapeutic qualities of Ginger, Eucalyptus, Lavender, and Rosemary, but also for their ability to penetrate muscle tissue and relax tension from a range of conditions like flu, illness, or sports.

Hand and Foot Treatments are all the better when enhanced with Deep Lavender Rub. Whether its a hand and foot massage you give yourself at the end of a long day or one administered to someone in need of TLC, applying a small amount of Deep Lavender Rub with massage, to soles and palms, will super-charge the healing benefits of the treatment. (Did you know that the soles of the feet and palms are the most vulnerable areas of the body for taking in herbal constituents?) Wrapping hands or feet in warm towels after application, will further soften skin and maximize the relaxation response.

Key Ingredients:
  • Sweet Almond: It stimulates and rejuvenates the skin and restores the skin's natural balance in oil production. It also stimulates sore, exhausted muscles and soothes the nerves, while acting as an aromatic astringent.
  • Ginger Essential Oil: One of the best of the heat producing essential oils - known to stimulate and increase circulation.
  • Eucalyptus Essential Oil: Best known as a decongestant and inhalation for colds. It is less known but highly valued for its bactericidal and antiviral action. 
  • Rosemary Essential Oil: Another of the heat producing oils, chosen for its ability to stimulate the nervous system and to increase circulation when used in conjunction with massage. Used in an upper body massage or in steam inhalation, the oil has the ability to "clear the head". 
  • Peppermint Essential Oil: Cools the skin. Relieves the discomforts of heat rash. Reduces the itch and sting of insect bites. 
Incorporate into your treatments and retail for fall and winter!

Oh Honey, Honey

Honey is unlike any other ingredient in nature and has yet to be synthesized in a chemistry lab! This rich, wonderfully scented Midnight Honey Bath and Beauty Oil is an inspired preparation --true, elegant, and complex in its ability to deeply condition the skin, while restoring suppleness and unleashing the senses.

NEW! Farmaesthetics Bath and Beauty Oil - Midnight Honey / 7 oz.

INSPIRATION:
Nature's most mysterious elixir... honey is unlike any other ingredient in nature and has yet to be synthesized in a chemistry lab! Farmaesthetics' richly round, darkly-scented Midnight Honey Bath and Beauty Oil, is an inspired preparation – true, elegant, and complex in its ability to deeply condition the skin, while restoring suppleness and unleashing the senses. Use in massage, bath, shower, or as a beauty oil for spot treating dry or patchy areas of skin. Apply after bathing when body is still damp, to wrap the skin in rich, warm moisture. (For external use only even though it smells good enough to eat!)

Arnica:
Arnica is highly regarded in herbalism for its ability to diminish bruising and swelling in skin tissue. Arnica has a complex chemistry, but simply put, the herb works to affect the blood vessels so that there is rapid reduction of inflammation, the kind associated with injured tissue. A capful used in external massage or in a warm bath soak, is a simple, effective way to introduce Arnica into the system, while at the same time conditioning the skin & improving circulation. Dermatologists are now recognizing the many benefits of Arnica for patients following laser or plastic surgery.

Applications & Benefits:
Luscious, herbal massage oil for moisturizing and conditioning the whole body complexion.
Luxurious and emollient when used in the bath or applied after shower as body oil.
Great for use in full body massage, having lots of "slip" for easy application and a heady honey scent that releases with friction of massage.
Best applied on damp, warm skin.
Soy has the added benefits of phytoestrogens, said to have balancing effects on irregular hormonal activities.

AS USED IN PROFESSIONAL TREATMENTS:

  • Use as a deep conditioning massage oil for body.
  • Use in Farmaesthetics Cornmeal Scrub treatments.
  • Use in bath to release emollient benefits of soy oil and honey absolute.

Key Ingredients:
Soy Oil: One of the high-grade, cosmetic grade carrier oils. Especially chosen for its softening, uncomplicated chemistry... light enough for massage, yet safe for those with nut allergies. Very emollient and soothing to the skin.
Honey Absolute: Whether in absolute form, used for its rich round scent to "perfume" preparations, or used in its whole form to soften and soothe the skin, honey is nature's most mysterious ingredient. It holds constituents that help heal the skin, protect against infection, and soften and even the complexion to achieve a healthy "glow".
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.
Ingredients:
Sweet soy oil*, honey absolute and vitamin E (certified organic ingredients*)

Farmaesthetics products are 100% natural, contain certified organic ingredients as indicated, are hypo-allergenic, non-irritating & dermatological tested, with a certified shelf-life of 2 years from the date of opening. No animal testing.

When a client mentions they are getting ready to leave, are currently travelling or just got back from travelling - you have a perfect transition to retail.

If they're getting ready to leave, how are they taking care of their skin while away?

You can educate them on the importance of keeping up with their routines while away and help them find the best products for their skin concerns. They will be appreciative of your care, which will lead into increased retail sales.

You can opt to go with kits packaged by the manufacturers, make your own kits ahead of time to match your business, or have something like a "choose your own kit". For that kit, pick however many items you select for the from for the client to fill a travel cosmetic bag. You can even tier it with a small, medium and large bag, whatever works best for you!

Here are some of favorites of clients of ours from across the world:
