A Sweet Transition From Summer to Fall!

As the end of summer quickly approaches, spas are rounding out the last of the fresh, fruity treatments before transitioning into the cozy fall ones. Why not throw in something sweet to end the season off with some orange (summer feel, fall color!) centered treatments. There are so many awesome orange products, it doesn't matter what service(s) you offer, you can find great products!

Here are some favorites in all sorts of categories!

For facials:
Use a vitamin c ampoule before a mask or as the glide for use with a skin scrubber!

For body treatments:
Make your own masks, scrubs or peels! Orange peel and peeling powder are great for improving the texture and color of the skin due to all that lovely vitamin c. They also make great astringents

For nails:
Aside from the obvious orange polish and slippers/toe separators, you can add some orange essential oils to soaks, use orange peel or peeling powder to make scrubs or masks. Try out a La Palm Orange Marine Mask, salt glow, or lotion.

For massage:
Try out an orange scented lotion or add some essential oil to a carrier oil!

For everyone:
Have some orange essential oil or candles in the treatment room, offer orange teas, have orange robes and headbands.

You may also consider having a sale on orange retail items when client's purchase an orange treatment! Be creative!!!

Spring Cleaning!

Spring is officially in swing! The harsh winter weather across the United States has left many people with cabin fever. Now is the perfect time for Spring cleaning in your shop, especially right before the Spring/Summer crowds start piling in!

Here are a few tips and reminders for you Spring Clean:

Steamer Cleaning:
It's good to periodically give your steamers a good thorough cleaning. Running white vinegar through your steamer will help clean the coils and prevent damage. (Note: Do not turn on the ozone or leave the vinegar in overnight, and remember to only use distilled water.) You can read more on cleaning them and pro tips here.

Keeping a running book of all the cleaning performed in the shop is an excellent way of being sure things are in tip top shape. You can record the dates of when and how things were cleaned so there will never be any doubt.

Are all of your employees licenses up to date and proudly displayed? I've always liked the look of a framed license rather than one haphazardly taped to the wall, it seems more professional. They worked hard in school, had to pass boards and state licensing it off!

Make sure you have the right cleansers, gloves and disinfectants on hand to properly clean and sanitize your stations, floors, implements, furniture and equipment.

Check your linens, are they looking a bit dull? Or maybe you've been thinking about redecorating? Check out the stylish sheets from Sposh- they having matching table skirts, blankets, robes, pillow covers, bolster covers and even retail sets for those clients who love your look! Don't forget to be using laundry detergent that is formulated for the industry like Lotus Touch Always Fresh Laundry Detergent or Prosana™ Bioenzymatic Laundry Detergent.

In the realm of redecorating, how are you feeling about your uniform? Tired of the same ones? Check out the new styles from Noel Asmar and Barco Uniforms. Trendy, professional and so many styles to choose from!

Looking to bring in some new fresh enticing scents to make your client's happy?(when people are happy, they spend more money!) A sure fire way to create a unique scent experience that is more cost effective than plug ins or diffusers is the Scent Linq Professional Scent Diffusion System. With fragrance bottles that can last anywhere from 3 to 10 months and a variety to make everyone happy, you can't go wrong! You can read more on the Scent Linq and the science of scent marketing here.

Always make sure to follow each manufacturer instructions on cleaning your equipment to ensure no accidental damage occurs.

Food For Thought And Profit

Most businesses want to be set apart from the competition, to stand out in any number of ways. In the spa industry, having unique and differing menu options is an easy and profitable way to stand out. There are thousands of products to mix and match with to give your service menu that extra wow factor. 

One great product you may not have thought twice on bringing in is chick pea powder. Yes, chick pea powder!

Take a look here: SPA PANTRY Chick Pea Powder

The powder from my favorite nutrient and protein rich bean is great for use in body treatments!
Chick peas are packed with vitamins and nutrients that our skin loves including magnesium, beta carotene and vitamin A. 

Magnesium has been shown to help with keeping the skin young and fresh!
Beta-carotene is a great antioxidant as well as excellent for aiding in having glowing skin!
Vitamin A has been known for years to be a great ingredient in skin care and anti-aging treatments.

So, how do you incorporate chick pea powder into your menu? It's so easy you'll wonder why you haven't tried it yet.
Chick pea powder can be blended into butters, masks, muds,and wraps. Mixing ratio ½
teaspoon of chick pea powder to 1 tablespoon of base. Since the powder doesn't dissolve well in carrier oils it's recommended to use a base cream.

To go with the chick pea powder here are some great base creams:

Soothing Toch Cream

A cost effective powder that will add some new flair to your menu and keep your clients interested, everyone wins!

Tired Of The Same Old Treatments?

Do you or your staff ever feel bored with your treatment menu? You may fall into a rut explaining the same menu options over and over and over and.....right?

There are so many possibilities out there to change up what you offer by simply adding one or two new ingredients. You could even create special themed treatments depending on the style of your business or the area you are in. For example, if you are in a very dry climate you can offer a hydrating body treatment. If you are looking for alternative or green options, you can pick certain ingredients to offer a 'green treatment'

Here are some different ingredients you may not have thought of to infuse new life into your menu and your staff:

Acai Berry Powder
Activated Charcoal Powder (charcoal is great for acne prone skin, it draws out impurities)
Artichoke Leaf Powder
Kelp Granules 
Peppermint Leaf Cut
Raspberry Leaf Cut
Red Sandalwood Powder
Buchu Leaf Powder
Grapefruit Peel Powder 
Maca Root Powder

Even adding in different essential oils can revitalize a treatment. Try some of these:

ESS Clary Sage Pure Essential Oil 
ESS Egyptian Geranium Pure Essential Oil
ESS Lemongrass Pure Essential Oil 
Precious Essential Oils - Neroli in Jojoba Oil 
TheraPro Essential Oil Blend Stress Relief Fusion
ESS® Pure Essential Bergamot Oil

How about some new precious oils that are great for treatments and retailing!

Pure Baobab Oil - Organic (this is awesome for hair and skin)
Pure Olive Squalane Oil
Pure Evening Primrose Oil - Organic
Pure Sea Buckthorn Oil - Organic

There are so many great ingredients out there to keep things fresh and exciting! The possibilities are only limited to your own mind.

Barbicide- Are You Sanitizing??

We all know the importance of sanitizing, but the real question is whether or not you are doing everything you can to provide a clean and sanitary environment for your clients.  Barbicide, which is a germicidal, fungicidal, virucidal, and pseudomonacidal disinfectant, kills numerous pathogenic organisms.  It disinfects scissors, combs, brushes and salon surfaces.  It is safe for acrylic tanning beds/stainless steel/plastics.  And best of all?? Metals can be immersed for hours without rusting!

By using Barbicide you will display your understanding and commitment to using tools which have been disinfected minimizing all risk of cross infection from one client to the next.  Your clients will trust you more than ever and will never think twice about paying for your services!!

Take a look at our disinfectant products at Pure Spa Direct:

Barbicide® Disinfectant Concentrate / 64oz

King Research Barbicide Plus / 16 oz. - Tuberculocidal Disinfectant Concentrate - hospital-grade, EPA approved disinfectant

KING RESEARCH Barbicide Plus® / 16 oz.

Offer Your Clients Delicious Spring Skin Treatments with NEW Pure Body Butters!

Now that spring has officially begun, there are many products out perfect for getting your skin feeling fresh and young.

Whether you have sensitive, mature or normal skin there is something to love for everyone!

My personal favorites this time of year are whipped body butters. Their luxurious feel and super moisturizing properties make them a must have in every skin care regimen.

The most popular ones with top skin care professionals right now are:
Here are some more body butters I'm currently addicted to right now:
Not only are these great to retail to your clients for at home care to supplement the treatments you are providing them, but you can also incorporate them into specialized services.

For example, a great idea is to offer a spring hand or foot massage add-on using the Mango Butter  or a Spring Skin add-on using any of the these great body butters!

Another great way to add them in as a specialized treatment is by adding in some essentials oils!

Some great springtime scents to consider include:

If you are looking for something to make your clients swoon, as well as increase your bottom line, I highly recommend picking up some of these body butters!
