Delicious Services For Spring: Papaya Facials!


Though papayas are technically available all year long, this delicious fruit tends to peak in the early summer. Get ahead of the curve, and start incorporating papaya facials and other services into your spa right before summer starts! Papayas contain many components that are good for the skin to help keep it healthy looking. Along with the Papain enzymes, it is good a source of antioxidants and nutrients such as Vitamin C, Vitamin B, carotenes, and flavonoids, fiber and minerals like magnesium and potassium which are all great for maintaining skin health!

Not sure where to begin? We have an amazing Papaya Purifying Enzyme Masque by June Jacobs that you can incorporate into facials! This clarifying enzyme masque contains a highly effective combination of papaya’s natural fruit enzyme, papain, with extracts of mango and pineapple, to gently dissolve dead surface impurities allowing nourishing oils of sweet almond and borage seed to penetrate, improving tone and elasticity of the skin. It also smells amazingly delicious, and I'm sure you're clients will love it! I also highly recommend our June Jacobs Papaya Enzyme Facial Treatment Kit - it includes everything you need to get started with your papaya facials.

Fall Isn't Just for Pumpkins!

Pumpkin lattes, pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin beer, pumpkin body cream, pumpkin tampons (wait these actually DONT exist, and should never)...by the time October hits, almost every retail product and food item is associated with a pumpkin. Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed my PSL from Starbucks this morning, my apartment is already stocked with pumpkin candles and pumpkin body cream, and cans of pumpkin puree are in my kitchen waiting to be made into festive pumpkiny treats. I think it's time to give the pumpkins a break (at least for this blog post) and highlight another festive fall scent that is often overlooked: Ginger Red Currant!

If you haven't already started incorporating fall scents into your spa products yet, what are you waiting for? I'm sure you're fully stocked on pumpkin, but have you considered Ginger Red Currant as a new scent to add to your spa? The smooth fruity scent of red currant combined with spicy ginger will make your clients excited for the upcoming cooler months as well as the holidays that are rapidly approaching! 

We have an amazing product in stock now for fall. Check out our Maxim Pedi Redi Red Ginger & Currant scrub! This scrub soften calluses and cuticles and will remove dead skin while significantly reducing scrubbing time for the pedicurist. This specially formulated product contains the delicious essential and fragrance oils of red currant and ginger. Get this in your spa for the upcoming months, and your clients will thank you!

Face Fruit - Natural Exfoliation

Exfoliation is not something new, as you and your clients are well aware of.  There are different types of products that can be used to exfoliate the skin. Are you utilizing the power of fruit enzymes for exfoliation?

Fruit enzymes are particularly good for clients with oily and mature skin types.  Fruit enzymes help gently remove (digest) dry, dull, superficial layers of the skin to leave a smoother, more youthful look.

The top two that seems to always be flying out of the warehouse are papaya and pumpkin - perfect for going into the fall season!

The Papaya Purifying Enzyme Masque by June Jacobs is always a great choice. Paraben and preservative free, the natural fruit enzymes combined with things like sweet almond oil and borage help improve the look and feel of the skin. It's available in back bar and retail sizes, be sure to have some retail sizes on hand!

The Papaya Enzyme Peel by Ayur-Medic Skincare is another option that is chock full of papaya goodness as well as lactic, salicylic, and acetic acid to help clear the skin.

If you prefer mixing your own, take a look at the Exfoliating Papaya Enzyme Mask / 1 Lb. Bulk by uQ. This pairs well with the Fruit Acid Peel Ampoules by uQ!

Just like the papaya, the Pumpkin Peeling Enzyme Masque by June Jacobs is a top seller. Full of essential fatty acids, vitamins A and C, as well as zinc, this helps exfoliate and aid in the healing process - all leaving the skin glowing!

Not to be outdone, Ayur-Medic has a phenomenal Pumpkin Exfoliant that is effective yet gentle!

For those clients that seem to have skin that is overly oily or just needs a gentle, effective exfoliation, be sure to have some fruit enzyme exfoliating products
on hand!

An Avocado A Day

Aside from being one of the most delicious, satisfying fruits (that's right.. they are a fruit!), as well as a decadent Mexican dip (I could live off guacamole), avocados are also packed with a slew of beautifying properties! Native to Mexico and Central America, avocados are technically a large berry packed with fatty acids, antioxidants, and an abundance of nutrients that are beautifying. See below for some of the beauty benefits they offer, as well as avocado products we have here at Pure Spa Direct for your spa!

Healthy Hair
Avocados help to revitalize hair to make it shiny and healthy looking. They are also perfect for treating a dry and itchy scalp.




Rub some of our Pure Avocado Oil onto your client's scalps to keep their hair healthy, smooth, and moisturized!







Glowing Skin
Avocados are highly nutritious and filled with vitamins and minerals to get that healthy glow for your clients' skin. They are also filled with fatty acids which are great for moisturizing and maintaining skin elasticity.



Incorporate our Olive and Avocado Therapeutic Hydrating Massage Cream by Amber Products into your next massage treatment! It's perfect for your clients with extra dry skin,






Anti-aging
Filled with anti-oxidants to prevent free radicals which causes aging, avocados are great for reducing wrinkles and maintaining a youthful appearance! You might want to consider using avocado facials as an anti-aging treatment at your spa.


Our Avocado and Grapefruit Facial Mask by Queen Helene is made with a unique gel-clay formula to lift away your client's skin impurities and give them a healthy, youthful glow.








DIY Avocado Face Mask
To get the utmost out of the benefits of an avocado, why not create your own Avocado Mask with these Customized Treatment Facial Masks? All you need is 3 teaspoons of a ripe avocado and 1-2 teaspoons of honey. Mix the two ingredients together, put one of these compressed mask pills in the liquid, and you have your very own avocado face mask for your clients!

Go Bananas with Banana Spa Products for Spring!

Aside from being super delicious and one of my favorite fruits, did you know that bananas are a beautifying food? A recent article I read claims that bananas help to hydrate cells and keep the skin smooth and moisturized due to their high potassium content. They also contain significant amounts of vitamin C and B6, which helps to maintain skin elasticity and act as a natural moisturizer. With the warmer months coming up, you might want to try incorporating a fun new treatment in your spa! 

We have a variety of banana products here are Pure Spa Direct that I love! Check below for some of my favorites...






Check out this banana mask, which can be a great way to add variety to your normal facial menu. It's loaded with skin nourishing banana extract to help maintain smooth skin. This is a very unique mask that will sweeten up any facial treatment!










With the warmer months coming up, why not change up the soap you're currently using in your spa's bathroom to something seasonal? This liquid hand soap by Pure and Basic in wild banana and vanilla is a delicious and aromatic summer scent that your clients will love! It's also paraben free!








Are you looking for a fun way to change the decor in your spa? This banana leaf runner is a great way to showcase your merchandise to customers and make it seem like they're in the tropics! It's also great for displaying treatment products, refreshments, or other amenities your spa has.






Yellow is a great nail polish color for spring and summer. Our Jessica Custom Nail Color Polish in Banana Peel is a lovely creamy yellow your customers will love! This polish is meant for natural nails and is completely free of formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor. It's also eco-friendly, vitamin enriched for maximum conditioning, and contains UVA/UVB to protect nails from the sun's damaging rays.. all pluses in my book!

After a long, cold winter, summer is finally in full swing! Clients have steadily been increasing their spa visits since spring, and for many, it is a regular part of their summer routine.

A popular trend that seems to be flying through our warehouses, is fruit! Fruit themed mani/pedis, fruit facials, melon paraffin/paraffin alternative, fruit massage...everything! I'm not sure if it's everyone loving all of the fresh fruit options readily available or the fun colors and scents!

Here are some of the most popular recently:


Now is the time when more people are opting for brighter colors, and are more open to trying out new things...anything to help achieve an all around summer glow!
