Exfoliate Your Way To Success!

My most favorite mode of exfoliation has to be my trusty rotary brush. Such a simple way to give your clients glowing, smooth skin!

Now is the best time to invest in your new favorite tool. The summer sun creates dry, dull skin tones which will need to be exfoliated to reveal that healthy summer glow they worked so hard for! A rotary brush is simple, and effective. Even the most sensitive skin types love this treatment!

The Meishida Portable Rotary Facial Brush is a cost effective way to introduce this treatment into your menu. Watch your weekly profits soar! 

Happy Brushing :)

Mud - Making The World A Better Place One Person At A Time!

Pretty drastic statement there, right?!?

It's the truth, in a way :) When we look our best, we feel our best which in turn tends to make us happier people. Happy people make the world a better place - here's where the mud comes in!

I'm sure you've noticed over the last few years, the natural movement is still growing. Clients are concerned about ingredients and the chemicals going in or on their bodies. Alaska Glacial Mineral Mud is a 100% natural mud that happens to be the most mineral rich mud on the market today!

You can use the Alaska Glacial Mineral Mud in facials, body wraps and even nail services! It is great for exfoliating and detoxifying the skin - it's gentle enough where it does not dry out the skin either! This is is especially important for clients with sensitive skin!

The lavender peppermint blends have been flying out of the warehouse this month! It smells wonderful and the peppermint adds the slightest tingling feeling that is amazing! As an added bonus, they make retail sized muds and soaps that are also great for gifts, packages and giveaways!

Goodbye Dull Dry Skin, Hello Beach Ready Glow!

Everyone is rushing to their spas/wellness centers to get rid of their dull, dry winter skin. The rush on hydrating and brightening products are in full swing!  Here is an awesome menu idea to freshen up your Spring body treatments! This body wrap will help smooth, exfoliate and hydrate the skin while the relaxing their cares away!

Spring Hydrating Body Wrap (I'm sure you're more creative at treatments names that will fit in with your regular menu!)

You may wish to prepare this before the client comes in to maximize time.

Prep:

Body Wrap:

Combine 4T of Sedona Mud Powder, 1T of Egg White Powder and 2t of Clove Powder  in a large rubber mixing bowl.  Add in 6T of water and stir until a paste like consistency.

Add in 15 drops of Sweet Orange Pure Essential Oil  (if you have a client who does not like orange scents or for male clients, try using 5-10 drops spearmint or 5-7 drops cedarwood essential oil instead). Mix in 3T of Organic Corn Meal and mix well (the cornmeal may soak up the liquid once it sits, you can add more water if it is too dry. If the mix becomes to wet, you can add in more of the Sedona Mud Powder).

Place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabinet or even in a stainless steel bowl filled with hot water to warm the mixture is warm and feels luxurious when applied.

Moisturizer:

In a medium rubber mixing bowl, mix 2T of Whipped Shea Butter with 5 drops Sweet Orange Pure Essential Oil (again you can substitute 5-10 drops spearmint or 5-7 drops cedarwood essential oil)


Dry brushing the client prior to the body wrap is an excellent way to start if you don't already begin that way. Once you have prepped as you normally do for wraps, check the temperature of the warmed mixture to be sure it is at a comfortable temperature before applying. Apply the mask as usual, being sure to pay extra attention to extra dry areas, especially feet, heels,knees and elbows. Once the mask has been applied, wrap the client in plastic sheeting followed by a thermal blanket. Leave on for approximately 15-20 minutes ---now is a great time for add on services like scalp massage! Remove the mask as you normally do and follow with the moisturizer!

Clear Skin - A Never Ending Story

Acne, blackheads, white heads  and blemishes are a problem that everyone at some point in their life has dealt with and not just in their youth. These issues affect people of all ages for various reasons.

How many times have you said or heard the following..." I don't want to go out, I'm too embarrassed because of how bad my skin is breaking out right now," or something along those lines? Skin care professionals are in an amazing position to not only help clear up skin conditions but to give people back their confidence and feel good about themselves.

Trending Now for Estheticians: Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber

One of the most important components of a facial is a deep clean. Clients who come to your spa for regular facials crave a deeper cleaning of their pores and skin than they can achieve at home. What is an effective way of giving your clients what they want? Using an Ultrasonic skin scrubber, that's how!


Every day, new skin cells are formed at the bottom layer of the epidermis to replace the skin cells we shed from the top layer. The upper layers of the epidermis are often clogged with dirt, oil, and dead skin cells, causing the skin to lose radiance and appear dull. Ultrasonic skin scrubbers (often referred to as "skin scrubbers" or "skin spatulas") utilize ultrasound waves to speed up the natural exfoliation process, loosening and removing this oil, dirt, and other cellular debris from the pores on the surface of the skin. This is a deep exfoliation process which often results in glowing, more youthful-looking skin. 


Following exfoliation, switch your skin scrubber to the Sonophoresis mode for maximum penetration of your ampoules, toner and moisturizers of choice!


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:

  • Sensitive Skin
  • Rosacea
  • Acne
  • Aging Skin
Pure Spa Direct offers a wide variety of Ultrasonic Skin Scrubbers, from tabletop units for estheticians in spas and salons to portable units for estheticians on the go! This is one piece of equipment no esthetician should be without. Check out our most popular units below:

Portable/Cordless Skin Scrubber: Handheld Cordless SuperSonic Scrubber by SCF
Multiple-Mode Skin Scrubber: Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber by SkinMate
Ultrasonic + Skin Scrubber: Meishida The Ultrasonic & Skin Scrubber

Scrub It All Away: How to Provide a Relaxing Sugar Scrub Treatment

The most popular body treatments in a spa are body scrubs. Body scrubs remove dead skin cells and allow the skin all over the body to look younger, glowing, and rejuvenated. Sugar scrubs are especially popular, as they can be used on a wide range of skin types, including sensitive skin. Sugar scrubs are less abrasive to the skin than salt scrubs, but they leave the skin feeling silky smooth and tasting delicious!

How It Works
Granules of sugar gently exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells, leaving the skin looking fresh, clean, and more youthful. The moisturizing oils in the scrub penetrate the skin and provide deep hydration, resulting in soft and glowing skin!

For a more comprehensive tutorial on sugar scrubs, take a look at the video below:
