It's important to make sure you are incorporating hydrating treatments into your spa, as your clients most skin is most likely dry and chapped from the cold weather.

It's a quick, 20 minute treatment that results in super hydrated, rejuvenated hands, and your client's skin will stay hydrated from now until spring with weekly treatments!

Sleeping Beauty

It's no secret that the best and most natural way to enhance your beauty happens at night: beauty sleep!

There's good reason as to why's it's called beauty sleep. While you're at rest, your body is working hard to repair and restore your body. How does this benefit your beauty? Your skin cells turnover and heal, resulting in glowing skin and healthier hair. 

Do you offer your clients products for overnight use? Not sure where to begin? There are many ways to enhance your customers' already natural beauty regimen of a good night's rest! See below for the products we recommend here at Pure Spa Direct:



Eyes

Our eye cream from Oxygen Botanicals is perfect for your clients to use at night. Its key ingredients include Japanese Green Tea Extract, Chamomile Extract, Sweet Almond Oil, and Vitamin A, which are perfect for maintaining skin elasticity around the delicate areas of the eyes. With brighter, moisturized skin around the eyes, your clients will look more awake and beautiful! This cream can also minimize fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles. Perfect for AM use as well!





Body

Hands and feet are often neglected in an overnight routine, considering they are a couple our most used body parts! It is essential to keep them moisturized for beautifying and anti-aging purposes. Our Intensive Age Defying Hydrating Hand and Foot Cream by June Jacobs Spa Collection is a great cream for your customers to add to their nightly moisturizing routine. They are perfect for retailing (bonus points for being paraban free)!






Hair

An easy way to keep your customers' hair moisturized and soft is to use a leave in conditioner at night. Our Onesta Quench Leave-In Conditioner is made with all natural ingredients and certified organic extracts of linden, goldenseal, and orchid. Have them apply this to dry hair at night, and throw over a hair cap for a simple and easy overnight conditioning treatment!

Hand-TASTIC! Great Add-On Treatment for ALL of Your Clients

Clients complaining about ashy and dry hands? Is all the lotion and Vaseline not working? 


Beautiful, well-kept and delicate hands are important. Reminding your clients that their hands tell a number of things about who they are is important! No matter how firm the face, hands can give away their true age! Treat your clients' hands to some TLC by using a hand mask to keep their paws in perfect condition.

If they think that by washing, cleansing and moisturizing their hands is all that they can do to pamper them, remind them to think again! Your client's hands are also as exposed to heat, cold and water as their face is.  A hand treatment mask will  help them pamper our hands a little more! And no need to worry about consuming too much time....applying hand treatment masks is also an easy task!

Allow Pure Spa Direct to help you nourish your clients' hands with the Exfoliating Hand Masque / 10 Pack by uQ you and they will be sure to just LOVE! This is a GREAT add-on treatment to increase your bottom line - apply it during a facial mask, pedicure mask, or at the end of a massage - the opportunities are endless, and your clients will be even happier with the results you provide them!

Winter Friendly Manicures!


Dry, cracked skin (especially the hands!) is a common problem around this time of year. The cold weather outside and dry heat from indoors will suck the life out of your clients' hands. A great way to cater to your clients right now is to offer cold weather, winter-friendly manicures!

Hydration treatments and products are perfect for this. Using warming mitts along with the hydration products will help increase the absorption into the nails and nail beds. Nail strengtheners are definitely another great item to incorporate into these manicures because this weather causes nails to become weak and brittle. But, before you even want to think about moisturizing, exfoliation should be your first thought. Exfoliating the hands will help get rid of all the rough, dry skin. Exfoliation along with deep moisturization are the key to these winter manicures.

Don't forget about massage! Massage will help to penetrate the moisturizers deeply into the skin. Also, add-on paraffin treatments are ideal to include with winter manicures, and can help increase your profits as well.

You should also educate your clients on home care in between their appointments. Some ideas include applying cuticle oil every night to prevent cracked skin and cuticles, exfoliating 2 to 3 times a week, and wearing cotton gloves after applying a moisturizer to keep hands insulated.

Great products for your Winter- Friendly Manicures:
