Balance in a Bottle

Balance... the magic word! As a full time working mother, I definitely strive to achieve balance. I am sure many of your clients do too! They come in during their free time, which we know is limited. We try to balance our life, but sometimes that can't be controlled. So what can we control?

Your skin!

Provide an intense, aromatic experience with the Absolute Aromas Balance Face Oil.

Designed to purify and treat oily, combination, and blemished skin. This non-greasy, easily absorbed facial oil is formulated with Ylang Ylang to help balance the production of sebum. It aids in clarifying and regulating overactive skin.

Introduce in your services, and offer the smaller version to retail!

I also love the Balancing Beauty Oil by Amber Products!

It is a combination of Argan Oil and Acai Berry Oil that is rich in essential nutrients. The oil has an intense anti-inflammatory and natural antiseptic properties for healing and balancing the skin's natural oil production.

Designed to improve the skin's clarity and complexion. This oil penetrates the skin quickly to reveal a healthy, luminous glow. Balancing Beauty Oil can also be used to improve the health and vitality of hair and nails too!

Makes a great retail product!

Purge Your Pores

Do you have a client with troubled skin? If they desperately need to be rid of impurities, you can help! I like to think of it as "Pore Rehab!"


What is pore rehab?

Bioelements to the rescue!

It is an at-home treatment, to drastically improve your client's skin between appointments. Apply Bioelements Kerafole facial mask every day for one week. This intensive treatment plan will sweep away dulling cells, uncovering fresh, revitalized skin.

When used for 7 days straight (no skipping), skin will experience a complete "purge" of its impurities and emerge looking clearer, smoother and brighter.

Once pore rehab is completed, simply use 2 times a week, results will last 6 months!

What does it do?

Reveals a new radiance with this 10-minute, tingling face mask. Skin will appear brighter and feel smoother. Impurities gone. Pores improved. Skin revitalized!

Also available in a smaller 2.5 oz size!

The Moment of Truth: Skin Analysis

Skin goals... we all have them! Whoever your client is, and no matter what brought them to you, you want to ensure they are happy with their results... right?

How are you educating your clients? The consultation is so important! Before an esthetician even touches a client, they already have an idea of your skin type. By sitting down and talking about a clients skin goals, you are learning how you can help them. Everybody has different goals, and the experience is completely individual!

We have some helpful tools that will elevate your consultation, and show your clients the benefits of their facial.

1) Use a Wood's Lamp! My pick is the Wood's Lamp by Equipro.

A Wood's lamp is essentially a handheld black light, for your skin! It shows aspects of the skin that are not visible to the naked eye. Woods Lamps help gives a clearer view of what is happening. It will show oily skin, dead skin, sun damage, congested pores, dry skin, and other skin conditions.

Pro Tip: Use the woods lamp before and after a client's first microdermabrasion treatment, to show the difference just one treatment makes immediately. Then offer a discounted package for clients trying this service for the first time.

2) Use the Bio-Therapeutic BT-Analyze / Digital Skin Moisture Analyzer. This little tool is a powerhouse!

It uses advanced technology to calculate the moisture content levels of the skin. This device is used in multiple zones of the face to clearly define the needs of each area. Each reading is saved and displayed on the intelligent LCD screen so that it can be documented at the end of the analysis.

This tool gives quick scientific guidance to clients and begins the process of making them an active participant in understanding their skin function and need for specific products and services to reach their goals.

Pro Tip: Use this with your signature facial, before and after using your basic products. It is showing how well the professional products work, and helps boost your retail!

3) Sit down with the client, and use a Skin Scope! My pick is the Visiderm Skin Scanner by Equipro!

This Skin Scanner uses black light and magnification to show a variety of skin imperfections that are undetectable with the naked eye. Your client can simultaneously view what the technician sees. It can help sell your esthetic products and services by revealing skin conditions to the client.

Pro Tip: Boost client comfort during the consultation. Offer herbal neck wraps with infused water, to help relax your clients before the treatment, and after.

Vac-Spray Beauty Benefits

When I get a facial, I am always so amazed by how clean my skin is! Quite simply, during a facial, you are getting a clean that you simply can't get at home. What are you using to achieve this deep clean?

One of the best, most effective ways to clear out the pores is with suction! A vacuum is used just like a household vacuum. It cleans the pores by suctioning out the embedded dirt and oil. While the suction cleans, the vacuum provides a penetrating massage and stimulates blood flow.

The spray is used to flush out these freshly vacuumed pores, to thoroughly clean the surface of the skin. The spray can be used with water to rinse, moisten, or soothe the skin. Also great to use with products!

Interested, but on a budget? Take a look at the Encore Table Top Vacuum / Spray Two Function Machine! At this low price, after use in 2 services, it is pure profit.

However, my top pick is the Silhouet-Tone Cirrus Vac Spray!

Vac Spray Includes:
  • 1 blackhead cupping glass: to loosen comedones in difficult areas like the nose, chin, and ears. It's used prior to manual extraction.
  • 1 anti-wrinkle cupping glass: increases blood circulation; oxygenates the skin and stimulates cell nutrition.
  • 1 facial massage cupping glass: provides intense oxygenation of the skin through blood and lymph circulation. Ideal for eye treatments.
Want to see some more options, click here! No matter what you choose, this is proven to be an effective unit to provide a deep clean, and boost client satisfaction!

Push it Real Good

Lately, I have been hearing more and more inquiries about Galvanic units! Do you have one? If you don't, how are you making sure your effective skincare products are being pushed into the skin?

Galvanic facial machines offer a solution for that. The machine promotes the absorption of products used on the skin, driving them deeper into the pores so they can work. They also help tighten the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of fine line and wrinkles.

My Pick:
Ioniderm Galvanic Machine by Equipro paired with Dr. Temt Aqua Lift Ampoule ...truly the Dynamic Duo!



Galvanic facial machines use electric current to create two significant reactions in esthetics: chemical (disincrustation) and ionic (iontophoresis).


It converts oscillating current from an electrical outlet into a direct current. Electrons are then allowed to flow continuously in the same direction. This creates a relaxation response that can be used to target specific nerve endings in the epidermis.

A galvanic treatment paired with Dr. Temt's highly effective Aqua Lift formula empowers skin to look more lifted and contoured - FAST.

It's instantly refreshing and hydrating. Aqua Lift is an excellent facial treatment for rejuvenating the skin's appearance for important occasions

See other ampoule options here to target other skin types! We have it all for any of your client's needs.

Do You Even Cup, Bro?

Cupping therapy is a trend that is growing increasingly popular! I have seen anybody from professional athletes and celebrities to my own family members reaping the benefits!

Cupping is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin; practitioners believe this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing.

RockPods are a great complimentary treatment to manual therapy for temporary relief of pain. These rubbery suction pods make for a simple, noninvasive alternative to traditional myofascial cupping therapy.

RockPods use decompressive technology to loosen and lift connective tissue, and increase blood and lymph flow to the skin and the muscles. They stimulate the body’s natural healing process to treat chronic pain, relieve tension, and sedate the nervous system.

Why are RockPods Better?

  • 100% food grade silicone is easier to keep clean and sterile than glass or plastic
  • The built-in handles create the suction – no flame or separate vacuum device required
  • Promotes internal glide: move the skin with the cup, not the cup itself
  • Two levels of suction: plunger and inversion
  • Can be used with RockSauce, RockRub, and RockTape

Features:

  • Two sizes allow for treating different target areas
  • Comes with EVA carrying case
  • Handles allow for manipulation of the skin
  • Detailed quick start guide included
