Oh Honey, Honey

Honey is unlike any other ingredient in nature and has yet to be synthesized in a chemistry lab! This rich, wonderfully scented Midnight Honey Bath and Beauty Oil is an inspired preparation --true, elegant, and complex in its ability to deeply condition the skin, while restoring suppleness and unleashing the senses.

NEW! Farmaesthetics Bath and Beauty Oil - Midnight Honey / 7 oz.

INSPIRATION:
Nature's most mysterious elixir... honey is unlike any other ingredient in nature and has yet to be synthesized in a chemistry lab! Farmaesthetics' richly round, darkly-scented Midnight Honey Bath and Beauty Oil, is an inspired preparation – true, elegant, and complex in its ability to deeply condition the skin, while restoring suppleness and unleashing the senses. Use in massage, bath, shower, or as a beauty oil for spot treating dry or patchy areas of skin. Apply after bathing when body is still damp, to wrap the skin in rich, warm moisture. (For external use only even though it smells good enough to eat!)

Arnica:
Arnica is highly regarded in herbalism for its ability to diminish bruising and swelling in skin tissue. Arnica has a complex chemistry, but simply put, the herb works to affect the blood vessels so that there is rapid reduction of inflammation, the kind associated with injured tissue. A capful used in external massage or in a warm bath soak, is a simple, effective way to introduce Arnica into the system, while at the same time conditioning the skin & improving circulation. Dermatologists are now recognizing the many benefits of Arnica for patients following laser or plastic surgery.

Applications & Benefits:
Luscious, herbal massage oil for moisturizing and conditioning the whole body complexion.
Luxurious and emollient when used in the bath or applied after shower as body oil.
Great for use in full body massage, having lots of "slip" for easy application and a heady honey scent that releases with friction of massage.
Best applied on damp, warm skin.
Soy has the added benefits of phytoestrogens, said to have balancing effects on irregular hormonal activities.

AS USED IN PROFESSIONAL TREATMENTS:

  • Use as a deep conditioning massage oil for body.
  • Use in Farmaesthetics Cornmeal Scrub treatments.
  • Use in bath to release emollient benefits of soy oil and honey absolute.

Key Ingredients:
Soy Oil: One of the high-grade, cosmetic grade carrier oils. Especially chosen for its softening, uncomplicated chemistry... light enough for massage, yet safe for those with nut allergies. Very emollient and soothing to the skin.
Honey Absolute: Whether in absolute form, used for its rich round scent to "perfume" preparations, or used in its whole form to soften and soothe the skin, honey is nature's most mysterious ingredient. It holds constituents that help heal the skin, protect against infection, and soften and even the complexion to achieve a healthy "glow".
Vitamin E: Used to stabilize all of Farmaesthetics natural non-aqueous formulations. Benefits in restoring skin's elasticity. Assists in healing scars and preventing stretch marks in skin that is being stretched from pregnancy or weight gain.
Ingredients:
Sweet soy oil*, honey absolute and vitamin E (certified organic ingredients*)

Vitamins For Your Skin

From the time we are kids, we are taught the importance of vitamins to help be strong and healthy (I'm a Flinstone kid!) on the inside. As adults, we learn the importance of vitamins to help stay healthy and fight the evil forces of aging. We cannot forget the importance of vitamins for our skin, the first thing people see!

I was reading an article last week on some of the trends at The Face & Body® Midwest Spa Conference & Expo and one section was regarding a lecture on the importance of vitamins for the skin.

Here is a small sampling of the benefits of the most common vitamins:
  • Vitamin C is excellent for countering the effects of sun exposure, pollution, and smoke among other free radicals. Vitamin C also is useful in the production of collagen.
  • Vitamin E is a strong antioxidant, helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, is great on dry skin and when combined with Vitamin C you have double powered protector against the sun.
  • Vitamin A is also great for reducing the appearance on wrinkles and is beneficial in acne treatments.
  • Biotin is an extremely important B vitamin essential for hair, nails and skin. Adding a biotin treatment can give your clients an instant healthy glow. It's hydrating (think, pump!), toning and has anti inflammatory properties.

Looking for some new ideas or products rich in vitamins to boost your client's satisfaction? Check out these popular items:

SPA PANTRY Goats Milk Powder (rich in  vitamins A, C, B1, B6, B12, & E)
 Vitamin C Capsules / 10 Pack

Pour Some Sugar On Me...Perfect For Valentine's Day

Sugar tends to get a bad rep all across the world despite having some very beneficial qualities to it.
Don't get too exited, it's beneficial qualities lie in using it in skin care, not in eating cake.

Many people are aware that sugar makes an excellent scrub due to the granules, but it goes further than that. Sugar IS a great for exfoliation, it also does not clog pores and helps retain liquid. Sugar helps the skin retain moisture which in turn makes the skin stay supple and young looking.  Sugar happens to be a natural glycolic acid...yup, glycolic acid. Sugar not only hydrates the skin but it helps protect the skin from toxins and get rid of blemishes (ironic isn't it!).

There are different types of sugar you can use, each with slightly different results. White sugar is gentler than salt scrubs, brown sugar is gentler than white sugar (and smells delicious!)....two great options for those clients with extra sensitive skin! What's even better....sugar won't irritate freshly shaved skin! How many times have you or your clients, without thinking, used a salt scrub after shaving; you'd think with that kind of burn we'd remember!

Another great thing about using sugar is you can add essential oils, extracts and even vitamins. Many client's have seen great success mixing fruity scents to market the treatment as a sweet treat.

Looking for some inspiration? Let me get you started:

You can start from scratch:

SPA PANTRY Sugar Cane Crystals
SPA PANTRY Organic Sucanat Sugar

***Don't forget to try a few drops of essential oils to create signature blends!***
ESS Essential Oils
Aura Cacia Essential Oils
Lotus Touch Essential Oils

Or buy some already made (great for retailing!!!)

Lotus Touch Brown Sugar Scrub
Soothing Touch Brown Sugar Scrubs (a whole dessert cart of options here!)
Zanzibar Clove Sugar Scrub (this smells incredible!)
Giovanni Hot Chocolate Sugar Scrub

The sky is the limit on creating unique blends to sweeten your service menu!

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:
