Summer Scalp Treatment!

Many people tend to forget about their scalp/top of the head when it comes to summer sun care. Here is a great treatment for clients who may be dealing with dry, itchy scalps to help provide some cooling relief:

In a rubber mixing bowl, mix together 1 tablespoon fine dead sea salt, 1 tablespoon wheatgerm oil, 5 drops peppermint essential oil and 4 drops of tea tree essential oil. Place the bowl in a mud warmer or hot towel cabinet to keep warm until ready to use.

Shampoo and rinse, give a light towel dry and apply the warmed mixture to the scalp. Gently massage the scalp for about 10 minutes. Remove with a light shampoo and rinse - that's it!

Simple, effective and cooling!

Product Of The Week: Alchimie Forever Dry Skin Balm

If you have clients suffering from dry skin, or are wanting to get their skin in silky smooth shape in anticipation of the warmer weather, take a look at the Alchimie Forever Dry Skin Balm.

The dry skin balm is chock full of  super hydrating ingredients including shea butter, watercress and jojoba. One of my favorite things is that it can be used on all skin types, including sensitive or sensitized skin. It doesn't have a weird sticky residue either, it just leaves the skin super soft.

Product Of The Week: AquaBella Abrasion-Free Peeling Liquid Facial System

Happy Friday! Hope everyone had a fun and successful week!

The product of the week (and a new favorite of mine!), is the Abrasion-Free Peeling Liquid Facial System.  If you haven't yet heard of this game changing type of facial, or are familiar with the rather expensive alternative, now is the perfect time to take a look.

A major reason this has become one of the hottest new trends is how gentle it is while remaining effective. As effective as microdermabrasion, yet gentle enough to use on all skin types and ethnicity. Instead of blasting the face with crystals (or diamond burs), this uses only liquids.

What does this mean for your clients? No down time, no bruising and immediate results. Immediate results - your clients will see and feel a difference after ONE treatment. This results in packages for your business and glowing clients.

The Aqua Bella combines powerful vacuum technology and adjustable pulsation within a robust, excellent quality system for superior infusion results. Adjustable vacuum-massage allows cleansing and hydrating solutions to consistently unclog and gently cleanse pores, aqua-foliate dead skin cells, and extract keratin, sebum, blackheads, or other impurities. Simultaneously, the hydrolyzed treatment tips smoothly glide across the skin, dispersing and infusing solutions where the skin cells are regenerating.

One of my favorite things about this - extractions are less painful! Simply turn the suction up on the machine to extract! No more painful tools or pinching!

If you want to take your facials and business to the next level in the new year, hit the ground running with this portable powerhouse!

AquaBella Overview:

Have a great weekend!

Salt vs Sugar Scrubs

Aside from the obvious difference, do your clients know which would be better for their skin? Clients may not always know the same information we think they do, and could be using the wrong product for their skin type or dermatological concerns.

While both exfoliate the skin, sugar tends to be less abrasive, making it preferable for clients with sensitive skin and gentler for use on the face or newly waxed skin. Sugar scrubs also tend to be more hydrating for the skin.

Salt scrubs are more abrasive, which makes them excellent for exfoliating before body treatments, are great for reducing inflammation and since salt is known for antibacterial properties, making it good for acne.

From back bar to retail sizing, we've got effective, profitable and great smelling options for both salt and sugar so you can customize for your clients!

Butter Your Clients Up With Shea Butter

Looking to tighten up your spending, without sacrificing anything in your services? When was the last time you took a look at shea butter?

Did you just go, "oooh shea butter, I used to use/love that a few years ago"? You're not alone! The secret weapon of some savvy spas for years has been shea butter.

Chock full of oleic acid, a super hydrating fatty acid, shea butter should be in every room, station and on every trolley. It's also one of the most versatile products I can think of, as it can be used in almost any service. Use it an add on to any service you offer, it is great for retailing, and can be used as a carrier base for essential oils.

Clients with sensitive skin? Shea butter is gentle enough for even acne prone clients.

Not sure what services it can be easily incorporated in to? Here are a few to get your thoughts moving like butter:

Hair: can be used in/as a hair mask, can be used as an add on for a scalp massage (give clients a choice of essential oil to add in as well) to any other service

Massage: can be used as a carrier for essential oils, blends well with other oils like coconut and jojoba for a ridiculously luxurious feel.

Facials: helps promote elasticity, helps fade age spots and of course, it's been rumored to be a favorite of Cleopatra to keep her skin looking young and glowing

Body Treatments: slather this on your clients with a mylar blanket for a heavenly body wrap, use after a body scrub or dry brushing treatment, mix in an abrasive of your choice (salt, sugar, raw ingredients etc) for a cost effective and hydrating scrub

Nails: you can use this as a lotion or add in sugar or salt for a scrub

Sometimes the simplest of things can have the biggest impact for your clients, and your bottom line. Shea butter is high on that list!

Hot & Spicy Scrub!

Just in time for the cooler fall weather, here's a treatment recipe to indulge your client's senses!

Hot & Spicy Scrub 
(I'm confident you'll have a more creative name!)

In a rubber mixing bowl, mix 1/4 cup Sucanat Sugar with 1/2 teaspoon of  Ginger Root Powder. Add 6 teaspoons of Grapeseed Oil and 6 drops of cinnamon essential oil and mix well. Place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabinet or a large stainless bowl of how water.

Start off the treatment with dry brushing (include it in the price of the treatment, or offer it as an add-on beneficial treatment!)  and apply the scrub according to your regular protocol (don't forget to wrap the client in plastic wrap and cover with a thermal blanket to increase the effects!). Leave on for about 15 - 20 minutes. This is the perfect time for an add-on scalp massage! Little touches like an herbal eye pack or cool pack will stand out to your clients as well. Remove the blankets and sheeting and have the client shower if you do not yet have a Vichy shower. You can also use warm damp towels and a spray bottle to remove.

Be sure to have some hot apple cider or tea on hand to complete the experience!
