The Season for Citrus

Ahh, the endless benefits of citrus. It is a great season to incorporate citrus into your treatments. Not only is citrus light, refreshing, and uplifting but it has an endless amount of benefits!

Grapefruit brightens and revitalizes skin. Especially great for anti-aging!

My grapefruit pick is Grapefruit Infused Facial Paraffin / 2 Lb. by Amber Products! It is extra filtered pure paraffin infused with pure grapefruit essential oil.
Ideal for the congested and oily skin. High in antioxidants!

Lemon is highly effective in fighting acne, brightening, and treating hyperpigmentation.

My lemon pick is Fresh Squeezed Lemon Cleanser by June Jacobs! It is a stimulating aromatic gel cleanser infused with lemon extract to gently sweep away make-up residue, dead skin cells, and impurities.

Tangerine helps with brightening, smoothes skin, prevents, and treats acne!

My tangerine pick is Soothing Touch Salt Scrub Tangerine.  Bring harmony to your clients with Soothing Touch's delicious Tangerine Salt Scrub. This rich mixture of Dead Sea Salt, Tangerine, Ginseng and our Ayurvedic Oil Blend is formulated to bring balance to the elements in the body. This treatment creates harmony within the body to allow harmony to manifest outside as well. Nourishing oils deeply moisturize the skin while mineral-rich salt scrubs it to a shine. This neutralizing treatment has a delicious fragrance and leaves skin smooth and stabilized.

Oranges are the least acidic citrus fruit, and are great for detoxifying skin!

Orange Blossom Exfoliating Milk by Ayur-Medic Skincare
Oil-free milk removes dead skin cells with glycolic and jojoba beads for a gentle and thorough exfoliation. Orange blossom soothes and refreshes the skin.

Product Of The Week: June Jacobs Brightening Moisturizer

The recommendation I've been asked for multiple times each day this week so far, is for a moisturizer. Dry, aging skin are on the forefront of client concerns.
My mother called me a week or so ago complaining that she just can't find an effective moisturizer that brightens. She said she had tried multiple ones that were okay but none seemed to brighten. Now my mother is in her 70's and isn't up on ingredients and things like that. She is the client who just needs recommendations from someone she trusts. How many of your clients are the same?

I sent her a bottle of the June Jacobs Brightening Moisturizer as a surprise. She noticed from the start that it just felt nicer when she put it on. She enjoyed not having to slather it on (a little goes a long way with June Jacobs products!) and how fresh it felt. She called me after 4 uses excited as her skin was no longer dry, and it was brighter already.

Paraben and preservative free, lactic acid for gentle exfoliation, combines with sweet almond oil and shea butter for the hydrating effects. Lemon peel extract rejuvenates and increases the luster of tired skin, while bearberry root, mulberry root, licorice extract and Gigawhite™ act as natural lightening agents to help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation. What that all means is your clients get a one-two punch of goodness leaving their skin soft, supple and looking younger!

I'm sharing this quick story as it is important to always be aware of who your clients are, not just what is going on with their skin. We may forget, as professionals immersed in the industry, that not everyone knows what may seem "novice" or "basic" terms, products or ingredients.  

Test this out on yourself, your VIP clients or bring in a few to get clients feedback.

Lemon Restores!

Are you looking for a new special for winter that's going to set you apart from your competition?

Maybe something different than the typical winter menu items. What about lemon?

Lemon Balm is in the Mint family and is known for cooling and restoring a depleted, exhausted system...but not the kind of exhaustion that comes from exercise, sport or physical exertion, but the kind that comes when one is over-extended, anxious or unable to sleep, due to prolonged periods of mental or emotional "selflessness". This is a powerful remedy to use when mothering a newborn, dealing with a stressful emotional situation or taking care of a sick or elderly parent.

It's winter, its cold, seasonal depression kicks in, and you can give your clients a natural boost!

Try adding Farmaesthetics Lemon Balm Remedy Oil to your services.

How does it work?
Bath Soaks, Massage or Benefit Booster to any lotion. Adding 1-2 tablespoons of desired Remedy Oil to the Nourishing Lavender Milk or Nourishing Herbal Cream will super-charge the preparation to target specific conditions.

Important healing ingredients-
  1. Sweet Almond Oil: A light, odorless, high-grade fruit kernel oil - wonderfully nourishing to the skin.
  2. Lemon Balm: A member of the mint family, Lemon Balm is appropriate for use for the most sensitive and/or weakened of conditions. It is known as a potent treatment for anxiety and insomnia, especially in new mothers and pregnant women, whose systems may be depleted from all the demands and hormonal changes of their bodies. Farmaesthetics uses Lemon Balm in its whole herb form, which is a powerfully complete way to administer all the known benefits of this gentle, non-toxic herb.
  3. Vitamin E: Used to stabilize all of Farmaesthetics natural non-aqueous formulations. Benefits of restoring skin's elasticity. Assists in healing scars and preventing stretch marks in the skin that is being stretched from pregnancy or weight gain.
For an extra touch add Organic Invigorate Tea - Peppermint-Lemon Mood Booster, before, during, or after the service! It's an extra added touch that will really wow your clients.

Create the perfect environment by adding Soi Candle Thai Lemongrass

Jar Candle Thai Lemongrass - An exotic blend of Thai Lemongrass and Bamboo. This candle will burn for about 140 Hours. Each candle is hand poured, using only the finest ingredients and fragrance oils available.

Inspired by the passion for fragrance, love of exotic travel and strive for clean living. Aqua de SOi’s beautiful packaging and exotic fragrances will create a luxurious environment for everyday living wherever you choose.

All products can be retailed too!

Limoncello makes many think about summer or the beach...relaxing at it's best! Why not transfer that into something new for your massage clients?

Lemon Cello Massage Oil may be your new summer menu option!

Lemon Cello Massage Oil is excellent for tired, achy muscles and for calming down frazzled nerves. It's a very light oil that smells so good you'll have to make sure no one tries to drink it!

Citrus Summer Pedicures!

I can't help but talk about the tropical smells and flavors of the summer.  This week I smelled the Lemongrass Pedicure Soak Salt and it was amazing.  This pedicure soak salt is enriched with Dead Sea salt to help detoxify and reminerlize.  The soak also contains Triclosan, which helps control and inhibits bacteria growth.  It helps prevent the spread of germs and odors.  Lemongrass contains beta carotene, an antioxidant which has been found to be useful in healthy cell and tissue growth in the body.  According to the National Library of Medicine, it is also reported to have analgesic properties, which help reduce pain from inflammation of muscles, joints and tendons. So besides the aromatic offering of a tropical bliss, it also offers germ fighting and pain-reducing benefits for all of your clients.  It's summertime, so include more tropical and citrus scents in your services.  Check out Pure Spa Direct for some of our other items available for your summertime services!

The June Jacobs Spa Collection - Providing the Best for Your Clients

Hey Ladies and Gents'! I have some fantastic news!! Pure Spa Direct is now the exclusive wholesale supplier of the June Jacobs Spa Collection. Up until very recently, this elite skin care line was only available for purchase in the finest 5 and 6 star resorts and hotels around the world. However, the line is now available for purchase for Pure Spa Direct customers as well!!

From personal experience, I have found that spa treatments are one the most homogeneous services in the salon, spa, and wellness center industry. Everywhere, the treatments seem to be using the same products and same technique. In order to stand out from the rest and supply your clients with truly the finest services and retail, I highly recommend implementing the June Jacobs Spa Collection into your facial and body treatments.

I understand from talking to so many Pure Spa clients that making the leap to a new brand product can be scary. Fortunately, my coworkers and I have chronicled our favorite June Jacobs products so as to give you some more insight into this fantastic line.

1. Lemon Sugar Body Polish
The moment that you open this beautifully packaged scrub, your senses instantly become invigorated with the sweet and tart smell of lemon. It is aromatherapy at its finest. The scrub itself is rich with skin moisturizers and nourishing oils so that when the sugar on your skin has melted away, you are left with glossy, supple skin. I highly recommend this for exfoliating services in your spa.

2. Pore Purifying Mud Masque
I'm just going to say it. I have problematic skin. I have pasty, dull, highly sensitive skin with stress breakouts. When getting facials, the moment the mag lamp is turned on, I hear an 'Oh..,' a sigh, and a attempted diplomatic description of what to do about my pores. Well, I would like to personally thank Ms. Jacobs because she has changed my life. This Pore Purifying Mask has been a life saver for me. I applied a thin layer with a synthetic bristle face brush and I just let it sit for 15 minutes. In all honesty, it burned. It wasn't a burn that made it unbearable but it sure did let me know that it was cleaning deep into my pores. At the end of the 15 minutes, I was concerned with what my skin would look like. Anytime I have applied masks, my face would be as red as a lobster for hours. Upon rinsing my face, my skin looked bright and clear with not a single hint of redness or irritation. Consistently using this mask, even for a short period of time, has evened out my skin tone and cleared up my acne issues. I highly recommend this masque for acne treatments as well as back and chest facials. I also recommend retailing this so that your clients can take it home to add to their skin cleansing routine.

3. Vanda Orchid Dry Oil Body Spray
In addition to my clogged facial pores, I also have extremely dry skin. The Vanda Orchid Dry Oil Body Spray is the perfect prescription to treat this condition. This product, along with ALL June Jacobs products, is free of preservatives, parabens, petrochemicals, synthetic dyes, sulfates, and synthetic fragrances. The is a delicate hint of a floral scent to this body spray. I apply it everyday onto my wet skin upon getting out of the shower. After spraying it on, I either rub it in or let it dry. Either way, I am left with soft, supple skin that glows. I absolutely love this product! I recommend using this at the end of wet body treatments.

Spas across the country should update their services to include the elite June Jacobs Spa Collection because the entire line is mutually beneficial for the client and the business. The client is able to experience the zenith in skin care, which will then lead them to not only come back, but bring friends for the truly unique and special experience. In turn, as a business owner, this supplied you with consistent business and free advertising. So call us up today to have your spa services modified to include June Jacobs. You and your clients will be glad that you did!
