Head Off Dry Winter Skin Through Retail

In a perfect world, every client would be able to come see you on a regular schedule to address any and all skin concerns. Time and money get in the way of that so having seasonal "go to" retail products can be successful.  Depending on where you live, dry winter skin can be a challenge for many of your clients.

Aside from being awarded the best "5 Minute Complexion Makeover", this 100% natural mask is great for any skin type.

I Can See Clearly Now...That My Eyes Aren't Puffy!

These little gems can also be warmed up in some warm water if your client prefers! These make great gifts, add-ons, retail items and giveaway/promo items!

Rejuvenate Dry and Chapped Winter Hands!



It's almost the end of February, and there's a least a solid month of winter left, whether you'd like to admit to it or not! 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. Their hands are probably exposed the most, which can lead to super dehydrated and cracked winter hands - not a good look!

Hand Masks are be a great add-on treatment to any spa service! 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! We have a great variety to choose from! Take a look at my favorites below:

You're Getting Very Sleepy - Help Your Clients Get Restful Sleep!

Sleep, it's no secret a good night's sleep is imperative to your health and skin health - they don't call it beauty sleep for no reason! Despite knowing this, many people rarely get a decent night sleep, let alone a good one.

Do you talk to your clients about the importance of restful sleep in relation to their skin care concerns? Do you offer any treatments that help promote sleep? Finally, do you offer retail items to help them get the best possible sleep?


Here are some of our sleep/relaxation related products for use in services and retail!

 Ultimate ZZZZs Silk Sleep Mask 
This is a must if you have clients who have trouble unplugging or need the noise of a television to fall asleep to. Having a dark space helps your body release all those lovely sleep hormones/chemicals. Eye masks can be just the thing to help someone get their best night sleep!

Beauty Sleep 
This is actually a supplement to help promote sleep! Available in various retail displays to perfectly fit your counter!

Essential Oil Blend - Peaceful Sleep / 1 oz. 
Perfect to go in a diffuser at bedtime!

Music Cd's

Lavender Essential Oil 
Extremely popular for relaxation! Pick out the scents you think would work best or a blend!

Aromafloria Stress Less Ocean Mineral Bath Salts
These little guys are amazing! They also have a muscle soak one that is heavenly! 

You can really wow them and have your own sleep room! A dimly lit (salt lamps are amazing for this!) or dark room with super comfortable loungers, soft music and offer the sleep masks!

For a very small investment, you can increase retail sales and help your clients get some well-deserved rest!

Sulfur: Smells Gross, Looks Amazing!

I know what you're thinking! Sulfur is definitely one of those products that smells awful, but you really can't deny it's benefits! If you were unaware of this smelly element's amazing effects in the skin, look no further. I'm sure you regularly deal with clients who suffer from acne. They probably come into your spa desperate, looking for an alternative to products containing benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid if those are too harsh, or have failed them. Enter sulfur! It has been gaining popularity as an anti-acne treatment in spas and beauty products lately, and I must say I'm pretty excited! We just got in these amazing new masks containing sulfur - our Sulfur Anti-Inflamatory Soft Masks! This effective yet gentle treatment leaves skin with a smooth, silky, ultra-fine texture without a greasy after-feel. It helps to maintain the clarity and ideal condition of normal skin and prevents the build-up of oil and other impurities in the pores that can cause the pores to dilate excessively - a dream mask for your clients suffering from acne!

It's Not Just Slime! The Beauty Benefits of Algae

Algae is commonly seen as that annoying, gross slime that we try to remove from our pools each year. However, did you know that tons of beauty products are actually loaded with it ? But waiiit!.. before you go running to your spa pantry to impulsively throw away all of your products, let's take a look at the benefits this seemingly gross sludge actually has to offer! According to an article I read on it, there are plenty. Since beach season is on the horizon, you might want to consider adding an algae face mask treatment to your spa! It's a great seasonal treatment your clients will love.

What are the beautifying benefits of algae? Check them out below!



Anti-aging
Due to its high protein and fatty acid content, algae can help boost collagen production which keeps the skin elastic and firm - all characteristics of youth, which can help in anti-aging. We have a great Seaweed Algae Peel Off Mask by Pour Elle Labs which can be an effective product to use during an algae facial treatment at your spa.



Hydrating

Because algae is a plant and water-based by nature, its components can help to moisturize and even purify the skin. This can also reduce the appearance of fine lines an wrinkles because of its strong hydrating properties.



Anti-bacterial

Research has found that blue-green algae has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, which makes it effective in treating your clients who are prone to acne, eczema, and even psoriasis! To get started on your algae facial treatments, you might want to consider purchasing our Warm Clay and Algae Masque Kit by Amber!






Convinced that this sea plant is more than just annoying green pool stuff?! Click here to see all of our algae products to get your spa prepared for a beautifying deep sea treatment just in time for summer :)

Earth Day 2015

In honor of Earth Day being this week, what better way to celebrate than stocking up on some organic, eco-friendly products for your boutique? I love all things organic and natural, especially if it's earth friendly! Earth Day started back in the 1970s to bring awareness to environmental issues and how to address them, specifically with the passing of the Clean Air and Water Act which was groundbreaking at the time. It has since come a long way! With the new millennium, an emphasis on global warming and clean energy awareness is the latest issue.


We have a variety of organic and eco-friendly products here at Pure Spa Direct. See below for some of my favorites!


Eco-Fin is a great brand we love, and they make a variety of all natural, earth friendly products. My favorite is "The Balm" Moisturizing Balm which is great for retailing! Using 100% all natural ingredients, your clients will love this pocket-size moisturizer which is great for dry hair ends, lips, cuticles, knees, elbows and feet.






Are your clients looking to extend their salon tan at home using all natural, organic and paraben-free ingredients? The Norvell 360 Sunless Eco-Mist organic self-tanning spray is perfect for that! It is safe and easy to apply at home. Bonus points for being eco-friendly and 100% vegan for your animal loving clients! :)





If you are currently using wax candles at your spa, you might want to re-consider investing in some eco-friendly LED candles. They are designed to flicker just like a real candle without the flame, smoke, and wax mess! These candles are also safer for your lungs and indoor air quality - crucial elements that your Earth conscientious clients will definitely appreciate! My favorite is the Crackle Candle Glass Votive. We have tons to choose from, though. Click here to see!


I am personally a huge fan of the Alaska Glacial Mud Company, as their products are natural, organic, and just straight up fabulous! Aside from the fact that they use wild & certified organic ingredients only, there are no animal by-products or testing, and the glacial mud is sustainably hand-carved. What's so amazing is that 10% of the profits are donated to wilderness preservation, habitat restoration, environmental defense, and education in the Copper River Watershed. Their Purifying Mineral Mud Masque in Relaxing Vanilla & Lavender happens to be my favorite. Your clients will surely be hooked on this line.

Incorporate Sage into Your Services - Your Clients Will Love You for It!

I adore the smell of sage...I have sage oil on my desk as I'm writing this. I have always found it a very calming scent and apparently I'm not alone!

I recently read an article about spas and salons incorporating sage in various ways to add some new life into their menu. One spa has a soothing sage menu where clients can choose from their favorite treatments.

You can offer a sage massage by adding a few drops of sage oil to your massage oil! Add in a sage scrub to really make the treatment stand out!
You can offer a calming sage foot treatment using a sage soak and foot masque! Pair it with some sage green pedicure slippers, toe separators and sage polish! (be sure to check all the polishes since the names may be deceiving!)

If you want to go all out, have a room dedicated to your sage treatment with sheets and blankets!

Young Faces Are Trending!

I read an article last week touting that a youthful face is more important than a youthful body. The headline drew my attention, it was worth the read!

A national study was conducted by a research company in the industry, on women ages 21-65. A startling 60% of the women said that having a younger looking face was more important to them than a younger looking body. 60%!!!

What does that mean for you? Are you asking this question to your clients? If not, based off this article, I would start! Depending on the answers you uncover, you may find yourself tweaking your menu options!

I don't know many spas or salons that aren't currently offering anti-aging treatments. It may however be time to look at exactly what you are offering compared to what's most important to your client base.

Are you offering more ant-aging body treatments and your client's are looking for facials? Or vice versa?

Are your client's growing bored of the anti-aging treatments you are offering?

One of the hottest anti-aging facial treatment packages combines a deep cleaning with a skin scrubber, applying the aqua lift ampoule for the extreme lifting effect followed by a microcurrent session---the ultimate in non-surgical face lifts!

Don't forget the Advanced Anti-Aging Mask which is loaded with proven anti-aging components like hyaluronic acid, Coenzyme Q10 and of course collagen.

For those clients who are looking for anti aging body treatments, take a look at the Grape Herbal body mask and the Hydro Peptide Body Serum.  Grapes have excellent anti aging effects and the serum is full of hyaluronic acid, peptides and lipoic acid, all excellent at decreasing age lines.

Asking your clients what is important to them will give you valuable information on how to better assist them and their needs!

Protect The Skin With Bilberry!

Fall is officially upon us, which means....winter is on its way!

It's time to start thinking about exfoliating and increasing the skin's natural defenses in preparation for the harsh winter weather.

On often overlooked ingredient that is amazing for both exfoliation and fighting the appearance of wrinkles, is bilberry. Bilberry leaves have anti-inflammatory properties, natural alpha hydroxy acid and helps stimulate the skin's natural defenses.

The awesome thing about these leaves (as if fighting the appearance of wrinkles isn't awesome enough!) is how versatile they are. You can mix them with carrier oils, scrubs, masks, wraps, and you can use them in hydrotherapy treatments!

Get a head start on stocking up for your winter menu!
