March Is Caffeine Awareness Month....Brew Up Some New Treatments!

Now that Valentine's day has passed, are you looking to replace the chocolate service specials with something outside of your usual menu options? Are you just looking to infuse new life into your menu rotation?

Coffee is not only a warm cup of deliciousness, it has incredible skin care properties as well. 
Here are just a few of the benefits of coffee in the skincare and beauty industry:
    Cafe Mocha
  • Coffee can help reduce inflammation (think, puffy eyes!) and caffeine constricts blood vessels (think, slimming!)
  • Coffee can temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite (a study done by the University of São Paulo found a 17% reduction in the size of cellulite cells)
  • Ground coffee is an excellent and gentle exfoliant
  • Coffee is an antioxidant, it can help bring impurities out from the skin
  • The scent of coffee can invoke powerful positive memories and joyous feelings (read more about scent marketing here---there is a fresh brewed coffee scent available for the Scent Linq!)
Not sure where to start? Here are our most popular coffee products both for services and of course, retail!

*you can make your own face, mani/pedi and body scrubs*

*simple and effective, this mask will have your clients skin looking and feeling fresh and smooth within 
minutes*

This line is amazing with both professional and retail packaging available, with many options including Kopi Coffee


Again, creativity is key when marketing treatments...think about what you, your friends and your clients would want to see and experience. Why not offer coffee parties in March complete with service options, add -ons, coffee drinks and treats!

Food For Thought And Profit

Most businesses want to be set apart from the competition, to stand out in any number of ways. In the spa industry, having unique and differing menu options is an easy and profitable way to stand out. There are thousands of products to mix and match with to give your service menu that extra wow factor. 

One great product you may not have thought twice on bringing in is chick pea powder. Yes, chick pea powder!

Take a look here: SPA PANTRY Chick Pea Powder

The powder from my favorite nutrient and protein rich bean is great for use in body treatments!
Chick peas are packed with vitamins and nutrients that our skin loves including magnesium, beta carotene and vitamin A. 

Magnesium has been shown to help with keeping the skin young and fresh!
Beta-carotene is a great antioxidant as well as excellent for aiding in having glowing skin!
Vitamin A has been known for years to be a great ingredient in skin care and anti-aging treatments.

So, how do you incorporate chick pea powder into your menu? It's so easy you'll wonder why you haven't tried it yet.
Chick pea powder can be blended into butters, masks, muds,and wraps. Mixing ratio ½
teaspoon of chick pea powder to 1 tablespoon of base. Since the powder doesn't dissolve well in carrier oils it's recommended to use a base cream.

To go with the chick pea powder here are some great base creams:

Soothing Toch Cream

A cost effective powder that will add some new flair to your menu and keep your clients interested, everyone wins!
