I love reading all of the fun 'national month/day of' for each month, some of them are pretty out there! For us and your clients, it's all about calming oatmeal!

Oats/oatmeal is awesome for calming dry, irritated skin. From oatmeal scrubs to baths, there's something for everyone!

January Is National Oatmeal Month!

January is National Oatmeal Month, not one that tends to be marketed heavily, however, in this industry you can make the most of it with your menu options. I speak with spas/salons across the world who are always looking to change up at least 1 menu option monthly to keep clients interested.

Oatmeal is excellent for soothing irritated skin as well as hydrating it - protecting it from further irritation. This makes it an excellent choice for sensitive skin as well as anyone who needs some extra hydration!

Are you currently offering any treatments that focus or include oatmeal? Check out some of these hot sellers at some of the finest resorts:

Oatmeal PowderOat Straw Cut - Certified Organic, and Organic Oats - these are perfect for making your own scrubs and masks!

Loofah Exfoliating Soap - Oatmeal & Honey - excellent retail item!

You can also have some fun making it an Oatmeal event with cookies or treats!

Chocolate Oatmeal Body Wrap---Good Enought To Eat!

Clients tend to expect treatment menus to feature chocolate services around holidays like Valentine's Day and Christmas; why not surprise them with something special as we head into the cooler months?

A chocolate and oatmeal body wrap is just the thing to surprise your clients with. Chocolate is excellent for increasing circulation, releasing toxins and reducing the appearance of cellulite. Oatmeal is excellent for increasing hydration and soothing skin irritations. Put them together and it's heavenly!

Start off by making your own exfoliating scrub with cocoa powder and flax seed. or try the Giovanni Hot Chocolate Sugar Scrub. Follow up with a body wrap made from cocoa powder and oatmeal.

If you're not one to make your own masks and scrubs, you could always use the Chocolate Comfort Sugar Scrub Body Treatment Kit by Body Concepts and mix in oatmeal powder. Another option is to add a few drops of the Ritual Alami Kakao Cocoa Essential Oil to the Desert Mineral Detox Scrub.

After the body wrap, you can always offer an add on chocolate bliss massage with chocolate massage oil!

Almost everyone loves chocolate, why wait until Valentine's Day to indulge your clients?

Suggestions and Ideas for Winter Body Wraps!

Now that we have officially entered the skin-ravaging days of winter, it is the perfect time to offer body wraps designed to moisturize and hydrate your clients' dry and cracking skin.


The question many of our clients ask, however, is 'Where do I start?'  Whether you want to use a pre-made mask, or create your own, there are tons of different products you can use to treat your clients.  Here are a few Ingredient Suggestions:
  1. Wheatgerm Carrier Oil - This thick, sticky liquid is packed with vitamin E and helps relieve dryness, itching, cracks and soreness.  You will need approximately 1/4 cup of oil, but be sure to dilute it first!
  2. Milk Powders - Whether it is Goats MilkFull Cream Milk or Buttermilk, all of these powders contain alpha-hydroxy acids that soften the skin and vitamins A, C, B1, B6, B12, & E to help nourish the skin and neutralize free radicals. 
  3. Soy Powder - This super ingredient contains amino acids and proteins that helps to boost the skin's moisture and collagen levels.
  4. Coconut Butter - This product melts at body temperature and has been shown to lubricate the skin while lowering  the evaporative loss of water.
  5. Oatmeal Powder - Oatmeal is a standard go-to for dry and itchy skin, but why?  The high concentration of salicylic acid makes this extremely effective as a remedy to help reduce itch and irritation asscociated with sensitve skin, rashes, eczema and psoriasis.  

Prefer to have your masks pre-made?  Amber Products has an excellent line of body masques that contain the hydrating and skin-reviving properties necessary for Winter Body Wraps:

Fall-Themed Foot Facials!


It is no secret that the staff here at Pure Spa Direct is not only excited for the Fall season, but also the opportunity to help you maximize profits and client satisfaction with products befitting the upcoming Autumnal changes.

A personal favorite product of mine that is perfect for this time of the year is the Too Cool Apple and Oatmeal Detoxifying Foot Facial by SOHO.  Whether you offer pedicures, massages, foot reflexology or other types of services, this product is the perfect add-on or basis for any treatment.

Gentle and refreshing, this mask draws out excess sebum, oil and toxins from the skin.  In addition, it also balances the pH of the skin while replenishing vital nutrients and minerals.  Simply combine the powder and liquid to create the mixture, apply to the feet and allow the product to harden.  Removal is a breeze since the mask forms a rubber-like consistency and can just be peeled off.

Most importantly, it will provide excellent, delicious-smelling service that stays in keeping with the current Autumnal theme!  Click HERE to see the SOHO Too Cool Apple and Oatmeal Detoxifying Foot Facial.  Lastly, check out some additional apple-themed products ripe for the picking HERE.
