Year Round Sun Defense

Just because the summer has now passed, does not mean clients can forgo protecting their skin from the sun. The effects of the sun on the skin does not differentiate between seasons, as handy as that may be for some. It is not uncommon to see sunburn even in the winter.

Don't let your clients chance any damage to their skin simply because the temperature or seasons are changing. Get them on a routine of sunscreen or daily lotion with SPF! Here are a few top favorites from spas and salons across the world, throughout the year:

BurnOut 18.9% Zinc Oxide Eco Sensitive Skin Sunscreen - a long time best seller!

Alchimie Forever Daily Defense Cream SPF 23 - this entire line is effective and affordable! Non-comedogenic, this hydrating formula provides protection against UVA and UVB, while moisturizing with antioxidant and anti-aging effects. Ideal for all skin types and suitable for sensitive or sensitized skin.

June Jacobs SPF products -paraben and preservative free, June Jacobs products with SPF deliver the quality and effectiveness expected from her line

Whether you finish your facials with an SPF product with the end result of retailing or simply retail, clients should be aware of the importance of year-round diligence against sun damage!

New Product Spotlight: SpaRitual Earl Grey Teatox Sugar Scrub

Looking for a light, fresh, all purpose scrub for clients this season? SpaRitual Earl Grey Teatox Sugar Scrub is the way to go!

I tried this out today and was amazed at how lovely the scent was, not overpowering or too light. Being a sugar scrub it was perfectly gentle making it great for use on hands, feet and body! It applied smoothly, no greasy or oily feeling at all! Worried about removing due to lack of sink access in the room? This removes easily with a spray bottle and hot towel, even just the hot towel may do the trick!

After just a few moments, the one hand I tested it on was visibly smoother and softer feeling than the hand I did not use this on.

Aside from how soft and smooth, take a look at the ingredients and their benefits!

Benefits:

  • Organic Black Tea Extract: antioxidant (polyphenols); slows aging, soothes, and reduces inflammation.
  • Organic Marigold Extract: antioxidant (flavonoids); soothes, reduces inflammation, irritation, and promotes healing.
  • Organic Bergamot Essential Oil: antioxidant (polyphenols); helps reduce anxiety and lift mood, relaxes muscles and reduces soreness.
  • Organic Orange Essential Oil: antioxidant (Vitamin C); reduces inflammation and slows aging.
  • Earl Grey Essential Oil Blend: Clary Sage essential oil (top note), Bergamot essential oil (mid-top note), Southern Cone Marigold essential oil (mid-base note) and Alpine Hay essential oil (base note)


This will quickly become a client favorite for retail!

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.
