Product Of The Week: Alchimie Forever Dry Skin Balm

If you have clients suffering from dry skin, or are wanting to get their skin in silky smooth shape in anticipation of the warmer weather, take a look at the Alchimie Forever Dry Skin Balm.

The Alchimie Forever line was created by a dermatologist in Switzerland to bring effective, cruelty-free and vegan-friendly products to the market. The dry skin balm is chock full of  super hydrating ingredients including shea butter, watercress and jojoba. One of my favorite things is that it can be used on all skin types, including sensitive or sensitized skin. It doesn't have a weird sticky residue either, it just leaves the skin super soft.

It's the perfect time of year to educate clients on maintaining their skin hydration. Have some on hand to finish services off and put a few near the checkout for easy retailing!

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.

Natural Ingredients for Targeted Pain

Farmaesthetics is infamous for having effective products, with all natural ingredients. They are beautifully packaged and available in both a retail and back bar size.

Massage therapists are going crazy for the Farmaesthetics Arnica Remedy Oil 

This highly specialized, non-aromatic herbalist formulation is prepared by hand with organically grown herbs. Unlike typical massage oils made with herbal extracts or aromatic essential oils, Farmaesthetics' Remedy Oils are infused with whole organic herbs. The herbs we choose undergo a traditional infusion process, allowing time to garner the healing properties inherent in each. The result is significant when used in hot bath soaks and external massage and absorbed through the skin.

Why is arnica so awesome?
Arnica is highly regarded in herbalism for its ability to diminish bruising and swelling in skin tissue. Arnica has a complex chemistry but simply put, the herb works to affect the blood vessels so that there is a rapid reduction of inflammation, the kind associated with the injured tissue. A capful used in external massage or in a warm bath soak is a simple, effective way to introduce Arnica into the system, while at the same time conditioning the skin & improving circulation. Dermatologists are now recognizing the many benefits of Arnica for patients following laser or plastic surgery.

For clients experiencing tired or sore muscles, try using Farmaesthetics Arnica Remedy Oil in your sports massages.  The result is significant when used in hot bath soaks and external massage and absorbed through the skin. You can also spike your favorite massage oil with just a capful.


Incorporate the 10 oz Remedy Oil into your services, and retail the 4 oz Remedy Oil for happy clients!

All Natural All Organic Eye Makeup Remover

Your clients will love a natural solution to removing makeup! Plus it works as a treatment for anti-aging and is extremely soothing. Try it in every treatment and retail it too!

Farmaesthetics Eyebright Makeup Remover and Treatment Oil / 1 oz.
Remove cosmetics, ease the appearance of fine lines, and soothe tired eyes—all with a combination of soothing eyebright, which is great for tired eyes, with chamomile in simple sweet almond oil, results in a well rounded, all natural, and multipurpose oil. Apply the oil to a cotton pad, place over the eye area, and rest to allow thorough, deep absorption of herbal constituents and relieve dry, flaky, red, or irritated eyes.

INSPIRATION:
Three treatments in one: Non-chemical eye make up remover, line smoothing, anti-inflammatory application to soften fine lines and wrinkles and a relaxing compress to sooth eyestrain. The herb Eyebright is known in herbalism to relieve eyestrain and redness due to fatigue from over-use, environmental irritants or allergies. As the nerves in the eyes are relaxed and strengthened, there is less strain, therefore less squinting and less rubbing. By combining Eyebright with the soothing properties of Chamomile in simple Sweet Almond Oil, one is applying an ancient remedy to an age-old complaint and removing eye makeup to boot! No missed opportunity here.

APPLICATIONS AND BENEFITS:
A Non-Chemical Eye Makeup Remover – Doesn't contain the harsh, synthetic, chemical solvents that are in most makeup removers and that dry and irritate, delicate eye tissue.
Tender Treatment Oil for delicate skin - Made with nature's most settling calming emollient: Chamomile is a soothing, powerful anti-inflammatory agent.
Herbal Whole Eye Treatment – Helps relax the ocular nerve. Our eyes are faced with stress and strain everyday, especially in our environmentally challenged world with computer driven business and communication, fluorescent lighting, poor indoor and outdoor air quality, air pollution from cleaning products, carpets, and chemically treated foods. Our eyes are exhausted by day's end and our eyesight is diminished with the continued strain of focusing and refocusing under often times poorly lit screens and work spaces. Grapeseed Oil stabilizes the preparation, but also yields an anti-bacterial action to the preparation.

AS USED IN PROFESSIONAL TREATMENTS:
All Facials
All Massage Treatments
All Solar Salt Bath Soaks

Eyebright Heated Eye Treatment Pads. Place warm Eyebright Treatment Oil on cotton pad and place over eye area and rest. This allows for thorough, deep absorption of the herbal constituents. If the eye area is dry, flaky, red and irritated from allergies or skin related disorders, this heated eye treatment pad will activate the beneficial emollients to the tissues.

Key Ingredients:
Eyebright Extract: Known in herbalism for relieving eyestrain, puffiness, and redness due to fatigue, environmental irritants, allergies, or over-use. As the nerves in the eyes are relaxed and strengthened, there is less strain and less tendency to squint or rub the eyes, both of which contribute to fine lines and inflammation.
Sweet Almond Oil: A light, odorless, high-grade fruit kernel oil - wonderfully nourishing to the skin.
Orange Wax: Orange wax is the semi-solid wax taken from orange rinds. The wax sourced by Farmaesthetics is derived without solvent extractions or chemical reactions, making it an all-natural ingredient. Orange wax as found in orange peels protects the fruit against the environment, allowing it to breath, while maintaining its essential water balance. When applied to the skin, it works in much the same way, making it a wonderfully emollient, gently protective ingredient, perfect for use around tender eye tissue.
Vitamin E: Used to stabilize all of Farmaesthetics natural non-aqueous formulations. Benefits in restoring skin's elasticity. Assists in healing scars and preventing stretch marks in skin that is being stretched from pregnancy or weight gain.
Grapeseed Oil: Known as a natural antioxidant – helps benefit tender tissue around the eyes.
Chamomile Essential Oil: Farmaesthetics uses oils derived from German Chamomile. This is a soothing, calming herb with anti-inflammatory properties. High in azulene, it is known to be an anti-allergenic agent and is therefore excellent for reducing puffiness around delicate eye tissue.

Salt vs Sugar Scrubs

Aside from the obvious difference, do your clients know which would be better for their skin? Clients may not always know the same information we think they do, and could be using the wrong product for their skin type or dermatological concerns.

While both exfoliate the skin, sugar tends to be less abrasive, making it preferable for clients with sensitive skin and gentler for use on the face or newly waxed skin. Sugar scrubs also tend to be more hydrating for the skin.

Salt scrubs are more abrasive, which makes them excellent for exfoliating before body treatments, are great for reducing inflammation and since salt is known for antibacterial properties, making it good for acne.

From back bar to retail sizing, we've got effective, profitable and great smelling options for both salt and sugar so you can customize for your clients!

Product Of The Week: Santa Barbara Massage Cream

Happy Friday! Hope everyone has been having a busy week!

This week's featured product is one of my favorites, Santa Barbara Massage Cream

Massage Therapist tend to be picky about what medium they use for massage whether it be oil, lotion, cream or gel. Personally, I've never been a fan of oil and only used lotion in school and in my own practice. When I received a gift of each scent of their line, I was immediately hooked. They smell WONDERFUL!

Made from olive oil, beeswax and coconut oil, it melts with body heat. With just the right amount of glide, this is phenomenal for both deep tissue without being too greasy, as well as silky enough for Swedish massage. It's an all-natural alternative for clients and therapists who prefer a more natural approach.

Add in the benefits of specific essential oils, you can customize for your clients. Available in Ylang Ylang & Orange, Clary Sage & Lavender, Eucalyptus, Lavender - and there is an unscented for sensitive clients or those who simply don't like scented products.

Try out an 8oz size to try for yourself, you'll be surprised how a little goes quite a long way! The smaller sizes also make great retail items!

Have an amazing weekend!

Product Of The Week: Aromafloria Sinus Help Inhalation Beads

Happy Friday!

Now that cold and flu season has been hitting areas hard, do you have any items on hand to ease congestion?

Aromafloria Sinus Help Inhalation Beads are an excellent, effective and affordable item everyone should have at their retail counter this season. We had a bottle here in the office and I purchased one as a gift for my mother last year - amazing!  A year later, and my mother still talks about how these helped clear her head.

These powerful little beads are full of eucalyptus, peppermint and lemongrass to easy congestion and boost the stuffiest of moods. They come with a cute little pouch to fill with the beads making inhalation easy and portable.  You don't have to fill the pouch up completely as a little can go a long way, depending on the level of congestion.

Did I mention these are only $5.50 each? Have a tester bottle nearby, offer it to clients to try or try it on them during a service if they are congested! Retailing at $10.00 makes it appealing to clients as well, especially once they've had a chance to smell (and feel!) how great this is.

These make great impulse item purchases, gifts and you can easily use them as an add on "boost"!
