The Original Mustard Bath Is Back!

Dr. Singha's Mustard Bath has returned! One of the most sought after bath additives and retail items, just in time for the winter and holiday season!

Dr. Singha's Mustard Bath is known for its stimulating, cleansing, and rejuvenating qualities. The warmth of mustard gently opens pores and assists in the elimination of impurities. This potent alkaline medium helps assist in the restoration of a healthy body pH. The aromatic essential oils of wintergreen, eucalyptus, rosemary, and thyme were carefully chosen for their therapeutic benefits to help reduce nerve pain, assist breathing, and provide general antiseptic properties!

Facial Oil - The Winter Skin Saver!

Depending on your location, dry winter skin can be a concern for your clients. Do you have clients who suffer from dry, itchy, red or irritated skin from cold, wind and other weather situations?

Retailing something as simple as a facial oil can be a lifesaver for your clients in between services. Adding them in as an option to a facial or massage service can be a great way to introduce the benefits of facial oil to your clients as well!

From using a carrier oil and adding essential oils for a customized facial massage or your own special signature blend to a variety of prepackaged oils, it can easily be incorporated into your line up!

Serum-ology: Make any Spa Service a Corrective Service!

I was recently talking with a client who is obsessed with Amber's Facial Serum. She let me know they mix well together and are super refreshing for the skin. I had to see what the fuss was all about, and guess what? I love them!

Amber has developed the most scientifically advanced collection of corrective skincare serums in the industry - patented formulations packed with powerful Peptides, Stem Cells, Acids, Marine Actives, Nutrients, Vitamins, and Minerals that deliver targeted results.

Serum-ology allows you to turn any spa service into a corrective treatment! Amber offers the largest collection of corrective serums in the industry with more than 30 high-powered formulations to treat clients professionally from head to toe.

Take a look at my personal favorite so far-

Facial Serum - 24 Karat Shine

Infused with 24 Karat Gold flakes. 24 Karat Shine helps to brighten, smooth, soften and diminish the appearance of fine lines by improving skin's elasticity.

Gold Flakes are suspended in nutrient-rich liquid formula so that they can easily penetrate the surface of the skin for radiant results and a luminous glow.

Evening Primrose Oil, a powerful anti-oxidant, helps detoxify cells while firming the skin.

24 Karat Shine is an excellent primer for makeup.

Used For: All Skin Types (Except Problematic)

An excellent retail option for clients to extend professional treatment!
MSRP: $53.00

Application: 1-2 pumps per treatment. Approximately 25 treatments.

Warm Up For Winter

Depending on your location, you may already be feeling the start of cooler weather. If you have clients who tend to run colder, having microwavable heating packs available can be just the thing to take their service experience from good to great. As someone who is always cold, any time I'm offered a warm blanket or heat pack, I remember who offered.

It's also the perfect time of year to start including items like herbal neck wraps, back wraps and even booties to your retail section. These make great holiday gifts every year! Here are some favorites that we see fly off the shelves each year:

Kozi Neck Wrap
Herbal Booties
Sposh Herbal Packs


Don't forget to have table warmers and blankets, robes and slippers for clients who may run extra cold!

Fly Away Crows Feet!

Looking for an easy add on to your facial services? Do your clients have or mention crows feet as a concern? Have you thought about incorporating microneedling?

The Micro Needle Roller Therapy System is an amazing handheld skin roller which can naturally increase the skin’s level of collagen and elastin. The steel micro-points release toxins from the skin but also allow vastly improved penetration of active ingredients (such as vitamins A & C) in treatment products. The Micro Needle creates thousands of microscopic needle marks inducing your own body's collagen to grow. These microscopic needle marks close after several minutes, locking in skin-building nutrients, supporting collagen and elastin repair. It assists in the fading the appearance of wrinkles and age spots, improving the skin's beauty, tone, and youthful appearance.

Easy to use, noticeable results after one treatment and budget-friendly - talk about a powerhouse add on! The system comes in two sizes, one to be used by professionals as it penetrates deeper and one to retail for clients for home use:

0.5mm - Professional Use:
• Skin Whitening
• Improve skin pigmentation
• Improve wrinkle (eye area)
• Improve Alopecia
• Collagen Induction
• Drug delivery

0.25mm - Personal Use:
• Skin Restoration
• Improve Alopecia
• Homecare Therapy
• Active ingredient delivery

Clients report results after just one treatment!!

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: 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!
