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!

Your Clients Are On The Go - Sell Them Things to Help!

People are always on the go these days. From family vacation to business trips, airports are rarely empty.

When a client mentions they are getting ready to leave, are currently travelling or just got back from travelling - you have a perfect transition to retail.

If they're getting ready to leave, how are they taking care of their skin while away?
If they're currently travelling, what are they using now as their go to travel plan?
If they just got back, what did they use and were they happy with the results?

Three easy approaches to offer some travel kits, along with some fun options. You can educate them on the importance of keeping up with their routines while away and help them find the best products for their skin concerns. They will be appreciative of your care, which will lead into increased retail sales.

You can opt to go with kits packaged by the manufacturers, make your own kits ahead of time to match your business, or have something like a "choose your own kit". For that kit, pick however many items you select for the from for the client to fill a travel cosmetic bag. You can even tier it with a small, medium and large bag, whatever works best for you!

Here are some of favorites of clients of ours from across the world:




Some client favorites for individual items to create your own:

You can throw whatever type of product or product option, sizes or skin condition you like!

Grab some travel cases to put everything in and start talking to clients!

Menu Spotlight: Back Acne Be Gone!!!

Since this is the season of dare to bare, people want their skin as flawless as possible without having to spend a fortune. If you have clients with back acne, this is a great, affordable (yet cost AND time effective for your business!) treatment to test out in your Summer menu.

Back Masque - think of a clever name to fit your menu theme/style!

In a medium rubber mixing bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of marine fango with 4-6 drops of eucalyptus oil. Prep your bed for a body treatment, placing a protective covering on. Place a heating pad set on low on the table, so that it will line up under the client's back area. Spread a layer of the masque on to a disposable pad, and place on the heating pad. You can also apply the masque to the client's back with a body brush, and have them lie down on the disposable pad and heating pad.

If you've up sold the client into services to be done at the same time, begin those will the client is laying on the masque.

Once the other services have been completed, remove the back masque with warm, damp towels.

Take a look at some information and ideas for add on treatments to up sell, here.

You're Getting Very Sleepy - Help Your Clients Get Restful Sleep!

Sleep, it's no secret a good night's sleep is imperative to your health and skin health - they don't call it beauty sleep for no reason! Despite knowing this, many people rarely get a decent night sleep, let alone a good one.

Do you talk to your clients about the importance of restful sleep in relation to their skin care concerns? Do you offer any treatments that help promote sleep? Finally, do you offer retail items to help them get the best possible sleep?


Here are some of our sleep/relaxation related products for use in services and retail!

 Ultimate ZZZZs Silk Sleep Mask 
This is a must if you have clients who have trouble unplugging or need the noise of a television to fall asleep to. Having a dark space helps your body release all those lovely sleep hormones/chemicals. Eye masks can be just the thing to help someone get their best night sleep!

Beauty Sleep 
This is actually a supplement to help promote sleep! Available in various retail displays to perfectly fit your counter!

Essential Oil Blend - Peaceful Sleep / 1 oz. 
Perfect to go in a diffuser at bedtime!

Music Cd's

Lavender Essential Oil 
Extremely popular for relaxation! Pick out the scents you think would work best or a blend!

Aromafloria Stress Less Ocean Mineral Bath Salts
These little guys are amazing! They also have a muscle soak one that is heavenly! 

You can really wow them and have your own sleep room! A dimly lit (salt lamps are amazing for this!) or dark room with super comfortable loungers, soft music and offer the sleep masks!

For a very small investment, you can increase retail sales and help your clients get some well-deserved rest!

Just In Time for the Holidays - Santa Scrub!

A few clients this week have been thinking about bringing some new menu items to their holiday menu. Here is one to entice your clients senses and keep their skin super soft!

Holiday Cinnamon Scrub

For the scrub
In a rubber mixing bowl, combine the following:

1/4 cup of sucanat
3 tablespoons of grapeseed oil
1/4 teaspoon of clove powder
4 drops of cinnamon essential oil
6 drops of mandarin essential oil

Once these have been mixed well, place the bowl in a hot towel cabinet or mud warmer until ready to use.

In another rubber mixing bowl, combine 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil with 2 drops of cinnamon essential oil and 3 drops of mandarin essential oil. Place this in a hot towel cabinet or mud warmer until ready to start the treatment.

A great way to start the service is by offering a dry brush add on (or just build this into the treatment cost) and giving the client the brush to take for home use. You can also use exfoliating massage gloves (also a great item to retail or give to clients) instead if you prefer.

Start off with the scrub and apply as you normally perform body scrubs - be sure to check in with the client to ensure comfort at all times. Once finished, if you have a vichy shower, drench the client for about 10 minutes or so to remove all product. If you have a shower, have them rinse off.

Once all product has been removed, finish off with a light massage with the warm oil.
