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 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.

Madonna And Microcurrent

If you google Madonna and fork, you'll see a flood of articles and pictures. In a recent social media post, Madonna shared a video mid facial showing her esthetician using what she referred to as forks. The hastags quickly emerged and maybe you've even had some inquiries about it. While forks make an interesting article, microcurrent is now what may be on clients brain, but they don't know it.

Have you been thinking of bringing something new in, maybe something affordable, easy to use and sell in packages? Maybe you're looking to optimize your work area and carefully choose profitable and effective services to bring in this year? While it would be awesome if forks were the answer, bringing in something to boost business this year like microcurrent is a sound investment in the business. Easy to use, referred to commonly as the lunch time face lift and you can grab a table top or portable unit!

If you're looking to optimize space, take a look at the Bio-Therapeutic BT-Nano Microcurrent System or the Portable Galvanic/Microcurrent by Meishida.

Looking to blow your clients away and offer them an upgraded "fork facial", check out the 4 Function Facial Rejuvenation System by Meishida.

Clients are always looking for what celebrities are up to, now is a great time to get in on the "fork facial" trend wave!

Flu Facials?

It's no secret the flu has been rampant this year, along with some strong flu like illnesses going around. I've seen a few spas start to incorporate "Flu Facials" the last few weeks to help ease any lingering suffering.

If you have never had the flu, I commend your immune system! If you have had the flu, you know the muscle ache and facial pain from congestion. Once your client is on the road to recovery and back out in the world, a relaxing and clearing facial may sound heavenly!

Using products that are calming, cooling or refreshing starting with your cleanser, paying extra attention to facial pressure points. June Jacobs has a range of health driven products that would be perfect!

Warm facial towels or just a warm towel over the eyes can make a world of difference! A gentle face or scalp massage with a clearing essential oil like eucalyptus, peppermint or lemongrass makes an excellent add on service!

Making sure your towels, linens and blankets are soft and cozy along with optional herbal packs and teas can be just the thing your post flu clients are desperately needing!

Steamer Issues? Stop by PureSpaDirect.com!

Aside from the flu, one of the most common topics buzzing right now are steamers. From an old steamer finally gave out, to one from Amazon that wasn't designed for heavy professional use couldn't handle the holiday rush.

If you've been noticing some issues or even wear and tear affecting the appearance of the steamer (clients don't want to see dirty, broken down equipment; would you?) or don't yet have a back up, you can't afford to wait any longer.

Whether you need one with ozone or aromatherapy or even a mini table top (these make great retail items as well!) for emergencies or space concerns, there are fantastic options in every price range. If you like keeping your cash flow positive, head over to the financing application!

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!
