Night Time Skin Care

Sleep is essential for proper body and mind function and plays a vital role in cell repair and regeneration. Many tend to focus on what goes on your skin during the day to help protect from UV exposure, free radicals and maintaining moisture. How focused and educated are your clients on their night time skin care routine? The most common routine seems to be makeup removal, quick wash and maybe a spot treatment for acne or under eye cream before hopping into bed. 

Why not take it to the next level for clients with a product that can help retain moisture, smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and leave your skin looking youthful and rested....all while they sleep!

Bioelements Sleepwear is a powerful overnight cream that can be used on dry to combination skin and is packed with the youth restoring goodness of calcium, retinol, peptides and cranberry seed oil. Clients have seen noticeable results in a short period time and all they have to do is remember to put it on before bed. Easily added into any night time routine, there is even a formula just for the hands

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!

Be Memorable!

Do your clients refer to you for one specific reason aside from, "the place I get my facials"?

Do they refer to you as "XYZ, they have this amazing Caviar Facial that is unlike any other!?

Big difference there. Do you have a signature? If you do, what sets it apart from anything they can get down the block, or next town over?

Be the place that smells like warm vanilla when you walk in, that offers a signature Cinnamon & Clove scrub in the winter, that is to die for!

Be the massage therapist who not only gives a phenomenal massage, but offers a delicious smelling butter rum hand and foot treatment during the winter!

You can have a year round signature, seasonal or whatever works best for your style - just don't forget to see what's new, and how your competition is evolving.

Product Of The Week: Indira Portable Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber

Happy Friday! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!

This weeks featured product is the Indira Portable Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber by Silver Spa. A vital component to any facial, is a deep skin cleanse. Removing all of the dirt and debris from deep within the pores does not have to be a brutal process for clients, or for the technician.

The Indira utilizes 28,000 pulses of ultrasound per second to deep cleanse, exfoliate, massage, lift, and infuse water soluble products such as Vitamin C deep into the skin. This makes it an excellent alternative to microdermabrasion and gentle enough to use on clients with sensitive skin. Since you have the choice of what to use as a gliding agent, you can select ampoules to customize the facial to each client.

Here are some key reasons why skin scrubbers are so popular:

Benefits of Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber:
Improves appearance of Acne
Removes Blackheads
Diminishes Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Improves Collagen and Elastin production for Firming and Tightening
Allows for Deeper Penetration of Skin Care Products

Skin scrubbers are safe for a wide variety of skin types, including skin with:

Sensitive Skin
Rosacea
Acne
Aging Skin

If you're not already using a skin scrubber, I highly recommend checking them out!

Are You Retailing Facial Masks?

It's no secret that retailing, makes up a big chunk of your profits. Anyone not retailing is missing out on an incredible and relatively easy revenue stream for their business. From franchises and large salons, to solo practitioners and those renting space - there's an equal opportunity to boost your bottom line.

While there are many complimentary skin products from cleansers to sunscreens, facial masks are on a steady rise in high end spas as a top selling retail item. Since clients may not be coming in as often as you'd like for their facial, you have an awesome opportunity to ensure they're still taking great care of their skin between services. You can select the perfect mask for their skin type/condition for them and any supplemental items they may need (think cleansing brushes, serums, scrubs) and educate them on their skin care routine. For those extra busy practitioners, you can use a Spascriptive Pad to send them to the retail area!

Here are some of the best selling and staff favorites:



Give us a call at 800-434-0018 or live chat (www.purespadirect.com) us for help picking out the perfect masks to retail to your clients!

Face Fruit - Natural Exfoliation

Exfoliation is not something new, as you and your clients are well aware of.  There are different types of products that can be used to exfoliate the skin. Are you utilizing the power of fruit enzymes for exfoliation?

Fruit enzymes are particularly good for clients with oily and mature skin types.  Fruit enzymes help gently remove (digest) dry, dull, superficial layers of the skin to leave a smoother, more youthful look.

The top two that seems to always be flying out of the warehouse are papaya and pumpkin - perfect for going into the fall season!

The Papaya Purifying Enzyme Masque by June Jacobs is always a great choice. Paraben and preservative free, the natural fruit enzymes combined with things like sweet almond oil and borage help improve the look and feel of the skin. It's available in back bar and retail sizes, be sure to have some retail sizes on hand!

The Papaya Enzyme Peel by Ayur-Medic Skincare is another option that is chock full of papaya goodness as well as lactic, salicylic, and acetic acid to help clear the skin.

If you prefer mixing your own, take a look at the Exfoliating Papaya Enzyme Mask / 1 Lb. Bulk by uQ. This pairs well with the Fruit Acid Peel Ampoules by uQ!

Just like the papaya, the Pumpkin Peeling Enzyme Masque by June Jacobs is a top seller. Full of essential fatty acids, vitamins A and C, as well as zinc, this helps exfoliate and aid in the healing process - all leaving the skin glowing!

Not to be outdone, Ayur-Medic has a phenomenal Pumpkin Exfoliant that is effective yet gentle!

For those clients that seem to have skin that is overly oily or just needs a gentle, effective exfoliation, be sure to have some fruit enzyme exfoliating products
on hand!
