Help Your Clients Beat the Winter Time Blues!

Winter time is the time for dry skin. Cracked hands are a common occurrence. This is something that everyone has to deal with. What can we do to get rid of this problem?? We have all tried many different lotions, yet we still have dry, cracked, and irritated hands.

Perfect timing we have a new product by June Jacobs-Rapid Healing Cream. Not only can you use this for your hands, but anywhere on your body!

This revolutionary clinically-tested face and body treatment helps soothe irritation and provides up to 24-hour moisturization.

Gentle yet effective, this non-greasy formula absorbs quickly to leave skin healthy, nourished and perfectly rejuvenated.

What I love about this product is the key ingredients used in it. The ingredient that drew me to it is Edelweiss Extract – A rare flower from the Swiss Alps known as the “survival star” is sustainably and organically cultivated, contains a high level of the anti-oxidant leontopodic acid and supports the skin's crucial protective barrier, enhancing its resistance to external stress factors and preserving skin's natural balance.

Sunscreen 101

Summer is in full swing, and many of your clients will be out swimming, hiking, vacationing and enjoying the warmth outside! While everyone knows they need to protect their skin, and sunblock is a highly effective solution, are your clients educated on the different types of sunblock? We have a broad range of skin protection at Pure Spa Direct to choose from! See the different types below.

Many sunscreens work by either absorbing, reflecting, or scattering light. Some use chemicals that combine with the skin to protect it from UV rays while others use naturally occurring minerals. I'm sure you have a variety of different clients who are sensitive to chemicals and are looking for a more natural solution to protect their skin from the sun, while others are content with the more traditional, chemical based sunblocks they know and love. Either way, why not carry a variety of types to retail in your spa? You'll be protecting your clients from damaging their skin while increasing profits for your business during the summer months!

Classic Sunscreen

The first type of sunscreen I'm sure most of your clients are familiar with is classic, or chemical based sunscreen. Classic sunscreens use chemically active ingredients that are designed to absorb and dissipate UVA/UVB rays. We have a great selection to choose from!


Our Advanced Sun Resistance SPF 30 Broad Spectrum Formula from June Jacobs is a great, high end sunscreen your clients will love. Paraben and preservative free, this blend of full spectrum chemical UV protectors is specially designed to protect delicate skin from sunburn and UV damage. 






Another great traditional sunscreen is our Sun Therape Moisturizer with SPF 35. It provides super absorbent hydration while helping to repair and protect skin from UVB and UVA exposure. The bonus is that it's also formulated with Pharmagel's exclusive Photosome Reconstructive Complex which can help to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your clients! 





Mineral Sunscreen

The other type of sunscreen is mineral based, which uses active ingredients like Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide to scatter and reflect UVA/UVB rays. This is ideal for your clients who are prefer to use more naturally derived products on their skin.


One of our best selling mineral based sunscreen is our BurnOut 18.6% Zinc Oxide Sunblock. I love it! It's great for clients who have sensitive skin. Generally, mineral based sunscreens go on chalky or white, but this formula goes on clear. It's also biodegradable, ocean-safe, petroleum-free and paraben-free!







Another great chemical-free sunscreen we carry is Our SPF 30 Sunblock by Ayur-Medic Skincare. Derived of nano zinc oxide, linoleic acid, glycine and tocopheryl acetatet, it uses the latest nano-technology to protect the skin from premature aging caused by exposure to UV light.

This is a great time to remind your clients about the importance of sun protection and offer some new sunscreen items. The new Sun Therape Moisturizers with SPF 35 by Pharmagel is a perfect sun protection retail item at this point in the summer because they not only protect the skin from UVA and UVB exposure, but they also help repair skin that has been exposed since summer started, as well as provide super absorbent hydration to dry skin they may be experiencing now.

The Sun Therape Moisturizers with SPF 35 are available in 3 types:


The Sun Therape Moisturizers with SPF 35 are formulated with Pharmagel's exclusive Photosome Reconstructive Complex™ to boost effectiveness, it helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Sunscreen and antioxidant ingredients provide a daily barrier that pampers skin while guarding from environmental damage.

Sun Damaged Skin---Prevention Is Key

I just read an article that referenced a study done at the University of Michigan Medical School that shows skin damage starts after just two daily exposures to a low amount of ultraviolet A1, or UVA1, light. These two lights are the ones our skin is exposed to every day and also the same that's in tanning beds.

TWO DAYS!?! It's never been a secret that certain UV rays are bad, obviously tanning beds are not a great choice either but I never realized how quickly the damage can occur. I used to hear people at the gym always proclaim they only went in the tanning bed for 10 minutes every day so they weren't concerned about skin damage...think again!!!

I know I sound like a broken record here but educating your clients is such a crucial aspect to the service you provide. Making them aware of the potential dangers and damages they (and their skin) may come across as well as providing preventative options and solutions are all key points to remember.

Now, sunscreen/sunblock isn't a kryptonite shield against UV lights however they are necessary in the battle for healthy skin.

Here are some great retail products to offer your clients as you educate them:

BurnOut 18.6% Zinc Oxide Sunblock / SPF 32 for Sensitive Skin / 3 oz
Advanced Sun Resistance SPF 30 Broad Spectrum Formula / 8.0 fl. oz. by June Jacobs Spa Collection
Protective Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 / 8.0 fl. oz. by June Jacobs Spa Collection 
Sunblock SPF 30 / 50 mL. by Amber Products
Sunblock SPF 30 / 32 oz. by Amber Products - this can be used as an add on to your facial services!

Don't forget the lips!!!

BURNOUT SPF 32 Lip Balms / 0.15 oz.

Another great way to help your client's avoid UV ray damage and boost your bottom line is to offer sunless tanning! Check out our world renowned line of spray tan solutions and equipment at the Sunless Store! Everything you need in one convenient spot and if you have questions, give us a call!! We love to talk spray tans!!

Papaya Is A Great Exfoliation Fruit!

Papaya is a great product to use on your skin to clean pores and to rid the skin of imperfections.  A Papaya is rich in Vitamins A, C and E and other anti-oxidants that can help in giving skin the moisture and protection it needs to stay healthy.  


Papaya is rich in Vitamins A, C, and E,
making it great for your skin!
Papain is an enzyme in Papaya that helps exfoliate your skin in the most gentle and natural way.  Its purpose is to break down surface dead skin cells and make them easier to remove. Papain acts as a exfoliation agent in this case. Since Papain is a natural ingredient, it doesn't dry out your skin as it exfoliates, instead it maintains moisture balance. Since your skin maintains its moisture, it looks younger. Papain is also antibacterial, increases immune response, and allows more oxygen into the cell area around the pores. 


Here at Pure Spa Direct, we have a number of Papaya masks, peels, and treatments that you may want to consider incorporating into your services for clients who yearn for gentle exfoliation:

Check them out, as well as our other great products that contain Papaya!
