Head Off Dry Winter Skin Through Retail

In a perfect world, every client would be able to come see you on a regular schedule to address any and all skin concerns. Time and money get in the way of that so having seasonal "go to" retail products can be successful.  Depending on where you live, dry winter skin can be a challenge for many of your clients.

Farmaesthetics Herbal Hydration Complex - Remedy Reserve Mask makes an excellent addition to any retail line up. Aside from being awarded the best "5 Minute Complexion Makeover", this 100% natural mask is great for any skin type. From calming irritations to being touted as a great hangover recovery mask (perfect for holiday party season!) your clients can use this to maintain moisture levels between services and for repairing.

The size and packaging makes it great for gifts for family, friends, coworkers and makes a great travel companion for your on the go clients!

Kermit The Frog Was Wrong, it IS easy being green - When You're Green Tea

It's no mystery to many adults these days that drinking green tea can be good for your health. Some may even know that it's chock full of antioxidants, some may not. Those same antioxidants can be just as good for peoples outsides as well as their insides!

Green tea, aside from tasting good, has been found to help prevent collagen breakdown making it a favorite for fine lines and wrinkles. Green tea has also been shown to help draw out impurities and aid in healing the skin - hello, twofer?!? Pulling out impurities while moisturizing - add is some hyaluronic acid to lock that moisture in and you have yourself a ninja treatment.

Clients with dark and/or puffy issues under the eyes? Green tea can help reduce inflammation and help to increase circulation. A green tea facial with an add on of baby magic globes, and the Revitalizing Eye Gel by June Jacobs, sounds soothing right? I closed my eyes just thinking about it! Don't forget to retail your add ons!

If you need me, I'm heading to the kitchen to make some green tea! Send me an email at christine@purespadirect.com if you have any questions while I'm away :)

Soaking In A Winter Wonderland!

Have you been thinking about your winter menu, or bringing something new and exciting to your services? Here is one that I wish I could take advantage of today on this cold, rainy day in NY!

All you need to do, is come up with a clever name for the service! This is a great soak to relax sore muscles, clear up congestion and drift off into deep relaxation. The essential oils in this also make it a great treatment for your male clients.

Here are a few reasons this makes an excellent addition to a winter menu:
Clearing Winter Soak
Mix together 3 tablespoons of eucalyptus leaves with 3 tablespoons of bilberry leaves in a mixing bowl. Add in 4 drops of spruce essential oil and mix well. Pour the herbs into a muslin bag using a funnel.

When filling the hydrotherapy or soaking tub, place the muslin bag in under the running water. Pour 3/4 cup of Himalayan Salt into the water, making sure it dissolves. Assist the client into the tub and allow them to soak for up to 20 minutes. Assist client out of the bath, follow up with some dry brushing, desert mineral detox scrub, a massage and/or detoxifying body wrap!

Aromatherapy for Fall

Do you have clients who come in congested or with head colds now that the chillier weather is approaching? If so, it may be beneficial to switch up your essential oils you offer your clients during the Fall months, so you can better serve those who suffer from seasonal allergies. 

A recent article I read highlighted certain scents that can help clear your clients sinuses and also relax their muscles if they are feeling under the weather. It's great to have a custom essential oil blend ready for each individual client if you haven't already considered! Check out some ideas below:
Frankincense
This essential oil is great for warming up the body, especially with the colder months ahead. It’s also known for its comforting properties and can help to promote healthy cell regeneration. 

Eucalyptus
Eucalyptus oil can help to relive muscles aches and pains, and can also help to boost the immune system - perfect for your clients who are suffering from a cold!

Lavender
Definitely our most popular selling essential oil! This can help to relax your clients and soothe their muscle aches and pains while boosting their immune system as well! 

I highly recommend blend the above oils for a customized Aromatherapy for Fall that you can present to your clients during the upcoming months! Be sure to check out our site - we have quite an extensive list of essential oils to choose from!

Rose Quartz - Stone of Love and Light

Rose quartz is one of my favorite crystals, as it is usually known as the stone of love and light! I was excited to see the new Rose Quartz Tealight Candle Holder in the "Just Added" section of our site. Rose quartz is a translucent pink crystal and is said to be the stone of unconditional love as it opens the heart chakra. It is also said to attract love and bring a sense of calm and peacefulness to a room. The soothing energy of Rose Quartz can also help heal a broken heart!

If you're looking to revamp your spa and add little charming touches to each room, I'm sure your clients will love the look of this beautiful tealight candle! You can place a small pillar candle or a tealight candle within. Each candle holder is a unique piece, varying in size and shape from all others as it is carved from a natural piece of crystal. In love with them yet? Get them while you can, as these beautifully unique candle holders are made in limited batches are only available while supplies last! I'm sure you'll clients will fall in love, too. Did I mention these are great for retailing?!

Soothing Summer Body Treatment!

As we near the end of June, I've had quite a few conversations with clients gearing up for their summer menu options. Many have asked about body treatments for skin that has been overexposed to the sun. Aside from having quality sunscreen and lip protection to retail, here is a great body mask to help calm sun scorched skin.

Sun Skin Saver Body Mask
*this mask is soothing and hydrating to help calm and nourish skin that has been overexposed to the sun

In a rubber mixing bowl, mix 3T Kaolin powder, 1 T Buttermilk Powder and 1 T of honey powder until combines. Add in 2 T of Aloe Gel and mix well. Place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabi or in another bowl filled with warm water.

Prep the client as you normally do for body treatments and apply the mask using a brush or your hands starting at the feet. Make sure the temperature of the mix is not too hot so warm that it causes more pain to the already sensitive skin!

Leave the mask on for 20 minutes before removing. Follow up with your favorite hydrating lotion like the Alchimie Forever Daily Defense Cream SPF 23 or Alchimie Forever Kantic Calming Cream !

This soothing mask will have your clients sighing with relief!

Yummy Skincare! The Beautifying Benefits of Cocoa Butter

Looking for a skincare product that's so delicious you kind of just want to eat it? I'm sure your clients are too, and while I definitely do not recommend eating our cocoa butter products right out of the jar (please don't), I have a great list of its beautifying benefits that will make your clients keep coming back for seconds (to put on their skin, of course).

Cocoa butter is made from whole cocoa beans that are fermented, roasted, and then separated from their hulls. The remaining residue is.. voila.. cocoa butter! Check out some of the beautifying benefits of cocoa butter below as well as products we have for your spa that your clients will love!

Hydrating


Due to its fatty acid and nutrient content, cocoa butter is great for moisturizing dry skin and keeping it that way. Are you in need of a new retail product you can suggest to your clients? You should try out our Queen Helene Cocoa Face and Body Butter Cream! Aside form the attractive packaging, your clients will fall in love with the way it smells and makes their skin feel!





Soothing


Cocoa butter is known for its healing properties because it's so rich in nutrients. It can be helpful for your clients with irritated skin or even eczema. Try adding some cocoa butter into your next facial! Our Cocoa Butter Facial Scrub by Queen Helene is a great exfoliate to incorporate into your skin services (I told you their packaging was cute)!





Healing

The healing properties of cocoa butter are amazing! Due to its high antioxidant content, cocoa butter has the ability to greatly reduce the appearance of scars, minor scratches, and even stretch marks. 

Healthy Hair



It's not just for your skin, either! Cocoa butter is hydrating for dry and damaged hair, and it's also great for strengthening it. Incorporate a Cocoa Butter Deep Conditioning Treatment into your salon services using our Organic Pure Cocoa Butter. Your clients will appreciate the scent, as well as their new, healthy hair.

Close Shave...

I can't be sure, but I think most men are like me -- they hate to shave. The thought of dragging the blade across my face just brings up dread. It takes time, it hurts. Yep, I hate it. I've tried all sorts of products for sensitive skin, with aloe, with topical pain ingredients. No luck. Hate them. Hate, hate, hate. Did I say hate? Redness, blotches, and patches of unshaven hair on your face and neck.

The choices: 1) continue with the hate relationship, 2) forget it and look like Grizzly Adams, or 3) find something better. My razor already has 4 blades and an extra single blade for tricky areas. The handle vibrates like a billion times a minute from the battery inside. So I think I've maxed out on the hardware.

Finally I found the Grooming Lounge line of products. First I'll say that the phrase "line of products" kinda scares me... I like simple. I spoke to a Grooming Lounge expert and figured out what I needed was just 2 items from the line. 2 I can deal with:

Grooming Lounge Beard Shave Oil
Grooming Lounge Beard Destroyer

Both were "manly" enough names for me, so I was ready to try them. All I can say is wow. Even the little ritual for using them somehow adds to the experience. Shower, then re-wet your face with warm water. Shake 3-4 drops of Shave Oil in to your hand, rub all over your face. Squeeze out like a quarter-sized amount Beard Destroyer Shave Cream in your hand, massage it in to your stubble. Put a few drops of water on fingers and rub into cream/beard to activate.

Wow. How wow? Here is what the combo does:
The Oil:
It Lifts Whiskers (with Meadowfoam Oil)
It Lubricates (with Peppermint Oil)
It Soothes (with Avocado Oil)
The Cream:
It Cushions the Razor (with Sandalwood Oil)
It Enhances Razor Glide (with Rosemary Oil)
It Fights Ingrowns (with Eucalyptus)

Grooming Lounge products are THE IDEAL retail item you can offer men. Pure Spa Direct's got em! Click here and see:
