Expand Your Business with Yoga!

More and more spas are offering overall wellness services for clients. Aside from facials, massages, and nail services, are you looking to expand your wellness menu? A great step would be to offer yoga classes to your clients! From stress relief, to heart health and increased flexibility, it's no secret that yoga is highly beneficial to overall wellness. With it's popularity these days, it might be beneficial to increase your business revenue. Did you know we carry yoga mats? Check them out below, along with other accessories to expand the menu of your spa! I'm sure you'll find that most of your clients who are coming in for spa services will be thrilled to know that your spa will soon offer yoga!

Seasonal Pedicure: Tropical Mango!

With summer being official, it's time to reconsider your spa services! What better way to do so than offer a seasonal pedicure? I'm not sure about you, but nothing screams tropics and summer vacation more than the aromatic scents of a mango. The mango is mainly cultivated in tropical climates and is a delicious, seasonal summer fruit. They contain over 20 vitamins and minerals, specifically high in vitamin A which is great for keeping the skin and hair moisturized. They are very high in antioxidants which is perfect for anti-aging and great for giving skin a healthy glow. 

Are you in need of a new menu service? We carry a variety of mango products here at Pure Spa Direct. A great seasonal treatment you can offer your clients is a Tropical Mango Pedicure! Not sure where to begin? Don't worry, we have you covered!



Our Cleansing Gel by California Mango is great for prepping your clients' feet for their pedicure. A rich combination of Aloe Vera, Vitamins and revitalizing herbs, this ultra-conditioning formula gently cleanses, leaving skin with a glowing, silky finish. To top it off, it will leave a delicious mango scent on the skin that lasts all day! Yum.





Next, exfoliate your clients' skin with our California Mango Natural Exfoliating Scrub. This is an all natural exfoliating formula containing a high concentration of pumice, aloe vera, jojoba oil, and vitamin E.






How awesome is this Mango Cuticle Oil from Scentuals? Why have boring, regular scented cuticle oil when you can keep the health of your clients' cuticles in great shape AND have them smell like mangoes. It's no argument in my opinion!








Apply our California Mango Spa Masque to your clients' feet to remove impurities from the skin. This clay based mask is rich in jojoba oil, meadow foam seed oil, aloe vera & vitamin e, and mango mud which absorbs oils. On top of smelling amazing, your clients will love the way their skin feels!







Lastly, to prep your clients skin before applying polish, moisturize your clients' skin with California Mango Extreme Creme. This creamy formula relieves dry skin instantly and leaves a soft layer of protection.

Get a Head Start With Your Fall Treatment Items!

As much as we don't want to believe it, summer is almost over. However, the fall season is quickly approaching and this is the prime time to start stocking up on all your products for your fall specials and services. These would be your pumpkin, cranberry, and pomegranate type products.

Here are some of the most popular and favorite fall treatment items:

These items definitely start to sell out quick as the fall approaches. So make sure to get a head start on it now to ensure you are stocked up and ready for your fall clients! Some great ideas for fall specials would be pumpkin masks and pedicure, cranberry massages, and even pomegranate scented waxes! What kind of fall specials ideas are you planning on this year?

Modern Wellness Approaches For Any Business

Visiting the spa is no longer only an indulgence,
but is often seen necessary for health benefits.
Wellness. We hear this word everywhere these days. The world is finally focusing on being healthy inside and out, from the foods we eat to the skin care products we choose.

Spas and salons are in a prime position to capitalize on wellness services no matter what they regularly offer.Years ago, people went to the spas once or twice a year to pamper themselves or to celebrate or commemorate a special occasion. Now, spa goers understand not only the stress relief benefits, but also the specific health conditions that spas can assist them with. This results in more frequent visits and visiting for more than one concern. This alone should be the reason you offer packages, specifically the "choose-your-own adventure" type of package -  give clients options to address their specific concerns! Options make clients feel in control and that you truly care about what is important to them.

I just read an article that had tips for businesses to vamp up their wellness offerings. One of the ideas that stuck out most was highlighting a different treatment genre each month. By genre the author was referring to trying a new piece of equipment, theme or type of treatment.

For equipment, try offering something new that you aren't currently offering. A safe way to be sure there is some interest is to poll your current clients. Ask them if there are services they would are receiving elsewhere, are wanting to try, or are curious about. Once you bring it in, offer a special introductory rate for the first month, create a new package based around it, including other services that complement it.

For themes, if you have multiple treatment rooms, pick one as your destination or theme room. You can change the decor of this room monthly, quarterly or whatever works for you. For example, during winter months you may want to have an exotic island theme with warm pictures on the walls, bright table linens, even pick relaxing tropical music to play in the room. Offer tropical treatments to be done in this room such as a coconut massage or Desert Mineral Detox Body Scrub! In summer months offer a refreshing cucumber facial or a cooling pain relief massage.

You could even pick a different type of service to focus on each month or specific ingredient. The key is to keep changing it up, make it exciting and enticing. Your clients will always have something new to look forward to and you create an opportunity to introduce them to everything you have to offer.

Finally, take a look at your current retail area. Is it full of individual products from skin care lines, some candles or gift type items? Why not make up some bundles? You could pair a facial tanner, detox scrub and a luxurious hydrating anti-aging lotion for a feel good at home glow bundle. You could bundle a candle with a pedicure kit and polish. Not to sound repetitive but, creativity is key. Think of bundles you or your friends would like, ask your clients what they would like. Not only does asking your clients give you valuable information but it makes them feel like you care.

The owners and manager I've spoken to all seem to agree that keeping things fresh, exciting and checking in with their clients often is a vital part of their success. I've heard time and time again, ask yourself if you would be excited to go to your business...how often and why? What would make you want to go more or spend more?

Trending for Spas: One-Stop Shops

In our very busy society, clients are more than willing to pay for convenience...if it seems comfortable and valuable. How can spas market this to increase profits? Become a one-stop shop for your clients!

In recent years, we have seen "niche" spas and salons growing...blow dry bars, weight loss clinics, brow bars, and the like. However, many spas are taking the other road, and finding it to be a very profitable road indeed!

Offering a variety of services and products all in one place, encamped in a warm and welcoming space that encourages browsing (and ultimately buying), is a great way to endear your business to your clients. Even incorporating fitness classes can add to the atmosphere!


Our society today is a very social society, so a friendly, casual space where friends can meet and enjoy services together will also increase your customer loyalty. Friends don't have to have the same services performed, but maybe one is looking for a mani/pedi, and another is needing a blow out and brow shaping. With your one-stop shop, they can each have the services they want performed, while never missing a beat in their conversation!

If you are nervous about expanding your menu to offer some out of the box services to your clients, don't be! Pure Spa Direct is YOUR one-stop shop, and we can assist you with ALL of your spa needs! Are you a hair salon looking to expand into some nail or massage services? Pure Spa can help you with all of the products, furniture, and equipment you need to offer your clients amazing services this spring! A massage clinic looking to expand into facial services? Don't worry, Pure Spa can help with that as well!

Contact our friendly and knowledgeable Customer Service team today, and see how you can expand your menu without stressing about it! We can be reached during our regular business hours of Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM - 5 PM EST at 800-434-0018. Busy during the day? Feel free to browse and order online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! Questions? Email us at any time at service1@purespadirect.com!

Cold Clients? Make Sure Your Bed is Warm as Temperatures Drop!

To me, nothing can derail "spa mode" more than a cold treatment room and bed. Cold sheets, brisk
Cold Treatments?
Make Sure Your
Clients Stay Warm.

temperatures and cold hands on my skin can ruin a treatment experience. This is one of the reasons I NEVER book morning appointments in the Fall here in New York. Most Spa's shut off their heaters overnight to save on electricity, inadvertently turning their treatment rooms, and all the lotions and gels into a deep freeze. It can take up to an hour to get temperatures regulated, and by that time I can't see my breath in the room, the treatment has ended.

Pure Spa Direct has several kinds of table warmers and heated blankets to keep clients wrapped in toasty comfort. Also, keep your treatment lotions and gels at a cozy temperature for clients with our wide selection of Lotion Warmers.

Exfoliation - An Important Step in Your Facial and Body Services!

Exfoliation is an extremely important and very essential part of your facial services. Build up of dead skin cells will cause skin to look dry and dull and proper exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers fresh new cells below. This opens the way for moisturizing products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective. Exfoliation is a necessary step and will produce a better end result to your facials. Better results will keep your clients coming back!

Not only is exfoliation critical during facials, it is also important that your clients are paying attention to other areas as well. Other areas like hands, feet, and even the scalp also need to be rid of dead skin cells in order to keep the skin in its best condition!

Hands
Dead skin cells build up on the hands, causing them to look dry and dull. Even the nail beds need to be attended to since they’re inclined to become ragged and develop tears and hangnails.


Feet
The skin on your feet is thick and it can be hard to keep hydrated. If socks are not worn regularly, the skin on the feet may be drier than normal and cracked, especially along the heels. In order to lock in moisture, it’s essential to remove the dead, white skin.

Scalp
Styling products lead to buildup, which makes the hair look dull, limp and hard to style. Exfoliating the scalp removes debris, unplugs logged follicles, and gets rid of excess sebum and dead skin to increase circulation and hair growth.


Lips
Dead skin tends to accumulate on the lips, leading to dryness and chapping. When the lips aren't smooth or free of dead skin, they can look dried out.

Chest
The skin on the chest is home to hundreds of pores, which produce as much oil as the face and back

Face Brush and Body Brush
Exfoliating Massage Gloves

Increase Profits by Adding on Makeup Services

 Offering makeup application services in the spa is an easy way to increase revenue, whether through retail sales or as a add-on to other spa services. The idea is to include the makeup application in the service instead of just offering it as an option. Having a makeup artist on staff at your spa will help offer a variety of full service spa packages and give you more opportunity to increase your profits.

Another way makeup application is an important part of spa services, is for your clients who come in mid day for a facial or facial waxing service. By offering makeup services to these clients, they will leave the spa without worrying about the redness they may experience after the service.

When adding a makeup artist to your staff, you are also going to want to add a makeup line, as so you can retail the products used during the service to your clients. By adding retail products along with the make up services, you will maximize your profit potential!


As an Esthetician, your clients trust you with their skin care needs and by adding in the right cosmetics along with your facial services, you will not only build on that trust with your clients, but you will also have an added benefit to your skin care treatments.

Here at Pure Spa Direct, we have all the cosmetic supplies you would need to provide make up services in your spa, like disposable applicators, cosmetic sponges, and cosmetic brushes. We also carry a ton of stylish makeup cases to store all your supplies! =)

Tips for Retail Success

We are barely past Halloween, and yet the time has officially come for all spas, salons, wellness centers and medi-spas to stock up on the holiday retail.  While retail products should be an integral part of your business plan year round, the holidays provide an additional impetus for your clients to browse, shop and buy.

We always advise our clients to retail, but the question is How? How do you transition from having products on display to constantly needing restock your shelves?  Well, here is a handy little guide:

Tips for Retail Success:

  1. EDUCATION.  Become THE source for information for all things retail by educating you staff.  Hold multiple training workshops and dispense reading materials so that your employees are able to comfortably and knowledgeably explain the following for all products.
    • Purpose
    • Ingredients
    • Features
    • Benefits
    • Application Procedure
    • Potential Reactions
    • Brand History
  2. TESTERS.  One is much more likely to purchase a product when he or she can touch it, smell it, taste it, etc.  When you shop at stores such as Sephora or Ulta, there are samples for virtually every single product.  By investing in at least 1 tester per retail item, your clients will be significantly more likely to invest themselves into the product.
  3. INCENTIVE PROGRAMS.  As a Salon or Spa owner, your main focus is increasing your business profit.  One of the main focuses for your employees, however, is increasing their personal income.  Have your goals meet in the middle by providing incentive programs and contests for selling retail products.  Just as your clients need a little push to invest in retail, your employees need motivation for selling products and boosting business. By offering bonuses or a rewards program for top sellers, you can boost sales, profits and company morale! In addition, certain manufacturers have their own rewards program in place.  By selling their products, you receive samples and complimentary items.  These free gifts can then be passed on to your victorious employees, at no expense to you. A total Win-Win-Win!
  4. INTEL. The easiest way to decide what products to retail is to get the information directly from the source: your clients!  Train your employees to be engaging and asking key questions, including the following:
    • What hair/facial/nail products are being used at home.
    • Opinions about said products.
    • Upcoming plans and events, such as vacations, weddings, graduation etc.
    • Personal cosmetic and aesthetic concerns.
    She was just introduced to her spa's new retail selections.
  5. AN EXPERIENCE.  According to Jill Van Ausdal of The Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge, you can increase retail sales by providing an all-encompassing experience instead, rather than just providing a single treatment for your client.  When the service is taken from a treatment to an experience, retail automatically becomes a part of the equation.
The team here at Pure Spa is literally chock-full of information, facts, figures, ideas and suggestions.  If you need help deciding what to retail or how to retail it, give us a call any time!

Fall-Inspired Spa Products For Your Clients

Fall is just around the corner, so you'll want to start thinking of some fall inspired items to offer your clients. Especially products that will help combat dry skin, which is caused from season changes. When I think of fall, the first thing I think of is the colors. Red, orange, yellow, etc...you get it. Which also happens to be the colors of pumpkins, cranberries, and pomegranates! These are some ingredients and scents you should think of when thinking of new items to offer your clients. Your clients are probably always looking for some kind of at home items they can use when they are not at the spa. I came across a couple items by June Jacobs Collection, that made me instantly think of the fall. The Perfect Pumpkin Peeling Enzyme Masque™ and Cranberry Pomegranate Moisture Masque™ are some great products to offer your clients this fall. Cranberry and pomegranate help to protect the skin because they are potent antioxidants which help to retain moisture. Also, cranberries help to stop the depletion of collagen and pomegranate extract help to tighten pores. The Perfect Pumpkin Peeling Enzyme Masque™ is detoxifying and contains pumpkin enzymes that aid in cell turnover, making skin look refreshed. This masque also contains Vitamins A and C plus zinc. June Jacobs products are paraben and preservative free and also contain an anti-oxidant blend of white, red and green tea extracts and goji berry, pomegranate and grapeseed extracts all work to improve skin tone, and essentially, fight the aging process. Sounds like all kinds of good stuff to me! Happy Fall! =)

Hydro Moisturize Your Hands & Feet this Winter with BasicCare!

Tis' the season of dry, cracked, and flaky skin! Every Winter (without fail), my hands become extremely dry, they crack, they're red and they hurt. I am an avid germaphobe and know the constant washing of my hands doesn't help, but I'm not going to stop washing them, so instead I searched for alternatives. I recently tried and loved the Hydro Moisturizing Gloves & Socks by Basicare. They have made a huge difference in the appearance and feel of my hands and feet already this Winter, and I highly recommend them to all! Use on yourself, your clients, or for retail profit!

  • Treatment Tip: Excellent add-on to a full body massage or facial. Start service by applying and massaging your favorite lotion or cream to your clients hands, and apply the gloves. Than follow suit with the feet or vice versa. Once the Gloves have been applied, allow the Hydro Moisture products to work their magic, while you do yours to the rest of the body.
  • *Recommended Massage Lotion: Lavender & Calendula Hydrating Massage Lotion / 1 Gallon by Biotone...invites your clients to relax!
In addition, the Hydro Moisturizing Gloves & Socks by Basicare, are an excellent item to add to your back-bar or retail collection. Feature them next to the moisturizers, and your clients will find it hard to resist to not purchase the combination: the moisturizer and the enhancer.

Plastic Surgery or A High Frequency Machine...I'll go with the High Frequency Machine

The older I get the more issues I have with my skin and the more money I have to shell out to try and fix it. It is not just one problem at a time, it is multiple problems at once! From wrinkles, acne, lines, dark circles, drooping, large pores, it just never ends! I'm sure you have had many clients with the same issue, and there are only so many treatments you can perform on a client in a day. High Frequency units are the all-in-one machine for all of your clients' skin problems.

High Frequency is used to kick-start the skin rejuvenation process. It enhances circulation, increase production of collagen and elastin, eliminate toxins and acne-causing bacteria, encourage lymphatic drainage, exfoliate dead skin cells, and assist with absorption of skin care products.

High Frequency current stimulation forces an infusion of oxygen-rich molecules into the skin, which cleanses, massages, stimulates blood flow, and dilates superficial blood vessels. Because of the increased blood flow, high frequency tones the skin (similar to muscle toning). Application of high frequency current promotes
a cleansing antibacterial action, and the skin is left feeling energized, rosy, firm, refreshed, and noticeably softer. The dilation of blood vessels pushes toxins away from the skin’s surface, and allows the skin cells to feast on increased nutrients and hydration.


How Does it Work?

With High Frequency skin treatment, a chemical reaction causes the emission of ozone into the air. Ozone is a form of oxygen that has germicidal properties and is extremely beneficial for treating seborrhea or acne skin. The more oxygen that surrounds the electrode, the more ozone is formed and the greater the effect. When the electrode is lifted away from the skin surface, more oxygen surrounds it, a more intense drying and healing action occurs.

High Frequency facial machines include glass electrodes which come in different shapes and sizes to treat various contours of the face and body. When applied to the surface of the skin, a mild electrical current passes through the neon or argon gas filled glass electrode causing it to emit a subtle glow. High Frequency electrodes produce either a neon orange or violet colored glow depending upon the inert gas that they are filled with. We have found that both colors produce equally effective results.

One Machine, endless Benefits!

June Jacobs- Helping to Combat Premature Aging!

The team at Pure Spa Direct is constantly searching to find innovative products that will deliver exceptional results to our clients and maximize your success. We feel we have accomplished great things by bringing you the best, with the recently added June Jacobs Spa Collection!

Recently, I have been fortunate enough to try a couple of products from the June Jacobs line. The Cellular Collagen Eye Serum is a miracle product! I am in my late 20’s and I am showing signs of premature aging. The most effected areas are my eyes and lips. I have been using the eye serum regularly for one week now, and already have noticeable differences to the fine lines around my eye area. When you apply it, you instantly feel it working. It tingles a little bit letting you know it is doing its job to plump out the wrinkles. I love all the natural ingredients in the formula, and that its paraben and fragrance fee. This is by far the best and most effective eye serum I have ever tried!

The Lip Kit is a great treat! Try it yourself or add it as an add-on service. The 3-set process works wonders to exfoliate, hydrate, and replenish your lips. The sugar scrub feels amazing knowing you are removing dry and dead skin from the lip area. The oil in the scrub lingers on the lips to make them feel extra soft and smooth. I love that the kit comes with a masque specific for the lips. After the second step, your lips will already feel amazing and you still have one step to go. There is no better way to finish the 3- step process than with the Lip Renewal. It is infused with supreme hydrating ingredients that will have your lips feeling supple all day long! With their proven effectiveness, I couldn’t recommend these products more! You must try them and see the results for yourself!

A Step Above - June Jacobs Spa Collection

As a business owner, you are always looking for the perfect way to be the top in a competitive market. You know that if your services do not stand out, the likelihood of repeat business drops. And we all know how repeat business is what we crave!

Pure Spa Direct has found the answer - an AMAZING line of skin care products which will keep your clients coming back and begging for more - the June Jacobs Spa Collection. Previously only available in 6-star spas and resorts, this entire line is now available through June Jacobs' exclusive wholesale distributor, Pure Spa Direct.

June Jacobs' products are free of parabens, preservatives, petrochemicals, synthetic dyes, sulfates, and fragrances, which makes them perfect for those clients seeking a natural skin care line that DELIVERS!

And when I tell you these products deliver, I mean mind-boggling, bowled-over, absolutely amazed at the difference in my skin since I have started using a few of the June Jacobs products.

As a teen, I was afflicted with a decent case of acne. Now that I am in my late 20's, the acne is mostly under control, but I am left with dark scars on my face. These scars are the bane of my existence - they are all I see when I look in the mirror, and I am forever trying new products to make them disappear. Of course, all these products over-promised and under-delivered - until I came across the June Jacobs Brightening Serum and Brightening Moisturizer.

When we were told to choose three June Jacobs products we felt we could not live without trying, I immediately starting researching which products would most help my scarring. Before long, I found that June Jacobs offers a Brightening Serum and Brightening Moisturizer. They are described as products to promote cell turnover and control the enzymes that cause hyper-pigmentation, while employing natural whitening agents to reduce existing dark spots. Sounds like heaven to me!

After using these products for ONE DAY, I immediately noticed a lightening in my scars. After THREE days, I had multiple people commenting on how clear, even, and bright my skin looked. And now, a week later, I have to stop every time I walk past a mirror to marvel at how fantastic my skin looks! I have never felt this confident in the appearance of my skin before!

Probably due to my previous acne experiences, I often feel my face needs to be cleared and exfoliated. Papaya is an excellent exfoliator, and I am a huge fan of papaya masks. When I found that June Jacobs offered the Papaya Purifying Masque, I knew I had to try it.

The first thing I noticed when I opened the jar of Papaya Purifying Masque was how DELICIOUS this masque smelled! Anyone who has used a papaya mask knows that they do not usually have the most enticing scent - yet I could have sniffed this masque all day long! It is a cream masque, and I applied it using a facial brush with synthetic bristles in a thin, even layer. I expected to feel the masque working away at the top layer of my skin, but I felt nothing. I will admit it, I was a little skeptical because of this....but I was positively astonished at how clear and even my skin looked when I rinsed the masque off. My pores have never looked as clear, my skin tone as even. I am in love with my new-found beautiful skin.
