Spas Source Local Plants and Flowers For Custom Spa Treatments

In a recent article by Nicole Altavilla  for American Spa Magazine, Nicole shared some of the personalized treatments spas are creating from locally sourced plants and flowers. 

According to the article, spas like Spa Matilda in San Miguel de Allende, Floral Compresses
Treatment include the application of warm compresses (Poultice) filled with locally grown dried flowers, such as lavender, orange blossom, and rose.

At Spa Heaven at Borgo Santo Pietro (Tuscany, Italy), "Fresh flowers are picked daily from the spa gardens and placed throughout the spa. What’s more, the spa boasts an alfresco canopied therapy suite next to the garden for guests to enjoy the intoxicating scents of jasmine, rose, and other flowers while they are pampered. Also, some of the spa’s treatments feature herbs and flowers handpicked before the treatment, such as the Borgo’s Nature’s Bounty ($287, 2 hours), which features a basil, rosemary, and sea salt body scrub; a massage; and a facial that includes a honey and lavender mask."

Aspira The Spa at The Osthoff Resort (Elkhart Lake, WI) offers the Wild Chamomile and Lavender Body Masque ($130, 50 minutes). Treatment includes an application of the spa’s signature body mask using wild chamomile and lavender, grown and harvested from the resort’s own Osthoff Gardens.

Are you interested in offering herbal based treatments but don't have a fresh field of botanicals to source from, Pure Spa Direct has a rich selection of bulk herbs and poultices for creating your own, bespoke treatment compresses for spa services.

I adore the idea of creating a therapeutic service from indigenous flora, this is definitely the kind of regional and bespoke treatment that my husband and I look for on the menu when "spa-ing" in different parts.

Non-Surgical Esthetic Treatments On The Rise

In an April 2017 article from SkinInc.com, it's reported that the North America esthetic services market are estimated to be worth $28.15 billion by the year 2024, increasing at a CAGR of 7.7% for each year.

This data was gathered through a recent Transparency Market Report. According to the Skin Inc.
article, the report broke up esthetic services into surgical services, non-surgical services, and reconstr­uctive procedures. Surgical services were the largest portion of the market share with 43.6% in 2015.

Though not the largest segment, non-surgical services have begun to gain in popularity. Among the most popular non-surgical service treatments were derma fillers, which represented 68.7% of the non-surgical market share.

I have noticed that many spas here on Long Island are adding these types of services with the participation of a licensed Physician. It's a great way to keep facial clients' business "in house" for all their beauty needs.

"Honey makes the skin silky smooth..."
Honey is not just for tea and toast!

At the Jumeirah Frankfurt's Talise Spa in Frankfurt, Germany it's also used for slathering all over your body with a paste of granulated fruit. Named the, "The Skyline Honey Treatment", the honey is gathered from the hotel's own rooftop hives. Great way to turn a hum drum body treatment into something extraordinary.

There is a great article in the February issue of Day Spa Magazine about the benefits of Halotherapy.  What does the word Halotherapy mean? The word "halo" is derived from the Greek halos, meaning "salt".  Halotherapy means "salt therapy"; a therapeutic treatment for everything from
asthma to acne, and it's been used for treating ailments for centuries.

Many Ways to WARM UP your SPA!

It's one of those winters where everything feels cold! Keeping all things toasty and warm for clients is key, that's why I want to talk about ALL THINGS WARM! If you type in the word "warmers" into our search box at purespadirect.com, you will find a great list of products, gadgets, blankets and equipment that can create warmer surroundings for clients. Lets take a look at some of the results.
Quilted Blankets are
Great for Style & Warmth

1) Towel Warmers! Whether you need to hold 12 hot towels or 360 - we have hundreds of models to
choose from.

2) Manicure Lotion & Oil Warmer. Cold lotion and cold oil = cold feelings. Keep things warm and fuzzy with help from these units.

3) Space Heaters & Humidifiers.  Lets face it, there are some rooms in your spa that are too hot or too cold. Cold treatments are no fun. Warm up your space with a little heat, and add some humidity to overly hot and dry rooms.

4) "More Blankets Please!"  I am one of those clients that is ALWAYS asking for more blankets. I am ALWAYS cold during a treatment. The worst is when a spa doesn't have any, and I get a pile of towels laid over me. Spas, you need good quality spa bedding for clients. The BEST is when the therapist fires up a table warming blanket  or places a thick, quilted blanket on me.  Those are the spas I return to!

I'm not one to brag but my skin looks pretty darn good most of the time. After all, I work here at
Mega Moisture Packed into One Mask
Kantic Brightening Moisture Mask.
PureSpaDirect.com, and have access to some of the BEST professional aesthetic products on the market. Yet this winter has been BRUTAL on my skin. Even my husband (who notices NOTHING), keeps asking me, "Why does your skin look so dry? It looks like an onion!" Nice guy, right? So with that, I decided to try my sample of Alchimie Forever Kantic Brightening Moisture Mask.

Oats, known for their softening properties, are combined with wild pansies to speed the recovery of distressed skin and calm irritation. Antioxidants from grape extracts protect the skin from environmental stress, while the powerful blueberry reduces facial redness. Formulated in Switzerland.

Formulated in Switzerland (I'm obsessed with Swiss skincare). Dermatologist-formulated and tested. Cruelty-free and vegan-friendly.

Alchimie Antioxidant Technologies:
Get rid of the dry skin blues
With this pink & powerful
Mask
Blueberries (anthocyans, quercetin, resveratrol), wild pansies (quercetin), oats (coumarins), grapes (anthocyanidins, catechin, resveratrol), vitamin E.

I'd like to be wearing this color when I am holding my boarding pass outta New York this winter... on my way to Aruba!

Salons, this is a great color to have on hand for vacationers! It is groovy green that is cool enough to appeal to all ages.

Spa Retail: Haute Couture Skin Care for $25,000?

As like many spa goers, I am obsessed with finding a holy grail anti-aging protocol.  Some of the higher end spas we have visited retail products in the hundreds of dollars per jar. I would say that creams / serums in the $150 - $250 price range in spa retail is common among five and six star spas. Yet my eyes nearly popped out of my head while reading that the Peninsula Hotel's Spa is offering a skin care program from Biologique Recherche by Dr. Philippe Allouche that is a made to order, custom product selection for financially privileged clients.

Hope for younger looking skin
charges a hefty price tag
After analysis, your bespoke skin care kit for $25,000 will specifically address your needs with highly specialized creams and serums.  Each month your program will be adjusted to account for environmental and hormonal changes. (I love this idea because in my 40's - my hormones reveal something new and wacky each month!) The program incorporates more than 60 active ingredients to target concerns like, hyper pigmentation, acne, wrinkles and dehydration.

If I win the Mega Millions, I will be reviewing this kit for you all personally... from my suite at the Peninsula Hotel of course!

Neck Add-On Treatment - New Crystal Mask Targets Rings, Wrinkles and Aging Decollete

After 40, neck creams, treatments and serums take on a notable interest for facial clients. No matter how great the skin your face or hands looks... a neck with rings and wrinkles will age your entire look drastically. 

I was very excited to see these new Collagen Crystal Neck Masks come in recently that not only target
Try a Neck Treatment Before a Party...
the neck, but the decollete (chest area) as well. This is a superb add on treatment for age concerned clients and I would also recommend one before a dressy affair where a lower cut top / dress will be worn.

The Collagen Crystal Neck Mask come in a 24 Pack for only $43.99.  At a treatment cost of only $1.83 each, you have a lot of room for pricing.

Each treatment mask helps to lift the skin to tighten and create firmness to the neck. Each mask contain collagen, amino-acids and natural plant essences to help firm, tone, moisturize and hydrate. Apply for up to 20 minutes.
