Strapless White Sticky Feet!

These sticky sandals (or sticky feet as the guys in the warehouse say) are pretty cool and they were massively popular this last week! You actually peel off a film and step on them and they stick! Most of the clients who buy them seem to do spray tanning services... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great White Strapless Sticky Sandals HERE!

Aha! The Bra!

Get your bras here! Disposable bras were a hit last week. I get it - wear 'em and throw 'em away. I wish I had that luxury with my socks! Anyways, the most popular were Black in the L/XL size... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great Intrinsic Disposable Bra selection HERE!

Earth Day 2015

In honor of Earth Day being this week, what better way to celebrate than stocking up on some organic, eco-friendly products for your boutique? I love all things organic and natural, especially if it's earth friendly! Earth Day started back in the 1970s to bring awareness to environmental issues and how to address them, specifically with the passing of the Clean Air and Water Act which was groundbreaking at the time. It has since come a long way! With the new millennium, an emphasis on global warming and clean energy awareness is the latest issue.


We have a variety of organic and eco-friendly products here at Pure Spa Direct. See below for some of my favorites!


Eco-Fin is a great brand we love, and they make a variety of all natural, earth friendly products. My favorite is "The Balm" Moisturizing Balm which is great for retailing! Using 100% all natural ingredients, your clients will love this pocket-size moisturizer which is great for dry hair ends, lips, cuticles, knees, elbows and feet.






Are your clients looking to extend their salon tan at home using all natural, organic and paraben-free ingredients? The Norvell 360 Sunless Eco-Mist organic self-tanning spray is perfect for that! It is safe and easy to apply at home. Bonus points for being eco-friendly and 100% vegan for your animal loving clients! :)





If you are currently using wax candles at your spa, you might want to re-consider investing in some eco-friendly LED candles. They are designed to flicker just like a real candle without the flame, smoke, and wax mess! These candles are also safer for your lungs and indoor air quality - crucial elements that your Earth conscientious clients will definitely appreciate! My favorite is the Crackle Candle Glass Votive. We have tons to choose from, though. Click here to see!


I am personally a huge fan of the Alaska Glacial Mud Company, as their products are natural, organic, and just straight up fabulous! Aside from the fact that they use wild & certified organic ingredients only, there are no animal by-products or testing, and the glacial mud is sustainably hand-carved. What's so amazing is that 10% of the profits are donated to wilderness preservation, habitat restoration, environmental defense, and education in the Copper River Watershed. Their Purifying Mineral Mud Masque in Relaxing Vanilla & Lavender happens to be my favorite. Your clients will surely be hooked on this line.

Intrinsics Facial Caps

These facial caps by Intrinsics remind me of the lunch ladies in my middle school days. Now I'm sure there are other uses for these as they were selling fast this week. They do always sell during tanning season so it could have something to do with that... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great Intrinsics Facial Caps HERE!

Creating & Maintaining the Perfect Sunless Tan!

Summer is around the corner, and as the temperature is heating up, our clothes are becoming lighter.  We are showing more skin and want to look appealing in our tanks, skirts, and dresses. Sun and sun damage (as scarily shown in the left pic) is old news, and sunless tanning (as beautifully shown in the right pic) is all the new!  Every year at Pure Spa Direct, our Sunless Tanning clients, inquiries, and orders are growing dramatically.

Out with the Old...
...In with the New!
One of the most common inquires we receive is regarding the maintenance of the Sunless Tanning Equipment.  Like every other appliance in our world, wear and tear is normal with every day use.  Aside from using the best Sunless Solutions on the market by Pure Sunless and Extended Vacation, the key factor in "Sunless Tanning Excellence" is also the equipment.  Keeping your equipment up-to-date, and clean is imperative in creating that perfect sunless tan. So how do you best maintain your equipment?

See below for some answers to our most frequently asked questions:

1) How Often Should I Clean My Spray Gun?
  • It is important to clean your Spray Gun DAILY!  Many clients ask if the gun needs to be cleaned after each use, and while it is recommend, we suggest you clean the gun each time it is put to rest. If you do 1-2 tans a day (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) then yes, the gun must be cleaned after each use. The key factor to remember is anytime the gun is put to rest, it should be cleaned to ensure maximum results. 
2) How Do I Clean My Spray Gun?  (General Instructions for Cleaning MaxiMist Units - other units may vary)
Steps:
1) Disconnect the Spray Gun from the Air Hose 
2) CAREFULLY unscrew the Solution Cup. If there is left-over solution in the cup, either close the cup with a lid, or pour the remaining solution into a proper storage container.  *You may pour the extra solution back into it's original solution container, as long as it is done immediately!* 
3) Rinse the solution cup under running warm water until it is clean.
4) Fill the cup to 50ml (1-2 ounces) with warm water. Reconnect the spray gun to the air hose, and turn on the turbo unit. Direct the spray gun to a safe area and spray the clean water through the gun, until the cup is empty.
5) Turn off the turbine unit, disconnect the spray gun and unscrew the cup. Be sure to wipe all exposed areas dry.
*CAUTIONDo not submerge the spray gun under water. Do not rinse the tip and air cap while they're connected to the gun, as water may collect under the air the cap and plate, causing mineral buildup.
6) To clean the Solution Cup, unscrew the cup lid and remove the Air Cap Ring. Rinse the threads under warm running water, and then wipe down, till they are clean and dry.
7) Remove the Air Cap. Rinse it under warm running water, and wipe it down till it's clean and dry.
8) (if necessary) Remove the air distributor plate and rinse it under warm running water as well.
*To Re-install the three pieces, just reverse the removal procedure. 

**For Additional Maintenance (Recommended weekly):  
1) Remove the  Solution Nozzle  for rinsing. The Solution Nozzle  can be easily removed by placing the tip of an adjustable wrench or spanner on the two flat areas of the nozzle, and twist counter-clockwise to remove it.  *CAUTION:  There is a gasket (seal) around the thread of the solution nozzle, that must be re-installed correctly or leakage will occur!
2) The solution needle can also be removed for additional maintenance. To remove it, turn the solution flow screw counter-clockwise until it comes out of the spray gun.  *CAUTION:  Needles are very fragile! Be careful when removing the 'solution flow screw' as there is a small spring around the needle. Do not lose it. This is important to the operation of the spray gun. Set the spring aside and pull the trigger all the way back until you can grab the needle with your finger tips. Pull the needle out from the back of the spray gun. Once removed, rinse under warm running water, clean and dry it. Re-install by reversing the removal procedure.... Viola! Your spray gun should be perfectly clean and ready for the next use! 

2) How Often Should I Clean the Filter? And How Do I Do It? 
1) It is IMPORTANT to clean the filter weekly. This is important to allow your turbine motor to breathe freely, as a clogged/dirty filter will only cause the turbine to overheat and burn out prematurely.
2) To clean the filter (only applies to units with a removable filter), locate it, remove it, rinse it under warm water and simply replace it. *Hint- If your filter becomes damaged, just go to your local pet store, as you may replace it with aquarium or pond filter.  It will just need to be cut to the appropriate size.

3) When Should I Replace My Sunless Tanning Equipment?
1) Simple answer... when it stops working correctly.  By the time any of the units we carry stop working, you would have performed so many tanning services, you would know when something wasn't right.
2) Most of our equipment offers a one year warranty and we do sell replacement parts.

If you have any questions on any of our Sunless Tanning Equipment or would like to purchase replacement parts, just contact Pure Spa Direct Customer Service Today!

How to? Sunless Spray Tanning Application....

At Pure Spa Direct, we are a MAJOR advocate for anything sunless! We have the LARGEST selection of SPA & SALON supplies, and the MOST LUXURIOUS sunless tanning solutions and body care on the market (in my opinion and our clients). What also sets us apart is our Customer Service. When you call us (as long as we are open), you will be greeted by a live person that cares and actually wants to help you. If you have a question that we don’t immediately know the answer to, we will do our best to find out and will call you back. Our goal is to serve you, so you can service and pamper others.

A universal goal of the spa and salon industry is to BEAUTIFY! One way to drastically enhance the appearance of all your clients is through Sunless Spray Tanning. People are increasingly becoming afraid of the sun, and and are searching for alternatives. Spray Tanning is the fastest growing sector in the industry, and is just going to continue growing at an astronomical rate. Not to mention... the IMMENSE profit potential!

Since we are a premier sunless distributor, we receive calls all the time wondering if we provide training on the application. While, we are more than happy to answer any questions, and provide guidance, we leave the training up to you. Spray Tanning, like an art, can become mastery with practice and experience. If you are new to this, I found an excellent video that shows how a salon in New York City applies the basic principles of performing a tanning service to help jump start your training. Enjoy! ;-)

Do you have any tips to share on Spray Tanning Application?
