Healthier, Safer Alternative to UV Tanning: Spray Tanning Can Boost Your Confidence and Your Profits

On October 25, 2011, the LA Times reported that a new study indicates that "For every four visits per year to a tanning booth, risk for basal and squamous cell carcinoma jumped 15% and risk for melanoma rose 11%." Wow. That's a scary thought. A tan makes you look slimmer, healthier, and boosts your confidence. But is it worth the increased cancer risk?

There is always another solution....one that is safe, effective, and
can be a huge profit center for your tanning or salon business. Sunless tanning! Sunless tanning has come a long way from the orange, streaky "fake tan" it was when it was first developed. Now, you can offer your clients a safe way to remain tan all year round, and even offer various shades and darknesses to keep even your most discriminating clients happy!

By offering the Pure Sunless Tanning Solutions and Extended Vacation Tanning Products, you open up many new avenues of profit for your company, while offering your clients a safe, affordable alternative to UV tanning! With treatment costs as low as $2 (using Tahitian Tea or Premium tanning solution), your potential profit from 1 gallon of tanning solution could be $1,650 or more! If you sell just 25 Extended Vacation Tan Extenders per week, your total profit from that product alone is $14,400!

Not only is sunless tanning a smarter choice for your clients, it is a smarter choice for your business as well!

Spice Up Massage Treatments with Cooling and Warming Therapies by Sombra

Here is a quick tip from my Massage Therapist friends and clients:

For your clients who are experiencing stranger-than-usual back, neck or shoulder pain, adding a small portion of warming or cooling lotion to your massage mixture can help add variety to your services. Also, the warming or cooling sensation can help your clients find relief, in addition to the manual manipulation of the muscles that you are providing.

A great brand to use for Warming and Cooling Therapy is Sombra. With both gels and lotions, Sombra has a diverse selection of bottle sizes, samples and therapies for you to use on your clients and retail for them as well!

What do you like to add to your massage lotions and creams to spice up the experience for your clients? Also, what retails well?

Put Your "Masque" Back On!


I know it's almost Halloween, but these "masks" aren't for scaring, although some do look a little scary! UQ Masques have been very popular this week. They come in a variety of uses from hydration masques to collagen masques to feet and hand masques. So don't be "tricked" this year by mediocre masques. "Treat" yourself to one of these!... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great uQ Masque selection HERE!

HIV from a Manicure? Safety Counts! And it does NOT have to be expensive.

Keep it CLEAN! 
Trust me, your clients are paying attention! I have ALWAYS taken my own tools for manis / pedis, but no matter what, the nail tech reaches for "what she likes to use". And it is almost always a dirty buffing block! Yet I don't want that old, dirty thing touching me! It is visibly covered in nail oil, cuticle peelings and dust from heavy use. I recently read a very alarming article on About.com By Tracee Cornforth, that said, "just having cracks or broken skin around your fingernails can lead to HIV / AIDS, as well as other infections." Yikes!! It's important for clients to see that you care about their health and safety... reach for something clean! These new Super Mini White Nail Block are the perfect solution for clients and technicians.
Only Four and a half Cents EACH!

  1. These small, hygienic little white buffing blocks take up VERY little space. Easy to have several packs on hand with all your clients!
  2. Soft, safe edges so there is no skin abrading, tearing or damaging the cuticle area.
  3. Create client loyalty by showing you care about their health!
  4. These baby blocks are affordable!  Only 4.5 CENTS each!  For less than a nickel...  you can't afford not to have these!
  5. Great for Manicures & Pedicures.

Please keep in mind that all your implements and tools should be sterilized according your State's laws.  Pure Spa has a large selection of Sterilizers, Autoclaves and Sanitary Nail Kits.
