Reeds Diffusers are terrific... they are a great way to add a aroma therapy to the air in your spa, salon, office, home... pretty much anywhere.  Pure Spa Direct just added amazing oil diffuser components form Ginger Lily Farms that let you customize your Reed Diffusers to your liking.  Choose from the amazing Spanish glass jars, add reeds and then select your diffuser oil... voilĂ ... personalized diffusers!!

Benefits of Reed Diffusers:
  • No Flame or Heat: Unlike candles, the reed diffuser has no flame to worry about. This makes the reed diffuser a safer alternative to candles.
  • No Going Out: with incense or candles the aroma is temporary relying on active lighting. The reed diffuser lasts all day and night. The only monitoring a reed diffuser needs is a weekly turning of the reeds.
  • No Smoke: incense is nice but the smoke is not so wonderful. The reed diffuser achieves the same purpose but without any smoke.
  • No Wax or Mess: incense has ashes, candles have wax, the reed diffuser has neither.
  • No Aerosols: unlike sprayed scents, the reed diffusers does not have any added chemicals.
  • No Electric Power: you can place a reed diffuser anywhere without having rely on an outlet or change batteries.

LED Light Therapy for Wrinkles, Fine Lines, Acne and More!

LED Light Therapy, in different wavelength colors, has been used to treat numerous skin issues, including acne, collagen stimulation, and wound healing. The skin has the ability to absorb infrared light, using the light as an energy source to stimulate cellular regeneration.

Different color LED light penetrates the skin at different depths, thereby providing different results based on the color light being emitted. LED light has been found to produce results with regular use over a period of time, usually 8-12 weeks. This is a non-invasive treatment with virtually no down time, making it an easier sell to your clients who are looking for results.

Blue LED light penetrates 5 mm and can be used to kill acne-causing bacteria, clear comedones, calm inflammation and redness, control sebum production, promote protein synthesis, stimulate blood and lymphatic circulation in the dermal and epidermal. This is a great add-on treatment to your Teen or Acne Facials!

Red LED light penetrates 8-10 mm and can be used for aging or mature skin to stimulate fiberblast activity, increase collagen production, rejuvenates skin tissue, smooth skin texture, improve skin tone, accelerate blood circulation. Anti-wrinkle treatments? I'm in! :) LED Light Therapy is great for stimulating collagen production, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.

Green LED light penetrates 2-5 mm and can be used to reduce hyperpigmentation, calm the skin after a chemical peel or microdermabrasion treatment and help repair skin damage. This is a perfect finish to some of the more abrasive facial treatments you may offer. 

Additionally, yellow or amber LED light is used for scar reduction and wound healing. The yellow light triggers the repair mechanism of damaged cells. It has detoxifying and purifying properties, and it improves lymphatic function. Yellow LED light therapy can be specially added to many treatments as determined during your skin inspection.

Pure Spa Direct offers a range of LED Light Therapy units, from large, stand-alone units, to small hand-held units. LED Light Therapy is quickly growing as a popular treatment within the beauty industry. Check out the units we offer today, and start showing your clients results!

There is a beauty checklist your salon clients usually hit before a vacation or back to school.

1) Manicure / Pedicure
2) Hair cut / color
3) Wax
4) TAN

Yet, I have been soooo disappointed with my spray tan experiences at the salons and spas I visited all over Long Island.  The techs were friendly - but my tans were weak.  All my spray tans have been barely brown and pretty much washed away after my first warm shower.  VERY FRUSTRATING - especially since I suffered through 10 hours of wearing their "organic tanning mist" that felt like molasses painted to my skin - just to see 99% of the color wash down the shower drain the first day!  What I really want from a spray tan is darkness, beauty and longevity - I really don't care about it's organic details (but I know many clients do)!

Moroccan Mineral Mist is THICK - It can Only
Be Atomized Through HVLP
I decided to go ahead and tan here in the training room at our offices. Now - I love our all of our sunless tanning mists - but I rarely tan here because that means one of my co-workers would need to spray me while I stood exposed in skimpy bikini disposables - and I really like them all too much to put them though that. My husband offered to come in and spray tan me, but asked that I spray tan him first. Deal!!

It has been a very long time since I sprayed our solutions.  He picked Moroccan Mineral Tanning Mist.  He handed me the tanning solution cup filled with about 4 ounces of the solution and I gasped - it was thick like PUDDING!  I remembered it was thick - but this was crazy!  I doubted it would even spray!!  I screwed the solution cup onto the sprayer and fired up the Apollo HVLP unit and began to see the most beautiful color coating his skin.  What I LOVE so much about Moroccan is that the transfer efficiency of this mist to skin is SUPERB. All these other airbrush tanners spray watery mist that flies ALL OVER the room while a minuscule amount of mist actually coats the skin - that's why most other spray tans are weak in color and last 1-3 days. But with Moroccan Mineral Mist, it was like direct mist to skin contact, giving a concentrated delivery of product to skin.  The ingredients grab the skin and dry down to a beautiful satin finish within a few minutes!  After two light coats over his body he was as brown a coffee bean!  He looked great!  I immediately went and refilled the solution cup for my tan -- Moroccan Mineral for me too!   We both showered after 8 hours.  We showered again the next morning... so 2 showers within 12 of tanning - and we are both coconut shell brown!!!  It is so satisfying to have such a dark tan!  Every salon and spa should offer a formula of this caliber - for clients that want a seriously dark tan with staying power - Moroccan Mineral is it.  My husband's showers are scalding hot - and he still has super dark color!!  There was virtually no color change from pre -shower to post shower which is very unusual - Moroccan Mineral is a superb tanning mist!

And it is also paraben free, and chocked full of anti-oxidants and anti-aging ingredients that help keep skin hydrated and looking spectacular.

Why it's different:
• Formulated as a "Rich and thick Airbrush tanning concentrate" - this product goes on STRONG and       LASTS LONG!
  Many other tanning mists out there are thin and runny - they spray on like a smoke machine!  This is a controlled, concentrated mist that hits the skin with exceptional efficiency - BUT you must use a true HVLP unit to spray it!
Moroccan Mist Contains The Same
Anti-oxidants and Anti-Aging Ingredients
As $$$$ Prestige Skin Care Brands
• Created with more “natural ingredients” and preservatives for ingredients conscious consumers.
• Gives clients a natural looking deep dark tan. It creates the appearance of a deep, medium skin tone - (the one you wish you were born with).
• Dries down quickly leaving skin feeling comfortably soft (not sticky).
• Moisture based formula helps curb the dryness and dehydration typically caused by most sunless tanning products.

Key ingredients :
• Aloe Vera
• Moroccan Argan Oil
• Grape Seed Oil
• Hyaluronic Acid

Hair Loss in Women: Time to Embrace and Solve This Devastating Issue

Female hair thinning and hair loss is a topic that is very near and dear to my heart, yet is still considered by many to be too shameful and taboo to talk about.  As a culture, we all too often view womanhood as defined by how a woman chooses to wear her hair, whether it be long, medium, short or shaved.  All of those previously mentioned styles are a choice, however, when a woman is robbed of her hair due to a multitude of factors, including stress, genetics or illness, the emotional toll can be devastating.  

How does this pertain to you, a licensed professional in the beauty industry?  You can take this issue from being taboo to being embraced and resolved by helping your clients address it, no pun intended, head-on.  I personally have been experiencing hair thinning and hair loss around my crown and at my front side part since I was 24.  The issue was not addressed until, one day, my hair stylist asked me how I styled my hair.  From there the conversation expanded to him acknowledging the areas of thinning hair and offering suggestions about how I should wear my hair back, what brushes to use, etc.

You can take it a step further for your salon and spa clients by offering services that are specifically designed to stimulate the scalp and promote hair growth.  Please see below for some products that have been shown to help and prevent Hair Thinning and Baldness.

1. Boar Bristle Brushes
  • A common cause of hair thinning and hair loss is sebum buildup on the scalp which clogs the follicles and prevents new, strong hair from growing in.  Boar Bristles are excellent because they stimulate the scalp  and evenly distribute the natural scalp sebum without damaging the hair shaft.
  • These brushes are an easy-sell retail item for all of your clients, especially those with thinning and/or balding hair.  You can also use this brush during the treatment to demonstrate to your client how invigorating yet gentle it is.
2.  Olive Oil
  • Naturally anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, this antioxidant is best for your clients whose hair is thinning due to chemical treatments and processes, such as coloring, highlighting, perming and straightening.
  • This can be used on its own during a scalp massage, or in conjunction with essential oils.
  • Jojoba Oil is not actually an oil, but rather, a wax ester.  This is important because it mimics sebum (human skin oil) and has been shown to trick our skin into not producing excess sebum.  
  • Most importantly, jojoba oil disintegrates crusted sebum buildup on the scalp, which clogs follicles and causes hair loss.
  • The ingredient is the perfect carrier oil.  You can use this during scalp massages and scalp kneading, plus you can retail it for your clients to use at home.
  • This essential oil has been used to treat skin problems since Ancient Rome and it still is shown to work today.  Studies show that Rosemary Oil stimulates blood flow to the scalp, thus invogorating hair follicles and encouraging hair growth.  
  • This oil has also been shown to treat an assortment of scalp issues, including dandruff, itching and flaking.
  • The best way to apply this product is to mix with a carrier oil, such as Jojoba Oil, Grapeseed Oil, or Olive Oil and massage into your client's scalp.
While female hair loss will never be completely eradicated, by offering services that target these issues, you can help you clients on a physical and emotional level, all while securing their long-term patronage.

The Future of Sun Protection NOW: Amp Up Protection with Anti-Oxidants

"Antioxidants complement sunscreens
to provide the ultimate UVA/UVB protection"
Earlier this week, I was flipping through a beauty industry magazine, and a statement made by a dermatologist caught my eye. According to Dermatologist Alicia Barba, MD, "The easiest way to prevent skin cancer is to use an antioxidant prior to applying an SPF of 30 or higher. Antioxidants complement sunscreens to provide the ultimate UVA/UVB protection, while also correcting accelerated signs of aging."

For all that we hear about applying SPF as part of your daily skin regimen, I had never heard of the combination antioxidant/SPF prior to reading this. Maybe I am out of the loop and a little behind on this nugget of knowledge, but, needless to say, I was intrigued. Working within the beauty industry,concerns about sun damage is the source of daily conversation, so whenever I hear anyone mention the magic letters "SPF," my proverbial ears perk up and I take notice.

I did some digging after reading the statement from Dr. Barba, and I came across a news release from the American Academy of Dermatology dated August 4, 2011. In it, Dr. Steven Q. Wang, Director of Dermatologic Surgery and Dermatology at Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in NJ, discusses the use of antioxidants in conjunction with SPF. According to Dr. Wang, "Theoretically, supplementing sunscreens with antioxidants could boost the body’s natural defense against the formation of UVA-induced free radicals; therefore serving as a second layer of protection against UV radiation that passes through the first layer of UV protection.The American Academy of Dermatology goes on to note that antioxidants become unstable when added to sunscreens, and it is difficult to determine the final concentration of antioxidants in each product.

What does this mean for skin-care professionals? Sunscreens with added antioxidants may mean the future of sun protection, but skin care professionals are in an excellent position to begin recommending their clients take advantage of this "second layer of protection" against UV and free radical damage now.

Many common ingredients found in your kitchen are rich in anti-oxidants:
Blueberries, Strawberries, Tomatoes, Olives, Grapes, Pomegranate, Avocado, even Chocolate!

When discussing skin care regimen with your clients, recommending a good moisturizer (both for the face AND body) which contains anti-oxidants is a good place to start to amp up UV protection. Discussing the potential benefits of applying an anti-oxidant-rich moisturizer before applying daily SPF, and having a good anti-oxidant moisturizer as a retail product in your practice is a great way to boost your retail sales while educating your clients about the importance of UV protection.
Everyone should apply suncreen with an SPF of 30 or higher daily.

Pure Spa Direct offers many moisturizers with anti-oxidants you can offer your clients. Take a look at some of our favorites below:

Citrus Summer Pedicures!

I can't help but talk about the tropical smells and flavors of the summer.  This week I smelled the Lemongrass Pedicure Soak Salt and it was amazing.  This pedicure soak salt is enriched with Dead Sea salt to help detoxify and reminerlize.  The soak also contains Triclosan, which helps control and inhibits bacteria growth.  It helps prevent the spread of germs and odors.  Lemongrass contains beta carotene, an antioxidant which has been found to be useful in healthy cell and tissue growth in the body.  According to the National Library of Medicine, it is also reported to have analgesic properties, which help reduce pain from inflammation of muscles, joints and tendons. So besides the aromatic offering of a tropical bliss, it also offers germ fighting and pain-reducing benefits for all of your clients.  It's summertime, so include more tropical and citrus scents in your services.  Check out Pure Spa Direct for some of our other items available for your summertime services!

Warm Fingers are Happy Fingers!

Few things make me more uncomfortable than being cold. Most spas and salons pay careful attention to this detail with warming blanks in treatments, checking the water temperature before a hair rinse, etc.  Somehow though, the warm comfort idea escapes many manicurists.  Manicure dishes ofen have cool water in them, lotions are not often warmed, acetone and solvents evaporate and make the skin cold too.  Brrrrrrrrrhhhhh!!!

There is a simple solution though... for UNDER $3!!! The Deluxe Warming Manicure Bowl by DL Pro is soooooo simple, but soooooo effective!  Specially designed for warming water, lotion, cuticle oil or acetone. The bowl consists of two parts, the outer container and the inner manicure bowl. The outer container is filled with hot water then locked into place to prevent leaking. Heat from the hot water warms up the contents of the inner bowl --water, lotion, oil or acetone -- anything that is in the well of the inner manicure bowl.  

Soooooo Nice!!! Ergonomic comfort design contours to the hand. Measures: 4-1/4"L x 3-1/4"W x 2"Deep.

Pretty neat, eh?  Make your clients happier for less than $3.  Order a Deluxe Warming Manicure Bowl by DL Pro for every manicure station today!

While you here, might as well check out a previous blog I wrote on electric manicure lotion warmers too:

Body Drench Moisturizers: A Sweet Treat for Light Summer Moisture

I have so many clients, especially tanning salons, who SWEAR by the Body Drench moisturizers. Having never used Body Drench products, I did not really understand the appeal. Recently, however, Pure Spa Direct added the new Body Drench Fruity Treats scents for summer, and I finally decided to take the plunge and try one.

WOW was I surprised! While it is nowhere near as thick and creamy as the body butters I usually lean towards, the Body Drench Island Coconut Lime has made it to my regular rotation! It is so much lighter than a body butter, making it the perfect summer moisturizer. This moisturizer smells great too - pairing classic summer coconut with citrus lime gives this moisturizer a fun twist on a classic! 

With the heat wave that has been rolling across the US for the past few weeks, I am sure I am not the only one who dreads applying moisturizer. The Body Drench moisturizers, though, are light, easily absorbed, and do not leave behind a greasy film - all of which, in my book, are major requirements for summer moisturizer application! I doubt it would hold up to my crocodile legs in the winter, but for summertime, whenever the temperatures are soaring to 98+ degrees, my skin will still feel refreshed.

According to Body Drench, their moisturizers are inspired by healthy, smooth skin, and their exclusive blend of botanicals and moisturizers will have skin looking and feeling its best. Since Body Drench moisturizers are mineral-oil free, they are a great retail item for spray tanning clients! If your clients are looking for variety, the Body Drench line will provide some great retail options to increase your profits for the year.

Ingredient of the Month: Grapefruit!

Now that a heat wave has overtaken the country during the already sweltering months of June and July, your clients are going to be walking through your doors looking for a refreshing and rejuvenating experience.  Incorporating cucumbers into treatments is always popular, however, why not citrus things up a bit and add Grapefruits to your treatment menu?

The cliche that always seems to come to mind with this particular fruit  is the 'Grapefruit Diet.'  Aside from being great for weight loss, this scrumptious citrus is also jam-packed with the antioxidants, such as Vitamin C and Lycopene.   What does this mean for your clients?  Whether they are getting a scalp massage, mani/pedi or facial, they will be receiving some major antioxidant and skin-renewing benefits.

Here are just a few of the Grapefruit products that we carry:

  1. Essential Oil - Perfect as an add on or for room fragrance.
  2. Body Scrubs - Great for pedicures, manicures and full body treatments
  3. Facial Paraffin - Must-have treatment for congested and oily skin.
  4. Body Paraffin - Stimulating, yet soothing moisture treatment.
  5. Lotion - Great for retail after treatment completion.
  6. Body Butter - Perfect for massage therapists looking to offer grapefruit massages.
  7. Shower Gel - Another fabulous retail item
  8. Hand Soap - Invigorate your clients, even in the rest room!

**Insider's Tip** Have grapefruit slices cut up and ready to go in your fridge.  When offering clients a glass of water, feel free to place a wedge on the rim for your clients to enjoy and/or spritz into their drink.
