The Fresh Face of
Oxygen Facials

the noticeable affects of these fresh air facials. Results include visible plumping, toning and youthful vigor.


Though there are skeptics that debate the efficacy of oxygen facials, clients that love them, love them LOYALLY. Here in New York City, estheticians are charging upwards of $600 for signature facials with oxygen. Seeing is believing; I have seen clients before and after Oxygen facial treatments and without a doubt, their skin literally glowed like a dewy twenty year old.

Pick up any beauty magazine and you will see famous celebs, Oscar Winners and Hollywood beauties linked to these facials like a cult practice. All the media exposure has clients inquiring about this service often. A local esthetican just told me she is adding an Oxygen Facial unit to her aesthetic business due to the overwhelming demand from clients who are in the know.

NEW From CND Shellac: CND Shellac Nourishing Remover

The newest addition to the CND Shellac line is the CND Shellac Nourishing Remover, available now at Pure Spa Direct in 8 oz and 32 oz bottles.

According to CND: “Building off CND Shellac9s convenient and gentle ten minute removal process, CND Shellac Nourishing Remover, out in September 2012, will reduce removal time to eight minutes. CND Shellac Nourishing Remover is infused with macadamia and Vitamin E oils to condition nails and softly remove color.”

Gentler than acetone on the nails and skin, with added Macademia Oil and Vitamin E, CND Nourishing Remover sounds, well, nourishing! And shortening removal time from 10 minutes to 8 minutes is a great plus, too! I know 2 minutes does not sound like a lot of time, but if you do 10 removal services a day, you will save 20 minutes! How quickly the time adds up!

Will you stick with your current removal process, or check out the nourishing properties of CND Nourishing Remover?

Aromatherapy Spotlight: Frankincense

Stress and tension are major problems today. Adults are so caught up with work, family, and other obligations that often times they forget to take care of themselves. That’s where you come in!

Spas, salons, wellness centers, doctors offices, and other businesses are used as a form of self-care. Your clients are leaving their services refreshed, re-energized, and happy! But how can you help create these positive emotions and ensure they will return?

Try aromatherapy! These scents will resonate with your clients, and they will trigger a good memory!

One of the most soothing essential oils is frankincense. It actively slows down your breathing and allows you to take longer and deeper breaths. This helps you alleviate fear, anxiety, nervous tension, and stress.

Frankincense is recommended especially for dry, sensitive, or mature skin. It helps rejuvenate skin tone and prevent fine lines and wrinkles.

My favorite brand is ESS® Frankincense Pure Essential Oil

Pro tip: Diffuse in your waxing studio, medispa, or doctors office to help relax clients who may be nervous about a service or procedure.

Old School Cool: Dr. Bronner’s Multi-Use Soap

When performing aesthetic services, you go out of your way to ensure that you use the only the finest and most effective products on your clients. The goal is not only to provide an excellent service, but also immediate gratification with smoother skin, finer lines, and reduced puffiness. Unfortunately, you cannot always be there to ensure that your clients are taking care of their skin at home to the same degree that you do in your aesthetic services.

A fantastic product line to retail to your clients and help guide them towards taking care of their skin is the Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap Skin Care Line. Unlike most of the commercial brands of soaps that you clients will find in their local drug stores, all of the Dr. Bronner’s soaps are formulated with pure and organic ingredients. Plus, they are completely devoid of all of the harsh chemicals, parabens, preservatives and dyes that most products contain today.
As a personal testimonial, I am completely obsessed with Dr. Bronner’s Organic Castile Liquid Lavender Soap. I have always been on a constant quest to find the best shower gel, shampoo, soap etc. The search has been fun but it is no longer possible for me to use any other soap out there. I use the liquid lavender as a shower gel – the lather is completely luxurious – shampoo, shaving cream and even laundry detergent. The Peppermint Liquid Soap is also fantastic to use as a toothpaste!
Which types of facial and body soaps do you recommend your clients use at home?

If you have ever tried working with Bobbi pins in any capacity, you can appreciate the fact that

Updo Assistant — Pin it Good!
