Cool Wax: The No Temp Wax for Heat-Sensitive Clients

When it comes to waxing, the fact of the matter is that most people do not like having a warm/hot, sticky substance applied to their bodies. For Bikini and Brazilian waxing especially, many women (and men!) avoid the salon altogether because they cannot endure even the notion of hot depilatory wax on their sensitive bits.




A great option to have available for your more squeamish clients is the Cool Wax Brand. This wax requires no heating or preparation – Just open up and go! In addition, the main ingredient is sugar, so Cool Wax is both Rosin and Honey free. This product comes in 4 yummy scents, including Cucumber, Vanilla, Lavender and Mandarin, all of which can have soothing properties through aromatherapy.

Lastly, don’t forget about Pre- and Post-Depilatory products, including Cool Clean and Cool Soothe. Cool Clean helps prepare your clients skin and Cool Soothe helps ease any redness or discomfort after the service.

Add the Cool Wax products to your Depilatory Supply today so as to reach more client and, therefore, Increase Profits!

**Insiders Tip** This wax is best for coarse and thick hair.

What’s the BZZZZZ On Honey?

There has been a growing movement lately where the focus has been a ‘Return to Nature.’ Spas, salons and wellness centers alike are going the extra mile for their clients by creating custom or all-natural treatments. An up-and-coming product in the spa industry, that can also be found in your kitchen, is Honey!

Despite being recently introduced to the beauty industry, honey‘s origins can be traced back more than 4,000 years ago to Ancient Sumeria, where it was used to treat wounds due to its anti-fungal, antimicrobial and antibacterial agents. . The Queen of Egypt would apply honey all over her body to help moisturize and hydrate her skin. Thousands of years later, the benefits still hold true and your clients can experience the same.
Here are just a few of the many benefits of Honey:

  • Antimicrobial
  • Anti-fungal
  • Antibacterial
  • Natural Humectant – Attracts and Retains Moisture
  • Plumps up skin
  • Reduces Fine line and Wrinkles
  • Help protects skin from UV Rays
  • Gentle enough for sensitive skin
Honey can be used in services for the entire body, ranging from facials and body treatments, to manicure, pedicures and hair masks. Apply honey directly to the skin and let sit for 15-20 minutes so that the nutrients and vitamins can be absorbed. Another great option is to combine Honey with Fine Sea Salts or Sugar to create an ultra-hydrating scrub.
Have you ever used honey in your spa or salon? What has you experience with the product been?

You Don’t Need a Shower to Offer Body Wraps!

Today, I was speaking to a client who wants to offer body wrap services for detox but does not have access to a shower. While we have some really great mud options for body wraps, mud can be a pain to remove without a shower. What’s an esthetician to do if they don’t have a shower?

We have the perfect product! It is a gel base, making it easy to remove with wet towels (no scrubbing the client’s tush with this product!), with some great hydrating and detoxifying ingredients! The Lotus Touch Seaweed Wrap Gel is one of our best-selling wrap products!

This ready-to-use gel has sea kelp for metabolic stimulation and nutrient rich Klamath blue-green algae to hydrate and detoxify. The active moisturizer base includes willow bark extract, aloe vera oil, Vitamin E, rosehip seed oil, lavender, and a touch of fragrance to lift the spirits. This special combination of ingredients gives a pleasant scent for you and your clients. Provides excellent results with or without a compression wrap and can be easily removed with warm, moist towels.

Recommended Use: Can be used in body or facial services. (Contains seaweed, so be sure to ask clients if they are allergic to iodine or seafood before initial use.)

Spa Know-How: How to Clean your Hot Towel Cabi

As far as equipment goes, your hot towel cabi probably gets some of the highest mileage in your spa. Hot towels are great for use in a wide variety of treatments, and are probably top of the list when it comes to the “Ahhhh factor.” But what is the best way to keep your hot towel cabinet clean and ready for use?

Daily Cleaning
  • First, always empty the hot towel cabi and the drip tray each and every night. Hot towel cabi’s are like a playground for mold: warm, dark, and damp. At the end of each day, turn the hot towel cabi off, unplug it, and empty all of the towels out of it.
  • Using a clean towel, wipe down all surfaces. Remove the rack (if present) and thoroughly wipe it down.
  • Be sure to clean the rubber gaskets around the opening (on both the cabi side, and around the door)! Pull it forward and gently clean behind it, as well as in the cracks and crevices. You never know what might be lurking in there!
  • If your cabi has one, pull out the drip tray, empty it, clean it thoroughly with soap and water, and make sure it is completely dry before replacing it. Some spas and salons like to prop the tray in front of the cabi as an indicator that the cabi has been cleaned. This is a great technique to ensure the tray is completely dry before replacing it.
  • Finally, wipe down the outside of the cabi, and disinfect all surfaces. It is a good practice to leave the cabi door open at night, to allow the cabi to air out, and again to ensure it completely dries.

By maintaining your hot towel cabi, you will be able to offer your clients hot towels in so many of your treatments, and it will certainly help keep your “Ahhh factor” rating high with your clients!

June Jacob’s Ultra-Light Citrus Moisturizer – Perfect for Oily Skin Facials!

Of all the steps in my daily facial routine, I hate applying moisturizer the most. I have oily skin, and moisturizers always felt heavy and greasy on me. For years, I skipped this vital step, but now as I quickly approach 30, I know I need to moisturize more than ever.

I can’t be the only one who doesn’t like to apply moisturizer to my face! Some of your clients have oily skin too, and I bet they cringe a little inside when you let them know you are going to moisturize their face. They may even just stare blankly at you and absent-mindedly nod while you instruct them on how important it is to keep your face well moisturized. Then, while they are just staring off into space, you can blow their minds (and snap them back into reality!) by applying June Jacob’s Ultra-Light Citrus Moisturizer.
This hydrating lotion is so light and airy, it absorbs almost immediately, and leaves behind fresh, moisturized skin, instead of a greasy mess. The light citrus scent is good enough to eat (although I don’t recommend doing so – I imagine it doesn’t taste nearly as good as it smells!). Best of all, my skin stays soft and smooth all day, without feeling heavy, clogged, or greasy!

Like most of the June Jacobs Spa Collection, this moisturizer features a special blend of white, green, and red teas, plus pomegranate, goji berry, and grapeseed extract to help neutralize free radicals and combat signs of premature aging. The formula is paraben and preservative-free, and features the moisturizing powerhouse Hyaluraonic Acid.
Your oily-faced clients will be so grateful for your finding a usable moisturizer for them they will never see another esthetician for a facial again! Aside from using it in your oily-skin facials, offer it as a retail product for your clients to purchase. Once they feel the fluffy softness and almost immediate absorption, they won’t want to use any other moisturizer!
