Create a Little Tropical Paradise Right in Your Treatment Room with Banana Masks!

I love finding interesting and natural ingredients to incorporate into my skin care regimen and to share with my clients, and I have found another to share with you today! Pure Spa Direct recently added a new BANANA mask, and when I saw it, I just HAD to try it!

Bananas are great for our skin for the same reason they are great for our bodies – they are packed full of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamins A (an antioxidant that helps prevent free radical damage and the breakdown of collagen, leading to fuller, more smooth skin), B (helps maintain moisture and suppleness), E (another antioxidant that helps prevent free radical damage), and F (omega fatty acids that are emollient, water-binding and antioxidant), as well as minerals such as iron, magnesium, and zinc. And even if you eat the healthiest of diets and swallow vitamins daily, your body only allocates a certain amount of vitamins and minerals to your skin. If you are looking for an extra vitamin boost, it must be applied topically.

And that is where skin care products like this new Banana Mask comes in! Give your clients’ skin a nutrient boost, and turn a run-of-the-mill facial into a tropical adventure! Offer your clients a pina colada as they wait, relax and moisturize their skin during your facial, and they will think they escaped to paradise.

Check it out today HERE!

(I know, some of us don’t like bananas….but there are TONS of other choices!)

Spa / Salon Industry Events…

Just got back from the IECSC Trade Show in Las Vegas (saw some great new products that Pure Spa Direct will be offering soon!) and was thinking it would be good to re-post a link to Pure Spa’s Industry Events page — a calendar of events that we update monthly.

Trade Shows are a great place to see new things, meet new people and they are often in super fun locations, like Las Vegas! BTW, one of the most fun things ever… $5 Black Jack at the outdoor tables next to Harrah’s… drinks, a misting system and a rockin’ 80’s band on the stage right there — AMAZING FUN!

Retail Rules! Hot New Summer Retail for Your Salon or Spa

To be successful, experts recommend 30% – 50% of your net profit come from retail products. According to a recent spa study:

  • If a client buys 2 retail products, there’s a 60% chance they will revisit.
  • If a client buys 1 retail product, there’s a 30% chance they will revisit.
  • If a client buys 0 retail products, there’s a 10% chance they will revisit.

Are you selling that much retail? If you are not, have you thought about why that is?

Selling retail starts by offering retail products you and your team love! It is much easier to make recommendations and suggest clients enhance their services with you at home with products you believe in.
