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!

Equipment Spotlight: #1 High Frequency by Equipro

When shopping for equipment, not all are made equal. If you are looking for a high frequency unit that will reliably last 15-20 years, as well as offers some of the most advanced technology on the market, look no further than the Equipro Infraderm.

The primary action of the High Frequency Machine is thermal, or heat-producing, because of the rapid oscillation of the frequency there are no muscular contractions. The physiological effects are either stimulating or soothing, depending on the method of application. All treatments given with high-frequency should be started with a mild current and gradually increased to the required strength. The length of the treatment depends upon the condition to be treated. For general facial treatment, approximately three to five minutes should be allowed.

Benefits of High Frequency

  • Stimulates circulation of the blood.
  • Increases glandular activity
  • Aids in the elimination of toxins and absorption of nutrients to the cell.
  • Increases metabolism.
  • Germicidal action occurs during use (Direct Method Only)
  • Generates heat inside the tissues.
  • Aids in deeper penetration of the product into the skin.

The Electrodes:

The indirect electrode is held in the client’s hand.

The mushroom-shaped electrode is used in a circular motion on the face and neck.

A) Direct Current Application: In facial treatments, the electrode is applied directly over the treatment cream or mask. The DC application will give a sedative effect, due to the generated heat in the facial tissue. Oily and acne skin will benefit from the germicidal action of high frequency.

B) Indirect Application: The client holds the electrode while the esthetician massages the area being treated. At no time is the electrode held by the esthetician. To prevent shock, the current is turned on after the client is holding the electrode firmly in their hands. The current is also turned off before the electrode is removed from the client’s hand. Indirect current has both a toning and stimulating effect on the skin. When applying high frequency to the face using the facial electrodes, movements are started on the neck and worked upward to the jaw, cheeks, chin, nose, and forehead.

Caution: The client must not come in contact with any metal objects. Clients should remove jewelry from their hands and arms. High frequency current should not be used when the client is pregnant nor clients who may have a pacemaker or who are epileptic. In using high frequency with skin lotions, never use a lotion with alcoholic content. It is possible for a spark from the high frequency electrode to ignite a product that contains alcohol such as an astringent. High frequency is a popular treatment method known for its germicidal decongesting, energizing, and stimulating action.

  • Compact model
  • Precise intensity adjustment control
  • 3 electrodes included: 1 large mushroom violet, 1 small mushroom pink, 1 indirect massage
  • Integrated holes for electrodes
  • Handle with retractable and coiled wire for better mobility
  • 2 year-warranty
  • C.S.A. approved
  • 18 watts
  • weight: 9 lbs / 4 kg
  • up to 800 kHz

Germs, Germs, Everywhere! A Quick Guide to Cleaning, Santizing, Disinfecting, and Sterilizing

Oh fall, how I love your cool nights, crisp air, and the onset of cold and flu season…. Wait, that’s not right! I HATE the onset of cold and flu season! But it is one of those things that come with the changing of seasons and cooler weather.

Obviously, cold and flu season is not the only time you should think about cleaning, sanitizing, disinfecting, and sterilizing in your spa or salon, but it is a great time to review your practices and make sure your salon or spa is protecting you, your employees, and your clients.

But wait. Cleaningsanitizingdisinfectingsterilizing… Aren’t those just fancy words that mean the same thing? If you thought that, you thought WRONG! In your business, you need to make sure you are addressing ALL of the above!

Let’s define each (according to Ultronics, a leading disinfectant manufacturer in the health and beauty industry):

Cleaning: removal of debris from the surface. An essential first step to disinfecting or sterilizing.
Sanitizing: lowering the number of microorganisms on non-living surfaces.
Disinfecting: chemical process that eliminates most microorganisms on non-living surfaces and implements.
Sterilization: a process that completely destroys all microbial life

Large surfaces, including chairs, beds, nail tables, styling stations, nail dryers, etc. should be disinfected between each client. Wiping these items down with a hospital-grade disinfectant such as Ultracare Disinfectant or Citrus II Germicidal Cleaner will help prevent the spread of germs from client to client.

Implements should be cleaned (to remove surface debris) and completely immersed in a hospital-grade disinfectant such as Barbicide for at least 10 minutes after each use.

**Don’t forget to thoroughly clean all towels, sheets, and linens between each use!**

Pure Spa Direct offers a wide variety of sanitizers, disinfectants, and sterilizers to meet all of your needs. We also have a huge selection of cleaning and janitorial supplies, and many other “Back of the House” office supply items to keep your business running smoothly.

Remember, cleaning, sanitizing, disinfecting, and sterilizing surfaces and implements in your salon or spa is required by law! If you are unsure about your state’s regulations concerning sanitization and disinfection, contact your State Board today to ensure you are compliant!
