Shellac Attack!- The Nail Biter Experience- Day 1 – Review by Kerri

The joke around the office is that the new CND Shellac is the best
invention since the Internet, and for us ladies it just might be!

Since the beginning of manicure history, a 14-day manicure has always
been unheard of – especially if you9re like me who has been plagued by
nail and cuticle biting their entire life! From the moment I heard
about this, I could not wait for our CND Shellac Kits to arrive. And
today, for the first time, I was “shellacked.” I’ve always been
partial to a glamorous light pink so I selected the CND Shellac
Romantique as my color of choice. I had my nails pre-manicured and my
cuticles clipped. With each coat that was applied, I became more and
more excited to see the finished product. I could not believe how fast
the UV lamp cured the nails. I am so used to waiting for my nails dry,
that I had to be reminded that it was okay to fix my hair with my
freshly painted nails, the minute after we finished! Most importantly,
my nails have stayed far away from my mouth. Even an habitual nail
biter wouldn’t want to chomp on these perfectly polished and shiny
nails. 1st day=Success!

Want A Healthier Life, Kola Is The Answer

This type of Kola is not just good for you, it is great for you. Gotu Kola is a plant that has many healing and calming effects, I’m surprised more don’t use it. In Ayurvedic Medicine, it is said to be one of the most important rejuvenating herbs. It can be used as a pure blood tonic and for skin health. Fortifying the immune system, Gotu Kola both cleanses and feeds resulting in the strengthening of the adrenal glands. Helping people who practice yoga to improve their meditation practices, this herb’s calming properties make it happen. It’s said to develop the crown chakra, the energy center at the top of the head, and balances the left and right hemispheres of the brain. If you have a medi-spa that focuses on the more natural and herbal approach to healing, this is the perfect item to purchase for your services.

The Gotu Kola Powder has chemical constituents that aids in wound healing and acts as a strong anti-inflammatory agent. It affects various stages of tissue development:
  • helps the process of replacing skin after sores or ulcers
  • synthesis of collagen
  • stimulation of hair and nail growth

The herb has been used successfully to help with inflammation of veins, varicose veins, leg cramps, swelling of the legs and heaviness and tingling in legs. Use the powder we have available at Pure Spa Direct to mix in with your solutions or creams to help your clients have better results with the issues they may be having.

SpaFinder’s 2013 Spa Tends…SNEAK PEEK!

New Year’s means champagne, resolutions, out with the old, in with the new…..and for Spa Professionals, it means SpaFinder’s Spa Trends!

SpaFinder released a Sneak Peek of their Top 10 Spa Trends for 2013. Check them out below:

Healthy Hotels – Instead of mere amenities, wellness-focused features of hotels, including fitness centers, spas, and specialized menus, will become mainstream in “wellness-everywhere” hotels.

The Mindfulness Massage – A creative blend of mindfulness and bodywork, the Mindfulness Massage incorporates breathing techniques and so-called “body scans” to bring attention to every part of the body, bringing the massage to the next level. Leave the mind-clutter behind!
Earthing – A movement promoting direct contact with the Earth’s surface to stabilize the body’s rhythms and reduce inflammation. Spas are expected to incorporate more “Earthing” into treatments and further reach into the “nature grounding” movement.
Spa-Genomics…Telomeres and Beyond – Genomic testing is showing the potential to pinpoint diseases that can be slowed by lifestyle changes. In some studies, telomeres have shown to be able to be repaired by stress-reduction, exercise, sleep, healthier lifestyles, and meditation. All of this is right up the Spa Industry’s alley – and the move to incorporate Spas into your health routine will continue!
Authentic Ayurveda and Other Ancient Revivals – More “aggressively-authentic” wellness experiences, incorporating ancient wellness traditions will be seen throughout the spa industry, with a strong focus on Ayurveda, Turkish and Roman baths, and even Russian banyas.

Color Self-Expression – Self-expression in 2013 is going to play out in COLOR – allowing self-transformation to be painted on, both easily and relatively inexpensively. Expect hair color to be IN-YOUR-FACE, colorful accessorial add-ons, such as neon lashes, and lots of nail and body art.
Inclusive Wellness – The industry is expected to continue its shift from pampering to delivering wellness to people of all ages and abilities. More and more people are looking to spas to help with the healing process, as well as increase bodily function, in both pain-relieving capacities, as well as mobility-enhancing therapies.
Label Conscious Fitness – While branded fitness has been around for decades, the fitness world is expanding rapidly, and, according to SpaFinder, “an explosion of “fitness labels” distinguishes products and programs – and serves as a shortcut for instant recognition in an oversaturated market full of similar choices…Millions chase the “insider elite,” giving the fitness world a distinct fashion world vibe where consumers shop for the latest fitness craze just as they search for the newest designer purse.”
Men: From Barbers to “Brotox” – 2013 will see more and more having “work” done, from injectables to body enhancements, as new technology allows for little to no downtime and almost no telltale scarring. Men are looking for more subtle, less obvious results, and further enhancements in this sector are allowing medspas and plastic surgeons to provide just that. Not a medspa or plastic surgeon? That’s ok – expect to expand your male menu, including waxing, threading, and other male cosmetic treatments as well.
Where the Jobs Are – The health/beauty/wellness sector is growing rapidly, and cannot find enough qualified, skilled employees to keep up. As eyes remain on health and wellness, and the public views spas as a healthy alternative to maintain a wellness-focused lifestyle, this service sector will continue to boom with new jobs and positions to fill.

That is quite a list! Pure Spa Direct is here to help you grow your business. With over 65,000 products, we have it all in one place to help you expand to keep up with growing trends! As a business owner, which of these trends to you expect to tackle in 2013?
