OMG My Steamer Jar Broke! Read on for Important Info for ALL Estheticians

I can’t even tell you how many clients we speak with each month who are in a panic because they went to move their steamer, banged it against the wall, and the jar shattered. Or they were trying to fill it and dropped the jar. Or they were cleaning their steamer, and noticed their jar was cracked.

What’s an esthetician to do?

Not to worry! Pure Spa Direct has access to lots of replacement jars. If you didn’t purchase your steamer directly from us, we can’t guarantee it will fit, but by requesting measurements, we can get a pretty good idea of which jar will work for you.

But…but…my jar is in a million pieces on my floor! How am I supposed to measure it for you to look into a replacement? Well, my pretties, I have just the right instructions for measuring for a steamer jar that will fit for you!

Step 1: To find out the width of the jar you need, measure the inside diameter of the rubber gasket. This is the width measurement of the jar!

Step 2: To find the height of the jar, measure the heating element, and allow for 1 more inch below the heating element.

That’s it. Not so scary, right? So next time you are in a bind with a broken jar, just give Pure Spa Direct a ring – we would be more than happy to help you out!

A steamer is one of the top tools an esthetician uses to offer fantastic treatments. When was the last time you updated your steamer? We have a huge selection of steamers to fit all budgets – some that come with acrylic jars, rather than glass – you can avoid the broken jar problem altogether!

Shave in Style with The Peanut

Grooming is one of the many activities that men try to avoid on a daily basis, as it’s time consuming and it certainly be difficult to master the art of shaving. I’m sure you see male clients regularly at your salon who are in need of a quick shave, and they might even ask you tips on products and shaving tools to keep up their grooming at home. If you’re in need of a new grooming product for men, I highly recommend The Peanut by Wahl. Introduced in 2007, its funky peanut design and small size gives makes it a favorite among men! It’s also very small, lightweight and extremely portable making it easy to use on your clients. I find the peanut shaped design to be clever (and cute!), and Wahl is most certainly a reputable brand for grooming products. We have different variations to choose from:


The Wahl Peanut is the original clipper of this style that first came out. It weighs less than 4 oz. and is less than 4″ long! It has the power and performance of a full-size clipper with the versatility of a heavy-duty trimmer, but is tinier than most. It also comes with four snap-on combs!








The Peanut also has a cordless version you can retail to your busier clients who are always on the go! Great for travelling, this portable battery-operated clipper has 45 minutes of cutting time per battery.




The Peanut also comes in black for your more stylish male clients who want a different look than the original! View all of our different Peanut Clippers here!

Skin Care Reactions; What is ‘allergic’ dermatitis?’

People are often given a diagnosis of ‘contact dermatitis’, but what exactly is that? What are the implications

“True contact allergic dermatitis
is caused by particular substances”

and why does it happen? First, let’s get some definitions straight. When we talk of dermatitis, it should be understood that the term is synonymous with eczema. So they are really interchangeable. Dermatitis equals eczema.

Now, more importantly, what are the types and causes of contact dermatitis? The condition is broadly divided into two categories, irritant and allergic. So we speak of contact irritant dermatitis and contact allergic dermatitis. Why is this important? Because it tells us about the possible causes and ways to avoid the condition.
Basically, contact irritant dermatitis is caused by chemicals or substances that will irritate skin in any person. An example would be a retinoid drug, such as Retin A. While the drug is very useful for many reasons, if used too much or too quickly, it will cause irritation in almost any individual. So a person may think ‘I’m allergic to Retin A’ when in reality there is no allergy but just irritation which can be overcome. So what is ‘allergic’ dermatitis?’

True contact allergic dermatitis is caused by particular substances that cause a person to launch an immune reaction to the substance. An example would be the topical antibiotic neomycin. Many people would typically apply this drug to various cuts, scrapes or injuries, thinking they will prevent an infection. Often, however, days or weeks later they will develop itching and rash at the site, and have become truly allergic to the drug neomycin. In fact, neomycin is one of the most common topical sensitizing drugs in North America. A typical comment by the patient might be ‘but I’ve used this many times before!’ and that is just the point. Allergic dermatitis can not occur unless the skin had been exposed prior, it was over several applications that the allergy was being created!

So there you have it, two different types of contact dermatitis that can look exactly the same, but with entirely different causes!

Exfoliation
2) Infusion:
OxyGeneo™ deeply cleans the skin while creating a chemical reaction between the patented Capsugen™ capsule and OxyGeneo™ nutrient-rich gels, plus any of your optional skincare serums. This chemical reaction produces countless CO2-rich bubbles which gently burst on the skin’s surface, while essential nutrients and antioxidants are infused deeply into the skin. Through ultrasound, skin permeability is increased for maximum infusion of essential nutrients.
Infusion
3) Oxygenation:
OxyGeneo™ treatments produce a CO2-rich environment on the skin’s surface, creating a physiological response, sending oxygen-rich blood to the treated area.This natural oxygenation results in an increase of capillary blood flow and metabolism of essential skin nutrients in the skin.

For more details on this unit, check out the video below!
