June Jacobs Hydrating Masque Review – Age Defying

In my 40’s, my skin has taken on multiple personalities. One day I am dripping oil, another it is dry, flaky and tight. I am always trying to find a product that can bring back the balance to my super sensitive skin without a breakout.

Packed with Potent
Anti-Oxidant & Moisture Rich
Ingredients to HUG skin.

Lately I have been using June Jacob’s Intensive Age Defying Hydrating Masque as a rescue treatment to help balance my skin beautifully.

So what makes this mask so special? Well it combines potent anti-oxidants like white, red and green tea extracts, goji berry, pomegranate and grapeseed to to neutralize free radicals and protect skin from environmental toxins that cause pre-mature aging..

What else sets this miracle mask apart?

Sterocare™ – A botanical complex composed of red clover extract and lecithin designed to improve the
thickness of the skin by compensating for the deprivation of estrogen as a result of menopause.

Red Clover Extract – Derived from the plant grown wild in Europe and North America, it is rich in isoflavones – biochanin, daidzein, formononetin and genistein, which protect by stimulating the production of skin9s structural components increasing firmness and elasticity.

Lecithin – Derived from a combination of naturally occurring phospholipids, found in wheat germ, grains and soybeans, it acts as a humectant to maintain the water content of the skin and attract moisture to the skin, helping to facilitate cell growth by lessening healing time and minimizing trans-epidermal water loss.

Kombuchka™ – I LOVE to drink Kombuchka! It is derived from the fermentation of sweet black tea, it is rich in organic acids and vitamin B, it improves overall skin quality and enhances skin radiance and color by restraining the “glycation” reaction allowing the skin to produce and use anti-oxidants.

Clients will LOVE
The way their skin
Looks & feels.

Dermolectine™ – A glycoprotein of plant origin with remarkable biological, “growth factor-like” properties. It stimulates fibroblasts providing a structural framework for elastin and collagen tissue to smooth wrinkles and help fight cutaneous aging.

Konjac Mannan – Also known as glucomannan, derived from the ground root of the tree which grows in southeast Africa and Asia, it acts as a humectant to maintain the water content of the skin and attract moisture to the skin creating volume in the skin9s appearance.

Sweet Almond Oil – Derived from almonds, it is rich in fatty acids, oleic and linoleic and vitamins A and E helping to soften and moisturize skin improving overall hydration.

This is an outstanding mask for ALL year treatment. It is available in professional size for esthetician back bar treatment and retail size, so clients can continue radiant looking skin at home.

Create your own Spa Treatments with Spa Pantry!

A little experimentation will always help in the Spa industry. Mixing and matching certain butters, creams and oils will be the craze at your spa…if you get it right. For instance, something as basic as mixing Spa Pantry’s Whipped Cocoa butter and Body Concepts Aloe Vera will give you a creation that you can use as part of your services!

By mixing these two items you get a great moisturizer with so many benefits.
Aloe Vera:
  • contains antioxidants vitamins A, C and E which calms the skin from irritation an inflammation
  • helps with dermatitis or psoriasis
  • it helps with wound healing
Mixed with the cocoa butter, you will have a fast-absorbing mixture that retains body moisture and softens the skin. The reason for this is that cocoa butter melts at body temperature, so the moment of application is the moment the skin will absorb the product. Cocoa butter leaves a protective barrier that will help protect the skin from the harm of everyday life.
You can even use this product as part of your massage services. Research has indicated that massaging the skin with cocoa butter can help boost the immune system and relieve stress. I wouldn’t mind getting a massage with this lotion. Along with all of the topical benefits of mixing these to items together is the benefit of using it for aromatherapy, the sweet smelling aroma will definitely add to the massage experience.
Be bold and experiment, Cocoa Butter and Aloe Vera are just two items you can experiment with. Visit Pure Spa Direct to see what other items we have for you to use for your secret recipe.

What is Halotherapy?

Halotherapy, also known as dry Salt Therapy is a holistic approach that mimics the microclimate of a salt cave. Dry salt air is dispersed into an enclosed environment (room, bed, booth, cabin) through a unique process generated by a halogenerator. This type of treatment is a safe and effective way of using salt9s natural antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and super absorbent properties to provide relief for respiratory and skin conditions.

When you heat salt, it becomes super dry and kinetically more active. This heated and dry pure sodium chloride is then crushed into micro-sized particles and dispersed into the air in an enclosed environment. When micro-particles of dry salt is inhaled into the respiratory system, it does its job by absorbing and removing allergens, toxins and foreign substances in your lungs and throughout your respiratory tract. Salt also reduces any inflammation and opens airway passages making easier to breathe.

How does it work?
Pure “dry” sodium chloride is heated and ground up in a machine called a halogenerator. The micro-sized crushed salt particles are then dispersed into the air in an enclosed environment (Salt Room, HALO BED, HALO BOOTH, HALO Cabin). These particles of fine salt penetrate deep within the respiratory system and work to remove mucous build up and eliminate bacteria and toxins. This unique process helps open and expand the constricted airways allowing individuals to breathe easier and more clearly. Dry Salt Therapy also provides amazing skin rejuvenating benefits when the epidermis is exposed during treatment.

What are the benefits and conditions Halotherapy treats?
Dry Salt Therapy has many positive effects on our respiratory, skin and immune systems. It reduces bronchial inflammation, thins and removes mucus from the lungs, as well as improves lung capacity and functionality. It also reduces skin inflammation, improves cellular rejuvenation and decreases itching and irritated skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. Dry Salt Therapy has also been very successful in reducing stress as well as enhancing our cardiovascular system.

In addition, those who suffer from the following conditions can greatly benefit from the halotherapy.
  • Allergies, Emphysema, Asthma
  • Psoriasis
  • Bronchitis
  • Pneumonia
  • Bronchial Infections
  • Rhinitis
  • Chronic ENT illnesses
  • Sinus Infections
  • Cold/Flu, Sinusitis, Cystic Fibrosis
  • Smoker9s Cough
  • Dermatitis
  • Snoring
  • Ear Infections
  • Stress and Fatigue
  • Eczema
  • Wheezing
