The Best Mask for Dry Skin!

Have you ever used a freeze-dry collagen mask? Regular use of Collagen Fiber Masks helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles, calm and soothe irritation, restore skin vitality, and leave the skin feel supple, softer, and younger.

Collagen Fiber Face Mask with Hyaluronic Acid is specially formulated to help dry, dehydrated, and mature skin conditions and for sensitive skin that is easily irritated.

Collagen is hydrating and anti-irritant. Hyaluronic Acid occurs naturally in the dermis, has excellent water-binding capabilities. Once the liquid activator is applied to the mask, it takes on the form of transparent second skin. The outstanding hydration properties of Collagen Fiber Masks are especially beneficial for dry, sensitive, irritation-prone, and aging skin. Incorporating Collagen Fiber Masks into facial treatments can improve the absorption of additional active ingredients and clients will notice a visible improvement in their skin’s appearance.

How does it work?

  1. Cleanse and tone face thoroughly.
  2. Place the Mask over the face and mark the nose and chin position. (Diagram A)
  3. Make an inverted “T” cut at the nose position.
  4. Cut a triangular piece from below the chin position (for Step 8).
  5. Fill a 2-oz squeezable bottle with Phyto Mask Activator.
  6. Apply an ampoule or a serum according to skin condition.
  7. Position the trimmed Mask on both sides of the face. Start slowly applying the Phyto Mask Activator to one side of the face while press lightly to adjust for a comfortable position. Repeat on the other side of the face.
  8. Cover the nose area with the triangular cut piece (from Step 4).
  9. Use the Phyto Mask Activator prepared in Step 5 to moisten the Mask. (Diagram C)
  10. Use a sponge or esthetic wipe to prevent the Activator from dripping off. Press lightly to ensure a close fit and smooth out bubbles.
  11. Repeat Steps 9 & 10 until the Mask is saturated with Phyto Activator.
  12. Activate the Mask by gently pressing with fingertips to release and mobilize active ingredients. In Diagram D, wet cotton pads are applied over the eyelids to ensure the mask has contact with the eyelid. Alternatively, one could put a cotton pad (saturated with distilled water) on the eyes first, before applying the mask. This is for people with very sensitive eyes. (Diagram D)
  13. Leave on for 20-30 minutes.
  14. Remove the Mask by rolling it down from the hairline.
Don’t forget the Phyto Mask Activator!
It’s pH balanced, is a refreshing and soothing aqueous formula that hydrates, nourishes, and tones the skin.

Tips for Retail Success

We are barely past Halloween, and yet the time has officially come for all spas, salons, wellness centers and medi-spas to stock up on the holiday retail. While retail products should be an integral part of your business plan year round, the holidays provide an additional impetus for your clients to browse, shop and buy.

We always advise our clients to retail, but the question is How? How do you transition from having products on display to constantly needing restock your shelves? Well, here is a handy little guide:

Tips for Retail Success:

  1. EDUCATION. Become THE source for information for all things retail by educating you staff. Hold multiple training workshops and dispense reading materials so that your employees are able to comfortably and knowledgeably explain the following for all products.
    • Purpose
    • Ingredients
    • Features
    • Benefits
    • Application Procedure
    • Potential Reactions
    • Brand History
  2. TESTERS. One is much more likely to purchase a product when he or she can touch it, smell it, taste it, etc. When you shop at stores such as Sephora or Ulta, there are samples for virtually every single product. By investing in at least 1 tester per retail item, your clients will be significantly more likely to invest themselves into the product.
  3. INCENTIVE PROGRAMS. As a Salon or Spa owner, your main focus is increasing your business profit. One of the main focuses for your employees, however, is increasing their personal income. Have your goals meet in the middle by providing incentive programs and contests for selling retail products. Just as your clients need a little push to invest in retail, your employees need motivation for selling products and boosting business. By offering bonuses or a rewards program for top sellers, you can boost sales, profits and company morale! In addition, certain manufacturers have their own rewards program in place. By selling their products, you receive samples and complimentary items. These free gifts can then be passed on to your victorious employees, at no expense to you. A total Win-Win-Win!
  4. INTEL. The easiest way to decide what products to retail is to get the information directly from the source: your clients! Train your employees to be engaging and asking key questions, including the following:
    • What hair/facial/nail products are being used at home.
    • Opinions about said products.
    • Upcoming plans and events, such as vacations, weddings, graduation etc.
    • Personal cosmetic and aesthetic concerns.

  5. AN EXPERIENCE. According to Jill Van Ausdal of The Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge, you can increase retail sales by providing an all-encompassing experience instead, rather than just providing a single treatment for your client. When the service is taken from a treatment to an experience, retail automatically becomes a part of the equation.

The team here at Pure Spa is literally chock-full of information, facts, figures, ideas and suggestions. If you need help deciding what to retail or how to retail it, give us a call any time!
