If client comfort is a concern or if you aim to go above and beyond in every aspect for your clients, when was the last time you laid on your treatment table?

Showerless Slimming Service For Summer!

Try saying that three times fast!

Seriously (I can’t help it!), slimming treatments are always a hot menu item during the summer. I’ve spoken to a few clients who were shying away from stepping out of their normal menu due to not having a shower. Not having a shower does not mean you have to lose out on offering services – you just need to get a little creative 🙂

The #1 seller across the board for retail and use in a variety of services is the Desert Mineral Detox Body Scrub Anti-Cellulite Formula (my personal fav as well!). Simple to use, natural ingredients, effective and you don’t need a shower! If you have a spray bottle you can fill with water and some towels – there’s no reason not to have this! Be sure to have a tester container for demoing on clients – once they feel how incredibly soft and smooth their skin feels immediately after using it, they will be running to the register and telling all of their friends.

Remineralizing Body Masque – Slimming and Toning – another awesome one that you can use a spray bottle and towels to clean up!

Meishida Far Infrared Slenderizing Sauna Blanket – hot ticket item at spas across the world who offer slimming services!

With a little creativity and a variety of products, you can slim your clients and boost your profits!

How to Boost Your First Impression for Under $115!

One of my favorite quotes of all times is from Will Rogers: “You will never get a second chance to make a first impression.”

Wow – how powerful! This is so true in our industry – an industry based around aesthetics. What is the first impression your clients get when they walk in your room? Is it cozy, comfortable, cluttered, minimalistic, stressful? You will never get those first few moments back, so it is important to really deliver the WOW factor.

How do you deliver the WOW factor, you ask? As they say, the devil is in the details. Small touches here and there will go a long way – and they don’t have to break the bank, either!

One of my favorite ways to up the WOW factor is to display things in a unique, yet aesthetic manner. Pure Spa Direct just added new Apothecary Jars that can help you do just that! Show off your favorite salts, herbs, or even muds! These adorable jars are available in a variety of sizes, perfect for keeping various products on display.

Do you make your own body scrubs or salts for your clients? These are the ideal jars to package them in for sale, as well! With their own petite scoop that conveniently attaches to the side of the jar, and the cork-style caps, these jars look like they came straight from the apothecary! Add a simple ribbon with a tag featuring your logo and information about the product, and you have a winning retail product on our hands!

What are your favorite ways to use apothecary jars?
