Our Bodies Need Some LOVE!

At times like these we need to take care of our immune system and body too. Since it is summer and we shed our clothes and show more skin we need to also slough off dead skin cells. As well as hydrate the skin on our face and body too. One of my clients shared this recipe with me a long time ago. And I recently discovered it in my pandemic cleaning purge of some paper work etc.

I almost forgot how much I like this recipe alongside eating a bowl of oats or granola with home-made yogurt and fruit in season. To make home-made from scratch yogurt I use Belle + Bella. They have an amazing starter packet and unit to make it. It is fun and when i have leftovers (right) instead of licking the spoon I use the fresh yogurt on my face for a gentle neck and face mask.

What you will need for this hand or body recipe:

1 cup of olive oil

1/2 cup of ground up organic oats

1 tbs. vanilla

1 tablespoon of maple syrup

She stirs  in all ingredients and suggests you take some time in the tub.

Place a handful of the mix onto your body. She recommends paying close attention to rough areas like,elbows,knees, hands and feet. Allow the scrub to rest on your skin. Next she recommends rubbing with warm water and a washcloth or a loofah sponge.

Rinse well.

After you get out of the tub. Dry your skin slightly and while damp apply your favorite hand and body lotion.

Your skin will feel soft and fresh you’ll feel brand new!

 

 

Don’t make this mistake in your business.

I am so disappointed on something I see at spas and salons all over the country!

what bothers me is seeing the magazines or books 📚 sitting on tables in the waiting room.

I’m not necessarily talking about the old or tattered ones that have been read countless times but the magazines themselves. The selection for the clients or guests to read.

Massage therapy journals, assorted spa magazines,Eye Lash magazines, hair styling magazines and nail magazines… ALL for the professionals in the beauty and wellness industries. Not for the consumers eyes!

We work so hard looking for suppliers and any news or educational pieces on in our businesses. Your clients DON’T need to read these. YOU are the beauty and spa owners and the beauty PRO’S not your clients.

So do yourself a favor and your staff too. Don’t put any of your magazines, books or trade journals out for your clients to read! Keep them in your office or break room library. Please!

What’s wrong with this picture?

As beauty businesses, spas and salons we need to keep up to date with the trends. We also need to think about retailing some of them too!

Unfortunately, I see in my travels more and more non-beauty and wellness businesses carrying skincare and more!

WE are the licensed beauty professionals! Not an office supply big box store, craft or other type stores. It makes me sad when brands sell to just any type of business. We know all there is to know on makeup 💄 skincare and beyond. We know the skin in and out. We know what our clients need. We do the facials,massage and makeup services! NOT a clerk or a big box store who sells odd supplies and all things skin and beauty.

Think long and hard about your business and beauty career. Do you agree with me? Where are we headed?

To me it isn’t just about a sale. It is about building a relationship with the guests who come to us for relaxation, to feel prettier and not just about a profit!

My husband bought a good looking $299.99 office chair across from a clearance section of face masks. Feels so wrong.

While I do love ❤️ this store I wish the vendor did not sell these face masks and other skin supplies to this office supply store! I wish the store would stick to what they know best…Office and school supplies.

YOUR business needs to carry what’s hot in beauty NOT other types of stores. Our clients want to buy from us.We are the PROfessional!

Anal Bleach

Do I have your attention? I discovered a spa service and wax that is getting lots of attention.😳

At the International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa show in Las Vegas I heard as I was going down the hall to teach my class these loud happy chants. “ANAL bleach. Anal Bleach and those words along with music went on and on.” 

I snapped a pic with my iphone of one of the class staff and that is what you see in the pic. While I could not attend the class I had to share with you what I found. The name of the company: Wax Hair Removal Bar.

This is what I found on their website.

“Anal bleaching is one of the most popular skin care requests today. Be careful not to use products with harsh acids that can cause long term damage to your skin. Our intimate area skin lightening products are all safe and FDA & Health Canada approved. Remember that harsh chemicals such as Hydroquinone or Kojic Acid that can burn, irritate and even hypo-lightening the skin which is not reversable or repairable.

It is actually very common for our “sensitive areas” such as the bikini line, vaginal, underarms and anal area to discolor in both men and women. Most people find it hard to discuss this topic and that is why WAX Hair Removal Bar was born! We have zero issue talking about this topic, in fact its as natural as talking about the weather. The most common reasons for skin discoloration tend to be hormonal that may arise after pregnancy, aging, ethnicity or weight gain.

Many people think that anal bleaching or skin lighting is only for the adult industry – we are here to crush that rumor. Most of our clients are average everyday blue collar workers both male and female that are looking to enhance the appearance of their bodies and even out discolored skin tone anywhere from inner thighs to the ever so sensitive scrotum . We offer this treatment which can be done in the comfort of your own home or in our establishment without the use of harsh chemicals.

Wax Hair Removal Bar was established in 2008 as the first international full-body waxing salon for both men and women. With locations in both Vancouver, Canada and Las Vegas, Nevada, we have had the pleasure of serving a broad clientele ranging from show business performers to adult entertainers to celebrities and the everyday person that walks through our door just looking to undergo a little maintenance.

We are the official Waxperts to the entertainers of the world-famous male revue, Chippendales. The men of Chippendales entrust only the best in regards to their grooming and manscaping needs, and with regular visits to our Las Vegas locations, we are the establishment that helps keep them looking their best for their performances.

Stop on by and you never know who you may run into!”

If it is good enough for the Chippendales…perhaps it is good enough for you,in your spa business or for the man in your life. While I do not perform body waxing I too am intrigued by this product wax,place and service!!!

How about you?
