What will you feature in April, May & June?

At our recent weekly mastermind meeting, we discussed the uncomfortable challenges of planning a spring treatment menu in the midst of the upheaval we’re all living with. Even with the difficulties we face, the discussion was overwhelmingly positive, and I’d like to share some of the most brilliant ideas that came from the brainstorming (along with some additional thoughts that we've had along the way).
 
First, even when it’s hard and you feel discouraged, keep your communication positive. If your health region moves into a more restrictive colour zone, please don’t tell your clients you need to “cancel” their appointment, let them know you will reschedule. Even better, offer them a unique service that they have never tried before! Suggest a wrap, a scrub, a neck and shoulder treatment, or a really rejuvenating back facial that they will love. Remind people what experiences they CAN have with you.
 
Some other suggestions to meet your spring treatment needs:
 
Consider simple and cost-effective addons that offer a luxury feel.
Be flexible with treatment options that will allow you to transition easily into your summer menu.
  • A full body immersion experience with Makes Scents in spring can transition to a leg/foot scrub or back facial on your summer menu - without buying any additional products!
  • To any body treatment you can add on a stimulating cellulite treatment with Moor Spa Contour Cream, and your client can continue the process at home to increase circulation and improve the appearance of stubborn cellulite
Create some holiday-themed promotions - it’s not too early to think about Mother’s Day!
  • Consider a spa gift card combined with a starter kit of trial size Moor Spa products to create a spa facial at home and build excitement for a future treatment.
  • You can never go wrong with a really indulgent pedicure that includes treats for every sense - the cocooning warmth of a leg & foot wrap, along with an invigorating scrub and a fragrant natural body butter for intense hydration.
  • If you're in a zone that permits it, create a spring-themed facial that reveals, radiant fresh skin - resurfacing exfoliation with a Moor Spa Pumpkin Peel, nourishing Kelp Enzyme Mask, and replenishing Hydrating Serum.
  • Build skincare boxes for homecare that bring delight to every client that orders one. In addition to a wide range of Moor Spa products available in retail and trial sizes (how about a combination of both?), you can add other small surprises that offer uplifting sensory experiences (chocolate, soft hair scrunchies, small candles, etc.)
  • Moor Spa Herbal Bath with Pine would make a great gift with purchase in the style of a “spring detox”
 
The options are endless to build your business this spring, bringing back your existing clients, and enticing new guests to learn more about you. As always, we can help you put together special packages that suit you and your clients. Simply reach out by text/telephone to 888-666-7683 or email orders@Lmoor.com

Do you love what you do?

 
There is nothing more satisfying than having a client come see you about their problem skin, and then being able to offer professional skincare services and products that help them. If you can actually make a living doing that, then you're a success.
 
When we ask our clients why they do what they do, estheticians tell us they got into this industry because they love helping people. They find, however, that one of the biggest challenges to meeting that goal is the "daily grind". They need to fill their book with services (any services) so that they can pay their bills.Natural Ingredients
 
What if you were able to fill your schedule with profitable services, and fuel your spirit by helping your clients fix their skincare challenges?
 
If your clients aren't already coming to you for knowledge about how to look after their skin, where are they going? You know the answer; they're going to YouTube, Google, and friends who sell door-to-door skincare. They're also hitting retail stores, where they buy the product the staff learned about from the last sales rep who visited!

 

You're a skincare professional and it's time to step into your knowledge and education. Learn to embrace your skills with confidence. You will help your clients make better decisions about what to use on their skin when you can explain why their skin is behaving the way it is.
 

Will Roderick teaching skin careWe're taking it "back to basics"

With a 6-hour certificate class, you'll have the opportunity to hone your foundational skincare skills. Led by highly qualified educators, this class combines a strong foundation in the basics (including anatomy and physiology) with sales and marketing techniques. Whether you're a new practitioner looking for a stronger foundation, or a seasoned professional wanting a refresher, this class has what you need.
 
We'll focus on skincare analysis,and understanding the physiology behind common skin concerns such as rosacea, hyperpigmentation, reactivity, and aging skin. Then we'll help you prioritize treatment, and come up with a plan for action.
 

Fads will fade, but healthy skin is always in fashion

There are plenty of fad services making headlines in the spa and beauty industry, and it's easy to find expensive training in all kinds of things. Essential skincare has sometimes been overshadowed by technology, but your hands have always been the best tool in your toolbox.

 

Skincare services are widely recognized as the most profitable. Offer your clients the assurance that your skin care knowledge is current, so they can be confident you're making the best recommendations for their skin health.Professional skin care

Exfoliation: Your Secret Weapon for Healthy Skin

Body Treatments

Winter air brings dry, dull, flaky skin, and when spring arrives (really, it’s coming!) it’s time to remove old layers of skin to reveal fresh, glowing skin for our warmer months. 

As we age, the process of skin cell “renewal” slows down. This means that the body is slower to shed skin cells and generate new ones.  When old skin cells start to pile up on the surface of the skin, it can leave skin looking dull, rough, and dry. This build-up of dead skin cells can leave us with excess oil and clogged pores, leading to blemishes and acne.

Our skin needs some help! How do we do it? Exfoliation. 

Proper exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers fresh new cells below. Not only does exfoliation remove old layers of skin, but it also helps our moisturizers and lotions absorb better, leaving hydrated healthy, beautiful skin. A regular routine of exfoliation will keep your skin fresh and healthy.

One thing to consider, however, is that the exfoliation that works for your feet is absolutely not appropriate for your face!

Here are some helpful suggestions for looking after ALL the skin you own:

Face

The key here is gentle - choose a physical scrub such as Moor Spa’s Facial Polish. Fine jojoba beads in an aloe vera gel base are safe for your skin, and because they’re not plastic microbeads, they’re also good for our environment. Facial Polish can be used several times a week, right in the shower. For a thorough enzymatic exfoliation (think tiny “pac-man” removing all your dead skin cells), consider Moor Spa’s Pumpkin Peel with enzymes from pumpkin, papaya and pineapple. As part of aprofessional facial protocol, it’s a really effective way to reveal your freshest skin and improve texture and firmness.

Body

Skin on your body can benefit from a more vigorous exfoliation, and there are lots of choices available. As part of a beautiful spa treatment, a salt glow exfoliation with Moor Spa’s Himalayan Salt Glow and Complete Oil is applied with flowing, light movements to stimulate lymphatic movement, remove dead skin cells, and leave skin soft and glowing. Take home a Moor Spa Body Scrub Cream with walnut shell powder to recreate the smooth skin feeling at home (or include the Body Scrub Cream in a professional pedicure/leg massage and reduce the likelihood of ingrown hairs between waxing!).

One of the most traditional methods of keeping skin healthy and soft is Dry Brushing. This treatment can be blissful all on its own when you’re in spa, or as part of a self-directed treatment at home. Soothing, smoothing, invigorating and healthy, a Moor Spa Dry Brush treatment moves lymphatic fluid, exfoliates dead skin and improves circulation, which may reduce the signs of cellulite.

When you’ve removed all the dead, dull skin, embrace the rich hydration in Moor Spa Body Lotion. With no petroleum derivatives, your skin will drink in all the nourishing moisture and leave your skin glowing with health.

Feet

Oh, our poor neglected feet! After a long winter, we are desperate to feel the warm sun on our toes. Have you SEEN your heels, though? Rough, cracked, dry and flaky feet need our love. The first step to take care of winter-weary feet is to book a thorough pedicure with your favourite esthetician, who will professionally remove dead skin with the Canadian-made Diamancel stainless steel foot file. (The famous #20 is our favourite!). Not only is it thorough, the stainless steel files are fully disinfectable, so you can be assured you’re getting the cleanest, healthiest treatment possible. Once your fresh feet are revealed, help them soak up some moisture with the deeply penetrating antibacterial Moor Spa Foot Cream

If all this seems a little confusing, trust your esthetician to help you choose the right exfoliation for you. Book your appointment to be ready for the warmer weather - we promise it’s coming soon!
