Nails for this Season

Nails are currently a big thing! They are also a popular addition to spa days, so it’s good for us to be aware of current trends and demands. 

We all like to have lovely looking, soft, summer feet, and the industry is seeing a growing demand for results-driven treatments. Treatments such as Callus Peels are very popular and also make a simple upgrade to any pedicure. These treatments generally include the application of patches to the feet to deeply exfoliate using Salicylic acid. 

If we think of trends this year, it’s been all about mermaids and unicorns, with that come to the shimmery metallic colours, glitters and summer brights, which are all causing a big stir. At the forefront of the summer, brights are bolder colours such as yellows, oranges, blues and greens.

Cool Down Spa treatments

So, how “hot” is your spa? Are you running with the latest trends and technologies to help your guests to cool down? 

August is the month where the kids are off school, and thousands of your frazzled clients are trying to keep them occupied whilst enjoying the summer heat. Want an offering to help keep those parents cool and calm? 

Then look no further than the use of flotation tanks to aid their quality of sleep during these summer months. 

This unique approach to health and well-being allows your client to enter a state of soothing tranquillity. Floatation tanks have proven to be one of the most effective ways to enhance mood. This is due to the increased levels of dopamine and endorphins during a treatment, leaving clients with less physical pain and a heightened sense of happiness! 

Your clients will benefit from the use additional mineral salts, allowing them to feel feather light for days to come.

Are you ready for this increasingly popular trend?

It is the beginning of the summer holidays and the Brooks family are planning their summer holiday. Dad works as a plumber seven days a week on call 24 hours, and mum works as a part time medical receptionist. The weekends are taken up with weekend activities for the children.

Mum and dad are exhausted and really could do with a spa holiday like they used to have before they were married and the family came along, however, how would they be able to have great spa treatments without the children’s constant demands?

The amazing thing about today's industry is that spas, hotels country houses and urban spas from one end of the country to the other and world wide have woken up to the needs of family orientated spas. Many spas world wide now offer family spa facilities with suitable treatments for teenagers, children’s clubs where an area is provided to entertain the children and supervised professional childminders, and even for young babies and toddlers there are crèches. That way mum and dad can have that amazing, relaxing wellness spa treatment experience in peace.

When considering family spa days in your establishment, it is important to bear in mind that you may need to ensure it meets the legal regulations of your premises, including health and safety and public liability insurance. If dealing with minors make sure you meet all the requirements. Remember also to consider your other clients and their needs so it may be something you have once a month or every other month.

DISCOVER THE STRENGTH OF COLOURS FOR BODY, MIND AND SPIRIT!

SOFRI Energy Cosmetics is a perfect combination of cosmeceutical products with a holistic concept of Colour Energy.

SOFRI has discovered the beautifying, energising effects of colours on body, mind and spirit for holistic cosmetology, and building on from that has created a unique care system of 7 colours based on chakra teachings.

The Colour Energy concept by SOFRI not only touches and beautifies your skin, but also the very core of you. Premium quality nourishing compositions use colour energy against emotional stress, release blockages, increase energy levels and your zest for life.

Chakra teachings observe and understand the individual holistically – physiologically, psychologically and energetically. If there is disharmony in chakras (energy centres along the centre axis of the body), this is usually evident on skin. Here, colours are able to balance out these energy deficits in the chakras.

The products are combined with each other in a colour mosaic – to match your individual treatment requirements.
