The holidays are a great time to pamper yourself at a day spa in order to relieve your stress from all of the activities such as Christmas shopping, attending parties or visiting relatives. The holiday season is also a time when the weather changes, leading to colder temperatures that cause you to have aching joints and sore muscles that require massage therapy. When you receive a gift card for Christmas, make sure to use it right away on your favorite spa treatments, including:
• A facial – choose from exfoliating, deep cleansing or moisturizing varieties
• A manicure – soaking, trimming and polishing your fingernails
• A massage – invigorating or relaxing types of massage therapy
• A pedicure – soaking your feet and trimming your toenails
You can spend several hours at a day spa having your own relaxing vacation to alleviate the tension in your neck, shoulders and back with a massage while improving the appearance of your facial skin, hands and feet.
In some cases, the therapists and estheticians can work together at the same time to provide several spa treatments at once in only a few hours. Alternatively, you can use a gift card for a full day of pampering that is designed for beautifying your entire body and face while reducing your stress.
While receiving a massage, facial, manicure or pedicure, you can also request additional amenities such as listening to soothing music, smelling aromatic candles or having applications of fragrant essential oils. After undergoing massage therapy and other treatments, you will have less stress and more energy along with having gorgeous fingernails, skin, and toenails to begin the next year.
If you want to give a present to someone this Christmas, then buy a gift certificate for a local day spa. After the busy holiday season ends, the person who receives your present can visit the day spa to enjoy a spa treatment that includes one of these services:
• A manicure – cuticle removal and fingernail polishing
• A massage – relaxing or invigorating treatments on the body
• A facial – exfoliation, moisturizing or cleansing
• A pedicure – soaking the feet followed by toenail polishing

Even if you have the most pristine makeup, gorgeous hair, and stunning clothes, if your fingernails and toenails aren’t on point, your whole look will suffer. The truth is that nail care should be an essential part of your beauty routine. Nails that are unshaped, dull-looking and marked by cuticles which haven’t been groomed in months are hard to go unnoticed.
Luckily, this can be helped with a simple manicure and pedicure at a day spa. Just like a striking dress or a unique hairstyle, getting a manicure and pedicure done regularly allows you to express yourself creatively by using your nails as your canvas. (more…)

Spa treatments are important for taking care of your body, and you can transform a regular manicure into an amazing experience through the benefits offered by paraffin wax. While many people see this service offered at their day spa, they are often hesitant to try the new treatment because they do not know what it will involve. Yet, asking for a paraffin wax treatment at your next beauty spa appointment will provide you with the following benefits that will make it become one of your favorite parts of your beauty routine.
Paraffin wax is usually used during a manicure or pedicure as an additional treatment. Before the procedure, paraffin wax is heated to a comfortable temperature. Then, your hands and feet will be dipped into the wax, and it will be allowed to cool until it is solid. The wax is then removed once it has cooled. While the entire procedure only takes minutes, it leaves behind multiple benefits.
This is one of the most popular spa treatments available because it promotes a sense of relaxation. Having your hands dipped into the warm wax is a sensory experience that generates feelings of positive well-being. The warm wax also offers therapeutic benefits during a pedicure such as removing dead skin as it is peeled away. The wax also helps to increase the skin’s ability to retain moisture, which leaves your hands and feet completely soft and smooth.
Touchable, soft skin is an immediate benefit of having a paraffin wax treatment done at your day spa. Yet, the benefits just continue as you enjoy the pampering feeling of spending a few minutes enveloping your skin in warmth. The softness also extends the benefits of your manicure so that you feel your best from head to toe.

Loyal customers are a boon to any business. This is particularly true if you run a customer service dependent business such as a spa. Spa-goers are in a buyers’ market. Many businesses offer reasonable massage therapy services and spa treatments. As a result, clients are always searching for the best possible experience. As the manager or spa owner, it is up to you to ensure that your clients’ expectations are at least met, if not exceeded, during every visit, without exception. The following tips can help you maintain and build a loyal client base that improves your spa’s community reputation and drives profits.
Other than offering the best services available, loyalty card programs are a great way for spas to make repeat visits more attractive for clients. A loyalty card, whether it is a physical or a virtual card, gives clients a tangible reminder that a regular pedicure, manicure or massage is a kind of routine maintenance. It also rewards repeat attendees with more of the services they love and, perhaps, inspires them to invite a potential client or two to your spa. (more…)

Your hands might not be the first thing people notice about you upon introduction, but they are noticeable. Messy, unkempt nails are often a turnoff for people. When you don’t care for your hands and nails, others assume that you might not be as hygienic as you are. Nail biting, cuticle picking, and even brittle nails can cause your hands to look unsightly, and it can cause a bad first impression. If you can stop biting and picking at your nails, you can make a huge improvement to your appearance. However, brittle nails are a slightly more complicated issue. It’s not always obvious what the causes of brittle nails are, but there is a remedy for brittle nails.
One of the most common causes of brittle nails is your diet. When you’re not getting enough of the nutrients you need, your nails suffer along with the rest of your body. Even a great manicure won’t help when you have dietary concerns. What will help so that your manicure once again looks good in the future, however, is making sure you are getting enough Vitamin C, iron and protein. Your diet needs to be filled with healthy fats and other nutrients, and meeting the recommended daily nutrient values for your age and weight is a great remedy for brittle nails. (more…)
