It doesn’t have to be Mother’s Day to treat your clients to a pampering facial.  Add
these tips to any facial to make it a treatment to remember.


Begin with a dose of Relax Harmonized H20 added into an herbal tea.


Provide a warm neck wrap for extra relaxation.


Once in the treatment room begin the facial using one of our protocols that best fits the client’s skin.


Add an extra delicious neck and shoulder massage using a mixture of Immerse and the delightful chocolate scented Repair Mask.


Make mom's facial extra special by using Maxine's "Most delicious, beyond hydrating, wrinkle erasing treatment!" Combine Hydrating Herb Mask, 2 pumps Immerse, and 2 scoops Hyaluronic Acid. Mix well in bowl, warm it up in your hand and apply as a mask for 5-10 minutes. Remove with warm towel and proceed with facial.


End the treatment with a makeover using Colour Mineral Powder to match, a dust of South Beach Bronzer for glow, and a splash of grapefruit scented Lip Gloss to send your client on their way looking and feeling radiant!

Keep Your Skin Healthy

Probiotic Skin Products


It was once thought that all bacteria were harmful.  With modern science, we now know better and most of us take our probiotics to help maintain healthy gut flora which improves our immunity.  What about our skin though? 


Chlorella Vulgaris
People go to great lengths to ride their skin of bacteria with anti-bacterial face soaps, peroxide based solutions, and even prescriptive antibiotics.  There are estimated to be around 1,000 different types of bacteria on our skin.  Some of them can be harmful to us by causing an infection but most are beneficial and help improve our immune system.


Chlorella Vulgaris, green algae, is a probiotic that maintains the good bacteria helping keep balanced and healthy skin.  We use Chlorella Vulgaris throughout the Osmosis line not only for its promotion of healthy bacteria but also for its antioxidant and collagen production abilities.  It can be found in our Treatment A Serums, Replenish, Repair, and Facial Infusion Dermal Therapy.  We also use Lactic Acid at gentle doses that encourage a healthy pH for good bacteria to thrive.  Get healthier skin by encouraging the presence of good bacteria which strengthens and protects the skin.

As a professional, you are in the unique position to recognize early signs in your clients for skin cancer.  Skin cancer is the abnormal growth of skin due to DNA damage.  Skin cancer is most often caused by UV radiation and according to the Skin Cancer Foundation, it is the most prevalent form of cancer in the US affecting 2 million American each year.


Remember your ABCs and now D&Es to help detect early signs of skin cancer.



Border (irregular)

Color (more than 1 color)

Diameter (greater than 6mm)

Evolving and Elevated


One of the best ways to prevent skin cancer is sun protection.  Physical blocks are the healthiest way to provide this protection.  Shade Sunscreen Moisturizer and our Mineral Powder Foundations provide reflective properties and sit on the surface of the skin providing a physical barrier offering UV protection in two ways.
