If you run a spa, including antioxidants in your lineup of services and products can help increase your bottom line, while also keeping your consumers happy, allowing them to get a massage and some antioxidant care -- at the same time. Here are just three ways you can start incorporating antioxidants into your lineup.
1. Offer Green Tea
Green tea has some amazing health properties. A Japanese study of the drink has found that the more green tea that people drank, the less likely they were to die from respiratory disease, stroke, or heart disease. Why? Research has yet to uncover its exact secret, but green tea is high in antioxidants known as polyphenols, which may help regulate body fat and blood pressure. Offering a cup of green tea to clients as they wait for their appointment is an easy way to focus on health!
2. Private Label Skin Care
If clients like you, they trust you. For this reason, it can be a good idea to invest in private label skincare for spas. What does this mean? Essentially, you put your spa’s name on a product that has already been tested and vetted. This way your clients get the best skin care line available, and you get to strengthen your brand. It’s easy to find products that have antioxidants in them -- eyecreams with antioxidants, peptides (they stimulate collagen production) and retinols are especially popular, since they can help sagging skin.
3. Essential Oils
Using essential oils during aromatherapy massages makes sense -- scents like lavender and mint can help to relax and invigorate the body and mind. Using essential oils that have antioxidants can be a good way to improve the massage experience for your clients. You can also sell scented antioxidant skin products and oils that, similarly, will help clients relax in their free time as well.
Pollution and environmental stresses can have an aging effect on the body, but antioxidants can help fight this. Whether it's offering the best skin care line available or a healthy mug of green tea, get your clients on board with the powerful effects of antioxidants today!
