50 @dayspamagazine • June 2019 BUILDING BLOCKS RETAIL ROCKSTAR THE SPA A Natural Difference Day Spa in Portsmouth, New Hampshire THE PRO Kimberly Bourbon, owner and esthetician THE STAR Yon-Ka Paris Lotion Yon-Ka WHY IT ROCKS "This is no ordinary toner—it's an alcohol-free treatment spray that refreshes, tones and purifies. Once clients try it, it's an easy sell, and new guests wind up wanting services that feature the mist. People especially love that they don't have to use as much moisturizer because of how nourishing it is. If a first-time customer buys a cleanser and moisturizer, I always throw in a travel-size Lotion Yon-Ka as a gift and explain the benefits—not only that it's hydrating, but that it can help heal existing blemishes and prevent new ones from forming. They always come back to buy the full retail size, and they're amazed at how long it lasts. The scent is intoxicating, too—I've even taught guests how to use the product at home in a diffuser! Clients often gift it to friends and family, or display it in guest bathrooms for company because the tall, frosted glass packaging is so beautiful. I keep Lotion Yon-Ka in stock at all times, as our guests simply can't live without it." u WHAT SPA SERVICES ARE MOST POPULAR IN SUMMER? Visit for extra coverage. MORE ONLINE! We fi nd that our guests primarily pick body treatments, along with manicures and pedicures, during warmer weather. The most requested service is the Polynesian Noni Body Wrap (50 min./$135), featuring Epicuren Noni Skin Elixir—a lightweight, oil-free gel with healing, antioxidant and skin-tightening properties. Our guests end up falling in love with this treatment because it helps alleviate sunburns and tight or aching muscles, while detoxifying the body and imparting a healthy, tropical glow. Kristina Russ Spa manager Spa at Pronghorn Resort Bend, Oregon The Texas heat drives people to us in droves! Our most sought-after treatments include the Deluxe Pedicure (60 min./$70) for fl awless feet in sandals and fl ip-fl ops, Sugaring ($20-$85) for bikini, legs, underarms— smooth skin and less shaving equals more fun in the sun—and our Viva Signature Massage (75 min./$130), which keeps clients energized and fl exible at a time of year when they tend to be more active. Since dr yness and sun damage are two of the season's major skincare concerns, guests also visit us for the HydraFacial (30 min./$150), which delivers a heaping dose of hydration. Dermaplaning (15 min./$60) is a popular add-on for an instant complexion boost with no downtime; it reduces the appearance of fi ne lines and wrinkles, removes facial peach fuzz, moisturizes, and provides the per fect canvas for a touch of bronzer. Shannon Mouser Cofounder Viva Day Spa Austin, Texas Our summer months are so breathtaking with the cherry blossom trees blooming, and spa-goers come to relax and realign their lives. Our most popular treatment is the Blue Corn Honey Float Wrap (90 min./$210). A fi nely ground blend of blue corn (an honored plant in Native American culture) and local Primland honey create a vitamin-rich scrub that leaves skin silky smooth and nourished, while our Softpak Float System cocoons and rejuvenates the client. After the wrap portion of the service, the guest is soothed with a 60-minute massage using a Naturopathica aromatherapy blend. Sabrina Antoine Spa director The Spa at Primland Meadows of Dan, Virginia
