Experts discuss how ingestibles can complement spa services. by Alexa Joy Sherman 22 @dayspamagazine • July 2019 SPOTLIGHT How do nutritional supplements fi t into the spa setting? Adina Diaz, owner, Natural Feeling Spa in Los Angeles: I believe in providing clients with a full lifestyle approach to their skincare needs, which is why I emphasize the importance of their internal and external health. Whether guests need help balancing their hormones to better control breakouts, or simply need to increase their daily vitamin intake, supplements are the perfect way to support a healthy complexion. Offering these remedies furthers my mission to introduce consumers to better skin and improved overall health, in which facials, skin care and supplements all work in harmony. Bianca Menzerotolo, president and CEO, SB Health & Beauty Spa in Tampa, Florida: Not only do we offer products and services that improve the appearance of the face and body, we want to help restore guests' energy levels and repair the cellular damage that accompanies the aging process. Nutritional supplements give the body the vitamins and minerals it needs to look and feel better from the inside out. Andrea Welch, owner and esthetician, BioSonic Beauty in Oak Brook, Illinois: Supplements can complement almost any spa service. For example, a detox product can be taken to enhance the results of treatments such as body wraps or infrared sessions, since the supplements can support inch loss and draining fat cells; and a collagen supplement can improve skin health alongside facial services. How do you entice clientele to purchase these products? Menzerotolo: We tell guests all about the benefi ts of taking a supplement like Skinade, educating them on the many ways it supports their skin and enhances the results of the services we offer. We specifi cally explain that the formula helps boost skin's natural collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin production. This happens when the tiny collagen fragments in the drink are absorbed into the bloodstream, triggering a healing response. We also offer a sample bottle as a beverage before or after a service, rather than giving them tea, coffee or water. It's a great way to introduce the product to clients and get the conversation started, allowing our staff to talk it up like we do with topicals used during treatments. Just one bottle a day promotes softer, smoother, fi rmer skin and healthier- looking hair and nails—results that appeal to anyone.
