Clients go to great lengths to get their bodies ready for summer, and ensuring that your team members and skin care facility are embracing the summer atmosphere can increase retail sales and add new life to your service menu. Take the time to review the current menu in order to ensure that winter and spring treatments are removed. Skin care services should always reflect the current season and, during the summer, body treatments, manicures and pedicures should incorporate and highlight scrubs, oils and lotions that utilize scents, such as cucumber, coconut, citrus and melon essential oils. These aromas tend to generate increased happiness and energy, so make sure that you sell retail sizes of the products used in summertime treatments so clients can take home a little bit of that summertime feeling.

Sunless tanning. Offering sunless-tanning treatments in your spa is a great alternative for your clients, who should always be advised to stay away from sun-worshipping. Offering packages that include pre-tanning exfoliation treatments can help clients prepare for and look their best when on vacation or for an everyday summer glow. Train team members in advance to provide these services so they can perfect them before summer.

Sun-repair treatments. One of the hottest spa treatments this summer will involve sun repair. Consider offering late-summer facials and body treatments that are infused with ingredients such as pomegranate, green tea and vitamin C to promote repair. Ensure that you retail a facial and body care line that correlates with the repairing treatments that your clients can use at home.
