With the ever-increasing number of ingredient options available in the skincare industry, it can be difficult to keep track of what is available to us. Not only that, but it is even more difficult for clients to identify which ingredients are the best to use for their skin type. Take minerals for example, which while beneficial to a multitude of skin types, but can become overwhelming when we have to determine which mineral-based products are the ones we should be using. Here, three spa industry pros share their tips to determining which minerals are the best to incorporate into your spa's treatments.

“For acneic skin, you might begin with a cleanser containing sulfur and green tea for antibacterial and purifying support. This could be followed by a sulfur-based mask and an enzyme containing phosphorus. Finally, you might finish with sodium hyaluronate for hydration and a zinc-based sunblock for UV protection.”
—Shannon Esau, director of sales and education, Rhonda Allison Cosmeceuticals

“It’s important to understand the benefits of the particular mineral in the products you will be using. Then you can implement the product and create an overall treatment based on the benefits that mineral provides. If incorporating a product made with sulfur, it’s best to use in a service aimed at treating acne and reducing inflammation.”
—Szilvia Hickman, owner of Szep Elet, exclusive distributor of Ilike Organic Skin Care
