Those who know me well, know I am absolutely obsessed with raw nuts, seeds, dried fruit, and berries! In fact, I always keep pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, and a variety of nuts in the house, and pack them in my bag daily for easy work snacks. And don't get me started on airport food - it's just the worst! I'm on an airplane every weekend for work, so eating healthy can be challenging. This is why bringing my own snacks has become a habit, in my book.
Almonds are one of the most easily accessible type of nuts - you can find raw almonds in any local grocery store, at gas stations, and convenience stores, but don't let that fool you - they are a super-food! Almonds contain Vitamins B2, E, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Manganese, and Copper. Most importantly, a ¼ cup serving contains 49% of your recommended daily allowance of biotin! What's Biotin? Biotin, is also known as B7, is vital for the proper functioning of the nervous system and musculature and in maintaining cellular processes like growth, metabolism and energy. It is frequently referred to as the "beauty vitamin" because of its restoring properties on the skin. When we lack Biotin, our skin is the first to show the signs of deficiency. According to the Dermal Institute, these are the symptoms of B7 deficiency:
- Red, scaly rash around the nose, mouth and eyes.
- Thinning hair, sometimes with shedding and loss of pigment (graying hair).
- Possible depression, fatigue, hallucinations.
- Tingling sensations in the arms and legs.
- Muscle cramps after exercise.
- Possible high cholesterol and heart problems.
- Cradle cap, a type of seborrheic dermatitis of the scalp, head and eyebrows. In babies, crusty yellowish-whitish patches appear in these areas and may or may not be itchy.
- Increased risk for developing other health issues
Sounds like we want to keep healthy, and avoid any skin problems like this, right? I bet you didn't know this, but you can incorporate almonds into both your meals, and your skincare routine. I will show you 4 ways to do this, today!
1. Incorporate Almonds Into Your Diet
Don't be confused by uneducated people telling you that consuming nuts will make you gain weight. Numerous studies have shown that incorporating unsaturated fats (such as nuts and avocado) actually helps stabilize weight.
A 28-month study involving 8,865 adult men and women in Spain, found that participants who ate nuts at least two times per week were 31% less likely to gain weight than participants who never ate nuts. Among the participants who gained weight, those who never ate nuts gained an average of 424g more than those who ate nuts at least twice a week.
A serving of almonds has 162 calories, 14 grams of heart-healthy unsaturated fat, and 6 grams of protein. Remember, one serving of almonds is 23 almonds, which equals 1 ounce, ¼ cup or about 1 handful. Portion control is key. I also highly encourage you to stay away from processed nuts - I, personally, avoid any roasted, salted, flavored nuts at all costs. The best way to eat them is to sprout them.
Sprouting or soaking nuts removes the outer shell, which contains phytic acid. Phytic acid is a naturally occurring botanical substance, it a strong chelator to the most essential minerals such as zinc, calcium, and iron. Whenever you consume nuts with phytic acid present (with the shell on, essentially), those nutrients will be removed, and not used by your body as they were intended to. When you soak and sprout the almonds, not only will you remove the outer shell, and the physic acid, but you will also increase the amount of active enzymes in the nuts - making it more easily digestible for those who experience stomach issues during digestion.
2. Use An Almond Scrub
Have you heard about microbeads? If not, I'd like to educate you on these little plastic culprits, and make sure you stay away from face and body scrubs which list them as an active ingredient. Microbeads are tiny round plastic beads that are found in some exfoliating products, and they are causing quite a stir in the environmental world. The plastic waste caused by these microbeads, which are not filtered out during sewage treatment, is damaging water ecosystems and killing marine life.
A 2013 research at the University of Wisconsin-Superior showed that there were 1,500 to 1.7 million plastic particles per square mile in the Great Lakes! Not only are the beads damaging to fish, they are also bad for your face - microbeads can cause eye irritation, and promote rosacea and couperose. It’s no wonder that Illinois was the first state to ban the use of microbeads in June of 2014, and I sincerely hope all other states will quickly follow.
Instead of using these plastic beads, I suggest natural options like scrubs with ground up almonds, seeds and stone pits from apricots/peaches, crushed walnut husks, oats, coffee grinds, salt, and sugar. I especially recommend sugar for those dealing with eczema since it’s non irritating on broken skin, and sea salt for psoriasis sufferers, but not more than once a week. All other scrubs can be used 3 times a week, but not more - our skin needs adequate time to amass dry dead cells, and you definitely don’t want to over-exfoliate!
3. Use Almond Oil as A Body Moisturizer
Did you know that different vegetable oils rank differently against each other when it comes to how much they clog the pores? Oils rank from 0-5, a 0 being least comedogenic, and 5 as most comedogenic. ("Comedogenic" means tending to cause blackheads by blocking the pores of the skin.) Almond oil is an amazing 2 (moderately low) while Coconut oil is a high 4, rendering it a bad choice for skincare. Almond oil can be used as a hair moisturizer, a body moisturizer, and a wonderful massage oil.
4. Use Almond Milk as An Activator For Powder Masks
Who says you can't play with your food? I love the idea of incorporating almonds in every step of the beauty routine. Almond milk is gentle and soothing on the skin, which makes it a perfect activator for powder enzyme masks. Simply mix the powder with a bit of warm almond milk, and apply to the face for 7-10 minutes. The result is a bright, supple completion! Using this mask helps to pull out oils, exfoliate, and reduce the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, cellulite and even stretch marks. It's perfect for blemished skin, blackheads and even cystic acne, and excellent for soothing skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema, rashes, psoriasis, and acne.

Many women tend to over-exfoliate the skin, in hopes of sloughing off dead skin, and thus achieving a fresh and renewed complexion. This is a misconception, since our skin is a very efficient organ, and doesn’t require exfoliation more than 2-3 times per week. In fact, exfoliating as often as daily, can strip the skin of its natural oils, which may cause break-outs.
What is cell turnover, and what are the average rates at which our body replaces skin cells? Cell turnover is the process by which our skin makes new skin cells, traveling from the lowest layer of the epidermis to the top layer and then shedding off. This process is what keeps dead cells from building up on the skin’s surface. Skin cells live about 2-3 weeks. Unfortunately, skin cell turnover slows with age, so exfoliation is useful, but daily exfoliation is excessive.
According to Milady’s Standard, Fundamentals For Estheticians below are the average rates of cell turnover by age group:
Babies: 14 Days
Teenagers: 21-28 Days
Middle Age Persons: 28-42 Days
Those 50 and Older: 42-84 Days
Sometimes clients are surprised that they still get acne, even though they exfoliate daily, what they don’t realize, is that the skin is compensating for the loss of oils, and is overproducing sebum.
Clients with dry, sensitive, thin skin will benefit greatly if they reduce their exfoliation to 1-2 times per week, since the oils on our ski keep it moist and supple. Over-exfoliating will dry out their complexion, and make wrinkles more prominent. In addition to this, they may experience couperose, exacerbated rosacea and increased sun-sensitivity.
For clients with dry skin, it’s recommended to exfoliate 1-2 times per week, and 2-3 times per week for those with oily skin. No one way of exfoliation is perfect for all skin types, so I would like to mention many possible alternatives in this article, in hopes to inspire you to select from all the possible options.
To make things as simple as possible - there are 2 types of exfoliators - physical and chemical. Everything that is used to mechanically slough off the dead skin is referred to as “physical exfoliation”. This includes methods such as a scrub, microdermabrasion, and a rotating sonic brush to scrape off the dead skin cells with friction. This is a very easy way to refresh the skin, and it appeals to both men and women.
“Chemical exfoliation” refers to acids, peels and enzymes. Enzymes are a wonderful way to safely exfoliate the skin without breaking capillaries, and causing irritation. An enzymatic exfoliation is a good natural way to clean out the pores, get rid of excess oils, slough off the dry and dead skin for a healthy cell turnover. Fruit enzymes, such as Bromelain (from pineapple) and Papain (from papaya) eat away at the oils and dry skin, to expose a refreshed, clear complexion. Enzyme masks are generally more gentle and more safe than acids, and don’t thin the skin like Retin-A. Using these masks 2-3 times a week is plenty, and steaming them helps pull out impurities furthermore.
Clients with these conditions should avoid peels and over-exfoliation:
- Acne/ Cystic Acne
- Elderly Clientele
- Tan or Sunburned / Using Tanning Bed
- Hypopigmentation Sufferers
- Type V and VI on the Fitzpatrick Scale

The skincare and beauty world is constantly evolving, and sometimes it's hard to keep up with what's new. I like to have my hand on the pulse of the industry, and I will tell you what's going on! So, what has been the bigest change to the spa industry over the last two decades?
I have been in the spa industry for over 15 years, and I have seen skin care trends come and go. I am very happy to see a departure from heavily fragranced and colored products, and more interest in natural, fragrance-free and color-free formulas. The ornate packaging that was the mark of elite beauty products is now on its way out, and more simplistic, clean, and eco-friendly packaging is now in style. Consumers and spa owners are now very aware of all the extra paper and plastic waste that unnecessary boxes and decorative bottles produce, and are now turning towards simple glass bottles and cleaner lines. I love this, because Saian Skincare has been in-line with this philosophy since 2007.

For those of you who are familiar with my mom, Margarita Saian's classes, dandelion will ring a bell right away. This was my mother's favorite tea - she praised it, and said it was a cure-all - even for hepatitis and cirrhosis. Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) is a yellow flower that we all remember making crowns out of in the summer. Dandelions have very small flowers collected together into a composite flower head. Each single flower in a head is called a floret. Once the flower head turns white, you can blow on it, and the little florets fly away!
There are two parts to the dandelion: the root and the leaves, and both parts have their own use. Both help regulate parts of the digestive system, but the root is best for liver problems while the leaf is best for issues related to the kidneys. Dandelion plants are edible in their entirety - the leaves contain abundant vitamins and minerals, especially vitamins A, C, and K, and are good sources of calcium, potassium, iron, and manganese. To make the leaves more palatable, they are often blanched or sauteed to remove bitterness. The leaves can also be consumed raw in salads, or juiced! One of my favorite juice recipes contains dandelion greens. You can find it HERE.
The reason the leaves and the root are excellent for the kidneys, is because their chief function is as a diuretic. They flush the kidneys of toxins, and alleviate swelling. In high enough doses, the leaves produce a similar effect to that of common prescription diuretics like Lasix. Dandelion leaves may also reduce the occurrence of urinary tract infections in women.
When used to alleviate bloating, dandelion root tea has been shown have a significant effect on water content in the body because of its diuretic properties. It also has shown to lower blood sugar levels and reduce high cholesterol.
The Institute of Agricultural Medicine in Poland tested therapeutic herbs for kynurenic acid (an amino acid for digestive system support and bile production), and the highest concentration of this compound was found in dandelion. Dandelion helps to stimulate bile production and bile transport toxins out of the body, so evidence shows it supports the body’s natural immune response.
Dandelion tea enhances detoxification, by stimulating urination and by replacing the potassium lost in that process. It helps to receive bloating, constipation and diarrhea, and regulates water retention in the body. If you don't like the taste of the tea, try adding a slice of lemon, some honey or stevia to it. The roasted dandelion roots have a nutty flavor, and make a delicious, healthy tea! Enjoy!

As the first person your customers communicate with – on the phone and upon entering the spa, the receptionist needs to make a good first impression. A great receptionist is someone on the front lines who has a professional appearance and attitude. Not many people know this, but I have spent 8 years out of my 17 years of industry experience as a spa receptionist. I know exactly what it takes to select a great receptionist, and will give you some pointers on what to look for as you go through the interview process.
First thing to look for in a qualified spa receptionist is a tidy, put together appearance. Your spa or salon is a place of beauty, health and tranquility, so having a receptionist with chipped nails, or messy oily hair will create disharmony in the overall image of your business. By any means, your employees don’t have to look like supermodels, but excellent hygiene is a must! A tidy and put-together person will also be wonderful at organizing the desk, and keeping the work area clean and manageable. This type of employee will never write an important phone message on a post-it in a pile of papers.
During the interview, you can role-play with the candidate, and him or her take down a message. Look for legible handwriting, correct spelling, and take notice of the tone of voice. A good phone presence is a crucial skill. You can trust that an empathetic person will be a wonderful listener who can accommodate your clients’ requests, and will help work out any slipups that may occur, such as double-booking, or other issues. It is important to choose a team player who shows enthusiasm in discovering the spa’s treatments and products. A good receptionist will ask many questions to get better acquainted with the different types of facials, and massages, and will try treatments to know how they feel. First-hand experience with treatments and products is the best way to passionately talk about them, and suggest them to clients.
A very important quality in a front-desk person is the ability to multi-task without feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or frustrated. A candidate who is well-versed in a multitude of computer programs and apps is an asset to your organization. Not only will this receptionist quickly acquaint him/herself with your spa booking software, but he or she will be able to manage multiple tasks with ease. Someone who is technologically savvy is wonderful at implementing the newest apps and programs to help take the clutter out of, what may seem to be confusing, tasks.
Look for candidates with a humble and agreeable personality. A person who easily takes directions, and can handle constructive criticism will be a breeze to work with for both you and your clients. Look for someone with great integrity who can show initiative and improvise, and avoid those who will walk past a candy wrapper on the floor, and use the excuse “that’s not part of my job description” to justify not tossing it into the trash can.
These simple tips are what I believe will help you select the right person for your front desk. I have worked as a receptionist at the same spa for 8 years, prior to joining my mother to start our own skin care brand. My previous employer, co-workers, clients and I still keep in touch, because that job was my passion and my priority. I never brought in negativity, and I always made everyone I worked with feel loved and well taken care of. The most important attributes to look for are integrity and a good nature, and the rest of the technicalities can be learned in time!

Take a look at this dramatic result just after 3 days of using our vitamin K and Arnica bruising creme! SAIAN® Vital K Creme is the most-effective paraben-free topical creme which works wonders on postoperative bruising following cosmetic surgery or injections, micro-needling, rosacea, dark circles, and hyperpigmentation.
Bruising and dark spots are the appearance of blood which has been released from the tiny capillaries of the battered area into the tissue under the skin. Over time the color eventually fades as the blood is absorbed back into the body and away from the surface.
To halt the expansion and deepening of unsightly discoloration, we use Phytonadione (Vitamin K). This is the body's natural blood coagulating agent which stops the spread of blood from seeping further. Individuals with low levels of Vitamin K will often experience wider and darker bruises, taking excessively long periods of time to recover because is not enough Vitamin K in their systems to prevent this from occurring. Not only is this creme perfect for post-surgical and injection-site bruising, but also ideal for micro-needling, cuperose, rosacea, and dark under-eye circles. http://saian.net/product/vital-k-creme/
Since our skin in the largest organ of our body, our pores readily absorb artificial fragrances, dyes, and petrochemicals in personal care products. Years of continuous use of fragranced toiletries can cause allergic reactions, especially for nail techs and hairdressers. Natural skin care lines use botanical extracts to fragrance their products, and proudly omit harmful and irritating additives, making them the ideal choice for those who have an adverse reaction to perfumes and dyes.

1. Before beginning the treatment, make sure you have your SAIAN Pure Hyaluronic Acid Spray and SAIAN Cryo-Globes in the refrigerator. The finishing cooling touch is very important at the end of this treatment.
2. Cleanse the face with SAIAN Replenishing Cleanser. This milky cleanser’s gentle and natural formula removes surface impurities and all traces of make-up, leaving skin moisturized and supple. Aloe vera and chamomile are hydrating, softening, calming, as well as anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory. This product is perfect for sensitive skin.
3. Apply numbing cream to treatment area and leave on for 30 minutes. Remove numbing cream thoroughly.
4. Apply antiseptic wipe to treatment area.
5. Apply 1/2 SAIAN Hyaluronic Acid Ampoule to the entire treatment area. The rest of the ampoule will be used later in the treatment.
6. Begin treatment by dividing the face into five parts: forehead, left and right cheeks, nose, upper lip and chin.
7. Apply a few drops of SAIAN Hyaluronic Acid Ampoule to the treatment area.
8. Perform microneedling according to your device’s manufacturer’s instructions. Work on all 5 sections in the same manner until the entire face has been treated. After treating each section, wipe any bleeding.
9. After the entire face has been treated, take the SAIAN Pure Hyaluronic Acid Spray out of the refrigerator, and spray the face with SAIAN Pure Hyaluronic Acid Spray. This product serves as an activator for the collagen mask, as well as a light, oil-free hydrator.
10. Cover the face with SAIAN Pure Pure Collagen Mask. Fold the mask in half over the client’s face, mark and cut the mask around the nose area. Apply the dry collagen mask immediately over the face quickly and spray with more SAIAN Pure Hyaluronic Acid Spray, molding gently to the face and neck with sponges. Leave mask on the face for no less than 20 minutes. Remove the mask.
11. Apply SAIAN Vital K Creme to the entire face. This creme provides a powerful dose of Vitamin K to repair the damaged area, supplying the patient’s skin with the means to halt the flow of bruising and pause discoloration. To maximize and quicken the recovery process, we use Arnica. This natural herb, rich with anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties is a highly efficient vasodilator of blood capillaries. Arnica drastically increases the fade back time, by escalating the recession of blood away from the damaged capillaries and back into the body. This helps return the skin to a flush and even color in a fraction of the time it would usually take after it has been traumatized by physical impact. Applying SAIAN Vital K Creme to the area significantly reduces the swelling and dark patch, and brings the color back to normal, as well as moves blood through the damaged capillaries for reduced discomfort and pain.
12. Spray with SAIAN Sunscreen Mist. This is an oil-free light sunscreen spray. Chemical sunblocks are never recommended after invasive treatments, and this light Titanium dioxide based sunscreen is the perfect alternative.
13. Roll over the entire area with SAIAN Cryo Globes.

Cavitation is not a method to lose weight but to reshape the body. It is particularly indicated for the reduction of adiposity, the famous “love handles” that won’t go away with diet and exercise. Treatments remove cellulite preventing fat cells from recurring in the treated areas, without damaging the vascular system. Cavitation is an absolutely easy and painless treatment.
Using leading edge technology, SAIAN Ultrasound Cavitation converts fat cells into liquid which can then be naturally drained by the body’s own natural filtration system. This machine is perfect to use on the thighs, abdomen, flanks, and buttocks. Generally one fat cavitation treatment lasts 30 minutes to an hour, and 72 hours must pass between each session so that the body can eliminate the fat. We suggest a minimum of 10-12 sessions for the best results.
This ergonomic wireless handpiece is used in combination with SAIAN Bio-Contour Cellulite Gel, and will become your favorite mobile esthetic tool! The handpiece transmits low level ultrasonic waves which consist of compression/expansion impulses that travel in high-speed cycles. Ultrasound frequencies cause thousands of microscopic air bubbles to surround the lipocyte (fat cell) membranes and with vibration, the bubbles create enough pressure to cause the fat cells to break up instantly. The contents of the broken lipocytes are then moved through the lymphatic system to the liver and are safely metabolized and excreted from the body, assisted by drinking plenty of water both the day of treatment and on subsequent days. The procedure works best to remove superficial fat layers and fat accumulation that is non-volumetric.

Collagen infusion therapy is the perfect treatment for aging skin. Freeze-dried collagen masks enhance moisture levels, hydrate, improve functions of skin capillaries, recover loss of firmness and elasticity, even color tone, oxygenate and stimulate natural skin collagen production. Collagen infusion therapy produces visible plumping of the skin around eyes, mouth and forehead. This specialized facial not only provides a tightening of the skin, but moisturizes, plumps, and reduces wrinkles for up to 3 weeks. Ideally, clients are encouraged to return for a facial once every 3-4 weeks, and the average cost is $150-$180 for an hour – hour and a half facial.
This unique and luxurious treatment infuses collagen and elastin nano-molecules into skin. The result is younger and suppler skin after just one treatment with natural dry-freeze collagen sheet masks. For the best results, choose German masks which are made from the highest quality medical-grade freeze-dried insoluble collagen fibers. It's also preferable to have fragrance-free, hypoallergenic products, to avoid any reaction. These masks come dry, are soaked with an activator solution, and then molded to the face for 20 minutes.
Cleanse the face with a gentle milky cleanser. To hydrate aging skin, it’s advised to use a mild, fragrance-free cleanser based on aloe vera, chamomile, and vitamin E. Remove the cleanser with warm water thoroughly.
Mix a ½ teaspoon of Enzyme Mask with warm water to make a soft paste. Apply EnzymeMask to the whole face for 10 minutes. Turn on the steam and the ozone, and point to the client's face, so the mask stays moist, and the enzymes are active. If you don't have a steamer, use a moist hot towel over the Enzyme mask to keep it from drying up. This mask is based on bentonite clay, oats, and pineapple enzymes, which exfoliate and cleanse out the pores. Enzyme Mask is perfect before extractions. Remove Enzyme Mask with warm water.
1.Perform light manual extractions, if the client has congested pores. Change tissues often to prevent the spread of bacteria.
2.Apply a fragrance-free massage crème and perform European massage. This type of facial massage tones the muscles and stimulates the blood circulation. Remove the massage crème.
3. Hyaluronic acid ampoules are perfect to use with collagen infusion therapy under the pure collagen masks. Wrap the top of the ampoule with a tissue, and snap it open. Apply 1/3 of the ampoule to the palm of your hand, and then to the client’s face, especially to wrinkle-prone areas.
4.Spray the face with pure collagen-elastin liquid. This product serves as an activator for the collagen mask, as well as a light, oil-free hydrator.
5.Fold the mask in half over the client’s face, mark and cut the mask around the nose area. Apply the dry collagen mask immediately over the face quickly and spray with more pure collagen elastin liquid, molding gently to the face and neck with sponges.
6.Slide over the neck and face with a galvanic machine (+) upward to increase absorption for the first 10 minutes. Allow 10 minutes for the active soluble collagen to penetrate by osmosis. Leave mask on the face for no less than 20 minutes. Remove the mask.
7.Apply a peptide moisturizer to the whole face.
8.Spray with sunscreen.
