Your Melt Team travelled to New York City for a Team Trip to attend the International Esthetics Show — Unfortunately, after an increase in cases of COVID-19 the show was cancelled, but we made the most of our Team Trip regardless! Due to our international travels, we have decided under the recommendation of the Ministry of Health to close the Spa during our self isolation. For some, this would drive them stir crazy — we have come up with some tips to make the best of isolation!

Here's a little insight to Friday mornings at Melt...
Every Friday morning at 9am, all of the Melt Partners meet for a weekly meeting to touch base and watch one of Zane's famous videos. Most of these videos are Ted Talks - some sort of motivational speaker or something that we can relate into our lives and workplace. We do try to limit Zane to a 15 minute video (Friday mornings seem early for this young group of women), but once in awhile we allow him to extend beyond if he promises the video is really good! 🙂
The 2014 commencement speech of Admiral William McRaven at the University of Texas is one of our favs, and one of the few videos we appreciate being replayed on multiple Friday mornings. The one part that sticks with everyone after watching the full video is just simply about making your bed in the morning... Now how many of you make your bed? We promise not to judge (maybe), but it is such an EASY task! The simplest, first task of the day - and has a domino effect on your entire day!
The following quote of the video is a sure eye opener -
"If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day,'' he said. "It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task, and another, and another. And by the end of the day that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed. Making your bed will also reinforce the fact that the little things in life matter. If you can't do the little things right, you'll never be able to do the big things right. And if by chance you have a miserable day, you will come home to a bed that is made — that you made. And a made bed gives you encouragement that tomorrow will be better."
Now if just this doesn't make you want to start making your bed in the morning, you can watch the full commencement speech. Coming from a place of self care, not only do we advise you to come in for our luxurious full range of services, we recommend you start the day off by making your bed!
Can't function without coffee? No problem - you don't have to feel bad with these caffeine skincare perks!!
1) Soothes Redness and Inflammation: Caffeine possesses anti-inflammatory properties (restricts blood vessels and improves circulation) that help in reducing the inflammation and redness in your skin.
2) Cellulite: When presented in skincare products, caffeine can dehydrate fatty cells - which results in the water disappearing from the surface of the skin, minimizing the appearance of cellulite and providing you with smoother skin.
3) Under Eye Circles: Although caffeine cannot cure hereditary under eye circles, it can help reduce puffiness and inflammation as well as reduce the accumulation of blood underneath the eyes which attribute to dark circles.
Quick Tip ** Tea leaves contain caffeine - applying moist tea bags underneath your eyes for 5 minutes can reduce dark circles and puffiness while being cost effective!
4) Free Radicals: Free radicals are the leading cause of premature aging that result in fine lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity. The antioxidants in caffeine can help fight these free radicals and eliminate them, which will improve the overall appearance of your skin.
5) UV Damage: Studies have shown that caffeine can aid in repair to the skin damage caused by exposure to UV rays, it is among the strongest antioxidants (even considered a stronger antioxidant than green tea) to help with UV damage.
You no longer have to feel guilty with that morning cup (or five) of coffee, you are one step closer to skin care perfection!

We are so excited to introduce to you our new, fully organic skincare line: BioTense! If you didn’t catch our last post, BioTense is fully organic, gluten free, vegan, non GMO, recyclable and cruelty free. Using only the best ingredients certified under COSMOS standards, this line is designed to give you luxurious skincare and anti-aging benefits. It is hypoallergenic, ultra hydrating and ideal for even the most sensitive skin types. You’re going to love it!
This line has three amazing cleansers in it. A cleansing milk, foaming gel, and micellar foam. The BioTense cleansing milk is great for superficial cleansing. It gently removes surface oils, makeup, and impurities, while gently regenerating the skin. The BioTense foaming gel thoroughly cleanses the skin on a deeper level. It transforms with water from a gel to an oxygenated foam, all while respecting the skins pH. Lastly, the BioTense micellar foam is a 2 in 1 cleanser/toner duo, ideal for people on the go. Both the BioTense cleansing milk and foaming gel should be followed with the BioTense pH toner to balance and protect the skin.
Next, our BioTense gommage is a staff favourite exfoliant! This exfoliant refines, illuminates, and oxygenates the skin while thoroughly removing dead skin cells, toxins, and environmental pollution in less than 3 minutes. All while restoring the skins natural glow.
BioTense has a couple specialty treatments, too, the extract and serum. The BioTense serum is a revolutionary concentrate used on the face and neck that defies time and gravity to restore youth and vitality to the skin. The tensing effect is guaranteed from the first application, and forms an invisible veil that redefines the face and smooths the skin. The BioTense extract was specifically formulated to meet the needs of mature, devitalized and dry skin. It is moisturizing, regenerating, and replenishing. It restores the skins lipid barrier and accelerates cell renewal.
The BioTense cream is a spectacular treatment that targets mature skin with fine likes and lack of firmness. It creates an instant lifting effect, and contains a potent blend of hyaluronic acid to lift and firm the skin deeply.
The BioTense eye contour gel is the essential treatment for the eye contour area. It reduces fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles. It creates a true ‘radiance boost’. The ultra-fresh gel forms a dermal remodelling veil on the surface of the skin that refines the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while instantly lifting the upper eyelid.
Our BioTense mask is a super moisturizing treatment for all skin types, even the most sensitive. It naturally rebalances and evens out the complexion. This formula is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, amino acids and essential oils. Ideal to rejuvenate and give a radiant glow.
Last, but definitely not least, the Mineral SPF30 sunscreen. It offers anti aging sun protection with 100% mineral based zinc and titanium, providing the skin with a high level of protection against UVA, UVB, and free radicals. Its non greasy and full coverage texture is slightly tinted to blend perfectly with all skin tones.
We know that you’re going to love these products as soon as you try them. Join us at our All Natural Beauty Open House on Thursday, October 5th to learn more about this fabulous product line!
Finding high quality products that are both effective and safe can be tricky. Most people want to use a ‘natural’ or ‘organic’ product, but don’t really know what that means. Companies are experts at marketing to these unknowing people, and there are lots of loopholes and words that can be misleading. At Melt, we’re not into tricking people. We decided to write this post to clarify exactly what you’re buying, and make sure you get only the best.
When you’re looking at buying cosmetics and skincare, you’re most likely being bombarded with words like: natural, organic, paraben free, sulphate free, etc. It’s hard to know exactly what to go for. Most people associate organic quality with USDA. While USDA standards are great in the American food industry, you really want to look for EcoCert on cosmetic and skincare products. EcoCert is an organic certification organization, founded in France in 1991. It conducts inspections in over 80 countries, and is one of the worlds largest organic certification organizations. Good news for you: all the Nelly DeVuyst products at Melt are EcoCert certified! That means that all the ingredients are derived rom renewable resources, and manufactured by environmentally friendly processes. This standard, guarantees there are no GMO’s, parabens, artificial perfumes, silicon, or animal derived ingredients aside from milk or honey. There’s also a lot of other nasty, big name chemicals left out. Being certified as an EcoCert organic product also means that there’s at least 95% plant based ingredients in the formula. A ‘natural’ product is only required to have 50% plant based ingredients, scary! In addition, all companies manufacturing EcoCert products are subject to onsite audits to be sure these standards are being met.
COSMOS is the next step up from EcoCert. COSMOS (meaning cosmetic organic standard), was formed by EcoCert in France, along with organic standardization groups in Germany, Italy, and Great Britain, and is currently based out of Belgium (NDV’s original birthplace!). Cosmos was started to safeguard to cosmetic industry, the environment, and the people using the products. They are pushing for an even more natural and organic standard. COSMOS is subject to even more rigid ingredient standards and more frequent manufacturer audits. Along with the products themselves being organic, even the packaging is different. Of course, it is all recyclable, but even the labels and ink are vegetable based and biodegradable. Everything from the soil the ingredients are grown in, the process of active ingredient extraction, and the bottle sitting on your counter, are all top-of-the-line quality.
All of us at Melt are concerned about you, our extended family, being happy, healthy, and beautiful. That’s why we’re excited to bring you BioTense by Nelly DeVuyst. The very first full skincare product line certified internationally under COSMOS. Check back next week for a full description of the line, and stop into Melt Mineral Spa for a complimentary sample of our new Mineral SPF sunscreen.
