Book yourself a little TLC

One of the most requested skin treatments of 2019, dermaplaning is trending in the beauty department and will leave your face ultra-smooth and glowing!  Christine Catanese, esthetician at Nurture Salon and Spa, specializes in this treatment and it can be combined with a hydrating mask, a peel or an anti-aging facial.  “It’s a great service to do before a special event.  Your makeup will go on super smooth afterwards and your skin looks amazing,” says Catanese.  Get more details here and book your appointment.
