Jen and I enjoyed a day of pampering at Total Serenity Day Spa In Center City to put together the ultimate girls summer beauty guide. It’s a great time of year for ladies to treat themselves to some amazing services like facials and body wraps, so they can glow and look rejuvenated for the beach and great weather.
Jen sat down with nail expert Akua who recommends women try gel nails. Akua says it’s a safer and healthier alternative to acrylic nails, and it lasts for 2-3 weeks. Akua also says for general maintenance ladies should keep their nails filed and use cuticle oil. Right now blue and green are the hottest nail colors.
Owner Giovanni Scott pulled me into her facial room. She first showed me how painless waxing could be by using their special sugar wax on my arm. Sugar was requires no strips and once it leaves your skin feeling super smooth. Then Giovanni gave my face a fabulous glow by performing a C Blast facial. The process includes using light resurfacing of the skin with the mega peel system machine, applying vitamin C and then using glycolic acid. My face felt amazing afterwards.
And Jen tried something new and refreshing called a Marine Body Glow. Jose used special gloves to exfoliate and rub the dead skin off Jen’s body. Then he used a boar’s head brush to continue getting the dead skin cells off and then applied the body glow, which is made up of crushed crustaceans. Don’t worry it smells pleasant and not fishy, but does wonders for the body.
