Summer in the City

Last Friday as my husband and I strolled down Walnut Street trying to burn off some calories from overindulging at Sansom Street Oyster House we came across a portrait in the making. A gorgeous bride posing for the photographer in front of Rittenhouse Square, wearing a wonderfully sumptuous creamy dress with the train swirling in front of her. She was flanked on either side by seven groomsmen, immaculately tuxedoed in black. Her bridesmaids all wore a vibrant shade of fuchsia which looks best on tanned skin, which they all had. As I watched them I wondered if they were spray tanned, sun tanned, self tanned? (Because that’s the way my esthetician mind works). Anyway, it struck me that as we creep toward the end of summer most skin can use a good professional body treatment, like a hydrating wrap. Wraps are great to remove the dry buildup that accumulates from too much sun exposure. And even if you are still beach bound on the weekends and determined to tan it up until October, it’s still a good idea right about now to give your skin a treat by sloughing away the old tan to make way for the new.

If taking time out for a body treatment cuts into your summer fun time then pop in to Rescue and pick up some body care from Lalicious. This product line has some of the most la luscious products ever. Body scrubs, cleansers and butters with names like Sugar Kissed and Vanilla Whipped that smell good enough to eat. And they make perfect gifts for your college freshman girls heading off to school. Put them in a cute basket (suitable for dorm room storage) and wait for the hugs.

 

 

Congratulations to my very talented, witty and beautiful client Gina Colantonio for, celebrating the two year mark for her very popular blog “Here Comes Gina”. This is my go to blog for hot picks from books to fashion to house wares but I only read it in private because she makes you laugh out loud.

Esthetician,
