Artificial sweeteners. Crystal Light. Nose candy. Most things that come in powder form aren’t so good for your health (or self-respect).
A visit to Flourish Skin & Wax, aesthetician Andrea Mazzola’s brand new, one-woman studio on Union Street, might turn that theory upside down.
During her signature one-hour facials, Mazzola whips up customized potions for your skin type using both liquid and powder formulas from the medical-grade Osmosis line. She starts with a consultation, then concocts incredible masks that she gently massages into your skin. She might add Vitamin C powder to lift and brighten.
Afterward, your skin looks soft, supple, and glowing.
Which is nothing to sniff at.
