For a healthy treatment that gives skin a radiant, natural look, consider a traditional European facial, available at DeAmour Salon in Millburn. Esthetician Renee Rudikh, formerly the lead esthetician at standard-setting Georgette Klinger, says, “An old-school facial, in the style of Helena Rubenstein, will add vibrance to the face, neck and decolletage. Everyone deserves nourishing skincare, especially when the seasons change.” This 90-minute treatment, which helps correct and maintain skin, includes exfoliation, steam, deep cleansing, mask and hydration to promote a clearer, younger-looking complexion.

Zap away those nasty little veins behind your knees during lunch hour. Sclerotherapy, a fancy name for this minimally invasive vein treatment, is a bit of medical magic. “Just a few injections can make spider veins vanish for up to a year or more,” says New Jersey Monthly top doctor Michael Ombrellino of the Vein Institute of New Jersey at the Cardiovascular Care Group. Although some experience almost immediate effects, it’s best to have this treatment several weeks before you plan to show off your beach-worthy gams.

A 60- to 90-minute visit to the new BLVD salon at Neiman Marcus Short Hills can yield a fun, fresh summertime look. Whether you treat yourself to flirty cat-eye lashes, oh-so-subtle eyelash extensions, or something in between, the experts at Pucker can adhere between 80 and 100 synthetic lashes to each eyelid to give you more dazzling peepers. “We take pride in using only the highest quality lashes from Sugarlash,” says beauty technician Erika Gerner. “And to keep your lash extensions lustrous, we recommend having them refilled every two to three weeks.” Pucker also offers top-of-the-line makeup services.
