This weekend is chock-full of fun and fashionable things to do, so if you’re itching to hit the town, these events will keep you busy!
Skin Boutique Hosts Skincare Class
Skincare is (usually) the first the thing you do in the morning and the last thing you do at night, for good reason, and from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, September 25, Skin Boutique is offering a Skincare Class. If you’d like a little more knowledge of what to do when you wake up in the morning and go to bed at night, this is place to learn it. You will learn about the importance of good morning and evening skincare regimens, the best face wash for different skin types and age, and what a beneficial nighttime skincare routine looks like. Then, Skin Boutique will have Q&A for every skin care question rolling around in your head.
More information can be found at www.skinboutiquexperts.com. Skin Boutique is located at 33226 Woodward Ave., in Birmingham.
