Lighten your look to complement the season. What we wear often reflects the mood of the season, and make-up is no exception! So, put away your opaque heavy make-ups.
Make-up trends this season are decidedly low maintenance with touches of fun bright colors. The overall look is soft, sheer and playful. This season is a great time to simplify beauty routines so come in to A.F. Bennett and have one of our talented make-up technician’s help you start the New Year off right.

In massage cupping (a modified version of cupping therapy), we use a manual vacuum by placing a cup on the body and “pump” to remove the air inside the cup. There are two techniques: one stationery and one moving. In stationary, the cup is left over knots or inflamed joints and tissues. In moving cups, the strong vacuum mimics the rolling action of deep tissue massage. Skin will redden and strong massage cupping indication circulation has been brought to the surface. The increased local blood supply will nourish the muscles and allows toxins to be flushed out. The sensation of cupping has been described as deep warmth, tingling long after the toxin has ended. The movement may be long and draining or circular and stimulating.
Massage Cupping is also effective in treating cellulite. A heavier application can be used to stimulate circulation and loosen dimpling. The light suction helps with fluid retention and drainage. The thigh/butt/hip should be treated prior to body service to enhance longer lasting results.
