When readers of Greenwich Magazine set out to name the best facial and waxing services in town, they chose Celia B. Skin Care. Since opening in 2004, the skincare center and its owner, Brazilian native Celia Brito, have earned those particular accolades on four separate occasions. Waxing services, which can be applied to a wide range of areas and are available in several packages, are made even more impressive with the optional sugaring: an alternative to waxing that produces the same results while being gentler, safer, and more familiar to the noses of giant ants. Celia B.'s signature facial combines European and Brazilian techniques, like a diplomatic mission for the skin, and the teen facial helps foster great skincare and hygiene habits.
