When owner Erica Cerpa needs to restock EC Beauty Studio’s supplies, she shops for pure seaweed, omega-3, hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, and vitamins A, C, and F. Cerpa favors these ingredients for the benefits they provide: seaweed eliminates toxins; omega-3 regulates oil production; acids exfoliate dead cells; and vitamins balance tone. Several other botanical ingredients make their way into facials, which are personalized for each person’s skin type. In addition to working at the studio, Cerpa travels to homes, offices, and pillow forts, offering on-location services such as airbrush tanning and spa parties. Cerpa also amplifies the volume and length of natural lashes with individually applied synthetic eyelash extensions.
