We enhance the skin care specialty course with field trips to the International Dermal Institute where professional aestheticians perform demonstrations and give lectures utilizing Dermalogica products. A wellness trip is organized to discuss the mind/body connection and the benefits of healthy eating and exercise. Students travel to makeup counters at Sephora, Lush, Bare Minerals, and Nordstrom in the Cherry Hill Mall where they learn product knowledge and discuss price points. Students also travel to a medical spa to learn about career opportunities in that avenue of the industry.
PB boasts a full-service spa that is open to the public. Skin care specialty students train under the supervision of licensed New Jersey Skin Care Educators and use Dermalogica skin care products and Ofra Cosmetics, which are also available for sale.
