2. Skin Care: Leah Chavie Skincare Boutique (Latest in Skincare)
I didn’t know what to expect when I entered Leah Chavie- a unique skin care center and I was very impressed with how I was greeted and taken care of.

The Chicago-based beauty-preneur launched a namesake mineral makeup line this summer, so we dug a little deeper and found out…
“Mineral powder lays on the skin and allows it to breath and function normally. It’s weightless coverage will still look flawless even if you feel like a sweaty mess. Minerals are also anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and have a natural SPF.”
