Holiday Beauty

The scent of crisp peppermint and a large family meal complete with a side of cranberry sauce are quintessential holiday traditions.
Did you know these beloved flavors can also give you beautiful skin?
Peppermint oil is easy to find and we love using it in our facials come the holiday season. You can also use it in a variety of treatments at home. Mix peppermint oil with a base oil like grape seed oil, or jojoba, and apply it to your skin. The menthol in peppermint helps cool your face and reduce redness.
Mint also has a naturally high content of solicylic acid, which is used in many skin care products. The acid softens and loosens dry skin as well as unclog pores.
Cranberries are naturally rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin K and plenty of other antioxidants, which will keep your skin looking healthy and even decrease dark circles. This power-packed berry also acts as a natural toner, and when combined with moisture-rich honey and yogurt, creates a soothing mask.


Festive Body Scrubs at Leah Chavie Skincare Boutique

With the weather starting to get a tad chilly in Chicago, I can’t think of a better way to escape from the cold than from a day of pampering at Leah Chavie Skincare Boutique in Lincoln Park. Whether you’ve read about her treatments in magazines or seen Leah in action on TV, you know that she must be the real deal.  The boutique offers variety of services that are unique to the boutique. For my day of pampering, I received the cranberry mint body scrub. Leah Chavie has added the cranberry element to her scrubs to include the benefits of antioxidants. Antioxidants are beneficial for a variety of reasons when it comes to skincare. They tighten and firm the skin reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Even though wrinkles aren’t something I’m particularly worried about right now, it’s good to have firm skin especially when exposed to other elements like harsh weather that can affect that elasticity.

Orginially published on in November 2014 written by Jenny Muslin
As the seasons change, your beauty regimen should change too.
Your skin may crave a heavier moisturizer due to dryness from the colder temperatures. Or your makeup colors may shift from pastels and brights to jewel tones and deep berry shades. We scored some one-on-one time with industry experts to find out their best seasonal beauty tips.
Should we change our products with the change in season?
“Yes! Listen to your skin; it knows what it needs. Many people stick to the same skincare routine every day, but your skin changes daily, like the weather.
