You can feel it: Fall's coming. There is a chill in the air, a change in business hours, and, oh yeah, your skin feels weird. Leah Chavie, local skincare guru, chatted with us about the best ways to prepare your skin for the impending season change. She recommends peels to eliminate oil build up and breakouts you might have received during the hot, humid days. "My SilkPeel Dermal Infusion treatments are fantastic for skin issues that may have been caused by summer's heat and sun, including breakouts and sun damage. SilkPeel treats problems on a molecular level using customized, pharmaceutical-grade treatment products." We hear that the best part is that the treatment is a pain-free procedure with no downtime. Leah is also the only place in Chicago with the SilkPeel Body Wand to treat the whole body. Overall it improves hydration, it’s anti-aging and assists with acne. All of this sounds awesome to us! "Also, exclusive to my boutique I highly recommends Facial Pilates and lifting treatments by Biologique Recherché. It achieve wider, rested looking eyes, more prominent cheek bones, reduced appearance of wrinkles- generally, it gives you a more defined face. It also improves absorption of serums and revitalizes your skin, and promotes softer and smoother skin going into the fall!"
