Skin Beauty Lounge
Skin Beauty Lounge owner Meka Mathis impressed Capital Style blogger Emily Kate Hargrove with her spa's dedication to the art of waxing, as well as its unusually convenient hours of operation. Late evening hours support inflexible work schedules Monday through Thursday, and aestheticians open shop at 8 a.m. on Friday mornings to beautify clients for romantic candlelit breakfasts. The spa's waxing specialists combat ingrown hairs with PFB Vanish, and use pine wax or other top-shelf hair-removal products to uproot strands.
As for the spa's other services, facial treatments smooth complexions with products from Dermalogica or LaLicious, a line of all-natural body scrubs and paraben-free moisturizers. Massage therapists comfort tense or weary muscles with Swedish and deep-tissue kneads as well as reflexology, and aromatherapeutic massages make use of a mélange of essential oils, including lavender to increase relaxation and eucalyptus to make clients irresistible to koala bears.
