For the better part of a decade, Zaynab Alkaabi has removed unwanted facial hair through threading?an ancient practice which involves deftly twisting thread and running it across the face, thus removing targeted hair at the root. Threading, which can be advantageous for patrons with sensitive skin, allows Alkaabi to expertly shape brows and evict hair from the face without the use of harsh chemicals.
Free of parabens, dyes, and other chemicals, Pure SKN's cosmetics and skincare products are as unadulterated as fresh snowfall. That's because the company's line of blushes, lipsticks, eye shadows, and moisturizers are made exclusively from natural ingredients, such as red rooibos tea from South Africa and crushed minerals imported from Germany (though the products are actually manufactured in Michigan).
The organic nature of the products has been appealing; the line is available at retailers throughout the Midwest, and it has attracted customers to the company's services, which range from spray tanning to makeup and eyelash-extension applications. For aspiring models and people who want to produce illegal stamps with their faces on them, there's even a headshot package that includes makeup and hairstyling.
