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.
In honor of Women?s History Month, Groupon is celebrating an inspiring group of women: business leaders whose companies and brands enrich their communities. Thanks to the dedication and ingenuity of these leaders, local communities across the country are stronger and more diverse.

At Ferndale Relaxation Spa, massage therapists employ a holistic approach twice over, soothing the entire body with techniques from around the world. Beyond the traditional Western modalities, such as Swedish and hot stone, the indian head and neck massage calls upon ayurvedic-healing principles, and Chinese reflexology methods aim to boost the immune system during foot massages. Amid a bubbling fountain and soft music, the spa promotes relaxation with optional experiences such as rose petals scattered in candlelight or side-by-side massages for couples or presidential running mates.
At locations in Franklin, Royal Oak, and most recently Birmingham, experienced aestheticians dissolve stress with soothing massages, facials, and nail treatments that utilize fruit-infused scrubs or oils from Sacred Earth Botanicals. Inside private treatment rooms, techs evict toxins with Dead Sea mud or seaweed body wraps and knead knots into untied shoelaces with aromatherapy massages or therapeutic stretches. Treatments, including a slate of mani-pedis, come in various packages for half-day pampering sessions, with tasty add-ons such as a spa lunch or bubbly sips of champagne. Alternatively, the spa's concierge services take the pampering out of the spa and into the shells of stressed turtles or homes of customers, who may also request assistance with errands, laundry, and grocery pick-up.
At Le Serenity Day Spa, the staff of trained muscle melters doles out massage treatments in modalities determined by client needs, be they anything from pain relief to general relaxation. Soft strokes highlight the Swedish massage, which focuses on tensed up tendons, and massage therapists employ deep-tissue treatments to target hidden knots and aches residing far within the musculature depths. For an alternative to dates spent at the movies, dinner, or the podiatrist’s office, massage therapists can treat couples to tandem treatments that incorporate both therapeutic and romantic aspects. In addition to bodywork, Le Serenity Day Spa also offers hand and food scrubs, mani-pedis, facials, and special spa packages that combine several pampering services.
You can't cage Image Studio 3's savvy aestheticians: not only do they perform an extensive selection of spa services in the confines of their studio, but they also travel to beautify their clients on location anywhere in Oakland County. During their signature waxing treatments, a deft wax tech pulls away unwanted hair from faces, chests, backs, and dorsal fins. For a more relaxing session, the beauty-giver can dish out one of eight facials or six types of massage.
Schooled in styles such as Swedish, deep tissue, and prenatal, Natural Touch Massage's network of local massage therapists work out all manner of ache. The team soothes muscles and boosts flexibility during 30-, 60-, or 90-minute single or couples treatments. Situated throughout Detroit, the therapists' mobile services set up convenient sessions in homes, offices, or hotel rooms. They also host guests at the Natural Touch studio, where complementary muffins, bagels, tea, and juices await visitors before and after appointments. Along with massages, aestheticians beautify patrons with a slew of spa services such as facials, manicures, and foot scrubs, available for individual customers or large groups such as wedding parties or biker gangs that don’t feel as pretty as they used to.
