Harnessing ingredients extracted from the Dead Sea alongside aromatic oils and herbal extracts, Deep Sea Cosmetics concocts a line of products that heal and invigorate the face, the body, and the hands. Quench dry skin with a moisturizing cream that salvages brittle facescapes with aloe vera, vitamin E, and Dead Sea minerals ($59.95), or shuck off dead skin cells with a relaxing salt scrub that exfoliates birthday leisure suits and adds zest to any bathtub stew ($49.95). The fingertip-pampering nail kit transforms talons into shiny, shapely keratin exemplars with a nail file, cuticle conditioner, and body-and-hand lotion ($44.95).
At Animus CrossFit/Corporal CrossFit, students of every skill level, age, and body type can take control of their health with the help of encouraging coaches. The team of qualified trainers draw on intense training experiences in their own lives, such as strength coach and author Carlos Arias's service in the USMC special forces, his wife Jenny's background as a gymnast, or coach Dayron Castaneda's career in collegiate football. The team prides itself on providing one-on-one training and keeping classes small: staff lead premium CrossFit with 1:8 teacher/student ratios, avoiding the overcrowded classes, lack of equipment, and gym-clothes sharing seen in traditional programs. And indoor-outdoor bootcamp classes take advantage of sunny Miami days while avoiding wet ones by training indoors on grass turf or rubber flooring. The small, 16-person classes tailor exercise individually according to skill level and keep things interesting with a combination of gymnastics and running using balls and ropes.
Students shed pounds and tone muscles in programs that are built on proper nutrition and individual, scalable workout routines. Whether pupils are burning fat and building endurance with cardio routines and kettlebells, boosting strength with weightlifting, or refining their running techniques with pose running, coaches work closely with students to help them push past obstacles and reach health goals.
Nail services take the spotlight at Aurora Nail Spa where aestheticians wrap hands in warm towels, massage arms and feet, and polish nails with a kaleidoscope of colors. They also outfit digits with artificial acrylic, gel, silk, and minx nails. Eyelash extensions using Xtreme Lashes and massage treatments round out the spa’s indulgent offerings.
At The Glam Bar & Lash Lounge, owner and licensed aesthetician Atara Dallas beautifies clients with eyelash extensions that come in more than 30 unique combinations of thickness, length, and curls. Atara uses Xtreme Lash brand extensions that are affixed to natural lashes with a medical-grade, latex-free adhesive. Beyond the two degrees of curl, three thicknesses, and seven lengths, clients can customize their look with add-ons such as eyebrow tinting and colored lashes designed to enchant disinterested chameleons.
Just as its name promises, Xtension Xpress is dedicated to quickly giving guests longer, fuller locks.
