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.

The owner of III Phases of Beauty Spa spent years feeling the frustration of inadequate salons: stylists who didn't meet her needs and companies not standing by their services. So she did something about it. She created III Phases of Beauty to revolve around each client that walks through her door.
Inside the sun-soaked, minimalist studio, her stylists create looks that flatter, drawing from a menu of facials, waxing services, and other spa treatments. They even customize princess and tutu parties for children to help little girls live their dreams of performing as a ballerina or introducing legislation in the House of Commons. But the specialty of III Phases of Beauty is perhaps their hair extensions. Stocks of un-processed Peruvian, Malaysian, and Brazilian hair can grant anyone a brand new look.
At a juice and smoothie bar located just inside the Pure BDY fitness-training studio, baristas blend fresh concoctions inspired by owner Robyn Milewski’s specialty juice cleanses. Fresh fruits and vegetables meld into invigorating purees with names such as Lean Green—kale, spinach, parsley, and apple—and Good Morning—orange, carrot, and ginger. Using everything from almond milk to oatmeal, smoothies either make sweet vegan-friendly snacks or incorporate pack protein-rich formulas designed for sustaining the body before or after workouts. In either case, customers can always design their own recipes for juices or smoothies, tinkering with Pure BDY's ingredients to find just the right thing to fill the truck's radiator.
The muscular trainers that lead the variety of fitness programs at TV Fitness—Ryan and Earl Carruthers—know that every person who walks through their doors does so with their own set of challenges and goals. To help accommodate guests of all fitness levels, the duo offers a wide lineup of fitness programs at their gym. Most of their programs focus on interval training, using the high intensity moves to spike the metabolism, make uncomfortable fat cells cry sweat, and help guests burn fat for hours after exercising.
At Claddagh Chiropractic Wellness Center, board-certified Doctors of Chiropractic Bridget Devlin and Timothy Murray may prescribe a wide variety of spinal adjustment treatments, such as corrective exercises and massage therapy.

In addition to pain treatment, doctors also promote overall wellness with preventive care for all ages.
Spa-a-Peel’s sign says it’s “the look fabulous studio,” though the offerings within its peaceful confines go much deeper. Upon entering, clients are greeted by a smiling staff member who stands ready to help clients transform their day with a massage, a facial, or a mani-pedi. On top of that, treatments at Spa-a-Peel transport guests away from the daily grind and into a place of relaxation and bliss that feels like home, but with a far more talented staff.
