Practice makes perfect when it comes to playing a sport, writing in cursive, or shooting an arrow into an apple on someone's head. Encourage proper practice with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of student-performed skin and salon services at G Skin & Beauty Institutes. This Groupon is valid at four locations: G Skin & Beauty Institute on Michigan Avenue in Chicago, Naperville Skin Institute in Naperville, G Skin & Beauty Institute in Oak Brook, and Hair/Skin Professionals Academy in West Dundee.
At the G Skin & Beauty Institutes, students working under the supervision of licensed instructors beautify bodies and tousle tresses at discounted rates. Soothe sun-damaged, age-affected, or milk-mustache-mauled skin with the 60-minute therapeutic facial, which includes a double-cleansing face massage; glycolic exfoliant; shoulder, neck, and face massage; soothing mask; and vitamin C hydration serum to help brighten skin ($24). The one-hour total body scrub combines the power of corn-cob powder and volcanic pumice to exfoliate and polish bodies to glowy glory ($24). Lumbars are lightly massaged in the 50-minute deep-cleansing back treatment ($24), which boosts circulation before cleansing, exfoliating, toning, and extracting hard-to-reach areas, while flaky trunks are masked, wrapped in hot towels, and moisturized to remove rough bark before being replanted in the Forest of Tender Torsos. Those looking to remove rogue uprisings of hair can take advantage of waxing services ($9+) or entrust head tresses to an array of salon services, including haircuts ($5), highlights ($38+), and single color ($25+). Fingers get gracious manicures ($9) to thank them for raising the roof on so many occasions, while pedicures ($15) treat toes so they don't get jealous of their upper body counterparts.
Services are performed by students under the supervision of a certified instructor.
G Skin & Beauty Institute
The aestheticians, hair stylists, and nail technicians at G Skin & Beauty Institute never work alone. As students at the beauty school, they tend to clients as part of their training, always under the watchful eye of an expert. Their comprehensive, supervised services range from haircuts, deep-conditioning, and relaxer treatments to microdermabrasion and complexion-brightening facials. They can also revitalize entire physiques with body wraps. Regardless of the treatment at hand, the team strives to incorporate organic and natural products whenever possible, rather than those made with extracts from the Little Shop of Horrors plant.
