Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

I Do Faces Etc
Time travel might be technologically impossible, but the aestheticians at I Do Faces Etc have their own ways of turning back the clock. With an emphasis on restoring youthful radiance to clients' complexions, the team uses a number of classic as well as cutting-edge spa procedures to conceal signs of aging skin. Facials can cleanse and pamper the skin or treat the symptoms of acne, and advanced aesthetic technologies help produce results beneath the surface, as well. LED light therapy boosts the production of skin-firming collagen, microcurrent systems improve circulation and overall skin health, and pressurized oxygen treatments more efficiently deliver antioxidant- and vitamin-rich serums into the skin. Even with this focus on undoing the effects of aging, I Do Faces Etc pampers and indulges its clients with therapeutic massages that are more relaxing than a nap in a kiddie pool full of shaving cream.
