Le Petite Skin Retreat opens in South of Fifth

The lowdown: Want to banish bad skin forever? Try facials at newly opened Le Petite Skin Retreat. Owner Lauren Anavim, along with her team, offers facials, nail services, makeup application and massages in a boutique-style setting. “Our pedicure chairs are jetless with disposable liners preventing any cross contamination,” Anavim says.

The ‘hood: Alongside the Miami Beach Marina in the South of Fifth neighborhood, Le Petite Skin Retreat offers ocean views.

The vibe: “Soothing shades of aqua and white make you feel completely surrounded by water creating an immediate calming effect,” Anavim says.

The highlights: Kick back and relax with Eminence Organic Skin Care specialist Suzanne Barroso’s 75-minute facial ($150) with a focus on anti-aging treatments, including LED and micro current. Manicures and pedicures are $55, brow-shaping, including threading, tweezing or waxing, $35, and a one-hour deep-tissue sports massage is $100.

‘Downton Abbey’: A more stylish Lady Edith Crawley (Laura Carmichael) is emerging in Season 4.


    ‘Downton’ costumers transform Lady Edith

    Poor, sad Lady Edith. Early on in Downton Abbey, the PBS Masterpiece Classic family saga, it seemed that the much-overlooked, undervalued middle sister of the Crawley clan had been dealt a bad hand. Her assertive nose, wan manner and decorously dowdy wardrobe had apparently rendered her marriage prospects slim to nil. Be kind to her; she has so few advantages, her mother urges Edith’s sister Mary. To which Mary peevishly replies that Edith has none at all.
