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.
