Health & Beauty

A new place to be pampered

ZaZa nail salon has officially opened its doors on Perkins Road. The salon, which has a chic and modern atmosphere, uses all natural products and offers clients nail and waxing services, as well as eyelash extensions. Customers can book appointments online. The salon also accepts group bookings, including bridal appointments, for parties of five or more.

For nourished lips

To protect your lips this winter, Eyes, Lips, Face—a company known as e.l.f.—has you covered. Its Studio Lip Exfoliator does the job to keep your lips from being chapped. Some ingredients—vitamin E, shea butter, avocado, and grape and jojoba oils—work to condition them, yet like any exfoliator, the product also removes excess skin, leaving your lips feeling smooth and refreshed. Find it online or at a local Target.
