Talk about living the high life. Chicago is a beer-drinker's paradise, so it's no wonder that one spa is introducing brewskis to skin care. Exsalonce spa's $75 Beer Enzyme Facial begins with a cold one, moves on to standards such as extractions, and moves on to incorporate an enzyme cream made from Miller High Life. (The local doctor who creates the cream insists that the champagne of beers has the highest number of enzymes. In your face, Old Style!)
My friend Kevin Aeh gave the facial a try and reports thusly: "Throughout the treatment, extra time is spent massaging the feet, hands and shoulders — which, combined with our subtle beer buzz, put us in a completely relaxed, trancelike state. After the hour-long service, our glowing, refreshed face was ready to hit the pub." I'll drink to that.
