Chicago-based skincare guru Leah Chavie says she’s either tried or been exposed to every skincare line under the sun. A perfectionist, she finally decided to formulate her own line. “I wanted a collection that would protect the integrity of the skin as well as repair and restore,” she says. “I partnered with a dermatologist out of the University of Miami to create a simple, affordable and effective line. Leah Chavie Skincare is a scientifically derived, preventative and corrective treatment protocol line designed to ensure the best skin you can reveal.” Starting at just $28, there are 15 anti-aging products, 14 acne-treating items and four treatments for redness and rosacea. They’re gentle enough for everyday use, and some client favorites

include the Green Tea Antioxidant Serum, which soothes and calms acne-prone skin, as well as the Acai Moisturizing Mist, which helps skin rebound from the effects of stress. Products are available at Leah Chavie Skincare Boutique (2457 North Halsted) in Lincoln Park and online at  http://www.leahchavie.com/shop.
