1 - 3 Gem-Infused Beauty Treatments
Sine Qua Non salons offer a gemstone blowout for radiant hair.

Diamond Facial at The Spa @ Equinox
The Spa @ Equinox’s latest signature treatment is infused with platinum powder and silver to make your skin as radiant as a diamond. The platinum powder locks in moisture and enhances skin’s self-defense, while the silver works as an anti-bacterial agent and promotes circulation. Other ingredients—vitamin B3, marine collagen, and aloe barbadensis among them—strengthen and heal skin, and diminish signs of aging. The 50-minute treatment leaves your face feeling revitalized, and looking just as gorgeous as its namesake jewel. $225. 900 N. Michigan Ave., 312-254-2500

Gemstone Blowout at Sine Qua Non
Sine Qua Non Chicago recently launched its new Blowout Boost Menu, a trio of treatment add-on options to extend the life of your blowout. While each boasts benefits, it’s the rare gemstone blend we’re most excited about. The stylist uses a mix of pearl, tourmaline, Brazilian green malachite, and sapphire—along with Bb Straight Blow Dry Balm—to loosen waves, tame frizz, and leave hair soft and shiny. The boost is a luxe treat for any hair type, but especially ideal for curly, thick, coarse, or unmanageable strands. Available on Thursdays, $35. 3417 N. Lincoln Ave., 773-404-8789

White Diamond and Organic Flower Microdermabrasion at Mario Tricoci
This treatment at Mario Tricoci replaces the aluminum crystals typically used in microdermabrasion treatments with a diamond tip, which allows for adjustments in the exfoliation level to better cater to each person’s skin type. The process also includes an exfoliation using customized organic flower matter: lavender for more sensitive skin, rose to rejuvenate drier skin, or tea tree for oily skin. No matter which customization best fits your skin type, the combination treatment brings a radiant, wrinkle-free glow to your face immediately. $175. 900 N. Michigan Ave., 847-202-1900
