Health & Beauty neighborhood
CAP Beauty
238 W. 10th St., West Village
CAP stands for "clean and pure," which describes everything you'll find at this tightly curated shop in the West Village. The gang's all here as far as clean beauty brands go—they carry Kjaer Weis, Odacité, Tata Harper, and a great selection of dusts and potions from brands like Moon Juice, Four Sigma Foods, and Urban Moonshine. They're also known for excellent facials—for a holistic anti-aging package, look at the CAP Lift, a series of facial rejuvenation acupuncture treatments that takes place over several weeks.

Caudalie
315 Bleecker St., West Village
This family-owned beauty company was founded in Bordeaux, so their entire approach to beauty is grounded in a less-is-more, great-skin-first approach that feels very French. They're famous for a menu of super-relaxing facials—which can be selected to target anti-aging, radiance (and correcting), firming, moisture, and detoxification—but their New York boutiques also offer three body treatments, like a Bordeaux-inspired vine wrap. We're also partial to their express facials, which, at just a half hour, can easily be squeezed into a lunch break; pretty clutch for their new, office-convenient location in the Financial District .

Integral Yoga Institute NYC
227 W 13th St., West Village
This beloved neighborhood center for spiritual nourishment is connected to one of the best health-food stores in the West Village. Varied yoga classes take place in sun-filled studios, all with gorgeous wood floors—the vibe of the place is more beautifully rustic than polished: Yoga and Qigong focuses on harnessing energy to your advantage, while Yoga for Arthritic and Chronic Pain teaches self-soothing techniques.There are also incredible workshops (topics range from eye health to the importance of eating seasonally to how to how to give a Thai massage), and the wellness spa offers cranial therapy, acupuncture, myofascial release, spiritual counseling, and more—and there’s an excellent book alcove-boutique that sells blankets, stones, mats, and grounding yoga paraphernalia.

Jin Soon
23 Jones St., West Village
Jin Soon Choi, the fashion world's go-to for nails, has taken her tiny nail (and wax) salons to the next level. Each mani and pedi is more like a mini spa treatment for your hands and feet, with a menu of massages, essential oil and hydrating treatments to choose from. Her technicians are great, the space is lowkey, and blessedly low-tech (no vibrating massage chairs, here), and she has a five-free line of polishes, too (goop did a collab with her). There are also locations on the UES, in the East Village, and Tribeca.
