The relaxing session begins with deep pore cleansing, followed by exfoliation, extractions, and a face, neck, and shoulder massage. Guests are also treated to an application of a variety of Guinot skincare products. During the pampering, hands are swaddled in warm, hydrating mitts.

Katerina Mathias aims to show each client their true potential. She uses chemical peels, diamond microdermabrasion, and other skin care therapies to bring out the best in each person's skin. She also uses professional skin care products, as well as organic, custom-made masks and oils. Clients leave her spa with glowing complexion, nourished skin, and clear pores.

But what qualifies Katerina as a skincare expert? The answer is twofold, spanning both formal and personal experience. First, she earned a bachelor's degree in organic chemistry, receiving institutional confirmation of her enzymatic and molecular know-how. Next, after moving from Russia to the United States, Katerina became a mother. And although it was the textbooks that imparted stats about cells and atoms, it was her long hours as a new mom that drove home the need for quality self-care. "As a woman and a mother, I know it is not easy to break free and love yourself," she explains, "but once it happens, it starts a chain reaction that improves all aspects of life."

A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles. Personal spa assistants are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment.

Caramel wood tones swirl throughout Body & Sol Tanning's studio, modeling the hues customers adopt during UV bed sessions and UV-free airbrush appointments. With three levels of solar-simulation chambers, tanners spend between 2–15 minutes absorbing healthy amounts of light from fresh bulbs. Specialized facial lamps ensure that features receive an even coat, and lotions by Synergy Tan and JWoww help to stimulate bronzing while basting bodies with additional moisture. Body & Sol Tanning also offers professional airbrushing appointments, during which a trained professional applies an even mist to eliminate pale complexions and regrets of napping outside underneath a hammock.
