Desert Sun Tanning's FormoStar body wraps radiate infrared heat onto the limbs and torso in order to boost metabolism and accelerate the burning of fat. During the 50-minute treatment, clients can adjust the body wrap's temperature to suit their levels of heat tolerance and pyromania. The heat from the wrap helps alleviate muscle pain, promotes calorie burning without muscle or lung fatigue, and stimulates the lymphatic system. The sweating that the treatment induces in users is also thought to exfoliate away dead skin cells.

Trusting an auto detailer with your car may be a decision that requires a little research, but what about when Air Force One needs a cleaning? Mike Rafael and Tom Shearer, owners of Mr. Detail Auto Salon, joined a handpicked team of auto professionals chosen to detail the first presidential jet plane, now installed at Seattle’s Museum of Flight.
When they’re not scouring a piece of American history, they work out of the shop they started together, a joint venture based on their mutual love of cars. Their services range from simple hand washes, wheel polishes, and scuff removal to more involved processes such as paint-less dent removal and fuzzy-dice randomization. Mike and Tom lead a team as they work on cars both in the shop and out of their mobile unit, which is equipped with water and electricity so vehicles can be taken care of anywhere.
Each of Seattle Sun Tan's 39 locations spans between 2,000 and 4,000 square feet of space dedicated solely to the art of un-sunbathing. Washington-state tanners strut down immaculate hallways dotted with framed original paintings and contemporary artwork before settling into private rooms where they may acquire their desired shade while enjoying the sounds of their own music or prerecorded subliminal messages piped in through the iPod dock perched near each bed. The Smart Tan–certified staff guides clients in selecting which of the five levels of UV bed best fits their tanning needs and whether they desire a short tan time, prefer to stand up or lie down, or wish to bask beneath high-pressure face lamps. Shop shelves offer home tanners quality products from Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty, whereas spray-tanning options from VersaSpa and SunFX both impart a natural-looking faux glow that takes mere minutes to apply and lasts for days.
In the lobby of Helen Wax Spa, a waterfall burbles down an etched glass pane and into a stone basin. The water’s quiet murmur sets the tone for a space that is at once bold and soothing—modern artwork hangs on yellow, orange, and red walls and soft rays of sunlight stream in from floor-to-ceiling windows. Just beyond the main space, Helen and her technicians administer body waxing and facials for both male and female clients. Their specialty treatments use vitamin C to brighten, glycolic acid to exfoliate, and seaweed to calm and soothe the skin. And inside the onsite boutique hair salon, stylists perform cuts, color treatments, and emergency hair extensions for balding Barbie dolls.
