The teal-tinged walls of SunTraders Tanning Company, reminiscent of the softly lapping waters of a secluded beach, discreetly conceal the salon’s professional tanning equipment. Level 1, 2, and 3 beds evenly bronze skin and dimes trying to pass as pennies in succinct, 9- to 20-minute sessions. SunTraders also houses a Mystic Tan booth, which disperses three levels of sunless-tanning solution through a fine nozzle, ensuring even, full-body coverage.

International Day Spa has been supplying Redlands-area pamperistas with relaxing and beautifying treatments for more than 21 years. In the Massage à Trois service, couples take turns receiving one-hour Swedish/American massages. The partner not currently receiving the massage is encouraged to participate with the therapist, learning techniques that can be used at home or at stressful youth soccer games. After both partners have received their massage, couples are invited to relax in the Turkish steam room, attacking their already weakened stress levels with an assault of vapors and withering criticism. Solo spa goers can opt instead to partake of the spa’s other services, including hot-stone massage ($95+), facials (generally $45–$235), and hydrotherapy services, such as aromatherapy body buffing or salt glow with a relaxing Vichy shower ($55).

Q&A with Denise Horton, Owner And Educator
Do you offer your customers any extra perks?
We have no set procedure because every client's skincare needs will vary with each appointment. As the skin changes, so will the treatment.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
Helping people understand the importance of good skincare and how it can positively effect their well-being.
The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
My objective is to offer a soothing environment while providing time for clients to relax and rejuvenate the mind, body, and spirit.
With 18 years of experience, the aestheticians at Pure: Organic Skincare Studio turn to nature for their inspiration as well as for their tools, relying on organic products whenever possible. Their dedication to natural ingredients might explain why skin of all types takes so readily to their pore-cleansing facials, streak-free airbrush bronzers, and vitamin-infused enzyme peels. Moisturizing skin treatments eschew parabens and chemical additives in favor of fruit oils; in a similar vein, waxing treatments swipe away hair with the help of sticky fruit rolls. Promoting a tranquil atmosphere of privacy and comfort, customers enjoy services with candle light and soothing eucalyptus aromas while receiving care full customized to suit their needs.
At Renew Face and Body, licensed massage therapists and estheticians help to lift stress from minds and rejuvenate skin with soothing massages and skin treatments. Gentle strokes melt tension in backs and necks, while waxing, customized facials, and paraffin hand treatments keep skin supple and smooth.
