The cuticle curators at Wet Paint Nail Spa transform hands and feet with their thorough manicure and pedicure services, catching the attention of Stuff Magazine, which bestowed the salon with the Best Claws award in 2010, and Boston.com, which honored them with the title of Best Mani/Pedi the same year. Calculate new digits with the classic manicure, which begins by subtracting cuticles and hangnails from finger equations. Hands achieve softness with a lotion-fueled massage and a dip in a bowl of duckling down before nails get coated with a choice of polish. Warm feet with a steamed-towel treatment during the classic pedicure, where technicians trim and shape toe talons back into calligraphy-writing condition. Dry, rough skin gets evicted with a thorough sole scrub, and cuticles will be tamed to make room for incoming polish deposits.

To call The Body Shop a mere skin and body care store is to miss half of what makes it special. Late founder Dame Anita Roddick was a pioneer for ethical business practices; upon opening her first store in Brighton, England, in 1976, she developed company values such as "Defend Human Rights" and "Protect The Planet." She somehow balanced principles and profit, partnering in global campaigns with UNICEF, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, all while ultimately expanding her brand into 2,500 locations in over 60 international markets. After her death in 2007, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, ?She campaigned for green issues for many years before it became fashionable to do so and inspired millions to the cause by bringing sustainable products to a mass market. . . . She was an inspiration.?

Indeed, the Body Shop exhibits an eco-friendliness and social consciousness that's hard to come by in a company of its size. Its products have been fair-trade since 1987, and its Against Animal Testing movement led to an EU-wide ban of animal testing of cosmetics. The products are made from ingredients harvested from around the world: shea butter from Ghana goes into body scrubs and butters, and Indian artisans craft wooden massagers and tote bags that are screenprinted by hand. But all that isn't to say the company's production practices overshadow its final products. Skincare treatments such as the brand?s iconic body butters, facial products, and gift collections often appear in Allure, Marie Claire, Lucky, Seventeen and other national publications.

The cosmetic clinicians at Essentially Bare rely on a combination of lasers and pharmaceutical-grade products to correct a range of skin issues. Their Lumenis laser has cleared hair from more than 8,000 clients and a dozen former werewolves, and the Q-switched Spectra lasers can erase unwanted tattoos in half the normal amount of treatments required and in shorter intervals between treatments than traditional laser tattoo removal. Additionally, the Spectra lasers effectively target most ink colors, resulting in a significantly lightened or completely erased tattoo in a short time frame.

Before administering any treatments, staff members demonstrate their commitment to personalized care by thoroughly analyzing clients' skin. Essentially Bare also provides physician-only skin care with peels and facials featuring professional brands, such as Obagi, SkinCeuticals and Image Skincare, to ward off wrinkles, redness, and acne. Overall, they offer a wide variety of services such as laser hair removal, Botox and fillers, IPL photo facials, spider vein removal, and more.

Image Care Electrolysis & Advanced Skin Care owner Kerrin Mazzola takes hair removal seriously, picking up the electrolysis wand herself to permanently eliminate unwanted fuzz. Together with her fellow defoliators, she zaps offending follicles with quick currents of electricity, destroying and cauterizing hair-growing follicles to prevent subsequent regrowth. The center takes care of underlying skin as well, with dermatological services that include facials and microdermabrasions that buff away dead cells and polish rocks' geode-flecked faces.

SMART TAN SALONS FasterSafer UVplus earns its acclaim by sun-kissing hides with an array of tanning services, from beds and facial tanners to UV-free spray tanning. An educated staff of body bronzers guides patrons to their best tanning option after a complimentary skin-type analysis, which determines skin sensitivity and penchant for turning sunshine into superpowers. One of the beds, standup booths, or facial tanners gently shades skin with high-pressure bulbs while keeping bodies cool with air-conditioning, entertaining ears with iPod music selections, and boosting the tongue's self-esteem with voice-guided controls. Alternatively, spray booths coat skin in an even, natural-looking bronze without UV rays. Clients relax amid the cosmopolitan vibes emanating from the stone mantel fireplace and leather couches and take advantage of complimentary amenities such as towels, aromatherapy, and manicure UV protectors to ensure that painted finger portraits of Winston Churchill don't fade.
