Don't be surprised if you suddenly feel more relaxed upon entering Ocean Day Spa. The full-service spa's interior was inspired by the Zen tenet of simplicity, and bamboo plants next to comfy chairs help set the tone. There's also something you won't see: gemstones were placed inside the spa's walls as it was being built to create balance, peace, and harmony within.
The serene setting is the perfect place to get a signature spa treatment such as a warm bamboo massage, which uses heated bamboo rods and lemongrass essential oil to relax muscles and eliminate aches. When it comes to skincare, a pumpkin facial peel polishes skin with fruit enzymes and ingredients that help reduce sun damage. These complex treatments are administered by the spa's talented staff.

In 2001, the first iTan Sun Spray Spa opened its doors. It had a simple goal—to make clients feel and look lovely with professional tanning services. Today, the spa has more than 20 branches around San Diego, each offering a slightly different assortment of tanning beds, spray-tanning booths, and mechanical spa services.
The Smart Tan–certified staff prioritizes keeping up with tanning technology by stocking state-of-the-art tanning beds such as the Sun Angel, which uses sensors to customize a blend of UVA and UVB rays, practically eliminating overexposure and the need to wear a beekeeper suit to detract from a burn. Many beds come equipped with stereo sound systems, misters, and fans. Just down the hall from these beauty gadgets, Mystic and airbrush machines bronze limbs without UV rays or tan crayons, and mechanical spa machines dispense relaxing red-light treatments, infrared-energy body wraps, and aqua massages.
Though Era Skin Lounge's aestheticians are obsessed with skincare, they realize that a facial is probably not the most important thing their client has to do that day. This is why they use high-performance products in timesaving treatments designed to strike a balance between effectiveness and relaxation. Era's staff hunts down pore-clogging culprits with facials, chemical peels, and leads from an anonymous tip line, and they battle signs of age with retinol and medical-grade organic enzymes.
