Hollywood Tans, one of the nation’s largest chains of tanning salons, turns dermises gold with a special alchemic process known as Tanetics. Skin specialists consider each customer’s tanning goal, skin tone, and skin sensitivity before helping them choose the perfect skin-shading procedure. Four clean and comfortable types of stand-up UV tanning-booth options filter out most pestiferous UVB rays while speedily darkening pigment. Pricing varies, but five 11-minute bouts inside Hollywood Tans’ HT42 booth ($30) are enough to leave any pelt polished with a glossy base tan. For Daphnes fleeing Apollo, a Mystic spray-tan booth (starting at $19) depales pasty parchment with a misty coat of bronze that can last 5–7 days. The Mystic’s cartridges can be changed to allow users great flexibility in choosing their preferred skin patinas, or they can be purchased in bottle form for do-it-yourself home applications (starting at $19). A plethora of lotion is available to give your skin a longer lasting hue and moisturize your dermis until it's a glowing beacon of hydrated human hide.
5th Avenue Salon’s multitude of beautifiers spiff up weary physiques from top to toe. Hands fatigued from guerilla-thumb warfare unwind as one of the seasoned staffers buffs and files during a manicure, whereas battered soles take a 10-toed load off during a soothing pedicure. Once clients' extremities are sufficiently cleansed and burnished, technicians artfully daub nails with a traditional polish or, for an additional fee, Gelish polish to facilitate stylish, runway-grade direction pointing. Alternatively, adroit skin gurus kick off the one-hour classic European facial with a cleansing-and-toning treatment designed to whisk away epidermal impurities from all skin types before a thorough exfoliation and steam. Then, a therapeutic massage melts away tension icicles from faces, shoulders, and necks with calming kneads and strokes, paving the way for a custom facemask that swaddles cheeks in a skin-transforming veil. The application of a healing eye-care treatment and moisturizing SPF lotion conclude treatments, leaving faces feeling as good as a million-dollar bill lounging in a beachside hammock.

It's the advice you get before every first date and job interview: "Put your best face forward." This is easier said than done if your pores are clogged, your cheeks are flushed, or your skin is covered in candy buttons. Enter Face Forward, a beauty spa that specializes in rejuvenating treatments for the face and body. There are few aesthetic imperfections that the spa's staff can't handle. Exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments target dull skin, warm wax swipes hair away from the chin and lips, semi-permanent makeup enlivens eyelashes, and so on. There's even a noninvasive microcurrent facelift that contours skin and eliminates those wrinkles that make it harder to get speedy service at the face-painting tent.
