While the sun spends most of its day in the sky, it still finds time to hang out in The Riviera Tanning Spa, teaching five different levels of Ergoline tanning beds how to bronze bodies with color that looks like it came from the star itself. From the Ambition bed’s beginner-friendly 120-watt bulbs to the Excellence 800’s simmering 520-watt heaters, tanners of all levels can boost golden hues in as little as 10 minutes. Thanks to their large facility, Riveria can accommodate a high influx of individuals without requiring appointments. Their Autobronzer system also reduced peaked appearances without UV exposure, spraying skin with three levels of sunless solutions that add color that won’t run, streak, or turn blue when placed under a black light.
• For $10, you get one month of unlimited tanning (a $19.95 value). • For $25, you get one teeth-whitening session (a $50 value). • For $55, you get three months of red-light therapy (a $110 value). Acapulco Golden Tans & Salon cradles clients with luminous treatments designed to brighten both smiles and birthday suits. With one month of unlimited tanning, clients can enjoy 20-minute sessions in the SantaBarbara bed, which offers solar simulation with air conditioning and a Pioneer sound system. Acapulco Golden Tan & Salon's professional staff receives full training in UV-light administration, ensuring that clients do not tarnish while perfecting their penny impressions.
Tanning wears many glowing faces at Aloha Tan, where beds and sprays gild patrons' pelts with varying levels of toasty intensity. Bronze-seeking customers may turn up the sun dial, amping up traditional bed-tanning potency from level one (a $39.95 value per month) up to level four (a $59.95 value per month). Or opt for a technician-applied airbrush tan to gain a ray-free glow, donning a rich caramel exterior without the beach's UV rays or demoralizing sandcastle-construction competitions.
The aestheticians at BodyTrends specialize in nonsurgical Electrospa treatments that have toned and beautified the bodies of beauty-pageant contestants. By stimulating muscles with gentle electrical currents, technicians can mimic the effects of a face-lift or breast lift without ever breaking the scalpel out of its emergency glass. Lasers erase unwanted hair, veins, cellulite, and tattoos, and facial services banish blemishes while adorning features with MNA and mineral cosmetics. For feelings of inner peace, BodyTrends' massage therapists capture tension from bodies and release it deep in the woods to plague overly frivolous nymphs.
At Luv 2 Rub, a skilled massage therapist fights unwieldy stress and pesky muscle pains using deep-penetrating Swedish massages augmented by hot-stone therapy. The muscle mender, fully stocked with an assortment of oils that can target specific ailments, tailors each massage to work around patrons' individual needs, preferences, and vestigial dorsal fins. Tensed torsos settle in for their 60- or 90-minute sessions as caring hands employ the Swedish technique's long, flowing strokes to help induce relaxation and ply muscle tissue. By tracing taut tendons with heated basalt stones, the anxiety-fighting guru can help increase blood circulation, reduce back pain, and promote a deeper understanding between man and rock.
A.J. at Hair Emporium pampers clients from head to toe with an arsenal of beautifying and relaxing services. The Garden State–inspired Jerseylicious mani-pedi applies a glamorous foil finish to trimmed fingernails as well as scrubbed and groomed toenails, and lasts about one week, dazzling passersby and temporarily stunning podiatrists. Durable gel polish adorns digits after a Shellac manicure, and cleansed and toned faces luxuriate under a seaweed mask during the 30-minute express facial. The one-hour body wrap commences with a bow-to-stern body scrub, followed by an ambrosial mud mask and moisturizer. While relaxers unwind in their earthen cocoons, skilled fingers massage the scalp and third eye for 15 minutes.
