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.

Dr. Michael Perline and Linda Perline, PA-C, understand the importance of looking at a pretty face, and not just because the husband and wife work together. The duo helm Between the Lines Medispa, twice voted Best of Howard County by Howard Magazine. These medical specialists—Michael an M.D. and instructor at John Hopkins Hospital, and Linda a nationally certified physician assistant with 26 years of clinical experience—aim to give all their clients personalized care, which they do through services such as their “liquid facelift.” Using Botox and Dysport, dermal fillers, and prescriptive skin care products, this treatment can improve lines around the eyes and forehead, soften deep folds around the mouth, and reshape the chin and jaw. During this treatment, clients are given a mirror so that they can give feedback, such as asking the clinicians to focus more on frown lines. Afterward, clients are typically able to return to normal activities the same day. Between the Lines Medispa is located inside Mason & Friends Salon·Spa; together, their menu of services includes facials, massages, manicures, pedicures, haircare, Vi Peels, and ultrasound Clarisonic brushes.

Ever since she was a young girl, Sonia Singh knew she wanted to be an aesthetician. After years of study and training, Sonia teamed up with dermatologist Dr. Anita Henderson to open Luna's Day Spa in Columbia and Luna's Medi Spa in Ellicott City. Today, the aestheticians beautify and educate clients about how to keep complexions as radiant as a flashlight powered by hope. They apply Dead Sea mud and seaweed wraps to fortify skin with natural botanicals and nutrients, all of which are explained in detail during treatments. They dispense this knowledge with the backup beats of the spas' soft music, which often accompanies soothing aromatherapy treatments.
