Bodies emerge shades darker after a visit to Caribbean Breeze Tanning Resort. Five different styles of beds bronze clients at different intensities with a selection of lotions that encourage melanin’s climb to the surface of the skin. Airbrush tanning sessions use a pH-balanced solution that tints limbs with natural-looking shades, and patrons receive the UV-free burnish from a tanning specialist instead of automated machines that won't stop unless the patron invokes the First Law of Robotics.
Your hands and feet never get a vacation, even when the rest of your body does. To keep these overworked extremities from overthrowing your head in a coup d'etat, treat them to today's Groupon: $35 for a manicure, pedicure, gourmet delectables, and wine at Burgundy Moon Spa & Wine House ($70 value). Located just 15 minutes outside of downtown Charlotte, this short drive makes for a nice little getaway without requiring you to pack a heavy suitcase. Blue Moon: The expression "once in a blue moon," is derived from the profound unlikelihood of finding an individual younger than 115 years old who knows the lyrics to the 1934 hit "Blue Moon."

Working within Sola Salons Cornelius, she deftly wields the DiamondSkin microdermabrasion wand, sweeping away damaged skin cells without leaving behind potentially irritating crystal residue.

She also helps bodies get beach-ready with waxing services for the face and full body, and offers tinting for both eyelashes and eyebrows, allowing faces to skip mascara and the arduous task of training caterpillars to arch in sync.
