A cast of aestheticians, massage therapists, and beauty professionals work under one roof at Nani Skin Care, where they keep skin glowing with help from products by Bioelements Professional Skin Care. Facials, customized to skin type and condition, incorporate deep cleansing with invigorating massage to restore a vibrant, youthful appearance to dull, aging complexions. Nani Skin care also offers an array of other treatments. For skin below the neck, the aestheticians administer a slew of spa treatments, including exfoliating salt glows and relaxing footbaths.
During 60- and 90-minute massages, aromatherapeutic scents guide muscles into relinquishing any stress or tension.

With yellow clapboard siding and a covered front porch, the cottage that houses Y'Sharis Spa puts visitors at ease with its homespun charm. This commitment to calm extends beyond the front door: the spa staff incorporates extra pampering touches into virtually every treatment. In addition to cleansing and moisturizing skin during facials, they soothe senses with aromatherapy oils or soothing paraffin dips; mani-pedis add on everything from warm herbal baths to enzyme scrubs. During reflexology treatments and massages, licensed therapists encourage relaxation more directly by correcting energetic imbalances or loosening tightly knotted muscles. For clients seeking a similar treatment experience at home, Y'Sharis Spa sells its own line of cosmetic products made entirely from natural ingredients and clients' relaxed "ahhs."

The team of stylists at BLU—which stands for "beauty living united"—have drawn on deep industry knowledge and skills to craft styles that suit each customer's personality. Alternatively, its team of aestheticians apply the same principles to their skin care practices.

Using organic marshmallow-root-infused conditioners and shampoos that emanate natural aromas, stylists render hair sleek in preparation for the everyday or special occasions, such as job interviews in wind tunnels.

Aestheticians soothe fitful skin with natural facial peels, smooth rough skin with botanical-based microdermabrasion treatments, and erase wrinkles by applying a layer of high-school yearbook photos.
