Lorrain Lombardo-Shapiro is a medical clinical aesthetician and kundalini yoga teacher. The diversity in Lorrain's resume speaks to the way Bella Faccia Skin Care and Wellness Spa operates: a combination of clinical and holistic care used to achieve cosmetic beauty and self-confidence. The center's marquee services are its customized facials, which are designed to address each client's unique skin needs and are supplemented by 10-minute relaxation treatments. There's a whole slate of organic facials as well that incorporate a variety of nourishing ingredients in service of a radiant face: organic cherry, green tea, grape seed masks, and wild rose bub. Bella Faccia takes the same holistic approach to harmonizing mind and spirit with body treatments such as visual meditation and Reiki energy healing.

Allison, certified airbrush technician and owner of Glow on the Go, believes that getting a luxurious tan shouldn't comprise your health. Her mobile spray-tan setup eschews the potentially harmful UV rays of traditional sunbathing, and instead relies on the body-bronzing ability of Aviva Labs organic spray-tan solution. The odorless solution's 13 ingredients imbue complexions with a fresh-off-the-beach hue without turning skin orange. The solution dries instantly after application but the tan typically takes around six to eight hours to develop, making clients look as if they just came back from a vacation in the Caribbean. Customers may shower post-tan application.
