Ravinder's Day Spa's owner, Ravinder K. Valia, is a graduate of the prestigious Swiss CIDESCO beauty association and has more than 30 years of experience freshening faces. Let her or one of her staff of skin specialists create a smooth, younger-looking finish on your frontispiece by polishing it with a microdermabrasion device, which sloughs off layers of dead skin like peeling open a banana to reveal the creamy mashed potatoes inside. Once the weathered layer of skin is stripped away, a new layer—one with a more even tone, fewer acne scars, and no temporary tattoo remnants—is revealed.
Round up your closest friends or take your sweetie out for a romantic ride aboard Fast1Charter's high-speed racing boat for an exhilarating and breathtaking outdoor experience. Captain Greg will ably pilot a 35-foot cigarette powerboat over Lake Erie's tranquil waters and lake dragons. During your cruise west from Edgewater to Rocky River, you'll enjoy the rush of 70-mile-per-hour speeds while the sun bobs atop the water like a perfectly safe yet radioactive buoy. On the way back, you'll get dramatic views of Cleveland's lit-up skyline pitched against the water. As you watch the sun melt into the ripply waters, pair your eye feast with an occasional cooling freshwater spritz.
Solares offers a bevy of tanning, waxing, and threading services to under-toned and over-follicled clients. Earlier technologically inferior societies valued powdery paleness and wish-granting leeches. However, it is no secret that a smooth tan waiting to show itself off beneath an autumn coat is the modern mark of refinement. Radiate such refinement when you slip into a Sundash 252 or an Advantage 350 tanning bed for one ($10.50), five ($45.50), or 10 tanning sessions ($77), or opt for an upgraded freckle-farming tansperience in an Avantgarde 600 or The Lounge ($18.90 for one session, $80.50 for five, $126 for 10). Clients can achieve UV-free photoskinthesis in under a minute with a Mystic Tan ($17.50 for one session). If tanning needs have been met thanks to high-fives from the sun, opt instead for your choice of only waxing services—Solares offers full Brazilians ($48.50), partial bikini waxes ($27), and other defurring treatments necessary for achieving optimal ocean-side aerodynamics.
Face-planting only organic and natural products, the aestheticians at Beauty Mark deftly drape the dermis in moisture-rich solutions. Your stride into the epidermal Hall of Fame begins with the Moisture Surge facial ($80), a 60-minute hydrating facial inspired by Marilyn Monroe. Camera-ready skin beams with softness, recharged to a glow that may spark punch-outs with similarly camera-ready paparazzi. Pick a facial add-on ($20–$40, excluding the minimicrodermabrasion) to indulge in yummy smears of enzymes and antioxidants, such as a collagen eye treatment, which minimizes puffiness caused by lack of sleep or leaving eyes in the microwave for too long. Or, nab a spicy, aromatic pumpkin peel, which holds enough active veggie enzymes to leave your face silky, smooth, and delicious smelling. Whichever aspect-enhancing extra guests choose, the entire tranquil experience is further accented by the spa's calm, quiet environs and noticeable lack of circus clowns.
Though the word “potion” may evoke images of bubbling cauldrons, the staff at Holistic Bodycare Hoboken New York City cast no spells with their potion massages. Instead, they mix together fresh ingredients, such as coconut butter, apricot kernels, vanilla oil, sandalwood, and nutmeg, to soothe aching muscles. These custom massages, as well as the spa’s spread of holistic facials, serve Holistic Bodycare’s mission of bettering clients through natural healing and anti-aging treatments. Guests sip on complimentary glasses of wine or cups of tea as they await their services inside of one of Holistic Bodycare’s private treatment rooms. The owner named the spa after a small village in Trinidad and Tobago, where residents live amongst the elements of nature. The team hopes that clients leave the spa “Sans Souci,” which means “carefree” in French and “without soup” on fake French menus.
The stylists at Xquisite Color & Cuts infuse clients’ lock with vibrant new hues and face-flattering highlights. They also cut hair into new styles on the heads of men, women, and children, and transform manes with flowing extensions long enough to use as a scarf when the temperature drops.
