The eponymous owner of Clarisa’s Golden Touch specializes in gilding body builders. She wields a professional spray-tanning wand during each treatment, carefully misting the skin to accentuate each patron’s body and skin tone. Whether patrons want full or partial color, Clarisa creates a comfortable environment with in-studio and on-the-go services. She provides thorough instructions for achieving competition color, suggesting that patrons depilate and exfoliate their entire body in advance of the application. By following these steps and also declining double-dog dares to streak through the car wash, patrons achieve tans that last up to ten days.
The aestheticians at Madison Mohrr Skin Care specialize in spa treatments for women's faces and bodies. Though male patrons are welcome to attend in the company of a spouse or significant other, beauty specialists direct their skills toward administering facials, waxes, and homeopathic treatments to patrons with two X chromosomes or Scrabble pieces. The beauty specialists prove their dedication to creating a stress-free oasis by setting up each service with an appointment, which guarantees that each client receives the unhurried, personalized attention typically reserved for slow-motion tickle fights. Outside of her skincare business, Madison Mohrr - who recently celebrated 25 years of being cancer free - works with breast cancer awareness groups in Fresno.
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.
The staff at Waxing by Taline understands that not everyone has a lot of extra time for pampering themselves, which is why the salon's Brazilian waxes only take 15 minutes. A CIDESCO-trained aesthetician with more than 10 years of experience conducts the speedy session using Resin? by Hairaway, a special wax that decreases inflammation. As for visages, custom facials aim to treat excess oil and acne.
Krystal Clear Skin's specialities, body waxing and spray tanning, are a natural fit. Warm wax strips away hair from faces, legs, and nether regions, leaving silky smooth skin behind. Tanning solutions then coat limbs in uniform color to create a beach-ready complexion.
