Nestled in historic Dublin, bare s.k.i.n. day spa is manned by an experienced staff that performs a range of skincare and muscle-relaxing treatments. Inside, guests receive custom skin recommendations based on their circumstances. Aestheticians rely on Éminence Organic Skin Care products and dōTerra essential oils as they soften and tone skin with organic fruit- and vegetable-extract facials, and fruit pulp or blueberry peels that detoxify and slough off dead skin.
Licensed massage therapist Cathy Kline performs relaxation and deep-tissue massages, and certified reflexologist Karen Brown kneads hands and feet during reflexology sessions. Staff members can also organize spa parties, during which groups of visitors let their hair down while therapists perform spa services from an a la carte menu.
Each of Hollywood Tans' 140-plus locations, scattered from coast to coast, houses UV tanning booths that allow patrons to tan while standing for 8–11 minutes. With an average of 15 hygienic booths per salon, patrons rarely encounter waiting times and can stop in without an appointment. Hollywood Tans also offers UV-free methods of adding color to one's skin, including Mystic Tan's DHA-infused spray tans, tanning lotions, and public readings of guests' teenage diary entries.
The sun can be fickle. Cloudy days or chilly temperatures can all interfere with a day of sunbathing. At Bayside Tanning, none of these factors ever become problems for clients seeking the look of evenly sun-kissed skin. Before every appointment, staff members will work with patrons and recommend a customized regimen tailored to their skin type as well as their goals. The studio features four different levels of cutting-edge Ergoline beds, which can simply develop a base or provide a thorough, all-over tan without unsightly pressure points. Additionally, Bayside Tanning also offers UV-free alternatives for visitors seeking a naturally bronzed look in preparation for a special occasion.
California Dream Body's staff helps you get a suntan without spending hours in the sun. Their organic DHA airbrush system bathes skin with a healthy, UV-free glow that looks natural. With the It Works! weight-loss program, they help clients work off unwanted pounds through a mix of supplements and botanical-infused body wraps. The studio also carries a selection of Million Dollar tanning products that bronze skin at home, giving astronauts the ability to stay beach ready without taking skinny-dips in space.

As one of the longest running gyms in Rancho Cucamonga, California Athletic Club has seen some of the tots who were placed in childcare as their parents worked out become full-fledged adult members themselves. But just because it's been around for decades doesn't mean the 24-hour gym is stuck in Jazzercise mode. Under new ownership since early 2014, the expansive space features treadmills, stationary bikes, and weight-lifting equipment, as well as whirlpools and steam rooms. A packed schedule of fitness classes, meanwhile, ranges from fast-paced cycling and cardio kickboxing to boot camp and Zumba.
