Using clean, modern equipment, Always August Tanning’s experienced staff turns pale Elizabethan kings and queens into bronzed beach royalty. Lamp worshippers ensconced in four types of UV baggage compartments can bake faces and shoulders to a toasty brown with targeted high-pressure tanners—users can buy a month of unlimited tans (starting at $49.99) or a finite package of tanning minutes (starting at $24.95) to be ticked off one by one. Or treat a UV-phobic hide to a five-minute airbrush tan ($39.99) with paraben-free South Seas Tahitian Tan solution and let skin soak in its brown colour base and cucumber-melon scent.

Libby Jackson has spent the last quarter century is the aesthetics industry. During these 25 years, she's developed a style that is both professional and pleasant. Her warm manner helps distract first-timers during waxing, makes nailcare treatments the pinnacle of conviviality they ought to be, and renders facials extremely indulgent. Rather than use bargain-bin cleansers or nail polish made of melted-down crayons that were made from melted-down nail polish, she backs her services with quality products from OPI, Footlogix, and Dr Renaud.

The anti-aging experts at Vine Vera believe they have found the secret to staying youthful: red wine. But unlike most stores devoted to wine, Vine Vera does not encourage customers to drink its wares. Instead, it repurposes wine grapes, packing them into beauty products in order to combat wrinkles and free radicals with an antioxidant called resveratrol.

Vine Vera encourages skin to soak up the antioxidant with the Chianti Collection, which brightens dull skin, the Zinfandel Collection, which works to protect skin from sun damage, and the Pinot Noir Collection, which aims to repair damaged skin. The Merlot Eye Collection finally gives users a way to reduce puffiness that doesn’t require placing frozen grapes over eyelids.

The aestheticians at Gorgeous Skin Spa let the healing molecules in the botanical-rich Prana SpaCeuticals product line do the grunt work while administering their specialty facials. Prana translates to “breath” in Sanskrit and reflects Prana SpaCeuticals’ philosophy that all-natural, living ingredients improve the appearance of skin far better than the harsh synthetics found in commercial products. Aestheticians complement their facial services with waxing treatments, which also draw on organic formulas, and semipermanent-makeup applications harness plant-based pigments to fill in brows, third eyes, and lips. The spa's menu also includes peels and eyelash extensions.

Needleless acupuncture sounds like a contradiction, but Shelly Wade does it everyday—with lasers. Of course, she's well versed in traditional acupuncture as well. Licensed through the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of British Columbia, Shelly found her way to acupuncture after a car accident interrupted her competitive dancing career. Impressed by its impact on her recovery, she began studying acupuncture along with other natural therapies, such as biofeedback and reflexology, to pay forward the benefits these therapies afforded her.

Today, as owner of Island Integrative Health Clinic, Shelly does just that by combining those multiple approaches to healing. She also specializes in anti-aging treatments such as facial-rejuvenation acupuncture, giving clients an alternative to Botox and never smiling again by applying a low-level current that combats wrinkles and other signs of aging. Further services her centre offers range from massage therapy to BloodScan, a live-blood analysis that aims to identify pre-symptomatic indicators of degenerative disease. No matter the treatment, she approaches each case with a gentle, welcoming approach, believing that acupuncturists must help their patients feel comfortable so that they remain open to the healing process.

At Newera Wellness Centers, co-owners Dewar and Jen McCarthy offer a variety of beautifying services. As an accountant, Dewar handles the business side of the center while Jen, a certified weight-loss coach and certified Finer Face therapist, handles the treatments. Jen helps stabilize insulin production by providing clients with adequate protein and low-sugar diet plans. She also performs nonsurgical Finer Face facial-rejuvenation treatments that use low-level microcurrents to even out complexions—a method that’s generally preferred over the use of Wite-Out, pencil erasers, or a firm commitment to walking backward forever.
