In their spacious, clean, and summer-themed salon, the staff of Caribbean Sun emphasizes the importance of an even, moisturized, and lasting summer glow. By pairing each spray or UV tan with a trip to their cell-soaking hydration station, customers see results that last longer and feel as smooth as a sweet-talking dolphin. For a faux glow that resembles a sunbathed bronze or the results of one thousand trips to the moon, hop in the Matrix V28, a high-pressure, 360-degree stand-up tanning booth. Sessions in this UV-spewing human capsule last 12 minutes and are thought to caramel-dip the epidermis six to eight times quicker than traditional tanning beds.
Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide. In these stores, optometrists assess the ocular health of patients before onsite opticians help them navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. If they're not in the store, clients can utilize the Try-On tool, uploading a photo to see what they or their dog looks like in different types of glasses. Pearle Vision also helps focus the world with contacts from Acuvue and Biofinity.
The doctors at Oral Surgery South have all the training to back up their straightforward business name—and it's a lot of training. To perform oral and maxillofacial surgery, these medical professionals took on up to six additional years of training as they mastered surgical techniques, anesthesia, and the hanging of many degrees on a single wall. In addition to helping patients with a variety of problems of the mouth, teeth, and face, they also perform aesthetic services, giving their patients youthful looks that complement their healthy smiles.
After experiencing a very difficult time in her life, mother and entrepreneur Lauri Meizler was in search of a healthy start. She went down many paths to recover, but the results were less than optimal: instead of feeling energized, she found herself lethargic and underweight. It wasn’t until discovering cleansing and Ayurveda, one of the world's oldest medical systems, that life began to change. Soon thereafter, she adapted the teachings of the combination, and has since felt energetic, balanced, and in control of her life once again.
Lauri received certifications as a health coach in raw foods and Ayurveda and pairs the ancient Indian tradition’s holistic-wellness practices with modern nutrition training to help others optimize their health and well-being through eating a predominantly plant-rich diet. Her company, Joos, funnels these nutritious ingredients into bottles to help on-the-go people to build healthy, sustainable eating habits.
In flavors such as green lemonade, citrus refresh, and antioxidant blast, these wholesome potables teem with ingredients such as fresh-pressed, unpasteurized apples, ginger, and bok choy. Each bottle contains 10–14 types of garden-grown goodness, which amount to two times the daily requirement of fruits, veggies, and scarecrow smiles. The juices can fortify meals with vitamins and minerals or serve as the meals themselves during cleanses, which last 5–21 days. Cleanse participants can also drink in the support of a certified health coach/cleanse expert.
