Pure Escape Resort’s certified skincare professionals nurture faces and bodies with treatments that make use of gentle formulations and infusions of natural ingredients such as fruit and seaweed. Pores get their USDA-recommended four servings of fruit a day with a pumpkin, blueberry, or cranberry facial, and a microdermabrasion treatment momentarily blings out skin with tiny crystals that work to reduce the appearance of fine lines, sun damage, and acne scarring. Along with their many skincare services—all of which are noninvasive and thus require no post-treatment downtime—the staff relaxes and beautifies bodies with massages, waxing, and tinting for the lashes and brows.
The Beautique's Jessie Brewer, operating out of The Cutting Room, uses Rhonda Allison skincare products to keep her clients’ epidermises healthy and bright. Specifically, she renders more than a half dozen different types of facials and chemical peels. During the complete facial, Jessie uses enzymes or electrical techniques, while her microdermabrasion can be bundled with a facial or performed on its own. In addition to her core competency, Jessie can perform waxing for many areas, including eyebrows, bikini areas, and underarms.
The accommodating staff at Hollywood Tans opens the doors to their body-bronzing facility so guest may revel in the plentiful, sun-less tanning options afforded by tanning booths and UV-free apparatuses. Approximately four, eight-minute sessions in the HT60 tanning bed builds a solid base tan, and up to six months of unlimited HT60 tanning deepens golden hues so beneficiaries can blend in at King Midas family reunions. To eschew advances by ultraviolet rays, visitors step into the Mystic machine as a mist of tanning solution envelopes their bodies, evenly coating their skin with one of four shades of bronze color, from glow to dark, that lasts five to seven days. As the spray booth works its tanning magic with customizable color cartridges, moisturizers treat skin cells to a refreshing feast of hydration.
The chefs at Sweet Tea's Restaurant and Catering know that southern-style cuisine goes beyond collard greens and grits. Every day, they use high-quality ingredients to craft soups, salad dressings, and sauces from scratch, including the creamy white-pepper gravy that smothers mounds of housemade mashed potatoes and country-fried chicken or steak. Hand-battered shrimp are cradled inside po’ boys with made-from-scratch tartar sauce, while a homemade barbecue-ranch dressing tops offerings including the texas brisket and potato hush puppies.
The catering specialists, who catered for the contestants and crew of The Bachelorette when the show filmed in Charlotte, can arrange for many of the menu options to be created for parties, meetings, or jury-duty reunions. A complimentary jug of sweet or un-sweet tea accompanies all catering orders.
