Lina Latief—owner of 818 Skincare—is a one-woman beautifying powerhouse. In 2007 she kicked open the doors to her own studio, after working a stint selling French beauty products. Her apprenticeship paid off. Armed with a fistful of certifications and the epidermal insights she gained during that time, she revamps exteriors with all kinds of treatments. In addition to customized Ultimate Facials with cocoa enzymes or organic peels she’s expanded into the realm of body wraps, spray tans, and microdermabrasion.

A tan can accomplish a lot for the skin: it can add a golden luster, highlight muscle tone, and even hide imperfections. The one thing it shouldn?t do, however, is damage skin. Experts such as Kim at Spray Tan California assist clients in protecting their skin and making it look the way they want it to look. Kim is an expert in sunless sprays, so she can custom apply two layers of safe, hypoallergenic, oil-free DHA sprays to skin to bring out a glowing color that stays for up to seven days. She can apply the color in just 15 minutes at her studio or remotely at a place of her client?s choosing?just not at the National Archives in front of the perfectly tan Declaration of Independence. With this process, she ensures that tan lines disappear in time for special occasions.
Totally Tanning knows that tanning services are not one size fits all. That's why its knowledgable staff offers a multitude of options. Four kinds of tanning beds bronze bodies at different intensity levels and include modern touches such as MP3 compatibility and aromatherapy. Those looking for a UV-free alternative can step into the Mystic Tan booth—where oscillating airbrushes coat bodies with aloe-vera-enriched tanning solution—or can enlist a spray technician for a custom airbrush-tanning session that uses solutions from Evolv and Infinity Sun.
Inside The Skin Spa & Wellness Center's cozy boutique atmosphere, massage therapists and aestheticians pluck products from around the world to soothe individual complaints. Aestheticians pamper fa?ades with mud imported from Italy or exfoliate dry skin with Hungarian salt. During massage services, aromatherapy hailing from France sends nose receptors on exotic vacations. To reap the full benefits of each facial, waxing, or body service, the staff recommends booking services in advance to block out a time slot and ensure unhurried, leisurely service.
