If makeup artist Mel J. had a signature look, it would be flawless skin. All her clients look airbrushed after a session in her chair. It helps that before applying any makeup to the face, she cleanses, tones skin, and hydrates skin, ensuring that she has a clean, smooth canvas to work with. Once skin is luminous, Mel smokes out eyes and paints lips with bright lipsticks or creates a more natural look.
The accommodating staff at Rio Tan preserves their visitors' bronze-ability and comfort with standup tanning booths that shine 360 degrees of UV-light, sunless spray-tanning options, private rooms, and complimentary refreshments. During a custom airbrush-tanning session, a skilled technician evenly applies a mist of tanning solution by hand so skin doesn't appear orange and streaky, like carrots shot out of a T-shirt cannon. Alternatively, the All-Inclusive package resurrects waning complexions with standup UV booths, up to eight Mystic spray or airbrush tans, and unlimited use of the Rio 42, 54, 60 and high-pressure booths. The booths come in variety of strengths, including high-pressure bronzing that tans skin without forcing visitors to impersonate mummies' pets. The package also includes red-light therapy (with a requirement of 24 hours between sessions), which can even out skin tone, reduce wrinkles, and shrink pores.
For the electrologists and aestheticians at Elite Electrolysis, beauty starts with smooth, radiant skin. To achieve both, the team combines electrolysis and microdermabrasion treatments to alternately banish unwanted hair and render skin with the youthful radiance it hasn't seen since the day it left the cabbage patch. Rather than short-term solutions such as threading and waxing, electrolysis treatments vanquish all types of hair from all types of skin, virtually guaranteeing permanent removal with multiple visits. Microdermabrasion takes care of brown spots, wrinkles, and acne by sloughing off dead skin cells with ultra-fine crystals.
