Named Best Tanning Salon by Good Times Santa Cruz, Tanners Cove bronzes bodies with an array of UV and sunless techniques. Gild your dermal surface to a treasury finish with a month of unlimited low-pressure brownings in one of Tanners Cove's advanced beds, which emit controlled mixtures of UVB and UVA light designed to minimize burning. Or, submit your body canvas to a level-two airbrushing in which a certified spray-tan technician will delicately apply sunshine paint to your exterior, leaving a glow, an even hue, or an abstract rendering of the Eiffel Tower upon request.
Tayo Day Spa’s mother-and-daughter duo pampers clients with treatments that help create radiant skin and are found on the menu of services. Helmed by the skin-soothing fingertips of the daughter-aesthetician, the 60-minute signature facial starts with a deep cleansing of the visage canvas before an exfoliating enzyme mask and steam treatment supervene to open up pores and slough off dead skin cells. A hand, arm, and shoulder massage works away tension hiding in the extremities of the musculature, and a nourishing application of face and eye cream, which leaves the skin with a glowing complexion, concludes the expression-maker-revamping session.
The staff at Dermaclinica believes that the secret to a successful skincare treatment is professional-grade products. That’s why they pull from top quality lines such as gloProfessional when clarifying complexions with signature facials and microdermabrasion treatments. They take particular care of sun-damaged skin, and complement all facials with oxygen steam mist, electric dermal brushing, and aromatherapy massage oils. When not enhancing features with tinting services or scale wax busts, the staff is melting away tension with heated stones during full-body massages.
Veronica Romero snips locks at Curl Up & Dye, a salon where the stylists are as skilled as the name is cheeky. There, she adds shine and subtracts frizz from hair using California Smooth's formaldehyde-free brand of keratin hair smoothing. She also fiddles with hair's tint knobs, shading manes to rich chestnuts and adding highlights to give hair more depth than a debate with Socrates at the bottom of the ocean.
