Aromatherapy can be used to soothe nerves and focus the mind, but for SkinBar's Lynda Dheming Moore, it sparked her entrepreneurial spirit. While working at an essential-oil company, Lynda discovered the benefits of plant extracts on the skin. This experience inspired her to enroll in aesthetics training and cosmetic chemistry classes at UCLA. This was in 1995, when Dr. Howard Murad was developing his holistic approach to skincare in nearby El Segundo, so she sought training from him after completing her coursework. She opened SkinBar nearly a decade later, after learning high-tech techniques at The International Dermal Institute and deepening her knowledge of skincare products at Dermalogica. SkinBar stays true to its name, focusing exclusively on ways to smooth and refresh the saran wrap covering our faces and bodies. Facials reflect Lynda's diverse training, with involved rejuvenation methods involving gentle electrical impulses, salves enriched with goji berries to heal dryness, or retinoids to even out blotchy pigmentation. She still relies on Murad and Dermalogica tonics during treatments, but her library of products now includes bottles from Jan Marini and Obagi as well as cosmetics from Jane Iredale. Bluewick candles infuse the studio with relaxing aromas, and their scents seep into private chambers where massages ease pregnancy or melt knots with warm basalt stones. Waxing reveals radiant skin from under a wilderness of hair, and makeovers can accent facial architecture with pigment and eyelash extensions.

A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 230 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach — A Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: The Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles. Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.

They can also revitalize entire physiques with body wraps. Regardless of the treatment at hand, the team strives to incorporate organic and natural products whenever possible, rather than those made with extracts from the Little Shop of Horrors plant.

The experienced aestheticians of Vanity Skin Studio beautify bodies with a variety of services in their elegant studio space. Patrons can bronze bodies with an Infinity Sun custom airbrush tan in light, medium, or dark tones, each ranging from mild shades to hues as intense as a postmodern-poetry major. The hydrating formula coats outer selves in a fine mist for even coverage that lasts for up to 10 days. Undergarments are optional during the spray-tan session, which takes approximately 10 minutes, with an additional five minutes of drying time. Alternatively, unburden unmentionable areas of follicular inhabitants with a Brazilian wax. Wax wizards can complete the hair removal in approximately 15 minutes, which is exactly how long it takes to find one’s reflection in an industrial vat of wax. For the procedure to be most effective, clients should have at least 1/4 inch of hair growth.
