Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. Wielding infrared heat and nutrient-shrouding steam, the moisturizing Hydro-Derma Fusion machine can help slake parched pores, increase collagen production, and replenish water reserves stored in vestigial dromedary humps. Erase evidence of eye-roosting crows and firm facial terrain with a luminous facial, which joins forces with topical skincare salves and dietary supplements to help stimulate cellular renewal and remove the velvet rope separating inner and outer beauty. The aqua-massage bed relieves muscle tension with a combination of warmth and water pressure. Like gullible brain surgeons, the skin’s natural defense systems are tricked into healing themselves with red-light-therapy treatments, which can help generate new collagen, reduce fine lines, and clear blocked pores.
Sunlight streams through the floor-to-ceiling windows at The Zone Health and Fitness, illuminating rows of free weights, whirring cardio machines, and enthusiastic certified personal trainers and nutritional consultants. Owner Greg Bobby helms the crack staff and uses his degrees in sports medicine and exercise physiology to carefully craft fitness routines aimed at stepping up metabolism through resistance training, cardio workouts, nutritional guidance, and vitamin supplements. Guests and members can partake of myriad group fitness classes such as yoga, spinning, and kickboxing, or devise their own workout regimes with the bountiful free weights and machines at their disposal.
• For $29, you get one month of unlimited UV tanning (up to a $70 value). • For $29, you get three airbrush spray-tan sessions (a $105 value). Colour U Tan's beautifiers brown sun-starved bodies with professionally applied spray tan and boost vitamin D levels with four varieties of UV beds. Elevate epidermises to an all-natural golden buff with three airbrush tanning sessions, which employ expertly and evenly applied South Seas spray tan that can last up to 10 days, before fading naturally. The sugar-cane-based tanner mingles with the skin's amino acids to create natural-looking color and a glow as brilliant as Aristotle in a neon suit. UV devotees can cultivate bronzed frames in three different beds and one stand-up booth, varying in exposure time from 12 to 20 minutes. Both packages include a $5 credit toward airbrush products or tanning lotion to correspond with UV-free, UV-full, or desert-wandering UV-overfull options.
Inside a small brick building adorned with a chimney and green trim, Dave and Carol McEndaffer work amid lilac walls and potted plants. It’s a lovely setting for a couple in the business of beautifying people, which they have extensive experience in. The duo has owned salons throughout the past 37 years and added Laurels Salon of Distinction to their stable more than a decade ago. They've studied with seasoned stylists; while Dave focuses on hair, Carol pours her efforts into skin care, wellness, and restoration treatments for baldness and thinning hair.
In addition to cuts and ammonia-free color, they cosset their clientele with massages, spray tanning, and waxing. The salon is stationed across the street from Colorado State University, so it’s a convenient spot to de-stress after an exam or to cover your eyes with cucumbers before a scary PowerPoint presentation.
Since opening in 1998, Tans To Go continues to bronze its guests with a selection of equipment that includes six tanning beds and custom airbrush tanning. UV-based tanning comes in both bed and booth form, embedded with radiant bulbs of up to 400 watts that target the body and face. Resident airbrush artists imbue hides with a tanning mist that moisturizes the skin as it does its best impersonation of the sun. Before customers choose a bronzing method, Tans To Go's friendly, helpful staff can help make the decision easier with advice and answers to tanning questions.
