Give your body the attention it’s telling you it needs (and deserves) at these Philly spas and salons. We probed ‘round town and found the best treatments from natural-lift facials to wax-less Brazilians, to help you get back that radiance you've been missing all winter long.
For a day of decadence, visit Richel D’Ambra Spa & Salon housed in The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia. Try their 80-minute vitamin C time reversal facial to hydrate and revive your summer glow, though their extensive list of spa treatments are unparalleled. Start by arriving early, grabbing a fluffy robe, and unwinding in their sauna or steam room before moving on to the main event. 10 Ave. of the Arts, 215-523-8035
Join the movement and book an appointment for Rescue Spa's signature rescue facial, which is formulated to turn back any signs of aging just in time for the season's first soirée. Expect an in-depth skin analysis from experienced aestheticians, and let the natural lifting techniques begin. The spa also offers an array of purifying facials, botanically-based waxing, and massage options such as aromatherapy or deep tissue if those are better suited for your agenda. 1601 Walnut St., 215-772-2766
To feel reinvigorated in the most eco-chic way, stop by Juju Salon & Organics, which is keen on minimizing their carbon footprint by offering clients wholly organic and non-toxic products and services. And now that's bikini season, that means it's time to face that dreaded waxing service. But don't panic: their waxing services, which include the brow and upper lips, are done entirely with Nufree, a soy-based hair remover, which means no wax is involved. 713 S. Fourth St., 215-238-6080
Get a head start this season on your radiant summer look with 3000BC WellMed Spa's sunless tanning. It all starts with an exfoliating scrub followed by a full body massage, which incorporates SkinCeuticals Sans Soleil Self Tanner liberally applied for even coverage and a beautiful finish. 8439 Germantown Ave.,215-247-6020
Check out one of Philly's few spas that use blue wax: it's a hard wax known for its gentle hair removal, which is less painful for clients and reduces redness. We're sure no one has ever looked forward to a bikini wax, so this may be the answer that will get the deed done trouble-free this season. 1611 Walnut St.,215- 569-9599
MOKO Organic Beauty Studio's seasonal promotions such as the champagne elixir and rose facial will have your skin beaming after your session, thanks to the mineral enriched clay mask and the grapeseed oil used in the process. And because the spa is devoted to using all-natural ingredients, it's not only better for you, but it's also better for the environment, two things we love pairing together. 55 N. Third St.,215-922 6656
