Get Your Summer Bod Ready in Boston

Filed in Featured, Lifestyle by on June 11, 2012 0 Comments

Can’t yet bear to bare it all? Well, now that our patch of less than stellar weather is hopefully behind us, now is the time to do some serious summer body maintenance as our glorious sun has started to show its face once again. To help you out – here are some hot spots to get your rear in gear for bikini worthy weather.

Wax On, Wax Off

Wherever you have hair, MiniLuxe can get you down to bare. Ladies and gents alike can get their body slick and shiny from legs, bikini and Brazilian wax for the ladies to sideburns, stomachs and toes for the guys. And while waxing may not be the most pleasant of life’s experiences not worrying about looking unsightly in the summer sun is completely worth it.  Check out MiniLuxe’s full list of services.

MiniLuxe is located at 296 Newbury St., Boston

Sandal Savvy

Nothing kills a beautiful pair of sassy sparkly sandals or a rugged pair of Mandals (for the guys) than unkempt feet. A good pedicure goes well beyond just a coat of polish. Smooth heels, well-nourished and exfoliated skin, as well as a bright red or coral toe color (generally just for the ladies, but not necessarily so) can make any summer sandal spectacular. And the folks over at Adara Spa know how to smooth out the edges of feet that have been pounding the pavements of Boston all winter long. For the true summer experience, we recommend the coconut pedicure which includes a coconut soak, a sugar cane exfoliant infused with exotic oils, and a body butter wrap. Your feet will not only look spectacular, they may also be tasty too…
Adara Spa is located at 115 Lewis Wharf, Boston

Sun Kissed (Sans the Sun)

Not much of a sun worshipper but love that sun-kissed look? Or perhaps you just seek that uniformed sheen of a well-tanned bod? No matter what your reason for seeking out a sunless tan, a spray tan will give you a healthy glow and save you the streaks of orange self applied tanning creams can often leave behind (particularly in those ornery spots like the back of your knees). At Natural Glow in Boston’s North End, their organic spray tan is all they do, and they do it well. An average application lasts anywhere from 5 to 10 days, so plenty of time to get you through a big event looking your best or perhaps even through a whole vacation looking like you have already been beachside for months.

Lush Lashes

Nothing can destroy a beautiful look than mascara melted into raccoon eyes on a hot summer day. And while water-proof mascara can be a nifty trick in a pinch, for a real summer solution head to Bella Sante for their lash dip. This semi-permanent treatment won’t harm your natural lashes and is waterproof, sweat proof and smudge proof. Add the thickness and lushness of truly incredible lashes without ever having to pick up a mascara wand. Want to go for the extra wow factor? Couple your lash dip with a lash extension treatment for bat worthy eyes every time.
Bella Sante is located at 38 Newbury St., Boston
