Infinite Beauty and Nicole Burke Skincare
By Nirmala Nataraj (Sep 25, 2009)
Shorter days and darker nights -- despite our sometimes sporadic Indian summers, the onset of autumn can sometimes augur some not-so-hot changes in our epidermal upkeep. But not to fear, here are two skincare spas that’ll help you get past seasonal grievances. Your pores will thank you. More
Nanskin & Urban Allure
By Nirmala Nataraj (Aug 14, 2009)
Getting the perfect pores during summer is one of those enterprises that can make you go “hmmm". Given the unpredictable weather fluctuations all San Franciscans have accustomed themselves to, it’s kind of hard to plan in advance, especially in the hot-and-cold (often in the same day) season. But here are two skincare spas that pride themselves on offering stellar services that are always in season. More
Meeting All Your Clinical and Facial-Sculpting Needs
By Nirmala Nataraj (Jun 19, 2009)
The medical spa seems to be the new preferred method of beautification and pampering among some circles. A hybrid between a clinic and a day spa, at its very best it’s the kind of place that takes its relaxation seriously, but never at the expense of its service. All the same, spa establishments that often dress themselves up as serious clinics seldom sport both medical know-how and aesthetic panache in equal measure. That’s where Medical Skin Aesthetics, the brainchild of San Francisco clinical aesthetician Alisha Valverde, comes in. More
A Slice of the Good Life for the Next Generation
By Nirmala Nataraj (May 29, 2009)
The days of weekend getaways to staid, matronly bed n’ breakfasts sporting out-of-date Victoriana and soignée, hoity-toity guests is officially over. Exorbitant trips to chichi hillside hamlets have been replaced by excursions to eco-chic, casual-meets-upscale places like Solage Calistoga, where you’re more likely to sip a martini in your bikini than sup with the Joneses in a cavernous dining room. More
Whisk Mom Away to This Affordable Haven
By Nirmala Nataraj (May 8, 2009)
If you’re fortunate enough to have your mom in close proximity, pass on the banal Mother’s Day options and head over to a special spot nestled deep within the rolling vineyards of Napa Valley -- complete with tranquil, lushly manicured landscapes and a clean sophistication that doesn’t play itself up with unnecessary extravagance. More
Four Top Pampering Picks
By Nirmala Nataraj (Apr 10, 2009)
You’ve been good this year -- paid your dues to Uncle Sam before the ides of April, took your Sigg to the gym instead of springing for environmentally unfriendly plastic water bottles, tightened the belt enough so you felt it but didn’t get too uncomfortable. That’s why it’s time to treat yourself. And I’m not talking about a Louis Vuitton bag or a new iPhone. After all, any excessive non-essential purchases made in the heat of a stressful moment might just yield diminishing returns, if not for your wallet, then certainly for your health. Let’s try an alternative, shall we? More
Illuminata Skin Care & Mirsada Skin Care
By Nirmala Nataraj (Apr 3, 2009)
Maybe you’re the kind of person who puts off going to the dentist every six months or getting your physical, despite those persistent little postcard reminders they send you in the mail. But taking care of your skin shouldn’t feel quite so daunting. Spring is in the air, and given our heat-driven susceptibility to clogged pores, as well as the propensity for those of us who don skin-baring clothes to dispense with the sunscreen, a little seasonal cleaning is just what the doctor ordered. Check out these two skincare studios, which specialize in getting your pores squeaky clean and all geared up to face the light of day. More
Pampering Without Excess
By Nirmala Nataraj (Feb 27, 2009)
Simplicity is the order of the day, economic stimulus plan or no. Cutting down extraneous costs and adopting a more introspective approach to your spending is the imminent result of the current financial debacle and the so-yesterday American raison d’être of mindless luxury. But getting mindful doesn’t mean giving up pampering. It just means trading in your regular ol’ day spa -- debutantes, amenity-packed locker rooms, pretentious ‘tudes and all -- for a place like Avra Organic Spa. More
Romantic and Family-Friendly
By Nirmala Nataraj (Feb 6, 2009)
Solvang isn’t your typical road-trip stopover. Founded in 1911 by a group of Danish educators, it’s filled with architecture reminiscent of Copenhagen’s cobbled streets and quaint European charm. Solvang is also where you’ll find Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort, a getaway that has become a rustic home away from home for harried city dwellers, especially of the LA variety. More
The Best Facials
By Nirmala Nataraj (Jan 23, 2009)
New Year’s resolutions are no longer a novelty, but for lots of indulgence-deprived folks, facials are. Certainly, juggling your beauty needs against a mile-long list of other priorities (beating the recession, for one) is going to take some practice, but as seasonal wear and tear takes its toll, you might find yourself using those Starbucks dollars for a loftier cause. Here are three aestheticians whose innovative approaches to skincare have many a guy and gal thanking the gods of glowing complexions. More
