Golden girl: Boost your beach game with the lat­est skin­care ser­vices and beauty treat­ments.

There’s a whole new set of beauty rules once the tem­per­a­ture warms up: high­lights with­out fry­ing your locks, bronz­ing sans sun dam­age, stay­ing sweat-proof after long days in the heat. Ac­com­plish­ing all of this, and more, is pos­si­ble, and Philly beauty ex­perts tell us how.

LASER FO­CUS

Shorts, biki­nis, sun­dresses: The sum­mer uni­form of­ten calls for lots of skin. That means shav­ing is back in your daily rou­tine. Tired of the process or the after-shave nicks? Opt for laser hair re­moval. “The av­er­age woman spends 72 days shav­ing her legs in her life­time,” says Jen­nifer Miller, di­rec­tor of mar­ket­ing at 3000BC Spa (8439 Ger­man­town Ave.; 3000bc­spa.com). “So it’s no won­der laser hair re­moval is so pop­u­lar.” And 3000BC takes it a step fur­ther, of­fer­ing SyneronCan­dela laser tech­nol­ogy, a to­tally pain-free process that works on all skin types in just six treat­ments.

ON-DE­MAND BEAUTY

As the sea­son changes, your skin­care rou­tine needs to change, too. But mak­ing the switch isn’t al­ways easy. That’s where Manestreem (manestreem.com) comes in. With the touch of an app, this on-de­mand ser­vice brings beauty ex­perts right

to you. “I’m all for or­ganic prod­ucts,” says Feli­cia Gar­cia, a Manestreem beauty provider. She rec­om­mends fol­low­ing a sim­ple rou­tine: “Cleanse im­pu­ri­ties morn­ing and night; ex­fo­li­ate and use a hy­drat­ing detox mask once or twice a week; and hy­drate with co­conut and pineap­ple wa­ter.”

LET’S FACE IT

Get­ting a healthy glow is a want for many, but stay­ing away from sun rays is a ne­ces­sity for all. For­ever Young Medspa (1420 Lo­cust St.; for­ever youngmedspas.com) of­fers a Sum­mer Skin Con­di­tion­ing Process— it starts with ex­fo­li­a­tion through derma­plan­ing and ends with a cus­tom­ized nan­otech­nol­ogy skin-con­di­tion­ing treat­ment—that lets you do both. But if you want to take your skin­care up a notch, opt for the Triple Play mi­croneedling treat­ments. “These cus­tom­ized ses­sions re­pair and re­ju­ve­nate skin,” says Linda Lee Taglia­monte, med­i­cal aes­theti­cian at For­ever Young.

DEEP FREEZE

New to town is Cry­omyst (mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions; cry­omyst.com), an off­shoot of the pop­u­lar tan­ning hot spot Sun­myst, giv­ing Philadel­phi­ans a taste of the sub-zero sauna craze known as cryother­apy with lo­ca­tions in Cen­ter City and Haver­ford. Ben­e­fits

of cryother­apy range from de­creased in­flam­ma­tion to im­proved re­lax­ation, wellness perks needed in the sum­mer. Plus, clients can hang out in the lounge after treat­ments to let the body’s tem­per­a­ture reg­u­late. “We wanted to bring some of these cut­ting-edge treat­ments to Rit­ten­house Square and the Main Line,” says Mar­i­lyn Kellmer, who owns Cry­omyst along with Jeff Kellmer. “[We] cre­ated a restora­tive en­vi­ron­ment where peo­ple can re­lax and re­ju­ve­nate with­out be­ing rushed out the door.”

KISSED BY THE SUN

Con­tour­ing just your face is so last sum­mer—this year, it’s all about con­tour­ing your whole body. “We’ve al­ways done light con­tour­ing with our tans, but after at­tend­ing a demo by Katie Quinn (who tanned the Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret run­way show), we’ve been fo­cus­ing on it more,” says Adri­enne Volpetti, owner of Baked (740 S. Fourth St.; baked­tan­ning.com). “We lightly shade the sides of the stom­ach, thighs, col­lar­bone, and shoul­ders; our goal is to ac­cen­tu­ate what our clients al­ready have.”

TAME TRESSES

We want smooth and sleek hair, but in warmer weather, we of­ten get frizz and dam­age. A Ker­atin treat­ment from Sa­lon Van­ity (1701 Wal­nut St.; sa­lon­va­n­ity.com) is the ul­ti­mate so­lu­tion. “The Ker­atin treat­ment of­fers many perks [like] re­duc­ing frizz, re­pelling hu­mid­ity, im­prov­ing the

in­tegrity of the hair, and re­duc­ing blow-dry time up to 50 per­cent,” says owner Ed­mondo Blondo. Bonus: Ker­atin usu­ally lasts up to four months, keep­ing your hair shiny and smooth right through La­bor Day.

ABOUT FACE

Your face is the fo­cus no mat­ter the sea­son, but sun dam­age, al­ler­gies, and sen­si­tiv­ity can take over come Fourth of July. At Le Reve Rit­ten­house Spa (255 S. 17th St.; lereve rit­ten­hous­espa.com), the spa’s BDR Mi­cropeel treats dark spots, wrin­kles, acne, and more. “In­no­va­tive emul­sion tech­nol­ogy com­bines the com­pany’s most valu­able nat­u­ral sub­stances with mi­cro-molec­u­lar op­ti­mized essences,” says owner Sophia Brod­sky. “Any skin con­di­tion can be treated, re­gard­less of age.”

SWEAT PROOF

Is the word “sum­mer” prac­ti­cally syn­ony­mous with sweat for you? If you’re wor­ried about per­spir­ing, Dr. Louis P. Bucky (mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions; dr­bucky.com) has the so­lu­tion. “Pa­tients are al­ways in search of treat­ments that will help them be con­fi­dent while on the beach,” he says. “Miradry is a new non­sur­gi­cal tech­nol­ogy that I’m very ex­cited about be­cause it elim­i­nates un­der­arm odor and sweat for good with just one treat­ment.”

“MIRADRY IS A NEW TECH­NOL­OGY THAT ELIM­I­NATES UN­DER­ARM ODOR AND SWEAT WITH ONE TREAT­MENT.” — dr. louis p. bucky

Chill out at the new Cry­omyst Rit­ten­house.

Laser hair re­moval, cryother­apy ses­sions, and anti- per­spi­ra­tion treat­ments are the new­est ways to stream­line sum­mer beauty rou­tines.
