Where Luxury & Indulgence Live

Situated in the heart of Napa, Silverado Resort and Spa is a sprawling, iconic getaway beloved by many. And while booking a day spa is de rigueur for resort guests, it’s also a coveted treat for locals looking to escape for a day of pampering in Wine Country. And you might as well go luxe, right? Try the 24 Karat Body Wrap with Golden Veil Smoothing Facial for head-to-toe beautification. The body wrap leaves skin exfoliated and hydrated while a thoughtfully customized facial is the pre-party, pre-vacation or midweek pick-me-up you absolutely deserve. Be sure and book a table on the terrace at The Grill (the resort’s on-site restaurant — there is also a Market & Bakery for quick bites and coffee) for lunch pre- or post-treatment. The sweeping views of the manicured grounds are a little slice of heaven — and pair perfectly with a glass of sparkling rosé. Silverado Resort and Spa, 1600 Atlas Peak Road, Napa

Where Teen Skin Gets Pampered

Beauty Heroes is known for its dedication to uber-clean products and its coveted monthly subscription service (with tons of perks for local members, by the way), but did you know that it also has a chic treatment room? Lean in, I’ll tell you more. Tucked away in a cozy alcove on the second floor, there is an airy, bright nook with enough space to make you feel like you are in a much more expansive spa retreat. While all of the treatments incorporate hero products (standouts from brands that have a cult following), the Teen Spirit Facial is one to note. The 60-, 75- or 90-minute facial addresses the distinct concerns that teens have to deal with, while also imparting educational tidbits on how to keep up the healthy skin practices at home. There is even a cozy love seat for parents who want to be with their teen in the treatment room. Pretty terrific, right? Beauty Heroes, 817 Grant Avenue, Novato

Where Mind & Body Meet

Redmint, a wellness center known for its traditional Chinese Medicine take on natural skin care, has just opened a second dreamy location on Fillmore Street in San Francisco — and if there was any doubt, it is well worth the drive. If Botox and fillers aren’t your thing, but you still want younger-looking skin, then you must try the Glow Acupuncture treatment. Just like in traditional acupuncture, needles are used to stimulate and soothe, depending on what your body needs, and the effects of this treatment are immediate, lasting and cumulative. If you are looking for collagen stimulation, to erase wrinkles and fine lines, to even out skin tone or to increase the skin’s tightness, this customizable treatment can do all those things and then some. A series of treatments is recommended for the best results. The good news is that Redmint offers a monthly membership that reduces the cost of treatments and keeps you on track with your regular tune-ups. No kidding, this might be the best thing since the advent of retinol. Redmint, 2044 Fillmore Street, 2nd floor, San Francisco
