Luxury Spa & Resorts: As you sit on your couch in your matching Juicy Couture hoodie and yoga pants with a thick layer of goop on your face (supposedly to leave your skin feeling soft and supple), you watch Hollywood's Hottest Hookups on E!, speculating that if your skin was that dewy and glowing you'd snag a Hollywood hunk of your own. While you diligently follow the latest beauty regimen you still can't seem to get sparkling skin that movie stars seem to come by naturally. Fortunately there's no need for drastic measures to achieve the same results. Ole Henriksen, 'Facialist to the stars', has developed a line of pure, natural, high-performance skin care products that will renew, stimulate and pamper your skin, returning it to a healthy youthful glow. You can get everything you need to rejuvenate your skin (and the rest of your body) at Shutters on the Beach Hotel in Santa Monica. Home to a world-class spa, restaurant and spectacular oceanfront views of Los Angeles and Catalina Island.
Wrapped in windows, the hotel's restaurant, One Pico, offers diners a wide range of modern American cuisine on a menu that's updated seasonally by Chef Fermin Arias. Not only will the treatment you receive be fit for a star, the guestrooms and hotel's interior feature only the best. Their newly reinvented interior was appointed by designer Michael Smith to honor the understated elegance of the beachfront property while enhancing the deliberately residential charm. You'll find all the comforts of home-and then some-at this classic boutique hotel.
