DETOX: THE TOX OC

The brand-new Tox OC is the hottest spot in town to detox. The specialty lymphatic draining massage is aimed to heal your body from the inside out. The treatment focuses on the circulatory, digestive, and respiratory areas, as well as moving fluid out, improving full body function. The Master Tox is offered in 60- or 90-minute appointments depending on how much sculpting you’re looking for in certain areas. The face sculpt is a popular request, toning the muscles of the face for a flushed, fresh-face glow.  The Tox OC, 188 Broadway, Costa Mesa

CLEANSE: SEISO

Desire dewy skin? Costa Mesa native and beauty industry leader Tracy O’Connor Meyer dreamt of a skincare line with a less-is-more approach, and her Seiso line is just that. Based on Japan’s 5s Philosophy, her “clean, tidy, and elegant” line offers the four products she desired as a busy mom. Perfect for sensitive skin, the foaming cleanser leaves your face feeling squeaky clean and smooth as silk, and the revolutionary ceramide is the key to healthy skin.
