You’ve never been 100 percent sold on the whole “it’s what’s on the inside that counts” nonsense. Split the difference and try something that serves both inner being and outer bod.
Some Whole Foods
Pick up grown-in-New-England organic goods at one of our favorite local spots: City Feed and Supply (672 Centre Street, Jamaica Plain; 617-524-1700). For a lunch that won’t bust your gut, try veggies from Enterprise Farm; goat cheese from Lazy Lady Farm in Westfield, Vermont; and a pint (or two) of Maple’s organic gelato. It’s only natural.
Since the sun has been slacking on giving you your vitamin D, get your dermis the goods with an advanced vitamin skin therapy facial at the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation (69 Newbury Street, fifth floor; 617-735-8735). During the two-hour treatment, your skin will be infused with antioxidants, vitamins A and C, and intense moisture using electric (and painless) currents and sound waves. The results are shocking. Mention DailyCandy when booking your appointment and get 25 percent off through August.
Little in the Middle
It’s not that you’ve got a spare tire or junk in the trunk (okay, enough with the car references), but you’re not opposed to a little extra body work (seriously, that was the last one). A 45-minute Power Butts and Guts class at Life in Synergy (867 Boylston Street, second floor; 617-867-6500) will get the maximus out of the gluteus and make that tummy taut.
Land Down Under
When pruning a big bush, terrain can get rough. Capiche? Soothe irritated skin with a Below the Belt bikini facial from GSpa (35 Newbury Street; 617-267-4772). An aesthetician will carefully zap ingrown hairs and apply a healing masque. Gentle exfoliation will ensure that off-the-grid growth won’t spoil the landscape.
