‘Tis the Season to Glow Up and Show Up at These Orange County Businesses

As we approach the holidays, we can all feel ourselves bracing for impact. Fast-paced shopping sprees, party planning, family feasts—while fun and worthwhile, the holidays can admittedly be tiring. Sure, ‘tis the season for giving, but who says you can’t show yourself a little love? Here’s your formal invitation to take some time and treat yourself to something that’ll help you feel and look your best! Here are five of our favorite self-care destinations in the city of Orange.

Tired of making time for traditional shaving or waxing? The cooler months are the perfect time to look into laser hair removal, so head to DermFX’s Orange location to zap those unwanted follicles. Starting laser hair removal treatments in the fall or winter allows you to prepare for next year’s swimsuit season, and with DermFX’s team of professionals, you can expect quick and relatively painless visits. New DermFX patients can book their next appointment online with code LOCALE20 for 20% off of their entire first treatment.

Curious about other DermFX treatments that are perfect for fall and winter? Look no further than CoolSculpting and QWO: two treatments that can help you target some of those stubborn areas and feel positively radiant. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment that uses extreme cold to freeze unwanted fat, and QWO is an FDA-approved injectable that smooths and reduces the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks. Trust us, this is an amazing gift-to-self; not only will you love the results, but you’ll also be supporting a woman-owned and -operated business!


Get a Superfood Snack at Blue Bowl Superfoods 

Even on your busiest and most hectic days, your body is deserving of a healthy, nourishing meal. For a snack that’s quick, easy and helps you feel your best, try out Blue Bowl Superfoods. Unlike other acai-bowl spots, Blue Bowl Superfoods lets you pay a flat fee for your bowl, then you can pile on whatever enticing ingredients you like. Each ingredient in the Blue Bowl lineup is as healthful as it is tasty, making it an amazing way to fuel up and recharge.

Is there anything that makes you feel more primped and pampered than a relaxing mani-pedi? Take time out from your busy holiday to-do list and get yourself party-ready at Old Towne Orange’s Lollipop Nail Studio. Priding itself on its handmade products and healthier nail polish, Lollipop Nail Studio is pioneering the non-toxic nail movement while still providing affordable services and beautiful, long-lasting nails. This salon has a service for everyone: we recommend the Hippie Hippie Shake for vegans, the Go-Go for busy bees and the Cali-Cure for those in need of some extra TLC.

Holiday stress can have a tendency to mess with our schedules, so we recommend carving out some me-time at Pilates Encore. Pilates does wonders for the mind and body, allowing you to focus on your movements while breathing and stretching purposefully. Pilates Encore is a fully equipped studio built for classes of up to three people, so you can expect attentive, masterful classes regardless of your Pilates expertise. You’ll leave your class feeling stronger, more relaxed and more confident to tackle the rest of the holiday season.
