[ 12 ] • # dayspamagazine • june 2018 T E A M T R A V E L S from the editor by Laura Waldon I can't believe that two years after joining DAYSPA, I'm taking the helm as executive editor. In that time I've worked on every aspect of the magazine, from compiling product sections to writing features, as well as covering industry trends and treatments by speaking with many of you. If I haven't yet had the chance to connect with you personally, I look forward to doing so! As I write this during an unseasonably chilly spring, I'm also looking forward to June's warmer weather—and with it, swimsuit season. Having grown up in the Los Angeles area where it's almost always sunny, I can't wait to plant myself poolside as often as possible. In my opinion, swimming is the best part of summer: respite from the heat, relaxation—and the perfect way to get fi t. Like me, spa-goers across the country will soon be shedding those extra layers of clothing and seeking out every possible opportunity to achieve their best bikini (or at least beach-worthy) bods. Although weight loss is typically their top priority, clients of all ages will also be looking for something else after being bundled up for so long: radiant, super soft skin. With that in mind, we present our annual Body Beautiful issue, a one-stop shop (un)covering everything from the neck down. From the best skin-smoothing services to the products that get guests glowing, we've left nothing out: Turn to page 14 for our Spotlight column on body wrap treatments; learn about spas' most popular full-body exfoliation off erings in "Head-to-Toe Glow" on page 24; then, check out page 30 for this month's Must Have—a stunning selection of scrubs. But Body Beautiful isn't just about outward appearances. As we all know, spas are focusing on total health and wellness—addressing both body and mind—more than ever before, and there's perhaps no better example of that overlap than massage. In addition to relieving a multitude of physical issues, aches and pains, these services are also proven to help ease anxiety, promote relaxation and so much more. Thanks to this wide range of benefi ts, massage therapists are developing new modalities for increasingly specifi c markets. For inspiration on accommodating clients in this regard, fl ip to "Diff erent Strokes" (page 42), our in-depth look at bodywork designed for the unique needs of particular populations, from expectant mothers to avid runners. As I take the reins here at DAYSPA, I can't help but get excited about the future of the spa industry, wellness and holistic treatments—and I'm equally eager to bring that knowledge to you. I experienced a Technoceuticals treatment at Murad's fl agship store in Los Angeles Alexa sampled express services at Burke Williams' Spring Skin Ca re Event in Woodland Hills, California Jasmine learned about Glen Ivy Hot Springs' new off erings in Corona, California Skin Deep This month, we welcome Alexa Joy Sherman as DAYSPA's new managing editor!
