421 N. Bedford Dr., Beverly Hills
Sugaring calls on an organic sugar, lemon, and water paste to pull hair out in the natural direction of its growth. The treatment can be safely applied to virtually any part of the body and somehow manages to thin out the hair over time.
goop Kitchen Beverly Hills
345 N. Maple Dr. Ste. 100, Beverly Hills
You asked for healthy takeout; we delivered. Our take on takeout is a menu of hearty bowls, vibrant salads, delicious handhelds, pizza, pasta, rotisserie, and more—all gluten-free and often finished with goop Certified Clean sauces, dressings, and marinades.
La Dolce Vita
9785 S. Santa Monica Blvd., Beverly Hills
At glam and dimly-lit La Dolce Vita, you’re looking at a menu of Italian-American classics: dry martinis, strip steaks, and spaghetti bathed in red sauce and parmesan-dusted meatballs. It’s all impressively good without reinventing the wheel, and the service is excellent.
9800 Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90212
You grew up enamored with Eloise’s life at the Plaza. Your dream interior design brief includes a washroom inspired by the Peninsula Hotel. Office lighting offends you. Sounds like you’re a candidate for Spring Place, a coworking space disguised as a 5-star hotel (including a concierge). Different working areas come with their own ambience: the executive boardrooms are all light wood and sepia-tinted glass, while the shared workspaces feature custom-designed communal desks. But the overall design shares a midcentury-meets-eclectic luxury energy that suits its upbeat, on-the-move clientele. Along with desks and meeting rooms, options for getting the job done at Spring Place include a conservatory, library, and outdoor terrace—a layout that sounds more like a mansion in Clue than a coworking space. Spring Place is members only—but if you’re looking for a nontraditional (and bicoastal!) office environment (all membership tiers include access to their NYC location) with five-star dining, like B12 shots, massages, and complimentary Pilates classes, then look no further.
9500 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills
The colonnaded entryway of the Beverly Wilshire sits at the bottom—or the top, depending how you look at it—of Los Angeles’s most storied street, Rodeo Drive. It’s fair to say that this imposing, old-Hollywood hotel is the grande dame of Beverly Hills, and deservedly so. Informality is not the vibe here. The glamorous BLVD Lounge with its impeccable service and martini-sipping crowd has a way of making you sit a little straighter. After a sound night’s sleep on the cloud-soft beds that we’ve come to expect at Four Seasons properties and maybe a few laps in the Tuscan-inspired pool, we head to the spa. The menu is the length of a book and, because this is LA, packed with esoteric treatments, like cryotherapy and targeted postsurgery massages. The room service is excellent, and again because we’re in LA, there are plenty of healthy options that cater to every diet (we’re partial to a celery juice and the savory tofu porridge). Downstairs, Wolfgang Puck’s CUT is the steakhouse to end all steakhouses. For those venturing to Los Angeles for the first time—especially with kids in tow—the concierge at the Wilshire…
Dr. Nigma Talib
Private clinic, email [email protected] for appointment
Legendary naturopathic doctor Nigma Talib approaches the skin through the gut, the mind, and some superstar clean skin essentials (we’re obsessed, more on those later). She’s starred on an episode of The goop Lab, and appeared in person at In goop Health. A session with her can start with face mapping, where she takes a long look at your skin to discover what’s happening within (dairy-, wine-, and sugar-face are all common diagnoses), along with blood tests, stool samples, and a deep but gentle line of questioning to get at underlying issues before she works her magic. What follows is customized to your skin and body: radiofrequency, bespoke peels, LED, oxygen-infused antioxidants, vitamin or peptide infusions, and more. You’ll walk out of the treatment room looking fresh and renewed, but note that these are no ordinary facials or one-off treatments. Talib gives each of her patients “homework”—lifestyle and dietary changes to make and maintain for long-term healthy, beautiful skin. (If you can't see her in person, you can also follow her tips on Instagram.)
Angela Caglia Skin Spa
Private Beverly Hills location, email [email protected] for appointment
This serene French-inspired oasis is tucked away in Beverly Hills. Caglia herself has over twenty years of experience and a touch that’s both soothing and assertive, and she customizes her facial to suit any concern. Microphoto treatment tightens pores, radiofrequency lifts, peels help tone and soften discoloration, and a massage with a rose quartz roller helps drive in Caglia’s beautiful botanical infusions. You amble out completely rejuvenated.
9001 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills
We go here for gua sha treatments (an ancient massage technique in which a rose quartz tool is smoothed across the face for brightening, smoothing effects), microneedling, facial cupping, microdermabrasion, and more. The mother of all treatments, though, is the Transformational Facial Ceremony, 90 minutes of skin-energizing, pore-refining, high-vibrational bliss. You start off lying on a healing infrared-heated BioMat embedded with amethyst crystals. Then comes a triple microexfoliation session, followed by LED light therapy, nourishing serums, and ointments galore, topped off with a thirty-minute chakra healing treatment.
Sonya Dakar Skin Clinic
9975 S. Santa Monica Blvd., Beverly Hills
Legendary aesthetician Sonya Dakar’s famously firm touch (she uses more than a little elbow grease) is in full force at her gorgeous five-story clinic. Her team of aestheticians are masters at restoring balance to even the most finicky complexions with a menu of phytic acid peels (derived from legumes, phytic acid is packed with antioxidants), healing infrared therapies, and more. The Total Lift facial is especially fantastic: Radiofrequency heats collagen fibers for an awesome tightening effect. Post-facial, there’s nothing better than hanging out on the clinic’s roof deck overlooking Beverly Hills while sipping one of the protein smoothies.
Kát Rudu Beauty Beverly Hills
436 N Roxbury Dr., Ste PH, Beverly Hills
Even one trip to skin guru Kát Rudu’s sleek Venice studio can change your skin. (The gorgeous Rudu, with her impossibly poreless complexion, is her own best advertisement.) Combining the purest healing botanical ingredients—soothing chamomile extracts, brightening papaya enzymes, hydrating aloe—with corrective modalities like CO2 lasers, microneedling, and radiofrequency, the facials here are deep and utterly transformative.
