Diana Rosure, Kelly's Spa
If time is running down on your plans to have a sleek, well-defined body by summer, Diana Rosure, director of Kelly's Spa at The Mission Inn in Riverside, says not to worry. A well-applied tanning solution, tweaked here and there for emphasis, can give you appearance of celebrity-sleek definition.
"Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson are known to use this trick," says Rosure, who joined Kelly's Spa in 2007 after serving as the opening operations manager at the spa at the Hotel del Coronado in her hometown, San Diego.
It won't give you "six-pack-abs", Rosure says, buyt it can make you look a little firmer by shading certain areas. Tanning runs about $55. Rosure says most people start with a "lipo massage," a non-invasive procedure that trims your shape and reduces the appearance of cellulite. It takes about 40 minutes and costs about $95, though Rosure says best results come after several treatments.
Spending a couple of hours on themselves is something busy women sometimes feel guilty about, Rosure says. "Women still see themselves as care givers, not receivers." But taking some time for yourself can relieve stress and boost your confidence.
"That's what I enjoy most about my job," says Rosure, a one-time biology student who chose a career in hospitality management because she enjoys being around people.
"I see clients come in weary, but they leave happy, rejuvenated. and ready to take on the world. I love that."
