San Francisco's newest hotspot for getting that just-visited-Miami look is Organic Shimmer Spa. It's the brand's second SF location (the first is on Union in the Marina). Now all you startup folks slaving away under fluorescent lights can get a little color: It's located in SOMA directly across from Zynga, and the grand opening was January 27.
In addition to tanning, Organic Shimmer offer facials, massage, threading, waxing, mink eyelash extensions and more. Look for personal treatment rooms, state-of-the-art airbrush equipment, a luxe Vichy shower room for full-body treatments, and ultra high-end products including Eminence Organic Skin Care and Cosmedix. The tanner is toxin, paraben and preservative free. And if you're into an old-school "real" tan, they've got a custom-built 100%-UVA tanning solarium.
