Inside the Smart Tan–certified Tanners Paradise, trained technicians help clients achieve golden skin in their tanning beds and spray-tan booths. Beds from Voyager, 32 Express, and Focus encapsulate tanners in UV light in order to build a natural-looking tan. Accelerators from such brands as Designer Skin and Luminary boost the effectiveness of tanning, while infusing skin with nutrients and moisture. Meanwhile, MagicTan booths spray an aloe- and DHA-infused solution from 40 nozzles, evenly bronzing skin without UV rays or industrial-smelling varnish.
Professional aestheticians Lindsey and Chris each arrived at Blush Beauty Spa and Brow Bar from different directions. Lindsey's history with severe acne?and a lack of empathy from her cosmetologists?inspired her journey. Chriss, meanwhile, sees the human body as a canvas that he can make more beautiful, which aligns with his lifelong passion for the arts. Their separate approaches combine to create a chic and inclusive spa and salon. Services include body and facial waxing, skincare and peels, and makeup and lashes. Check out their beauty tips for a helpful guide to DIY beauty care.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas?its more than 250 locations blanket 36 states and eight countries?Planet Beach Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
