Since 1996, the staff at The Sun Oasis Tanning Center has cultivated radiant skin through light therapy and a collection of skincare products. The team members have earned certifications from the American Tanning Institute, which enables them to offer visitors five levels of UV tanning and explain how different types of light can infuse tans with red, gold, or political undertones. Each staff member also bears a certification in Norvell spray tanning, and can reveal the chemical alchemy behind a sunless glow as they airbrush on bronzer. The center stocks lotions to develop and deepen color—such as paraben-free tonics from Swedish Beauty and the aloe-enriched Love DS line from Designer Skin—as well as makeup and products for general skin maintenance. During the winter, the staff welcomes guests to the center for an extra hour five days a week in response to shorter days and homes occupied by hibernating bears.
Smart Tan–certified Image Sun staff uses of a free skin-type analysis to determine the best tanning methods for every customer's natural coloring. The trained staffers then suggest which of the salon’s four levels of tanning beds possess the intensity to achieve the client's desired hue without burning their skin or angering the other person who showed up wearing a lobster costume. For clients wary of UV rays, the salon's spray-tanning options equip skin with bronze hues that last up to seven days or potentially longer with the aid of Norvell self-tanner, moisturizer, and tan-extender products available for purchase. Also on the shelves, a variety of Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Swedish Beauty tanning products infuse skin with natural botanicals that keep bodies softer than an alligator’s security blanket, and enhance tans’ lifespans.
In order to spread sunshine across Detroit dermises regardless of season, VIP Tanning keeps its tanning technology future-compatible and its salon clean enough to inspire envy among surgeons. The VersaSpa Professional Skincare System skips the burns and vulgar graffiti caused by old-fashioned star-based technologies and instead showers exposed skin with a pH-balancing and conditioning primer, followed by a spritz of bronzer and a hydrating and firming spray that locks in color and smoothes away fine lines. The air-purification system keeps the oxygen breathable, and the Comfort-Dry technology air-towels you off between sprays. The session takes ten to fifteen minutes, and the tan lasts up to seven days, commonly known as a “sevener.”
Chili Pepper's Tanning Inc. Megastores’ trophy case is getting full—in addition to being named one of Detroit’s best tanning salons three times in a row by CityVoter, it has acquired accolades from Local 4 and CBS Detroit, which commends its spray tanning. Its growing awards reflect Chili Pepper’s growth; since opening in 2002, Chili Pepper’s has expanded to 15 locations, spreading across Detroit like the buffalo pox.
In every location, five levels of tanning beds turn skin a sun-kissed gold or deep bronze. Mystic Tan sessions let customers avoid things associated with booth and outdoor tanning—UV rays and pool lifeguards who push you in the water to practice saving you. No matter which option they choose, patrons can turn to knowledgeable Smart Tan–certified staff members who help clients decide what is best for their tanning goals.

Stepping into Acapulco Tan is like hugging a sunbeam. Bright yellow walls surround the interior and lead guests into tanning rooms full of standup and lie-down beds. Along the way, Acapulco Tan's staff members advise visitors based on individual skin type, helping them select the perfect amount of tanning time at one of five available levels. For guests who wave away UV rays, the staff applies DHA spray tans by hand, ensuring smooth, even coverage. They also employ red-light therapy to target wrinkles or help customers face their phobia of getting briefly stopped in traffic.
