As an alternative to baking in the sun’s harmful rays, Laura of Spray Tan Glow N Go opened her speedy spray tan shop. At her immaculately clean home-studio, she mists figures with safe, skin-nourishing Aviva Labs spray tans in a matter of minutes. She chooses Aviva Labs because it’s free of oil, fragrances, and alcohol, and is 100% vegan. It’s also an all-natural, hypoallergenic solution that dries fast, meaning her clients can pop in on their lunch breaks or in between errands and be on their way.
Island Tan OC believes everyone looks better with a tan, and it helps clients achieve that sun-kissed glow with traditional horizontal tanning beds, standup booths, and spray tanning. Its gold-level standup booth keeps bodies cool with body fans, which circulate air more efficiently than staffers frantically waving their arms. Bronze-level reclining beds come with client-controlled facial tanners, and Mystic Tan spray booths and custom airbrush bronzing offer UV-free options. After a gilding session, patrons can further adorn their limbs with the shop's supply of bikinis, jewelry, and makeup.
Skin sports a year-round glow thanks to Electric Tan La Mirada, open seven days a week. The salon offers traditional UV tanning in a variety systems, from low-pressure beds that create base tans, to leg-specific tanners for lower bodies and tentacles. The Smart Tan-certified staff helps clients pick out the perfect lotion to extend the life of a UV tan or determine which level of sunless solution is best during a Mystic Tan spray session.
Totally Tanning knows that tanning services are not one size fits all. That's why its knowledgable staff offers a multitude of options. Four kinds of tanning beds bronze bodies at different intensity levels and include modern touches such as MP3 compatibility and aromatherapy. Those looking for a UV-free alternative can step into the Mystic Tan booth—where oscillating airbrushes coat bodies with aloe-vera-enriched tanning solution—or can enlist a spray technician for a custom airbrush-tanning session that uses solutions from Evolv and Infinity Sun.
A tan can accomplish a lot for the skin: it can add a golden luster, highlight muscle tone, and even hide imperfections. The one thing it shouldn’t do, however, is damage skin. Experts such as Kim at Spray Tan California assist clients in protecting their skin and making it look the way they want it to look. Kim is an expert in sunless sprays, so she can custom apply two layers of safe, hypoallergenic, oil-free DHA sprays to skin to bring out a glowing color that stays for up to seven days. She can apply the color in just 15 minutes at her studio or remotely at a place of her client’s choosing—just not at the National Archives in front of the perfectly tan Declaration of Independence. With this process, she ensures that tan lines disappear in time for special occasions.
