Fully automatic AutoBronzer tanning booths give vocal instruction in English, Spanish, or French as they politely guide guests through five-minute tanning sessions. Stationed in private rooms, tanners strike upright sunbathing poses as four nozzles mist one of three shades onto physiques in even, streak-free coats. Each booth's open-air design speeds drying time, boosts comfort, and gives patrons' pet balloons plenty of room to roam.

With your month of unlimited tanning, you can usurp a summary glow while standing up in one of Hollywood's state-of-the-art HT60 booths.

Shirking the frills of contemporary spas, The Skin Loft focuses solely on smoothing bodyscapes quickly, efficiently, and safely, and learning to snag salon supplies from dangerous honey-wax bears.

Growing up in Nigeria, Victoria Onwuchekwa became familiar with the treatment of human-health issues at a young age. That's because pharmacology was her family's legacy—her mother was one of the first female pharmacists in the nation. Advised by her mother to “do something to benefit your people,” Onwuchekwa earned degrees in physiology and pharmacology. Then, she earned a master's of science degree in industrial pharmacy and cosmetic science and began designing bath and body products for a company she named Chic Afrique Herbals.
In her West Philadelphia laboratory, Onwuchekwa fuses modern cosmetic technology with traditional African ingredients such as shea butter and sweet-almond oil to produce natural products that moisturize and protect the skin and hair. Among her creations are jojoba-rich Odara moringa conditioning hair food, enriched black soap that deep cleans with a luxurious lather, and Oyin honey butter, a natural emollient. Dermatologist-approved and never tested on animals, the company's products are made in small batches and packaged by hand.
