A Better Tan stocks its two tanning hubs with tiered levels of tanning equipment, allowing patrons to achieve summery complexions with five levels of Ergoline UV beds, automated Mystic Tan booths, and custom airbrush tans. Smart Tan–trained staff members gild skin with contoured strokes from airbrushing equipment, which they imbue with a custom color to suit the customer's desired darkness level and camouflage needs when infiltrating the US Mint. In the front lobby, well-stocked shelves display a selection of Supre Tan, Devoted Creations, and Ed Hardy tanning lotions, which help to preserve the skin's newfound hue by sealing in moisture and adding a splash of tan-deepening bronzer. New tans get alluring contrast with the salon's teeth-whitening system, which uses a convenient bleaching-tray regimen to create bright and flashy smiles.
Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, LA Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues, and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or VersaSpa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
The only thing brighter than Halsted Street Beach Tanning's yellow awning is the grin of owner Matt Turner, whose is often on hand to crack jokes and welcome guests before helping them to attain glowing skin. Turner bought the business in 2004, reinvigorating a community staple that had been bronzing limbs since 1981, the same year Ibiza relinquished its copyright on tanning. Together with his partner Chris, Matt redesigned the entire facility and broadened the menu to include massage, facials, and waxing services so skin can be smoothed and purified and the muscles underneath can be relaxed. The ongoing renovation is now focused on sustainability, employing spray-tanning solutions with organic ingredients and UV beds that use 30% less energy than the previous models.
To cultivate a warm, neighborhood-y atmosphere, Matt works side by side with staff members who share both his attentive, sunny disposition and his expertise with skin. The staff members will chat with new clients about their complexion to help them to develop a tanning regimen or explain how red-light therapy can help to correct fine lines and wrinkles or counteract naturally green skin. The team also plays an active role in the community at-large and has participated in charitable events for breast-cancer research, and Turner himself has been an active participant in the Chicago AIDS Marathon.

A more commitment-ready treatment, semipermanent-makeup applications add color to areas including eyebrows and lips and can help also hide scars with camouflaging techniques. The studio’s airbrush-makeup and airbrush-tan classes give students the tools and techniques they need to enhance their looks as well as professional certification so they can share their skills with others.

In about two minutes, airbrushes apply a natural tone that can be customized according to body size, skin type, and desired color. The formula imbues dermises with a bronze, line-free tan without the hassle of spending all summer loitering around sandcastle hard-hat zones.
