Whether you told your family you couldn't make Thanksgiving because you were in the Bahamas or are a vampire trying to fit in, a good spray tan will help you deflect unwelcome questions without unwanted UV rays. Today's deal gets your skin a quality airbrushing at Salon Genesis for $15 (a $35 value).
Salon Genesis airbrush spray tans work best if you begin with a shower and exfoliation to clear your skin of makeup, perfume, deodorant, and microscopic metropolises. From there, you can get sprayed in your swimsuit, undies, topless, or nude. After a few minutes under fans and watching cable TV, you'll be dried off and ready to go home. For best results, forgo jeans for something loose and billowy, such as a parachute or an Afghan rug. Stay completely dry for the rest of the day and take a rinse-only shower the morning after. After that, you're golden skin will radiate goldeness.
Salon Genesis technicians have performed more than 10,000 spray tans. The spray works wonders for any skin color and type and is long lasting, especially if you keep your skin moisturized. Salon Genesis is the only salon both used and endorsed by local dermatologists, plastic surgeons, dance studios, and Civil War recreationists. Everyone is allowed to buy two, so treat your most pallid pal's skin to a holiday honey-coloring.
Reviewers on Yahoo! Local give Salon Genesis 4.5 natural-looking bronze stars:
- I am a self proclaimed spray tan junkie and I have tried every salon in town... I am very, very, very happy that I have finally found my "spray tan home"! – spraytanjunkie
- My mom and I are both weekly clients. My moms skin is naturally tan while mine is very, very fair. The results for both of us are exactly what we want. – allisonwieties
- I went to Salon Genesis this past week for my first spray tan ever. I was really nervous since I had never done it before and I was getting my bridal portraits done... I was so excited when I saw my tan. – Marcy
At more than 30 locations in the Houston area, clients check in at marble-fronted reception desks to meet with a member of Darque Tan's International Smart Tan Network—staff trained to determine the best path to their bronzing goals. Sessions take place in private rooms that line a column-flanked hallway, where five different levels of UV beds give skin the perfect level of tanning. Mystic Tan and VersaSpa sunless-tanning systems imbue clients with a hydrating, natural-looking glow, which can be customized according to skin tone, desired shade, and spirit animal. A full-time cleaning staff keeps each center in pristine conditions by referencing a 50-point inspection system. Most locations have books, televisions, and kids’ play areas to keep children entertained while adults are bronzing.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo 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 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.
Glo Sun Spa keeps a slew of modern bronzing, polishing, and hydrating technologies in peak condition. With a variety of tanning beds, Glo Sun Spa provides a wide range of sun-kissed glows. Alternatively, sunless VersaSpa and Pura Sunless systems provide a tan away from the sun's rays. The hydration station combines Hydrofusion with steam and LED technology to moisturize and tan epidermises, and the Lumiere Excel system features a series of repairing, clearing, and firming regimens. Glo Sun Spa also stocks a full line of lavish skincare products from brands such as Devoted Creations.
