There are lots of ways to achieve a natural glow at Dunes Tanning Resort. The shop offers UV beds that range from Level 2 all the way up to Level 5, with staff helping clients select from the likes of a Level 3 Montego Bay standup bed and a Level 5 iP90 combo bed, which cools skin with a full-body spray. Alternatively, tanners may opt for a UV-free Mystic Tan spray tan, which uses special solutions to darken skin in a matter of minutes.
The bounty of hues to pick from—including cocoa, caramel, cappuccino, and mocha—make it hard to pick the most attractive skin-bronzing shade at Glow – The Bronzing Studio. In this tanning mecca, experienced airbrush artists shower skin with droplets of 100% organic tanning spray, which are tailored to the client’s original skin tone and the timing of events such as weddings, photo shoots, and vacations on the surface of the sun. Tanning beds emanate UVA and UVB rays to cultivate color, and red-light-therapy pods swathe the body in crimson rays that may boost circulation and counteract stress, helping the body activate adenosine triphosphate, a naturally occurring compound that may help liberate energy from muscles.
At Hollywood Tans, tanning experts provide dozens of routes to bronzed skin. Sleek, spacious vertical tanning booths deepen tans in eight minutes, and Mystic Tan booths spritz bodies with a custom bronzing serum that clings to skin for up to a week. Hollywood Tans’ line of shower gels, lotions, and tan amplifiers helps to preserve tans far more easily than never showering again. Staff members happily advise first-time tanners on the best skincare regimen or tanning tactics, and makeup artists accent golden skin with mineral makeup from the makeup bar.
Inside their colorful walls, the staffers of Electric Beach Tanning Company guide visitors toward their desired shades with UV or spray tanning and a handful of other services. Clients can lay out on powerful beds or stay standing for customized spray tans before a quick round of red-light or oxygen therapy reinvigorates the body. Beyond shelves and displays stocked with bronze-boosting lotions, a bank of red lockers stands to secure valuables and post-tanning cupcakes during services.
Though Planet Beach Contempo Spa employs two spa consultants, neither lifts a finger to perform any treatments. That’s because all of the spa’s services—massage, teeth whitening, tanning, skincare, and even weight management—are taken care of by a fleet of automated booths and capsules. Clients slip into the calorie-burning SlimCapsule or the bronzing Mystic spray-tanning booth in complete privacy, and many of the machines feature voice instructions to guide them through each treatment.
