For a sunny glow in the off-season, tan-seekers needn't travel south, or open the mason jar of sunbeams they pickled months prior.

The warming glow of a horizontal or vertical UV bed will impart an even, all-over tan. The technician-wielded airbrush machines, meanwhile, dispatch a customized mist of gold. Non-tan options include body wraps designed to relax and detoxify.

Here, color-thirsty skin can bask in a Level 1 Solaris bed—fortified with three face tanners for an extrabronze visage—or drink up an even tone in the standup SunScape 756. Alternatively, tanning techs, who come armed with up to seven years of spritzing experience, can mist bodies by hand with a UV- and chemical-free blend of açaí berries, sugar, beets, and aloe vera. In as little as five minutes, this custom tan infuses skin with a streak-free glow that lasts for up to seven days and eschews the fake orange tinge rendered by the antiquated sunless-tanning method of making out with a bag of cheetos.
