South Seas makes the tanning products of choice for Hollywood movie sets and hit TV shows, thanks to their natural bronze shades and natural fading. But clients at Spray on Vacation achieve the same celebrity look every day: tanning technicians here use a handheld device to airbrush the UV-free solution across the whole body for a gentle glow that lasts up to six days or until the next time your body goes through seasonal molting. Consummate experts in their field, the tanning team also publishes a list of tips to help ensure their clients' tans last as long as possible.
At Hollywood Tans, tanning experts darken skin and bronze dermises with state-of-the-art UV beds and UV-free spray-tan booths. Using a technique called tanetics, staffers help patrons optimize their tans by evaluating skin tone, sun sensitivity, and tanning goals before compiling the information into a recommended tanning regimen. A trio of upright booths recolors bodies in 8-, 10-, or 11-minute intervals, while UV-free tans use a mixture of DHA, bronzers, and moisture to darken skin with even, custom tans that last for five to seven days, much like the sincerest hugs.
Four massage modalities spring from the fingers of the relaxation gurus at Thai Kinnara Day Spa, where scrubs and facials add to the experience while supplying skin-boosting results. Enchanted fingers surf across backs during the Swedish massage, boosting circulation and holding pressure to a medium intensity that makes the technique popular with fragile Kewpie dolls and newcomers to massage. The Thai massage stretches bodies into yoga-like poses to invigorate sinews and relax their grip on knots. Massage-like motions also power the body scrub, which whisks away dead skin cells and slathers hides in aromatic essential oils to leave skin silky and hydrated. Clients can also purify complexions and plumb pores with a speedy facial that leaves skin as fresh as a shampooed tomato.
