With dozens of locations sprinkled around the sunshine state, California Sun makes it easy for tanners to bronze without fear of sunburn. As sunless bathers daydream within two levels of Ergoline beds, melanin rises to the skin's surface at the beck and call of a high-pressure cooling system or adjustable face tanners, leaving bodies with a golden glow in just 10–12 minutes. For those who prefer the misty kiss of a sunless spray tan, formulas by VersaSpa, Mystic Tan, or Norvell grace guests with new shades that can last from four to seven days and won't leave skin looking unnaturally orange or supernaturally blue.
Amazing Tans, celebrating its 18-year anniversary, furnishes its interiors with a range of cutting-edge tanning beds and booths. The studio's Matrix, Sun Board, and Velocity beds filter out 98% of UVB rays?the rays responsible for reddening skin. Aside from tanning beds, Magic Tan and Mystic Tan standup tanning booths mist bodies in UV-free sunless tanning formulas, transforming pasty hues into even, natural-looking bronze tones. Tanning and skincare products are available for purchase, including Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Amazing Face bronzers and moisturizers.
Healthy Tan Airbrush Tanning gives clients a natural-looking glow without harmful UV radiation. During an approximately 20- to 40-minute session, the trained technicians mist pasty physiques with Aviva Labs’ water-based, hypoallergenic tanning solution. The DHA cocktail interacts with the amino acids and proteins in skeleton-wrappers to produce a streak-free tan customized to the shade each individual desires. With proper exfoliation and moisturizing maintenance, the sun-kissed look can last for five to seven days. In order to promote awareness of the potentially harmful effects of sunbathing on Earth or the surface of Helios himself, the studio donates 5% of its profits to the Skin Cancer Foundation.
For more than 20 years, the certified staffers at California Tan have added pop to pigment within an office basking under the West Coast sunshine. In addition to offering 12 beds with four levels of tanning, they can design custom tanning plans that gradually build up a richer complexion over time. To augment the warm glow of the bed lights, they provide lotions by Designer Skin, California Tan, and Australian Gold. They also house a UV-free VersaSpa spray-tanning booth, which evenly slicks standing bodies with a deluxe bronzing potion. To complete the day-on-the-beach feeling, they lead guests to their SpaCapsule dry aqua massager that kneads newly tanned backs using 28 water jets.
In addition to tanning and massage services, they carry swimwear, including two-piece bathing suits, perfect for beach outings or informal State of the Union addresses. They also stock their shelves with vitamins and dietary supplements to ensure the inside of the body is as attractive as the outside is.
The instructors at Spray Tan Education bestow students with the know-how and certification necessary to perform airbrush tanning and teeth-whitening services. During efficient four-hour tanning courses, students soak up lessons in skin types, equipment, and tanning products, as well as marketing and advertising tips to use when starting their own mobile tanning or whitening business. Teeth-whitening courses teach how to assess enamel shades, how LED blue light technology works, and how to prepare clients for treatments. Instructors in both courses guide learners with plenty of hands-on training.
Behind each door in R U Tan's spa-like facilities lie state-of-the-art tanning beds that vary in strength and style. The tanning center's certified consultants can help bronze enthusiasts select the best bed for their skin type or help assemble a tanning plan that combines sessions in the standup bed, the plush Extreme bed, or the Hydration Station bed that resembles Woody Allen's time-traveling vessel in Sleeper. Experienced spray-tanning techs provide an alternative to UV-ray bathing by instantaneously coating the skin in an even, natural-looking tone.
