U-CA-TAN is an area favorite, earning second place for Best Tanning in 2008 from CityVoters. Its Mystic Tan is the original and patented spray tan, bronzing and gilding bodies without UV in 30 seconds. Once a person steps into the booth, his or her whole body will be immediately saturated with an aloe-vera-based solution that bronzes humans like a pair of baby shoes. Around six hours later, the spray-on-awesome will develop into a golden, natural-looking tan that will inspire envy from beach bums and pool hobos. With proper care, hides can remain tanned and toned for several days, giving clients a temporary color that's better for the skin than standard sunning.
