Arlington Heights' Bronze Tan earns high marks among choosy tanners for its Smart Tan–certified staff, its modern standup and lie-down beds, and high-quality Australian Gold and Designer Skin lotions. Where Bronze Tan truly excels, though, is in its cleanliness. To ensure that no germs remain, staffers use hospital-grade sanitizer on every bed after every use. They also maintain a strict daily cleaning routine for the treatment rooms, bathrooms, and lobby that have earned them high praise from both the health department and Mary Poppins.
Inside Ultimate Exposure Tanning Centers' Chicagoland locations, a full lineup of UV- and spray-tanning equipment infuse skin with a healthy summer glow year-round. Individual sessions in the automated spray-tanning booths—such as VersaSpa—or UV beds gild bodysuits for nights on the town, and unlimited monthly packages fashion a continuous golden hue previously only available to sunbathing satellites. The salon stocks a variety of tan-accelerating lotions from Swedish Beauty, Australian Gold, and Designer Skin, which deepen bronze hues and moisturize skin to fashion a long-lasting radiance.
Open 24 hours a day, XSport Fitness gilds pallid patrons with sunless Mystic Tan and VersaSpa systems as well as regularly relamped UV beds. With Mystic Tan and VersaSpa spray-tan sessions, unstained patrons stand in private booths while a moisturizing mist sweeps over the skin, bestowing the body with the healthy golden glow of a Spanish doubloon polished up for a night on the town. In about two minutes, airbrushes apply a natural tone that can be customized according to body size, skin type, and desired color. The formula imbues dermises with a bronze, line-free tan without the hassle of spending all summer loitering around sandcastle hard-hat zones.
