Besides covering your body in beige post-its, there are two primary ways to get a rich, deep tan without exposure to UV rays: bronzers and self-tanners. Based on a combination of moisturizer and tinted powder, bronzers stain the skin to darken
With locations spanning Oklahoma City, Midwest City, and Norman, Sandy Beaches Tanning helps keep Sooner State bodies looking summer-ready all year round. Beds by brands such as Ovation, Solaris, and Acclaim HP comprise four tiers of conventional bulb tanning, or Mystic Tan airbrush booths rely upon the body's own magnetic properties to attract the customized formula in a way that helps it adhere evenly to every curve, crease, and prime meridian. To help clients keep up their sun-drenched demeanor between visits, Sandy Beaches also stocks each location's shelves with a large selection of tanning lotions, which customers can learn more about thanks to a biweekly lotion review posted on the business's facebook page.
With five levels of beds offering different degrees of bronzing and features such as aromatherapy, Caesars Tan provides effective, relaxing tanning sessions. To accommodate UV-free tanners, the staffers here mist bods from head to toe with airbrush tanning, and they keep skin rejuvenated with red-light therapy beds. Rounding out their beautifying services are body wraps, lash extensions, and facials, as well as an onsite boutique that offers swimwear, jewelry, hats, sunglasses, and more.
Professional airbrushing technician Joni Yeager has been building her body of work for eight years. She offers a natural tan to customers unable to spend the time basking in a tanning bed or wary of wear and tear on skin from exposure to the sun and sand paper-lined waterslides. Her sunless-tanning service uses a handheld airbrush to cover titillated tanners from head to toe in approximately 15 minutes. A single airbrush tan ($30) bronzes each body without the after-effects of orange pulp or tinting, and a package of two sunless sessions symmetrically extends the aesthetic benefits. Her spacious lobby can accommodate parties of 10 or more, including bridal parties or groups of 50 friends out for a suffragettes' committee meeting.
