Within Sun Kissed Tan and Spa’s pristinely clean facilities, bronzing specialists darken skin tones with UV-free spray-tanning sessions flawlessly matched to each client’s most flattering shade. Prior to each spritzing, bronze seekers can choose their tanning preference—a subtle hint of color, a medium glow, or a deep tropical tan—and toss on a swimsuit, skivvies, or a perforated parka. Tanning technicians then take about 20–30 minutes to douse skinscapes in a safe golden mist, leaving skin perfectly sun smooched for an average of five to seven days. After treatment, clients should avoid showering or streaking through car washes for at least six hours.
Since its beams targeted their first complexion in October 1997, the tanning spa has gold-plated countless fair silhouettes. Customers may opt to recline on the beds in private suites, or step into a spray booth for a UV-free tan. Nozzles dispense molecules of Aviva tan elixir, which is odorless and comprised of natural ingredients such as distilled sunshine. Red light therapy is also available to revivify aging or tired faces. To continue the tanning process, customers can purchase a bottle of tanning lotion from Sun Catchers’ selection to take home.
At age 13, Jacqueline designed a science-fair project focused on age management, having developed a fascination for skincare by watching her mother and grandmother go through their daily beauty regimens. As Jacqueline grew up, she took that passion and became a licensed master aesthetician, opening Jacqueline Jase Face & Body Center in 2009. The center is named in part for her mother and grandmother—Jane and Rose—who Jacqueline names as the two most influential women in her life. Today, Jacqueline fights aging and nourishes skin with facials and herbal wraps, swaddling clients in natural and organic products from brands such as Bioelements. She also applies Nufree Hair Removal to legs and arms to remove unwanted hair, and fastens NovaLash extensions to eyelids to create longer, denser lashes. Realizing a connection between stress and skin deterioration, Jacqueline became a licensed massage therapist in 2010 and now relieves stress and chronic aches with Swedish and deep-tissue modalities.
Standup booths, lay-down beds, and VersaSpa tanning equipment line the private treatment rooms at TanFabulous, yielding many pathways to achieving a richer shade of skin. With four tiers of UV-tanning rays and three levels of spray-tanning mist to choose from, customers can pinpoint the exact hue of bronze they desire. The higher tiers of UV beds feature upgrades to enhance your tanning experience; among these, SunBreeze triple air-conditioning systems keep temperatures cool, aromatherapy infusions soothe the senses, and facial boosters send rays to hard-to-reach spots on the face and neck. The salon’s automated VersaSpa tanning booths spritz bodies with layers of bronzing solutions and drying jets of air. The DHA-based solutions couple with anti-aging moisturizers to ensure that skin retains the color of a deep-fried onion ring without its crunchy texture.
With five tanning booths and three Level 3 tanning beds, Indian Summer Tanning Spa Ltd. makes it easier than ever to maintain a summer-like glow year round. Each booth and bed is FDA-approved and entirely devoid of carbohydrates and builds tans that may be aided by the shop's selection of moisturizers, lotions, and tanning accelerators. For those who prefer to steer clear of UV rays altogether, private rooms host spray tans by appointment, and skin is coated in a flawless finish using oil-free, alcohol-free, and paraben-free formulas from Aviva Labs. These same formulas were used to create a healthy, bronzed sheen on the 2012 Dancing with the Stars contestants. The hypoallergenic solutions create sun-kissed shades that develop over 24 hours and typically last 7–10 days, depending on how often the client exfoliates and moisturizes his or her skin.
Spray Tans by Jen differs from its salon counterparts in one notable way—it isn’t a salon at all. The company’s experienced tanning technician travels throughout Worcester County, taking her portable pop-up tent to clients’ homes or to their vacationing neighbors’ backyards. There, she uses a spray gun to mist an organic, paraben-free tanning formula evenly across skin. Each tan is customizable according to skin type, makeup routine, and desired level of darkness. The technician can also add the sweet scent of coconut or caramel to leave bodies smelling as good as they look.
