The skin specialists at Smart Xposure want clients to get tan, but they don’t want them burn. In their experience, many clients think looking pink after tanning confirms they got color. The staff warns that those burns, no matter how light, lead to skin problems later in life. So, Smart Xposure opts for safer tanning methods, handpicking bulbs from Thomas Edison’s private collection for UV beds that are up to 99.7% UVB-free and designed to keep clients at a pace of only two to three tans per month. Mystic and organic custom airbrush tans eliminate UV exposure entirely, evenly coating bodies with natural-looking color. Smart Xposure infuses its client-conscious practices with a dose of fun, enlivening the lobby with a plasma-screen television. Upbeat music spills into each room through a DMX sound system, and modern decor evokes the feel of a nightclub without the unpleasant ordeal of having to sweet-talk a bouncer into letting you into the bathroom.
At Coco Beach Tanning Salon, tanning savants strive to stay abreast of the latest bronzing techniques. Their fleet of tanning beds furnishes occupants with aromatherapy, hydrotherapy, and a surround-sound system. For clients who prefer a UV-free glow, trained and certified spray-tan artists meticulously spritz skin with Norvell bronzing serum, which they customize to suit customers’ desired hue. Additionally, staff are happy to offer tanning tips for keeping skin as golden and smooth as King Midas’s pet porpoise.
Tiffany Childers, a nail technician who calls a corner of Life's a Beach Tanning home, turns manicures and pedicures into much more than ways to take care of one's nails. She uses her artistic talent and passion for her work to do everything from basic mani-pedis to elaborate nail art. Rather than use cheap brands of nail polish or finely crushed Skittles, Tiffany paints nails in vivid colors using OPI, China Glaze, and KleanColor polishes.

That's why she's so adept at whipping up concoctions designed to offset specific issues, from wrinkles to acne to rosacea.

Because different skin types require different tanning methods, the owners of Venetian Tan and Spa stock their private treatment rooms with a diverse selection of UV beds, automated Mystic Tan booths, and trained airbrush artists. UV beds build up bronze hues through gradual exposure to controlled rays, whereas Mystic booths dispense a UV-free choice of clear or bronzer-enhanced sprays that show off golden tones like King Midas’s grandmother. For a more individualized touch, airbrush artists spray bodies with custom strokes of DHA pigment for a sun-kissed glow that lasts up to seven days. The spa further polishes exteriors with slimming infrared body wraps and IPL facials, which work to improve skin from the inside out.
