Each membership level offers a distinct set of benefits, ranging from the simple tonal bliss of the basic bronze-level experience to the top-tier transformative power of lounge-chair tanning with the diamond package. Depending on the individual level and bed, guests can enjoy on-board amenities that may include the use of climate control, cool misting sprays, aromatic fragrances, and MP3 player inputs. Certain beds even have an open-air design to help alleviate feelings of claustrophobia and burritophobia, the fear of appearing delicious.
No streaks, no smell, no orange. Scrub & Tan's specialists promise to avoid these and other spray tanning pitfalls through their skilled application of an organic solution. Before airbrushing skin, they exfoliate the body and face with one of seven sugar-based scrubs infused with vegan ingredients before wiping the skin clean with warm towels. This process creates a smooth surface for the tanning solution to soak in as it creates a bronzed hue that is more natural-looking than a toddler cradling a bonsai tree. The Delray Beach shop also outfits clients with trendy boutique clothing that hangs elegantly from racks nestled between chic black furnishings and crystal chandeliers.
Comfort-Dry technology parches tan-dampened epidermises and saves shirts from unanticipated polka dotting. Boca Tanning Club is open 24 hours a day, welcoming guests with clean rooms and a comfortable lobby decked out with a flat-screen TV and a pair of chatty couches.
Open 24 hours a day, XSport Fitness gilds pallid patrons with the sunless Mystic Tan system as well as regularly relamped UV beds. With Mystic Tan 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.
The bronzing team at Sharper Image Tanning helps to cultivate sun-kissed skin with custom tans. Those whose flat-screen TVs fail to create quality at-home tans can imbue their epidermises with added glow during the sunless, UV-free session. After friendly staff members escort tan-seekers to private rooms, customers stand and splay arms while a bottled solution evenly coats the body, sweeping from side to side until it reaches the desired level of darkness.
At Del Sol of Mineola Tanning Salon, Smart Tan–certified professionals match tanners with products and methods for safely achieving tropical hues.

Bronzing and tanning lotions, including many products designed for sensitive skin, accelerate the efficacy of UV tanning. The salon also offers Norvell airbrush spray tans, which gild the skin without stimulating the body's natural production of melanin or 18-karat gold.
