Multiple levels of tanning beds gradually bronze skins inside private rooms at Tanners Cove. Tanning accelerators available at reception can hasten the arrival of sun-kissed hues, and Magic Tan spray-tan booths spritz on golden color without exposure to UV light or glares from jealous wall sconces.
The Land Down Under is a continent set beneath a scorching sun—Australian Tan knows, just like Australians, how to harness the light to achieve glowing, bronzy skin. The salon’s faux sun comes from six different tanning booths. The most basic bed imparts a base tan in 20 minutes, while the Instant 770 imparts a rich, long-lasting hue in as few as 10. Meanwhile, the sunless spray-tanning booth houses an automatic system that sprays on UV-free color. Regardless of the chosen bed, the staff can complement sessions with bronzing lotions that enhance acquired tans or help an old trophy get through a midlife crisis with a refreshed façade. Each member of the staff goes through 35 hours of training prior to working in the salon, so they can easily tailor tanning plans to each customer.
Nestled between serene coastlines and redwood forests, Tradewinds Tanning & Day Spa houses a team of aestheticians and massage therapists that enthusiastically welcomes customers to relax and partake in various treatments. Numerous facials rejuvenate skin, and waxes remove unwanted body hair. Utilizing modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, and trigger point, massage therapists aim to relieve muscular tension and stress from thinking about one?s perpetually-burning backyard tire fire. Tanning beds in five different varieties are also available, and infrared body wraps aim to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
As their name makes clear, Tan aids its patrons in achieving a sun-kissed glow. A fleet of tanning beds, as well as the VersaSpa spray tan system, help to make skin beach-ready, while certified airbrush technicians use organic solutions to provide both color and contour.
To give bodies a golden glow, the certified technicians at deSoleil Spray Tanning employ Infinity Sun technology, which has shaded the skin of celebrities such as Britney Spears and Paula Abdul. The bronzing experts grasp precision spray guns that atomize the all-natural solution into a fine mist for even coverage and let them customize each tan to blend seamlessly with the specific sand castle in which the client is currently living. The solution, enriched with antioxidants and hydrating botanicals, yields a coppery luminescence that can last up to two weeks and fades uniformly rather than leaving streaks. DeSoleil Spray Tanning augments bronzing with pre- and post-tanning skin treatments that incorporate aloes and emollients to moisturize thirsty dermises, ensuring that skin maintains its soft feel and dewy appearance.
