In the early days of running her tanning-bed business in Champaign, Illinois, Kristin Klinker became intrigued with advancements in sunless tanning. She soon began focusing her endeavors on high-end spray tanning, eventually expanding her enterprise into Naperville and going into business with her best friend and mother, Terri. At BodiBronze Sunless Spa, Kristin and her cohort of certified technicians coat clients in a sugar-based DHA solution that adheres to amino acids on the skin, creating a natural bronze that lacks the telltale orange color of old-school spray tans. Within the warm, goldenrod-hued walls of the Naperville studio, these certified tanning technicians help each client match their skin tone to a product, culminating in a bronzed, UV-free complexion that lasts up to 10 days
Fox Valley Tanning & Massage does its best to leave nothing to chance. When lamps in a fleet of UV beds reach 60% of their lifespan, staffers swap them out—ensuring no tanning session will leave guests in the dark. They have also corralled a VersaPro spray tan booth, a VersaSpa booth, and Mystic HD technology, which prevent streaking, prep the skin for better color, and provide refuge for out-of-work Super Soakers. In addition to bronzing patrons, the staff soothes internal woes with five massage modalities and Formostar infrared body wraps.
Beyond Bronzed first started as a mobile service with a small clientele before its technicians graduated to a brick-and-mortar shop. Today they draw on 10 years of experience while spray tanning, using certified organic solutions that brim with natural anti-aging components. The technicians apply these concoctions by hand to avoid the unsightly streaks that often occur when they are applied by soulless robots.
