Technology has rendered nature's hazards all but obsolete, as we no longer need to burn in the sun to achieve a tan or stand in a lightning storm to jump-start a toaster oven. Tint your tegument using the latest technology with today's Groupon to Portofino BH in Santa Monica. Choose between the following options:
- For $59, you get a custom airbrush tan with a scent shimmer prespray and contouring (a $120 value).
- For $69, you get three sessions in a high-pressure bronzing bed (up to a $297 value).
Washed-out bodies can achieve an instant beachy bronze with the help of customized color airbrush enhancements and high-pressure tanning beds at Portofino's hueing boutique. The custom airbrush tan begins with a preconditioning treatment to hydrate and balance pH levels, followed by an illuminating shimmer prespray, which comes with a choice of more than 40 fragrances, including honeysuckle, mango sorbet, and diet cola. Next, expert coloristas will concoct a hue specialized for each skin tone from more than 255 available color combinations. The colors contour to each curve, accentuating favored features to create a golden, bikini-ready physique. The sunless scintillation usually lasts from 8 to 10 days.
Alternatively, hides can achieve a natural tint transformation in one of Portofino's high-pressure bronzing beds. A tanning consultant will analyze skin type based on coloring and desired results before determining the appropriate exposure time to forge an eye-catching golden hue (usually 5 to 20 minutes). With less UVB output and a lower risk of burning than the sun's rays, the beds swiftly swathe bodies in a deep, dark tan.
