A golden tan, like the sudden presence of ice-cream trucks, an uptick in shark activity, or the mass migration of snowmen, signals the onset of summer. Tan the hide without sun trauma with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a full-body Infinity Sun spray tan at Sugar Rays in Hermosa Beach (a $60 value).
The hue experts at Sugar Rays bronze bodies with a cane-sugar-derived ingredient, imparting golden glows without exposing clients to harmful UV rays. Each spray-tan application confers a custom color, calibrated based on clients’ preferences and skin type. The spray-tan solutions incorporate antiaging components such as botanical extracts, hydrating ingredients, and condensed baby laughter. A trained specialist loads the spray-tan mix into Infinity Sun hand-spray equipment, which cloaks the entire epidermis in even exposure, and the whole process takes about 20 minutes, the amount of time it takes to go bikini shopping or fold a bikini. Results can last 7–10 days, and the odorless, nonstreaking tan fades evenly.
Sugar Rays Studio
A bright colorful accent wall lends a sunny feel to Sugar Rays Studio—as does the fact that many customers emerge with fresh tans. Their tans are sunless, however; a product of the salon's organic sugar cane spray tan formula. Imbued with aloe and vitamin E, it nourishes skin while leaving behind a natural, even glow. The salon complements these organic tans with eco-friendly services like nails imprinted with 1,000-word essays on the benefits of hugging a tree.
