Americans have sought alternative tanning sources ever since the sun went rogue and started burning nonwitches in the early '70s. Bronze your bod sans the sun with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a full-body Infinity Sun custom airbrush-tanning session (a $40 value) at Tropic Tan in Tustin.
Tropic Tan's custom airbrush-tanning sessions utilize one of two tanning solutions to imbue epidermal layers with a sun-kissed appearance that can range from light to dark bronze. A clear solution of antioxidants and pure botanicals bestows a rub-resistant glow to the integumentary system that begins to appear about four hours after the treatment.
Pale submarine crews can slather their bodies with a solution containing a cosmetic bronzer derived from walnut extract to immediately enrich the appearance of their human hides while the spray tan takes hold underneath. This bronzing agent will rub off onto clothing, although a quick shower removes any traces of it from skin and memory alike. For both solutions, the spray tan fully develops within 8–12 hours, leaving bodies gleaming like Grecian urns coated in liquid sunshine.
Eight Citysearchers give Tropic Tan an average rating of four stars:
- I was very impressed with her care and the tan was flawless - far better than I have experienced with Mystic Tan. I had two positive comments the next day on how tan I was. – ScoJo
Tropic Tan's equipment does more than just turn pale hides into bronze bodies with traditional beds. Their four levels of tanning beds, including a standup unit, are joined by custom spray tans and natural-looking Mystic tans. Beyond tanning, their red-light-therapy beds stimulate the production of collagen to help smooth wrinkles, treat depression, reduce scarring, or halt speeding cars. The staff also helps clients slim down quickly with infrared body wraps.
