Sunseekers who visit Body Glo Tan will discover two ways to give their skin that fresh-from-the-beach look. Three different styles of UV beds and booths not only trick the skin into thinking it's succumbed to the ministrations of the sun, but they also keep the body comfortable with ventilation and cooling systems. Alternatively, the misters in the Australian Gold spray tanning system are guided by lasers for extra precision, coating skin with a bronze-coloured sheen in under three minutes. This drip-free solution creates tans that last up to 10 days, though it may feel like 30 days if your parents are in town visiting.
Once guests arrive, they step across sleek, dark-wood floors before checking in at a granite-topped desk. Staff members keep up-to-date by attending seminars and other forms of continuing education so they can match their clients up with the best tanning options available.

Acolytes follow their special regimen for developing and deepening a tan, which combines consistent use of lotion with a program of sacrificing ugly bikinis to Apollo and alternating UV beds from Soltron. These include an upright VHR booth that radiates 11,000 watts to quickly create a glow, and fully air conditioned Queen Berry bed. Their power is enhanced by serums from Designer Skin, Swedish Beauty, and Pauly D, and subverted by Sjolie sunless bronzer, a PETA-certified, vegan airbrush tanning solution. The staff's devotion to health has led them to stay open until 10 p.m. on weeknights and to keep their tanning rooms in immaculate condition.
