With warmer temperatures and summer sunshine on the way, now is the time to get ready for that warmer weather with a deep, great-looking tan.
That's what many customers at Body Glo Tan in Blundell Centre do at this time of year.
"It's less likely that you will burn if you get a base tan before going outside," explains salon manager Nicole Herbert.
"While that takes a little bit of time - usually two or three times a week - you are doing it in a controlled environment over short sessions."
And while current public health restrictions prohibit travel to sunny destinations outside of the country, a trip to Body Glo can act as a quick "getaway."
"A lot of people who'd normally be coming in for their base tans are still getting them done and are considering it a mini 'staycation,'" Herbert says.
"They are going to Hawaii or Mexico for 12 minutes in a tanning bed.
"So, even though they are not building a base tan for an upcoming vacation, they are getting the same warmth with UV exposure, which is also good for their mental health if they struggle with winter blues."
When you book a tanning session at Body Glo Tan, there's plenty of options.
"We have two different types of lay-down and stand-up tanning beds," Herbert adds. "They range from seven to 15-minute maximums, which means it's pretty powerful, giving deeper, longer-lasting colour. They are speedy and efficient.
Those preferring an option to a tanning bed can try Body Glo's spray tan booth.
"We provide sprays done by a professional spray tanning technician.
"And the best thing about their technology is that everything they use has a violet undertone, which means no one can accidentally turn orange no matter what colour skin you have," she explains. "You will always look flawlessly bronzed.
"People can be worried about looking like an Oompa Loompa, but they'll never get to that level."
Customers can also feel confident and safe knowing the salon adheres to all required COVID-19 safety protocols, which includes:
