Win VIP Tickets to the Patriotic Festival!

Jake-Owen

Do you love live music? Tanning? Winning free prizes? So do we! To be exact, we love when our members come to our locations around Hampton Roads and bring their friends to tan with us. We love it so much we celebrate by giving away tickets to the coolest events in the area. Recently we gave out passes for the Pungo Wine Festival to Sundays members who used their Buddy Passes, and now we scored some VIP tickets to the upcoming Patriotic Festival at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.

It’s easy to enter this contest. All you have to do is use your Buddy Pass and bring in your BFF, a co-worker, a relative…anybody who wants to try out one of our amazing tanning beds. You’re then automatically entered to win. Don’t wait too long, though, because the festival begins on Friday, June 2. You’ll want these VIP passes so you can see great live music with Old Dominion, Darius Rucker, and Jake Owen. See you soon!

Spray Tanning: Four Things You Need To Know Before You Go

We’re always happy when Sundays members recommend any of our twenty locations to friends interested in local spa services. Our experienced staff are on hand to answer questions about all the top of the line equipment we offer, from the Cocoon Detox Pod to the PhysEdge FIT System. When it comes to tanning, we like to think we’re the first place to go in Virginia Beach and Norfolk, and anywhere else in Hampton Roads.

Lately, we’ve been fielding questions about spray tanning from newcomers shy about using the beds. It’s okay to feel apprehensive about trying something new – at Sundays we’ve boldly moved forward to introduce new services and it’s worked out for us. We offer quality tanning beds and automated airbrush to our members because we know people should have a choice when it comes to presenting their best look to the world.

Screen-Shot

So you want to know more about spray tanning, how it works and how you’ll look after your first session? It is, of course, exactly what the name implies. Color is applied to your skin to give it an even, darker tone that leaves you looking as though you spent time in the sun. Spray tanning is good if you’re planning to attend a social event or a night out and want a healthy glow to complement your outfit and attitude, but aren’t yet ready to invest in regular tanning sessions.

It’s easy to do (and we’ll help you), and sunless tanning solution won’t stain your clothes or – contrary to what the comedians may tell you – “turn you orange.”

Spray Tanning: What You Should Know

1) Plan before you tan. If you know you’re going to make use of our Mystic or VersaSpa systems, it’s important wait 24 hours after showering, shaving or waxing, or getting a mani/pedi. Because the tanning solution needs to be absorbed into your skin, you don’t want any barriers preventing it. Lotions, deodorants, and cosmetics could interfere if you wear them in the booth.

2) Different “Strokes” for Different Folks. We want to stress that automated airbrush tanning is not a “one shade fits all” situation. Whether you choose VersaSpa or Mystic HD for your tanning experience, you can select a shade best suited to you. You can have a just kissed by the sun look or go darker for something more luminous and eye-catching.

3) You’ll have time to change positions in the booth. Yes, we’ve seen the TV shows where somebody unwittingly pauses in a booth and gets a double dose of bronzer in the face. It’s good for a laugh, but please don’t assume comedy reflects real life when it comes to sunless tanning. The automated system is set up in a way to allow you time to change positions so the spray gives you an all-over, even tan. If you’re new to this, don’t worry because we got your back. And sides.

4) The solution takes time to develop. When you leave the booth, you might wonder at first if it worked. While it only takes a few minutes to apply the tanning solution to your body, it will be a while before the color fully develops. After a few hours you’ll notice a change, and beyond that (typically 8-12 hours or longer) you’ll really see how the color looks on you.

For complete instructions on spray tanning, stop by any of our Sundays locations and ask. We’d love to see you.

We Did it Again! Sundays is Best of Hampton Roads

 

ThankYouGod

Once again you, our amazing members, have helped us win at the Pilot’s Best of Hampton Roads Readers’ Choice Awards. This year we took Gold for Best Tanning Salon in four city categories: Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, and Suffolk-Franklin-Isle of Wight. We couldn’t be happier for the staff at these and all our Sundays Sun Spa Shop locations, and of course everybody who has come in to check us out over the last few weeks. If you visited for the first time during our Nickel Days promotion or to meet Lil’ Bit, we hope you’ll come back and see what else Sundays has in store for you.

This is the 25th consecutive win for us (but who’s counting? ;-D), and it’s because of our members and staff and the community that we continue to offer our best. Who would have thought so many years ago that a simple tanning salon in Virginia Beach would grow into a chain spanning all of Hampton Roads, and provide top of the line massage and wellness services, too?

We don’t mean to humblebrag, either, but if you’ve seen our Best Of Hampton Roads banners and haven’t yet come into a salon, why not give us a try? With twenty locations there’s one close by, and you can experience for yourself what has people voting for us year and year.

Thank you again, and here’s hoping for another twenty-five years of success.

The Sunshine Vitamin is D-Lightful

sampler

At Sundays, we are all about the D. If you’re in school it’s not the grade you want to find on your test papers, but when it comes to optimal health, D is essential. D is the “sunshine vitamin,” in that your body naturally produces it when your skin is exposed to sunlight. A person getting the right amount of Vitamin D can enjoy a number of physical benefits:

  • Improved bone health
  • Promotion of circulatory health
  • Improved mood
  • Production of cancer-fighting agents
  • Boosted immune system

Use of a tanning bed can also help you with a needed dose of Vitamin D, and when you visit any of our twenty one locations around Hampton Roads we’ll be more than happy to assist you with any questions about our UV beds.

When you think about how much time you spend indoors – say, an average of eight hours at work plus eight hours asleep – it’s safe to say many of us don’t spend enough quality time in the light. By the time you punch out for the day, there’s not much sunlight left to enjoy. There are weekends and holidays, but is that enough?

The National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplements recommends that adults from 18-70 should intake at least 600 International Units (IU), or 15 micrograms, of Vitamin D a day. How do we determine the length of time spent in the sunlight to get our recommended daily allowance? It’s not a simple answer, because people are different. A person with fair skin won’t need as much time in the sun as somebody with dark skin. According to the Vitamin D Council, your body will generate the vitamin quickly, within minutes of exposure. This, of course, depends on how much skin is bared. A trip to the beach in a bathing suit gets results faster than if you go for a walk in less revealing clothes.

If you find you’re not getting enough Vitamin D, your body will eventually let you know. You may feel tired and achy, and have difficulty moving around. Prolonged deficiency of D can lead to serious health problems as well, including osteoporosis. It’s amazing to think that just ten minutes in the sun a day can help.

On days you can’t get out of the office or house, though, there are alternative ways to get your D. Ten minutes in a high-quality tanning bed, with the right lotion for your skin, is one method. At Sundays, we’re here to help you every step of the way. We’ll let you know which bed works best for you, which bronzers best match your skin type, and often you should tan if you want to keep your color. If you’re interested in a full spa package for improved wellness, ask any of our experts about the other features available at our salons, like red light therapy.

Our favorite vitamin is “d-lightful” and we hope you feel the same way. Make sure you get enough Vitamin D today.
