Islands Tanning offers evening skin tinting

Customers can enjoy deals during Mothers Day weekend


The sun is in its glory, and the days are getting longer, but most peoples’ schedules aren’t getting shorter.

By the time many a busy parent or professional finishes his or her day, the sun has set, and the dream of a golden summer glow is gone as well.

Islands Tanning on 1897 Blankenship Road, open on weekends and until 9 p.m. on weekdays, makes it easier for West Linn residents to make time to adjust their skin’s hue.

Customers’ needs are kept on file with details including how their skin reacts to tanning and if they’re on any medication.

“We just have to adjust to their skin type, so they feel comfortable,” Manager Michelle Radulesk said.

The place offers other pampering as well, and there are some deals in honor of moms this month.

“We’re definitely a good salon to pick because we have tons of options,” Radulesk said.

Customers can pick up four free tans from today to Monday in celebration of Mother’s Day.

Other services include a detoxifying treatment called a fit wrap, and laser hair removal could be a service coming soon. There’s also a red light treatment, often called anti-aging therapy, which Radulesk said repairs skin from damage such as stretch marks and can ease acne and arthritis.

“You kind of have a glow when you come out,” Radulesk said.

Islands Tanning also offers a line of treatments called VersaSpa, which Radulesk said can bronze and hydrate skin. If people buy a package of these treatments, they will be entered into a raffle for two full-expense paid trips to Hawaii. Customers receive two raffle tickets for every $100 they spend on these. The raffle is a fundraiser for Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.

“Our owner, Jon Guyette, likes to give back to the community,” Radulesk said.
