– Riviera Tan was the hottest place in town on a Saturday earlier this month, as it celebrated 12 years in business with free tans, give-a-ways and discounts on tanning packages, spray tanning and other products. With temperatures in the low 20s, people took advantage of an opportunity to enjoy some warm summer in the heart of a deep freeze.

“People were lined up at the door when we arrived for work,” said Gabrielle Guridys, of Sparta, who works at Riviera. “I guess they just couldn't wait to take advantage of a free tan and escape the cold for a while.”

Owner Deb Singh said, “We do this once a year to celebrate our anniversary and our great customers as well as let those who don't know we're here about what we offer. It's been a steady flow of people all day looking to get warm and a little tan.”

In addition to three levels of tanning beds, including a stand up, and the increasingly-popular Norvell Airbrush spray tanning, one thing most probably don't know that Riviera has is their new Cocoon Wellness Pro Pod.

“It's great to help people relax in a world where there's lots of stress and it's great for your body and a chance to catch a 'power nap,'” Singh said.

The Cocoon Wellness Pro Pod features six preset programs of natural technologies made with combinations of sophisticated components including dry heat, vibration massage, aromatherapy, salt treatment and jade stones. The The Wellness Pro Pod's three levels of near, mid and far infrared lighting work to deliver a dry heat treatment that can be set from ambient to 180-degrees Fahrenheit. The infrared lighting treatment is like stepping into a dry sauna. It's purported to help circulation, alleviate stiff joints and muscles and help you relax. In addition, it delivers a full body massage to loosen tight muscles and reduce rheumatic pain. Additionally, it has essential oils which soothe the body and mind.

“It's just a great way for people to come in and relax for half an hour and catch a cat nap if they want,” Singh said. “We're really excited to now have this amazing Cocoon to offer to our customers.”

Indoor tanning has been shown to provide Vitamin D, something that many become deficient in during the winter months. It has also been shown to help alleviate the winter blues by taking customers away to a warm place for a few minutes. By March, most people have had it with "Old Man Winter" and Riviera offers a place where you can escape to summer for a while. They offer a myriad of tanning and spray tanning packages plus some great smelling, super working tanning lotions and products.

Riviera Tan is located at 2-10 East Clinton Street in Newton. Call 973-383-0063 or visit their Facebook page for more information and to schedule an appointment. Walk-ins for tanning are always welcome, but for spray tanning and the Cocoon, it is advised to book ahead.
