Prior to tanning salons, the only way to achieve a beautiful copper glow was to boil pennies and bathe in the scalding reduction. Achieve a less-painful sheen with today's Groupon: for $44, you get a one-month Premium Glow unlimited-tanning package (an $89 value) or three Mystic Tan sunless-tanning sessions (an $87 value) at Native Sun Tanning & Spa in Midlothian.
Native Sun Tanning & Spa’s full-service bronzery is stocked with high-quality equipment and products and staffed by friendly, knowledgeable professionals who show clients how to shine without the sun’s help. Spend a month getting golden in the spa's level-five UV beds, or let a trained technician dust a dull dermis with a customizable spray. The Mystic tanning booth coats tanners with a quick-drying solution that causes a streak-free glow to affix itself to your skin in less than 60 seconds. Clients can customize the formula according to skin tone, creating their desired shade with a choice of six color levels; to achieve the best bronze-dipped results, customers should arrive with large bags of stolen sunshine and clean, freshly-exfoliated skin. After Mystic’s work is done, your faux tan will last seven to 10 days with the proper care and, like a crush on a chocolate bar, will fade away naturally.
Native Sun Tanning & Spa
The friendly team at Native Sun Tanning & Spa are Smart Tan–certified, but they're more than just tanning technicians; each staff member helps clients select an array of skin-nourishing spa services. Skin specialists recommend a session in the infrared heat and nutrient-infused steam of the Hydro-Derma Fusion machine, as it can extend tanning results and leave skin more moisturized than Gene Kelly's umbrella made of sponges. Both high-pressure and stand-up UV beds are featured in the salon, as well as fast-acting Mystic booths. To help shed stress, guests can sink into the relaxing jets of the AquaMassage pod to revitalize muscles and enhance circulation better than a hug from a manatee. The spa's purple, yellow, and orange reception area has shelves lined with neat rows of moisturizing products.
