Though popular in Victorian times, porcelain skin fell out of fashion when bathing in UV-light proved far more comfortable than being slathered in clay and heated inside a kiln. Avoid 2,552-degree temperatures with today's Groupon: for $35, you get five Sun Angel tanning sessions at Asian Sun Tanning Studio (an $80 value).
Asian Sun Tanning Studio beach-seasons the skin of winter-weary Akronites with a variety of stand-up and lie-down tanning equipment, including a system that blends UVA and UVB light to create a personalized tanning threshold that helps to prevent sunburn. The Sun Angel bed's smart sensors calculate a UV spectrum based on how much exposure your body can safely absorb on that particular day before it bursts into a cloud of confetti, and the exposure is never more powerful than natural sunlight. Celestial choirs of humming body lamps revive ghostly pallors to radiant sepia tones while four facial tanners protect countenances from demonic redness. Throughout each session, you'll sink into the combined headrest, armrests, and variable footrests of the Multi Relax base acrylic and bask in temperature-controlled air-conditioning. Aqua Fresh Aroma spritzers treat the nose to a carefree beach party all its own, while the Sun Angel's 3D sound-system tickles eardrums with the choicest tunes.
