The sun is a terrible roommate—drinking orange juice from the carton, letting Pluto crash on the couch for centuries, hitting on all your friends with overbearing UV rays. Today’s Groupon lets you get away from that jerk for a little while: for $30, you get two custom spray tans (a $60 value) from Body & Sol TANspa in St. Louis Park, just west of Minneapolis.
Body & Sol uses the Tan Envy airbrush tan, Chicago magazine's pick for best new airbrush tanning product, which bathes the skin in bronze without leaving a carrot-esque color or the usual off-putting sour odor of angel tears and bad breakups. Body & Sol's expert tanner techs apply the spray tan with a steady hand and a smile. This custom application ensures that customers don’t leave the premises looking like calico cats of coruscation. Looking good is only 56% of the battle, though; Tan Envy's organic solution of ginseng, anti-aging botanicals, and antioxidants also leaves the skin feeling top-notch.
With its friendly staff and clean facilities, Body & Sol and its custom spray tans are perfect for those seeking to add a splash of radiant color—be it bronze, off-bronze, or midnight bronze—to the staticky television signal that is winter in the Midwest. Tanning at Body & Sol is by appointment only, so call ahead.

Body & Sol Tan Spa
Body & Sol Tan Spa wields the power of indoor sunshine with three types of UV tanning apparatuses. The standup Sundome booths and Ovation beds with UVB-free facial tanners bronze skin for a fresh-off-the-beach appearance, minus the messy sand and arm-floatie tan lines. Alternatively, the salon's airbrush technicians emulate the sun's skin-darkening effects with UV-free spray tans that can create a weeklong bronze in mere seconds with a tinted mélange of ginseng, rosemary, and aloe vera. Aside from tanning services, the staff facilitates head-to-toe relaxation with therapeutic massages, full-body scrubs, deep-tissue, myofascial release, and sports massages.
