Humankind has been playing with fire for years; now we can harness the bronzing essence of the sun in a gentle mist, proving once and for all our dominance over the weak, inanimate solar system. Subvert the sun with today’s deal: for $45, you get three full-body airbrush-tanning sessions (a total value of $105) at Esthetiques Skin Spa.
Esthetiques is an upbeat and friendly beauty shop decked out in warm, vibrant colors that match the personality of the staff. With an airbrush tan, you can instantly transform your look, shocking friends and stunning enemies. Stand in a tent reminiscent of a sultan’s private changing room as an expert technician transforms skin into a palette of deep, glowing bronze. The all-natural tanning solution is made of antioxidants, botanicals, and walnut extract, so it's more pleasant than the sand-, oil-, and sweat-scented smooch the sun gives a beach bunny. Plus, Esthetiques stocks a variety of shades that can be customized to suit your skin tone.
The tan generally lasts 7–10 days, though the results can be prolonged with extensive exfoliation. Three applications at Esthetiques add up to a long stretch of improved bikini confidence, even pigment, and skin more supple than pillows stuffed with old wishes.
