Without the sun, enterprising Morlocks would emerge from underground caves, forcing guileless humans to buy overpriced parkas to cover fading tans. Use today's deal to show solidarity with a bronzened humanity: for $20, you get a full-body airbrush tanning session at Fit to Be Tan in Arlington, Virginia, a $45 value.
Sunless tanning gives you a lustrous, fresh-off-the-beach glow without exposing your skin to beach bullies or the powerful rays of our binary suns. The trained technicians at Fit to Be Tan customize their organic, dye-free formula to each person’s skin tone, and the natural ingredients synthesize a reaction similar to a day in the sun. Although your tan will last on average seven to 10 days, you can prolong your color by moisturizing daily with popular emollients such as lotion, or lotion-infused bacon.
Change your stripes as if you were a futuristic chameleon, amazing friends and enemies alike with your dramatic transformation. Show the prom date who stood you up for pasty Cheri what a mistake he made all those years ago when you unveil your newly effulgent complexion. Get rid of tan lines, or add a few unusual ones of your own design with the help of the expert airbrushers at Fit to Be Tan; their personalized service and hand application will ensure that you get the exact tan you want, unless you want a purple tan.

Friends come in handy when one needs a shoulder to cry on or a body to experiment on. Luckily, Fit to Be Tan owner Heather Boss has many. After researching non-UV-based tanning methods in 2007, she began experimenting with airbrush tanning, perfecting the combination of solution and technique after many trials on her willing friends. After word spread from her happy test subjects, Boss opened Fit to Be Tan, which focuses on airbrush tanning and healthy skincare. She uses all natural solutions that bronze the skin without relying on harmful rays from the sun.
