Like ripened fruits, people with healthy-colored skin tend to spend less time hanging from trees and are more likely to get picked up at the grocery store. Catch the eye of passersby and orangutans with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of UV tanning or Mystic tanning at Hollywood Tans in Lynbrook.
Hollywood Tans, the nation’s largest chain of tanning salons, turns dermises gold with a special alchemic process known as Tanetics. Skin specialists consider each customer’s tanning goal, skin tone, and skin sensitivity before helping them choose the perfect skin-shading procedure. Four clean and comfortable UV tanning-booth options filter out most pestiferous UVB rays while speedily darkening pigment; five 11-minute bouts ($39) inside Hollywood Tans’ HT42 booth is enough to leave any pelt polished with a glossy base tan. For Daphnes fleeing Apollo, a Mystic spray tan booth ($50 for two applications) depales pasty parchment with a misty coat of bronze that lasts 5–7 days. The Mystic’s cartridges can be changed to allow users great flexibility in choosing their preferred skin patinas.
Appointments are not required at Hollywood Tans, so prospective tan toners can walk in at a whim, annex a booth, and enjoy the satisfaction of doing their part to put the sun out of business. While clients are bronzing inside the cozy booths, their vehicles soak in paint-enhancing rainbow beams in Hollywood Tans’ free underground parking garage.
Customers must complete the first tanning session at the Lynwood location. Future visits can be at any location nationwide, though a $3 surcharge may apply.
