Other than sporting a constant tan, the best way to trick yourself into thinking it's perpetually summertime is tattooing sunglasses on everyone's faces. Make summer eternal the easy way with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a custom airbrush tan at Illusions Skin Studio in Encinitas (a $45 value).
Illusions Skin Studio's Kathy Lowery coats sun-starved skin with bronzed, natural-looking tones. Kathy first consults with her customers to determine their desired skin shade and natural skin tone. Based on compatibility, Kathy then selects the appropriate color of organic SunFX tanner to merge her client's skin tone with the ideal hue during an airbrush session that lasts up to 10 minutes. The formula boasts an absolute dearth of alcohol, perfume, and preservatives, eliminating unsettling smells of polysyllabic ingredients or unwashed sunbeams. Sunny-toned skin radiates natural-looking golden hues free of orange tints or telltale streaks. Tans last for up to five to seven days.
