Although outdoor tanning allows humans to absorb the sun's natural energy, the sapped star will eventually turn pale and suffer the fate of Earth's original sun, the moon. Save the sun with today's Groupon to Solar Planet. This Groupon is valid at locations in Cleveland Park; Georgetown; Tenleytown; Arlington, Virginia; and a new location in Rockville/Kensington, Maryland. Choose from the following options:
- For $25, you get one full-body custom airbrush tan with pre-tan prep spray (a $55 value).

Brandishing pressurized, fine-point airbrush guns, Solar Planet’s suntan slingers imbue pallid complexions with golden midsummer tones in 15 sun-free minutes. After consulting with the client, one of the salon’s friendly tanning techs formulates a custom hue to meld with their skin tone, avoiding unnatural orange tints that leave bodies looking like ambulatory traffic cones. After a pH-balancing pre-tan spray primes protoplasms, techs spray on a DHA compound that infiltrates skin’s amino acids and, like a deadbeat sibling, deftly insinuates itself into a residence in the top layer of the epidermis. The sun-impersonating solution imparts a golden-brown tan that fades slowly, along with a salubrious cocktail of vitamins and antioxidants.
Solar Planet’s skin specialists recommend that patrons thoroughly exfoliate the night before the tanning session and shave no fewer than eight hours before the procedure. Patrons should also eschew baths in perfume, makeup, or industrial tar before their arrival.
The staffers at Solar Planet do more than lavish visitors with meticulously clean salons, indulgent extras, and the power to don a sun-kissed glow in less than 20 minutes. Each employee is Smart Tan certified, meaning they possess the training to design personalized tanning schedules for clients seeking an instant or lasting glow. The specialists also know every detail of Solar Planet’s fleet of tanning beds, which range from traditional beds to standup capsules, the style most conducive to tanning lawn flamingos. At some locations, custom airbrush tanning sessions enlist the help of a certified airbrush artist who highlights the body’s features with strategic strokes in a custom bronzing hue. Over its 25 years in business, Solar Planet also has sunless tanning booths, a stock of buyable bronzing lotions, and a variety of skincare services including facials and waxing.
