Spray tanning is a great way to prepare yourself for a date if the sun is blocked by the moon or destroyed by an off-course space shuttle loaded with fireworks. Prepare for disaster with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a single mobile spray-tanning session from Spray Soleil Mobile Mist Tanning in Greensboro (a $40 value). For locations more than 20 miles from downtown Greensboro, Spray Soleil charges $10 per additional 10 miles.
Spray Soleil's experienced tan-toting technician Dani Catechis brings bark-darkening expertise into the homes of pasty patrons. Wielding a hand-held machine, the sunless smith will set up a three-sided pop-up tent for a mess-free application and a place to sleep later. The tech will then proceed to coat skin in a sugar-based dihydroxy-acetone solution that can cover stretch marks, scars, and varicose veins for 7 to 10 days. The entire process can last 20–30 minutes, including setup and breakdown, which is enough time to recite an episode of Friends. See Spray Soleil's FAQ section for pre- and post-tan instructions.
