The sun's energy not only tans people's skin, but also gives flowers the strength they need to keep from screaming when they're plucked. Fortify your exterior with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two tanning sessions with a choice from four levels of tanning beds and sunless tanning at Sun Tan City, valid at six locations in Cary, Durham, Garner, and Raleigh (up to a $68 value).
Sun Tan City's tanning centers house an armada of bronzing vehicles designed to polish bodies, rain or shine. Tanners can burrow into the belly of any of four levels of tanning beds for 10- to 20-minute bronzing sessions. Fast-level beds slowly steep skin with a solid base tan, and Instant-level beds boldly bronze pelts with a larger ratio of UVA bulbs, coaxing melanin out with paparazzi-like attention and promises of leading roles. VersaSpa sunless, open-air booths airbrush epidermises with a water-soluble plant-based solution that goes on evenly, resists staining clothes, and, unlike rolling around in a puddle of fudge, darkens skin without leaving a sticky residue.
