Like ripened fruits, people with healthy-colored skin tend to spend less time loitering in orchards and are more likely to get picked up at the grocery store. Catch the eye of passing orangutans with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of glow-bestowing services at Sunbathe Tanning Retreat and Spa in King William.
Sunbathe's sugar-based tanning spray ($35 per application) bestows a bronzey sun kiss without the usual neon-orange streaks. Designed to soothe skin as much as gild it, the blend is free of harsh chemicals and includes wild botanical extracts, herbs, and artisanal antioxidants crafted by hand in the French Alps. If you prefer skin as pale as a salt kernel, opt for other beauty-bolstering spa services, such as an express manicure ($25), pedicure ($35), facial ($35+), or eyebrow threading ($18). Sunbathe also offers sugaring ($40 for a bikini), and massage therapy with a licensed therapist ($65 an hour).
Sunbathe's Bali-chic, tropically decorated salon is heavy with the scent of island fruits. The friendly staff encourages beauty-seekers to relax and slow their lives' hectic paces until they grind to a halt and sit still long enough to sprout flowers within the luxurious walls. You'll even receive a complimentary drink.
