Early explorers sought elusive riches previously thought unattainable, such as gold, spices, and the 10-minute tan. Chart a course for quicker coloration with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get $35 worth of tanning, spray tanning, and products at Sunset Tans in Douglassville. Appointments are required for spray-tanning sessions.
Sunset Tans provides body bronzers with an oasis of pigment-enhancing options. Feel free to kick back and recount your favorite credit-card numbers in the tanning beds from Sunvision and Sunstar with the 30-day unlimited tanning package ($35), or perfect flamingo poses in the Hex II and Sundome stand-up booths ($7 for single session), each equipped with the best bulbs recommended to help tanners reach their tonal potential. Ray-resistant tanners, meanwhile, can find an alternate colored coat thanks to the Norvell-system airbrush tanning ($25), professionally applied for a streak-free, spot-free epidermal renewal. Skin owners can protect their copper pelt from defecting to the U.S. Mint thanks to a variety of products from brands such as Supre Tan, Australian Gold, and ProTan.
Unlike many other salons, Sunset Tans does not charge for upgrades, membership, or require its customers to sign noncompete contracts that prohibit them from sunning themselves at beaches or in their own backyards. The accommodating staff gives tan fans reasons to cheer by offering monthly raffles, free moisturizers, birthday gifts, and custom-made CDs.
