Drawing on sleeping friends with permanent marker has been replaced as the most popular college prank by the more surprising act of giving an unconscious ally a spray tan on only their forearms. Even out an unwanted tone with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two Mystic spray tans (a $40 value) at Tan D Sol on University Blvd.
Tan D Sol's UV- and paraben-free Mystic spray tan spritzes an aloe vera and antioxidant-rich formula to transform pale skin cell sacks into beautifully bronzed body sheaths in about 60 seconds. Tan seekers embark on the pseudo-sun journey by pressing a button in the standing booth, which blasts skin suits in a head-to-toe automatic mist, though customers should avoid the pedal, which coats skin in an impossible-to-remove layer of glitter. Warm air envelops exposed skin to not only comfort, but also allow for optimum absorption. Mystic tan's fragrance-free formula is designed to help eliminate the odor normally associated with spray tanning that comes from the active ingredient, DHA, reacting and pores throwing out their garbage without tying off the bags. Varying shades allow for color customization, from a just-off-the-beach tint to a just-arrived-from-Mercury sizzle, which lasts for 5–10 days.
Tan D Sol's convenient location near the University of Arizona campus also boasts 14 all vertical booths in four varieties and an array of products, including lotions, body wash, sunless tanners, and moon-block to protect the skin of evening outdoorsmen.
