Nature's tanning booth is plagued with hazards such as pinching crabs, errantly raining volleyballs, and lusty gulls reading your steamy novels over your shoulder. Transcend outdoor annoyances for a sunnier disposition with today's Groupon: for $40, you get one airbrush tan and one month of unlimited tanning in your choice of a UV bed and unlimited Hydration Station sessions at Tan Makers in Humble (up to a $238 value).
Tan Makers transforms sun-shy epidermises into a beach-ready bronze with a suite of tanning options. Experienced technicians apply the UV-free Norvell custom airbrush tan, which lends natural, even color to lusterless skin for about seven days. Four levels of UV tanning offer a range of bronzing intensities, beginning at the level-one Ultra Sun bed, which bestows skin with subtle color. The level-four Velocity bed amps up solar wattage with four high-pressure bulbs that darken skin to a radiant brown, imparting unstoppable hide-and-seek success in bronze-statue museums. Complete epidermal renovations in the Hydration Station, a special skincare capsule that blankets the body in radiant heat and steam to moisturize and detox its superficial layers. Time in the capsule can soften skin, deepen tans, and infuse moisture deep into cellular layers, leaving bodies as radiant as a phosphorescent shrimp on its wedding day.
Though Tan Makers sometimes offers discounted tanning packages, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.
