Maintaining even skin tone year-round is crucial to being recognized by pets, door-to-door salesmen, and police officers inspecting your license. Avoid a case of mistaken identity with today's Groupon: for $10, you get an escape, premier, or elite tanning-bed session or a spray-tan session at one of Tan World Des Moines's locations in West Des Moines, Urbandale, Clive, or Ankeny (up to a $30 value).
Tan World Des Moines offers a range of bronzing options designed to get customers' glows noticed year-round. Defy winter's dullness with treatments designed to deliver natural-looking even tans. Customers preparing to dog-sit sun spots or soothe solar flares can opt for the 15-minute escape tanning session, sure to build a base solid enough for prolonged contact with the sun's beams. The premiere tanning session offers a 12-minute soak in the artificial rays, and the elite bed gets busy sun-seekers in and out in 12–16 minutes. For fans of waterfall mist, humidifiers, and the light kiss of hairspray, a one-minute spray tan creates a beautiful glow for any body.
Sun Tan City
Back in 1999, brothers David and Rick Kueber noticed a lag in business at their chain of video-rental shops during the summer months, when no one wanted to be cooped up inside watching movies. The two put their heads together and found a rather unconventional solution to their problem: tanning beds. They installed a new fleet of skin-bronzing machines and sat back as so many clients flocked to their shop that the brothers were forced to open an entire store just to cater to their clients’ tanning demands. This was the birth of Sun Tan City. Today, what started as an experimental side business boasts more than 200 locations across 16 states.
The staff at each location maintains a meticulously clean space, where they show clients to UV beds dubbed fast, faster, fastest, and instant. The beds include features such as facial tanners and self-contained air conditioners. Alternatively, clients can opt for the UV-free, automated VersaSpa system, which swathes physiques in a DHA, plant-based bronzing solution. The liquid reacts naturally with skin’s amino acids, creating an even coat as radiant as the high beams on Helios’s chariot within 46 seconds.
