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 $20, you get $40 worth of bed tanning or red-light rejuvenation therapy at Tans Down Under in Niles, MI.
Tans Down Under houses more than a dozen tanning apparatuses, including tanning beds and standup booths, which infuse skin with a copper-flecked glow. Channel light's chromatic clout with a 100-minute timecard ($30), a five-session punch card ($25), or a full month of unlimited tanning ($60), inciting jealously in paler pals and pennies born after 1857. Though not included in this deal, Tans Down Under offers light-attracting lotions from brands such as California Tan and Australian Gold, which lasso wandering beams to the skin's surface, yielding a deep, golden sheen.
The value of the Groupon can also be applied toward red-light rejuvenation therapy, which wields a 633-nanometer red light to improve the appearance of skin tone and texture. Like an ill-fitting pair of trousers, the beams penetrate skin to a depth of 8–10 millimeters and can enhance collagen production during 5–10 booth sessions ($30–$50). The skin-friendly process emits no UVA or UVB rays and shows best results after 8–12 weeks of treatments.
