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 $15, you get one month of unlimited tanning or two UV-free Mystic Tan sessions at The Tan Company (up to a $48 value). The Tan Company was voted Best Tanning in St. Louis by CityVoters in 2010. This deal is good at 42 of The Tan Company's locations in Missouri and Illinois.
Since 1994, The Tan Company's certified tanning consultants have harnessed the body-bronzing power of the sun and relocated it to customers' skin through a variety of vectors. Turn up your tone gradually with one month of unlimited tanning (a $34.88 value) on level one tanning beds. The UV-averse and/or time-crunched, meanwhile, can step into a Mystic Tan booth to be evenly sprayed with a formulated mixture distilled from sunshine, beer-can condensation, beach volleyball sand, aloe vera, and other natural summertime ingredients. Unlike a prop-based comedy routine or renewing one's taxidermy license, the Mystic Tan process is over fast—noticeable color enhancement will occur within two to three hours. Many Tan Company locations offer custom airbrushing as well, in case the look you're going for is a Mystic Farmer Tan.
Though a gold-injected pallor makes it easier to trick coworkers into worshipping you as a sun god, The Tan Company advocates tanning in moderation, particularly if you're auditioning for a role in a Jane Austen movie. Protective eyewear is always recommended, and pregnant women will need to consult their doctor before tanning.
Tax is not included, and those under 18 years old must have a parent sign a consent form.

The Tan Company
Founder Todd Beckman opened the first Tan Company location, then called The St. Louis Tan Company, in 1994 with a pair of average-size sun retreats. After perfecting a superstore concept with multiple levels of tanning beds and an intrepid-reporter alter ego, Beckman's bronzing business now spans 53 locations in 8 states, including 39 locations in the St. Louis area. Todd ensures each salon keeps the same high standards that won the 2010 award for Best Tanning in St. Louis from CityVoter.
A knowledgeable staff maintains each bright, highly sanitized environment and stocks shelves with Australian Gold, Swedish Beauty, and Designer Skin tanning products. The Tan Company also fashions UV-free tans with Mystic Tan standup booths that evenly spritz bodies with a paraben-free DHA solution infused with aloe vera.
