Though many seek the timeless appeal of glowing, bronzed skin, few are willing to melt their sixth-grade soccer trophies into topical body paint. Coat yourself in melanin instead of metal with today's Groupon: for $45, you get three three-step spray-tan sessions at X-Treme Tanning in Clinton (a $105 value).
X-Treme Tanning helps patrons reach their ideal coppery hues with UV and UV-free tanning options. Three VersaSpa sessions help bronzers absorb and maintain their desired tans without the harmful side effects of cramming the sun into a jam jar and rolling it against the skin. Once the client has chosen from a light, medium, or dark application, he or she can follow the simple, voice-automated instructions to receive an even coating.
Each session begins with a primer to balance the skin’s pH and prepare it for the pigmentation procedure, followed by the bronzing treatment. Meanwhile, a moisturizer is applied to keep thirsty skin from tugging its owner endlessly toward glasses of water and kiddie pools. Finally, the solutions are then blown dry to prevent the tan and customers from streaking.
Don't be fooled by the name—X-Treme Styles is a destination for more than just a good bronzing. At the full-service salon and spa for hair, nails, and even slimming body wraps, the multifaceted staff tends to clients with a variety of services. Of course, there's tanning, too—both UV and UV-free—and visitors may choose from a variety of beds, just like Goldilocks.
