Free Spray Tans Offered at Gatwick Airport

Glowin' at the Gate: Gatwick Offers Free Self-Tanning

Growing up, one thing I always looked forward to when going to the airport was a visit to Cinnabon. (Doesn't take much, does it?) I did not, however, have visions of spray tanning at the terminal circling through my mind. But now, the people at St. Tropez have just made that crazy notion possible.

Until Sunday, travelers at the Gatwick Airport in London can get a free preflight spray tan. Dubbed the Gatwick Glow, the service is a result of research done by the airport which concluded that having an existing tan preholiday gives vacationers more confidence. "Gatwick Glow is designed to give our passengers a boost. We want them to head off on their holiday feeling great about themselves," the Gatwick Airport's Kim Francis told the Daily Mail. Perhaps the thought of a gooey cinnamon bun already gives you that warm glow, but would you consider getting your warm glow on by spray-tanning at the gate?

I would be all for it! As long as it's kept clean and I have time to dry before sitting on the plane.

It would depend on the standards. If it was really dirty, no, but if it was obvious that the people were cleaning it well, maybe. I probably wouldn't do it, though. I'd be more inclined to get a tan at my salon before I left. Airports are just kind of mucky overall.
