Studies show that modulating one's facial expression instantly builds camaraderie, whether by laughing at a joke, frowning at a sad story, or making empathetic fish lips at an unemployed merman. Prep your kisser for many roles with today's Groupon: for $85, you get an Exceptional Custom Facial from Kayle Estrada at Salon Gianna (a $185 value).

Kayle Estrada, Salon Gianna's skin expert, begins each Exceptional Custom Facial by mapping out a treatment plan to soothe the effects of aging, acne, rosacea, sun damage, and other surface conditions. After the skin analysis, Éminence-brand organic skincare products aid a deep-cleanse, exfoliation, mini microdermabrasion, and extractions if needed. Next, the upper body relaxes under a soothing massage as a mask, serum, and eye treatment tighten and reenergize facial tissues, much like smiling through a coffee storm.

Depending on the client’s needs, more extensive microdermabrasion and microcurrent technologies may be incorporated into the 60- to 75-minute treatment. Moisturizer and a vanilla-scented SPF 32 sunscreen prepare faces to face harsher environments outside, from the intense sunshine of tropical vacations to the chilly ice-cream-truck interior of the work week. The husband-wife team behind Salon Gianna founded the high-ceilinged spa space to fund research into rare childhood diseases after their daughter—the salon's namesake—was diagnosed with a congenital cell-growth disorder.

Kayle at Salon Gianna

The husband-wife team behind Salon Gianna founded the high-ceilinged spa space to fund research for rare childhood diseases after their daughter—the salon's namesake—was diagnosed with a congenital cell-growth disorder. The salon's aestheticians pamper guests with a range of services and use the proceeds to support work at the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute. Éminence organic facials nourish skin with ingredients both potent and natural, such as the clear-skin facial's probiotic yogurt mask or the paprika and fruit-acid exfoliant of the anti-aging facial.

Invigorating scrubs and body wraps extend skincare to the entire physique, reenergizing skin as much as jogging through a coffee storm. Massage therapists lull tense muscles into a relaxed state with deep-tissue and Swedish techniques, and nail technicians dress up hands and feet with chic Rockstar toes or long-lasting shellac polish. Stylists can customize tresses with new hues and cuts or remove unwanted strands during waxing sessions.
