Small doses of premium natural extracts can greatly brighten the face, just as a single squirt of dijon mustard can add jaw-dropping vibrancy to a wedding dress. Add some style to the skin with today’s Groupon to Sara Elizabeth Skin Care. Choose between the following options:
- For $39, you get a mini hibiscus-flower-petal peel (a $85 value).
- For $65, you get an anti-aging kombucha firming facial (a $135 value).
Founder Sara Elizabeth Kuite has traveled the country to study specialized skincare and Japanese massage techniques with field experts, and her current practice in San Diego places an emphasis on deep healing and prevention of unnecessary epidermal wear. The mini hibiscus flower petal peel utilizes natural botanical extracts to revitalize exterior sheathing while bolstering friendships between clients and bees. Organic acids dissolve oils and strip down damaged outer coats to reveal the youthful, hydrated, evenly pigmented skin beneath. This treatment isn't ideal for very sensitive skin.
For a multitiered approach to epidermal renewal, the kombucha firming facial melds black tea, Chilean tree bark, and grain extracts into a triumvirate of cranial coddling. Antioxidant-rich kombucha tea purges the pores of harmful free radicals as sorghum extracts infuse the flesh with polysaccharide peptides—shown to tighten sagging skin and completely flatten bulldogs. The final ingredient of this youth potion, diacetyl boldine, derives from bark and inhibits hyperpigmentation, leaving smile-docks brighter and capable of sending Morse-code signals to the International Space Station through simple games of peek-a-boo.
Sara Elizabeth Skincare & Nail Boutique
Sara Elizabeth Skincare & Nail Boutique founder Sara Elizabeth Kuite has traveled the country to build her acute knowledge of bodily betterments, studying specialized skincare in New York City with celebrity facialist Ling Chan and scaling the Rocky Mountains to learn Japanese kobido massage techniques under sensei master Shogo Mochizuki. Today, she fuses Eastern ideas with Western technology in her current practice, which places an emphasis on deep healing and prevention of unnecessary epidermal wear. Her highly trained eyes carefully scan skin to spot specific conditions and create a personalized skincare regimen for each individual, and she gives each patient the time and attention they need to learn how to use products correctly and finally set the clocks on their VCRs.
Celery green walls and white overstuffed chairs provide a tranquil setting for all services, which include everything from anti-aging, hydrating, or exfoliating facials to hair removal with sugar paste or blue chamomile wax. Clients awaiting treatment may soothe sore eyes by browsing through a boutique stocked with raw vegan skincare products from brands such as Astara and Priori and high-powered CoffeeBerry antioxidant, or wander over to the elixir bar to nourish bodies and wilted houseplants with phytonutrient-rich beverages.
Maybe the best facial I've ever had. Very intimate, cozy, relaxed setting. You always feel like you're getting individualized attention.Lisa B., Yelp, 5/14/10
