The eponymous owner of Clarisa’s Golden Touch specializes in gilding body builders. She wields a professional spray-tanning wand during each treatment, carefully misting the skin to accentuate each patron’s body and skin tone. Whether patrons want full or partial color, Clarisa creates a comfortable environment with in-studio and on-the-go services. She provides thorough instructions for achieving competition color, suggesting that patrons depilate and exfoliate their entire body in advance of the application. By following these steps and also declining double-dog dares to streak through the car wash, patrons achieve tans that last up to ten days.
Skin Sanctuary offers a variety of one-hour facials aimed at combating pores polluted with dust, grime, and other micro-particulates. With this deal, Groupon users can choose one of those facials. Turn back the giant, flaming hands of time with an Arcel Med Anti-Aging Facial ($65), which stimulates cellular regeneration to leave skin looking more youthful, or exfoliate dead skin and smooth out fine lines with a glycolic-acid peel ($75). The Collection Caviar Facial ($65) uses caviar extract and pure seawater to strengthen the skin, whereas the Vitamin C Infusion Facial ($65) brings elasticity to the skeleton-sweater with its punch of vitamins C, E, and A. Men with faces can also take advantage of this offer—the Gentleman's Facial ($65) is specifically designed for male skin. All facials are tailored to clients' specific needs by Skin Sanctuary's licensed aesthetician, with a soothing massage of the décolleté, shoulders, neck, hands, and scalp also accompanying each treatment.
Cara Mia Skin Care Spa harnesses the firming power of vibrations to bestow skins with youthful resplendence. During the ultrasonic facial, a licensed skin technician commands an ultrasonic machine with a series of gentle whistles, letting moisturizing serums travel to deep, unmapped dermal layers to penetrate finely engrained lines. Clients can relax while the ebb and flow of ultrasonic vibrations works to exfoliate, hydrate, and tighten skin, removing impurities and dead-beat skin cells without extraction. Throughout the procedure, clients can remain calm with Cara Mia's soothing amenities, from peaceful music and a tranquil fountain to a complimentary cup of tea and tender kisses from woodland nymphs.
Sheer Bliss's skilled technicians begin each facial with a skin analysis and then brew a blend of earth-originating products customized to your specific skin type, be it metamorphic or extra-crispy. A thorough cleansing will open shuttered pores so that the stimulating exfoliation can steam-roll through and clear them of dirt, oil, caked makeup, caked cake, and families of raccoons. Sheer Bliss uses only organic Éminence skincare products from Hungary to ensure that cells are mollycoddled with nature's sweetest cocktail of nutrients. Finally, you'll receive a lymphatic massage of the face, neck, décolleté, hands, and arms to improve circulation.
Élan Salon encourages relaxation with its skin-rejuvenating treatments and upscale, tranquil atmosphere. Faces smattered with blemishes or remnants of pizza binges can enjoy a 50-minute deep-pore cleansing facial, during which licensed aesthetician Ludmilla refreshes visages by employing exfoliating natural fruit enzymes, antioxidants, and hydrating agents. Shed dead skin with a deep-cleansing scrub, unclog overflowing pores with a gentle, non-irritating extraction, and keep surfaces soft with a soothing coat of moisturizer. Throughout, soft music gently plays in the background, mitigating stress and quieting inner voices that won't stop quoting Brendan Fraser films.
Set up in Heart & Soul Wellness Studio, Natural Beauty's Sam Ulep strives to help her clients feel "beautiful no matter what." Open compacts of MAC and Urban Decay cosmetics fan out before her as she dips a contouring brush into a palate of 28 flesh-toned eye shadows and chooses one to accent her client's brow bone. Her nimble fingers paint eyelids in iridescent, sherbet-colored gradients so smooth they seem airbrushed on, but she can also blend refined looks subtle enough for day. That dexterity extends to the painstaking process of eyelash extensions, which she affixes one by one to give brides a more glamorous gaze, and also to facials, which she employs to clear complexions of imperfections and hardened cement.
