Housed in a charming art-deco abode, Salon St. Jacques is a welcoming, relaxing spa specializing in state-of-the-art skin and body care. Petra Nicoll, an experienced guru of organic treatments, helms skin services for a natural and holistic flesh refurbishment. Revamp weather-beaten faces with an express 30-minute minifacial tailored to individual skin types ($45). After Petra bastes the frontal visage with both a cleanser and toner, she gifts grippers with a sea-spa hand massage. Mineral-rich foundational makeup acts as a coda to this whirlwind facial tour-de-force. The specialized foot bath will soak away stress while simultaneously sucking toxic substances out of the body ($55). Water gradually turns murky brown during the treatment, shamefully reminding clients of their mothers sagely advice to clean behind their epidermal system before bed. As cells are shocked into detoxification mode with the bath's low-voltage currents, myriad healthful benefits can emerge, including a heightened immune system, decreased blood pressure, and a faster metabolism.
