Regular facials often lead to a glowing complexion, compliments from total strangers, and the ability to purchase Happy Meals without a fake ID. Retaste the cuisine of childhood with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a 60-minute essential facial, along with either a glycolic peel or an eyebrow and lip wax, at Affordable Facials and More, located inside Ancient Art Massage & Spa in Altamonte Springs (an $87 value).
Affordable Facials and More—helmed by licensed aesthetician Jen— soothes visages with organic, deep-cleansing treatments. Clients are invited to relax in Ancient Art Massage & Spa's welcoming environs, which host a lounge that offers natural teas and snacks and an organic apothecary garden filled with homegrown herbs. The 60-minute essential facial blends custom, plant-based elixirs to suit your skin's specific needs and least favorite childhood vegetable (a $65 value). Cleansers, exfoliants, and masks unplug and gently degunk pores before finishing with hydration-sealing moisturizer. The essential facial culminates with a complimentary reflexology treatment on hands, arms, and face that helps increase lymphatic supply and builds resistance in tickle pressure points.
Much like how peeling an orange slowly unveils an irresistible citrus core, an exfoliating glycolic peel sloughs off dead skin to reveal the smoother, comelier, and more lickable countenance that lies beneath (a $22 value). Or opt for the eyebrow and lip wax, which enacts a porcelain-smooth, aerodynamic face for convertible road trips (a $22 value).
With warm sunlight pouring inside, high ceilings with exposed wood beams, and pretty tiled sink, Affordable Facials and More’s facial room feels more like a bathroom in a cozy home. This relaxing environment is where aestheticians perform glycolic peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and custom facials that treat everything from fine lines to acne.
