To attain the rosy glow of flushed cheeks, 18th-century ladies often took snowballs to the face, nuzzled fire-ant hills, and bench pressed child princes. Give your complexion a painless glow with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get a Beeautiful Cleanse facial (an $85 value) at The Bee Hive, located inside Posh Salon on Lincoln Street.
The warm, honey-colored spa room and founder Brenda Denesowicz's delicate touch lend an air of tranquility to this beauty-based honeycomb. During The Bee Hive's 45-minute Beeautiful Cleanse, an aesthetic architect renovates careworn façades from the foundation up with a deep-pore purification. Extractions ensure dirty and oily invaders are summarily expelled from facial boundaries, and a custom masque lavishes love on skin without resorting to reciting it poetry or painting it into a watercolor portrait. Finally, a massage gently eases strain from muscles, turning knotted human stress dough into smoothly kneaded relaxation loaves. Reservations are required for facial services, but there's no need to stuff a thinning billfold before you go; the practice of tipping is not accepted at The Bee Hive.
