Putting your best face forward sometimes requires making your second-best face disappear in an unfortunate "accident." Today's Groupon creates the perfect alibi: for $50, you get a deluxe facial that includes a massage and a deluxe manicure and pedicure at Bella Nails Spa in Sugar Land (up to a $97 total value).
Bella Nails Spa pampers stress-prone spots with a slew of deluxe services bolstered by upscale, professional- grade products and friendly beautifying experts. Targeting acne, fine lines, dark circles, and faded bumper stickers, the approximately 45-minute deluxe facial begins as the aesthetician deep-cleans pores using a combination of extraction and mask treatments. Once liberated from dirt, grime, and blackheads, faces are treated to a splash of Dermalogica Pro cleanser that helps rev up collagen production and balance the skin's natural oils, making it less prone to breakouts or slipping off its pillow. To help bolster relaxation, each facial pairs with an invigorating hot-stone and pressure-point massage, adapted from salon staffer Lisa's extensive training in Hong Kong. Focusing on high-stress spots such as the neck, shoulders, hands, and feet, the tension-reducing knead-a-thon is an ideal way to shoo-away pressure from an overworked head pedestal, and it leaves extremities feeling as relaxed as a rooster dining in a vegan restaurant.
Nail mavens mollycoddle fingertips and toe-rims during the deluxe manicure and pedicure, first trimming, filing, and removing excess cuticles. A combination of sea salt, hot rocks, and massage then smothers glove holders with a cloak of tranquility, and a top layer of lacquer tucks rich colors inside the beautified nail beds. Toes undergo a similarly relaxing sequence boosted by whirlpool massage chairs, perfectly sized for feet or sandal-wearing cantaloupes, and a hot-towel wrap to leave feet smooth as silk.
