After studying the effects of encasing the 10th scientist's head in a plastic cube, 9 out of 10 agree that a healthy human face needs oxygen. Maintain a majestic visage and a robust behind-the-skin scene with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a Foot Based Facial—a facial with a mini pedicure—at Effervescent Spa (a $65 value).
Effervescent Spa's licensed aesthetician, Tara Hinson, helps stressed souls find solace with a panoply of pelt- and paw-pampering treatments. The one-hour basic facial, performed with Bioelements and Clinical Care Skin Solutions products, cleanses and exfoliates the skin, leaving it soft, glowing, and free of postnap pebbles. Tara begins the treatment with a foot soak, before cleaning the client's facial canvas and priming it with a calming mask. She then massages feet and performs basic nail work while the visage varnish dries. After masks are removed, countenances are rewarded with a facial massage, an exfoliation treatment, and a second mask, while extremities are exorcized with a sugar scrub, warm towels, and a foot mask. Finally, head whisperer Tara coats clocks in moisturizer and massages scalps to relax nerves and release trapped thoughts.
Aesthetician Tara Hinson doesn’t just coddle soles with hot towels and a foot mask during pedicures—she invites her clients to lie down on a bed and enjoy a hot face towel as she tends to their toenails, a twist that inspired her to name this relaxing treatment the Lazy Pedi. Tara’s array of facials reflects her certification as a skincare professional, incorporating lactic acid, exfoliation, and extractions to rejuvenate skin and battle blemishes. Her dermal expertise also comes into play as she waxes away unwanted mustaches and the hair that collects on legs during one’s daily wading through kittens.
