Studies show that modulating one's facial expression instantly builds camaraderie, whether by laughing at a joke, frowning at a sad story, or making empathetic fish lips at an unemployed merman. Prep your kisser for many roles with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a one-hour custom facial plus a brow shaping at Faces of Marin in San Rafael (a $120 value).
Faces of Marin's knowledgeable aestheticians soothe and refresh faces based on their particular needs and temperaments. Each one-hour customized treatment begins with an ultrasonic cleansing and extraction, freeing faces from pent-up gunk and temporary tattoos of mutton chops. Next, deft hands lightly exfoliate skin and apply a specialized treatment serum for further smoothing. A customized mask treats skin's specific concerns and anxieties before a posttreatment moisturizer locks in hydration. Clients also benefit from a brow shaping as aestheticians defuzz faces to better accentuate freshly aglow visages and fend off the advances of lovesick caterpillars.
