A neglected face will rebel by scowling during your wedding vows or sprouting a five o'clock shadow at precisely four. Soothe volatile visages with today's Groupon: for $62, you get a choice of a 60-minute Age Smart facial (a $125 value) or a lipo-fitness body wrap (a $131 value) at Farashé The Day Spa in Columbia.
Farashé The Day Spa’s fully trained and licensed staff performs relaxing facial and body treatments in an exotic spa, inspired by the feng shui principles of water, fire, metal, wood, and earth. Following a thorough cleaning and skin analysis, an aesthetician customizes the anti-aging facial with Dermalogica Age Smart products and vitamin-infused serums, which target fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and age-betraying birth-certificate tattoos. Extractions clear out pores, and a multivitamin exfoliation removes surface-dulling skin and helps to enhance product penetration. Daubs of a custom mask and an installation of irrigation pipes restore moisture to dry, sun-damaged, or prematurely aging skin. Alternately, during the lipo-fitness body wrap, nimble hands polish the entire body with an organic brown-sugar rub, which aims to moisturize bodies and boost skin's firmness and elasticity. All body treatments include a session beneath the gently flowing spray of a vichy shower.
Farashé the Day Spa
The owners of Farashé the Day Spa designed it with the feng shui elements of water, fire, metal, wood, and earth in mind. It makes for a fitting setting, since the treatments that take place there, like feng shui, draw from ancient Eastern healing philosophies. These Ayurvedic treatments range from scalp massages that stimulate the senses to applications of warm oils that separate clients from the lampposts to which they’ve frozen their foreheads. Aestheticians also perform Western spa treatments including facials with Dermalogica or GM Collin products. During body treatments, therapists draw from natural ingredients, such as mineral salts and sea mud, which clients then wash off with a massaging Vichy shower. Treatments take place amid the arched doorways and draped gold silk curtains that mark the spa’s Indian- and Moroccan-influenced decor.
