Though pursued throughout history, the Fountain of Youth lost its appeal when explorers who hopped into its waters were immediately kicked out for adult swim. Turn back just enough time with today’s Groupon: for $119, you get a spa package at D’ames Day Spa, located in Imperial Beach (a $260 total value). The package includes:
- A 50-minute glycolic facial (a $120 value)
- A 50-minute peppermint body scrub (a $125 value)
- A 10- to 15-minute peppermint lip scrub (a $15 value)<p>
Inside a 1,000-square-foot beachfront studio, D’ames Day Spa’s skilled aestheticians soothe clients with hot towels and warm, scented lotions during all beautifying services. The 50-minute glycolic facial harnesses the power of Epicuren Discovery skincare products to oust dead skin cells and hydrate living skin cells to help grow them into hydrangeas. Oil and glycolic acid blend their antioxidant properties to diminish age spots, outfitting façades with an appearance that looks as smooth as a freshly shaven baby. A peppermint scrub and moisture mask swathe corporeal casings during the 50-minute body scrub, which also employs a gentle glycolic concoction to eliminate dry, dead skin. Throughout the two treatments, a peppermint-sugar lip scrub works to exfoliate lips to achieve a candy-cane sheen. Like kissing the most handsome snowman, a top coat of peppermint balm imbues lips with a refreshing tingle.
