Though best known for expanding the limits of human thought, the great philosophers were also ardent proponents of skin treatments—rarely furrowing their brows without first applying a de-furrowing cucumber mask. Wipe out your philosophical furrows with today's deal: for $48, you get $145 worth of spa services at Hands of Health and Rehabilitation on Tillman Street. Buy up to three of today's Groupon and triple your skin-haul.
Hands of Health is a day spa that dishes out steaming dollops of beautification and relaxation. Give clogged pores the arts-and-crafts treatment with a clay-pack facial ($40), an hour-long karate chop against acne and blackheads, or cleanse and exfoliate with a 30-minute mini facial ($35). A rosacea mask ($45) reduces the dilated capillaries, congestion, and blotchiness of rosacea while soothing away irritation with blends of green tea, chamomile, and licorice. Relieve a stressed-out soul sack with a variety of massage treatments, ranging from a basic hour-long Swedish ($55) to a lymph-drain massage ($70) tailored to drain retained water and quietly usher trapped toxins into a nearby backalley. Finally, smooth out your bodyscape with waxing services for mood-revealing eyebrows ($15), the stiff upper lip ($10), and a beachy bikini area ($40). All of these services are performed in a soothing spa environment of private treatment rooms, simply decorated with whitewashed walls, venetian blinds, and tall candles.
While an indulgent afternoon of successive spa treatments is the only fitting result of a Pop Tart and champagne breakfast, those who prefer to ration their decadence can spread this Groupon out over two visits.
