Smooth skin denotes optimal health, a habit of wearing sunscreen, and a staunch refusal to fall asleep on a pillow made of Legos. Make more appropriate impressions with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a regenerating facial at Helene’s Body & Skin Care in Atherton (a $110 value).
Licensed aesthetician Helene Corrales applies knowledge culled from the San Francisco Institute of Aesthetics and Cosmetology and National Holistic Institute to douse façades with a cornucopia of age-defying facial services. During the 75-minute regenerating facial, Helene combines a selection of professional-grade products into a concoction that deeply cleanses and hydrates all skin types. The facial ameliorates the woes of faces stricken with dryness from air travel, wrinkles from stress, and Lone Ranger masks from the Dollar Store. Façades emerge from the regenerating facial feeling refreshed and imbued with a glow normally reserved for radioactive fireflies.
