Skin keeps us from overheating, shields us from the cold, and prevents our internal organs from staring directly into the sun. Serve your gall bladder’s sunglasses with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a Dead Sea–salt glow body scrub and a spotless pore-purification back treatment (a $125 value) at Helle, a skin sanctuary and salon.
City dwellers seeking refuge from life’s constant marching-band ambushes can relax inside Helle's urban oasis while indulging in a variety of skincare, hair, and bodywork services. Let trained aestheticians deep clean and exfoliate your whole body with the Dead Sea–salt glow (a $55 value), which scrubs away dermis debris from head to toe to tentacle, then seals in relaxation with an aromatic oil application and a cocoon of steamed towels. After a thoroughly relaxing scrub down, the spotless pore-purification treatment (a $70 value) buffers backs with steaming, cleaning, exfoliating, and extraction to soothe the body’s knapsack carrier into buttery submission. Skin cells repay their owner with silky smooth texture, a summery glow, and an advance payment on epidermal rent.
A spread of custom spa and salon services foster aesthetic peace in a relaxed, homey setting. Skincare treatments are tailored with Dermalogica's brand of highly customizable products and special salves made in-house to prevent curfew violations. Drawing on Chinese, Ayurvedic, and Western medicine systems, the beauty therapists diagnose conditions such as poor circulation and dehydration, which can inform single treatments or a six-week regime to reset skin function. Paul Mitchell and Awapuhi Ginger products help stylists wrangle unruly halos in an intimate salon room with baroque gold mirrors and pink-on-pink stripes. Each treatment is given a heavenly name to emphasize Helle's good and evil theme, which is echoed in the spa's crimson paint job and matching velvet tufted couch.
