Your face is your personal billboard; if it falls into disrepair, teenagers will be tempted to spray-paint it with mustaches. Stave off surly graffiterati with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get an hourlong customized facial (a $135 value) at Jeunesse Spa and Salon, located inside the Empire Hotel near Lincoln Center. Choose from the following four options:
- Jeunesse European facial
- GloTherapeutics brightening facial
- GloTherapeutics clear-skin facial
- Men's facial
All facials at Jeunesse Spa strive to balance a scientific approach to skin care with a natural approach to addressing individual needs. Every appointment begins with a skin analysis, during which an experienced aesthetician will assess your skin condition in order to formulate a superbly customized facial that uses the options above as starting points. Over the course of the 60-minute treatment, skin will be cleansed, steamed, and exfoliated until it's softly cooing baby lullabies. A mask built specifically for you in lock-and-key fashion will adorn your façade to facilitate hydration and nurture a healthy glow. The European facial imports rejuvenating relaxation from across the pond straight into your skin cells, leaving you noticeably radiant and refreshed. The GloTherapeutics facials use revolutionary exfoliating chemicals to soothe and balance rebellious skin, and the men's facial is a clarifying, purifying, and hydrating experience.
All facials include a massage of the face, neck, and décolleté, which will add to the tranquility oozing from every nook and gulley of Jeunesse's brightly lit, nature-accented interior. A former architect founded the spa, so its details (such as showers in two of the seven treatment rooms) are well developed. Jeunesse Spa employs a uniquely holistic approach to beauty that fosters wellness in tune with the needs of your body and the season at hand. Call ahead to make an appointment.
- The minimalist approach took me by surprise, but within minutes I found myself liking it better than other spas where I’ve been overwhelmed by the scent of lavender massage oil or weird fake cricket noises being played in the background. The lack of sound and scent actually allowed me to focus on the incredibly relaxing strokes and let my mind wander into an extremely peaceful state. I felt so tranquil afterward that I decided Jeunesse Spa may be my go-to for massages from now on. – Bethany Heitman, Cosmopolitan
- Step into this UWS spa, attached to the schmaltzy Empire Hotel, and you won’t feel like you’re near bustling Lincoln Center. The underground haven has standard spa elements (lovely gold-hued lighting and iced lemon water), plus the lounging room (with plushy, cozy beds) and steamy showers are delightful. – Lauren Levinson, Time Out New York
