To attain the rosy glow of flushed cheeks, 18th-century ladies often took snowballs to the face, nuzzled fire-ant hills, and bench pressed child princes. Give your complexion a painless glow with today’s Groupon: for $42, you get an enzyme facial at Kayaa Spa, in Campbell (an $85 value).
Owned by a trained and licensed aesthetician, Kayaa Spa doles out skincare for the entire body, treating problems ranging from aging skin to sun damage to acne-prone spots. The enzyme facial gives stuck-up pores their comeuppance, masking mugs in 50 minutes of exfoliating bliss. A papaya enzyme treatment breaks down outer layers of skin, removing dead cells from its surface. Deep cleansing then purges comedones, or blackheads, from pores that have been hoarding excess oils and Hummel figurines. The gentle nature of the papaya extracts combined with the intense exfoliation makes this facial ideal for sensitive, congested, dull, and easily offended skin. Groupon users are also invited to take advantage of a 15% discount on a series of six skin services.
