Before battle, samurai warriors gently exfoliated and deeply cleansed their pores so they could slay foes with one sexy glance. Become an aesthetic warrior with today's Groupon: for $65, you get a diamond-peel facial plus a mani-pedi (a $205 total value) from La Peau Day Spa, located in SoHo.
Inconveniences such as the sun, time, and slow-moving supermarket queues can wear and weather even the most durable of skullmasks. During a 75-minute diamond-peel facial ($170), La Peau's certified aestheticians use a diamond-tipped wand to painlessly chisel away and vacuum up dead cells that have amassed on the skin like discarded potato chips on a slip-and-slide. The diamond-peel facial helps treat uneven skin coloring, aging spots, acne scars, sun-damaged skin, dry skin, and large pores. Freckle farms buzz with a renewed sense of self-worth, just in time for harvest. Included in this deal is a mani-pedi ($35), with La Peau's mani-pedi masters clipping, styling, and applying polish to fingers' helmets and toes' togas in an effort to elate extremities.
La Peau Day Spa's spacious residence in SoHo covers 3,000 square feet; there are 15 cozy private rooms serving as base camps for exfoliation expeditions. Even with such a sprawl, La Peau's staff creates a welcoming atmosphere, sure to soothe even the jitteriest of clogged pores. An appointment is required.

- I love my result after having the diamond facial: it definitely removed the dead skin/cells that were accumulated on the surface of my face, and revealed my true layer of skin. I loved it!

La Peau Day Spa
Soft track lighting blooms across the exposed brick, potted plants, and floor-to-ceiling artwork at La Peau Day Spa. The scents of sea mud, milk, and honey fill 15 private treatment rooms in the 3,000-square-foot facility. Aestheticians wield those and other paraben-free, natural ingredients beneath shelves of Le Mieux, Dermalogica, and G.M. Collin elixirs. Green-tea baths soak feet in antioxidants, releasing steam that hints at crushed herbs, open fields, and the only food teddy bears know how to prepare.
