Contrary to the popular beliefs of old wives, babies' bottoms are not the smoothest skin surfaces in the universe. That title actually belongs to the hides of European Deep-Pore-Cleansing Facial recipients. For $45, today's Groupon gives your body's face the rejuvenating treatment from Lia Schorr in Manhattan, a $95 value. Gather a gaggle of friends (both goose and human) for a grown-up field trip to the sanctuary where scofflaw facial flaws are put under arrest and promptly deported to thin air. Women and men alike can benefit from the restorative magic of this prudent process.
Skin is the protector of everything you're made of and also the most visible of your physical organs. Give your exterior a tender glow while weeding out blemishes, tightening pores, and restoring your childhood ability to name every state capital. Each skilled practitioner at Lia Schorr has the fountain of youth coursing through his or her veins, which is channeled into each facial. Over the course of 75 minutes they will take your facade on a journey from uneven to unbelievable.
Your purifying procedure begins with an upper-body massage. This relaxes blemishes hiding in pores by making them easy to remove, as they will be too docile to put up a fight. A gentle steaming completes your pores' grand opening. Impurities will dissolve like the wicked witch taking a bath in Fiji water. Next comes an exfoliation mask that leaves your face taut and de-stressed, shortly followed by a soothing mask to cap it all off. You'll leave with new face that feels strangely familiar, like you've seen it somewhere before, perhaps in your lucid dreams of Christmas past.

New York Magazine has this to say about Lia Schorr's facials:
- …thanks to deft finger work, a session in one of the spa’s cushioned recliners—from the invigorating pre-treatment neck, face, and shoulder massage to the soothing mask that’s painted on at the end to prevent red, blotchy marks—is near bliss (punctuated with a few well-executed extractions)… – New York Magazine
- This place may be small, but the service makes you feel like you're being pampered in a palace. The facial is a comfortable, relaxing experience... – reeno, Citysearch
- I saw results in one treatment already! It was surprising to see how quickly my skin responded to the quality care I received at the spa! My skin has regained it's [sic] elasticity and smooth complexion. I'm on my eighth treatment now and will never neglect my skin again. Lia Schorr put together an amazing spa experience that was custom designed for me and I have all my confidence in her and her staff and their knowledge of skin care. – NYChautestuff, Citysearch
