A face can both hide and reveal a person's age, just as a hand can both hide and reveal a child's nose after an uncle has mysteriously removed it. Unveil a renewed visage, including its nose, with today's Groupon: for $50, you get the Radiance for Thirsty Skin facial and eyebrow wax at Luminous in Wayland (a $110 value).
Owned by an aesthetics educator, Luminous cultivates skin's natural beauty with an extensive selection of indulgent facials that have garnered the skincare studio multiple nods from the WickedLocal.com Readers Choice Awards over the last three years. The 75-minute Radiance for Thirsty Skin facial ($90) hydrates faces with Dermalogica skincare products and other ingredients, massaging honey into thirsty pores to keep them shiny and fresh. Countenance curators then blanket faces with a warm paraffin mask for an extra layer of hydration, making the Radiance for Thirsty Skin facial an ideal treatment for those with dry skin or those who have dorsal fins. After inundating your visage with a fresh coat of salutary moisture, pick off bristly stragglers with an eyebrow wax ($20) to show clingy hairs the door with a hard-wax agent agreeable to even the most sensitive skin.
Nestled within a converted Victorian home, Luminous hosts the ghosts of dead skin cells often seen trying to enter through the shuttered frames of the house's many windows. Once inside, clients can drift into a relaxation-themed daze induced by the rhythmic bubbling of fountains and the sweet smell of gardenias.
