A beautiful face acts as an impermeable container that keeps inner beauty from escaping, just as a Hot Pocket's flaky outer crust acts as a vessel that makes its molten innards edible while skateboarding. Heat up your inner glow with today's Groupon: for $50, you get an Aveda custom facial (an $85 value) and an eye-zone treatment (a $15 value) at Lux Spa and Fitness (a $100 total value).
Lux Spa and Fitness relaxes and rejuvenates corpuses within its clean, 6,500-square-foot confines, where employees perform a survey of services that harness the botanical power of high-end Aveda products to cleanse, hydrate, and imbue skin with youthful oomph. Quench pre-pampering thirsts with lemon-lime water in the waiting room before undergoing a two-pronged facial package. The custom facial incorporates a treatment mask and massage, as well as aromatherapy and a combination of products tailored for each client's individual skin type and tendency to trip face-first into vats of butter. Next, one of the spa's staffers will conduct an eye-zone treatment employing flower-based formulas and gentle massage to cool and replenish the thin skin that surrounds peepers. Together, both services last a scant 50 minutes, freeing up the rest of the day to coyly wink at yourself in the mirror.
Balance Spa and Fitness
Whatever spa treatment you're in the mood for—a facial, a hot-stone massage, a body wrap, a waxing, a mani-pedi—it's advisable to budget an entire afternoon for Balance Spa and Fitness. Since the spa offers complimentary access to its lavish amenities, the extra time can be spent simmering in the jacuzzi, taking a leisurely dip in the pristine indoor lap pool, or working up a sweat in the fitness center. When treatment time arrives, the staff leads its robe-clad clients to one of the four private treatment rooms. The specialists favor advanced Naturopathica products made from age-defying ingredients such as soothing aloe, refreshing lavender, and Helen Mirren's DNA.
