$49 for a European-facial package (a $100 total value)
- European-style facial (a $60 value)
- Paraffin hand treatment (a $10 value)
- Pressure-point scalp massage (a $30 value)<p>
$55 for a hydrating paraffin facial (a $130 value)<p>
The package starts with a European facial, a one-hour basic deep-cleansing treatment that includes light extractions along the nose and chin areas. During this time, a corn-based exfoliator coats hands to slough away dead skin cells, after which hands are dipped in warm paraffin wax infused with lavender essential oils and encased in cotton mittens in a process that leaves hands soft and silky. For the pressure-point scalp treatment, tea-tree oil is applied to unclog pores and restore damaged follicles.<p>
The hydrating paraffin facial starts with the application of an electrical brush that exfoliates as it cleanses. Hospital-grade paraffin wax infused with lavender essential oils soothes the skin and leaves it hydrated and smooth.<p>
My Serenity Day Spa
Proprietor and medical aesthetician Andrea Juck cut her teeth as a print model before a mounting interest in behind-the-scenes beauty work led her to cosmetology school. After receiving her diploma but prior to establishing My Serenity Day Spa, Andrea painted known faces in New York City, including the guise of Liza Minnelli for her 2001 Madison Square Garden performance opening for Michael Jackson.
The skills that Juck developed in the Big Apple serve her well at her current base—an intimate, sunny Temecula retreat dappled with portraits of Old Hollywood stars. Moving swiftly within yellow walls and between directors' chairs stationed beside a spa bed, she daubs clients' façades with cosmetics from Laura Mercier and Chanel in a method that resists creasing, fading, and incoming pies. With a day's notice, Juck also concocts custom facials fresh from organic ingredients—such as lavender, avocado, and yogurt—to hydrate and exfoliate weary skin, and she uses all-natural beeswax to uproot unwanted hair with minimal irritation.
