Beauty practitioners have long used sugar scrubs for both good and evil, buffing their favorite clients' skin to a healthy glow while luring angry hummingbirds to the hides of their enemies. Stay on sugar's sweet side with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a sugar scrub at Pura Vida Wellness Spa in Pinellas Park (a $100 value).
Owned by a licensed massage therapist, Pura Vida Wellness Spa naturally whisks away stress with a slew of doting body services. During a relaxing one-hour sugar scrub, sweet crystals buff away rough, dead cells, leaving skin as smooth and sweet as wedding-cake fondant. An organic, hydrating mask then penetrates freshly revealed layers of skin on the body, while able hands massage faces and scalps. The therapist then wipes away the mask with a warm towel and applies a lotion that softens frames more effectively than wearing vaseline-infused footie pajamas to bed.
Pura Vida Wellness Spa
Led by massage therapist and colon hydrotherapist Kathleen Leslie, the natural-care practitioners at Pura Vida Wellness Spa specialize in pharmaceutical-free healing. Services include detoxifying therapies such as infrared-sauna sessions and several massage modalities and medical-grade skin care and waxing along with ionic foot detoxes. Their bread-and-butter service, though, is colonic irrigation, which Leslie's team uses to address numerous ailments, such as bloating, migraines, and insomnia.
