Like your pet iguana's fragile ego, sometimes skin needs to be soothed and pampered before it's ready to network at a crowded cocktail party. Put your best face forward with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a diamond-tip microdermabrasion with a re-educating mask and makeup application (a $169.70 total value) at Pure Tranquility Day Spa, located on Talbot Street in St. Thomas.
Housed in a historic 19th-century storefront, Pure Tranquility Day Spa caters to weather- and care-worn epidermises, with an emphasis on meeting each individual's specific needs. Clients can soothe pre-treatment jitters with a beverage from the spa's tea and juice bar prior to their date with diamond-tipped destiny, a crystal-free microdermabrasion treatment ($124.50) that sheds dead cells while resurfacing the skin. Fresh-faced patients are left with clearer, smoother countenances and a glow that emits higher radiance than your cat's favourite laser pointer. Next, skin gets schooled with a re-educating mask and a makeup application with Jane Iredale mineral makeup, a cruelty-free collection good on almost any type of skin or scale ($45.20).
