When blindfolds are tied too tightly around our eyes and our ears, it takes the sensitive touch of fingers and toes to make sense of newfangled fashions. Today's Groupon keeps your sensory channels clear and fabulous with a mani-pedi and an elixir drink for $32 at Sara Elizabeth Skincare and Nail Boutique (a $68 value). The fusion of Eastern skin philosophy and western technology at Sara Elizabeth inspires a youthful glow in diligent digits.
Sara Elizabeth Skincare and Nail Boutique is a celebrated salon that has earned the honor of Boutique Bliss from San Diego magazine in 2008, along with countless accolades for its masterful pampering and healthful elixirs. The three mani-pedi options ($29 for hands, $39 for feet) are administered in copper pots with rejuvenating organic and vegan products. Choose from the aromatic essences of Egyptian geranium essential oils, Indian frankincense, and Australian eucalyptus to soothe and balance the sacral chakra while softening skin. Your cuticles and keratin will emerge neatly groomed, brightly polished, and ready to connect paperclips better than before.
The revitalizing mani-pedi ritual is complemented by an elixir from Sara Elizabeth's elixir bar. Based on traditional Chinese medicines, the six available fruit and herb beverages contain concentrated antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that healthify and beautify the outside's inner workings. Elixirs are all-natural and contain no added sugars or preservatives. They leave clients feeling refreshed, buoyant, and glad they relinquished their extremities to the elegant salon with its gentle wooden accents, hints of bamboo and ginger, brass chandeliers, and flowers.

Sara Elizabeth Skincare
Sara Elizabeth Skincare's founder Sara Elizabeth Kuite has traveled the country to build her acute knowledge of bodily betterments, studying specialized skincare in New York City with celebrity facialist Ling Chan and scaling the Rocky Mountains to learn Japanese kobido massage techniques under sensei master Shogo Mochizuki. Today, she fuses Eastern ideas with Western technology in her current practice, which places an emphasis on deep healing and prevention of unnecessary epidermal wear. Her highly trained eyes carefully scan skin to spot specific conditions and create a personalized skincare regimen for each individual, and she gives each patient the time and attention they need to learn how to use products correctly and finally set the clocks on their VCRs.
Celery green walls and white overstuffed chairs provide a tranquil setting for all services, which include everything from anti-aging, hydrating, or exfoliating facials to hair removal with sugar paste or blue chamomile wax. Clients awaiting treatment may soothe sore eyes by browsing through a boutique stocked with skincare products such as Sara Elizabeth Botanical Skincare and Sara Elizabeth Advanced Skincare.
