To attain the rosy glow of flushed cheeks, 18th-century ladies often took snowballs to the face, nuzzled fire-ant hills, and bench pressed child princes. Give your complexion a painless glow with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a one-hour spa facial at Silhouettes Day Spa (a $65 value).
The savvy skin smoothers at Silhouettes Day Spa brandish an array of beautifying techniques to buff away blemishes within a serene, pampering atmosphere. Pore professionals customize the one-hour spa facial to each customer's specific epidermal needs, coddling fair or dry skin and taming feral facades. After a thorough cleansing and toning, aestheticians rid cranial frontispieces of dead skin with a gentle exfoliation. Then the pampering pros execute extractions designed to blast away blackheads and shellac stressed-out skin with a soothing mask, leaving exteriors as soft and brilliant as Einstein's mustache. Indulge in an eye treatment to revamp weary sight receptors, and then replenish parched surfaces with a moisture-therapy treatment.
Switch off cell phones, leave children at home, and relax as epidermal doyens primp pores in one of Silhouette Day Spa's eight private rooms, enticing entrants with soothing creamy white walls and muted lighting. The reception area is rife with burgundy leather couches corralled around a TV, and it offers small lockers for storing purses or briefcases filled with important Mad Libs.
