What You'll Get
When your stomach is unhappy, you get a stomachache, but when your face is unhappy, it drags you around by your tongue and makes your mouth hold a pen to write yourself an angry letter. Keep your face happy with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a one-hour oatmeal facial (an $85 value) and an eye-rescue treatment (a $30 value) at Skin Bar in Henderson (a $115 total value).
Coached by licensed aesthetician Lynda Dheming Moore, Skin Bar's expert team devotes its time to aiding and abetting any and all dermal vigilantes who walk through the doors with a vendetta against acne, dryness, sun damage, and the appearance of wrinkles. The one-hour oatmeal facial soothes skin and sprouts fresh-face flowers with a rejuvenating downpour of spring-like hydration. Beneficial to all skin types, especially dehydrated, sunburned, jack-o'-lanterned, or sensitive complexions, the treatment begins with a skin analysis before a deep botanical cleansing and gentle exfoliation evict pore-plugging debris and expired skin cells. Steam mingles with a lipid-laden oatmeal mask to firm, moisturize, and coax crimson hues from the visage. A light massage slays stress and defuses any accidentally swallowed land mines.
The eye-rescue treatment treats peepers to a mask that deflates puffiness caused by aging and late nights of listening to the telephone book on tape, infusing under-eye skin with much-needed moisture. A delicate massage of the ocular frames further reduces redness and inflammation.
The Fine Print

Aromatherapy can be used to soothe nerves and focus the mind, but for SkinBar's Lynda Dheming Moore, it sparked her entrepreneurial spirit. While working at an essential-oil company, Lynda discovered the benefits of plant extracts on the skin. This experience inspired her to enroll in aesthetics training and cosmetic chemistry classes at UCLA. This was in 1995, when Dr. Howard Murad was developing his holistic approach to skincare in nearby El Segundo, so she sought training from him after completing her coursework. She opened SkinBar nearly a decade later, after learning high-tech techniques at The International Dermal Institute and deepening her knowledge of skincare products at Dermalogica.
SkinBar stays true to its name, focusing exclusively on ways to smooth and refresh the saran wrap covering our faces and bodies. Facials reflect Lynda's diverse training, with involved rejuvenation methods involving gentle electrical impulses, salves enriched with goji berries to heal dryness, or retinoids to even out blotchy pigmentation. She still relies on Murad and Dermalogica tonics during treatments, but her library of products now includes bottles from Jan Marini and Obagi as well as cosmetics from Jane Iredale. Bluewick candles infuse the studio with relaxing aromas, and their scents seep into private chambers where massages ease pregnancy or melt knots with warm basalt stones. Waxing reveals radiant skin from under a wilderness of hair, and makeovers can accent facial architecture with pigment and eyelash extensions.
