Without spas, terrycloth bathrobes would have to make ends meet by taking part-time jobs as car-wash rags and Muppets. Help keep bathwear gainfully employed with today's Groupon to Skin by Elizabeth in Oakland. Choose between the following options:
- For $39, you get a one-hour customized facial (an $85 value).
- For $79, you get three Brazilian waxes (up to a $165 value).
Experienced aestheticians at Skin by Elizabeth pamper dermises with facials, peels, makeovers, and waxes. In the one-hour custom facial, aestheticians expunge pores and smooth cheeks with natural, organic products selected specifically for their powers over individual skin woes, from acne to stubborn face-paint whiskers. After cleansing excavates pore-dwelling dirt and oil, an exfoliation sloughs off dry, dull skin. A relaxing massage preempts the cooling mask, which instills façades with the indefatigable confidence of superheroes and Hamburglars alike. A trio of Brazilian waxes evicts unwanted fuzz, leaving skin silky smooth, with more lasting results than shaving. Expert aestheticians dip into jars of wax gentle enough for sensitive skin, aiming to quickly strip strands with minimal pain.
Although Skin by Elizabeth sometimes offers discounts online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Rockridge Day Spa
Rockridge Day Spa employs as many vegan and organic products as possible. These naturally derived palliatives aid the aestheticians as they design personalized facials that manage to hydrate, improve skin tone, or simply restore a youthful glow around the cheekbones. Body scrubs leave the skin soft and radiant by using everything from brown sugar and honey to antioxidant-rich strawberries and fizzy sparkling wine to exfoliate the topmost layers. Similarly, the spa's chemical peels and microdermabrasion sessions use more advanced approaches as they conceal the appearance of wrinkles and pigmented blemishes.
While sipping on a cup of tea, clients can dangle their toes over pedicure bowls and enjoy a thoroughly indulgent nail treatment that pampers the feet with mineral soaks and gentle massages. The spa's massage therapist indulges visitors even more by using a personalized blend of Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to soothe aching muscle and relieve the chronic pains caused by sleeping in a bathtub full of marbles.
