The discovery of facials liberated humans from cracked, immobile skin, enabling expressions other than the grimace, the eye-roll, and the blink-chortle. Express yourself with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 60-minute aromatherapy facial at skin care by Karen Brody in Wicker Park (a $125 value).
Using methods inspired by Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic philosophies, Karen Brody's 60-minute aromatherapy facials restore tired mugs to fighting shape, rejuvenating skin's self-maintenance mechanisms to bring about long-lasting health and a resilient glow. Brody commences facials with a thorough skin analysis, turning a practiced eye on fatigued flesh to determine deeper issues, such as dryness, nutrient imbalance, or childhood keratin bullies.
Armed with information, Brody concocts a custom blend of essential oils and natural ingredients to apply to the face. A relaxing lymphatic massage helps the unique concoction penetrate deep into tissue, exfoliating skin and releasing visage-bound toxins. Customers find themselves lulled into a blissful state of blank-mindedness, perfect for the overly stressed or those attempting to outsmart psychic white-out containers.
