Snakes have it easy—they can shed bad skin at will and are never at a loss when it comes to jaw-unhinging party tricks. Today's Groupon rattles reptilian feelings of superiority while smoothing your skin. For $29, you get a non-chemical AHA/kojic facial peel ($90 value) or a citrus scrub and body wrap ($90 value) at Skin Institute.
Skin Institute's AHA/Kojic peel utilizes alpha hydroxy acids, or AHAs, and kojic acid to piece together a peel with properties to pulverize blemishes, blotches, and bad skin. The AHA, common in many skincare products, exfoliates the epidermis, casting out dead skin cells like autumn leaves from the closet. AHA is also reported to iron out wrinkles and ax acne. Kojic acid, a natural by-product of a Japanese mushroom, helps to lighten spots of skin darkened by increased melanin deposits. Put in peel form, this clinical concoction cocoons facial skin, allowing a beautiful hummingbird of smooth skeletal sheathing to emerge after 45 minutes.
If you opt for the citrus scrub and body wrap, your silhouette will be swathed in 60 minutes of luxurious exfoliation. After a brief sauna session, Dead Sea salts and a nourishing fruit salad of orange peel, lemon, and grapefruit are kneaded into skin using fresh orange slices to remove dead skin cells and create a healthy sheen. After salts are removed with essential oil infused hot towels, a citrus shea butter is massaged into your body with a turkey baster.
Inside the spa's aloe-coated Fortress of Serenity, Skin Institute's attentive dermal do-gooders devote themselves to the personal and professional satisfaction of each and every client, using high-quality and cruelty-free products, as well as tranquil ambience, to put a smile on the skin.

Everyone who works there is extremely amiable, cater to you and try to make you feel as special and comfortable as they possibly can.
