To retain unkempt fingers and toes is to undermine their wish-granting potential. Compliment your crossables, purify your pores, and wish on a falling penny fountain with today's Groupon: for $49, you get one Natural Warm Cream Manicure, Pedicure of the Month, and European Facial at Skin the Day Spa, up to a $130 total value. Located near the San Antonio International Airport, the cozy Alamo Heights sanctuary is the recipient of a number of Citysearch awards, including Best Day Spa in 2007.
Skin the Day Spa prides itself on exceptional customer service, pampering men and women of all backgrounds, foregrounds, and poregrounds. Stop wasting time with peanut-butter bribes and let one of the spa's experienced aestheticians quickly lure your best face forward with a 55-minute European Facial ($70), including steaming, exfoliation, mask, massage, and extraction as needed. During the approximately 45-minute Natural Warm Cream Manicure ($20), an expert finger-tip rejuvenator will regale your mitten-stuffers with mollycoddling, shaping your nails, cosseting your cuticles, relaxing you with massage, and applying a fresh coat of shiny OPI polish. Finally, kick up your feet and indulge in the approximately 50-minute Pedicure of the Month ($35–$40). The prized pedi builds on all the classic toe techniques (grooming of nails and cuticles, massage, and polish), adding seasonal ingredients into both the water and the mask. May's pedicure features fresh rose petals ($40), while June's treatment tantalizes with tangerine ($35). Future Pedicures of the Month are yet to be determined; call or check the website for more information.
From the quaint, cottage-cradled comforts of Skin the Day Spa, customers lose themselves in the soothing music, cool colors, and gentle lighting. Appointments are required, so call ahead to schedule your deluxe day of services.
Citysearchers can't praise Skin the Day Spa enough. Not only do they give it five out of five stars, but they also named it the Best of Citysearch for facials, massages, spas, manicures, and pedicures in 2006, and best day spa and massage in 2007:
- Every year my husband and I make a point of going to Skin The Day Spa for Valentines Day…We have always been pleased with the service and hospitality. – marrisa15
- The ladies of Skin know how to take care of their customers. I have had several facials and get my brows done there somewhat frequently and I am always pleased. – salir
- I just came back from an overseas military job. Once I got back I called the people at Skin. Believe it or not those people remembered me. It's great to be remembered...they treated me as if they just saw me yesterday. – irmwirm
