Without occasional pampering, bodies will eventually rebel by tattooing themselves with angry slogans or sprouting vestigial eyebrows. Ensure bodily obedience with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $125 worth of spa services at Skintelligent Face & Body Spa in Belmont.
Skintelligent Face & Body Spa pampers bone bags with an array of relaxing and beautifying treatments. Tickle your visage with one of the spa’s facials, such as the Ultimate exfoliating facial ($95), which draws on the powers of glycolic or lactic acid to remove outer layers of dead skin, revealing youthful undercells that glow like a snowman in a bowling alley full of black lights. Carcasses are relaxed into states of blissful torpor with bodycare services, such as the hot-stone back treatment ($85), which exfoliates and detoxifies skin with a mud scrub before a hot-stone application and massage sap out muscle-bound stress. Nail services such as manicures ($17) and pedicures ($38) keep extremities safely coated in chromatic polish, and waxing removes unwanted hair from areas ranging from the upper lip ($8) to entire legs ($80), leaving skin drag-free for office water-polo retreats.
Located in Belmont Center, Skintelligent is surrounded by quaint shops, delectable restaurants, and chic hair salons. The spa is easily accessible by commuter rail, making it ideal for a relaxing day away from the city's congested traffic, crowds, and increasingly sinister gangs of delinquent pigeons.
