Your face is your personal billboard; if it falls into disrepair, teenagers will be tempted to spray-paint it with mustaches. Stave off surly graffiterati with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get a 45-minute Fall in Love (with your skin) facial at skoah(an $89.25 value, including GST).This Groupon is valid at the locations in Kensington and Chinook Centre.
The artful aestheticians at skoah treat visages to complexion-beautifying skincare "workouts" intended to help assess the skin’s condition and equip face owners with an at-home maintenance regime. Designed to ready skin for autumnal elements, the 45-minute Fall in Love (with your skin) facial kicks off with a deep-cleansing treatment to squeaky cleanify skin and follows up with a double exfoliation that peels away evidence of extended sun kissing to reveal radiant epidermal planes. Once emotion expressers have been buffed, trod-upon toes get scrubbed into gleefully squealing piggies while a foot massage eases aches and a custom moisturizer hydrates sapped soles. Savvy skin trainers advise patrons about preparing skin for cooler temperatures, doling out advice on winterizing their regimens and tips about how to trick cheeks into hibernation. Guests leave skoah with a personalized, easy-to-follow skincare plan, boasting faces as glowing and smooth as a velvet nightlight.
Treatments at skoah employ the house line of products, concocted from skin-sprucing nectars and high-performance ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, and organic compounds. As an environmentally and socially conscious business, skoah supports the community by recycling all of their paper and plastic, donating their old bedding to Salvation Army shelters, and doling out pro bono facials to neighbourhood statues.
