Studies show that modulating one's facial expression instantly builds camaraderie, whether by laughing at a joke, frowning at a sad story, or making empathetic fish lips at an unemployed merman. Prep your kisser for many roles with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a spa facial at Spa Belleza in Alexandria (a $70 Value).
Spa Belleza's seasoned aestheticians treat blemishes and dissolve the signs of aging with the customized ministrations of the Bioelements spa facial. Skin sessions begin with a detailed analysis, during which face wizards note a face's tendencies toward dryness, acne, and ventriloquism. Skin staffers then reboot complexions with a deep cleansing before coating visages in a customized mask that aims to oust acne colonies, rehydrate dry skin, or iron out pesky wrinkles. After an exfoliating scrub peels back rough outer layers, an extraction treatment cleans out pores to create a complexion clearer than a nudist ghost. The soothing treatment takes place in a spa nestled amongst the scenic foliage of the nearby historic Garden District.
