Rejuvenating spas are like body-based time machines, restoring skin to the soft, smooth state of its past so that it can doggedly try to kill the future leader of the cellular resistance movement. Terminate dry, dull skin with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a 90-minute signature-facial-and-massage package at Spa Hydra (up to a $180 value) in Long Island City.
A 45-minute signature facial kicks off a refreshing spasperience with a one-on-one face-mapping consultation to discuss your skincare goals. Based on the client's desires, aestheticians will then prettify faces with a unique blend cleansing, light exfoliation, masks, and extractions if necessary. A facial massage rounds out the treatment, helping to relax and tone frontispieces, while encouraging lymphatic and blood circulation to yield a clear and radiant complexion. Next, a 45-minute signature massage will mollify muscles with Swedish and deep-tissue strokes. Aimed at relaxation and improved circulation, the massage melds hands-on therapy with calming hot towels and aromatherapy intended to envelop bodies in tranquility so you'll leave the Spa Hydra premises with your muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.
