Although your body is a temple, covering yourself in bits of stained glass and swallowing thousands of candles has yet to be proved an effective beautification method. Shine up your shrine with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $29 for a 30-minute express facial (a $65 value)
- $39 for a 50-minute signature facial (a $98 value)
- $59 for a 60-minute PCA Skin peel with a post-peel kit (a $135 value)
Following a consultation, express facials cleanse with a Clarisonic Pro brush and an AHA exfoliant treatment, ending with a hydrating application of PCA Skin Corrective Line products. Signature facials follow a similar beginning, but also include a choice of treatment, such as a clarifying mask or salicylic acid treatment. Both express and signature facials include a neck massage. Alternatively, PCA Skin peels gently smooth skin texture to leave faces glowing like a moonlit lake covered in lava.
The Encinitas Spa
The Encinitas Spa's specialty is skincare, a logical choice given the exposure bodies get in the local surfing community. To ready clients for Speedo season, certified body sugarers smooth on a low-temperature sugar formula that is less likely to yank tender tissues than conventional wax, but more capable of picking up very fine hairs without cheesy lines. Medical-grade products from PCA Skin work alone to peel away damaged cells, or in tandem with a Clarisonic Pro brush to thoroughly cleanse pores. Eight types of massage compliment these treatments, and are performed by certified holistic-health practitioners, who have honed their healing touch during at least 1,000 hours of training, and massage therapists with at least 500 hours of training. In addition to encouraging citizens to hit the beach, the team strengthens ties to the community through charitable work, recently participating in a fundraiser for the Susan G. Komen foundation.
