Putting your best face forward can impress other people, while putting your best face backward can help you befriend an owl. Better your beak with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a 30-minute express custom-blend facial (a $65 value) and a 30-minute hydrating back treatment (a $65 value) at Wholistic Skin Care Specialist, located inside Hara Health and Pure Acupuncture (a $130 total value).
Experienced aesthetician LaTonya Saqiid, dubbed the Wholistic Skin Care Specialist, pampers patrons’ skins with all-natural products and spa services designed to relaxingly reconnect the mind and body. During the express custom-blend facial, LaTonya treats each client's epidermal woes with customized organic masks and serums, helping to rejuvenate even skin that once vowed to never again leave its recliner. Then she’ll slather backs with a paraffin mud mask to exfoliate and detoxify skin before kneading knots from muscles with an essential-oil-infused back massage. The one-hour barrage of beauty treatments encourages stress to retreat slowly from the body like an ice-cream sundae edging away from an unfriendly spoon.
The Wholistic Skin Care Specialist
If Latonya Saqiid's achievements and dedication to skin care are any indication, even her resume is soft, smooth, and wrinkle-free. The aesthetician began her career in cosmetics, working for Calvin Klein, Christian Dior, and Laura Mercier before transitioning to the skin care industry. With an aesthetician license and training from Glo Theraputics and Eminence Organics, she oversees things at The Wholistic Skin Care Specialist. Her holistic approach means that she considers the mind/body relationship when helping clients both look and feel better. Her service menu runs the gamut from custom blend facials to acne treatments, organic makeup artistry, and private skin consultations, during which she assesses the skin's health and devises a plan to make it as spotless as a narcissist's trophy case. Latonya's other services include eyelash extensions, acupuncture, and full-body waxing.
