The body may be a temple, but even grandiose structures can deteriorate if they're not regularly smothered with buttressing lotions. Preserve your personal shrine with today's Groupon: for $79, you get a spa package, which includes an express Pure Focus facial, Caribbean Therapy mani-pedi, and makeup application (a $180 total value) at Tuscan Sanctuary Salon Spa, with locations in Olympia and Gig Harbor.
After a short consultation with an Aveda skin specialist, the 30-minute express Pure Focus facial will commence with the application of skin products to cleanse, tone, and hydrate guilty consciences before doing the same to the owner's face. Take soon-to-be affable appendages on a tropical retreat to Caribbean Therapy mani-pedi paradise, where hands and feet are engulfed in exotic aromas as nails are cared for, a salt and sugar scrub exfoliates, and a ginger and seaweed mask leeches meddling sea monkeys from every appendage pore. A professional makeup application is the icing on the face cake, all without the hassle of lit face candles.
Guided by socially conscious principles for more than 30 years, Aveda produces a full line of natural beauty products carried at nearly 7,000 salons and spas. Popular gorgeous-makers such as Shampure shampoo and witch hazel hair spray deliver on Aveda's commitment to well-rounded earthly beauty with eco-friendly packaging cradling ingredients derived from the world's finest and least selfish plants.

Salon Milano and Spa
At Salon Milano and Spa, plant-based Aveda products lend customized aromatherapy and natural nutrients to salon and spa services. The products' holistic focus matches the manner in which the staff conducts spa services: in addition to explaining the purpose of each step in the facial or massage, therapists also guide clients through stress-relieving visualization exercises to calm the mind. All treatments are customized, from the aromatherapy of a massage to the angle of the cut performed by senior or new-talent stylists in the salon. Tuscan Sanctuary is open late on weekdays to accommodate busy schedules and UV rays that, like Napoleon and his chef after saying they preferred English bread to baguettes, are exiled.
