Without face-pinching relatives, human heads would not have built up a natural defense against aging, sunlight, and grocery-shopping giants who mistake their heads for melons. Keep faces well loved with today's Groupon: for $39, you get your choice of microdermabrasion, a glycolic facial, or a pumpkin-apple-spice peel at Ultimate Skin Care Spa in Glastonbury (a $95 value).
With more than 20 years of experience, Ultimate Skin Care Spa’s owner, Terri, puts faces at ease with a variety of soothing services. The microdermabrasion treatment employs a mask of exfoliating grains and salicylic acid to give smooth refinement where polished-marble monocles have failed. Harness the magic of fruit in the pumpkin-apple-spice peel, where natural pumpkin enzymes and malic acid from apples help loosen and gobble up dead skin cells to lessen the appearance of pores, fine lines, acne, and evil stepmothers. Sweet and seafaring mugs can opt for a sugar-cane-derived glycolic facial that gently removes past-its-expiration-date skin with a lift-off mask of moisturizing seaweed and healing propolis.
With each facial treatment, guests receive refreshments and stalk pampering with a complimentary foot and leg massage to relieve sore points and muscles. Products including Sothys, Vivant, Epicuren, Glo Minerals, and the organic botanicals of Pevonia aid epidermis indulgence, leaving behind a soft feeling known only to hands discovering a bunny hideout inside velvet gloves.
Ultimate Skin Care By Terri
Owner Terri Czerwinski sees Ultimate Skin Care By Terri as an oasis where guests can disappear from the calendar grid. Having been a beauty consultant for more than 25 years, the licensed aesthetician hopes to takes minds away from life's bustling moments with skin, and cosmetic treatments. She draws from a stock of European product lines such as Sothys from Paris and Pevonia from Switzerland for all her facials, which target ailments ranging from dryness to sun damage. The natural ingredients in these serums help nurture healthy complexions: seaweed and vitamin C fight wrinkles in the Luminous Renewal facial, whereas the specialty skin facial's chamomile and green-tea extracts fade signs of rosacea.
Terri flatters faces with makeup artistry as well. Her makeup spa sessions cover techniques for applying cosmetics and identify which colors will accentuate each patron’s features for special events.
