Aunt Fanny’s kumquat basket took a dumpster dive. Nan’s fruitcake met a similar fate. (May they rest in peace.)
So much for respecting the fruit of their labors.
Get a taste of your own medicine with a fruit pulp and spice purifying facial at TheWit. The exfoliation treatment uses natural acids in fruits and spices to remove dry, dead skin and clear clogged pores.
Start with a serious steam, followed by fruit pulp or enzyme exfoliation and stimulant (paprika, lime, Hungarian mud) to amp up blood flow. While your skin breathes, your arms and neck are treated to a heavenly rubdown. Gentle extractions come next, then a mask (cooling blueberry revitalizes skin and hastens healing). Top it off with a moisturizing serum with UV protection.
Go on now.
The time is ripe.
