New at Violet Skin Boutique: The Coconut Facial

You slug the water and slather on the oil; it's safe to say your coconut obsession is at its apex. (Although that whole oil pulling thing? Nuh-uh.) Take your affection to the next level with the new coconut facial at Violet Skin Boutique.

The 75-minute treatment starts with exfoliating and extractions before moving on to the main event: a creamy, whipped, delicious-sounding mask full of avocado and coconut oils, both of which have sun-combating hydrating benefits. The near-edible treatment ends with the salon's signature face, neck, and decollete massage, which deserves a visit unto itself.—Meaghan Agnew
