Celebrate the season with this express facial from Grace Macnow’s no-frills spa. After lying down on a massage table in one of the two curtained-off treatment areas, your technician cleanses your skin with a milk-based solution, removing makeup and impurities. Then comes the cool, antioxidant-rich pumpkin concoction, made in-house with glycolic acid, which works as an exfoliator. While the mask sets, you’ll receive a relaxing 15-minute hand, arm and neck massage. The dried mixture is then rinsed off, revealing soft, supple skin with a lingering pumpkin-pie scent. Through Dec 1. Graceful Services, 1095 Second Ave between 57th and 58th Sts (212-593-9904, 30mins $50.
