    When it comes to our faces, we don’t rely on just anyone to tell us what our skin needs to get that ever-elusive glow. Instead, we turn to skin-care veteran (and celebrity fave!) Renée Rouleau, who knows it takes more than the right products to get radiant. Each week, she’ll be serving up her expert tips to keep your complexion in tip-top shape.
    Facials are an important (and often indulgent) part of keeping skin healthy and radiant. They provide intensive hydration, professional exfoliation, expert skin analysis, an increase in blood circulation (which is needed as you age), and even stress relief. Whether you're preparing for your first facial or your 30th, there are a few things to know before your next appointment. As an aesthetician who has given facials and skin treatments for more than 25 years, I have rounded up my top tips to ensure you get the most out of your experience. If you follow these six pointers, you're bound to get the most out of your facial experience. And, since these professional sessions can be costly, it's important that you feel satisfied with the treatment and end result.
