Photographed by Maria DelRio.
There's no one-size-fits-all facial – and that's a good thing. From the classic cleansing facial to the ones that use high-tech gadgets, lights, and lasers, people with every skin type, even the most sensitive, can find nirvana in the hands of a skilled dermatologist or aesthetician.
When your at-home treatments and topicals aren't cutting it, it's time to call the spa or the doctor's office. It's crucial to know what your skin needs, so you don't find yourself, for example, booking a chemical peel when you’re really just looking to rid yourself of a blemish. That's why we’ve mapped out everything you need to know to figure out the best facial treatment for your skin, ahead. Consider it part one of your journey to complexion perfection.
