Facials

Stacy Cox, an aesthetician and owner of Pampered People, a Los Angeles day spa, suggests a treatment for every decade.

20s
You may have residual acne, but chances are your complexion is peaches-and-cream. Schedule European facials every three or four weeks, Cox advises, to maintain that glow, adding extractions when necessary.

30s
Although fine lines are starting to appear, roughness and dry patches are your main concerns. "The goal is to hydrate," says Cox, who recommends a moisture-intensifying, exfoliating facial, using a gentle fruit-based exfoliant called a gommage.

40s
Those creases are becoming more evident, and the area you forget to slather with sunscreen—your décolletage—is showing signs of aging. "A firming treatment every three or four weeks will tone and plump the skin there," promises Cox.
