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