Always start with freshly cleansed skin so that ingredients can be absorbed more easily later," says Karen Terranova of NYC pampering mecca Great Jones Spa. "To ensure you're thorough enough, sing 'Happy Birthday' as you suds up with cleanser. Follow with a gentle scrub to slough away flakes."
Cut back on time by using a motorized cleansing brush with your face wash—the vibrating technology removes debris to minimize pores and blackheads in a hurry.
MC TIP: Use an alcohol-free toner in between every step of the facial to rebalance your skin's pH.
