Your daily cleansing ritual isn’t enough. To improve the blood circulation in your face and remove comedones (derma lingo for whiteheads and blackheads), you need a regular facial. “If you have oily skin, get a facial twice a month. For normal to dry skin, once a month is fine,” recommends dermatologist Dr. Ellaine Eusebio-Galvez. Too busy to set an appointment? Try this basic treatment at home.
