I’m the worst girl ever- until 3 months ago I had never had a manicure, I’ve still never had a pedicure and I’ve never had a facial.
As a part of my pre-wedding prep, I was thinking of getting a facial but I’m scared for two reasons:
1) that it just won’t do anything, and I’ll be out $100 for nothing
2) that they will beat the hell out of me and leave marks/scars (every pimple I get leaves a mark for months, many leave permanant scars.)
So which of you ladies get facials, where do you go and what do you get? I live in NYC so we have everything from the $30 hour-long facial in chinatown to the $400 celeb esthetician. My skin is actually pretty good acne-wise, but it’s been looking very dull lately. Help!

If you are up for it I suggest checking out chemical peels. I was in the same boat as you until I visited a medi-spa in my neighborhood. The dermatologist suggested a party peel also known as an illuminating peel.
The peel is super mild. There is no downtime and it only cost me $150. After the peel, your skin sheds microscopically over the next week until you have a smoother more glowy complexion. I was skeptical at first, but I’m seven days post peel now and thrilled!
The spa I used lists their peel ingredients on their website so I’ve included them for you below in case you want to look into this further.
Prepping Solution → Isopropyl Alcohol, Water/Aqua/Eau, Acetone
Peeling Solution → Alcohol, Salicylic Acid, Lactic Acid, Resorcinol, Panthenol, Isoceteth-20
