The Spa Treatments To Try Before A Special Event

When: 3 to 4 months out

"Peels are exactly as the word would suggest, peeling layers of the skin," says Roberts. The intensity, she says, depends on the results you're after. "With age or after acne, the skin can appear uneven and dull in appearance. Removing it at a deep level will leave skin looking fresh." A physician would perform a more intensive peel like this, she notes, as it removes more skin and calls for more post-treatment care. Because of side effects (redness or puffiness), schedule your last peel for no later than a month before the event. And like with lasers, if you're operating on a last-minute basis, skip 'em.

On a time crunch? Estheticians can perform milder versions of peels, like exfoliators, which are often part of a facial. Exfoliation usually falls into two categories: enzyme peels (with ingredients like pumpkin, pineapple, and papaya) and chemical peels (with ingredients like AHA, glycolics, and BHAs), Roberts says. The former is gentle and OK for all skin types. It aids in removing dead cells and leaving the skin with a nice healthy glow, she says. The latter is a bit harsher and might not be the best if your skin is super sensitive.

Want something you can do at home? Microdermabrasion, which requires no downtime (score!), can be worked into your at-home monthly skin-care routine, Roberts says. (Or try at-home microneedling, the new skin-care treatment you should know about.)
