Best No-Nonsense Facial

Yana Herbal Beauty Salon
270 Sixth Ave., nr. Bleecker St. 212-254-6200
Yana Yusupidi is a tough-love facialist, which means you shouldn’t expect to doze while she’s doing extractions. But the techniques she’s using on your face come from years of study with her mother in their native Georgia. This is old-school, no-frills skin care, with instant results. She mixes and sells her own all-natural elixirs and tonics and dispenses them according to the dermatological ailments presented. A basic one-hour facial is $95, but Yusupidi’s specials (for acne, dry skin, and so on) are all $120. There’s also a $65 mini-facial that lasts half an hour.
