Best Facial

  • Julia March Skincare

    177 Prince St., nr. Sullivan St., third fl.; 212-253-2242

    Before she even puts her hands on your face, Julia March knows what you had for breakfast, how much coffee you drink, if you’re trying to quit smoking and any chronic pain you’ve been dealing with. It’s the kind of information you’d expect a doctor to want to know, but not necessarily the woman who’s going to rub cream into your skin. Her techniques are outstanding, of course—the massage that accompanies each treatment will lull you into a semi-comatose state—but the in-depth interest she takes in each client’s overall well-being, plus her targeted consultations on integrating natural ingredients into daily skincare routines (yogurt face masks, olive-oil hair treatments), make her exceptional. A one-woman show, March has the full complement of facial techniques in her tiny Soho office (dermabrasion, glycolic acid), but her standard, well-priced facial, using gentle, plant-based aromatic oils products from Anakiri and Shira will leave you glowing.
