Best Facial
Yasmine D'jerradine
30 East 60th Street
212-588-1771

Oxygen, vitamin C, remodeling, laser lift . . . choosing among the litany of facials available today can produce enough stress to make you break out. Do you want skin that is cleansed but not toned? Nutrified but not exfoliated? Fortunately, a couple of spas have devised facial regimens that actually combine two procedures. Perennial champ Yasmine D'jerradine does a double-header toning, beginning with one of the most thorough electronic muscle-stimulation treatments around and finishing with a mask of pure collagen ($120).

Completely Bare
764 Madison Avenue
212-717-9300

Though hair removal is the specialty, Completely Bare offers a one-two punch called the power peel: A half-hour microdermabrasion to remove tired skin and an hour-long electronic "techno lift" to perk up sagging muscles leave the skin radiant ($150).

Dorit Baxter Day Spa
764 Madison Avenue
212-717-9300

And for the active set, Dorit Baxter offers a terrific sports facial geared to athletic types (warm mint-tea solution softens bumps, and a mask of cod-liver oil, thyme, and kaolin helps reduce impurities and minimizes pores), which she pairs with a fruit-enzyme peel ($85).
