The hottest new spa service takes the quest for perfect skin to a new place. Alex Kuczynski bravely investigates.
I went for a beauty treatment the other day. The aesthetician used an array of products by Yon-Ka and Sonya Dakar-exfoliants and cleansers and masks-and all the regular tools: tweezers, lancets, cotton pads. There was just one thing that was different: It was not my face getting the facial, it was my vulva.
Many years ago, back when my marriage was new, before we had two babies, there were days when I would dance off to get a bikini wax as if it was no big deal. I could blame something vague and anthropological like the influence of pornography on American culture. I could blame Eve Ensler and all those monologues. (Coochi Snorcher, anyone?) But I personally place all the blame on my friend Candace Bushnell, the author of Sex and the City. Because of her, the bikini wax somehow stealthily warped itself into one of the required grooming routines of the urban female.

SKIN TYPE: NORMAL
Spa Fix: Maintain the good skin you already have and get a fresh glow. Kate Somerville, L.A. facialist to Jessica Alba, suggests an exfoliation treatment that combines a physical scrub and a chemical peel, followed by intense hydration. If you don't need them, don't let your facialist do extractions, which can lead to blotchiness or marks.
Best Regimen: Commit to a daily routine. Doing this wards off future problems. "Start simple: a gentle cleanser and sunscreen," says New York dermatologist Amy Wechsler. Try Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser ($7.10) and L'Oréal Paris Active Daily Moisture Lotion SPF 15 ($17.99). At night, use a repairing moisturizer. Try Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream (left, $7.99).

Summer may be long gone, but the ugly effects of sun damage can linger on. Here's how to effectively get rid of dark spots, rough texture, and lackluster skin-fast.
20s SLATHER ON A SERUM
This tactic is perfect if you're short on time. New York dermatologist Patricia Wexler recommends exfoliating in the shower before applying a lightening serum and a moisturizer with SPF. You'll see a difference in 30 days. Try IS Clinical White Lightening Serum ($68) with Norwegian kelp and mushroom extracts and Patricia Wexler MD Skin Brightening Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 ($39.50).

If you completely revamp your routine, you're guaranteed to see results. "I believe in a daily system," says Wexler. "A treatment once a week or once a month won't accomplish that much." Kinerase PhotoFacials Sun Damage Reversal System ($100) comes with an exfoliating cleanser, a moisturizer with SPF 50 (to keep new spots at

1. Choose a Lighter Lipstick
Dark shades can be unflattering on mature skin because lips get thinner with age, explains makeup artist Matin Maulawizada, who works with celebrities like Angelina Jolie. To keep lipstick from looking too severe, choose rosy reds or flesh-colored shades, and stay away from peaches and oranges, which can make teeth appear yellow. We like Lancôme Color Design Lipcolor in Natural Beauty ($22). And remember, swiping on lipstick without other makeup can make you look older than if you wear no makeup at all.

2. Baby Your Hands
Derms agree that hands are a dead age giveaway. To keep them young, apply the same retinoid from your face to your hands and add a layer of Vaseline, says New York dermatologist Heidi Waldorf. Wear cotton gloves to bed to keep the treatment in place

On how she spends her spare time:
"I actually really love to lie in bed, watch TV, be a total sloth, and eat my favorite food: Kraft macaroni and cheese. Last night I was watching The Next Food Network Star, eating mac and cheese, and feeling grand. And that was after I wore a sequined Givenchy gown with giant holes cut out of it."
