A Skin Recovery Mini-Facial: Scenario 3

Welcome to part three of my Bella miniseries on the mini-facial, where I'll detail specific fast skin-recovery routines for those mornings where a face wash isn't enough. Sometimes your skin needs a little extra boost before you face the day, and we all know trying to mask a skin problem with makeup alone can only make it worse. So, check out our tips for righting what went wrong overnight.

Scenario 3: Ah, the morning plight of the scruffy man-loving lady. While you may not be able to get your guy to change his affinity for facial hair, find comfort in the fact that you're not alone. "This is a big problem for lots of my patients," says Dr. Doris Day, a Manhattan dermatologist. "What he can do is take a shower before the date, get a good shaving gel, and shave towards the end of the shower when the skin is softest and most hydrated, so he gets as close a shave as possible. This may mean he has to shave twice per day, but that's love."

Here's what to do when it's, er, not love:

  1. Wash your face with a calming cleanser, like Phisoderm Cream Cleanser for Sensitive Skin ($4.79).
  2. Apply a healing mask, like Chanticaille Jasmine & Lily Healing Mask ($70) to the affected area. An alternative is to chill a couple cucumbers and apply them where you have redness for about two minutes.
  3. Smooth on a soothing lotion, like Clinique Redness Solutions Urgent Relief Cream ($30).
  4. Once the cream has absorbed, apply a redness-reducing concealer, ideally one with a green base. Try Physician's Formula Gentle Cover Stick Concealer ($3.27).
