A few years ago, I had a great facial. It was so great, in fact, that when I met my friend Trevor for lunch afterward, he said, "Wow, your skin's all... glowy." (Rule of thumb: If a guy notices your skin without being prompted, you know it's a good facial.)

Of course, since then, I've had some blah facials, too. It doesn't help that lots of dermatologists say that while facials can be relaxing, they don't offer any real benefits otherwise. What do you think? Do you think facials really help your complexion clear up, or is it just a relaxing treatment?
