What's Your Facial Frequency?

I'm always hearing these Hollywood celebs profess their love and loyalty to their facialists. I WISH I could say something like, "I owe my gorgeous skin to Kate Somerville!" It just sounds fabulous, doesn't it?

But the reality is, I rarely have time to get facials, or any other spa treatments, for that matter. If spas were open 24 hours a day, maybe things would be different, but right now it's just not in the cards. I had an opportunity for a mini-facial the day of the manicure from hell, but ended up chickening out - I was in the middle of the skin freakout that inspired that Cetaphil post, so I didn't want to take the chance of aggravating things further.

In fact, the closest thing I've had to a facial in recent memory is the "pasta facial." You know, when you're draining pasta over the sink and get a nice blast of steam? That. The pasta facial is fun, but damn, it's no Kate Somerville.

What about you? Tell me...
