For an Energized Glow

Dullness is a sign you need to exfoliate. "Skin holds on to dead cells rather than shedding them, especially during dry times like winter," says Robin Evans, a spa owner in New York City. Twice a week, apply an exfoliating mask.

Our Pick: Clinique Turnaround Instant Facial, $36.50, A low dose of salicylic acid dissolves dry cells; round beads whisk them away.

For Crystal Clear Pores

Scrub skin daily to soften the oil-trapping layer. Once a week, wrap index fingers in tissue and gently push down on pores after washing. "If the blemish doesn't budge after two tries, move on so you don't break the skin," Evans says.

Our Pick: Olay Dual Action Cleanser + Pore Scrub, $6.99, drugstores. The soft microbeads in this two-in-one wash are safe and gentle enough to be used every day.

For a Smooth, Tighter Texture

A decrease in collagen as you age brings on wrinkles. The fastest way to firm: Drench skin in moisture. "You'll plump up lines so they're less obvious," says Randy Stoloff, MD, a dermatologist and medical director at Topnotch Resort and Spa in Stowe, Vermont. Night creams hydrate best.

Our Pick: Grassroots Research Labs Blue Algae Enriched Firming Cream, $32.50, This lightweight gel is packed with amino acids that temporarily tighten your complexion, offering a firmer, more youthful look.
