I've never had a facial at a salon before and was wondering what they do. Do they draw all the bad stuff out of pores? Do your pores get smaller (specifically on your nose)? At a facial do they recommend a skin care regiment for your skin type?

Or do they just massage your face and put a mask on it with cucumber slices over the eyes like on TV ?

Basically I'm just curious if it's worth trying once or if it's a waste of money.

On the other hand, what kind of over the counter products do you use that work well? I just use soap, water and moisturizer. I don't know if you are supposed to do a scrub every so often or use a mask or anything like that. Any input is appreciated!
