Recommended facials for bad skin

Before children I had great clear skin, since my second, I've had bad under the skin kind of spots on my cheeks, chin and forehead with dry patches in other places on my face. Attractive sounding I know, but I would love to get back some of my glow!

I wondered if anyone can recommend a beauty brand that offers good quality facials for this kind of skin to help clear it up? Or am I better just sticking with a good routine and hoping it will get better. I've been quite stressed, I thought a facial would also help with some relaxation. I know that more sleep and being less stressed would help, but that isn't something I can immediately change unfortunately, due to work.

Any advice much appreciated.

If you really want some advice on how to improve your skin... See the amazing faces quiche thread. I thought I had naturally rubbish skin, but after following the advice on there I have skin I can't believe: smooth, pores almost normal, hardly any blemishes, crease between my eyes much diminished. It gets quite complicated over there, if you want me to post my simple version of the routine I will. Good luck.

A simple version would be much appreciated. My brain is a bit frazzled at the moment. Thanks very much.

My version... I am not an expert!
1. Hot cloth double cleansing. I use a flannel, in warm/hot water, first use cetaphil then super drug hot cloth cleanser. Even this step made an enormous difference at the beginning
2. Super drug exfoliating pads - in a tub, chemical exfoliator. Huge difference to my pores.
3. Serum - I have some Aldi stuff I really like.
4. Moisturiser. I pushed the boat out and got some Bravura glycolic moisturiser, which got my skin so smooth,but v expensive. Super drug do a glycolic serum, then moisturise with cheaper stuff.

1 single hot cloth cleanse
2 exfoliating pads
3 moisturise - aveeno at the moment as I have loads of it and I still like it.

I never thought I wood be following so many steps but it doesn't take long and the difference is great.

I recommend Dermalogica facials.
