Between sweat, sunscreen, and SEPTA exhaust, summers in Philly aren’t too easy on the pores, and your face could likely benefit from a little refresher right about now. Something a little more effective than, say, a Biore strip, but less frightening than anything involving local anesthetic.Classic Rescue Facial at Rescue Spa, $110
Combining dermatology with soothing spa practices, Rescue Spa is pretty serious about facials. The Classic Rescue Facial, for instance, begins with a skin assessment, and it even treats the neck, decolletage, and hands with skin type-specific potions and serums. This is the spa that stocks the Biologique Recherche P50 Lotion you keep hearing about. Medical Arts Building, 1601 Walnut Street, 3rd floor; Rittenhouse Square
