Skip the trendy spa ser­vices for th­ese two tried-and-true fa­vorites for spring-ready skin.

The beauty in­dus­try en­dures its share of trends, but the se­cret to good skin isn’t found in a fad. Th­ese fa­cials have stood the test of time—at least three pres­i­dents’ worth!—to de­liver spring-ready skin. Ap­ple & Pa­prika Ex­fo­li­at­ing Fa­cial at Ce­ladon Sa­lon & Spa

Years in ser­vice: 15.

Not-so-se­cret in­gre­di­ents: This plant-based fruity fa­cial uses or­ganic ap­ple and acidic pulp to re­move dead skin and clear pores. Pa­prika and other herbs work to boost blood flow—nec­es­sary for that cov­eted, ul­tra-hy­drated glow. Why peo­ple love it: It’s or­ganic skin­care (not some­thing peo­ple cared about when it first ap­peared), and it’s packed with re­sults-ori­ented in­gre­di­ents. “It gives you that post-fa­cial glow,” says Ce­ladon owner Ju­dith Korit­sas, “that makes your friends say, ‘What have you done? Your skin looks great!’” 1180 F St. NW, 202-347-3333; celadon­spa.com

Oxy­gen In­fu­sion Fa­cial at Red Door Spa in The Wil­lard In­ter­Con­ti­nen­tal Years in ser­vice: 10.

Why it works: A cool mist of pres­sur­ized oxy­gen—in­fused with gold, sil­ver, zinc, and iron for their an­tibac­te­rial prop­er­ties—soothes skin, re­duces puffi­ness, and min­i­mizes red­ness and in­flam­ma­tion for hy­drated, firmed skin. Why peo­ple love it: “They see in­stant re­sults!” says Cor­nelia Zicu, global chief cre­ative of­fi­cer at Red Door Spa. “It’s safe for all skin types, and per­fect to re­fresh and awaken dull win­ter skin.” 1401 Penn­syl­va­nia Ave. NW, 202-9422700; thered­door.com/lo­ca­tions/wil­lard-in­ter­con­ti­nen­tal
