Post-long weekend skin revive
Coming off of a long weekend high by facing the reality of a work week can be tough. Needless to say, I'm desperately looking into ways I can treat myself despite having to readjust to the 9-5 after our holiday weekend. Tuesday is officially my spa day post-work to ease back into my week. Nothing says treat yourself more than a deep conditioning hair mask and face mask, am I right?
I've been swooning over my STARSKIN masks the last few weeks because they leave my skin feeling so radiant and healthy. So far, I've tried out the DREAMKISS Plumping & Hydrating Lip Mask, SILKMUD Green Tea Clay Anti-Aging Liftaway Mud Face Mask, AFTERPARTY Brightening Face Mask, MASTER CLEANSER Detoxing Sea Kelp Leaf Cleansing Foam and the GOLD MASK. Each has their perks but if you're one who is craving smooth skin and a full pore detox, a facial mask is the perfect way to do it. I typically do a facial mask 1-2 times a week, depending on how badly I'm breaking out and what sort of week I've been having. They really help me relax and unstress!
Here's a breakdown of the various masks I've tried and why you should give them a try yourself when you need a little me time:
DREAMKISS: A lip mask - quite a bit different if you are used to using facial masks! But this mask will leave your lips feeling smooth, nourished and plump. It contains vitamin-rich coconut juice which is great for mouisturizing! I even saw results after my first time using it!
AFTERPARTY: A mask for skin that is feeling a little dull. Containing Vitamin C, coconut juice and other herbal ingredients, this mask is designated to brighten your skin and minimize dark spots and even out your overall skin tone. I highly recommend using this mask the night before a presentation, a photoshoot or if you just want to have a little more of a glow.
SILKMUD: This mask is all about anti-aging and is more of your standard type of facial mask as it deeply cleanses your skin and tightens your pores. Your skin will be left smooth to the touch!
GOLD MASK: This mask is considered luxurious for a reason. Aside from its hard to miss gold packaging, the mask itself leaves your skin with great results as it is used to replenish your skin (great for dry, summer days). Your skin is sure to be left with a healthy glow after you have removed the mask.
MASTER CLEANSER: This foam's purpose is to remove the dirt that gets trapped in your pores throughout the day (as well as any makeup you haven't washed off your skin) to leave your skin extremely refreshed and clean. It's an excellent detoxing foam and I've found it cleans my skin more than my makeup removing wipes do.
I recommend designating one evening a week to your "me time" to treat yourself and your body to a cleanse whether it includes a hair mask, facial mask, exfoliation, massage, manicure or pedicure, be sure to treat yourself. Your skin and self will thank you!
