Masking is a huge part of my skincare ritual. Every time I see that my skin looks dull or dehydrated, or when my pores are clogged, I turn to my mask arsenal for help. Here is a list of my favorite ones.
I joined the Summer Fridays club the minute the first product was released.
My first pick was Summer Fridays Jet Leg Mask. So many of you have asked if it was really worth it. It took me a second to get a straight answer. I use it every time I travel, because skin gets extra dehydrated when you are in the sky. I really trust Jet Leg Mask for keeping me hydrated, and it’s great at repairing my skin after a night of drinking. Just one layer of Jet Leg and my skin is back to looking glowy. I also use it under my foundation or when I feel too lazy to apply serums, moisturizers and eye creams…which happens a lot. The best part is that it contains vitamin C and vitamin E. Both are essential for collagen production as well as keeping free radicals at bay. Another amazing ingredient is sodium hyaluronate, which is very powerful when it comes to attracting and holding onto water.
Summer Fridays Overtime Mask: Overtime Mask is what you need when you are looking for a great mask but want a little bit of a scrubbier version. Apricot seed powder is included to promote the removal of damaged skin cells, which is a must if you are trying to keep your skin healthy and clear. Beta carotene is responsible for protecting your skin from sun damage, as well as treating conditions such as dry skin and eczema. Pumpkin contains antioxidants vitamin A and vitamin C to help boost collagen production and prevent signs of aging. Personally, what I love most about it is how it makes my skin feel cleaner, brighter, softer and more refreshed. That’s what I’m talking about when I say it gives me that “just got a facial” look.
Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial: If I ever spend $80 on another skincare product, it would be this mask. I will never shut up about this one, and my friends will confirm. Whether I have a night out or a date, baby facial steps right in to make sure my skin looks its best. That means a brighter tone, clearer pores and smoother texture. Every time I remove this mask, it feels like layers of dead skin and buildup are removed along with it. It really is one of those “instant results” products. I don’t think there is a better way of describing it other than saying: It’s absolutely worth every penny.
Lip Mask: Last but not least, Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. I couldn’t wait to finally get my hands on it. My lips were instantly softer and smoother after the first try. I love to use it as lip balm, or whenever I want to add some gloss to my lips before a night out.
