Even though the holidays are a wonderful time of year – filled with family, love, and togetherness – they are also usually filled with stress. The endless to-do lists, hunting for gifts, and not to mention hours lingering over a hot stove preparing holiday feasts can wreak havoc on your skin. A mask can be an easy and reasonably quick way to give your skin a deep cleaning, clear your pores and restore its radiance. These are some of our favorite pore purifying and dirt demolishing masks:
Malin + Goetz Detox Face Mask - This is my go-to mask that I use at least twice a week. Super fast and effective. Apply, wait approximately 5 minutes until the mask starts to oxidize. Remove and marvel at your supremely clean and glowing skin.
Rachel K Radiance Illuminator Mask – Rachel K’s mask uses Lotus flower stem cells, as well as other natural ingredients like aloe vera and shea butter to soothe, moisturize and smooth skin. The hydrogel mask delivery mechanism also locks in moisture while helping to control oil production.
Boscia Luminizing Black Mask – I love a good peel-off mask – for some reason they remind me of when I was a child. Anyway, this one dries quickly and once removed reveals shrunken pores and brighter, firmer skim.
Origins Clear Improvement Mask – The charcoal in this mask helps it to effectively remove the dirt and debris that get trapped in pores.
AZTEC Indian Healing Clay Mask – As we said in a prior post, this is the master cleanse of masks. The apple cider vinegar and Aztec clay mixture forms a paste that hardens and deep cleans the skin. Those with sensitive skin may want to use this mask less frequently. Great for a bi-monthly skin “reset”.
Grand Central Beauty S.M.A.R.T. Skin Perfecting Mask – This mask is terrific for making sure you look your absolute best before a special occasion. It’s results last for at least 24 hours. After using it once, my skin was well-hydrated, smoother, and radiant.
