IT’S TIME TO UPDATE
Did you know Priceline sells a face mask every 20 seconds? Crazy, right? Whether you like the idea of a fast facial or some at-home self-care, it’s safe to say the mania around masking isn’t going away any time soon.
The number of products can be overwhelming, especially when trying to figure out which mask is right for your skin. But applying a mask correctly is just as important and there are a few rules you should follow to get the best results.
Before you tear open the sachet or open the jar, prep your skin to absorb all the active ingredients by cleansing and exfoliating.
Similarly, a light film that just sits on top of your skin won’t penetrate deep into the layers and, therefore, won’t be as effective – work the product into your skin by massaging it in with your fingers or a brush.
You can also tailor the kind of treatment to your skin type by using techniques like layering and multi-masking. If you buy one beauty product this month, make it this luxurious oil-in-serum that works to ‘reset’ your skin as you sleep. A combination of marjoram and paracress plant extracts help activate dormant gene-expression functions and relax muscle tension, while powerhouse antioxidant Immortelle oil extract works to create firmer, smoother skin.
