Quick At-Home “Facials”
Imagine having a mini rejuvenating facial when you shower:That’s the idea behind the new face cleansers, scrubs, and masks meant to be used while you wash up. Besides saving time (no sitting around waiting for a mask to soak in or messy removal), these fuss-free formulas can actually be more effective than traditional ones. “Skin’s surface cells are softened by the dampness and the warmth of the shower, so the ingredients penetrate more easily,” explains Joshua Zeichner, M.D., a New York City dermatologist. Apply one when you step in, let it work while you shower, then rinse.
