Face Masks to Refresh Your Skin
How to Get Full And Soft Hair, a photo step by step
It’s a new year and lots of people are talking about the big changes they are making to better themselves in 2016. Other than eating healthy, working out, and taking more time away from social media, have you thought about your skin?
Winter can be really rough on skin, espcially those of us who suffer with very dry skin. I can’t seem to keep my skin hydrated this year!
I’ve added a weekly (or two times a week) face mask into my routine, and not only does it feel like a bit of pampering, but it usually leaves a lasting effect on my face that is more intense than what day or night cream can do.
I mentioned in December that I was using Clinique’s Even Better Dark Spot Corrector to reverse some dark spots from blemishes around my chin and mouth. This is the kind of product that takes time, so while I haven’t noticed “dramatic” changes, I can tell that those spots have lightened a tiny, tiny bit.
When I saw Clinique makes a brightening mask as a part of that same line, I had to try it. Historically I go for pore cleansing or hydrating masks, but I liked adding this new kind into the mix.
For this mask, I applied like I would apply face cream, but just went a little heavier with product. I let it sit for about 10 minutes, then grabbed a cotton pad to wipe off the excess product. There is no need to rinse your face unless you’d like to.
I was pleasantly surprised at how well this mask moisturized my face despite it being a “brightening” mask. I felt glowy and fresh afterwards. It needs to be used over time to really see results, but I’m happily adding it into the routine to hopefully brighten my face up a bit.
Nordstrom has a great selection of face masks. There is a selector tool that allows you to narrow down a mask based on your skin needs. It’s really easy to use, and also offers a huge range of products at various price points.
Have you heard of “multimasking”? It’s the idea that you can use a few different masks on different parts of your face depending on specific needs. So, for example, if your pores are clogged around your nose, but the rest of your face is really dry, use a deep-cleansing mask around your nose and a hydrating mask on the rest of your face. You don’t ever need to apply a mask to your entire face if there is only a certain place that needs it!
I did my makeup after using this mask and was blown away by the glow it left me with!
