Masks are a wonderful way to take a little bit of time for yourself. It’s self care, as the kids call it these days. There’s something so relaxing about throwing a mask on at the end of the day with a glass of wine and the Bachelorette, if you’re anything like me.
Now that it’s summer, it can be easy to think properly hydrating your skin isn’t as important as it is during the winter. Don’t fall for this!!! It’s still just as important to keep your skin hydrated and plump. You just have to go about it a little bit differently. In winter, when your skin is dry and the winds are blowing, you have to resort to the heavy hitters. During summer, you don’t need the thickest cream you can buy.
Instead, after a long day of relaxing outdoors, try reaching for something a little bit lighter with hyaluronic acid. We love this mask from Dr. Dennis Gross. The two-step mask hydrates skin before sealing in moisture. Or maybe you didn’t put enough sunscreen on, and now you’re a little bit pink. It happens! Don’t beat yourself up about it! Just slap on one of these Aloe Soothing sheet masks from Korean skincare brand Benton. Maybe you’re just feeling like you skin needs a pick me up. Try Summer Fridays’s Jet Lag mask, which was so popular that it sold out immediately during their first launch. Lucky for us, they’ve restocked just in time.
