Changing seasons calls for changing skin, and summer sun really gives our fall faces a beating. The heat alone will cause your skin to become massively dehydrated, thus loosing elastin, freshness, and tone. Once the weather cools and beach time is less of a priority it is the best time to lighten age spots, soften rough skin, and to reverse some of the wear and tear that your skin takes during the summer.
Thanks to our mother our obsession with face masks began at early age when she use to paint our friends’ faces at sleepover parties with a cucumber peeling mask. We love a good skin enhancer! Below are LaLaScoop’s best face masks finds or ‘secret weapons’ to reduce dark spots and fine lines while moisturizing, tightening, and hydrating.
Fresh Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy-Boosting Face Mask
This new Fresh Face Mask smells so good you’ll want to eat it. Made of a citrus jam texture of 50% crushed oranges, lemons, and clementines, it is fueled by this vitamin fruit complex and blend of fruit extracts, revitalizing minerals, and vitamins C, E, and B5. You can use this mask three times a week for the ultimate glowing skin. Results are expected even after one use. My boyfriend told me it looked like someone puked on my face, but I would say the glow was worth it!
Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque
This yellowish creamy masque with actual seeds in the mix invigorates skin and brightens appearance in minutes with seed sloughing exfoliation when you rinse it off. The Cranberry Extract is an antioxidant packed superberry rich in resveratrol, and Turmeric Extract is an anti-inflammatory. My skin felt tighter and brighter.
Biologique Recherche Masque VIP 02
This oxygenating and moisturizing “antipollution” treatment restores radiance to stressed, asphyxiated skin. Its formula is rich in moisturizing botanical ingredients and contains the Specific Biologique Recherche Oxygenating Complex which stimulates epidermal regeneration and revitalizes the skin. It is ideal to soothe sunburn and can be left in the refrigerator prior to use and applied in a thick layer to soothe and calm the skin. It is recommended for dull, tired or stressed skin. You know those Parisians know a thing or two about skincare.
GLAMGLOW Youth Mud Tinglexfoliate Treatment
You feel this mask instantly working with the tingling tightening feeling. The dirt almost feels like its being sucked out of your pores. We remember meeting the owners at a networking event when they first launched and knew they were on to something big. The gentle resurfacing exfoliation will help your skin glow in just ten minutes. Deigned originally for the entertainment crowd when they needed a quick fix, ingredients like French sea clay leave skin smooth and healthy-looking. A team of hard-working antioxidants (green tea extract, camellia leaf, and cucumber extracts) correct discoloration and evens out texture. Thank you mud mask!
