Ohhh yesterday hurt… After a great time celebrating Christmas and the New Year with family and friends reentry was a bitter pill to swallow. It is nice to get back into a routine but I’m already counting down the days till Spring Break ..82 days to be exact.
However my skin is in desperate need for rehydration. After a couple of weeks of too much indulgence and not enough sleep my skin looks like a steam roller ran over me. (I know the body needs some resetting too but this week is all about the skin).
Particularly I’m in desperate need of hydration. I found this Face Mask by Lancome which helps add hydration while I sleep. Lancome Energie de Vie Night Mask is an instant refresh. You can use this Lancome product by applying a thin layer on clean skin and leave on overnight. For when you need that little “extra” treat: Apply a generous layer on clean skin and keep on for 10 minutes. Use 2-3 times a week (or more if your skin is screaming for moisture)
GLAMGLOW Thirsty Mud Hydrating Treatment A non-drying hydration mask which delivers instant, extreme moisture. Use two to three times per week or when needed. Easy to use, simply apply an even layer to clean, dry skin. Like the Lancome mask you can use GLAMGLOW during the day for 10 to 20 minutes. Wipe off with a tissue and any remaining product massage into your skin. For nighttime, leave on overnight and your skin will be rehydrated. The idea I love the most, is to use when you are flying. Apply at the beginning of the flight and leave on during the flight. Voila, walk off the plane with refreshed skin.
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream (FAB) A rich whipped cream that hydrates deep down with exceptional penetration. With the help of ingredients such as oatmeal, shea butter, and eucalyptus, FAB Ultra Repair Cream provides immediate relief and visible improvement for distressed skin and eczema. FAB Ultra Repair Cream can be used all over the body too. It’s gentle, doesn’t leave a greasy feeling and is great under makeup. My one suggestion would be leave a little time between the cream and your makeup application or your makeup will slide off.
L’Oreal Detox and Brighten Charcoal Clay Mask. When you think of clay masks you think of drying out. Not with L’Oreal clay masks. This creamy, non-drying formula leaves skin feeling clean and velvety. Your skin will be rejuvenated and radiant. Apply an even layer to clean dry skin, avoiding eye and lip area. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes then remove with water. For best results use 3 times a week.
So there you go, four masks for your parched skin, after three applications your skin will be rejuvenated and ready to hit the town again nice and dewey.
I’m excited about the new year and all it has to bring. As Caroline said the other day let’s bring it on! Just hydrate my skin before we go any further.
