Election stuff. Are you as over it as I am? OK, OK… I am stuck somewhere between “anxiously refreshing The Huffington Post roughly 10x a day” and “If you turn on the news I might ACTUALLY kill you with my eyes.”
I’m sure I am not the only one who feels like the last few months have been stress incarnate. I cannot wait for Tuesday to come — and GO — so that we can be OVER all this madness. Amirite?
While we sit and wait and hope and pray and try not to drink all the gluten free beer in the fridge, don’t forget that this is the PERFECT day for a self-love date. Since you’ll inevitably be sitting on the couch biting your nails anyway, you might as well pamper yourself. Here are 5 face masks to help you destress this week:
IF YOUR SKIN NEEDS A SUPER CHARGE:
Then the Pele Mask by Mahalo is for you! Named after the Hawaiian Volcano Goddess Pele, the mask is supercharged by “botox-plant” Hibiscus, anti-inflammatory Turmeric, collagen-boosting Vitamin C, anti-aging Neem leaf, oxygenating Cayenne, sebum-balancing Witch Hazel, wrinkle-fading Guava, acne-fighting Holy Basil, toxin-magnet Volcanic Ash Clay and bacteria-absorbing Activated Bamboo Charcoal. A concentrated, intelligently detoxifying bioactive mask that transforms problem, tired skin to unveil glowing, paradise-radiant complexion. Activated by water, this astute formula morphs from dull powder to a satin mousse, swelling and sizzling as it brings to life the luxurious botanicals. Perfect for de-stressing your skin as well as your mood.
IF YOU NEED A NEW RITUAL:
If you think this week is the best time for a new skincare and self-love ritual, The Honey Mud is going to be your new best friend! A distinctive union of raw Honey, White Halloysite Clay and aromatic pure plant oils come together to bring you a truly intoxicating and highly addictive cleansing or masking ritual. This amazing cleansing “mud” can be used to clean skin or leave it on for 10-15 mins to use it as a mask. The Honey Mud infuses your skin with active enzymes and nourishment while restoring your optimal hydration and individual rhythm. A unique fresh start feeling!
IF YOU NEED SOME R&R:
There’s nothing quite like the feeling AFTER your votes are in. I know my #1 goal will be to do my Cacao Antioxidant Ritual. These pre-mixed mask is an all-time favorite! Josh Rosebrook’s products were made for your serious R&R days. Your skin will thank you, too! This mask contains excellent organic ingredients for brightening, rejuvenating, detoxifying, toning, tightening, and softening skin. This powerful organic antioxidant mask is the ultimate multi-tasker. I absolutely love the delicious chocolate-y smell and how it instantly leaves skin looking clearer, tighter and brighter.
IF YOU BLEED BLUE:
If you can’t get enough BLUE on Election Day, I have just the mask for you! Indie Lee’s Clearing Mask is a gentle yet effective detoxifying mask. Fruit acids help eliminate dead skin cells while plant extracts nourish and protect the skin. Purify clogged pores and relieve congested skin with organic healing ingredients like seaweed, chamomile, camphor extract and bentonite clay. This mask is one of my favorite ways to both cleanse and rehydrate skin when it’s being fussy or dull. Truly works on sensitive skin like mine.
IF YOU ROCK RED:
Ready to make your skin great again? I have JUST the solution! This cellular repair mask is incredible. Organic ingredients repair, regenerate and fortify damaged or mature skin. Formulated with Raspberries, Blueberries, Blackberries, and Strawberries, this anti-aging mask nourishes and restores vitality. It smells SO amazing you’ll want to eat it… and the ingredients are so pure that you CAN! This mask removes environmental damage while infusing your skin with some great antioxidants and much needed nutrients.
