My favorite time to mask is when I’m cleaning – it’s all about the multi-tasking when you’re a mom, am I right? I typically mask 2-3 times a week. Almost always on Sundays and then I usually clean on Friday mornings so I typically wear a mask then too. I have a lot, lot lot of favorite masks. When I did my big bathroom organizing overhaul I tossed a ton that were old to make room for some new (like this PUMPKIN Mask from Summer Fridays I’m dying to try next). So here are a few of my favorites to indulge with – I love the idea of gifting a new mom a mask. It’s a little self-care treat you can easily sneak into your day and will make you look like a million bucks after, even if you don’t feel like it.
Juice Beauty Green Apple Pregnancy Peel: Still one of my very favorites! I’m now using the regular strength one since I’m not pregnant anymore but have a little left of the pregnancy version so I alternate. This is a great mask to use before you apply makeup for an event, date night or photos. It just makes your skin really glow!
Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask: This is one of those products you don’t want to overuse because you’re scared you’ll run out. I simply LOVE this mask. It’s like a blast of hydration to tired, sad skin. I wore it on the airplane when I flew this summer, I put it on after I do an exfoliating or clarifying mask, and I often will put it on and sleep with it. When your skin is really dry (like after being in the sun) it just soaks right in.
Pixi Glow-02 Oxygen Mask: This is a quick, easy mask that is best for mornings. It quickly perks up tired skin and creates a great base for makeup – making it ideal to use before you want to look your best!
Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks: My favorite for de-puffing tired eyes! These little gold babies are a savior and I most definitely will be wearing them non-stop for my best friend’s wedding next weekend!
Origins Retexturizing Mask With Rose Clay: There aren’t a ton of clarifying masks that I love as most leave my skin feeling so depleted of moisture – not what I’m typically going for when I do a mask. This Origins mask is an exception – I will sometimes follow it with a hydrating mask but you don’t even need to. It does a great job of gently exfoliating and clarifying skin without drying it out.
