Some days you get up feeling like your finest self, and different days you get up and want you may hit the snooze button for all of eternity. This weekend I used to be feeling extra evil stepsister than Cinderella, so I made a decision to provide myself an at-home spa day. Typically you have simply gotta make your self some cucumber water in a elaborate wine glass, placed on a face masks that makes you appear to be Mrs. Doubtfire, and chill. And that is precisely what I did.
The heroes of this at-home spa day operation had been two masks from Pure Beauty Glow: the Decongestant Sulfur Masque ($30), and the Hydrate Me Masque ($40). For the unfamiliar, Pure Beauty Glow is a skin-care line geared towards acne-prone pores and skin created by aesthetician Sylvia Brownlee, who additionally owns a spa in Ohio by the identical title. For these of us who cannot get to her IRL, she created the model as a approach to obtain spa high quality outcomes at house, and I am so grateful she did.
I’ve struggled with pimples for years now, so discovering merchandise particularly geared towards combating breakouts at all times pique my curiosity. The truth is, I had two massive zits that seemingly appeared in a single day on the precise aspect of my face, so I made a decision to start out there.
The Decongestant Sulfur Masque incorporates — you guessed it — sulfur, which dries up the blemish, plus bentonite and kaolin clay to soak up extra oil. I’ve tried clay masks up to now, however I usually keep away from them as a result of they go away my pores and skin feeling tight and dry. Nonetheless, determined occasions name for brand new measures. After making use of onto my clear pores and skin, letting it sit for 10 minutes, and rinsing with heat water, my face felt something however dry. This masks did a fantastic job of cleaning my pores with out stripping my pores and skin of its pure oils, leaving it feeling delicate and supple afterward. One of the best half? My pimples had been already beginning to look much less crimson and offended.
My subsequent step was the Hydrate Me Masque, which is really helpful for all pores and skin sorts. It combines aloe vera (to assuage), hyaluronic acid (to hydrate), and inexperienced tea extract’s antioxidant advantages (to focus on dullness). I utilized to my as soon as once more clear, dry pores and skin and let it sit. The delicate jelly-like texture had an on the spot soothing impact. I grabbed a ebook, sat again, and let the masks do its magic. After 30 minutes, I rinsed it off with cool water, and was instantly impressed with the outcomes. It did not go away my pores and skin feeling greasy or sticky, however as a substitute delicate to the contact.
I’ve used each masks twice extra since my impromptu spa day and I am going to positively proceed utilizing them weekly. The Hydrate Me Masque may even make a fantastic vacation present for my mother, who additionally struggles with tremendous dry pores and skin. (Here is hoping she does not learn this earlier than then.)
