Hydrating Face Masks

DSC_0039

Winter is most certainly in full swing in Philadelphia. The humidity level is extremely low and the winds are relentless! By the time I get to work I feel like a box of raisins that a 3 year old left out on their blacktop driveway in Arizona in summer for 3 weeks. Imagery my friends. Anyhow, when I get home all I want to do is throw on a soothing face mask! These are my picks!

Clark’s Botanicals Deep Moisture Mask: This doesn’t feel too terribly thick or sticky while still packing in some serious moisture. It’s actually a really gorgeous leave on moisturizer if you are feeling especially dry. It does contain fragrance so for those who are sensitive to that be warned. I haven’t found this to cause any issues whatsoever. It’s a bit on the pricey side but you don’t need much and it really does work!

Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask: This mask is definitely a bit friendlier on the wallet! It is a bit thicker, a more traditional hydrating mask, but I like to leave it on overnight as a treatment. When I wake up my skin is smooth and plump! Like a juicy grape that has not been left out on the blacktop in Arizona for 3 weeks in June.

Let me know your remedies for extremely dehydrated skin down in the comments! I’m sure most of us are suffering from dehydrated skin right now!

    I’ve got insane dry skin and the best thing I’ve ever tried for it is a mixture of sweet almond oil and avocado oil! I slather it all over my face after using an essence that helps it absorb better. It’s the besttttt

      The weather is being really bad lately! One day it’s 50 degrees and then next its like 15 degrees! I say if it’s cold it might as well snow! None of this freezing rain!

    I recently received a few Paula’s Choice products and they were really lovely and I plan to try more from her range. Thank you for introducing the mask, it sounds great and I think my dry skin would appreciate it.

      Her products are consistently pretty good. They’re simple but effective. You’re welcome! I hope you find that it helps your skin!

      The cold weather definitely sucks the life out of skin. You could even just apply it to your dry areas and leave it on overnight. That may work nicely!
