Being selfie-ready at all times is their job, so fitting in spa time may be minimal due to their maximalist schedules. Bloggers have turned to at-home facials, masks and treatments to keep themselves photo-ready when they need it most. Here are the masks some beauty bloggers are adding to their regimen for spa-like results at home.
Activated charcoal in the Detox Mask acts as a magnet to draw out grime from your pores, while kaolin clay soaks up oil and impurities. Think of it as a vacuum for your skin that whisks away all the dirt and pollutants that you may not immediately see until they stimulate a breakout. “This mask definitely left my skin feeling clean and soft, and best of all, breakout-free,” said Blaire of PeachesInAPod.com.
Blaire is also a fan of the Glow Bamboo Brightening Mask. “After using this mask, my makeup looked flawless!” said Blaire. Glow utilizes bamboo extract to exfoliate the skin, improving texture and allowing the brightening ingredients to work their magic on a better surface instead of rough, dry, hard-to-penetrate skin. The result is reduced discoloration and a brighter, more luminous appearance. “I could not believe the improved texture of my skin after using this mask,” Blaire said. “If you are going to start out with one of these masks, this is the one I recommend.”
Serein Wu of the YouTube channel Dress Yourself Happy uses the Restore Moisture-Rich Mask as an early morning pick-me-up. If there was such a thing as vitamin water for your skin this would be it. The Restore Mask has a cocktail of vitamins and essential fatty acids that moisturize the skin and improve the lipid barrier to lock in moisture for smoother, plumper and more hydrated skin. “I like to use it during the day if I wake up feeling really dry,” Serein said. “It's just a really nice, comfortable cream. You can use it as a sleep mask if you wanted to, but I just apply it for a quick hydrating treatment.”+
Local influencers learned first-hand the beauty of layering masks at the COSMEDIX Mask + Mingle event held at the COSMEDIX headquarters. Multi-masking is the art of applying different masks to different parts of your face or using one mask, washing it off and then using another (or two!) to get the results you want. It is the best anytime fix in lieu of a spa treatment that allows you to spot treat problem areas and refresh the rest. Influencers tested the Detox, Restore and Glow masks and customized their application based on their skin needs, such as applying Detox to their t-zone and Restore to the rest of their face and following that mask duo with a full-face Glow Mask. “Never had my skin felt so soft!” said Cat of CatGalletti.com. The next day some of our guests were still glowing. Molly of @MissMollyMoon said, “My skin is feeling super hydrated and healthy after a little multi-masking and mingling yesterday. I’ve gotta say I'm already loving these new masks from COSMEDIX.”
