If you’re like me, you committed a few skincare sins over the holidays. I can’t believe I’m admitting this, but I was so tired for two nights, I slept with a little makeup on. I was rushing around with my Christmas plans so much, that I kind of forgot to take care of myself — but mainly my skin. No worries though, I’m back on it. Maybe your skin is a little congested as a result of the holidays too, so I wanted to share these great new purifying masks with you!
This contains activated Binchotan charcoal along with sulfur to zap excess oil and promote cell turnover for brighter skin. Great for detoxing, but excellent for exfoliation too! $46, dermalogica.com
We love this one because the first ingredient is aloe — which means this multi-tasking charcoal mask is less drying. It also contains kaolin clay, pro vitamin B5, and green tea extract. This was the only charcoal mask of the bunch that didn’t make my face feel too tight after using. (A little tightness after clay or charcoal masks can be normal, though!) $19.50, dermae.com [Read more…]
