For a working professional in the beauty industry in both the editorial media and makeup artisty sectors, a bad skin day is totally unfavorable.
After spending time away from home in Palm Springs for a much needed mini-vacation with family and a recent windy night at the beach, my skin is understandably feeling out of sync. 105 degree heat and gusty dry air are a couple rare factors that bring my normally fresh skin into a not so pleasant appearances. Currently, my complexion has been suffering from dehydration and a couple small breakouts.
I’ve fallen in love with two life-changing face masks that literally improve the skin’s appearance overnight: Josh Rosebrook Cacao Antioxidant Face Mask and Elemis Lavender Herbal Face Mask.
When used once or twice a week, these two powerful products reverse the signs of problematic skin without any type of irritation.
Josh Rosebrook Cacao Antioxidant Face Mask is a rather new discovery in my skincare arsenal. Made with a happy skin formula of potent antioxidants and organic ingredients it is a perfect addition to my beauty routine. It purifies and refines the skin’s texture while offering a youthful, refreshed comfortably firm look that brings instant gratification especially after a bad skin day. Apply all over clean skin, let the mask work it’s magic for 30-45 minutes and rinse off! The post face mask result is a noticeably healthy glow to the complexion.
Elemis Lavender Herbal Face Mask is a great treat for skin needing a quick turnaround from breakouts, oily spells and other unmentionable clogged pore problems. The spa-like aromas of rosemary, lavender and thyme essential oils make for an enjoyable at home facial via a creamy supple face mask. For sensitive noses, I do have to mention the natural scent is a bit intense during the first application but the results are worth enduring the vibrant lavender sensorial experience.
As far as physical coverage, the foundation I reach for when my skin needs some extra love is Becca Cosmetics Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme. The formula is the idea texture and pigmented beautifully to camouflage skin without a heavy feeling heavy. Testing out foundations is something I often do to update my own beauty routine for myself and also my kit for personal clients. What I love most about this particular Becca Cosmetics Foundation is that the color range is flexible and the fluid creates a gorgeous canvas that makes for a flawless skin every time.
