It’s that time of year again! After the year that has been, I think we are all amazed that it is finally coming to an end. With it, comes the hustle, bustle and craziness of end-of-year celebrations. Getting dressed up, donning those high heels, gorging on good food and wine… it’s no wonder everyone always feels extra festive during the festive season. And so we should! This year especially, we all deserve to celebrate in style as we say goodbye to the year that was (and good riddance) and hello to a fresh start in 2021. But, we don’t want you to wake up next year with dry, unloved, overworked skin. We get it, we have all been there. It’s so easy to forget to look after our skin in between the parties, the copious amounts of make-up and the late nights. It’s often the last thing on your mind. Yet, with a little TLC over the holiday period, you will reap all the benefits that come with face masks. With these tips, you will be left glowing!
What Are Face Masks?
Are you new to the face masks world? Welcome! They are the perfect way to nourish your skin, remove excess oils and help to improve the appearance of your pores. So many benefits from one simple mask – who would have thought. They achieve all of this while offering you a relaxing, spa-like treatment from the comfort of your home. You can even host a girls’ night in and sip away on a glass of sparkling while working wonders on your skin. It’s a win-win!
Benefits Of Face Masks
Still on the fence about whether or not you have the time to work a face mask into your routine? We are going to turn that on its head and have you rushing out to indulge in one right now. Beauty face masks aren’t just an added luxury to your normal skincare routine, they are a necessity. Many people mistakenly throw them into the pamper pile, only to be accessed if you have the time, funds, inclination or desire to carry one out. In actual fact, these masks do so much for your skin.
Relaxation: this one is important, which is why it’s our number one benefit. We are all so busy in our day-to-day lives. So busy, that even the thought of pausing for a little skincare indulgence can seem too much. Popping on a mask isn’t just about the how the ingredients will help your skin, it’s also about combating that stress to allow your body to enter a state of total relaxation. You can close your eyes, destress and let your skin soak in the goodness. Just by alleviating this stress you are doing wonders for you skin.
Cleansing: everyday we are exposing our skin to the elements, accumulating dirt, dead skin and other debris. Rinsing our face each day isn’t enough to combat this. Our pores end up blocked and bacteria can develop deep within them and build up over time. A regular face mask will help to keep those pores unclogged, so you don’t experience the inevitable breakout that can wreak havoc on your skin.
