How do I survive between facials with all my traveling? I depend on a few masks (five, to be exact!) that I use religiously 1-2 times a week (more if I’m flying a lot). The best compliment is when I arrive at a destination after 12 hours on a plane only to have my friends gush over my glowing skin– trust me, no beauty snob should be without them!
1. Arcona Raspberry Resurfacing Peel
Possibly the best mask on the planet! My skin is smoother and softer than any baby’s bum afterwards. One of the best over the counter resurfacing masks. Mark my words, YOU MUST TRY THIS. At Nordstrom for $68.
2. Natura Bisse Diamond Ice Lift
I keep this in the fridge all year long. Anytime I wake up puffy or have a special event to attend, I slick this on my face (blow dry my hair or lie down for 10 minutes) and peel it off to reveal tightened and lifted skin. This is the secret weapon for many A-listers before hitting the red carpet! At Neiman Marcus for $155.
3. Fresh Black Tea Perfecting Mask
This hydrates without rendering skin greasy. It leaves instead a velvety texture that makes for an excellent make up primer. At Sephora for $85.
4. SK II Facial Treatment Mask
I do not leave home without this, literally. On long haul flights overseas I slap this on when the lights go down (freaks out anyone who catches sight of me but my boy doesn’t even blink– so well trained for the beauty snob who snags him as a hubby!) and land with dewy fresh skin. I use this at least once a week, 2-3 times for optimum results. At Nordstrom for $125.
5. Omorovicza Copper Peel
This not only feels like a science project, it gives results as if you stepped out of lab. first scrub with the green Copper gluconate paste followed by a dose of the sodium bicarbonate and lactic acid activator. Your face will fizzle for two minutes (don’t be scared!) after which you’ll be left with an incredibly smooth texture. I also love the individual sizes, great for traveling! At Omorovicza for $150.
What about you, what are your favorite masks?
