January is the perfect time for new beginnings, why not make it #maskmonth?
I encourage my clients to use a mask once a week in their home care routine, with so many options to choose from this shouldn’t be a problem.
Awhile back, I realized I was getting lazy about my masking routine. I stocked up on my favorite sheet mask, clay mask and charcoal mask and committed to following my own advice for a month.
I’m loathe to admit it but goofy photos for social media is a great motivator for #maskmonth!
It didn’t take the whole month to see the difference in my skin. After two weeks of consistent masking my face was glowing.
My tips for #maskmonth:
1. Custom blend your masks! When I have a client with combination skin in the studio I add a pump of antioxidant serum to a balancing clay mask for added nourishment. Experiment at home.
2. Five minutes is all you need. 10-15 minutes is great if you have the time but put on a mask and brush your teeth/wash your hair/trim your toenails then rinse.
3. Create a mini-facial at home. Exfoliate then mask, your skin will look amazing! Add eye patches to target the under eye area.
4. Take a goofy photo for social media, get your friends to join the fun of #maskmonth!
