Top 7 Face Masks To Try for The Best Quarantine Skincare
TREND / 2020-05-20
Waking up to a bunch of zoom meetings lined up and house chores has become the new normal. As bad as we want life to go back to ‘the normal’, quarantining ourselves right now is non-negotiable. Amid the lockdown, how we wish we could wake up to flawlessness every day, don’t we all?. We should, afterall, life is too short to walk around with a dull face. While the rest of the Covid-19 quarantine life requires much effort, the facial skincare part, we can fix easily. No, before you think, spritzing your face with shimmery mists or dabbing on oodles of highlighter isn’t what we’re talking about. We are talking about nourishing your facial skin from within and bringing out a natural, long lasting glow.
Causes like lack of sleep, stress, and age can rob your complexion of its radiance. To transform your skin you need some extra TLC right now, more than ever. The secret to gorgeous glowing skin lies in a luxurious mask. When it comes to selecting some of the best face masks for a lacklustre skin, Firstly try and have a look at what your skin looks like close-up. Then, on the basis of it, opt for products that are formulated for radiance, exfoliation, glow, moisture or deep cleanse. Secondly, the ingredients list runs in order of the quantity in the product's formula. For example, if aloe vera (often listed as 'aloe barbadensis leaf juice') is the first ingredient listed on the label of your soothing face mask, you know it has a very high quantity in the mask's formula. If it's the last ingredient on the list, you know it contains a low quantity of aloe vera. So keep an eye out for the key ingredients and whereabouts they sit on your face mask's label.
