Summer is here, and our skin is feeling it. Even though we’ve practiced safe ways to tan and pampered our skin with light therapy, we still need to make sure our skin stays healthy and hydrated. Given the extra sun exposure, it’s important to use products that combat dryness and soothe skin. This way we’ll keep the glow that we’ve worked on at home during quarantine going strong (along with our continued use of moisturizer and our daily sunscreen applications, of course). The answer? Nourishing green masks.
Ahead, we’re highlighting two of our favorite options to add to your summer skincare routine.
Guac Star Mask
The Guac Star Soothing Avocado Mask is gentle enough to use daily and is the perfect calming product to relax our skin after spending a day in the sun. The creamy avocado butter works as an instant (and natural) pick-me-up, ensuring that our faces are refreshed, protected, and moisturized. The calming properties found in the mask are from green tea extract, which reduces redness and inflammation. The pomegranate, goji fruit, and coffee seed elements help to improve our skin’s texture. Add this nourishing green treatment to your skincare lineup to radiate and glow all summer long.
How to use: Apply a thin layer, let dry, and rinse with cool water. Follow our pro tip, and keep the mask in the fridge for a cooling effect.
Clean Greens Face Mask
Feeling bogged down by blackheads and buildup (most likely caused by the combination of SPF and sweat) or an overall lack of luster from being in the sun? Sounds like it’s time for the ultimate skin smoothie. Use this powder-to-gel formula with chlorella, spirulina, and mango juice to help nourish the skin and dissolve impurities.
How to use: Add a few drops of water so it turns into a gel-like paste. Use this bowl and brush to apply—self-care at its finest. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and rinse off to reveal healthy, glowing skin. Finish with a hydrating serum or night cream.
