Last night was one of those "1 too many glasses of Pinot" nights after which I found myself in my bed, with a pile of clothes and all of my makeup on from the night before. Yes folks, I committed the cardinal sin of skin care and slept with my makeup on! The horror and shame I felt this morning staring at the remnants of last night's smokey eye! Needless to say not only was I in dire need of water, but my skin was in desperate need of some potent therapy.
Time to pull out the big guns.
After a thorough cleanse, I apply the Chantecaille Fruit and Flower Acids Mask to clean skin and leave on for 10 minutes. This mask is a savior for dull, uneven skin. It contains grapefruit and hibiscus flower acids as well as a botanical glycolic acid to gently dissolve dead skin cells and reveal fresh skin. This is my third jar of this stuff and I have about one use left, and will definitely buy another. I rely on it that much!
Next time for the Dynamic Duo. The Sisley Radiant Glow Express Mask and Sisley Express Flower Gel Mask.
The Sisley Radiant Glow Express Mask is a LIFESAVER. This mask is perfect for dull, tired, sallow skin that is also in need of deep cleansing. The red and white clay work to get rid of impurities and deeply cleanse the skin, while the botanical extracts and essential oils work to smooth, and hydrate the skin. Pure genius. This is one product that is worth every single penny and will always be in my skin care regimen. It works after a night of debauchery and also works as a quick prep before a night out. Most traditional clay masks dry out my skin too much, but this cleans the pores without that tight feeling.
I follow this with the Sisley Express Flower Gel Mask. This is a refreshing clear gel mask that plumps and hydrates the skin like nothing else. Or as Sisley says, sheer bliss for dehydrated, lifeless, energy-depleted skin. Yes, please! I slather on a thick layer of this and leave it on all night. There is no need to rinse with this mask. The longer you leave it on, the longer the active ingredients penetrate your skin.
Water, Ibuprofen, greasy food...I'm not saying that this regimen will replace all that after a night of over indulgence, but think of this as your skin hangover cure. Am I the only one who commits the cardinal beauty sin of falling asleep with your makeup on???
