Masks: Not Just For Winter

Fresh Rose Face Mask & Perricone MD Chloro Plasma

Am I the only one who feels like I only do face masks in the fall & winter? No? Cozying up on the couch with tea, and a luxurious clay-based, exfoliating, or super-moisturizing face mask feels like a mid-January evening, rather than activity for the sweltering heat of a New York City summer. That being said, while my skin may not be peeling from the winter chill, it still needs some love in the heat!

I’ve been using this little duo over the past few months, and they are just so pleasant in the heat. I’ve liked the Perricone MD Chloro Plasma mask for detoxing my skin after a few days of hard workouts or spending a lot of time outside. Sweat can clog pores, and this green wonder-mask helps prevent any issues from this! It’s clay based, but it feels much lighter than any of the charcoal-based ones I tend to reach for in the winter. It goes on light green, and activates to a darker green, and I just love it.

The real star, though, is the Fresh Rose Face Mask. I don’t love floral-scented things, so I have resisted joining the rose-product party that has started over the past year, but this may just render my conversion. It is a lightweight gel that you can apply almost like moisturizer. It has a slight rose scent, and a refreshing cooling-effect on the skin, making it feel clean and balanced afterward.

Neither one is particularly exfoliating, but since I do have a little bit of a summer tan, I haven’t wanted to over-exfoliate anyway. I do love them though and would highly recommend them to all skin types!

Do you use face masks in the summer months?

    I really like the sound of the Fresh rose face mask as I really love floral scents! I don’t really use face masks too often in summer, but after reading this post I feel like using a face mask now! Just followed your blog it’s lovely and I have just been reading lots of your posts! Great blog 🙂 xx
