Detoxing masks

Generally, detoxing is something to do in between seasons. As the external factors are changing (weather, humidity, light), the body may react in an odd way and we can get more tired, and of course the skin reacts differently. Detox can be done eating a cleaner diet than usual (cleanses, raw diets, more super food and immune system boosters, ...) but also by using beauty products that will work directly on the skin. I love to combine both. As I just came back from Tokyo, where my skin felt tired and sensitive, and where I worked at an intense rhythm, I was glad to have these two masks to try on and cope with the lifestyle changes.

 

Glossier

Glossier - Mega Greens Galaxy Pack - 22$ (get 20% off using this link)

I feel like this mask is best when your skin feels sensitive but also a little oily - I usually don't have an oily skin but as I said, after this intense summer my skin is a little different than usual. It contains both clay and aloe to draw out oil and calm the skin. I like that it has also little grains in it so when you wash it off, after applying for about 20mn, it also gently exfoliates the dead cells, great 2-in-1 product. After washing it off, my skin was matte, super soft, and not turning red so easily anymore. The best is to follow with a very good moisturizer (like their Moisturizing Moon Mask for example) to complete the soothing and cocooning effect you want for you skin.

 

 

Bogavia

Bogavia - Detox Mineral face mask - 40$

I really like the texture of this mask, it's watery but still thick at the same time, like a gel. Also its color is almost black and it doesn't really have a scent, which makes it unique. It has more of a soothing and calming effect than a drying one, which is perfect if your skin is not oily but you still need a detox. It also contains aloe (like many of Bogavia's products actually), but also dead sea mud, which has a high concentration of minerals, ideal to regenerate and revitalize the skin while soothing it. I generally prefer to leave this one on a shorter time (about 10mn), because I don't like to feel the skin completely frozen, but it's personal (you can actually leave it on 20mn).
