Try this hydrating face mask to calm down your stressed-out skin
Fix your dry face
Mornings are the best. Coffee, a fresh face, to-do list created, energy. Not so much as the after lunch slide creeps into the end of the day. It’s like my skin has an anxiety attack at 3pm. It’s not pretty. My face looks and feels stressed — so, I’ve been on the hunt for beauty products that can keep my face as dewey in the afternoon as it is in the morning. Hello, hydrating face mask. Have you ever used one? I got one from Ipsy, tried it, and now am hooked.
If I can find non-toxic, and natural beauty products that work, I’m all for making the safer choices. The Acai Berry Calming Mask is a natural beauty products with ingredients that score low on the EWG scale, which rates beauty products based on the harmful ingredients included. (note: I don’t think this is the end-all, be-all test as a lot of products are outdated or missing, but it’s a good resource). This mask worked wonders on my face. I couldn’t keep my hands off my skin the next day because it felt so smooth and soft. Other products in this category: all Beautycounter makeup (the BEST) + Waleda skin food.

Immediately, the coolness on my face made me calm, relaxed, and happy. Putting this paper mask on your face is as calming as a late night DJ’s voice. Ahhh… relax. Happy face.
I had a whole new face for days – my skin finally felt like it wasn’t totally zapped and dried out. The mask worked wonders.
