If we’re not intentional, our skin can take a backseat to work, kids, significant others, friends and the day-to-day grind.
Although the notion of self-care if a hot topic right now, it’s easy to brush off as an indulgent, time-sucking afterthought.
It is not. You deserve to look like you don’t have a care in the world — even when you have all the cares.
When I notice the skin on my face looking tired, dull, and worn out, I reach for my Andalou Naturals Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask ($10, amazon.com).
As I approach my 30s, I’ve become more and more invested in the health of my skin. We all know Black doesn’t crack, but it can’t hurt to offer a little assistance in the form of a dedicated skin routine complete with a mask that revives.
It’s a super smooth, creamy formula that goes on seamlessly and leaves your face feeling noticeably refreshed and bright.
When I say noticeably, I do mean you’ll see it almost as soon as you wash your face off. Most of the time when products claim to have immediate results I’m giving a major side eye, but this mask lives up to the hype.
No really, there are glowing reviews (pun intended) on Amazon that back me up on this one.
Made with organic pumpkin, moisturizing manuka honey, vitamin C, and fruit stem cell, you can use this knowing that you’re putting good ingredients on your face.
