BEST CALLYSSEE FACE MASKS FOR SUMMER
Bring on the bubbly! This luxurious oxygen-charged liquid mask bubbles up as you apply it to your face, giving the skin a slight tingle that tells you the pressurized stream of oxygen is starting to work to deliver powerful active ingredients to your skin. It’s great for that squeaky clean feeling when the summer heat is making your skin feel dull and clogged.
Some of the star ingredients in this mask include Retinyl Palmitate, known for its tiny molecular structure that penetrates outer layers of skin and works to repair collagen and elastin; while Glutamic Acid is known to pull water from the air to the tissue to restore moisture balance in skin. Anti-aging ingredient Pumpkin Seed Extract, which is loaded with vitamin E, zinc, omega 3- and 6- fatty acids along with antioxidants helps skin feel hydrated, and provides youthful appearance. Rounding out this skin repair powerhouse is the ingredient of the moment, Sea Buckthorn Oil, known for healing and rejuvenating and Coffea Arabic (Organic Green Coffee) Extract, our star ingredient which is known to be packed with antioxidants.
Doing a weekly clay or mud-based mask can help clean out the pores by drawing excess sebum out of the pores and also gently exfoliating the skin, helping reveal a glowing complexion. We love the Magical Beans Magnetic Mud Mask for this very reason - not only is it known to help with oily and blemish-prone skin - it will also leave your skin looking soft and glowy!
This deep detox mud mask has a nutrient-rich formula to refine, nourish and soften skin, so while you cleanse and purify, its active ingredients also work to firm and smooth the your appearance. Organic Coffee Arabica Extract works to diminish the look of dark and sun spots, wrinkles, dry skin, and discoloration; so skin looks brighter and more even-toned. Instead of feeling too tight or too dry, skin is surrounded by layers of softening ingredients including Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, meaning skin both looks and feels touchable.
This is the one hot thing in the summer you won’t want to avoid. If you need to soothe dull or tired skin, this mask is an absolute must-have for your skincare routine.
Harnessing the power of Hungarian Thermal Water, botanicals, and modern technologies known to nourish and restore the skin's appearance, this self-heating mask not only feels great but re-energizes tired, dull skin.
Powerful ingredients such as Kaolin Clay and Zeolite draw out impurities from the skin, while Zinc Oxide then works together with Coffea Arabica (Organic Green Coffee) Seed Extract to soothe skin and tackle the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration. Once applied, you'll feel a warming sensation that'll let you know it working, and is the perfect addition to any spa day at-home routine!
You can’t forget about the skin under your eyes this summer! Whether you’ve had too much to drink the night before, stayed out all night, or wake up feeling puffy, these under-eye masks are a lifesaver to revive tired eyes. We love putting them in the fridge so they’re extra cool on a hot summer day to depuff and soothe our delicate under-eye area. Plus, they’re so lightweight you’ll forget you’re even wearing them.
Infused with Coffea Arabica (Organic Green Coffee Extract) and Green Tea Extract, an ingredient known for its antioxidant-rich properties, the under-eye masks help diminish the appearance of dark circles and puffiness. Finally, Aloe Vera Leaf Extract and Hyaluronic Acid helps soothe and plump up the skin’s appearance. Like we said, these are a lifesaver!
BEST DIY FACE MASKS
In a pinch and need to do a face mask but don’t have one on hand? Luckily, lots of ingredients you can find in your kitchen can work wonders as a face mask. Below, we include details on our favorite easy-to-make, DIY face masks for common skin concerns in the summertime.
Yogurt Honey + Turmeric Mask For Uneven Skin Tone
Rich in lactic acid, yogurt helps exfoliate dead skin cells, while honey and turmeric serve as anti-inflammatory agents to brighten an uneven skin tone. And since yogurt is stored in the fridge, it will have a cooling effect on your face.
To make: Combine one tablespoon each of turmeric, yogurt, and honey. Mix into a paste and apply to the skin, leaving it on for no more than ten minutes to avoid staining the skin.
Avocado Banana and Honey Mask for Dry and Dehydrated Skin
Anti-inflammatory honey combines with hydrating banana and avocado which is rich in healthy fats and oils, giving your skin a glowy, soothed appearance. Plus, these ingredients are usually in everyone’s kitchen, so this is the easiest mask to whip up in a flash!
To make: You’ll need one banana, one avocado, and one tablespoon of honey. Mash the banana and avocado, and then mix together. Add in a tablespoon of honey and mix again until fully incorporated. Apply the mask onto clean skin using fingertips and leave for at least 10 minutes, if not longer for dehydrated skin. Wash off with warm water.
