Read up on some of the most popular types of skin care products of the moment and pick one that suits your needs to start using on your vacation day.
1. Clay Mask
Ready to hop on the clay mask bandwagon? There’s never been a better time to do so! Here are three options to choose from, depending on the specific skin issues you’d like to address.
Day after day, dead skin cells can accumulate on the surface of your skin, leaving your skin feeling rough. The L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Treatment Mask is formulated with three kinds of clay and enhanced with red algae extract to help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and exfoliate dead skin cells. Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes, then remove with water in circular motions to exfoliate.
Over time, harsh environmental factors like pollution and debris can damage skin, leaving your complexion looking dull and tired. The L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Treatment Mask is formulated with three kinds of clay and enhanced with charcoal to help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and pollution and reduce the look of dull skin. To use, apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, and leave the mask on for 10 to 15 minutes, then remove with water.
Impurities, makeup, and excess oils can build up on your skin day after day, leaving your complexion looking extra oily. The L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Treatment Mask is formulated with three kinds of clay and enhanced with eucalyptus leaf extract to help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and reduce the look of excess shine. After cleansing, apply a thin, even layer of the mask to dry skin, then leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse it off with water.
2. Peel Pads
One of our favorite skin care products of the moment is the peel pad. Dull, uneven tone can make your skin look older. And as your skin’s natural ability to shed surface dead skin cells declines with age, dark spots and uneven tone can become increasingly more visible, leaving it looking older and duller.
The L'Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Daily Brightening Peel Pads are formulated with glycolic acid to help exfoliate and reduce the look of uneven skin tone. Plus, the multi-ply texture pads physically resurface dead skin cells. To use, smooth a pad gently over your cleansed face at night. Your skin will immediately look brighter, while your tone will look more even over time with continued use. (Just one quick note: The use of an alpha hydroxy acid like glycolic acid can leave your skin more sensitive to sunlight, so be sure to put on a broad-spectrum SPF in the morning before heading outside.)
3. Self-Tanner Towelettes
Want your co-workers to think you were just on a beach vacation? You can get a faux golden glow using self-tanner towelettes, like the L'Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze™ Towelettes for Body, which are quick and convenient and go on streak-free. (You can use the towelettes daily until you’ve achieved your desired level of color and then one to two times a week to maintain the results. Follow the below instructions on how to use them.
Step 1: Cleanse and exfoliate your skin.
Step 2: Smooth a towelette all over your body, unfolding as needed.
Step 3: Use sparingly around your ankles, knees, and elbows.
Step 4: Wash your hands thoroughly once you’re done.
Step 5: Time to wait! Let your skin dry before putting on your clothes.
Enjoy your day off!
