4 Reasons Why I Mask (And You Should Too)

Hey there, gal pals! It's been a little quiet on my end of the screen but only because I'm working on so many exciting projects that I'll be sharing very soon. Today, I'm coming back to share a few reasons why I like to incorporate masks into my daily/weekly skincare routine and why you should be incorporating them into your skincare routine as well. I only began a strong skincare routine about five or six years ago, when my skin was probably at it's worst. I had tried out a new foundation that everyone was raving about and got the worst reaction. That's when I implemented the works, everything from cleansing water/cleansing oil to remove make-up, face wash with matching toner, and both day and night creams to follow up. Every few days, I would (and still do) use a facial mask which has helped my skin tremendously! I love how many variations of masks there are and for every skin type too! Nügg makes so many great ones that are packaged in single serve pods which makes them incredibly easy to use. Below, I'm sharing 4 main reasons why I mask and why I believe you should incorporate masking into your beauty routine as well.

01. Rejuvenate and refresh skin after a long day of wearing makeup. After an eight hour day with a full face of make-up I always come home with one thing in mind, all I want to do is take all that make-up off. By the end of the day, my skin feels like it needs to breathe a little and to be quite honest it doesn't look the same as it had eight hours prior. After getting home and cleansing my skin, I like to reach for Nügg's Deep Cleansing face mask which always gives me an ultra-clean shine free look. It leaves my skin feeling extra clean, without feeling tight or dry, and ready for a wardrobe change into my pjs. 

02. Renew and restore skin to combat fall and winter dryness. Fall and winter will always have a special place in my heart. I love all the festivities that come along with both seasons. The leaves begin to change colors, coats and scarves make their way out of the closet, and a chill is felt in the air. The only problem I have during these colder months is that sometimes my skin doesn't reciprocate that same appreciation for fall and winter and becomes a little sensitive and dry. To combat that, I like to use Nügg's Soothing face mask with shea butter and chamomile extract to soothe, balance, and hydrate my sensitive skin. My face instantly feels refreshed and moisturized, no dryness here!

03. Soften and smooth skin before make-up for an important day. This is one of my secrets for a great make-up day. I've always believed that having healthy, clean skin as a base for make-up truly allows the beauty products applied on the skin to shine. The cosmetics sit better on the skin when you skin is soft and smooth, which enhances natural beauty. When my skin feels dull and dry before a big day, I like to reach for Nügg's Exfoliating face mask. It gently removes that pesky layer of dry skin with a gentle blend of jojoba seeds to reveal smooth and clear skin, ready for anything that comes my way that big day!

04. Relax and have some me-time by pampering with a de-stress mask. Every so often, staying home on the couch with a cup of tea and Gilmore Girls on repeat on Netflix is all this girl wants to do. Taking some me-time for a little rest & relaxation is often well needed and well deserved. I like to take this time to take a little non-guilt stroll through Instagram and catch up with all my Insta-besties, drink a cup of hot tea in a cute mug, give myself a fresh mani, and apply Nügg's De-Stress face mask on my skin. It's the perfect end of the week recharge that makes all the difference.

It's no secret that we can all benefit from using face masks. Incorporating them into our daily/weekly beauty routines can help solve most of our skin issues. Taking care of myself has always been a priority so working out constantly, eating healthy, drinking lots of water, and having a strong skin care routine are all so important to me. I know I always feel better when my skin is healthy and bright. Do you like to incorporate face masks often in your skin care routine? Let me know down below.

Thank you so much for taking a moment of your day to stop by. See you back here bright and early on Friday morning for a brand new post.

Happy Wednesday,
