If you’re wondering how to pass the time during quarantine, let us introduce you to the world of face masks. The perfect way to brighten up your day and your skin, face masks are a fun and necessary step to keep your skin glowing, especially during a time of stress. Make an evening of it and mask with your quarantine crew, whether that be in person or via video chat.
There is so much to love about this mask so we’ll just start with the ingredients, which include matcha green tea (more on matcha here), spirulina, lemon peel, lactic and phytic acids, swiss cress sprout extract and Bakuchiol. The mask goes on cool and smells super refreshing. There is a slight tingle that you’ll feel, but not to worry, it’s supposed to happen. It’s the lactic and phytic acids working to exfoliate your skin. It quickly subsides and when you wash off after 10 minutes, skin is clearer and tighter. You can use it as a 10-minute mask or a daily cleanser. Another huge plus is the sustainable packaging. Packaged in a glass jar the actual formula is encased in a removable and recyclable pod, so when you finish, all you need to do is replace the pod.

With so many free streaming workouts, we hope you’re getting your sweat on. If you are, then this mask is a must. It’s designed to prevent post-sweat breakouts and acne, remove excess oils, and unclog pores. We love the fun blue color and the lightly gritty texture that helps to exfoliate while you’re applying it. $54, Freskincare.com. @freskincare
