3 Face Treatments For The Skincare Junkie, Because We All Need A Little Glow Up After This Year

2020 has certainly been the year of face masks - in more ways than one. Due to the constant wearing of my face mask that helps prevent getting COVID-19, I've noticed an increasing need to find face masks to add to my skincare routine so that I can undo the breakouts being caused by the medical masks. I have a membership with IPSY, a brand that allows you to customize your beauty needs and sends you products on a monthly basis. With that being said, I decided to make skincare a priority when choosing items for my monthly bag. Though I was hesitant at first, I ended up being very pleased with the results of the following skincare masks.

1. GENERATION SKIN Urban Defence Purifying Pink Australian Clay Mask - $30

Generation Skin's Pink Clay Mask has been one of my go-to products throughout the year. It includes Vitamins A and C, and works hard to cleanse dirt that is stuck beneath the pores. In my opinion, this is a relatively mild mask that works especially well on combination skin types (like myself). It does not dry out my cheeks, and it pulls dirt and oil from my t-zone effectively. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a simple mask with multiple benefits that can be used at various times throughout the week.

2. MUDMASKY Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask - $70

MUDMASKY's Purifying Recovery Mask is one of my favorite finds of 2020 by far. In my opinion, this mask does it all. It combines the benefits of being pore refining, hydrating, and anti-aging, all while brightening and smoothing skin. I rely on this mask to help remove dirt and oil from my pores after a long day of wearing a mask - especially if I am also wearing makeup. In comparison to other masks that I have tried, I really do feel like the Purifying Recovery Mask does a notable job of hydrating my skin. I never notice dryness after using it, and it serves as an exfoliant to any old skin on the face. Of course, IPSY only offers customers sample sized products in their bags, but I loved my sample so much that I went on to buy the large bottle. Though it is on the more expensive side, I truly feel that it is worth the splurge - especially considering the fact that a little goes a long way. All in all, I would recommend this product to anyone that is willing to listen.

3. GEORGETTE KLINGER Collagen & Elastin Mask - $32

Last - but certainly not least - we have the Collagen & Elastin Mask by Georgette Klinger. As you can see from the bottle, this product is very versatile because it works on almost all skin types. Collagen and elastin work to keep skin looking soft and supple, while lavender and avocado oils work to fight dryness. As a person with combination skin, I found this product to work very well for me. It struck a perfect balance of hydration and detoxing, and its lightweight texture made it breathable and comfortable to apply. I will say that this product has not been my go-to in terms of fighting an exceptionally bad breakout, but rather a nice pick-me-up for when my skin is looking clear. I would recommend this product to those with mild or infrequent breakouts, as well as to anyone who wants to add a bit of glow to their skincare routine.

Any of these masks would be the perfect gift for the skincare junkie in your life, but don't just stop there. If you're looking to show yourself a little love this holiday season, start by purchasing one of these masks.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
