3 Must-Try Multi-Masking Recipes for Every Winter Woe
When we think of the winter season, we think of cozy nights in, sitting on the couch with a hot beverage in hand and a laundry list of television shows to binge watch. But, while we are busy avoiding the negative effects of the frigid weather outside, the weather inside could be causing our skin just as much—if not, more—discomfort. Not to mention: all of that binge watching could lead to some seriously fatigued-looking skin. Luckily, we stocked up on The Body Shop’s collection of Expert Facial Masks to help us—and our skin—get through the winter season. We share three must-try multi-masking recipes for every winter woe, ahead.
STAYED UP TOO LATE BINGE WATCHING TV SHOWS?
Winter is the perfect excuse to stay put… on your couch with popcorn in one hand and your finger on the remote ready to admit that yes, you are in fact, “still watching.” For cold winter nights when binge watching your new favorite TV show turns into an all-nighter, your fatigued-looking skin could use a little R&R from The Body Shop’s Amazonian Acai Energizing Radiance Mask and Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask.
Enriched with tea leaves, bamboo charcoal, and the brand’s Community Trade tea tree oil, the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask can purify and illuminate areas of the complexion that appear dull and in desperate need of an inner glow. To use in a multi-masking recipe for fatigued-looking skin, apply a thin layer of the mask to dull-looking skin—such as, your forehead and chin—on your complexion.
After you’ve targeted the dull areas, it’s time to move onto the parts of your complexion that need a cup of coffee—or, in this case, an energizing facial mask. Enriched with acai berry, guarana seed extract, and the brand’s Community Trade babassu oil, the antioxidant-rich Amazonian Acai Energizing Radiance Mask can promote brighter, more awake-looking skin that is soft, smooth, and supple to touch.
OVEREXPOSED TO THE WINTER ELEMENTS?
For skin that has been overexposed to the winter elements—i.e. hit hard one too many times with the frigid winter air—and is in desperate need of some hydration, you’ll want to double up on the moisture with The Body Shop’s Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask and British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask.
Enriched with moisture-inducing ingredients—such as, rosehip oil, rose petals, rose essence, and the brand’s Community Trade aloe vera—the British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask can replenish dehydrated skin and leave it feeling soft, soothed, and supple to touch. To use in a multi-masking recipe that targets dry, dehydrated skin that has been overexposed to the elements, simply apply the replenishing face mask to the areas of your complexion that need a boost of hydration—such as, your forehead, cheeks, and chin.
After you’ve replenished, it’s time to nourish! Enriched with soothing and hydrating ingredients—such as, marula oil, olive oil, and honey—the Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask from The Body Shop can target and soothe the ultra dry areas of your complexion that need it most (think: your eye contour and nose). When combined with the brand’s British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask, you’ve got yourself a powerful multi-masking combo that can kick dry winter skin to the curb.
DRYING INDOOR TEMPERATURES?
The weather outside might be frightful—read: causing some serious discomfort to your skin—but, the weather indoors could also be wreaking havoc on your complexion. If patchy or flaky-looking dry skin has gotten the best of you this winter, you might want to consider a multi-masking recipe that can purify and nourish itchy, uncomfortable—not to mention: dull-looking—skin. We recommend giving The Body Shop’s Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask and Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask a try.
Enriched with the brand’s Community Trade marula oil, olive oil, and honey the Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask from The Body Shop is chocked full of hydrating qualities that can soothe uncomfortable winter skin. To combat the negative effects of indoor heating, try using this skin hydrator on the parts of your complexion that need a boost of hydration—i.e. your forehead and nose. The humectant-rich formula can nose only improve the look of ultra dry skin, it can soothe and comfort, too!
After taking care of the ultra parched areas of your complexion, it’s time to target dullness. And one of our favorite ways to keep dullness at bay is with a glow-enhancing facial mask like The Body Shop’s Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask. Enriched with powerful ingredients—such as, tea leaves, tea tree oil, and bamboo charcoal—this purifying facial mask can give the skin a deep cleanse and promote a natural-looking, ultra radiant glow.
