The Face Mask You Need to Beat the Monday Blues
After a weekend full of brunching with friends, hanging out by the pool, and catching up on your favorite TV shows, the mere thought of Monday can be—to put it simply—depressing. And while it may feel like an eternity until you get to do it all over again, there’s a quick way to beat the blues and make Monday evening feel like an extension of your weekend. Next time you’re feeling down about the start of the work week, pencil in a little “me-time” Monday night and make a date with this luxurious face mask.
Whenever we get a case of the Mondays, we find that treating our skin to an at-home facial when we get home from a hard day’s work is a great way to hit the refresh button and prepare our minds—and skin—for the week ahead. Decléor’s Life Radiance Flash Mask is just the pick-me-up we need! Formulated with essential oils of saro and elemi and a fruit acid complex of passion fruit, grape, and pineapple, this mask can help to give your skin an energizing “pick me up” perfect for a Monday. The formula works to help purify and cleanse, promote microcirculation, and remove the dull veil—read: dead skin cell buildup—from the skin’s surface.
While the mask only takes three minutes—making it perfect for Monday mornings as well!—we like to use it as the start of a full night of pampering complete with a DIY pedicure and a soothing and relaxing bubble bath. To use, apply an even layer to your freshly cleansed face and leave it on for three minutes—use this time to pick out your nail polish! Once your time is up, rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and follow up with a hydrating moisturizer
