This morning I walked out of my apartment to see this:
The snow literally was taller than me. Last night, I was walking around the city before the blizzard really hit. I was headed to this restaurant in the city called Calle Ocho (delish Cuban Sandwiches). Although the city looked beautiful, it was FREEZING cold. I mean Freezing. When the weather is that frigid, I can expect my skin to get ridiculously dry, to the point where my face can hardy move. Excessive dry skin leads to aging, and you girls know my goal in life besides being the next Oprah is to stay looking 21 forever! It's always a good idea besides using a moisturizer to make sure you've got hydrating masques on hand. So as soon as I got home, I whipped out my Borghese Fango Restorativo Hydrating Mud Mask. I liked this for a few reasons:
Borghese signature ingredient is their Acqua Di Viti Complex. The complex is found in the mineral waters and volcanic mud of Tuscany. It contains ingredients like magnesium, sulfur, potassium, sodium chloride, bromide and other nutrients for the skin. Borghese claims that there was a study done that showed when the Aqua Di Viti Complex is applied to the skin, the body released endorphins, and people's mood improved. That really intrigued me. So this masque not only moisturizes the skin, but it's an anti-depressant too. I was sold! The masque is a very thick consistency. It's a light green color. The scent of this is peppermint mixed with lavender and when applied, it's very cooling on the skin. I left this on for a good 15 minutes, although it says to only leave on for 5-7 minutes. (I was engrossed in Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and couldn't step away from the TV.) Anyway, after I took this masque off, my skin felt so hydrated and soft and I think I was laughing a little more too! (Or maybe that's just because the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is hilarious. Did you guys see the episode with that psychic? Is Camille nuts or is it just me?) All in all, I'm digging this! HOWEVER, if I was pregnant, I wouldn't use it, due to the paraben content. I tried not to even look at parabens when I was pregnant.
Some other hydrating masques are Arbonne's Hydrating Mask which I love and reviewed here .
And another one is Nuskin's which contains Saccharide Isomarate, a moisture magnet that binds moisture to the skin to reduce dryness.
What hydrating masque do you use?
Are you trying to stay looking 21 forever?
Have you been watching Real Housewives of Beverly HIlls?
Did you see the episode with the psychic? What were your thoughts? I'm thinking if she's such a "psychic" why didn't she reveal to Camille that Kelsey Grammer was going to leave her for a Jet Blue flight attendant?
