I’m a big fan of #SkincareSunday; the notion that beauty fiends the world over devote time each week to taking extra special care of their skin is one I adore. Plus I’ve always loved the idea of starting each week with a clean slate (and face!) – it’s the same reason I tend to fit in extra long workouts, copious amounts of housework and delicious home-cooked meals on Sundays.
I’ve personally practiced special Sunday skincare for years, and though I’m always trying new masks, peels, moisturizers and scrubs, there are a few products that have remained in the regular rotation. Here are my top picks for #SkincareSunday:
1. Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel Original Formula: This at-home peel is gentle enough to use on sensitive skin and delivers noticeably softer, smoother, brighter skin. I’ve used the extra strength version and find it slightly too harsh for my skin, but this version is just perfect! Use this when your skin looks dull or feels a little scaly.
2. Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque: This is probably the most-recommended product on my blog. It shrinks pores, absorbs oil and helps clean out black heads. You just simply can’t get a better skincare product for such a ridiculously low price. Basically, anytime your skin just needs to be cleaned up a bit, use this.
3. Boscia Luminizing Black Mask: This peel off mask is basically a pore strip for your entire face, though it’s less painful. It will tug all the grit and grime out of your pores and kind of feels like a science experiment. Use this when your pores are clogged and you want to get them good and clean!
Bonus – Philosophy Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Moisturizer: This is hands-down my favorite moisturizer. It makes my skin so soft and bright, and slathering it on after any of the above treatments makes them extra effective!
