New Year, Same Skin, ‘Til Now...

by Kenyatta D. Pious
You survived another stressful holiday with nagging cousins, a mother that doesn’t understand that your maternal clock is just fine, and all those weird holiday parties. While sifting through all your “sosh meads” pics, you wish your skin could have looked a little healthier in 2015...

Just in time for the New Year, we have three brands that will help you to maintain the best possible skin throughout 2016: Masque Bar by Look Beauty Anti Blemish-Prone Mud Mask, Bioré Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips, and Curél Itch Defense Instant Soothing Moisturizing Spray.

The Masque Bar by Look Beauty Anti Blemish-Prone Mud Mask will allow you to achieve markedly clearer skin all while calming irritated skin, blemishes and bumps! We found this product ideal to target those unexpected breakouts that usually result from stress. Tip: You don’t have to apply the entire mask on your face, but can apply just to affected areas and you will love how soothing this non-drying application is. You will really heart that the Masque Bar by Look Beauty Anti Blemish-Prone Mud Mask is only $9.99; Amazon.com.

Blackheads need not be the bane of your existence with Bioré Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips. These strips are super easy to use and tout proprietary c-bond technology and potent charcoal, which help remove clogs and weeks’ worth of buildup so you’ll see 3x less oil as the formula works to refine pores and diminish their appearance over time!

While the Bioré Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips are meant for blackheads, we find that many women have issues with whiteheads and just clogged up, oily pores, which means typically awful makeup applications. The Bioré Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips work well to reduce whiteheads and blackheads and oil is reduced for an astonishing full 24 hours! Tip: Use the Bioré Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips after a shower. Retail: $6.49; Drug and Mass Merchant Stores.

Lastly, we highly recommend the Curél Itch Defense Instant Soothing Moisturizing Spray to combat flare ups and itchy bumps. Your skin will be instantly hydrated and cool with this non-medicated formula. Additionally, your skin won’t feel or look cakey. This is a simple treatment for quick relief and the Curél Itch Defense Instant Soothing Moisturizing Spray can be stored in most purses for access at any event.

At a mere $8.99 in most Drug and mass merchants, Curél Itch Defense Instant Soothing Moisturizing Spray is a a must-have!
