Hue Knew that looking as bright-eyed and bushy-tailed as actresses Gabrielle Union and Charlize Theron could be a simple as using face masks that brighten skin, tighten and zap dirt away from brands like Peter Thomas Roth, Eraclea and Innarah.
Brighten Your Skin Overnight
Skin care guru Peter Thomas Roth does it again with yet another hit – Camu Camu Power C x 30 Vitamin C Brightening Sleeping Mask ($62, sephora.com). What prey tel is Camu Camu you ask? It’s a potent berry superfruit located in the Amazon that provides 30 times more Vitamin C, which better penetrates skin to improve collagen levels – a.k.a. fine lines are filled in, wrinkles are smoothed out while skin is brightened and firmed and all of this happens as you slumber!
Face Lift In A Mask
Still don’t qualify for a lunch-time face lift just yet? Try Eraclea Firm-Lifting Mask ($50, eracleaskincare.com) – a cooling gel mask that helps restore skin elasticity as it softens it. It promotes elastin, collagen and proteoglycan production to help reduce sagging skin syndromethe effects of aging and gravity on the skin. Skin immediately appears firmer, toned and sculpted. This mask smoothes and reduces the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles & pores to help the skin look years younger. Note: Proteoglycans increase elasticity, smoothness and hydration and also helps prevent the formation of new wrinkles while softening the appearance of existing lines.
Maintain Your Pretty AND Save Money
By now you know that HueKnewIt is down with the “multi-use” swirl because it’s about saving money whenever possible and Innarah Defense Masque Oxygentaing Masque ($125, doobop.com) – fits that bill to a T! Defense Mask hydrates, deep cleans, detoxifies and oxygenates it, which simply means that it brightens dull skin and unclogs pores. See below for key ingredients:
- Rich Loamy Earth: High in trace elements that bind to toxins. Native Americans have used this earth for years to heal wounds and detoxify skin smoothing the appearance of enlarged pores while it refines skin’s texture.
- Marine Phytoplankton: Acts as a powerful agent and protective immunostimulant. It accelerates the rejuvenation of damaged skin, stimulating the production of collagen and revitalizing the skin.
- Phospholipids: Improves skin hydration.
- Chamae Rose: A rich source of Proanthocyanidins beneficial for skin purification, color, tone and elasticity. They are known for their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.
