So summer has officially arrived with this beautiful and scorching sunny weather. We are mad to get out there and get our bods bronzed up in the great outdoors any chance we have. However, let’s remember that overdoing it, or forgetting our sunscreen can leave our skin dehydrated and prematurely aging or just plain aging. So check out one of OUR favourite skin care products in OUR beauty bag, the gorgeous STARSKIN Face Masks. These uniquely formulated masks are just what the dermatologist ordered after a day of tanning. These masks give your skin an amazing celebrity style glow and plumpness that is hard to come by without spending hours at the spa or beauty salon. I have gone through all the masks personally and there isn’t a single disappointing result.
So let me tell you what makes them a 5 star mask
STARSKIN®’s Coconut Bio-Cellulose Face Masks have amazing ingredients firstly. It is a formula referred to as Coconut Bio-Cellulose but if you break down what’s in it, it is the most powerful fruit acids, oils and supplements that you can find all in one mask. There is no silicone or rubbish in these masks. The mask is saturated with the serum, and binds itself to your skin beautifully. After 30 minutes, your skin will look and feel visibly hydrated, and plumper. It completely re-conditions the skin and the sheet mask material ensures that the serum is absorbed by your skin. It is a great after-sun skin care mask, because it was actually developed for burn victims and people dealing with severe skin disorders.
The only draw back might be that they are little bit on the pricey side at 10 euros per mask but I get a good few uses out of each mask even if that is not the recommendation. There is plenty of the amazing Bio-Cellulose serum packed in each mask and there are even masks designed for your delicate eye area. In my opinion, it’s not much of an asking price for what you actually get. The results are not only instant with these masks but you also get the long-term benefits to your skin’s health.
Another mentionable may be that although the results are instant the process is not a quick 5 minute job like you may find with other masks. If you want the results and benefits that can come from one of these masks then you are going to have to let it sit on your skin for at least 20 minutes.
Star Skin Beauty masks are a luxury brand at the end of the day but after a whole day in the sun, even with top class SPF slathered on, I still worry about aging gracefully, so I slap one of these babies on and relax in a warm bath for 30 minutes and I feel completely guilt-free about baking to a crisp earlier in the day (haha how a woman’s brain works, right? It’s like when you have that sneaky bag of crisps or portion of chips and then go for a run to work it off!) So girls, check out the whole range and see which one you might want to add to your beauty bag….with real ingredients like brown algae, spelt seed, magnolia bark and niacinamide your skin will be most likely be smoother, more balanced, glowing and supple and all in less time than it’d take you to cook a dinner, so treat yourself….RIGHT!
Here are some more yummy mummy tips to keep your tan but not loose your cool when you start to notice a few extra lines on your skin.
- Keep hydrated and no I don’t mean wine coolers, mojitos and a pink daiquiri girls. I mean good ol’ water with a slice of lemon or lime to make it alkaline, ice-cold preferably so you drink a lot more. You should be drinking the equivalent of half your body weight in ounces of water per day. So if you are 150 pounds then drink 75 ounces per day for great skin, health and weight management.
- SUNSCREEN SUNSCREEN- this is not an option girls. Everyone needs SPF to protect their skin from aging. There are a load of options and we will be blogging about our favorite sunscreens in more beauty bag blogs, but for now make sure you have either CC, BB cream or foundation that has at least 30 SPF and if you don’t then use a separate sunscreen either under your favorite products or over but whatever you do protect that beautiful face from any unwanted side effects and aging the sun may cause. Maybe try to avoid peak hours (i.e midday) in the sun and if you can’t, wear a hat and glasses.
- AFTER SUN CARE- Always try to do as much damage control after a day in the sun. Pure Aloe Vera is amazing for healing, cooling and balancing the moisture levels of your skin. And do try the Star Skin Masks, you won’t be disappointed.
And of course Stay Yummy….
