Let’s talk about those Freddie Kruger style wet masks that come in a pouch. Do you know of what I speak? Scary in look, crazy good in skin benefits.
First tip for Kruger-ing out: pick a time when you don’t want to see people. Mine would be pre-party, when I’m trying to fill my introvert battery to max level (do you feel me?). Why not emerge from the darkside with a bright complexion to go along with your optimism about humankind? Why not look sparkling and dewy while discussing the weather and what Donald Trump said yesterday?
NERD Miraculous Brightening Mask is a go-to for this type of moment. These folks make smart skincare that’s actually grown - biocellulose (the mask material) is a layer of sugars, and is also used in medical treatments … it’s kind of confusing, but let’s leave that to the nerds.
This sheet feels is a bit like a mini facial in a pouch, but it’s cheaper. You leave it on for about 30 minutes while you obsess in private about your outfit, or care not at all, and watch Netflix. It’s great for all skin types and has a nice range of moisturizers and brighteners: rice bran oil extract, macadamia oil, tripeptides, hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and licorice root extract. Bonus is it’s also 100% biocompatible and biodegradable, so you can throw it away right along with those snarky pre-party thoughts.
