Editors' Pick: Find Zen with These Fresh—Albeit Creepy-Looking—Face Masks
Cure your tired skin—and case of the Mondays—with this rejuvenating ritual.
I don't know about you, but I didn't accomplish half the things I hoped to this weekend. For me, spring cleaning—organizing of any kind, really—means creating a much bigger mess before addressing the original, simple tasks at hand. While I was pretty productive overall, my Monday morning has involved obsessing over the still-to-dos rather than appreciating all the checks I marked off my list over the past two days. The current state of my apartment aside, what really takes a beating during these stress-induced times is my skin. Karuna's innovative face-hugging cloth masks force me to slow down while nourishing my tired visage.
I'll admit, the first time I tried the Exfoliating+ Face Mask I felt like a character from Face Off—or a masked killer from a bad Halloween movie, still can't decide. Either way, I was mostly concerned about freaking out my roommate. However, after giving in to the power of the dual-action mask by laying down and letting the serum-soaked veil absorb onto my face, all of my worries melted away, along with my impurities.
The products are packed with all-natural ingredients such as pineapple extract and citric acid, as well as Karuna's signature beauty boost blend of healing aloe vera and chamomile. While they come in a variety of formulas to address different concerns, my tried-and-true exfoliating option is suitable for most skin types. What sealed the deal for this tree-hugger was that the cloths are biodegradable, helping them retain 50 percent more moisture than synthetic-material alternatives. Additionally, the masks can be stored in the refrigerator or soaked in warm water before use.
