The other day my son and I sat down at the piano and attempted to plunk out some tunes with my all to rusty fingers. "Play something scary!" he demanded. Immediately, I dusted off my Andrew Lloyd Weber book and very dramatically played the Phantom of the Opera theme. "What's a phantom?" he asked. That question took us into YouTube, which then lead us to search for the unmasking of the Phantom. Two things crossed my mind during this escapade : 1.) Is this okay for a 4-year old to watch? and 2.) Emmy Rossum's skin looked absolutely glowing, albeit being surrounded by the candlelight of 4,500 dripping candles, and I wanted the same effect.
I was pretty sure that I had a mask somewhere in my arsenal that could help me achieve the same results. After chasing him around in my phantom-like sheet mask I revealed the glow of Christine in as little as a few minutes. "Masquerade! Paper faces on display..."
The Grand Dame
This mask was recommended to me by one of the world's most famous models in response to asking how she never looked tired, even after a relentless travel schedule. Drenched in amino acids and vitamins, SKII's sheet mask gives you the glow of a bride. As a matter of fact, it is Japanese tradition to wear the SKII mask everyday for 90 days to ensure perfect skin before their wedding.
Instant youthful rosiness is achieved with Kiehl's turmeric and cranberry seed radiance mask. Packed with loads of antioxidants, this mud mask coaxes your best skin forward. The micronized cranberry seed sloughs away any dead, dulling skin, leaving you with radiant skin that requires less makeup!
After a busy day, this mask always brings my skin back to life! Elizabeth Arden's Prevage city smart mask is virtually undetectable when applied, yet leaves you with detectably positive results like reduced pore size (a huge plus in my book). The best part is that this peel off mask rids your face of the daily toxins that haunt your skin like the phantom haunts the opera.
