I have started using masks more often since they do give my skin a visible boost. Sheet masks are a welcoming addition to my routine since they are not messy. I can keep hustling with my mask on, no worries, all within the boundaries of my own home since these masks can be a bit off putting.

The last step to get the best out of your mask is to massage pressure points on your face to destress, making this a relaxing multitasker. Lightly press the area in between your brows to help concentration, your temples to relieve eyes and apparently the area right underneath your nose will fight fatigue. I am doing it right now! The little dip in your chin may help your biorhythm I did some research on that and there is a lot to get into there. That’s a whole other blog…for someone else.
