As we get ready for longer days in the sun and going to more beach trips, it’s important to prepare our most important accessory: our complexion. While bikinis, sundresses, and Hawaiian polos help us achieve that summer look, what will really get us get that aesthetic is a bright complexion that matches the shine of the summer sun. Here are some facial masks to help you get that glow for the next time you’re going out of town with your family and friends.
With ingredients like caffeine, peridot, hyaluronic acid, and glycerin, this Peter Thomas Roth gives the face intense hydration and makes it appear firmer and more youthful. More than that, the gold gives the skin an opulent and revitalized glow. It’s like copping Cleopatra’s own skin brightening treatments involving gold.
