All of the things that brought us some joy this year.
Short of running through an open fire hydrant or walking really close to stores in the hopes that someone will open the door and blast you with some AC at the exact moment you walk by, it's hard to stay cool in a heat wave like the one that's plaguing the East Coast now. Luckily the beauty industry has a cure for your overheated, red, stressed out, sweaty face: Face mists. We've long been fans of these refreshing spritzes, and if you haven't yet tried one, now is definitely the time.
If you, like us, ate and drank yourself into a stupor on Thanksgiving (and the, um, three days afterwards), we're here to tell you: It's only going to get worse over the next month. Puffiness from too much salt and alcohol? Break-outs from sleeping in your makeup? Yep, holiday party season is officially here! Bad diet (hello, Christmas cookie season!), alcohol, lack of sleep, and cold winter air can all do a number on your skin. Masks are a great quick fix--they can deliver a concentrated dose of active ingredients for whatever pick-me-up your skin needs. Whether you're lacking radiance, need some moisture, or want to clear up a break-up, there's a mask for that--and we tried a ton of them.
Yes, you do need them actually.
