It’s that time of the week again, you’ve made it, you’re halfway through! Now, it’s time to take 15 minutes for yourself! So far in this series, I’ve touched on the relaxing benefits of adult coloring and Buddha Boards. I’ve neverbeenso excited to share with you my next little wind down secret: Yes To Grapefruit Pore Perfection Paper Masks. I buy these things in bulk.
I am constantly looking for the next best beauty product, especially face masks. Finally I was in Target browsing the aisles, as usual, without a cart, hoping that would cut down on my purchases, until I saw these bright pink packets staring at me.
I had heard of Yes To in passing, so I figured why not try it out. But how to did I arrive at Grapefruit?
Yes To Grapefruit: Evens Skin Tone/Brightens
Why Grapefruit? Grapefruit is packed with vitamin C, an immune system booster that encourages collagen production for younger-looking skin. It also contains citrus flavonoids, powerful biological actives which help prevent the over production of melanin in the skin resulting in a brighter complexion. The extract and essential oil come from the peel of the fruit, which has a refreshing effect on the body.
So, not only are grapefruits great in a drink, but they’re also great for your skin! I picked up a single packet of the Yes To Grapefruit Pore Perfection Paper Masks and eagerly went home to test it out. This is, you guessed it, an actual paper mask you apply to your face, rather than a cream-based product.
The instructions state to leave the mask on for 10 minutes, I left it on about 15. I felt a tingling sensation that I didn’t want to end because it had to be working right? I peeled off the mask, face was a little red, but we’re talking SERIOUS pore reduction. I am one of those who can spend hours staring at my pores in the mirror and there was nothing left to stare at! It was brilliant! Once the reddening faded, my skin looked even too!
I try to use these at least once a week; I promise, you’ll have neverbeenso relaxed.
The other great thing about Yes To products is that they are made with 95% natural ingredients. They never include parabens, phthalates, SLS, silicones, chemical sunscreens and other potentially harmful ingredients. AND they don’t test on animals! One more thing, Yes To gives back a portion of company profits to the YES TO Seed Fund, whose goal is to inspire kids to lead healthier, more positive lives.
So while you’re winding down and making your skin feel good, you can feel good about it too.
Yes To offers something for everyone:
Yes To Carrots: The Original – Moisturizing
Why Carrots? A carrot is brimming full of beta carotene (they have the most of any vegetable!), a fabulous antioxidant that helps protect and nourish skin.
Yes To Cucumbers: Rejuvenation
Why Cucumbers? A cucumber is packed with rejuvenating vitamins which soothe and soften the skin.
They also have cooling properties to help keep your skin supple and fresh, with a fragrance that soothes and relaxes.
Yes To Tomatoes: Balancing
Why Tomatoes? Tomatoes are rich in lycopene. If your pores were a secret club, Lycopene would be the bouncer. This powerful anti-oxidant helps blocks free radicals and keeps your skin balanced. Fruit (remember tomato is a fruit!) acids naturally help clear your complexion so your skin can party on.
Yes To Blueberries: Anti-aging
Why Blueberries? Blueberries are packed with antioxidants such as anthocyanins which help fight the formation of free radicals that damage the skin’s microstructure. This helps protect you from premature aging. And who doesn’t want that?
NEW Yes To Coconuts: Hydrate and Restore
Why Coconuts? Coconut (Cocos nucifera) is one of nature’s most multi-tasking offerings, rich in essential vitamins. Coconut oil is light, nongreasy and exceptionally emollient. Whether youre interested in the fruit’s water, milk, meat, shell or oil, there are plenty of reasons to appreciate the natural awesomeness of Coconut!
