By now, you’ve almost certainly heard of hygge (pronounced HOO-gah), the Danish concept that basically translates to “coziness” and “well-being”. It’s swept America by storm during the past year and frankly, we’re not ready to give it up yet—especially now that the temperatures are falling and it’s getting dark earlier and earlier.
Winter is coming…and we’re ready to curl up with a good book in front of the fire. Another part of the hygge concept is taking part in life’s simpler pleasures and finding comfort in even the smallest pleasures in life. It’s a sort of re-balancing that is meant to bring peaceful order and happiness to your life.
And you know what else makes us seriously happy? Gorgeous, glowing skin. The thing about winter is that it doesn’t always make it easy to achieve that goal what with all the cold weather and dry heat inside that seem to draw the moisture out of your skin.
Enter a dash of hygge and a couple Clark’s Botanicals products. Because what is a mask if not one of life’s little pleasures? (We recommend wearing while you relax by that cozy fire.) If you’re experiencing excessive dryness, start with our Deep Moisture Mask which is formulated with algae extract to calm redness, Comfrey root extract to soothe inflammation, and Jasmine Absolute to help re-balance stressed out skin. Apply it to skin that’s just been washed with our Soothing Herbal Face Wash and leave on for five to 10 minutes before rinsing with warm water. If you’re feeling extra dry, leave it on overnight or even use it as a moisturizer.
Another fun tip is to combine the Deep Moisture Mask and our Intense Radiance Mask. Along with all the moisturizing properties described above, the Radiance Mask contains white clay to instantly brighten and visibly smooth tired skin. Do this two to three times a week and your skin will glow!
Don’t you feel happier already?
