ITEM OF THE WEEK: Dr. Jart Pore Minimalist Sheet Mask | STAINED COUTURE

In last week’s IOTW, I shared an overnight mask that helped us wake up with soft and dewy skin. This week, it’s all about one my favorite sheet masks. Personally, I feel like you can never have too many sheet masks. For the most part, most sheet masks cost less than a cup of coffee, which makes them easy to buy in bulk. Every time I pass a colorful display full of various sheets masks, I buy at least 3. I’m not a real stickler on the brands, because I mainly slap them on my face as minute moment of self-care while watching horrible reality TV and drinking wine. However, there is one sheet mask that I have to buy or order whenever I can, which is Dr. Jart’s Pore Minimalist sheet mask.

When it comes to skincare, if a product claims to help minimize the appearance of pores – I will probably buy it. That is how I first decided to buy this mask, because it  stated it was “ideal for” pimples and large pores. Basically, it was ideal for all the things I dislike about my skin. Not only did it help to instant minimize the appearance of my large pore, but helped to clean out excess oil and other pore-clogging yuckiness.

This sheet masks are great to use before doing your makeup for an event or when you know you will be taking pictures. Yes, this sheet is selfie-approved, because your skin will look extra flawless. Of course, these won’t make your pores smaller forever. However, if you use them one or twice a week, you might notice a change in the elasticity of your skin. Tighter and smoother skin? Yes, please and thank you.

These masks are available at Sephora, Sephora.com, and Dr. Jart’s website.

Have you tried this Pore Minimalist sheet mask from Dr. Jart? Thoughts?

PREJUVENATION – Skincare tips for your 20s

I like to say I don’t have many regrets in life, but I do have a few. One thing I regret is not taking better care of my skin before my late 20s. When I was in college and up until my late 20s, I was more into makeup and giving the illusion that I have decent skin. However, under those layers of unmatched layers of foundation and too bright blush, there was large pores, acne, and hyperpigmentation. Thankfully, I didn’t wait too late to learn about proper skincare and skin rejuvenation. However, I can’t help but too feel a little annoyed that if I just learned more about “prejuvenation” in my 20s then I wouldn’t be all rejuvenation in my 30s.
