Arcona’s Tea Tree Mask

Hereeee’s dryness!

It’s cold outside, and boy is my dry-prone skin feeling it.

I’ve armored myself with some pretty awesome new moisturizers–posts to come soon!–but there’s a very essential regimen for battling dry skin that you mustn’t forget.

It’s called exfoliation. Exfoliation is extra critical in these cold winter months. Among many other reasons why you should exfoliate, highlights the benefits for parched skin:

Especially in the winter, exfoliation is very important. So often when the skin is dry, we tend to load up on heavier creams to compensate for the dryness. But dry skin means you have dry skin cell buildup. And the more you layer on the heavier creams, the more you are trying to re-hydrate dry skin cells, which makes no sense! Instead, increase your exfoliation to remove the dry skin cells, and then moisturize the new skin cells, resulting in a moister skin.

I have been around the block with exfoliants–everything from Clarisonic to Tatcha’s Rice Enzyme Powder–and while I still use both of them regularly, I wanted to try something a bit more multi-purpose; like, I don’t know, a detoxifying-decongesting dominator!

Enter Arcona’s Tea Tree Mask.

Arcona is a Femilady fav. The Wine Hydrating Mask is brilliant and the whole line is super duper squeaky clean (in terms of ingredients).

So what does this mask do besides exfoliating?

Here’s the breakdown from Nubonau (Femilady’s preferred Arcona provider!):

Exfoliate, decongest and diminish pores with antibacterial Salicylic acid and Tea tree extract
Detoxify and reduce breakouts with Sulphur and Grapefruit extract
Heal and calm skin with anti-inflammatory Mint balm, Allantoin and Lavender extracts

It boasts just a few ingredients and is recommended for all skin types. Get yours at today and you’ll score some free samples with purchase!
