Mario Monthly Edit: February Skin Care
Love the skin
In the spirit of self-love (which may or may not be inspired by Valentine’s Day), we couldn’t help but be a little on the nose when curating this month’s skin care edit. The overarching theme is pampering and rejuvenation—and what better way to do just that than to harness the benefits of Rose-infused skin care?
Here’s what we’re using for the month of February:
We love the zingy, super-fresh clean feeling that a gel cleanser
gives, but in the winter, skin tends to crave something comforting and creamy.
Even better if it’s a two-in-one that streamlines light makeup removal and
Sweep this Rose-infused astringent across all corners of your
face, neck, and chest. Your skin is left feeling fresh and looking rejuvenated—and
ready for a round of misting and moisturizing.
If ever there were a more apropos time for a Rosewater face mist,
February would be it. (That’s not to say that Rose isn’t good any other time of
year, though—our face mists are meant to be used anytime, anywhere.) Skin in
need of rejuvenation and clarity? Mist. Hair in need of a refresh? Mist. When
in doubt? Mist, always.
It’s velvety, creamy, and a dream for dry skin. Infused with
Gardenia Extract and packed with nourishing oils, The Moisture Magnet SPF 15 is
the ultimate restorative face cream. Apply it directly onto clean skin (after
you’ve cleansed and toned), or if you’re super parched that day, pair it with a
serum for an extra layer of moisturization.
For rich, lasting hydration, a few strategic drops of this Mario
Badescu Rosehip facial oil will do the trick. Because the texture veers on the
lighter side, you’re meant to apply this oil as a base layer (if you intend on
wearing a face cream, too)—but you most certainly can use it over your
moisturizer. Give your complexion a glow-y finish by warming a few drops between
your fingertips, then pressing the product over your cheekbones (or wherever
you want to add a natural highlight).
Care for your most delicate bits. For bright under-eyes and
petal-soft lips, reach for these hydration-packed essentials.
Indulge yourself in the ultimate treat. Two or three times a week, set aside 15 to 20 minutes to sit back and mask. Rose Hips Mask features Rosehip, of course, but it’s also packed with a multitude of other complexion-boosting botanicals, nourishing vitamins, and conditioning oils that comfort and replenish your skin. Rinse off after the mask is ready for removal and voila—soft, smooth, and rejuvenated skin.
