The Calming Agents
One of the things we most hate about troubled skin, (or even generally good skin that’s in a mood) is how helpless it can leave us feeling. Yes, there are worse problems to have. But at Peach & Lily, we are all about feeling good—starting with a radiant canvas—and facing the world from there. Bad skin can take a toll on our confidence...and it sucks. And so, yet. another. reason. to love sheet masks. A 20-minute session with a targeted sheet mask can actually target breakouts, redness, and other irritation. Friends often ask how we do so many sheet masks—and here’s our tip: apply sheet mask (dry hands!), hit play on an episode of your favorite Netflix sitcom (or whatever floats your boat) :) —when it ends 20-23 or so minutes later, remove the sheet mask and pat in the remaining essence with your fingertips. Et voila!
Twenty minutes of dedicated treatment—after all, sheet masks essentially force feed nutrients to your face—means 20 minutes of feeling empowered to care for your skin and address whatever problems it’s having. We are firmly about that kind of self-care .
OK—so how to use the famed, bestselling Ariul sheet masks to combat trouble skin? Our picks are Tea Tree (a superhero acne-fighting ingredient) and aloe vera.
Ariul, 7 days Mask - Tea Tree, $3
Let’s talk about Tea Tree first! This tree, native to Australia, is known for its anti-viral and anti-fungal properties. Ariul’s Tea Tree sheet mask is touted for its clearing & purifying abilities—after all this ingredient is a must for treating acne.
Have very acneic skin and feeling doubtful about the benefits this plant can provide? Studies have actually shown Tea Tree to be equally as effective in fighting acne as commonly used chemical Benzoyl Peroxide—only minus the redness and peeling sometimes associated with the harsher stuff.
Aloe Vera is another power plant with skin-healing powers! When researching this ingredient further, we learned that Egyptians called it “the plant of immortality!” It’s actually a kind of cactus, and its clear gel, known for its healing and soothing, is what it’s best known for. That gel, as it turns out, contains two hormones beneficial in fighting acne. Auxin reduces inflammation while Gibberellins stimulates the growth of new cells and allows the skin to heal quickly, and with minimal scarring.
If you’re focused on taming inflamed acneic skin, or just want to have some in case of emergency masks on hand—these are two we love. Of course, if you’re more of the I-want-to-try-it-all (and trust—we relate!)—then you can still try one of each of these in the 7-day set!
