Knours Know-How Ep. 13: DIY Face Masks for Ultimate Relaxation

Let’s face it: skincare routines can sometimes be a bit *boring* - yes, even if we swap out products here and there. Luckily, that’s where sheetmasks come in! These soothing (sometimes splurgy) products help bring a little spice to our routines thanks to how much variety there is. While we wait for our own sheet masks to return (they’ll be back soon, we promise), we have some recommendations on how to transform your Knours products into masks! Don’t worry about wasting any product because the following only require two to three squeezes for best results.

1.  Cooling Gel Mask

When your skin is feeling particularly hot or temperamental, apply a thin, even layer (two squeezes should do) of Your Only Meditation Gel Cream all over your face to make a practically invisible gel mask. We recommend leaving the mask on for at least 5 minutes for your skin to absorb the hydrating and soothing nutrients. When time is up you can gently dab your skin with a tissue or cotton ball to soak up any excess product and can then apply it to other parts of your body like your chest or neck. Your skin will have a bright post-spa glowy complexion.

2.  Calming Blackhead Remover

Put 2-3 generous pumps of Your Only Facial Cleanser into a small microwavable bowl and heat up for 10 seconds. Put warm cleanser onto dry nose and chin and leave on for 10 minutes. After time is up, wash off the pore strip and gently dab the nose with a clean towel. We recommend applying this DIY pore strip before you go into the shower as the steam from the water will help unclog pores and allow for a deeper, more satisfying kind of exfoliation. Wash off the “strip” towards the end of your shower and once finished, gently dab your face dry with a clean towel before drying your hair and body.

3.  Dry Spot Treatment

If you see any dry patches on your face then we recommend applying a small amount of either Your Only Meditation Gel Cream or One Perfect Youth Cream to the spots that require a little extra TLC throughout the day. Gel Cream is great for those with oily, acne-prone skin while Youth Cream is perfect for those with dry, sensitive, or dull skin. You could even mix the two moisturizers together for a creamy gel texture that will quench any skin’s thirst.

4.  Toner to Prep the Skin

If your face is lacking moisture and you need a quick fix then try this Be Kind Double Duty Mist hack. First, dampen several cotton rounds by generously spraying them with our bi-phase mist. Next, place the rounds onto your forehead and cheeks and let them sit for 5 minutes. Remove cotton rounds and gently pat all the liquid into your face so your skin can absorb the beneficial ingredients to lock in moisture and protect your skin from harmful intruders. Pro tip: let the cotton rounds soak in the refrigerator overnight! This way you can wake yourself and your skin up with a cool, refreshing feeling whenever necessary. It is best to do this after you have cleansed your face so that you are working on a clean palette. You can also use the soaked cotton rounds as a substitute toner pad by gently patting onto cleansed, dry skin being careful not to tug.
