NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Many ladies love their handbags and will spend a lot of money for the latest and greatest, but a new study says what is inside those bags may be covered in germs worse than what you’ll find in the bathroom.
After experiencing a bit of an indian summer, it's a pretty gloomy day here in good ol' NYC which means all that time you spent perfecting your hair and makeup this morning (aka your 20-minute subway ride) is all for naught. The good news is, you can blame the unfortunate weather patterns for skipping out on happy hour and instead heading home to a warm bath and a nice relaxing face mask before tuning into the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. I had the pleasure of soaking my cheeks in Korres' Yogurt Mask this weekend, and in case you're acne-prone or trying to remedy the toll that winter's harsh bite has taken on your skin, I've got you covered with my four masks o' choice.
The Best Mask For Acne-Prone Skin SkinCeuticals Clarifying Clay Masque, $46 at SkinCeuticals This non-drying masque combines high-quality natural earth clays to effectively decongest pores and lift impurities, leading to clear skin.
The Best Skin-Balancing Mask Korres Yoghurt Velvety Moisturizing Mask, $32 at Korres USA My favorite of the bunch, this mask never fails to make my skin feel, well, perfect. Because yogurt is like a miricle ingredient for your skin, this mask not only moisturizes but also reduces redness and soothes as it heels dry skin.
The Best Mask For Relieving Extra-Dry Skin Dermalogica Intensive Moisture, $40 at DermStore This ultra-thick formula does wonders for starving skin in need of a little push, and the combination of antioxidant vitamins and firming humectants restores skin's elasticity.
The Best Rejuvinating Face Mask Clarins Extra-Firming, $50 at Clarins USA If you're looking for a firming mask, this one from Clarins is your best bet. The SPF formula as all the agents to remove skin cells and awaken tired skin, no matter your age.
