KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend!! I've got another round up of beautiful home decor items for you guys today. It hasn't been intentional, it just so happens that the Friday Finds participants have all been home decor shops lately, and I'm loving it! With Spring coming up soon, it's the perfect time to spruce things up around the house and update your decor for the new season. Pictured: Geometric Pineapple Jewelry Holder/Home Accessory

First up is something we could all use more of in our homes - hygge by Snygge Home (pronounced snoo-gue). Snygge is a play on the danish word hygge that I'm sure you've heard of by now...or at least seen and thought what is hygge anyway? Hygge is "a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being." You can read more about it on Hygge Home.

At Snygge Home, owner Alice and her boyfriend Jack create hygge-inspired homeware, gifts, and event decorations using 3D printing. And like most E…

Beauty Trend: Multi-Masking

This budding skincare trend seems like a no-brainer. Multi-masking is all about using multiple masks at one time, to address different needs on different parts of the face. It makes perfect sense considering most people have a few different skin types, often combination oily or dry and sensitive, each with more trouble spots often in the T-zone area.

Several different skincare brands are taking advantage of the trend, offering multi-mask sets, like the WEI Multitask Multi-Mask Collection pictured above, and the Mario Badescu mask set.

Which Type of Mask to Use for Your Skin Type

An intense hydrating mask is of course great for moisture. If you have a lot of flaky or dull skin, and antioxidant-rich mask can help return your skin to proper condition.

For gentle yet effective exfoliation that won't dry your skin, go with an enzyme mask as opposed to a scrubbing mask that could further dry and irritate the skin. For an all-natural DIY exfoliating mask, simply use yogurt. The lactic acid acts a natural peel to gently exfoliate and brighten the skin.

For deep cleansing and treating large pores, the best thing you could use is a clay or mud mask to draw out all of the dirt and oil. Charcoal is amazing too. Unless you have sensitive skin, try using a charcoal sugar scrub before your clay mask. I really love the Freeman Black Sugar and Charcoal Mask.

For deep wrinkles, you can temporarily plump and smooth the skin with hyaluronic acid and help to treat fine lines and deep wrinkles with retinol (my favorite anti-wrinkle ingredient). This does come in the form of anti-aging facial masks. Though it also comes in serums and creams. I would just let my hyaluronic face cream do double duty as a mask by leaving it on for five to ten minutes. Of course if any of these things cause redness or irritation, you should discontinue use. For a budget option, I really love the L'Oreal Revitalift Triple Power Serum and Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Moisturizer.

The biggest bit of advice I'd give is to not over dry the skin. Even if you have very oily skin, drying it out can actually cause your skin to produce more oil, thus causing oily skin all over again. It's all about balance. For example, after using a great deep cleansing mask, always follow up with a good moisturizer.

  1. Charcoal masks are my go-to for my acne, but some of these multi-taskers sound amazing (especially if they eliminate some steps in my daily routine).
