The Best Face Masks for the Label- Conscious




Everyone wants to have clear, blemish-free skin – that is a fact. However, let us be honest. How many people are actually patient enough to go through an entire skincare regimen every night just to achieve that? Quite frankly, not a lot.

While there is still no replacement for the good ‘ol Cleanse-Tone-Moisturize method, there is a viable alternative. Beauty and fashion face masks have become increasingly popular over the years. Aside from their occasionally cute and fun packaging, they are often packed with good stuff for your skin too. Unlike the usual routines involving three or more items that need to be applied every night, masks only need to be used two to three times a week. It also serves as a good relaxation activity after a long day of working. 

The Best Face Masks are definitely the ones that contain zero alcohol, sulfate and paraben while providing you with visible results. If you are the type to really dig deep into your labels – you have come to the right place. In this article, we will be sharing with you the most raved about face masks online.

Heidi Klum Skincare Tips




When you think of Heidi Klum, 47, her supermodel great looks and blonde hair probably spring immediately to our minds, so it might shock you that the German model and TV personality has a rather down-to-earth beauty skin care routine. From washing her face with unconventional, yet affordable, products to how she looks after her signature tresses, we need to know all the secrets for her elegant and fresh skin care.

Heidi Klum’s finally loves to share her new added product in her skin care routine

“I have added sunscreen to my daily routine. I grew up without a lot of awareness of how important it is to keep your skin protected from the sun. I remember tanning with baby oil – can you imagine doing that now? I have always been a sun bum. I’m at my happiest on a beautiful beach in the hot sun but, now, I put on sunscreen first. I like the tinted sunscreen by La Roche Posay.”

Her daily skincare routine

“In the morning, I take a shower and wash my face with Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Shampoo. I use baby shampoo as a face wash as it is the most gentle for your face and it removes everything. Then, I put on a moisturiser, usually Mario Badescu’s Buttermilk Lotion. At the end of my day, even if I am exhausted, I always wash off my make-up. For removing eye make-up, I again use baby shampoo. Then, I try different moisturisers at night that are a bit richer – I like Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum or Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Oil.”

Taking supplements to help your skin and body

I definitely think that you can buy all the potions and creams but it is essential to nourish your skin from within. I drink a fresh smoothie every morning that is made from fresh fruit and vegetables, and I take two Perfectil Vitamins which are targeted for my skin, hair and nails.”

Heidi Klum does not wear make up too much

“When I am not working, I try to keep it very natural. Most days I don’t wear any make-up but, if I am running errands, I use a bit of a light base to even out my skin tone and a bit of blush for my cheeks to give it a bit of a glow. I like Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Brow Pencil and Gel too.

“If I am going out with my husband [the German guitarist Tom Kaulitz] to dinner, I may be a bit more bold by painting on a red lip or adding some more mascara, like L’Oreal’s Voluminous Mascara for a more dramatic eye. I think make-up should be fun so I like to try different eyeshadows and colours.”

Bella Hadid Skincare Tips




Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the most beautiful of them all? Bella Hadid? Well, of course, she is. Her beauty is astounding, especially since her skin seems to glow even without the slightest trace of makeup. A model is required to stay her skin in top condition, but who says flawless skin is reserved only for top models like Hadid. Clear skin being one among her USPs, Bella is usually asked about her beauty routine and the way she manages to place her best bare face forward.

She spills the beans on her beauty routine in various interviews, and we’ve researched the lot to bring you her skincare and makeup tips.

When it involves skincare, Bella keeps it simple. She claims her skin is super sensitive and tends to induce dry; therefore, she sticks to the products that she knows works on her skin and doesn’t change them. Moisturizing formulas are her preferred function of skincare products.

Bella’s daily skincare routine is the same as always. Cleansing with a gentle face wash lotion, a moisturizing face mask, and lastly an oil-infused serum. Her routine doesn’t feature a toning step which we figure is due to her sensitive-dry skin type that could get disturbed and inflamed with the use of toner. Jelly masks that plump up her skin are her favorite.

Additionally, Hadid previously told Elle that she was not a fan of facials, but that must have been in her pre-Sturm days. “I’m not really into facials. I usually go for a massage because my bones are always hurting. And I like getting body scrubs, just to kind of get Fashion Week scrubbed off,” she said.

Moreover, the supermodel also has a killer travel routine for keeping her skin fresh too. “I travel a lot and I often work directly after landing. I use my mom’s advice, keeping my skin as good as it can be. So on a plane I wash my face as soon as I get on, I have all my serums and my night cream. And then I fall asleep and do it again when I wake up,” she told British Vogue. “So by the time I get off the plane my face is well rested and moisturized. And I always have a concealer with me, especially when I’m super-tired to get those dark eye bags away.”

Dakota Johnson Skincare Tips




Dakota Johnson, known for being the actress in the Fifty Shades and face of Gucci Bloom, knows how to keep it real, especially when it comes to beauty. This gap-toothed, fringe-forward celebrity shares her low-key skin care tips or routine, love for eye drops, and signature scent tactic in a Question and Answer!

She told Glamour that washing her face in the morning and at night, and putting moisturizer is part of her daily routine. She, too, uses sunscreen every day during the day.

The actress then revealed that she is now into using Lancer products. She also unveiled that she is avoiding using makeup if she is not filming any movies. When she has to go out with some friends on her free days, she just uses a little concealer, lip stains, and mascara.

She even uses the beauty tip her grandmother, Tippi Hedren, gave her. Her grandma advised her to hold her mirror down low whenever she is putting her mascara on. By looking downward, she will get the most coverage from her lashes’ base to the tips.

My no-frills skin care routine:

“I’m a sucker for pretty packaging, so I buy a bunch of products but end up not using any of them. I just like the way they look. I truly have the simplest routine: I wash my face in the morning and at night, then moisturise; during the day I add sunscreen. Right now I’m into Lancer products.”

My minimal-makeup M.O.:

“I don’t really wear makeup if I don’t have to. When I am going out somewhere, I’ll use a little concealer, lip color, and mascara.”

My bright-eye beauty hack:

“Hello, I’m Dakota, and I’m addicted to eye drops; the last time I used was 20 minutes ago. Really, I’m addicted to eye drops…. I just love the feeling of them in my eyes. It’s glorious.”

My grandmother’s mascara trick:

“She [actress Tippi Hedren] was watching me put my mascara on once and told me that if you hold the mirror down low and put the mascara on while looking downward, you will get the most coverage from the base of the lashes to the tips. And, of course, she’s right! She’s a f****** movie star; she’s a legend!”

My intentional perfume trail:

“I’ve always worn fragrance because I love to leave a scent behind. I love that perfume can take you back to someplace immediately. I prefer floral scents to ones that are musky. Right now I’m wearing Gucci Bloom; it’s very floral, so I love it. My mother [Melanie Griffith] has worn the same perfume my entire life, and that’s very comforting to me.”

My body-confidence moment:

“For my role as Susie, a ballet dancer, in Suspiria [out later this year], I trained for about six months with the brilliant Belgian-French choreographer Damien Jalet. I actually danced until I was 16 with a company in L.A., so it was great to work that muscle again. I rehearsed six or eight hours a day leading up to the shoot, then continued with two hours of rehearsals while shooting. It was truly the most wild experience. I learned that if I work my ass off, I’m capable of doing all sorts of things with my body.”

My beauty regrets:

“There are a few tattoos I wish weren’t on my body, but it happens, I guess, and admittedly, I continue to get them. I also was feeling a bit sassy this morning and cut my bangs in a whirlwind after six months of growing them out, so I hope I don’t regret that!”
