The weekend is officially over, but there’s still a way you can hold onto a lazy, hazy summer afternoon: a face mask. Come Monday morning when our alarm goes off, we’re instantly we can go back to Sunday afternoon when we were lazing with a mask on and book in hand. Since our love of masking knows no bounds, we didn’t think we could find someone who loves the skin care ritual more than we do, but Gwyneth Paltrow has proved us wrong. While we all know that no good masking session is complete without a selfie, Paltrow has upped the ante by exclusively sharing this GIF of how she masks.
Gwyneth’s mask of choice? Goop by Juice Beauty’s Exfoliating Instant Facial ($125; shop.goop.com). Part of the actress-turned-lifestyle-guru’s first skin care collection, this all-natural mask is packed with alpha and beta hydroxy acids that sweep away dead skin cells and vitamin B5 to revive dehydrated complexions. Even better: As Gwyneth demonstrates in the GIF above, it miraculously rejuvenates skin in three minutes flat. We wouldn’t normally condone attempting to mask when you’re trying to get ready for the day, but this efficient one makes it actually possible. (If you don’t hit snooze.)
If you’re looking for us, we’ll be masking, and trying to figure out how to make a GIF as cute as Gwyneth’s.
