Is stress and lack of sleep bullying your skin? Complexion's drawn and dehydrated? Eye area seems more tired than usual, darker -- and good God, are those more wrinkles? And you have to look radiant tonight for a shindig?

Quick, reach for a Clinique Moisture Surge Facial Sheet Mask ($37.50/6 packets). A face-size cotton sheet with cutouts for eyes, nose and mouth, the mask is pre-saturated with intensely moisturizing ingredients such as aloe leaf water and sodium hyaluronate (which can hold 1,800 times its weight in water), calming cucumber extract, and antioxidants Vitamin E, caffeine, algae extract and red tea leaf extract. Apply to cleansed face and relax for 10 minutes as the mask cools, soothes and hydrates to soften and plump skin and minimize fine lines. Remove mask, massage residual moisture into skin, admire your renewed complexion, and get ready to dazzle your crowd.

The Moisture Surge Refreshing Eye Masks ($31.50/10 packets) are particularly good for recharging exhausted eyes, and contain de-puffing as well as moisturizing ingredients. Keep some in your desk -- if your office has a door and you've got 10 minutes, they're dead easy to use and wonderfully restorative.

Guess what I'm doing now?

Clinique Moisture Surge Facial Sheet Masks and Refreshing Eye Masks are available at Clinique counters; in Canada, exclusively at Holt Renfrew.
