"I'm so tired; I pulled another all-nighter," you'll say.
"But your skin says otherwise -- it's all radiant and glowy," they'll say. And just like that, your face is a liar, all deceptively smug and happy like it had a full night of Zs, when it totally didn't. True story.
That's what happens if you use Rodial Super Acids X-Treme Hangover Mask ($56 at murale.ca and nordstrom.com) the morning after. (No over-imbibing required, of course -- just sleep deprivation, or general dullness of complexion.) In about seven minutes total, it takes dull, flaky skin to smooth, bright and ready for serum and post-moisturizer glow.
Suitable for weekly use as well as need-to-look-good emergencies, the Rodial Super Acids X-treme Hangover Mask is clay-based, and dosed with glycolic and fruit acids as well as peptides and probiotics. And it's dead easy to use. Apply on cleansed skin, let it sit for at least five minutes. Once the mask is dry, gently rub it off your skin with your fingertips (key exfoliating move), then rinse any residue away. Et voilà. Fibber-face.
