It’s St. Patrick’s Day weekend, and we all wish we could be out hitting up the local parade, then the local bars for some fun times with friends. This year, however, it looks like we’re going to need to find a new way to celebrate. We thought long and hard about how our readers could safely celebrate the holiday at-home - the result? A green skincare-themed video call party between you and your friends!
Here’s how you could set up your own fun-filled green skincare event. Send an invite to all your best friends using your video call platform of choice, then gather your go-to skincare products, some snacks, and your favorite drink.
You can start off the party by sharing your skincare routine. Once you arrive at the sheet mask step, pull out your drinks and snacks because it’s time for some fun activities. Chat it up, screen share a movie you love or listen to music while doing self mani-pedis. While sheet masks only need to be left on for 10 - 20 minutes, you can never go wrong with some extra moisture. After that’s done, finish up your skincare routine and wrap it up for the night.
Don’t have a list of go-to skincare? Not a problem - as usual, we got you! Check out some of our holy grail skincare products. The theme is - all the best green skincare.
Made using bamboo water and berry ingredients, this cleansing foam’s natural ingredients work to give you a deep cleanse, removing makeup and dirt from your pores. Bamboo also has a softening effect that leaves your skin looking fresh and healthy.
This calming green toner is A-mazing at eliminating dead skin cells. Its natural AHA, BHA, PHA, and triple green tea ingredients will leave your skin looking fresher than fresh. Wondering what triple green tea ingredients means? We got you! This toner contains green tea extract, green tea water, and green tea leaves. Green tea is known for its pore tightening, moisturizing, and dirt removal effects, and this toner aims to deliver that in spades.
Up next, we got some more green tea magic for you. This one comes in sheet mask form. It contains Catechin that comes directly from green tea and helps balance moisture and oil on the skin. On top of that, it has ingredients like adenosine and niacinamide that fight wrinkles and even out your complexion.
Don’t forget to give some love to your eyes, too. For this step, we have to recommend the Pale Green Pastel Eye Mask. It’s full of soothing and calming ingredients that are known to be so good for your skin - like Centella Asiatica, calamine, and allantoin. Then doubles it up with hydrogel, which is a super powerful moisturizer. For a final touch, they include Borpirin to improve skin elasticity.
As the name suggests, this serum is all about keeping your skin calm and beautiful. It has mugwort to soothe your skin, Centella Asiatica to reduce visible signs of sensitivity (redness and itchy skin), and panthenol to help your skin fight against external stressors which helps keep your skin barrier healthy.
This moisturizer is lightweight, long-lasting, non-irritating, and best of all it smells good. Its super hydrating yet quick absorbent formula helps create a layer of moisture on the skin to prevent dehydration. This part is vital, as you want to make sure your skin holds onto all that good stuff from your skincare routine.
