Skin has a way of taking stress personally, getting a little pale and lifeless when you’ve been traveling or working too hard.
Still, given the right coaxing — like this pristinely pure herbal facial mask — it can bounce back brilliantly. Dr. Hauschka is a decades-old German skincare company that designs formulas to stimulate the skin to heal itself. This particular mask is especially good for bringing tired faces back to life with a combination of herbal oils that soothe irritated tissues and improve circulation. Sustained use can even help soften scars from acne or sun damage. Combine a treatment with a hot bath and a good night’s sleep and you might not recognize yourself in the morning. Available at many natural food stores and pharmacies; $48 for a 1-ounce tube. Learn more about the company’s holistic skincare practices at www.drhauschka.com.
