The Summer humidity and heat have recently been doing a number on my complexion, causing me to break out more than usual. One night when it was particularly bad, I decided to treat my skin to some R & R by applying a few masks. I hadn’t used the powerful T.L.C. Drunk Elephant Sukari Babyfacial ($80) in a while and thought that the 25 percent of AHA and 2 percent of BHA could bring some of the bumps in my skin to a head and smooth out the texture of my skin a bit.

I smeared the thick liquid on my skin, set my timer for the recommended 20 minutes, and watched some YouTube videos while my face tingled. After washing it off and gently patting my skin dry, I reached for the new moisturizing mask I brought home, the Sisley Paris Velvet Sleeping Mask With Saffron Flowers ($140), in the hopes it would ease my skin. I rubbed the soothing cream, which contains honey and shea butter, into my face and headed to bed.

In the morning, I noticed my complexion looked clearer and more bouncy and wondered if my new regimen was to thanks.

My skin looks so glowy that I intend on keeping this in my weekly routine.
