Solution: Send Your Skin To Rehab When You Need A Quick Fix

I've got a reunion coming up this fall, and of course I've already got my to-do list cooking: lose a few pounds, find a picture of the perfect haircut, come up with a super important-sounding way of describing my job… This big show is still months away, so I've got plenty of time to prep for perfection. Still, all of us will at some time encounter an event that we don't have time to plan for ("you want to meet for drinks… tonight?!"). When the occasional get-cute-quick situation arises, it's always a good idea to have a little bottle of miracle potion on hand, namely a quick detox mask that takes the day away in a hurry.


Best for a Quick Fix: Boscia's Clarifying Detox Mask ($22) does for your skin in five minutes what sleep and a packet of blotting papers could take all night to accomplish. Give your skin a balancing boost by absorbing impurities with a natural, preservative-free mix of kaolin clay and Phellodendron bark. Willhowherb acts as an anti-irritant, so your skin won't look like it's been put through the cosmetic ringer, even if you apply and rinse just moments before stepping out the door.

Best After a Day in the Great Outdoors: Sand, smog and sweat sure don't make for the greatest skincare regimen around, but that shouldn't keep you from living it up outdoors while the sun is shining. To combat beach-induced ickies and look fresh as a daisy for dinner, apply a thin coat of Renée Rouleau Detoxifying Mask (($31.50), made with bacteria-busting basil and tea tree oil. Your face will be smooth (thanks to the non-drying kaolin clay) and the added essential oils ensure you won't get that tight, cracked feeling that can be some masks' downfall.

Best for a Special Occasion: You've got your dress, your jewelry, your shoes, your mani and pedi… For a big night out, choose a detox mask that's just a short (and less risky) step down from hitting the med spa. Prescriptives Instant Gratification Skin Renewal Peel ($45) carries a fairly hefty price tag, but it's a luxury item you should keep in your beauty stash for nights when you really want your skin to shine. The dermabrasion-peel treatment has tiny microbeads that polish imperfections away and immediately give you a healthy, even glow.
