There are tons of gold facial masks on the market that has antibacterial properties and stimulates collagen production in the skin. As I was shopping, I saw a Korean “Ps… Golden Galaxy Peel of Mask” product that not only delivers the same benefits but also contains vitamin c, ginseng, and bergamot.

The benefits of each ingredient

Vitamin C is great for the skin! It will give you a more firm and plumped appearance. It also decreases wrinkles or fine-lines resulting in younger-looking skin. Vitamin C’s antioxidant properties also fade dark spots, repair and replace damaged skin cells. This ingredient should be the main focus of those who suffer from hyperpigmentation or melasma.

Ginseng is also very beneficial to the skin. It is known as an anti-aging ingredient because of the phytonutrients which help tone and brighten skin.

Another powerful component to this face mask is bergamot. Bergamot is a hybrid citrus between a lemon and an orange. Furthermore, because of it’s antiseptic and antibiotic properties it can easily remove bacteria from the skin. Vitamin C, Ginseng and Bergamot are key ingredients for clearing unwanted acne scars, discoloration, and blemishes.

When and how do I apply the face mask?

After removing my makeup, I apply a decent layer to the face avoiding the eyes, eyebrows and mouth area. The consistency of this product is very thick and can be messy so be careful. I leave the mask on my face for 15 minutes and gently peel. Once the mask is completely off my face, I wash away any excess using warm water. Below is a pic of “Ps… Golden Galaxy Metallic Peel Off Mask”, once dried and peeled from the face.

Best Poke Bowl Places In New York

Let's Poke

The fresh and natural flavors of a poke dish compel me to buy it every weekend. It’s safe to say that I am obsessed with this Hawaiian delicacy. Poke to me was a quick escape from reality. As you continue to read this post, you’ll discover all about poke and local poke restaurants in New York. Join the craze!

What is poke?

It’s a native appetizer or main course that consists of diced raw fish such as salmon or tuna in Hawaii. In other words, it’s one of the main dishes to many native Hawaiians. The word “poke” (poh-kay) means to slice or cut. Hawaiian poke is heavily influenced by Japanese and other Asian cuisines. Therefore, it represents the diverse culture of Hawaii. A poke bowl is made up of a base; rice, cubed sushi-grade raw fish, vegetables and Asian toppings such as seaweed or soy sauce.

Is poke healthy?

Yes, it is! Poke is one of the healthiest current food trends. It contains salmon and tuna which offer lean protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Four ounces of poke is under 150 calories. However, it should be eaten in moderation due to mercury poisoning but that’s with all seafood/fish!As

You must be hungry and thinking, “Is there poke near me?”.
