Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

It’s almost Halloween! Tomorrow we’ll be presenting Panties Inferno at The Thalia! This is a busy time of year for burlesque performers and often involves even more and heaver makeup than we usually wear. Here’s your tip:

After Halloween, treat yourself to a mask!

Not that kind of mask. A soothing facial mask. (If you want to see that kind of mask, you can check out Devastsia’s new number in Panties Inferno tomorrow.)

All that makeup is tough on your skin, so pamper yourself a bit. There are all sorts of masks available commercially, with ingredients like green tea, Dead Sea mud, or French clay. There are also some truly disturbing-looking sheet masks that are rather popular now. Or you can make one at home with kitchen ingredients like oatmeal or yogurt or mashed strawberries. Honey and ground almonds is a good one — you can put some on your face and the leftovers on your toast! You can find plenty of recipes on-line.

Start by steaming your face. Pour some boiling water into a bowl and hold your face over it for a few minutes. For extra steaminess, tent a towel over your head. Then smear or press or pat your mask in place. If you’re using something with crunchy bits, like sugar or the aforementioned almonds, make sure not to scrub it around; the roughness could make tiny tears in your skin. Leave the mask on for a little bit while you relax. Wash it off with warm water. Spritz with some toner and enjoy how fresh your face feels!
