Gabrielle Union just casually wore a face mask in public, and we're here for it
We officially have the secret to Gabrielle Union’s radiant skin—and no, it’s surprisingly not a tropical holiday. ICYMI, Gabrielle Union hilariously meandered through the airport yesterday wearing a camel-colored wool coat, chic braids, and—wait for it—a sheet mask. *So* casual.
Yes, you heard that right: The actress departed for the #WadeWorldTour (Read: vacay with her hubby—OK, so there is some holidaying involved) and had no intention of placing her #selfcaresunday routine on pause. She posted a video to Instagram in which she’s wearing a Joanna Vargas Face Mask en route to her destination. And it makes sense, as travel can really wreak havoc on your skin.
Union’s sheet mask is courtesy of bicoastal celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas, who’s responsible for the glow-up of a slew of Hollywood stars, including Elisabeth Moss, Maggie Gyllenhall, Naomi Watts, Mandy Moore, Debra Messing, Karli Kloss, Jessica Alba, and Mindy Kaling. The fact that Union also raved about the face mask in a few Instagram stories—and, no, they weren’t hashtagged as sponsored—also shows that she loves the product enough to share it with her fans, despite the hefty price tag.
So what makes these sheet masks so incredible? The masks are infused with a ton of good-for-your-skin ingredients, like vitamins A, C, and E, anti-aging peptides, hydrating hyaluronic acid, and anti-inflammatory niacinamide.
They also boast organic botanicals and extracts that work to moisturize, plump, brighten, and calm even acne-prone skin, and help to minimize fine lines and wrinkles.
Plus, the Joanna Vargas face masks are super travel-friendly since they come in mess-free individual packs. Just take Union’s cue and pack one in your purse or carry-on for your next trip to ensure that your skin stays hydrated mid-flight or slap one on at your Airbnb or hotel after you land to curb jetlag.
Not only are they a luxurious treat for your skin, but they actually deliver a serious glow after one use.
Allow the mask to seep into your face for 15 minutes, and massage the remaining serum into your skin once removing the mask.
The Joanna Vargas Glow to Go Face Mask Set includes five different sheet masks you can try. The Eden Instant Lift Face Mask plumps skin, minimizes wrinkles, and adds a youthful glow; the Forever Glow Anti-Aging Face Mask hydrates and diminishes fine lines; the Dawn Face Mask gently exfoliates for a soft, smooth complexion; the Twilight Face Mask deep conditions, repairs and strengthens, and fights breakouts; and the Bright Eye Hydrating Face Mask brightens and firms the delicate under-eye area, while reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
The next time you’re settling in for a Netflix binge, prepping for a special occasion, or simply wanting to give your skin an extra dose of hydration to combat dry winter flakes, reach for this luxurious mask to revive and refresh. And if you’re traveling and want to treat your skin on the road, just embrace Union’s zero-effs-given attitude, slap the mask on your face, and relax.
