Seeking to Halt Oily Skin Post-Workout?

Let me introduce you to one of my most effective skin tips -- Mario Badescu's Drying Mask.

I am not sure how many women outside of New York City are familiar with Mario Badescu, either the no-frill spa or the reasonably priced beauty products (which are usually available for purchase now in Ulta stores in addition to the Mario Badescu website).

I use several Mario Badescu products, and this drying mask is one of my post-workout favorites.  The mask is sulfur based and absolutely zaps oil... along with any pimples that are caused by greasy post-sweat skin.  After a particularly grueling workout, I relax by putting a layer of this mask on my face, then retreat back to the living room to stretch my tired muscles while it dries.  By the time I have cooled down, the drying mask is ready to be washed off, and glowing skin awaits!

This product is more expensive than drugstore products -- $18 -- but a little goes a long way, and it is still far less expensive than many department store or Sephora-sold masks.

I hope I have convinced some of you to give Mario Badescu products a try!
