We're slowly easing into the rainy season, with the midday showers and late night thunderstorms. You're probably still recovering from your out-of-town adventures with the fam or your squad. If you stayed out in the sun a little longer than usual—sometimes forgetting to reapply sunscreen, admit it—you might be suffering from a bit of a burn. But what if we told you that there's a mask you can put on for just 5 minutes (5!!!) that will help soothe and heal your sun-damaged skin?


Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque, P1150 (28ml), Kiehl's

Meet the Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque. This gel mask is formulated from the same Calendula flower petals that the brand has introduced to its customers since the '60s. This particular flower aids in skin healing and regeneration due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. 

And if you're worried that it'll just add more time to your already-perfected skin care regimen, you'll be happy to know that you only need an extra 5 minutes for this mask! Slather it on after washing your face and keep it on for as long as your favorite Harry Styles song. Use it up to 3 times a week, especially on days when your skin is feeling extra dry—from your daily commute, your full days in school, or even just a long day hanging out at an airconditioned mall.
