1.Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Sheet Mask gently calms irritated, stressed, or sunburned skin, as well as acne, redness, and shaving irritation with ingredients like willow bark. Not impressed? It also helps lower the skin's temperature with erythritol, a type of sugar, and is made from bamboo charcoal to clear out pores. Bam. *mic drop*
2.Or, try Klairs Calming Cream, which does all of the same things while also hydrating and looking pretty in midnight blue. The main ingredient derives from chamomile oil and gives the cream its ~magical~ color.

5.Mediheal Tea Tree Sheet Mask balances and clarifies in a 15-minute treatment using herbal extracts like willow bark, rosemary, and tea tree oil. Chamomile and Asiatic pennywort calm redness. The cool thing is that the Mediheal logo on the mask becomes more visible as the 15-minute treatment completes, acting as an "indicator" for when you can take it off!
6.Neogen Cica Micellar Cleansing Foam keeps acne, redness, inflammation, and dryness at bay with cica, a compressed and more concentrated version of green tea, and madecassoside, which soothes and deeply hydrates so you're not left with that stripped, tight feeling.

It also helps quell inflammation and restores flaky, chapped areas. A true do-it-all!
8.Son & Park Beauty Water is super versatile: this cleansing water tones, mildly exfoliates with willow bark and papaya, cleans away grime, refreshes and soothes with lavender and rosewater, and resets the skin's natural pH level. You'll see brighter skin, smoother texture, and easier absorption of other skincare products. What a ~beauty~ indeed.
9.A cool mist humidifier adds moisture into the air (and therefore into your skin) to help dryness and irritation overnight so you can wake up nice and dewy. Me: *adds to cart.*

13.Too Cool For School's Rules of Mastic Recovery Balm uses masticure, a concentrated active ingredient from the mastic tree, to repair and soothe skin that's damaged from moisture loss and external and environmental stressors.
