Mean Muggin'

As we round the corner on the precious last few weeks of summer, it's probably a good time to take stock of your skin. After all, if you've been lucky, it's been blasted with sun, sand and surf (and likely a beer or two) and is starting to show some signs of wear. Now, we're not telling you to cancel your plans tonight so you can sit on the couch with a gooey at-home spa treatment. We're simply suggesting that if you've never experienced the restorative properties of a discreetly applied face mask, perhaps it's time you add five minutes to your routine once a month. At least until you scrub the summer's abuse off your mug.

With nearly every airline imposing a baggage fee nowadays, if you can get away with flying with just a carry-on, do it.
