Why You Need to Buy Lena Dunham’s Out-There Acne Mask
Nothing Lena Dunham ever does is in any way conventional, amiright? When she’s not pushing the envelope on Lenny’s Letter or with her online shop, you can bet she’s at home getting ready to make her next mark on the world. Unlike most celebs who get camera-ready with expensive facials and spa treatments, though, Dunham recently posted an Insta update about an at-home acne treatment she’s obsessed with. It’s the Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask ($35), and it’s crazy futuristic looking. Here are a few reasons you’ll want to get your own RN.

Saw the ad for the light therapy acne mask and became obsessed so when we got home from our journey it was waiting on my side of the bed. Thank you @jackantonoff, even if you just did it to amuse yourself. #notanad #justapsycho UPDATE: for those thinking this is a fancy awards season prep tool to the stars, it's Neutrogena and it's $35.

1. Light therapy is the future. Your facialist has probably waved a little LED light over your T-Zone before for a reason. Light therapy works with a two-step approach: The blue light targets those pesky acne-causing bacteria and the red light works to reduce inflammation. The science might be a little complicated, but bottom line, you’ll probably walk away with better skin after using this mask.
2. It fits into your usual beauty routine. No, you don’t have to sit for hours with a funky-looking mask on your face. The directions recommend cleansing your skin per your usual routine, then putting this baby on for just 10 minutes while you chillax out after a long day. It even has an automatic shut off after your trip to the future is complete. Done and done. (Photo via Neutrogena)
3. It’s a steal. Facials and expensive derma treatments can cost hundreds of dollars. Sad face. It’s incredible that Neutrogena was able to create a product like this for $35. Now we can all afford better skin FTW by just stopping at the drugstore.
