One of the best things you can do for your skin is to use face masks. Face masks are a fun and relaxing way to treat your skin to concentrated ingredients that nourish and soothe your skin. Masks come in a variety of formulas and treat a number of skin care concerns. The best part is, they always feel so decadent and satisfying that I think they should be a part of every girl’s skin care routine! If you’re new to face masks or you’re looking to try out some new ones, be sure and give this list a peek!
1 Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores
As I mentioned earlier, face masks do a variety of things and address a variety of issues. Origins’ Clear Improvement mask contains ingredients to help dig up dirt, toxins and anything else in your skin that could be clogging your pores. In addition to active charcoal, this mask also contains White China clay to absorb toxins and dissolve impurities. Good for all skin types.
2 Boots No7 Purifying Sauna Mask
Doesn’t the name of this face mask sound heavenly?! This purifying sauna mask works similarly to the facial mask above because it dissolves impurities and tightens pores but it also warms up on contact with water to open up your pores. This face mask is great for ladies with normal to combination skin, blemish-prone skin and oily skin.
3 Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask
This next facial mask is for those who are looking for a surge of moisture for their skin! This rich and creamy mask works to deeply penetrate your skin with moisture so you wake up with smooth, supple skin. Although this treatment is called a mask, there won’t be anything to remove when you wake up in the morning; your skin will absorb it all!
4 Queen Helene Grape Seed Extract Peel off Masque
Although Queen Helene’s Mint Julep masque is quite popular, I think their Grape Seed Extra Masque deserves some recognition, too! Grape seed extract is contains tons of antioxidants which help repair and protect skin as well as provide anti-aging benefits. This is a peel-off face mask so you can have fun peeling off the mask and freaking out your friends!
5 Kate Somerville Clearing Mask
Kate Somerville’s Clearing Mask describes itself as an intensive treatment mask for blemish-prone skin. This treatment can be used all over the face as a mask or used as a spot treatment for blemishes. It’s designed to heal blemishes, inflammation, reduce the appearance of enlarged pores and acne scars as well as prevent future blemishes.
6 Murad Age-Diffusing Firming Mask
If you’re looking for a face mask with anti-aging and hydrating benefits, check this baby out! Murad’s firming mask tightens and firms skin while restoring your skin’s natural contours and leaving your skin hydrated and soft. This mask is part of a three-step system but can be used on its own and will work just as well!
7 Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask
Some of these face masks cost a pretty penny but Neutrogena’s Clear Pore mask and cleanser is a fab bargain buy! I love multi-purpose products because they’re great for travel and you get two products in one! You can use this every day as a cleanser for acne-prone skin or as an intensive mask to deep clean your skin and control oil!
No matter what your skin type or issue, there’s a mask out there that can help! There are literally hundreds of masks out there ranging from sheet masks, cream masks and peel-off masks that all give your skin a powerful dose of nutrients in minutes so be sure to try them out!
