Face masks are such a fun spa-like treatment to do at home. I have tried many different kinds. These five are what I use during the chilly months to help hydrate or exfoliate dry skin. They are in no particular order!
1. Freeman Facial Peel-Off Mask Cucumber- Peel-off masks are great to help clear out your pores and remove dry skin. This makes my face look fresh and feels cool on the skin. Once it dries completely you peel it off, which is really fun. You need to be careful not to get it in your eyebrows or too close to your hairline because it can be painful if it gets stuck in your hair. If you are sensitive to scents it might be a bit strong but I enjoy the cucumber aroma.
2. L’Occitane Instant Hydration Mask– This is a unique mask for when my face is really dry and sensitive. It’s a hydrating mask that you can leave-on! It’s a gel formula that feels very soothing as soon as you put it on. It has a light herbal scent. When my skin is extra dry and I know makeup won’t look smooth a thin layer works great under my SPF.
3. nu-pore Collagen Essence Mask– These are fully saturated sheets and extremely refreshing. Fair warning you end up looking a little scary and your dog might bark at you. I have used all of them and they all do the same thing but smell different. This one is super revitalizing and plumps the skin. You massage the extra serum in once you remove the sheet. My face looks noticeably brighter and firmer the morning after I use these.
4. Queen Helene Hydrating Olive Oil Masque– This is a less expensive alternative to the L’Occitane Instant Hydration Mask. It is a whipped gel formula that provides comfort to parched skin. You don’t leave this one on though. After I remove it my face feels hydrated and my skin tone is even. I don’t know how but it helps with the redness from dry skin too.
5. Ren Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask– This mask is more intense than all the others. It is fantastic at removing dead skin and revealing your radiance. You use a gentle exfoliating cleanser before application. It can sting and it’s important to test this on a small patch of skin (you should do that with all of these really) before applying it to your whole face. My skin feels smoother and my pores are tighter.
