Who doesn't love a quick fix for dull, dry, and/or irritated skin? While there's plenty of great skincare routines you can indulge in on a daily basis, applying face masks every so often can help give your skin the extra love it craves. From clay masks, sheet masks, mud masks, and more, there's a wide variety of options on the market. You can choose a mask based on your skincare needs, time constraints, or lifestyle. Whatever it is, just make sure you pick one you love and that provides benefits specific to you.
1. Les Naly White Clay Face Mask
Perfect for sensitive skin and animal lovers, the White Clay Face Mask from Les Naly doesn't strip skin of natural oils like other clays and is cruelty-free. To use the mask, which is made in small batches in Maryland, mix 1 to 2 tablespoons of clay with 1 to 2 tablespoons of water in a bowl until it becomes pasty. Then, apply the clay mask with fingers or a brush. The mask will provide a mild exfoliation, without being too harsh. After 15 to 20 minutes, use warm water to rinse and experience supple and refreshed skin.
2. Tiger Face Mask
Have some fun with your skin care routine by using this Animal Tiger Wrinkle Mask Sheet by SNP. Different from clay masks, a sheet mask is simple to apply and remove. Plus, this sheet mask, which features a tiger face design, has a lot of personality. The formula used in the mask boosts skin cells with elastic to leave your face radiant. It also features coconut water to reduce wrinkles and replenish moisture. Win-win, right?
3. Rose Face Mask from Fresh
One of my favorite face masks, the Rose Face Mask from Fresh smells amazing. Suitable for a variety of skin types — normal, oily, combination, dry, sensitive – this hydrating gel face mask cures dryness, redness, and reduces pore size. In order to deliver top notch moisturizing properties, the formula is infused with real rose petals, pure rosewater, and smart algae. Lev Glazman, co-founder of Fresh, calls the face mask's main ingredient — rose — "nature's wonder," so you know they must be on to something.
4. Dr. Jart+ Dermask Micro Jet Clearing Solution
Dr. Jart+ does not mess around, so bust out the Dermask Micro Jet Clearing Solution when you're really feeling down about a breakout or skin blunder. With the pill on the packaging as a sign, this ultra-fine microfiber sheet mask acts like dermatologist prescribed medicine for your face. Packed with glutathione, an antioxidant that soothes redness and inflamed skin, the mask is designed to help control blemishes and uneven skin tone.
5. GlamGlow Super Mud Clearing Treatment
Also best for those less than pleasant bad skin days, GlamGlow's Super Mud Clearing Treatment is heavy duty. The formula features a scientifically advanced treatment to fight common skin concerns such as breakouts, discoloration, black and white heads, razor bumps, and in-grown hair. The treatment goes on dark and wet then dries into a stone-colored hard shell. You'll definitely notice it's working its magic as the formula settles into your skin and the millions of tiny pores on your face grow visible. However, once you rinse, you'll feel nothing but smooth skin. Think of this solution as a super deep cleanse for your face, and use it only when necessary.
