There are many elements to having great skin, but one of the ways you can help make your skin as good as possible is by using face masks. I’ve used loads of different ones over the years, so today I’m sharing my favorites. Let me know your opinion on these and share your favorites!
Clay and Mud Masks
Clay and mud masks are great because they feel like they really get into your skin and help with whatever their purpose is. Depending on the mask, you either wear it until it all dries or for a specified amount of time.
Drugstore – Biore Self Heating One Minute Mask and Freeman Avocado & Oatmeal Clay Mask. The Biore mask really cleans your skin with charcoal, and I can see and feel a difference. It’s also awesome because you only wear it for one minute and you buy a package of 4 individually wrapped masks, which makes it feel like you aren’t buying more mask that you’ll ever need. I’m also a big fan of the Freeman masks, which I’ve been using for years. They have loads of different types of masks, and the Avocado & Oatmeal is my favorite because it cleans and tightens my skin.
High-End – Boscia Luminizing Black Mask, Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask, and Origins Original Skin. I’m actually not sure if the Boscia mask falls under this category because it’s a peel-off mask, but this is easily in my top 3 favorite face masks of all types of face masks. It really cleans your skin and reduces the size and visibility of your pores. Another good mask for cleaning your skin is the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask which also reduces your pores and clears your skin. If I had to choose between it and the Bosica mask, I would choose the Boscia, but this mask is right up there. The Origins Original Skin mask is better for exfoliating and making skin look as good as new. If you have fewer problems with cleaning your skin and are looking more for a mask that brightens your skin, this is the one you want to choose.
I. Love. Sheet. Masks. They’re so much fun and they help your skin without all the time that can go into waiting for a clay or mud mask to dry. Like with other types of masks, you can get a mask for pretty much every type of skin concern. These generally do less deep cleaning than clay masks do, but they can help a lot with surface issues.
To be completely honest, I’ve never used any drugstore sheet masks, so I don’t want to lie and tell you to check out some that I’ve never actually tried myself. I have heard really good things about the Yes To masks of all kinds, as well as Pretty Animalz by Look Beauty, although that might be because they look like the cutest sheet masks of all time.
My personal favorite sheet masks are from Sephora Collection. They have face masks, under-eye masks, hand masks, and lip masks. Each mask comes in a variety of options so you can choose the skin concern that you want to work on. I tend to go with brightening masks for the face and eyes because my skin tends to be dull. If you wear a lot of lip products, I really suggest you check out the lip mask, especially if you tend to wear matte products.
