I think we all love putting a face mask on during our “me time/DIY spa day at home” at the end of a long day. Pampering ourselves and taking care of our face is priority No.1 if we want to feel good, refreshed and beautiful. In this Face Mask Beauty Edit, I chose 5 face masks with different properties and benefits for just about anyone. Let the “me time” begin!
This one is a tightening and firming mask and it’s one of the coolest masks I’ve ever tried. My favorite at the moment. As it dries, the mask turns white to metallic silver and the removal isn’t the typical “wash your face” process. You apply the mask, leave it on for 20-30 minutes and then you peel it off from the edges. The mask smells nice and as soon as I applied it, I felt a warming sensation. Honestly, my skin felt a lot firmer and rejuvenated after the application. It’s also the most expensive face mask I’ve ever bought so just so you know, it ain’t cheap…but it’s worth investing in one good face mask especially if it defies gravity (hence the name) and makes my face look younger (If you’re like me and you can’t stand aging!).
Another face mask in the “I refuse to age” category, this one is an essential. You want to give your face a boost of collagen once in a while (or ideally every week) to improve your face’s elasticity. Collagen helps to plump and smooth fine lines plus it gives you firmer and smoother skin.
A clay mask is what you need for a good deep-cleanse of your skin. This one is purple clay but you can find different colors of clay and they all have different properties. The purple clay is for moisturizing and smoothing your skin and it’s enriched with edelweiss extract (which has antioxidant and anti-aging properties). This one will be handy during wintertime, especially if your skin gets dry like me!
Another one but with rose clay, I use this one regularly. It has mediterranean rose clay to purify and refine pores, Canadian willowherb that helps to counteract changes in skin tone and exfoliating jojoba beads to refine the skin’s texture. This mask performs double duties; it helps to gently deep clean your skin while refining its texture too.
This face mask is another go-to product like the clay mask above but this one has active charcoal, so it’s ultra-purifying; it will absorb all the dirt from your pores, which purifies your skin, cleans your pores and lets your skin breathe. In this mask, you get bamboo charcoal that acts like a magnet to draw out pore-clogging dirt, oil, and impurities and also the White China Clay clears the skin of excess oil and dirt.
I buy these eye masks from Sephora quite often since they are so affordable. It was my first time trying the avocado one. This one is for nourishing and repairing the area around the eyes. I like to try a different one every time because I like to switch it up, you know? Next one I’m trying is an algae eye mask, good for tonifying and detoxifying. I like waking up and putting the eye mask on and drinking my coffee, it’s a good way to start off your day and skincare regimen in the morning. If I have an eye mask on hand I’ll definitely use one before a shoot.
Hope this Beauty Edit will help you find the best mask for your needs!
