I will say I have an obsession with masks and do it about two to three times a week and all different types too. Now some of you may not have tried on a mask and you should.
Facial masks are amazing for treating the skin and more affordable than having to go to the spa frequently. There is a variety of facial masks that help treat any skin concerns like oil control, hydrating the skin, minimizing pores and removing impurities clarifying your skin. Not only does it help treat your skin, but you will feel and look good afterward.

When I got into facial masks, the first one I purchased was the Luminizing Black Charcoal Mask by Boscia. I loved the sensation of peeling it off and seeing everything it pulled off. Strangely it was interesting. The mask is rich in minerals and charcoal. As you know, activated charcoal has so many benefits that even celebrities are into anything charcoal. The mask is going to help reduce the appearance of pores, firms the skin, removes any impurities and dead skin. All you have to do is apply a thin layer over clean, dry skin and leave for 25 minutes and peel it off. Interested? Well, you can find this mask at Sephora for $34.

M.A.C cosmetics also has a great charcoal mask if you feel like peeling is too much. It’s called Mineralize, Reset and Revive Charcoal Mask. This mask has bamboo charcoal and mineral-rich white clay that purifies pores, minimizing blackheads and prevents future blemishes. It also gets deep into the skin removing impurities and excess oil leaving the skin more clarified and smooth. This is the mask that I use before my makeup because it is less time and my skin is smoother and clearer allowing my makeup to glide on and appear flawless. All you need is a thin layer all over the face, leave on for five to 10 minutes or until completely dry and wash it off with warm water. You can get the mask for $31.

Glam Glow is a popular brand that has about nine different masks and all target different things. They are much pricier yet worth it. I have tried a few of them, and they are amazing. I will share a few of them, and the prices range from $49 to $79.

One of the masks from Glam Glow that everyone was going crazy for was the Glitter Mask. I got to try it and saw results right when I peeled it off. The Glitter mask will visibly firm, lift, tighten and tone your skin. I will say it is best to moisturize right after, because it can make your skin feel dry. Apply a good layer all over the face, and the glitter may feel like it is poking you, but the glitter is safe and just for fun. Leave it on until it dries and peel it off. Make sure you moisturize especially if you have dry skin already.

Thirsty mud is a mask that’s more for dry skin because it restores and replenishes moisture to the skin. It can be used for all skin types because not only does it provide hydration, but it contains Hydra Pack that can leave the skin soft, and supple while Green Energy leaves the skin feeling smooth and energizes the skin for a healthy glowing look. During the daytime apply an even layer all over the face and leave it on for 10 to 20 minutes and wipe off with a tissue then massage it in with warm water. If your using this at night, also apply an even layer and leave it on to infuse and you’ll wake up with plenty of hydration.

Lastly, there’s a much more affordable mask you can get on Amazon for $13.99 that has five stars. I got the chance to try it, and it’s amazing. It is called Dead Sea mask by HeaBea Body. The mask comes with a brush and sponge to help you prevent using your fingers that could have bacteria. That’s smart! If you have acne concerns, this is the solution for you.

The mask absorbs all the toxins, dirt, dead skin and excess oil and sebum that causes acne and blackheads. It minimizes pores and helps clear acne scars and dark spots as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. You can also use this for the face and body.

Masks are amazing, fun and relaxing. They are great for your skin, and there are so many out there that can do so many things for you and not all are expensive. Facial masks can also be fun as an activity you can do with your friends or relaxing when you have a day to yourself. Not only will you feel good, but you will a see a difference in your skin.

Everyone wants to look good without makeup so why not give masks a try. I provided a few of the top best selling masks and most that I have tried and can say they work wonders. What mask are you going to try?
