Face Masks – Friday Favorites

There is something relaxing about slapping a face mask on, letting it dry, and refreshing feeling of washing it off. A spa is nice, but there’s something special about binging on Netflix under your favorite cozy blanket while you improve your skin. I love indulging with cheaper versions to enjoy in my own home. Here are a few that I usually have in my medicine cabinet:

Clay Masks – Oily/Breakout Prone Skin
When I can feel a breakout coming on, these are the masks I reach for! The clay base in these absorb oils, and shrink any impending zits. The best spot treatment I found the the DIY combination of unrefined apple cider vinegar and Aztec healing clay. I always have this combo at hand. Just mix up an equal amount in the palm of your hand, let dry (about 20 minutes), and wash off. The GlamGlow and Origins masks are my go-to’s before events. They give me a refreshed glow and it makes everything look way better.

Exfoliating Masks – Dull Skin
When my skin is flaky, dry, or dull looking, I slather one of these masks on my face. 2 are fruit enzyme based, and gentle. One is acid based, a little stronger but the results are worth it. The last is a “scrubby” mask. It has a little charcoal to absorb oils like a clay mask, and sugar to gently exfoliate.

Soothing Masks – Dry and Redness-Prone Skin

These are the ideal masks when facing dryness and redness. Be it from sun exposure, windy weather or the cold, when your face is a little sensitive just because it feels like it, these masks help soothe issues while being gentle. Yogurt, aloe vera, and rosewater are great soothing ingredients. My favorite is Que Bella’s Deep Cleaning Aloe Vera Mask, but I couldn’t find a picture of it. It’s a cream formula so it’s not drying, and the aloe vera helps reduce redness every time I use it.
For the low key and in a rush gals. You can DIY a compressed paper mask so your skin absorbs the ingredients better. Two of the easiest paper masks ever? Chilled coconut water or a non alcoholic toner. Just soak the compressed paper mask tablet it water, watch it expand, separate it and place on your face for at least 5 minutes. Soothing, refreshing, and so easy!

Have you tried any of the above? What are your favorite masks?

    I really like the Lush fresh face masks. The only problem is they only last two weeks and you have to store them in the fridge 🙁

      I know! I don’t have a lush store around me so I get one every time I’m in a bigger city. I found out that they can last up to a month from a Lush rep, but I have pots of Brazened Honey and The Scared Truth that have been in my fridge for months. 🙁
