Overall, I have normal to dry skin that hasn’t caused me too many grievances over the years, but as I’ve been getting older I am making a greater effort at maintaining a beauty routine. One step that I’ve taken is to add a few face masks to the roster, especially face masks for an instant glow!
This has definitely earned its place as my favorite part of my routine because it feels like such a luxury. I love treating myself to a glass of wine, lighting a calendar and throwing on my go-to face mask – and you should too! Afterwards, skin immediately feels smoother and hydrated!
I used to be guilty of viewing face masks as a nice-to-have item instead of a necessity. Also, I don’t know the last time you shopped for a face mask, but they’ve really raised the bar! (I was also guilty of trying some questionable DIY masks that never quite turned out and did absolutely nothing for me.) But since using a few varieties regularly as recommended (typically 1-2 times a week) I’ve seen a magnificent difference. Now I’m collecting them like Pokemon … gotta catch ‘em all.
Especially as we head into the colder months of the year, I will be leaning heavily on my moisturizing masks. I’ve outlined three amazing face masks that won’t break the bank and will leave you with glowing skin (priced low to high.)
Formula 10.0.6 Get Your Glow On Skin-Brightening Peel-Off Mask
Whenever my skin appears dull, I grab this face mask for an instant glow. All you have to do is smooth on and peel off to rejuvenate your skin. It makes my skin feel so smooth and helps even my skin tone. After applying this face mask for 10-15 minutes in the evening, I never need to apply make up the next day because my skin looks incredible. I do recommend applying with a brush as the product is a bit sticky and thick.
The best part? This face mask won’t break the bank! It’s only $7 which is such a steal.
Skinfood Black Sugar Mask
Everyone needs an exfoliator in their rotation of face masks! This one is budget-friendly and utilizes a natural exfoliant – sugar. It’s grainy texture gently removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores. This mask doesn’t dry, so remember that when applying and use with a bit of water. I really like to work it into my skin before letting it sit.
Origins Drink Up 10 Minute Mask to Quench Skin’s Thirst
This one is for my fellow Northerners that are bracing for the winter months ahead. The blistering cold wreaks havoc on my skin, but this face mask is a game changer! I’ve always heard amazing things about Origins brand, so I picked up a customizable skin care package from Sephora that included this face mask in a full-size bottle along with two sample sized cleanser and moisturizer.
When you need an instant dose of hydration, apply a generous amount of this face mask onto your skin and leave for 10 minutes or more then wipe clean with a warm towel. It leaves skin refreshed, soft and fresh.
