The Power of Face Masks
Over the past few months, face masks have become so much more important to us in our skin care routine and have completely changed our skin for the better! We’ve always loved a good face mask but only used them here and there and not so much on a regular basis like we should have been. Lately, we have been using masks 2 to 3 times a week and have even been using multiple masks in one night. Our skin has never felt better and we’ve noticed a huge improvement in the texture of our skin to the decrease of fine lines and redness. Pampering your skin makes such a difference so taking a few extra minutes to slap on a face mask can really help improve your skin. There are a ton of different options when it comes to masks, from sheet, clay, to peel off and more you can definitely find one for every need and purpose. Here are a few of our favorites, what are some of yours?
Skederm– Sheet masks are so simple and easy to use and are typically our favorite to use before makeup application. Recently we’ve been loving the Skederm Snail Jelly Face Mask, and yes it actually has snail secretion in it! Don’t let that scare you because the secretion filtrate actually is filled with incredible nutrients and have been shown to help with anti-aging, rosacea, scars and so much more. We love this sheet mask particularly because it really helps to keep our skin feeling moisturized during these dry winter months and they sheet masks contain vitamins A, C and E which help balance your skin tone. You can use these sheet masks 2-3 times a week. Shop the mask HERE
