Good morning. Today, I wanted to share three amazing face masks for those who want to achieve glowy + healthy-looking skin. These are easy masks that you can make in the comfort of your own home. If you are anything like me and like to wait till the very last minute with everything, these are perfect for you. Most of these ingredients you will already have in your pantry or spice drawers.
I use to believe that you had to go and get a “professional” facial to get the benefits of good skincare. That is the furthest from the truth. When in fact, some ingredients used in these masks are high in acidic potency + have soothing agents too. This is important because the acidic component helps to take away dry skin cells and blood circulation. While the soothing agents help to calm down anything irritating your skin. Both combined will help to exfoliate, plump, and soften the appearance of your skin.
When I’m getting ready for a night out, I love the look of glowy, healthy skin. It has always been my thing ever since I was a little girl. In my mind, glowy skin always looked better and more appealing than the dehydrated look. What is your preference?
In my years of doing these masks and playing spa in the comfort of my own home – I’ve seen positive changes with my skin. I just turned the B-I-G 40 on September first and I have to say, my skin has never looked better. I attest to my skincare routine and consistency.
The real truth is, there are facial masks for absolutely anything in regards to your skin (acne-prone, hydration, brightening, lifting, firming, etc…). If you were to open my skincare drawer you will see an array of really good ones. Boy, do I love that drawer!! Since we are headed strongly into the fall season where the air is dryer and the temperatures get cooler – hydration is key. Along with masking, I also enjoy an eye mask while the mask is going to work on my face. It is perfect for depuffing and just feels darn good on your eyes. I especially love how there is a cloth side so you don’t need to add an extra towel or washcloth. It’s already built-in!
