We don’t always have the time or cash to visit the spa for a couple hours. There is another way to feel refreshed at home! Pour yourself a glass of wine, get cozy, and try some of my favorite masks available ranging from drug store to luxury.
Depending on your skin type and concerns the right face mask can really do what you want it to. Remove excess oils, shrink pores, brighten and tighten etc. Doing a face mask once a week is so beneficial not only for your skin but for your over all health.
You will feel relaxed and stress free from even that 15 to 20 mins you have it on your face, and give yourself that time!
I got a sample of the HERBIVORE “Blue Tansy” resurfacing clarity mask in my Play! By Sephora box, it is now on my want list. This gel mask has azulene in it which is the active ingredient in chamomile. Just like a cup of chamomile tea would do for you this mask will soothe and calm redness and help to repair irritated skin.
SKINFOOD “Egg White Pore Mask” I’ve always struggled with large pores. Don’t let the “egg yoke” scare you away, this mask is really a white clay mask which helps shrink pores. You will see this mask sink into your pores and that means its doing its job by getting rid of the oils that can clog them. It is $10.50 at Ulta Beauty and I notice a huge difference in my pore size when doing this mask once a week. An egg white is also packed with protein which also has huge moisturizing benefits.

I purchased this mask at the spa on the Island Princess, the first cruise ship I ever worked on as a vocalist. It has been my go to mask for years. The smell is so calming. It has 100% essential oils in it, lavender, rosemary and thyme which will cleanse and re-balance a dull complexion.
This Korean beauty line has by far my favorite sheet masks. They have the cutest packaging and are no doubt affordable. The “I’m Real” Rice Sheet Mask is perfect for breakouts, which we all occasionally get. It will also help your skin to feel glowing! Don’t worry about looking silly in this one, its less mess and no wash after you have it on for 15 to 20 mins. #stressfree
