With every change of seasons, I like to take more time with my skin and add in a mask. There are various types of treatment masks–for example, moisturizing and exfoliating. Here are four skin masks that I’ve been using and loving. Read on for more….
LATHER 10 Minute Brightening Mask with Glycolic Acid: If you’re looking to jumpstart sallow, dehydrated skin, this is the mask for you. It’s full of active ingredients including Glycolic and lactic acids to improve skin texture and tone, Kojic acid to reduce hyperpigmentation and even out skin tone, botanical extracts, antioxidants and shea butter to moisturize. The citrus smell alone is reason one more reason that I love this mask. Because it’s such a powerhouse, I try to do it at least once a week. Note–this mask is not for you if you have sensitive skin, $28.
Somme Institute Boost Mask purifies and nourishes skin. When applied to the skin, you feel a gentle warming sensation that increases circulation. Kaolin helps to absorb excess oil and impurities; natural pumpkin enzymes help increase cellular regeneration and exfoliation, Vitamin C strengthens skin elasticity and smoothes the appearance of lines and wrinkles while Vitamin E helps nourish and moisturize the skin.

GLAMGLOW Mud Mask was originally designed for the Hollywood glitterati for camera-ready soft glowing skin. GLAMGLOW is an amazing rapid gentle exfoliant mud mask, high in ancient volcanic rock, French sea clay, super antioxidants and minerals. When you apply the mask, you can feel the super-fine exfoliating crystals. After 10 minutes, skin is softer, smoother and glowing! This is a great mask for all skin types.
June Jacobs Cranberry Pomegranate Moisture Masque is a luxurious masque which combines cranberry extract, a rich source of vitamins, minerals and flavonoids, with extracts of shea butter and sunflower seed oil to replenish the skin. A powerful blend of anti-oxidants makes this an excellent anti-aging masque and one of the most indulgent skin treatments I’ve tried. The Cranberry Pomegranate Moisture Masque is like an in-home spa-treatment. $60.
