Now that we’re in 2017, Spring’s not far around the corner. And just as both homes and properties can benefit from pre-Spring cleanups, so can your face. Facial treatments are a great way to remove dead skin, clear away accumulated oils and embedded dirt, open up your pores, and clean your face. And face masks are an effective, invigorating way to get your face back in shape for the sun (and wear and tear) of summer. Below are five of the top facial masks out there to help your face feel and look better in 2017.
Too Cool For School Egg Cream Firming Mask
The protein in eggs makes both the whites and yolks of “chicken fruit” a great natural facial. Too Cool For School combines this with ingredients like collagen to reduce bags and puffiness. Twenty minutes with this mask will give you a cleaner, tauter look. But do be careful to stay within prescribed time limits. Over-“eggsposing” your skin to this food product can dry it out.
Mannatech’s Uth Face Mask
Discover the age-defying “K-Beauty” secret used by many Korean women with this hydrating mask from Mannatech (see Mannatech’s Facebook page). Individually wrapped in foil packets to hold in moisture, this package effectively delivers a drink to your thirsty face whenever it’s most needed, and reduces the dryness and lines caused by under-hydrated skin exposed to too much sun.
Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask
“Clay masks” have been a popular beauty regime for thousands of years. The right kind of soil can effectively sooth and clean skin, and Elizavecca’s update is carbonated for additional gentle scrubbing action.
St.Ives Nourished and Smooth Oatmeal Scrub + Mask
This offering from one of the world’s best known moisturizer manufacturers contains two ingredients that human skin absolutely loves. Oatmeal and honey both very gently clean and sooth skin. This mask carefully sloughs off old skin and strips away dirt. The result is healthy skin that glows, without the redness that facial cleansings can cause.
Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask
Active charcoal is one of the most effective treatments for removing toxins from the body. When applied to the face, it can effectively clean out pores, and reduce their size. Combined with several other natural ingredients like white clay, this mask can result in a markedly approved appearance after just a few weeks of use.
