In the age of COVID-19, we are constantly talking about masks — how we should be wearing them to protect ourselves and others, trying to find cute ones to go with our outfits, the “mask-ne” breakouts…you get the idea. It is definitely important, but it can get exhausting! Let’s take a break from talking about face masks to talk about better masks…beauty masks that is.
We can’t forget to take some time for ourselves and our skin, especially now. Not only does using a skincare mask improve the wellbeing of your skin, it can improve your mood and your mental health. It’s all about that moment of peace where you’re totally focusing on taking care of yourself.
We have compiled a list of some of our favorite masks for any situation. Whether you are dealing with a breakout or you are just taking a day for yourself, there is a mask here for you!
