One of my favorite guilty pleasures is having a facial mask party with my friends. We sip wine, browse through our favorite fashion magazines and chat about the wacky happenings of our lives, all while wearing skin care masks and letting them do their magic on our mugs. There’s something so satisfying about this little ritual and the instant glow our skin radiates after a good mask treatment. With so many options out there that help with anti-aging, acne, pore shrinkage, etc., I decided to check out some of the latest and greatest masks, and discovered that sheet masks are my new favorite beauty product, EVER! Plus, they scare the hell out of my dog when I wear them (which never gets old). From hydrogel, to charcoal to green tea and beyond, here are a dozen of my favorite face masks to try this season for a beautiful glow.
