Beauty 4 years ago Breaking Down Face Masks
What exactly do face masks do anyway?
We all love a good face mask, but sometimes it’s difficult to know which to use. There are so many options promising different results, it can feel quite overwhelming. While many masks have various healing properties, they usually attack one main area, such as hydration or poor cleansing.
We are breaking down our favorite masks on the market and when to use each.

I like to think of these masks as an extension of my moisturizer. They tend to be lighter weight which I love, and our great for a quick boost of hydration without feeling like you need to leave something on you skin forever. Many hydrating masks can be worn on the go or underneath your skin, as they are often clear and quickly settle into the skin.
This mask is honestly a staple. I love using it under my makeup as a moisturizer and primer. It feels so lightweight, which I love, but totally gets the job done. It's amazing to sleep in for that extra boost of hydration.Shop Now
