Face masks play a key role in any effective skincare routine. Using a face mask can give the skin a healthy glow no matter how stressed, tired, or dehydrated it can be. There is no skin-care routine that is more indulgent than doing a face mask. Giving your face some TLC for 20 to 30 minutes to take care of your skin is important. Face masks are designed to offer high concentrations of active ingredients to care for our skin and give it a boost. There are many different types of masks to choose from such as mud, peel-off gel and more, and on top of that, there are tons of different formula options depending on the skin type, and specific functions for skin health. This makes it difficult to find the right mask for you.
In order to make it easier for you to make a good shopping decision, here are the best face masks from popular picks to dermatologist-recommended favorites for you to do your own self-care at home and revitalize your complexion.
