Face masks are so awesome because the formula works into your pores for a deeper clean than your typical moisturizers. Most masks harden while they're on your face, so you can slowly peel them off and reveal radiant skin underneath.
But peel-off face masks are a dime a dozen, appearing in every beauty store’s bargain bin as an impulse buy, so which brands can you trust? Well, first, you have to know your skin type. Masks tend to work best on oily skin, removing blackheads and whiteheads. If your skin is dry or sensitive, then you'll want to choose a mask that's specific to your skin type to avoid causing any damage when peeling it off.
