There has not been a better recent beauty trend than peel-off face masks. They are thorough and oh so satisfying. The formula in the face mask works into your pores for a deeper clean than your typical moisturizers, and they are designed to harden just enough so you cannot just rinse it off, making the treatment that much more effective. Not to mention, you then have the pleasure of slowly peeling back the mask, revealing your hopefully radiant skin underneath. You’ll get addicted to the experience.
These days, 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 and can remove blackheads and whiteheads; those with normal skin will enjoy the fresh, moisturizing feeling they get after a nice peel. If you sensitive or dry skin, you should be careful to avoid causing damage during the peeling stage.

You can enjoy cleaner, clearer skin on a budget and feel as though you have indulged extravagantly.
