Harsh wind topped with stress, lack of sleep and over-worked skin; these are signs that it needs some extra lovin’. If a spa facial doesn’t make the cut in your current budget, facial masks should be your go-to in giving your skin exactly what it needs.
Speaking from experience, facial masks are a great way to give your skin time to re-energise once or twice a week, and maybe you could even throw in a little mani-pedi while you’re at it. You’ll realise how magic it is to spending 10 minutes on your skin can make a huge difference.
Below is a list of some of the best, affordable masks for different skin types to reset your healthy, glowing skin. Perfect for those who need an instant facial!
