In lieu of a proper facial at a beauty parlour, a facial mask is the perfect home remedy for lazy people like me. I however am so lazy about this skincare thing, I don’t even have a proper routine. I use whatever is cheap and at hand so I’m always switching brands, buying whatever is on sale. Here are some facial masks I’ve used in the past month:
Most of these were stolen from my sister’s stash as I’m too skint to buy my own. I like the Clinque Emergency Mask for major breakouts – they soothe the skin really quickly and make me presentable overnight. I however don’t like messing around with liquidy things unless absolutely necessary. I most prefer the pre-moistened types where you just pop over your face. The excess liquid can be used over the neck and decolletage area. If I can afford it, I’ll use one every night when I go to bed. It really works! When I wake up in the morning, I swear my face feels so much softer. It’s easy too! Put it on, go to bed, take it off in the morning when you get out of bed. During busy periods when I don’t get enough sleep (say between 5 to 6 hours at most), I’ll put one on every night. I don’t look like crap the next day and it really helps.
