Recently it seems that much of the industry’s attention has been focused on face masks, and as a result these pampering products are more effective than ever. Read on to find the one to suit your needs.
For tired skin… The Body Shop Chinese Ginseng and Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask, $32.90

For city dwellers… Elizabeth Arden Prevage City Smart Double Action Peel Off Mask
Antioxidants are key when it comes to protecting the skin against pollution and other environmental irritants, and this peel-off mask is full of them.
