How often do you utilize face masks? I work keep my skin clear, moisturized, healthy and youthful. Since being a teenager my mom always stressed the importance of healthy skincare which I’ve carried out throughout the years. I’m now 42 year old and people often find it hard to believe when they find out my age. I attribute it to healthy skincare practices and not allowing stress to take over.
While I’m not always perfectly consistent, I work to be as consistent as possible with giving myself a face mask twice per week but at least once per week. I am a bit picky about my face masks and have overtime learned to find quality high end and affordable drug store face masks.
I have normal to dry skin and that means the masks that I use have to be moisturizing but still give that clearing affect. I’ve often tried mud masks in particular which have dried my skin leaving it uncomfortable and feeling tight but not in a good way. It accentuates wrinkles, accentuates flaking dry patches, and gives my skin an irritable stinging/burning feeling.
After trying many mud masks I finally found my favorite which unfortunately, is no longer easily found and possibly no longer being sold. My all time fav Orit masks which I’m wearing in the the photo above is the Miracle Skin Transformer Miracle Mud mask. I absolutely love this mask because it literally transforms my skin in one application. My skin is left moisturized, has a healthy glow, makes my pores nearly invisible, and my skin feels smooth like silk after every application. These are all the qualities that I look for in a mud mask.
I found my last jar on eBay but you have to be careful because there are fake versions out there. I knew this one was authentic because the last ones began being sold in a set along with a night cream. I couldn’t find the authentic versions anywhere else online and this one was being sold by an individual, was brand new and the package was un-opened.
Now I’m on the hunt for a new perfect mud mask. If you have any suggestions of your favorite mud masks please leave them in the comments section below!
On another note… I’d love to share with you some of my other favorite masks that are not mud masks but work great. I’ll be sharing both drug store and higher end masks that I love below.
This is one of my favorite drug store clay masks that clarifies my skin and is my go to mask if I get a breakout. It purges dirt and oils from my pores and helps to minimize them. My skin looks clear, bright, and feels squeaky clean and soft to the touch. This mask is also perfect for normal to combination skin.
