Instead of going out tonight, why not cozy up at home with a face mask? Whether you're addicted to them or a newbie you know they help your skin in so many ways, from moisturizing to adding radiance. No worries if your complexion has tons of quirks — there are different types for everyone. Get in your PJs and let the fun begin.
You've seen these all over Instagram—and they're more than just a fun selfie opp. Sheet masks are face-shaped fabrics soaked in serum (aka: a nutrition-packed solution) to deliver benefits like hydration or soothing blemishes. Use them once, then toss them. You're likely to see instant results.
Pro tip: After removing the mask, gently pat the excess solution on your face until it's fully absorbed. Die-hard sheet maskers even use up any extra serum left in the packaging.

MUD / CLAY MASKS
Mud and clay masks can benefit oily skin, which is prone to breakouts. A clay mask is best for absorbing excess dirt and oil; it literally sucks out all the gunk in your pores. Mud masks help exfoliate naturally—they are gently massaged into dampened facial skin to allow the abrasive particles to scrub away dead skin cells. Both clay and mud masks fight acne, help you keep a youthful glow and improve your skin's elasticity.
Pro Tip: Don't use soap or cleanser to remove a clay mask. Warm water should be enough!
