Facial and spa treatments that we used to get at our favorite salon are now becoming more and more readily available in at-home versions. One such beauty product that's effective and super simple to DIY is the facial mask. Whether it comes in mask or peel form, the facial mask is a quick way to rectify any skin type. You just have to know what to look for! Well, that's where we come in. Check out our tips for the best type of facial mask for different skin types, then click on the slideshow to see some of our favorites!Normal Skin - This is a simple one! For you, a facial mask should just be for maintenance and prevention. Look for moisturizing face masks chock full of vitamin C or anti-oxidants. Apply a face mask once every 2 weeks.Oily Skin - Look for a clay mask or a facial peel that will mattify and control shine. Steer clear of anything that's super moisturizing as this can lead to even more shine. Try a mask once a week for optimum results!Dry Skin - A facial mask once a week can do wonders for dry skin. Look for options that have vitamin E and are highly moisturizing. A quick tip for a little added hydration? Smooth on a dime sized amount of night cream after your done with the facial mask!
Let's get something straight - the last thing my makeup collection needs is another lip gloss that I obsessively collect but won't actually use. But if you're a gloss fiend like me, you know you're inevitably going to buy more lip products despite your better judgment, so the least you can do is limit your spending to quality products that multitask! Take L'Occitane's Pivoine Flora Lip Shine, for instance. The shimmery, lightweight formula, which ranges in shade from shiny nude to ripe ruby red, doesn't just provide the perfect sheen of flattering tint, but also pampers lips with soothing properties for a smooth application and soothed lips! Infused with peony extract, the Pivoine Flora non-sticky gloss contains peony extract for a delicate floral scent and to protect and pamper lips, helping them look and feel fabulously smooth the more you wear it! If this triple-duty lip shine isn't worth adding to your never-ending collection of makeup, you might as well give up the gloss cold turkey!Brought to you by our friends from TheFind!
