Why facemasks should be more than a sometimes thing

Still can’t figure out how facemasks fit into your beauty regime? We feel you.

How do you know if you’re masking too little, masking too much, or masking just enough? As far as home beauty treatments go, face masks are one of the best. They smell amazing, can be tailored to your skincare needs, and unlike tweezing and waxing, putting on a facemask doesn’t even hurt. They’re a low key way to inject a bit of glamour into your every day – cucumber slices, slippers and fluffy robe optional.                                      

The ‘how to’ of most mask products is pretty universal – rub on face, wait a while, then rinse off with water. But not all face masks are created equal, and some can be used more frequently than others. 

To make figuring this out easier, we hit the beauty floor to ask the experts: which masks can we use daily? Which are best applied weekly? And which top-shelf elixirs should we be indulging in for special occasions?  

Here’s what we discovered.
