The Face Masks That Changed My Skin (for the better)

I've become addicted to face masks (they really do work!) and in this post, I'm sharing my top picks. Committing to a routine of using a mask at least twice a week has without a doubt improved the condition of my skin. I like to rotate the masks I use depending on how my skin is feeling, so the products featured in this list cover a variety of concerns from dehydration to clogged pores.
