You cleanse, you exfoliate, you moisturize—and I really do hope you protect your skin. But there's this whole other category that tends to get lost in the skincare shuffle—the ridiculously efficacious (and wildly popular amongst industry insiders like skincare pros and beauty editors) world of face masks. Masks can do a number of things—tighten pores, calm angry skin, boost radiance, increase moisture levels, bestow a glow, exfoliate deeply, temporarily decrease the appearance of fine lines so. much.more*. More than ever, we're seeing brands launch heavy-hitting masks loaded with skincare saving ingredients and loaded with antioxidants. Moreover, the idea of giving yourself a facial (albeit a mini one) is a really easy way to destress. My current Sunday night obsession is spending an hour masking (think of it as a facial, but with multiple masks)—but when I don't have time, I always gravitate toward Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask.

It doesn't dry and crack, and since the formula is fairly translucent, you won't scare your dog/boyfriend/husband when you emerge from the bathroom. As well, you'll feel a gentle tightening but nothing overtly uncomfortable, so you can go about your at-home projects while the masks sinks in. And the simple fact that the ingredients are 100% natural is simply a bonus. The Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask is $61 and is available online at BeautyMark.ca and starting February 1st, at PureandSimple.ca. Both are based in Canada and ship easily across the entire country. *You just need to be careful when using them, because some lean closer to peels and can aggravate you skin or cause a reaction in a matter of seconds. Do a patch test when you're testing them out, and try patting a small amount of the formula on to the back of your hand.
