6 Non-Toxic Face Masks That Will Instantly Improve Your Skin
If you haven’t added a non-toxic face mask to your skincare routine, it’s time to reconsider! Face masks offer high levels of concentrated active ingredients and can quickly improve skin’s appearance, texture and address most basic skincare concerns. A face mask that truly delivers can assist skin that is dry, dull, irritated, oily, bumpy, red, or breakout prone.
I personally love a great face mask! Not only because of the instant results—brighter, tighter, smoother skin but also because I love the ritual of applying a mask. I love that I am taking time for me. Putting everyone and everything else on pause to pamper myself. The ability to treat myself to something luxurious at home always feels therapeutic.
These are a few of my all time favorite masks. Some take as little as three minutes, some need to stay on five times as long. I keep these masks in rotation to combat a handful of specific skincare needs. A few of these products might feel a bit pricey but without a doubt are worth it. They are all skincare game changers, in their own right.
Here are six non-toxic face masks that will instantly improve the look and feel of your skin.

Kora Organics’ Turmeric Brightening and Exfoliating Mask will bring life to dull skin, decongest pores, clear up buildup and smoothes skin texture.

Goop’s beauty product collab with Juice beauty has produced one of the best instant gratification face masks I’ve ever experienced. Natural alpha and beta hydroxy acids reveal glowing revitalized skin in three minutes flat. The Exfoliating Instant Facial Mask turns tired, textured, dull skin into smooth, tight, and refreshed skin. The fact that you only have to leave it on for three minutes but reap such skin-changing benefits is why this is my number one go-to quick fix for when my skin needs some extra loving. It might come with a hefty price tag, but it most definitely will not disappoint. If you are only going to invest in one mask this year, then this would be the one to buy!
