All The Face Masks You Need For A Little More "You Time" In 2017
Between Darby’s fashion studies and my writing gigs keeping each of us very busy, we’ve been on another level with our stress rates recently. Given that January is a month where everyone’s trying to start fresh and stick to those resolutions, we figured we can’t be the only ones freaking out lately.
But, when you get that way, all you can really try and do is take some time just to breathe deeply and take a moment to relax. Trust us, we know it’s easier said than done. We’ll be here right along with you steady trying to make an effort to do that more.
So, in the spirit of relaxation, we’ve rounded up some of the best face masks to do at home because really, who has time to go and get a facial — no matter how badly you need/deserve it?
These face masks need to be on your face for about 20 minutes, so when you slather them on, take those 20 minutes and do something for you. Listen to music, have a mini solo dance party, enjoy a laugh sesh, online shop, scroll through Pinterest — whatever keeps you sane, you know?
Meanwhile, if all of this stress has been causing breakouts, the face mask will take care of that. Your skin needs a break just as badly as you do, you know?

2. Brightening Mask
