Looking for suggestions on facial masks. My skin doesn’t really break out anymore (I’m 39) and it has gotten so dry but mostly in my t-zone and then more oily on my cheeks. Like total opposite of when I was younger! I also have some redness. Anyone have a good hydrating kind that they love? Anything anti-aging is welcome too!

Or any other types of treatments besides masks as well!

In terms of hydrating masks, maybe try Farmacy honey potion. It’s a hydration mask with antioxidants that’s pretty nice.
Other treatments for dryness would be moisturizers and oils. For me, an essence to prime the skin before additional products has really helped. Currently, I’m using Saturday Skin waterfall glacier water cream and Youth to the People’s superberry hydrate and glow oil- both of which I’ve re-purchased. Hope that helps!

low end: st ives oatmeal scrub/mask
Higher end: rodial stem cells 2 in 1 cleanser and mask
I use both of these exclusively as masks, I don’t use them as cleansers, I wash my face with dove bar soap

first I would use cosmedix pure enzyme mask it will gently exfoliate dry dead dull skin it’s gentle and gives your skin a glow. Arcana wine mask is my favorite hydrating mask that stays with your skin even after you rinse it off I use it all year even in the summer when I’m more combination skin. REN evercalm is a great hydrating calming mask that helps with redness any any irritation.

I LOVE skin care and can give you a bunch of suggestions! I really love sheet masks. In fact, I use one anywhere from 3-5 times a week! Usually at night, while I am relaxing with a book. For drugstore available options, I *REALLY* love two by Soap and Glory: the party recovery mask and the miracle moisture speed plump mask. The party recovery one has a really plesant citrus scent. I like to store the masks in the fridge so when I apply them, they feel great and help take down any redness or inflammation. If you like going to Sephora, I like the Dr. Jart sheet masks also- they’re about $6-$8 apiece.

Isomers Moisture Mask–it’s a gel and you can use it all over your face, including your eyes. It’s primarily Sodium Hyaluronate and aloe. It sinks in without leaving any residue.
I put it on before my serums, sometimes twice a day depending how brutal cold the the weather is, from my hairline to my bust line.

I have recently discovered my new favorite skin care product – TCA Acid peels.
I acknowledge that these peels are deep and that not everyone should be performing them at home.
Where I live, a TCA peel goes for $500 in a medi Spa type setting or in a Dermatologist’s office. I recently began to wonder if these products could be purchased and applied at home.
There is a YouTuber (Natural Caos) who has posted very informative tutorials that you might want to check out.
I purchased the acid, numbing cream, sunblocks and after-care products for under $100. I did a 25% TCA peel on my face, shoulders, neck, chest and tops of arms and love the results. I look very fresh and it did wonders for the fine lines around my eyes, mouth and between my eyebrows. The only negative was the discomfort and recovery time. I looked like I was 150 years old while waiting for the skin to peel.
This weekened I applied 35% TCA to my hands will most likely begin peeling tomorrow.
Just thought I’d pass on the suggestion.
