Glow, radiance, healthy skin, hydration. Do you want to get glowing skin after 50? If you want to get the glow back to your skin masks are a great resource for mature skin. When you need some help to add those attributes to your skin nothing substitute proper skin care, but there is a temporary short cut, masks. There are some great masks that can bring back the glow.
Today I share with you some fabulous masks that leave my skin looking amazing (and younger). These are my favorite exfoliating and hydrating masks that bring the glow back. I have tried a zillion masks, the ones I am sharing today I know work very well and I keep them in my bathroom. The following products are good for all skin types including the temperamental ones (sensitive) like mine.
Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask with Echinacea GreenEnvy™
A funky name for a great mask. It is a light skin exfoliant, it hydrates and leaves the skin feeling and looking amazing, smooth, soft, glowing and radiant, the sexy glow returns. This is currently my favorite mask. I have sensitive skin and this mask does not irritate at all. The only con is it price.

How to use this mask?
I used it once a week; less sensitive skin types can use it more often. I also use honey masks sometimes (from my pantry) and although the results are similar, my skin responds better to this mask. A yogurt mask may give a more similar effect.
Fresh Rose Face Mask
This mask feel so luxurious, this is in part because of its rosy smell, which comes from rose water and rose extracts. My skin feels very hydrated, calm, soft and fresh after I use it. It is mainly a hydrating mask and it helps temporarily reduce pore size. It is ideal when we need more hydration; however, I think for extreme conditions it is not the best (such as, after skiing). This is the way to get glowing and smell the roses at the same time.
