Investing in self-care is crucial to your wellness. When life gets too busy, taking a few moments to do something for yourself can nourish the soul. One of our favourite ways to unwind is to put on a face mask. On days when we feel particularly grimy, however, and our skin starts showing signs of being overburdened by heavy makeup and city stress, not just any sheet mask will do. For these, we turn to a good detox mask to cleanse our skin. Here we round up some of our favourite detox masks that help restore our skin back to health.
