7 Of The Best Natural Face Masks Money Can Buy

clay face mask

Is your skin begging for a pick-me-up? Put one of these natural face masks on your shopping list.

Making your own nourishing facial mask is easy and cheap, but it does take time and the right ingredients. If you’re busy, or your pantry is bare, buying natural face masks is the next best thing–but don’t just grab the first one you see.

The beauty aisle is crowded with products that claim to be natural face masks, but are chock full of unnecessary toxic ingredients that could actually irritate your skin and affect your health. Which defeats the entire purpose!

Not to worry, we at EcoSalon poked around to find some of the best natural face masks on the market. If you can’t (or just don’t want to) make a DIY face mask, these are a worthy substitute.
