Whether we like it or not, the fall and winter in Colorado brings dry skin. For some of us this means overly sensitive skin, breakouts and redness. As much as we try to reduce these problems, sometimes the only solution is a little TLC.

Whether you’re a woman or man, everyone needs to take that extra step to care of your skin during these next harsh months ahead. And good news: it doesn’t have to be hard. A good face mask is an easy way to feed your skin the nutrients it’s yearning for.

From department store favorites to homemade regimens,

here are 5 face masks for a healthy, fall glow:

Affordably Natural

Want a face mask made of all-natural ingredients and is cruelty free? LUSH has a variety of masks to choose from. Every mask it offers is handmade with all-natural, fresh ingredients featuring essential oils, fresh fruits,and vegetables. You’ll find these masks stored in a small fridge at your local LUSH store. We recommend the Oatfix mask for those winter months that are coming up. This mask is made of fresh bananas and soothes dry, flaky skin. In case you need a deep cleansing to keep your young skin firm, LUSH recommends its Sacred Truth mask that is said to restore skin. The best part of all is that these masks run for a very decent price.

More Money for High-end Brand

If you’ve got some cash burning a hole in your pocket, you may just want to go for La Mer’s Hydrating Facial. This spa-like facial product is known for its luxurious experience. It targets dry skin and leaves it looking youthful and hydrated. Dark spots and discoloration also seem to fade with the continuous use of this mask. It’s super soft and comes in cotton embedded with tourmaline. But if you want all this, it’ll cost ya. The mask runs at $250.00 with only 6 applications.



Glamorous Glow

Glamglow is known for its role in Hollywood as a super clearing face mask and is also known for its visible transformation of skin in just one application. The Supermud Clearing Treatment was developed by a chemist to address everyday skin concerns. Have breakouts, discoloration, razor bumps or black heads? The Supermud Clearing Treatment is made to target all these problems in one jar. The mud is designed to draw out toxins and dirt while a six-acid blend brightens and softens the skin. This mask is also made without parabens, sulfates or phthalates.




Diamond Skincare, Anyone?

If you thought the price of La Mer was bad, you have no idea what’s coming next. A company named Forever Flawless is now infusing real diamonds and gold into its face mask. The 24k Gold Nourishing Mask is said to tone, refine and nourish aging skin leaving it firm and fresh. Now we’re not sure how well this mask works considering it’s way out of our price range, but for $999.00 you can let us know.




Want to keep it simple and cheap? A DIY face mask is the way to go. While there are plenty of recipes out there an Aloe Avocado mask can always get the job done.

This mask is easy to make and all you need are the ingredients mashed altogether. Apply and enjoy, by finding our recipe below.
