I love masks and (gentle) scrubs. I find they really make my skin glow, and I especially like them heading into spring to alleviate winter dullness. Here are a few that are tempting me now.
Rodial 5 Minute Facial: Rodial is an innovative UK company that marries nature and science. This is a "decongesting" mask that provides "instant firming, lifting and line smoothing" and helps fade age spots and pigmentation. $45, at Murale and The Bay
Dermalogica Skin Refining Masque and Skin Hydrating Masque: Dermalogica has recently retweaked these two popular masks to make them even more effective. The first refines the appearance of pores with natural earth clays. The second boosts moisture with hyaluronic acid and contains carrot root extract, which the company says "converts to Retinoic acid in the skin." $52 each, at select salons and spas
RoC Smoothing Scrub: This has (pink!) micro-exfoliating beads and gentle-to-the-skin moisturizing glycerin. Bentonite clay, a soft cleansing agent, removes excess oils and impurities. $19, at drugstores
