Between classes, part-time jobs and clubs, life as a collegiette can be stressful and jam-packed. While we want to keep our skin looking healthy and fresh, taking 20 to 30 minutes out of our day to sit around in a face mask is just not always possible. Get the same results in less than half that time! Here are seven masks that take 10 minutes or less, and still leave your skin glowing!
This combination mask and scrub works to detox your skin. The oil and impurities are first absorbed (without over-drying!), and the black sugar then helps exfoliate dulling skin cells. The mask is perfect for all skin types, and only has to be left on for 5 to 7 minutes!
