face treatment routine

Not that I have much time to do this these days, but spending some time pampering my skin is one of my favorite things to do. It's amazing how refreshed my skin feels and looks for days after I put a little extra effort into it. One of the ways I do this is with face masks. I couldn't tell you how many I have because I think there's a little obsession involved, but I do have my favorites. I've shared some favorites before here and here, too.

Today I'm sharing the masks that are in my current rotation. I'm also showing other face treatments, too, like how I massage my face to reduce puffiness and how I use my NuFace Trinity. This is a facial toning device that uses non-invasive microcurrent technology to brighten & tighten the skin. It basically gives you a mini face lift with as little as 5 minutes of use per day! No, I'm not paid to say this, but I truly notice big results with this thing. 

Giveaway alert! My friends with NuFace would like to give one of you a NuFace Mini, worth $200!
