5 Reasons Why You Deserve a Face Mask

Go ahead treat yourself.

We all know that life gets rough. Maybe school is piling on the homework and deadlines are fast approaching. Maybe work has you stressed out and uninspired. Maybe you’re just a little bored, and you need to mix things up! What if I told you there was a universal cure to feeling "blah?" A sweet little piece of serenity that you can have to brighten your day (and your complexion)? Look no further than a face mask! It might not solve all your problems, but it inspires peacefulness and relaxation, which always bring forth positive thoughts and motivation.
If you fit into any of these 5 points below, you deserve a face mask and some time for yourself.

Weekly Refresh
At least 5 times this week, you woke up at some annoying hour, busted your butt at school or your job, and just barely survived to tackle your other responsibilities. Look at you go. I’m proud of you. Now grab a refreshing and moisturizing mask to #treatyoself. You deserve it, and the Origins Drink Up 10 Minute Mask to Quench Skin's Thirst ($31 at Sephora) will give just the refreshment you need.

Hard Day
I’m not just talking about a hard day...I’m talking about a Hard Day. Those kind of days where nothing is going right and frustration and stress are the only things you feel. The kind of days that inspire emo and grunge bands. If you just had one of those days, please reach for a face mask, cuddle up, and think positive thoughts.

Do it for the Gram
From Bella Hadid, to Alison Mosshart, just about everyone on Instagram has posted a pic in their #sheetmasks. Why not hop on this trend because you deserve the likes and comments… oh and the sheet mask’s soothing benefits too! We chose the Boscia Charcoal Pore-Minimizing Hydrogel Mask ($10 at Sephora) because not only does the name make it sounds really effective, but it's also made from 100% vegetable fiber and is pH balanced. Mind blown.

I don’t know about you, but I have most of my creative thoughts when I’m chilling with a mask on and a tea in my hand. I guess it’s because it forces you to sit and think. If you have a mental block or are craving some creativity, you deserve a face mask.

Bonding Moment
You and your fave pal deserve a little relaxation, and what’s better than chilling with a face mask and some life chats? Nothing, that’s what. So #sheetmasksandchill with the perfect 2-pack - Tony Moly Red Wine Pore Care Face Mask set ($9 at Sephora)

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
