If you are looking for something a little adventurous to hydrate your skin, you may want to check out masks using donkey milk. Donkey milk is rich in Vitamins B3, B5, B6, C, E, and a multitude of bio-polymers.

This mask is free from any mineral oils, paraben, ethanol, and any artificial pigments making it another choice product for those with sensitive skin.
This formula not only strengthens skin but also helps create a “protective barrier” that helps prevent further damage from environmental factors.
Many people may be a little grossed out by the snail, but that natural compound that keeps them slimy actually does wonders for the skin. Mucin, an ingredient and snail slime, not only keeps the skin moist and elastic, but it purifies the skin.

While on the topic of bugs in beauty, bees are actually making a big BUZZ in the cosmetics industry. Bee venom is rising in popularity as an ingredient in beauty products, and unlike snake venom masks, there is nothing synthetic going on there. Exposing your skin to bee venom actually tricks your body into producing more collagen and elastin, naturally hydrating and elasticizing your skin.

Broccoli is one of the most popular superfoods on the market. We all grew up being told the benefits of finishing your vegetables at dinner, but is it really still good to rub it all over your skin?
Actually yes. Broccoli is a very vitamin and nutrient-rich food. Applying the broccoli formula onto your skin delivers all of those healthy properties directly to your skin making it radiant and youthful.
This mask contains a unique combination of ingredients, most notable being jellyfish abstracts from which the mask gets its name. The jellyfish collagen rejuvenates the skin and smoothes out wrinkles, while mucins moisturize and smooth the skin.
Additionally, extracts from Centella Asiatica and Camellia Sinensis Leaf help stimulate collagen synthesis and encourage connective tissue growth. All and all, this face mask does a little bit of everything without using any harsh ingredients.
Salmon has become a marker of high-society, and not surprisingly, recent studies have found that salmon is great for your skin. It has been found to be a much safer alternative to the popular Glycolic acid, as it improves the appearance of skin without causing irritation.
