Like my fellow beauty-trend chasers, I’m obsessed with at-home skin treatments—in particular, sheet face masks. I’ve done the American clay-cleansing one (Glam Glow), the Japanese pitera-immersed one (SK-ii), and the French grape marc-enriched one (Caudalie), to name a few. I recently read about Nannette de Gaspé’s dry face mask on Vogue.com (in which it was dubbed the “Canadian skin phenomenon”), and knew I had to try it. Could the best skin mask be made right here in my home and native land?
