Why this model loves a $7 face mask made from cactus

Yes, a desert plant is the secret to Mia Kang's glow!

Sheet masks are a major thing, with major celebrity fans. Zendaya swears by them. As does Chris Pratt.

Add model Mia Kang to that list. She professes her love of masks, which are soaked in serums and other hydrating or clarifying ingredients and applied directly to your face (or eyes). They come in a variety of prices, so you can go super fancy, as with this one by 3Lab, or keep things more affordable.

"I am utterly obsessed. I did one today already. I use all different kinds of masks," Kang told Megyn Kelly TODAY. "I do them on my face. I do them on my eyes."

She is an equal-opportunity masker and is open to playing with anything, from any brand, including Dr. Jart masks made with cactus and marine collagen.

She even uses them in public. "If you were to see someone on an airplane in a mask, it’s probably me. I do two a day sometimes. I do the ones that tuck behind the ears. I love Korean brands. I love Dr. Jart. I try all different ones," she said.
