Stress, pollution, unhealthy diet and lack of exercise, all these things tend to age our skin. A face mask will save the skin giving it a nice glow and freshness to look and feel healthier.
How to choose a face mask: First, you have to define your skin type. Mine is combination to oily but is strong enough to allow me to try any mask I want. I suffered from acne at the age of twenty, but now in my mid-thirties, my skin is better than ever. I am a face mask junkie, I have tried tons of masks and I have plenty more to try!
Oily skin: I like using masks with clay because clay has the ability to deep cleanse our pores and remove anything that our skin attracts during the day.
Dry skin: If you have dry skin, choose a hydrating mask that will provide extra hydration and reduce the pulling sensation. Also, an overnight mask would be a good idea; they are so popular at the moment, and although I haven't tried an overnight mask yet, I know that they do an amazing job to the skin while you sleep.
Troubled skin: choose a mask with antioxidants to clean the face but be careful of the ingredients because you don't want to irritate it.
I usually do a face mask 2-3 times per week. I apply the mask and I leave it on for 10-15 minutes, but sometimes I leave it longer as I want the ''good stuff '' to enter my skin and the mask to be fully absorbed. I relax and when I remove it, my face feels incredible, more fresh and youthful.
Do you use face masks? If yes, how often and what kind of masks?
