Facial masks are a skincare treatment for deep, intensive skin repair and nourishment. There are tons of different kinds of masks out there, so what do you need to know before you choose one? Our guide goes through the most common questions so you can get the answers you need before you shop!
How Do I Use a Mask?
Masks are meant as an occasional treatment and only need to be used once or twice a week. It’s best to apply a mask in the evening, after a warm bath or shower so your pores are open and ready for deep cleaning. You can apply the mask to your whole face or only to problem areas, like under your eyes. Most masks need to be left on the face only ten or fifteen minutes (though some are made to be worn overnight) and can be peeled or washed off.
What Kind of Mask Should I Use?
There are tons of different types of masks: clay, cream, cloth, and gel, just to name a few. Look for a mask that will help your skin’s specific problems.
Oily skin: Clay masks are great for oily skin because they absorb excess oil from the skin and draw dirt and impurities to the surface.
Dry skin: Gel and cream masks will give your skin instant, deep moisture.
Dull skin: Use an exfoliating mask to clear away dead skin and leave your face glowing and radiant.
Mature skin: Look for a firming mask that will tighten and rejuvenate your skin.
